The Extensibilty of the Albino Rabbit Sclera after Cryoapplication and Diathermy

  • 1Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.


The extensibility of the albino rabbit sclera was measured after cryoapplication and diathermy on the equator of sclera and these extensibilities were compared with normal control. For cryoapplication, 95% alcohol and solid carbon dioxide mixture was used and this cryoprobe was applied on the equator of rabbit sclera of right eye for 3 seconds. Castroviejo apparatus was used for diathermy and nonperforating surface diathermy was performed on the equator of rabbit sclera of left eye for one second with current of 30mA. Immediately after cryoapplication and diathermy, the extension rates of sclera were 2.556% and 6.039%, respectively. The extension rates of one week after cryoapplication and diathermy were 3.234 % and 4.127%, respectively. The extension rate of two weeks after diathermy was 3.489%. Normal control was 3.055%.
