Two different suturing techniques performed during keratoplasty were retrospectively evaluated to compare postkeratoplasty astigmatism, number of suture manipulations, and time to optical stability. One group of patients (n = 31) received a combination of continuous 11.0 nylon suture and 12 or 16 interrupted 10.0 nylon sutures (CCIS), which were selectively removed post-operatively to reduce astigmatism. The second group of patients (n = 26) received a single continuous 10.0 nylon suture (SCS… CONTINUE READING
