Abstract. Purpose:To measure the velocity of blood flow in orbital arteries after systemic kalligenogenase in rabbits. Material and Method:Fifteen female rabbits received a single shot of kalligenogenase. Velocity of blood flow in central retinal artery(CRA)and short posterior ciliary artery(SPCA)was measured by ultrasonic pulsed doppler method. Results:Intraocular pressure decreased significantly 3, 5 and 24 hours after administration. Mean blood flow velocity in CRA increased 2 and 3 hours, and that in SPCA increased 2, 3 and 5 hours after administration. Resistance index in CRA decreased 3 hours and that in SPCA decreased 2 and 3 hours after administration. Conclusion:Systemic kalligenogenase induces increase in blood flow volume in CRA and SPCA, and, possibly, in chorioretinal circulation in rabbits.
