Dohlman Thomas_Dohlman@meei.harvard.edu Reza Dana Reza_Dana@meei.harvard.edu <p>Several murine models of corneal transplantation have been developed over the years to study the immunopathological processes that lead to the failure of grafted corneas. In all of them, the classic eight interrupted sutures technique is utilized for transplanting the donor cornea on the host bed. However, in clinical practice, a single continuous suture with a single knot is generally performed for corneal transplantation. Here, we describe the adaptation of the single continuous suture technique in a mouse model of corneal transplantation.</p> 2021-10-22T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Hayate Nakagawa, Tomas Blanco, Francesca Kahale, Rohan Bir Singh, Thomas H.
