Pre-banking microbial contamination of donor conjunctiva and storage medium for penetrating keratoplasty

Abstract

The aims of this study were to investigate the incidence of positive donor tissue cultures before transfer to preservation medium (Optisol™-GS) for penetrating keratoplasty, to verify the efficacy of antibiotics contained in Optisol™-GS by examining the drug susceptibility and to assess the relationship between the results of our microbial assessments as… (More)
