For DMEK surgeries, recipient preparation and stripping of Descemet
membrane was performed as described previously for DSEK.
Dr Zaman said that they had carried out new transplant procedures including 'deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty', 'pre-descemet's deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty' and 'descemet
membrane endothelial keratoplasty'.
membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is the latest refinement of endothelial keratoplasty procedures.
The reason may be that the cornea still remained a part of the autologous corneal tissue after LK and was protected with the help of full thickness of the Descemet
membrane [17, 18].
He was given the option of Descemet
's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty for definitive management.
However, Hollingsworth (2003) suggested that sutures should be placed deeply in stroma down to Descemet
's membrane without perforating the cornea completely, as endothelium was exquisitely sensitive to trauma.
Neither were the Descemet
's layer or the endothelium layer of 15um24 included in the UBM measurements of CCT as the reflection from the interface of the stroma and Descemet
's layer, the endothelium layer, and endothelium layer aqueous humor could not be separated from one another.
Dua's layer adds to the five previously known layers of the cornea: the corneal epithelium at the very front, followed by Bowman's layer, the corneal stroma, Descemet
's membrane and the corneal endothelium at the very back.
The innovative technique, called descemet
membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), sees a single layer of cells the width of one tenth of a human hair transplanted onto the eye.
Movem-se lateral ou horizontalmente no estroma, contrariamente aos fungos de alta patogenicidade, que se movem em sentido vertical, em direcao Ya membrana de Descemet
(MATHES et al., 2010).
Dr Zaman said that they carried out new transplant procedures including 'deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty' (DALK), 'pre-descemet's deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty' and descemet
membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK).
It has been well established that Descemet
membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) produces better visual outcomes than other EK techniques.
