OBJECTIVE To identify baseline (donor, recipient, and operative) factors that affect endothelial cell loss following penetrating keratoplasty for a moderate-risk condition (principally Fuchs dystrophy or pseudophakic or aphakic corneal edema). METHODS In a subset (n = 567) of Cornea Donor Study participants, preoperative and postoperative endothelial cell densities (ECDs) were determined by a central reading center. Multivariate regression analyses were performed to examine which baseline… CONTINUE READING
