Sažetak

The main purpose of the study was to describe the surgical success rate and visual
results of penetrating keratoplasty in children. This retrospective study included children
that underwent corneal transplantation at the Department of Ophthalmology, General
Hospital »Sveti Duh«, in the period 1994–1999. Patients’ age ranged from 6 to 16
years. Twenty-five corneal transplants were performed in 24 eyes. Corneal pathologies
were corneal leucoma, congenital dystrophy, corneal combustion, corneal scar after perforating
injury, keratoconus, corneal melting, hematocornea and rekeratoplasty. The
follow-up period was at least 6 months. The rate of graft survival was 1 year in 75% of
eyes with congenital dystrophy and keratoconus. Hematocornea and rekeratoplasty
ended with graft failure. Postoperative visual acuity improvement was recorded in 14
out of 25 eyes. Penetrating keratoplasty in children showed very good surgical success.
The final visual outcome was affected by irreversible amblyopia.
