Corneal specialists warn of the dangers of systemic immunosuppression

Quote:
ATHENS ? Systemic immunosuppression following corneal transplantation should be administered under strict medical surveillance, according to several corneal specialists speaking here.

"It cannot be just in the hands of ophthalmologists, but needs the cooperation of different specialists," Jos? G?ell, MD, said at Cornea Day during the ESCRS Winter Refractive Surgery Meeting. "The lungs, liver and kidneys should be screened preoperatively but also checked periodically after surgery."


Quote:
Previously, Dr. Papadopoulos said he experienced the extreme side effects of systemic immunosuppressive drugs in three patients. One patient died of lung aspergillosis caused by systemic steroids, another developed septic arthritis of the hip joint following systemic cyclosporine treatment, and the third patient contracted a severe lung virus induced by systemic steroids.
