OBJECTIVE Although variations exist between species with respect to outcomes after cryopreservation, little is known about the differences in the susceptibility of the corneal stroma to cryoinjury. We performed this study to investigate freeze-thaw-induced damage in keratocytes and collagen in rabbit, pig, and human corneas. ANIMALS STUDIED Rabbit, pig, and human. PROCEDURES We prepared 250-microm-thick anterior stroma from rabbit, pig, and human corneas after scraping off the epithelium… CONTINUE READING
