@ 9:00 am - 13:00 pm GMT Join this distinguished meeting, now in its' 6th year, online for 2021. Chaired by Mr. Sai Kolli who is joined by a number of excellent speakers for an interesting morning of talks focussed on the cornea.

Lamellar patch grafts utilising cornea remnants from DMEK/PKP

The authors retrospectively reviewed 23 lamellar patch grafts performed over a six-year period for tectonic indications in corneal thinning and perforations. The anterior stroma of corneal endothelium peeled for descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) were used to prepare circular lamellar...

Maintenance therapy for CMV endotheliitis

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) has been associated with corneal endotheliitis, leading to endothelial cell loss and corneal decompensation. CMV corneal endotheliitis recurrence can affect between 5-60% of eyes after cessation of anti-CMV therapy. Each recurrence of endotheliitis has a detrimental effect on...

Mini DMEK for acute hydrops

This is a retrospective analysis of three patients who underwent mini DMEK for massive corneal hydrops in acute keratoconus. DMEK graft was trephined or trimmed according to the size and the shape of the gap in the patient’s Descemet membrane...

Effect of rebubbling after DMEK

This study objectively evaluated the impact of rebubbling on postoperative corneal clarity and endothelial cell loss (ELD) after DMEK. This was a retrospective analysis of 132 consecutive DMEK cases performed for Fuchs endothelial dystrophy or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy. Patients were...

Topical insulin for neurotrophic ulcers

This retrospective case series described the use of topical insulin drops as an aid in treatment of refractory neurotrophic corneal ulceration in six patients. Insulin drops were prepared under sterile conditions from standard insulin preparations mixed with artificial tears containing...

LASEK with mitomycin C to correct myopia in thin corneas

This study evaluated the long-term outcomes of laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) with intraoperative use of mitomycin C (MMC) performed on thin corneas for the correction of myopia. MMC modulates the corneal wound healing response in surface healing, thus reducing the...

Keratoconus cone variants

This retrospective study examined correlation between three keratoconic parameters to further understand anatomy of keratoconic cones. Kmax and pachymetry of the thinnest point were obtained from the Pentacam scans. Decentration was calculated as distance from the corneal vertex to the...

Scheimpflug imaging in paediatric glaucoma

The authors undertook this study to report the corneal tomographic characteristics of eyes that had surgery for controlled primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) compared to a control group. The study included 44 eyes of 27 children (18 males) having surgery for...

γδ T cell depletion does not affect fungal keratitis

Fungal keratitis (FK) is a blinding condition prevalent in agricultural areas of countries such as India and China. The fungus enters the cornea and induces an inflammatory response which leads to tissue damage. Neutrophils are the earliest infiltrating immune cells...
