trabecular tissue of sclera

[TA]
the network of fibers (pectinate ligaments) at the iridocorneal angle between the anterior chamber of the eye and the venous sinus of the sclera; it contains spaces between the fibers that are involved in drainage of the aqueous humor and is composed of two portions: the corneoscleral part (the part attached to the sclera) and the uveal part (the part attached to the iris).

Microscopically, the tumor comprised nests of granular eosinophilic (oncocytic) cells in a trabecular network with wrinkled nuclei, minimal nuclear atypia, and areas with perinuclear halos (Figure).
just above the trabecular network, the fluid passes through tiny pores into a vessel (the Schlemm canal).
Goniotomy is one procedure that can be used and involves the removal of tissue with the aid of a goniolens, thus relieving the compressive forces on the anterior part of the uvea and the trabecular network.
Taking into consideration that the trabecular network is fundamental for the biomechanical properties of cancellous bone (22,23), these structural changes are most probably the explanation for the increased bone fragility.
Only treatment with E and GEN showed an improvement in the trabecular network in comparison to the osteoporotic control.
