In a group of 17 patients, we studied the endothelial morphology and thickness of the central cornea yearly for five years after penetrating keratoplasty. The endothelial photographs were analyzed with a computerized digitizer to determine the area and shape of individual cells. The endothelial cell density decreased rapidly during the first two years postoperatively (59.4%), after which cell loss occurred at a considerably slower rate (3.5% of the preoperative cell count per year). During the… CONTINUE READING
