Abstract: Aim. The aim of this study was to present different aspects of the outcome after corneal transplantation based on data from the Swedish Cornea Register. Papers. The first paper describes the register and gives descriptive statistics and analysis of data from a two-year follow up, while the last paper presents data from a ten-year follow up. Papers two and three deal with two specific problems in corneal transplantation, astigmatism and corneal oedema after cataract surgery (bullous keratop... more
