Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty

Des·ce·met strip·ping en·do·the·li·al ker·a·to·plas·ty

(DSEK) (des-ĕ-mā' strip'ing en'dō-thē'lē-ăl ker'ă-tō-plas-tē)
Surgical procedure used in the management of corneal endothelial disease; the host endothelium and Descemet membrane (plastic elastic lamina of cornea) are removed and replaced with a cadaveric donor transplant of endothelium and Descemet membrane.
