Abstract Autotransplantation of 250,000 tissue cultured fibroblasts from rabbit rump skin into the vitreous cavity results in intravitreal strand formation and traction retinal detachment (27 of 47 eyes, 57\%). A single intravitreal injection of 1 mg of dexamethasone alcohol inhibits fibroblast growth as judged by the significantly reduced number of retinal detachments (11 of 46 eyes, 24\%).
