This book provides a contemporary resource on one of the major players in retinal diseases the Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE). Throughout the book, the physiological and the pathological function of the RPE are covered on equal terms, to help readers to . Congenital abnormalities of the RPE may be divided into focal, diffuse, and mixed categories. In focal lesions, such as congenital hypertrophy of the RPE (CHRPE), only a circumscribed group of cells are morphologically different from the rest of the RPE. In some metabolic diseases, such as albinism, on the other hand, all RPE cells are abnormal.

  This chapter presents the diagnosis and treatment for retinal pigment epithelial dystrophy (RPED), which is a disease of the retinal pigment epithelium. RPED is marked by the pathological accumulation of lipofuscin and may be associated with more widespread secondary retinal degeneration.

This book provides a contemporary resource on one of the major players in retinal diseases – the Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE). Throughout the book, the physiological and the pathological function of the RPE are covered on equal terms, to help readers to.

The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is a monolayer of highly pigmented cells that form the outer blood–retina barrier and performs many critical functions that support photoreceptor health and integrity (reviewed in (Strauss, )).

Retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) constitute a simple layer of cuboidal cells that are strategically situated behind the photoreceptor (PR) inconspicuousness of this monolayer contrasts sharply with its importance [].The relationship between the RPE and PR cells is crucial to sight; this is evident from basic and clinical studies demonstrating that primary Cited by: Background.

Since the begining of the last century much attention has been focused on tumour vascularization. Warren Lewis (1), inand Gordon Ide, in (2), had already considered the hypothesis of synthesis of a vascular growth factor by tumour cells.

The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is an specialized epithelium lying in the interface between the neural retina and the choriocapillaris where it forms the outer blood-retinal barrier (BRB).

The main functions of the RPE are the following: (1) transport of nutrients, ions, and water, (2) absorption of light and protection against photooxidation, (3) reisomerization of all-transCited by: RPED was characterised by the accumulation of auto-fluorescent lipofuscin-like inclusions in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), which initially involved only non-pigmented RPE cells overlying.

This pigmented layer of cells next to the retina serves as a pass-through between the light-sensitive photoreceptors of the retina and a layer of blood vessels, called the choroid, lying below.

It lies directly behind the retina, where it provides metabolic support to the photoreceptors and controls their local environment. As a result, the RPE is vital to retinal function, but also a site of aging and disease that cause dysfunction and visual loss.

R. Sparrrow, D. Hicks and C. P. Hamel Affiliation:Departments of.The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) occupies an interesting anatomical location, situated between a high-flow network of blood vessels (the choroid) and the most metabolically active cells in the body (the photoreceptors).

Its position alone would suggest that the RPE has an important role in both normal physiologic processes and disease.However, visual recovery after CNV excision in AMD patients is usually poor because of removal of adjacent native retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and damage to the subjacent Bruch's membrane (i.e., removal of the RPE basement membrane and, to varying degrees, portions of the inner collagenous layer [ICL] of the Bruch's membrane) [] as well as incomplete RPE .
