Deswelling of the graft cornea following hypoxic oedema

Vannas, Antti, Holden, Brien A., Sweeney, Deborah F., Efron, Nathan, & Polse, Kenneth A. (1984) Deswelling of the graft cornea following hypoxic oedema. Acta Ophthalmologica, 62(6), pp. 879-884.


Both corneas of 12 unilateral graft patients were subjected to 9% hypoxic oedema. Following removal of the hypoxic stimulus, the grafted corneas deswelled at a significantly slower rate (P less than 0.01) than the fellow unoperated corneas. We suggest that this can be attributed to a change in the barrier properties and/or pump efficiency of the endothelium. Monitoring corneal deswelling following hypoxic oedema could form the basis of a clinical test of corneal endothelial function.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
