Abstract

Purpose: Identify endothelial loss and pachymetric changes in patients operated penetrating keratoplasty at follow up 3 years

Methods: Pre surgical endothelial count was obtained by the reports of the LionsEye Bank Institute in Tampa, Florida. A non contact specular microscopy with a microscope Topcon SP-2000P in the operated was made in the operated eye. Specular microscopy was taken only with the image captured by auto focus.E Endothelial cel density was calculated by identify at minimum of 30 cels . Specular microscope automatically calculates and displays the results. We also performed and compare it with ultrasonic pachymetry Accutome Accupach V in the last visit.

Results: We analize 20 eyes.with 3 years of follow-up. Endothelial loss is greater than 50% of initial basal count representing a p> 0002. We observe the values of pre-surgical pachymetric compared against the post surgical have a grat difference

Conclusions: Endothelial loss of patients undergoing penetrating keratoplasty with follow at three years is more than 50%. The thickness pachymetric also shows significant variation
