Title "Nettleship collaterals", a result of calcific embolization of the central retinal artery
Subject Occlusive Vascular Disease; Calcific Retinal Emboli
Description Result of calcific embolization of the central retinal artery. The embolus itself can not be seen within the tissue of the optic disc. Numerous chorio-retino collaterals are filling the branches of a central retinal artery. Such an eye is always blind. These collaterals indicate that the patient probably has calcific aortic stenosis. ""Nettleship collaterals"" are named for a British ophthalmologist who first described them in 1908.
