Under normal conditions the retinal pigment epithelium does not permit passage of peroxidase tracers. Photocoagulation disrupts this barrier. Rhesus monkeys which received transconjunctival cryotheropy showed a similar disruption, with leakage of horseradish peroxidase into the retina. This leakage persisted for the 6-month duration of the experiment. One month after treatment, a firm chorioretinal adhesion was present, characterized by gliosis, adherent junctions, and cellular interdigitation. The anatomic features of the cryogenic chorioretinal adhesion were similar to those previously described in human eyes.
