One hundred clear corneal grafts with a minimum follow-up of 10 years and average follow-up of 17.4 years were studied with specular microscopy. Central and peripheral graft endothelial cell counts as well as central corneal thickness measurements were done and these were correlated with the following parameters: diagnostic subgroups; donor age; graft age (follow-up time); and the postoperative clinical course. The average central endothelial cell counts for the entire series was 684 cells/mm2… CONTINUE READING
