Hintergrund: Animal-tests of epi- and subretinal implants that have been designed to replace the function of degenerated photoreceptors in diseases like retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
Methode: In-vitro tests were performed with isolated retinae from chicken and RCS rats by recording of retinal responses to electrical stimulation. In-vivo function tests were performed in acutely and chronically prepared anaesthetized cats, minipigs, and rabbits. Surgery was accomplished prior to in-vivo testing of complete implants and wire-activated retinal electrode arrays. Responses to electrical retina stimulation were recorded from the optic nerve and from primary visual cortex (areae A17/18) either with intracortically positioned fibre electrodes, epidurally placed electrodes, or by optical imaging. From the stimulus-response data we estimated advanta­geous stimulation parameters, calculated the retino-cortical information transfer, and estimated the spatial and temporal resolution achievable with electrical retina stimulation.
Ergebnisse: In-vitro and in-vivo experiments
