1. Optimizing the Deswelling Process of Organ-Cultured Corneas

    Purpose: During deswelling of organ-cultured human corneas, endothelial cell loss occurs. Therefore, it is necessary to minimize the deswelling time and achieving an optimal central corneal thickness (CCT) of approximately 550 [mu]m at the same time. We investigated the minimal deswelling time necessary and analyzed endothelial cell loss. Methods: Fifty-eight human corneas were stored between 13 and 81 days in organ culture. CCT was measured by optical coherence tomography. Measurements were performed before preparation, during culturing, before deswelling, and after varying deswelling periods (1-72 hours) using 5% dextran. Additionally, vital staining was performed in 6 human corneas to assess ...
