PURPOSE To evaluate whether the organ culture method for human cornea preservation may be applied to corneas stored for several days at 4 degrees C. METHODS The cell density, viability, and morphology of corneal endothelium were examined in 140 human corneas stored at 4 degrees C for the minimal time required for transport to the bank and for the preliminary controls of cornea status (1.6 +/- 1.1 days) and in 46 corneas preserved at 4 degrees C for 6.1 +/- 1.9 days in Optisol-GS.
