PURPOSE To report the endothelial cell loss and clinical outcomes in Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with internationally shipped, precut donor corneas. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of a noncomparative case series. METHODS The setting was a single hospital. The clinical results of 134 eyes of 128 patients who underwent(More)
PURPOSE To determine the cooling effect of generic insulated shipping containers in ambient and high-temperature environments.

We measured the cross-sectional area of four areas of the cerebellar vermis in 45 community-dwelling men aged(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effect of 1% versus 5% polyvinylpyrrolidone-iodine (PVP-I) chemical preparation (prep) of the eye on the recovery of organisms from donor globes before in situ recovery of donor corneal tissue. METHODS One hundred consecutive pairs of donor corneas (200 eyes) were randomized to receive either 1% or 5% PVP-I drops applied to the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of postkeratoplasty fungal infection when corneal tissue from donors with a recent medical history of oral thrush or respiratory, urine, wound, sputum, bronchial, tracheal, or throat culture positive for fungus is identified before recovery and after decontamination of the corneal tissue with 5% povidone-iodine flush to(More)
