UNLABELLED Recent studies have shown that the human cornea reflects the metabolic status of the donor. Nevertheless, it has not yet been shown whether this leads to a different tolerance of organ culture and whether these changes are reversible or not. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-five organ-cultured human corneas were investigated. Endothelial cell density and the concentrations of glucose, lactate, ATP and ADP were determined in each cornea by enzymatic-optical methods. Obduction protocols… CONTINUE READING
