Presentation Description : Retinal hemorrhage is an important sign of abusive head trauma in infants, but the underlying biomechanical mechanisms and forces that result in retinal hemorrhage are unknown. In this talk, I will present computational, animal, and experimental data from my own lab and others that highlight the limited state of knowledge regarding the biomechanics of retinal hemorrhage. Throughout the presentation, I will identify critical areas of research needed to elucidate mechanisms of retinal hemorrhage, and to assist in the differential diagnosis of abusive head trauma.

This abstract was presented at the 2019 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Vancouver, Canada, April 28 - May 2, 2019.
