Human corneal endothelial layer repair during organ culture.

Circular freeze-thaw endothelial wounds were created on paired human corneas. Ultrastructural and physiological studies were performed after organ culture (OC) incubation at 37 C from 1 to 21 days as well as on fresh noncultured controls. As early as 24 hours after injury, OC corneas demonstrated ultrastructurally intact endothelial cells at the margin of… CONTINUE READING
