Figure 9. Scale 3D-CAD reconstructions of PSC internalization in RCS rats
Internalization of the plaque began between 2 and 2.5 months postnatal. By 2 months postnatal, new fiber growth accumulated at the perimeter of the plaque, which was separated from the capsule. The posterior ends of new fibers interfaced with fiber ends of the plaque, forming an abnormal suture plane across the visual axis. Between 2.5 and 3 months postnatal the PSC was completely covered by new fiber growth, after which fibers began forming suture planes perpendicular to the capsule. A posterior view is shown in (A,C,E). An axial view is shown in (B,D,F).
(A,B) 2 months postnatal. (C,D) 2.5 months postnatal. (E,F) 3 months postnatal.
