The time interval between cataract surgery and Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty
(DSEK) is a critical factor in determining long term success and a minimum 36 month waiting period after cataract is essential for optimal outcomes.
The corneas can be prepared for lamellar keratoplasty
after storage in both types of media.

It's worth mentioning that Dr Zaman Shah also carried out a new transplant procedure DALK (Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty
), DALK and pd _DALK are for keratoconus and DMEK procedure for decompensated cornea, in this surgical technique the chances of graft rejection are minimal and cornea works for lifetime.
Patients with or without penetrating keratoplasty
were included in the study for whom phacoemulsification surgery was performed due to cataract and prophylactic intracameral cefuroxime solution (Aprokam ([R])) was administered.

Even more detrimental is that PKP has a much poorer prognosis for survival than initial keratoplasty

Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty
(DMEK) is a valuable method of corneal transplantation that corrects corneal endothelial dysfunction [1, 2].
