The role of Schlemm's canal in aqueous outflow from the human eye

M C Johnson, R D Kamm
1983 Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science  
A mathematical model of Schlemm's canal is developed to simulate collapse of the canal and its effect on resistance to flow through the aqueous outflow network.  ...  Based on comparisons between the model and results in the literature, the following tentative conclusions are reached: (1) Most of the resistance in the aqueous outflow network occurs in the inner wall  ...  Therefore, we conclude that most of the resistance in the aqueous outflow network occurs in the inner wall of Schlemm's canal.  ...
