Organ culture, but not hypothermic storage, facilitates the repair of the corneal endothelium following mechanical damage.


PURPOSE To evaluate the reparative capacity of the mechanically injured endothelium of corneas stored under organ culture (OC) or hypothermic conditions. METHODS The central endothelium of 12 pairs of human corneas with similar endothelial parameters was damaged to create a 1 mm(2) lesion. One cornea from each pair was stored under OC and one under… (More)
