Töteberg-Harms, H; Bredehorn-Mayr, T (2009). Preparation and Use of Human Sclera Grafts in Ophthalmic Surgery. In: Bredehorn-Mayr, T; Duncker, G I W; Armitage, W J. Eye Banking : Developments in Ophthalmology. Basel: Karger, 105-108.

Abstract

Corneal transplantation has been performed with increasing success for more than 100 years. In the last 20 years, standards, outcomes and developments in the field of corneal transplantation and eye banking have been discussed at the annual meetings of the European Eye Bank Association (EEBA) to share and promote good practice and guarantee a high level of safety for the recipients. The EEBA standards for donor selection and eye banking provide professional advice and guidance to eye banks and corneal surgeons.
This book highlights the history and development of eye banking and all significant steps including the donation, processing and distribution of corneas for transplantation. Additional contributions on the sclera, amnion and retinal pigment epithelium provide further insights into ocular surgery and the future potential for transplantation.
This book contributes the essentials in eye banking activities for ophthalmologists and eye bankers as well as for regulatory and legislative authorities.
