PURPOSE To confirm the reproducibility of manual graft preparation using curvilinear forceps and evaluate the incidence and type of structural abnormalities of Descemet's membrane (DM) preventing successful grafts preparation. METHODS Five hundred corneo-scleral buttons were prepared. Factors such as endothelial cell number before preparation, donor age, post-mortem time, time in culture, pigmentation of the trabecular meshwork and preparation characteristics of the fellow eye were analysed… CONTINUE READING
