[Penetrating keratoplasty in active herpes simplex stromal keratitis].
Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2001; 37(2):118-20ZY

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To evaluate the efficacy of penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) in treating active herpes simplex stromal keratitis.

METHODS

PKP was performed on 59 patients with quiescent and 66 patients with active herpes simplex stromal keratitis. The results and complications of herpes simplex keratitis (HSK) in the quiescent group were compared with that of the HSK active group.

RESULTS

No clinical or statistical significant differences in visual outcome, graft transparent rate and recurrent rate of HSK after operation were identified between the active and quiescent groups.

CONCLUSION

When the pre- and intra-operative managements of PKP are properly performed on active HSK, the same results as that performed on quiescent HSK can be obtained, and it can reduce the complications and shorten the duration of the disease.
