Over a 10-month-period, 59 corneas were organ-cultured at + 31 degrees C and 7 were preserved at + 4 degrees C. Among the 59 organ-cultured corneas, 41% (24) were grafted and 25% (15) developed an infection during preservation. At the time of surgery, preservation medium and scleral rim were tested for microbiology. Infection during preservation was… CONTINUE READING
