PURPOSE To compare outcomes after penetrating keratoplasty (PK) and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) for keratoconus in the United Kingdom. METHODS Patient outcome data were collected at the time of transplantation and at 1, 2, and 5 years after surgery. Data were analyzed by Kaplan-Meier survival curves, Cox regression, and binary logistic regression to determine the influence of surgical procedure on graft survival and visual outcome. RESULTS The risk of graft failure for DALK… CONTINUE READING
