Descemetorhexis without endothelial keratoplasty

This retrospective study examined outcomes of the largest reported series of eyes, which underwent Descemetorhexis without endothelial keratoplasty (DWEK) for Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy with mean 10 months of follow-up. Seventeen eyes were included in analysis; with 82.4% achieving corneal clearance...

Tacrolimus for endothelial rejection

This double-blinded randomised controlled trial tested the use of adjuvant topical Tacrolimus drops in cases of acute endothelial rejection in penetrating keratoplasty (PK). Patients with typical signs of endothelial rejection were randomised to receive either steroid therapy with topical Tacrolimus...

Cell injection therapy for endothelial failure

This is a prospective observational study involving 11 eyes of 11 patients with pseudophakic endothelial failure who underwent human corneal endothelial cell culture (hCEC) injection therapy for endothelial failure. This study aimed to evaluate the long-term five-year postoperative data for...

Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty: surgical management of congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy

This retrospective case series reports the long-term outcomes of Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) with suture assisted donor lenticular assisted donor lenticule insertion in paediatric patients with congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy (CHED). Thirty eyes of 16 patients were reviewed and...

Irido-corneal endothelial syndrome: an overview

Irido-corneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome is a rare group of eye related disorders that constitute three different clinical entities: Chandler syndrome (CS), essential / progressive iris atrophy and iris naevus / Cogan-Reese syndrome. ICE syndrome is sporadic in its presentation as...

Phakic iris clip lenses and endothelial cell loss

This retrospective observational study included long-term results on endothelial cell losses in highly myopic eyes, which underwent phakic iris-clip lens implantations. Included in the analysis were 113 eyes with mean preoperative spherical equivalent (SEQ) of -14.67 +/- 5.15 Diopters (D)....

Changes in corneal endothelial layer after strabismus surgery

The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in the corneal endothelial layer by specular microscopy after surgery in patients with horizontal and oblique strabismus. Eighty-three eyes of 56 patients were evaluated prospectively. There were three subgroups: one...

Effect of trabeculectomy on corneal endothelial cell loss

This is a prospective study of 117 eyes for two years after trabeculectomy, to investigate the corneal endothelial cell density (CECD) by specular microscopy prior to and after surgery on a six monthly basis. At six, 12, 18 and 24...

Endothelial cell loss using different graft injectors in DMEK

This study aimed to investigate endothelial cell loss between two injector systems in descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) grafts; a glass injector – modified Jones tube and a plastic injector – closed system IOL injector, the Viscoject 2.2 system. DMEK...

Ripasudil after Descemet stripping in Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy

This study prospectively evaluated the use of ripasudil, a rho kinase inhibitor, in patients undergoing Descemet’s stripping only (DSO) without an endothelial graft for Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy (FED). Patients with dense central guttae limited to the central 5mm of the...

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...

MicroRNA inhibits corneal neovascularisation

MicroRNAs (miR) are small non-coding RNA that target mRNA for destruction. MiR target about 30% of the protein coding genes and fine tune their expression. MiR have been shown to be involved in several cellular processes including cell cycle, tissue...
