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...

Dry eyes after photorefractive keratoplasty

This study examined changes in tear break up time (TBUT), Schirmer test, tear osmolarity and dry eye questionnaire (OSDI) score from prior to photorefractive keratoplasty (PRK), to two months and four months postoperatively. Fifty eyes of 25 patients were examined....

The impact of collagen crosslinking on keratoplasty numbers in keratoconics

A question of corneal cross-linking (CXL) reducing keratoplasty numbers in keratoconics was addressed in this single centre observational study from the Oslo University Hospital – a sole provider of keratoplasties and CXL for a population of 2.8 million. Authors compared...

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...

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...

Endothelial keratoplasty (EK) with anterior chamber intraocular lens (ACIOL) versus secondary posterior chamber lens (PCIOL)

This is a retrospective study of 82 eyes (23 ACIOL, 59 PCIOL) with a history of either pseudophakic (PBK) or aphakic (ABK) bullous keratopathy, who had descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with retained or secondary ACIOL, or DSAEK with...

Silent keratitis in failed graft

This study examined rates of asymptomatic keratitis in failed full thickness corneal grafts, which were not picked up clinically preoperatively. During a five year period 53 penetrating keratoplasties (PK) were performed for long-standing graft decompensation with stromal opacity and /...

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...

Late stromal rejection in DALK

This case series reported on late stromal rejections in eyes after uncomplicated deep anterior lamellar keratoplasties (DALKs). Four eyes of three patients experienced episodes of isolated stromal rejection 33 to 46 months after surgically uncomplicated DALKs and a minimum of...

Penetrating keratoplasties in infants

This retrospective review looked at endothelial cell counts (ECC) following penetrating keratoplasties (PKP) performed in infants within the first year of their life. One hundred eyes of 71 patients had their first PKP during the study period (1998-2013). In 30%...

Corneal Transplantation

This relatively small book provides a thorough overview of the history of corneal transplantation, an update on the anatomy and physiology of the cornea with particular reference to the components essential to keratoplasty procedures, also graft preparation and storage. There...

Risk factors for DSEAK graft detachment

This was a retrospective data review on all patients who underwent primary descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSEAK) during a 10 year period: 1212 eyes were included in the analysis. Postoperative graft detachment occurred in 45 eyes (3.7%) and required...
