Abstract
Preservation of donor tissue for human keratoplasty has been evaluated using modified M-K medium. The medium has been modified by changing the antibiotic and buffer and adding a pH indicator. These changes offered theoretical and practical advantages. There were no primary donor failures in 50 consecutive penetrating keratoplasties with an overall success rate of 92 percent. Clinical specular microscopy revealed good endothelial cell survival.
