PURPOSE Angiogenesis in corneal diseases can necessitate corneal transplantation and induce graft rejection. The aim of this study was to find out the histopathologic prevalence of angiogenesis in human corneas removed during keratoplasty, to establish the histopathologic diagnoses most commonly associated with angiogenesis, and to evaluate the anatomic location of new corneal vessels. METHODS Corneal buttons (2,557) after keratoplasty were sent to and analyzed in our ophthalmopathology… CONTINUE READING
