Scanning Electron Microscopic Analysis of Biofilm Formation in Explanted Human Boston Type I Keratoprostheses.


PURPOSE To describe the morphological distribution of host tissue and microbial biofilms on the intraocular surfaces of Boston type I keratoprostheses (KPros) explanted because of corneal melt. METHODS Retrospective study of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images from 4 explanted Boston type I KPros composed of polymethylmethacrylate and titanium. SEM… (More)
