Since the decaying cells cannot regenerate, the cells enlarge to take their place and lead to change in structure of corneal endothelium
(2009), assessing the corneal endothelium
of pigs, established by SEM that most of the cells were hexagonal (61.7 [+ or -] 8.5% for the central area and 53.2 [+ or -] 7.0% for the peripheral area), with the presence of pentagonal cells (21.3 [+ or -] 5.8% and 28.9 [+ or -] 5.1% for the center and the periphery, respectively) and heptagonal cells (11.0 [+ or -] 6.4% for the center and 18.1 [+ or -] 4.8% for the periphery).

In our previous study we reported about early changes of the corneal endothelium

Scanning electron microscopic studies of the corneal endothelium
in man and monkeys.
In great horned owl and little owl this musculature is a few represented: absent in the peripheral third of iris (near the ciliary body), it is detectable as slender bundles between the layer of cross smooth muscle cells and the corneal endothelium
It also covers the corneal endothelium
. In summary, Na-HA helps in ophthalmic microsurgery by maintaining anterior chamber depth, temponading small breaks in posterior capsule, facilitates intra ocular lense (IOL) insertion, protects corneal endothelium
from damage by instruments and minimizes endothelial cell loss during anterior segment surgery.
Lamellar corneal transplantation surgery allows for selective replacement of the diseased corneal endothelium
OSI distributes the EndoSerter and EndoSaver corneal endothelium
delivery devices used to place corneal endothelial allografts into the eye during specialized transplant procedures.

The skills of manipulating the nucleus away from the posterior capsule, iris, and the corneal endothelium
are probably related to surgeon experience.
