To investigate in vitro central and peripheral corneal endothelial cell (EC) migration from Quarter-Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (Quarter-DMEK) grafts.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Acta ophthalmologica
High intraocular pressure (IOP) is common in association with intracameral air and gas tamponade after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK); yet its influence on endothelial cell survival...
Corneal endothelial transplantation has become the gold standard for the treatment of corneal endothelial dysfunctions, replacing full thickness transplantation, known as penetrating keratoplasty. Cor...
To determine the cost-effectiveness of Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) compared to Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) in the United States (U.S.) SETTING: ...
This report describes the use of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty for the management of endothelial decompensation after multifocal intraocular lens implantation.
Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) has increased in popularity since its introduction over 10 years ago. This article presents a summary of the experiences of the past years collected...
To assess and compare the complications and results of different lamellar endothelial keratoplasty techniques and its variations.
To evaluate the transplantation of a posterior corneal disc for the management of corneal endothelial disorders in Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK) or Descemet Stripping ...
This blinded, randomized study compares the use of air and sulfur hexaflouride (SF6) tamponade in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty.
Reporting our anatomical and functional results and the possible complications of the first six Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) performed in our department secondary ...
To assess objective and subjective visual outcomes achieved by patients with corneal endothelial dysfunction who have undergone surgical treatment with Descemet stripping automated endothe...
Phenomenon of cell-mediated immunity measured by in vitro inhibition of the migration or phagocytosis of antigen-stimulated LEUKOCYTES or MACROPHAGES. Specific CELL MIGRATION ASSAYS have been developed to estimate levels of migration inhibitory factors, immune reactivity against tumor-associated antigens, and immunosuppressive effects of infectious microorganisms.
Disorder caused by loss of endothelium of the central cornea. It is characterized by hyaline endothelial outgrowths on Descemet's membrane, epithelial blisters, reduced vision, and pain.
A cell adhesion molecule, composed of a series of Ig-like domains, and expressed on virtually all MONOCYTES; PLATELETS; and GRANULOCYTES. PECAM-1 is highly expressed on endothelial cells and concentrated at the junctions between them. It is essential for TRANSENDOTHELIAL MIGRATION of leukocytes and removal of apoptotic cells by PHAGOCYTES.
A surgical procedure or KERATOPLASTY involving selective stripping and replacement of diseased host DESCEMET MEMBRANE and CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM with a suitable and healthy donor posterior lamella. The advantage to this procedure is that the normal corneal surface of the recipient is retained, thereby avoiding corneal surface incisions and sutures.
A secreted angiopoietin-like protein expressed under hypoxic conditions by ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. It inhibits cell proliferation, cell migration, and tubule formation; the inactive form accumulates in the endothelial EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX, reducing vascular leakage. ANGPTL4 has direct roles in regulating glucose and lipid metabolism, as well as INSULIN SENSITIVITY, and may also function as a regulator of angiogenesis and tumorigenesis.
