Abstract
Background: Penetrating keratoplasty (PK) is a surgical procedure where a diseased cornea is replaced by donated corneal tissue which has been removed from a recently deceased individual having no known diseases.

Objectives: The objectives of the study were to assess the indications and demographic profile of patients undergoing PK.

Materials and Methods: In this retrospective cross-sectional non-interventional hospital-based clinical analysis study, hospital records of patients who had undergone for PK surgery at PBM Eye Hospital, S.P. Medical College, Bikaner, Rajasthan, from 1991 to 2020 were reviewed for demographic data (age, sex, age at presentation, etc.), indications for PK, treatment history and comorbid conditions. A total of 387 patients were included in this study.

Results: The most common age group for PK was 6170 years (22.23%) followed by 5160 years (21.05%) and 4150 years (15.48%). About 65.96% patients were male, 30.87% patients were female, and 3.17% patients were children (<14 year). In the literature, Aphakic bullous keratopathy and pseudophakic bullous keratopathy are usually considered to be the most common indications for PK but in our study corneal opacity is the most common indication (67.10%), followed by Pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (13.20%). PK was done for optical purpose in 94.50% and therapeutic in 5.5% cases.

Conclusion: Corneal opacity is the most common indication and 6170 year is the most common age group for PK in northwest Rajasthan.

Key words: Penetrating Keratoplasty; Corneal Opacity; Pseudophakic Bullous Keratopathy
