Paper Abstract

We have determined the threshold radiant exposure for cell death in the endothelium of porcine cornea exposed to ultrashort laser pulses in the context of keratoplasty and the preparation of endothelial grafts. In this study, by progressively increasing the radiant threshold towards the higher values we have observed a decrease of living corneal endothelial cells. Further study will address the effect of dose and possible mechanism behind cell death.
