  • incision
  • Corneal transplant often results in a prolonged recovery time and post-operative astigmatism, yet DSAEK requires only a tiny incision and one suture. (torranceasc.com)
  • Once inserted into the anterior chamber, the elliptical distal tip protects the tissue from direct compression during passage through the incision. (corneas.org)
  • Protects tissue from direct compression during insertion through incision (5.2 mm). (corneas.org)
  • Compared to customary corneal transplant surgery this new method requires a smaller surgical incision, fewer stitches, heals quicker, and the vision returns faster. (bohnjosepheyemd.org)
  • With this method, the surgeon makes a tiny incision and places a thin disc of donor tissue on the back surface of the cornea. (wolfeeyeclinic.com)
  • anterior
  • Chu HS, Hsieh MC, Chen YM, Hou YC, Hu FR, Chen WL (2014) Anterior corneal buttons from DSAEK donor tissue can be stored in optisol GS for later use in tectonic lamellar patch grafting. (springer.com)
  • Devices that can perform corneal tomography (not to be confused with optical coherence tomography), such as the Pentacam (Oculus), are helpful for these patients because they use "slit imaging" to analyze both anterior as well as posterior corneal surfaces in near three-dimensions.

  • Contrast this with reflective Placido ring-based topography systems, which precisely measure anterior corneal elevation and surface. (reviewofoptometry.com)
  • No additional incisions, separate AC maintainer or special forceps are needed to pull the tissue into the anterior chamber. (corneas.org)
  • In advanced endothelial dysfunction, the initial results of cultivating endothelial cells on a type 1 collagen matrix or lamellar cornea and transplanting it like a sheet in DSAEK or injecting a suspension of endothelial cells into the anterior chamber with addition of ROCK drops to promote endothelial cell multiplication and adhesion to the Descemet's are interesting concepts that are already in clinical trial with impressive early results.

  • treat corneal
  • These advances in the field of regenerative medicine might soon help us treat corneal endothelial diseases using just topical drops or intracameral injections, deferring the need for extensive surgeries and prolonged recovery times with the added advantage of reduced risk of rejection.
