Transplantation of cultured rhesus monkey vascular endothelial cells to allogeneic cornea concomitant with stripping of Descemet's membrane


CONTEXT In cases of damaged corneal endothelium cells (CECs) of the eye, transplantation of cultured vascular endothelial cells (VECs) may be a viable method to restore transparency. AIMS To evaluate the viability of replacing damaged primate CECs with cultured allogeneic VECs. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Rhesus monkey VECs (RMVECs) were cultured and… (More)
