The Swedish Registry for Corneal Transplant is one three registries in the world that registers the results of corneal transplantations. Corneal diseases are a major cause of blindness worldwide, and for many people a corneal graft is the only way to restore their vision.
The objective of this registry is to collect and analyse data on factors affecting the results after transplants. Based on these analyses, selection criteria, surgical techniques and postoperative treatments can be modified to continually improve results. The initial status, including risk factors, is recorded at the time of surgery. At a follow-up two years after the surgery, data is registered describing the outcome, complications, etc.
