Donor Endothelial Cell Count Does Not Correlate With Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty Transplant Survival After 2 Years of Follow-up.

Abstract

PURPOSE To analyze the influence of low endothelial cell density (ECD) of donor cornea tissue, donor age, and sex on the transplant survival rate after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). METHODS Graft ECD, age, and sex of donors used for DSAEK (n = 1789) during 7 years (2007-2014) in 4 Scandinavian hospitals were assessed for… (More)
