The cornea is one of a few relatively immunologically privileged sites within the human body.1 Corneal transplant surgery is the most commonly performed allograft in the United Kingdom.2 In terms of solid tissue allografts in humans, the cornea appears to be very successful with an overall first year survival rate as high as 90%.3 Unfortunately, the long term reality is that the overall Cited by: Diagnosis of corneal graft rejection should be made only in grafts that have remained clear for at least 2 weeks following keratoplasty. By observing this guideline, graft rejection can be easily distinguished from other causes of graft failure that are more common in the early postoperative period (eg, primary donor failure).

May;20(4) Endothelial cell loss during graft rejection has been observed in both the mouse and human cornea (5, 9). It remains unknown what causes the endothelium to die, although death of corneal endothelial cells during graft rejection is believed to be apoptotic (10, 11). Because corneal endothelial cells in vivo are thought to regenerate poorly, if Cited by:
Study: DMEK graft rejection more likely to occur with discontinuation of topical steroids The rejection rate was high enough to warrant indefinite use of steroids after surgery. Ocular Surgery. In my experience, suprachoroidal hemorrhage results in loss of the EK graft due to allograft rejection and glaucoma. In closing, DSAEK is a great procedure that is actually easy to master. The excellent results and reproducibility of the procedure ensure that it will be a workhorse for the management of endothelial dysfunction for quite a while.

Topical tacrolimus had been shown to be effective in prevention of corneal allograft rejection in a murine corneal graft rejection model. Utility of these agents in toxicity-sparing protocols for organ transplant recipients had been proposed [ 29, 30 ].Cited by: "Ocular Disease: Mechanisms and Management is invaluable in its emphasis on discussions of the pathophysiology of ocular disease.
It provides an excellent and up-to-date overview of ophthalmic pathophysiology and bridges the gap between the basic science and the clinical practice of : Effective suppression of corneal inflammation provides some insurance against subsequent graft rejection.
Postoperative inflammation must be diagnosed promptly and treated energetically. Avoid high-risk corneal transplants if at all possible. A failed graft Cited by: 5.
Despite the relative immune privilege of the cornea as a transplant tissue (both the recipient corneal bed and the anterior chamber are immune-privileged sites) the most common cause of corneal graft failure in all reports is allogeneic rejection.
In first-time graft recipients with no vascularisation of the recipient's corneal bed, 2-year survival rates exceed 90%; this decreases to 35% to 70% in Cited by: 1.

Covers all areas of disease in ophthalmology including retina, cornea, cataract, glaucoma, and uveitis for the comprehensive information you need for managing clinical cases.
Presents a unique and pragmatic blend of necessary basic science and clinical application to serve as a clinical guide to understanding the cause and rational management of ocular disease. Although animal models of penetrating keratoplasty have been in use for almost a half-century, until recently, progress in understanding the immune mechanisms of corneal graft rejection has been slow.

Interestingly, collagen shields impregnated with cyclosporin A increase the corneal penetration of cyclosporine and can successfully reverse graft rejection in rabbits.
The mechanisms of corneal allograft rejection present at least two opportunities to alter the normal course of events and, thus, prolong corneal graft survival. One is to prevent antigen presentation to the naive T cell by the AP cell, and the other is to alter the Th1/Th2 dynamic, favoring a Th2 response rather than a Th1 by: 2.
consequences for the investigation of mechanisms of graft rejection. Firstly, the corneal grafts on which pathological studies have been reported represent late or burnt out rejection.
Secondly, most information on the sequence of events in rejecting corneas has been obtained from experi-mental animal models. Thus, while corneal graft rejectionCited by: Reported incidence of corneal graft rejection varies from % to 68%.
About, 12% of graft rejection cases in patients with good prognostic keratoplasty and 40% in complicated cases have been reported to lead to subsequent graft failure. The study by Alldrege and Krachmer in reveals that corneal graft rejection occurs in up to 50% Cited by: Although animal models of penetrating keratoplasty have been in use for almost a half-century, until recently, progress in understanding the immune mechanisms of corneal graft rejection has been slow.
However, the widespread use of rodent models of orthotopic corneal transplantation has shed new light on the pathogenesis of corneal graft rejection. Management of corneal graft rejection consists of early detection and aggressive therapy with corticosteroids. Corticosteroid therapy, both topical and systemic, is the mainstay of management.

In this review we discuss the molecular and cellular perpetrators of immune-mediated graft rejection with emphasis on the roles of corneal dendritic cells (DCs) and the human leukocyte antigens; risk factors than can threaten corneal immune privilege, inducing immune-mediated graft rejection; rejection rates associated with full-thickness and lamellar keratoplasties; and both current and evolving therapeutics in the prophylaxis and management of corneal graft rejection.
CORNEAL ALLOGRAFT REJECTION IMMUNE MECHANISM Antigen processing can occur at cornea, ocular environs and draining lymph nodes Recipient T cells recognition of donor MHC alloantigens plays central role in rejection by 2 mechanisms Direct pathway: donor APCs are recognized directly by recipient T cells (important role in acute graft rejection.
Topical 1% prednisolone acetate is the primary treatment for acute graft rejection and as post operative prophylactic therapy for high risk transplant recipients. For epithelial and subepithelial rejections, which have a higher rate of reversibility, topical corticosteroids can be used six times per day, with a tapered dosing over weeks .
Corneal graft rejection is the most common cause of graft failure in the late postoperative period. The reported incidence of graft rejection is lower in endothelial keratoplasty. Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) has been reported to have a rejection rate as low as % at one year in one series, but other studies have reported.
Maumenee was the first to report on the mechanism of corneal graft rejection in the s.3 In that work, the mechanism of antigen-antibody reactions was described, as well as immediate and late hypersensitivity responses in an avascular corneal graft.4,5 Follow-up investigative studies analyzed immune reactions following by: 5.
