The purpose of this study is to describe a simple but novel 60-second swelling technique for ultrathin Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) graft preparation. In addition, we aim to demonstrate the effectiveness of this technique in obtaining thinner DSAEK grafts more consistently without compromising graft quality.

To compare corneal higher-order aberrations (HOA) following ultrathin Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (UT-DSAEK) and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK).
The use of an ultrathin bronchoscope (UB) to diagnose peripheral pulmonary lesions is described. A virtual bronchoscopic navigation system was used to direct the ultrathin scope to the nodule. One of ...
An anterior palatal oronasal fistula in a bilateral cleft lip and palate is a challenging clinical dilemma. The purpose of this article is to present a 2-stage technique to repair the fistula in consi...
To examine the association of donor, recipient, and operative factors on graft dislocation after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) in the Cornea Preservation Time Study (CP...
Ultrathin 2D nanomaterials possess promising properties due to electron confinement within single or a few atom layers. As an emerging class of functional materials, ultrathin 2D rare-earth nanomateri...
To study the correlation between graft size in DSAEK (Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty) and UT (ultra thin)-DSAEK type corneal transplants to the visual acuity 6 month...
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical safety and efficacy of the EndoGlide as a donor insertion device in DSAEK surgery. The investigators hypotheses is that the Endoglid...
The purpose of this study is to compare the yield of two methods for obtaining a lung tissue sample: Procedure #1: standard fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FB) with fluoroscopy, and Procedure #2:...
A Randomised Multi-Center Comparison of an Ultrathin Strut Biodegradable Polymer Sirolimus-Eluting Stent With a Durable Polymer Everolimus-Eluting Stent for Patients With Acute ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Undergoing Primary Percutaneous Cor
PCI is considered as the reperfusion strategy of choice for patients with acute STEMI. Data from RCTs and meta-analyses demonstrate a consistent and strong signal towards a significant red...
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 ...
The technique of using a cryostat or freezing microtome, in which the temperature is regulated to -20 degrees Celsius, to cut ultrathin frozen sections for microscopic (usually, electron microscopic) examination.
The technique of using a microtome to cut thin or ultrathin sections of tissues embedded in a supporting substance. The microtome is an instrument that hold a steel, glass or diamond knife in clamps at an angle to the blocks of prepared tissues, which it cuts in sections of equal thickness.
Technique that utilizes low-stringency polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with single primers of arbitrary sequence to generate strain-specific arrays of anonymous DNA fragments. RAPD technique may be used to determine taxonomic identity, assess kinship relationships, analyze mixed genome samples, and create specific probes.
Nanometer range spherical cores of particular semiconductor compounds surrounded by an ultrathin metal shell that is commonly made of gold or silver. This configuration gives the nanoshells highly tunable optical properties. They have potential in biomedicine for diagnosis and therapy.
A congenital anomaly of the hand or foot, marked by the webbing between adjacent fingers or toes. Syndactylies are classified as complete or incomplete by the degree of joining. Syndactylies can also be simple or complex. Simple syndactyly indicates joining of only skin or soft tissue; complex syndactyly marks joining of bony elements.
