A Comparison of Lamellar and Penetrating Keratoplasty Outcomes: A Registry Study
The influence of Australian eye banking practices on corneal graft survival
(Australasian Medical Publishing Company, 2013-08-19)
Donor corneas transported interstate exhibited poorer survival after transplantation than those retrieved and grafted locally. Higher proportions of emergency procedures involving transported corneas did not account for ...
A comparison of endothelial and penetrating keratoplasty outcomes following failed penetrating keratoplasty: a registry study
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2016)
Purpose To compare graft survival and visual outcomes for endothelial keratoplasty (EK) after a first penetrating keratoplasty (PK), with outcomes of repeat PK after a first PK. Methods 400 eyes with a second graft (65 ...
The outcome of corneal transplantation in infants, children, and adolescents
OBJECTIVE: To examine factors affecting penetrating corneal graft survival and visual outcomes in patients aged less than 20 years. DESIGN: Large prospective, cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: Records of 14 865 followed ...
Expression of an anti-CD4 single-chain antibody fragment from the donor cornea can prolong corneal allograft survival in inbred rats
(BMJ Group, 2012-11-21)
To investigate whether expression of an anti-CD4 antibody fragment (scFv) by a lentivector-transduced donor cornea can prolong rat corneal allograft survival. Methods Inbred Fischer 344 rats received penetrating corneal ...
Repeat penetrating corneal transplantation in patients with keratoconus
To determine factors influencing penetrating corneal graft survival in patients receiving repeat grafts in the same eye after a failed first graft for keratoconus, a large cohort study was conducted from a national register ...
The inﬂuence of cervical and thoracic lymphadenectomy on corneal allograft rejection in inbred rats
(BMJ Group, 2011-11-23)
Aim To investigate the site of alloantigen presentation in the rat following orthotopic corneal transplantation. Methods Adult inbred Fischer 344 rats received penetrating corneal allografts from inbred Wistar Furth donors ...
Mutational analysis of MIR184 in sporadic keratoconus and myopia
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2013-08-05)
A mutation miR-184(+57C>T) in the seed region of miR-184 (encoded by MIR184 [MIM*613146]) results in familial severe keratoconus combined with early-onset anterior polar cataract and endothelial dystrophy, iris hypoplasia, ...
Corneal transplantation for keratoconus: a registry study.
(American Medical Association, 2011-06)
To determine factors influencing long-term graft survival and visual acuity in 4834 eyes of 4060 patients receiving their first penetrating corneal graft for keratoconus, a large cohort study was performed from a national ...
Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty versus penetrating keratoplasty for treating keratoconus
(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2014)
BACKGROUND: Keratoconus is an ectatic (weakening) disease of the cornea, which is the clear surface at the front of the eye. Approximately 10% to 15% of patients diagnosed with keratoconus require corneal transplantation. ...
