abstract

  • Corneal keloids recur after SK and phototherapeutic keratectomy, indicating that keratoplasty procedures may be more effective than keratectomy procedures in their management. However, corneal keloids may recur even after a penetrating keratoplasty, in which case keratoprosthesis implantation represents a viable option for visual rehabilitation.
