Rabbit corneas were frozen and thawed by three methods and compared by full thickness transplantation as well as specular microscopy, histology, and transmission electron microscopy. Two of the methods used a recently described technique, in which the excised cornea was immersed in a potassium-rich buffered solution containing the cryoprotectant dimethyl sulphoxide (Me2SO, 2 mol/l). This solution was designed to restrict the loss of intracellular potassium and to prevent cell swelling at low… CONTINUE READING
