We sought to develop corneal endothelial cell cultures with extended lifespan from corneas with Fuchs' dystrophy. Descemet's-endothelial cell explants from histology confirmed recipient corneas of two patients with Fuchs' dystrophy were cultured. After a small number of corneal endothelial cells with irregular, endothelial morphology migrated from the(More)
