14] the femtosecond-assisted Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty
(DSEK) was not very favorable.
In some cases, raised IOP can lead to postoperative glaucoma and this is the greatest risk associated with a penetrating keratoplasty
procedure where up to 35% of cases can occur.
Current techniques [7,8,9] of Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty
(DALK) are of Two Types
was needed in many cases where corneal opacity hindered the vision but due to lack of keratoplasty
facilities in our hospital patients were referred to other hospitals where keratoplasty
facilities were available and hence most of them were lost to follow-up.
Anterior segment surgical advances including PDEK, Ultrathin DSAEK, Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty
(DMEK), Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty
(DSEK), and Trocar anterior chamber maintainer (T-ACM)
In his medical history, he reported being followed at another center for keratoconus and undergoing keratoplasty
7 years earlier in his left eye and 6 months earlier in his right eye.
Incremental cost- utility analysis of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty
compared with penetrating keratoplasty
for the treatment of keratoconus.
In the present study, we describe a novel surgical approach of combined Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty
and medium incision cataract surgery (MICS).
Long-term management includes: refractive correction of the astigmatism generated by a corneal scar, penetrating keratoplasty
when the scar compromises the visual axis directly or when there is corneal decompensation due to endothelial cell damage, and cataract surgery if required (4).
Major indications for corneal penetrating keratoplasty
at a reference service in Sao Paulo state (Sorocaba SP, Brazil).
Any condition that distorts the clarity of the cornea to a greater extent has to be treated by keratoplasty
Having performed eye surgeries in Hawaii for the past 15 years, he is the only doctor credentialed for the Crystalens surgery and the only doctor in the state to ever perform a Deep Lamellar Endothelial Keratoplasty
(DLEK) corneal transplant.
