Abstract

Two hundred thirty-two penetrating keratoplasties in 228 eyes were performed with or without the removal of donor corneal epithelium in a prospective, randomized clinical trial to determine the effect of epithelial removal on graft survival. The removal of epithelium did not reduce the likelihood of graft failure, irreversible allograft reaction, or reversible allograft reaction.
