German to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general) / ophthalmology
Explanation: I'm not a medical specialist by any means, but I do love to research topics when I have time. There were not Google hits for your term, and I really don't know what Füßchen are here - could it be blood vessels?
anterior chamber angle http://www.proz.com/?sp=h&id=136946
angulus iridis, angulus iridocornealis, [TA] iridocorneal angle: a narrow recess between the sclerocorneal junction and the attached margin of the iris, marking the periphery of the anterior chamber of the eye; it is the principal exit site for the aqueous fluid. Called also filtration angle, iridial angle, and angle of iris. http://www.mercksource.com/pp/us/cns/cns_hl_dorlands.jspzQzp...
Anterior Chamber Angle/Trabecular Meshwork
The anterior chamber angle and the trabecular meshwork are located where the cornea meets the iris. The trabecular meshwork is important because it is the site where the aqueous humor drains out of the eye. If the aqueous humor cannot properly drain out of the eye, the pressure can build up inside the eye, causing optic nerve damage and eventually vision loss, a condition known as glaucoma. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/articles/42075-9.asp
1 Rubeotic glaucoma occurs where a thrombosis of the central retinal vein or diabetic retinopathy cause the formation of new blood vessels in the iris or angle of the anterior chamber making the iris look reddish (rubeosis) and blocking the angle thus raising the IOP. http://www.dotpharmacy.co.uk/upglauc.html
Differentiation of neovascularization from rubeosis
1. Neo arises from the pupillary border
2. Thin vessels - Run along the surface of the iris
Circular ciliary body vessels are thicker
and originate from the CBB area http://www.nova.edu/hpd/otm/otm-c/GONIO_C.HTM
