This study investigated the inflammatory effect of cryotherapy application on collagen matrix network in human infant sclera. Donor scleral tissues taken from three infant patients divided into five groups: control group, sham-treated group, and three cryotreated groups. In the cryotherapy groups, the sclera was treated for 5 s, 10 s, and 20 s with -80°C freezing by a cryosurgical system. The cryotreated reactions were examined using double histological analysis with hematoxylin-eosin and Masson's trichrome, and atomic force microscopy analysis to quantify the diameter and D-banding of collagen fibrils. The infant scleral tissues treated with cryotherapy showed a significantly increased collagen density associated with inflammatory response (p < 0.05), increased fibril diameter (p < 0.005) compared to the scleral tissues in the control group. The results directly suggest that the cryotherapy affects the morphology of scleral collagen. SCANNING 00: 1-6, 2012. © Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
