Riassunto analitico
Corneal transplant is a challenging surgery still complicated by a relevant risk of failure.
The outcomes of the grafts differ considerably in relations of the indications and the different surgical techniques. The aim of this research project was to investigate indications, changing in clinical patterns, outcomes and complications of keratoplasty surgery. A long-term retrospective analysis was performed on all the keratoplasties procedures performed from 2001 to 2017 in a Spanish tertiary eye center.
