trabecular tissue of sclera

(redirected from trabecular network)

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).

Only treatment with E and GEN showed an improvement in the trabecular network in comparison to the osteoporotic control.
There was an increase in trabecular bone volume fraction (reflecting a denser trabecular network), trabecular thickness and trabecular number by CC extract with a corresponding reduction in trabecular spacing and bone surface density.
Increase in trabecular bone volume fraction (reflecting a denser trabecular network) by Isoformo predominantly resulted from an increased trabecular thickness, with a corresponding reduction in space.
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.
The discovery of the CYP1B1 gene in PCG emphasizes the importance of abnormalities in the molecular structure of proteins expressed in cells of the trabecular network as a cause of PCG.
Moreover, combination therapy with ZOL plus PRO was statistically superior to ZOL or PRO monotherapy in increasing Tb.Th and suppressing the decrease in Tb.N, both of which are indices for the trabecular network. These parameters indicate that combination therapy with ZOL plus PRO promotes osteogenesis, thickens trabecular bone, and strengthens trabecular connectivity.
In the first route (called the conventional or trabecular route), the fluid flows out of the anterior chamber through openings in a loose fibrous spongy tissue (the trabecular network) located at the junction between the iris and cornea.
Individual trabecula segmentation technique, which can decompose the trabecular bone network into individual trabecular plates and rods, was developed [14, 15]; meanwhile, a method for subdividing a trabecular network into horizontal and vertical oriented trabeculae was also put forward [8].
There was increase in trabecular bone volume fraction (reflecting a denser trabecular network) and trabecular number by compound 1 with a corresponding reduction in trabecular spacing.
In healthy eyes, the fluid exits via tiny drainage channels (called the trabecular network) at the angle where the cornea and iris meet--but if the fluid drains too slowly through the meshwork, it can back up in the eye.
in 2013 (18) observed architectural deterioration in the trabecular network of the femora mainly attributed to the reduced number of trabeculae in suspended rats, assessed by computerized microtomography.
Most of the aqueous outflow occurs through trabecular network and canal of Schlemm passing through progressively smaller pores which make up trabecular network and through the cells lining the wall of the canal.
