Abstract

Purpose To describe the outcomes and prognostic characteristics of patients who had a repeat Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis (KPro) implantation. Design Retrospective case series. Methods setting: Data regarding preoperative clinical and demographic characteristics and postoperative course during initial and repeat KPro placement were collected at multiple centers across the country. patients: Forty-eight eyes underwent explantation of KPro owing to complications between September 2003 and August 2014 at 5 participating tertiary eye care centers in the United States. Of those, 36 eyes that received a subsequent replacement device were included. main outcome measures: Visual acuity (VA) outcomes and postoperative complications. Results Ocular surface disease was significantly more common in eyes that required a device explantation, compared to those that retained the device (P
