Regrafts were the only indication with a significantly increasing trend (P,0.01). Since the introduction of lamellar keratoplasty (LK) techniques including deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), there was a significant increasing trend in number and percentage of both LK techniques (DALK; Daha fazlası Daha az
