BACKGROUND To investigate the outcome and prognostic factors for corneal graft recovery after severe corneal graft rejection following penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) treated with topical and systemic steroids. METHODS Fifty-eight eyes in 58 patients with severe corneal graft rejection following PKP were treated with topical and systemic steroids. Factors(More)
PURPOSE The authors evaluated the changes in donor endothelial cell density (ECD) caused by the precutting and long-distance transportation of corneal grafts for Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) from overseas eye banks. METHODS A total of 124 consecutive precut donor tissues for DSAEK were obtained from overseas eye banks. The(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of systemic tacrolimus for the treatment of eyes that developed graft failure despite treatment with cyclosporine (CsA). METHODS Ten eyes of 10 patients who underwent high-risk penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) and developed graft failure despite treatment with systemic CsA were(More)
