|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Keratoconus||Procedure: Lamellar transplant with lyophilized corneas||Phase 2|
- After the development of a techinique to lyophilize corneas, we randomly assingned 20 patients with keratoconus and visual acuity of < 20/60, who signed the consent term and divided them into 2 groups. One group was transplanted with lyophilized corneas and the other group with optisol corneas.
- Patients are being followed for 6 months with visual acuity, refraction, topography, orbscan, pachmetry, ultrasound biomicroscopy and confocal microscopy.
- Results are going to be statistically analysed by SPSS program.
