The procedure of preparing the cornea for lamellar keratoplasty is performed by specially trained staff members using the automatic microkeratome
(Gebauer Slc Original, Neuhausen, Germany).
The thickness of posterior cornea grafts dissected by microkeratome
in DSAEK is not that predictable., While DMEK grafts preparation requires much more training and suffer a higher failure rate, McCauley et al . even reported a grafts reattachment rate up to 25% after DMEK surgery.
LASIK flap insertion position was superior and performed with Moria[TM] microkeratome
. The flap was 9 mm in diameter and 130 [micro]m thick.
Previous iterations of LASIK involved the use of a mechanical microkeratome
to create the protective flap, but this approach has largely been superseded due to improved visual outcomes through the use of femtosecond lasers.
Deep stromal dissection achieved manually, microkeratome
assisted or using femtosecond laser.
In recent years, however, femtosecond laser assisted LASIK has been reported to have a lower incidence of LINE and decreased severity than the conventional microkeratome
assisted LASIK .
Differences in the corneal biomechanical effects of surface ablation compared with laser in situ keratomileusis using a microkeratome
or femtosecond laser.
The LASIK procedure included mechanical flap preparation using Moria II microkeratome
(Moria, Antony, France) with an intended 110-um corneal flap.
Donor lenticules were prepared either manually in DSEK or by microkeratome
in Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK).
Its products include excimer workstation, femtosecond workstation, diagnostics and microkeratome
. Technolas offers various procedures such as Femto-Cataract, Supracor, Intracor, Customflap, Zyoptix Lasik and Customshape.
