To evaluate the outcomes of repeat corneal transplantation, either penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) or Descemet’s stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), for penetrating keratoplasty grafts which failed due to corneal edema. The charts of 24 eyes with failed PKP grafts, due to corneal edema, which underwent a repeat corneal transplant (PKP in 17… CONTINUE READING
