To describe a technique that ensures the production of a type 1 bubble when preparing pre-Descemet endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK) grafts with a high rate of predictability.
This article was published in the following journal.
To compare the long-term graft survival outcomes and complications of patients who underwent Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK), Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (D...
Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is an evolving option for failed penetrating keratoplasty (PK) as it has shown promising results compared to repeat PK.
A double anterior chamber may be observed after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and the management may be difficult especially in cases with a total descemet membrane detachment (DMD). Case...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the treatment of secondary graft failure in penetrating keratoplasty (PK) by performing Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) without host descemetor...
During the last few years, Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) has become first line surgical treatment for patients with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy....
To assess and compare the complications and results of different lamellar endothelial keratoplasty techniques and its variations.
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 evaluate the transplantation of a posterior corneal disc for the management of corneal endothelial disorders in Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK) or Descemet Stripping ...
Different techniques of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) have been introduced to create a uniform recipient bed, thereby reducing complications, such as interface irregularity an...
This blinded, randomized study compares the use of air and sulfur hexaflouride (SF6) tamponade in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty.
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.
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 non-fibrillar collagen originally found in DESCEMET MEMBRANE. It is expressed in endothelial cell layers and in tissues undergoing active remodeling. It is heterotrimer comprised of alpha1(VIII) and alpha2(VIII) chains.
A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)
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.
