DMEK

Our DMEK injection system is the most popular and widely used product on the market today. It provides touch-free and gentle handling of the Descemet Lamella in an easy-to-use glass cartridge and tubing set. In addition to this, we also...

Quarter DMEK

This case report describes a novel technique where one quarter of Descemet’s membrane (DM) was transplanted during a quarter-descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) procedure. DMEK graft was prepared from a 58-year-old corneo-scleral donor after one week in culture. Peripheral DM...

Comparing femtosecond laser assisted-DMEK to manual DMEK

Femtosecond laser is as a novel tool for performing precise descemetorhexis in descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) surgery. In DMEK surgery, the recipient’s Descemet membrane is peeled to allow adherence of the donor DMEK tissue to the recipient’s stroma. Complete...

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...

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...

DMEK versus DSAEK

This systematic review and meta-analysis reviewed published evidence comparing two endothelial corneal transplants techniques; Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) and Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSEAK). DMEK involves transplanting Descemet membrane with endothelial cells without any overlying stroma. In DSAEK...

Outcomes of hemi DMEK

This was a prospective, interventional case series of 10 eyes from 10 patients who underwent hemi-descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (hemi-DMEK) for Fuchs endothelial dystrophy. The surgical technique for hemi DMEK procedure was similar to the circular DMEK except that a...

Air or SF6 in DMEK

This retrospective study compared descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) outcomes in 136 consecutive eyes of 68 patients. All patients underwent DMEK for Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy, where consecutive eyes received 100% air bubble during first eye surgery and 20% sulphur hexafluoride...

Fellow eye comparison of DMEK and PKP

This retrospective analysis of 11 patients who underwent penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) in their first eye followed by descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in their second eye studied visual and refractive outcomes. Intra and postoperative complications were compared and a subjective...

Femto-DMEK – a solution for high re-bubbling rates?

This retrospective study examined results of patients that underwent femtosecond laser enabled descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) (FE-DMEK) and manual DMEK (M-DMEK) for Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy. In FE-DMEK femtosecond laser was used to create 8.25mm descemetorhexis, whereas during M-DMEK- descemetorhexis...

Is DSAEK or DMEK better for failed penetrating keratoplasty (PKP)?

This retrospective study involved 52 patients with failed penetrating keratoplasty. Twenty-eight eyes underwent Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) and 24 eyes underwent Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). Data collection included demographic characteristics, number of previous corneal transplants, previous glaucoma...

Risks factors for graft preparation failure in DMEK

Diabetes mellitus (DM) makes it more difficult to prepare descemet membrane epithelial keratoplasty (DMEK) grafts due to the ‘stickiness’ of Descemet’s membrane. This retrospective study examined a classification system, where donors were scored points according to their DM related risk...
