To further evaluate the feasibility of the full-thickness eye wall resection of the posterior segment, this operation was performed on a series of experimental animals. The resected eye wall was replaced with live and dead homo- and heterografts. The technique of the operation and clinico-histological examination of these eyes in the postoperative period is reported. The encouraging preliminary results obtained may open future avenues in ophthalmic surgery.
