During development of the DSAEK method, there was a change in the definition of the method subtypes depending on the thickness of the lamella.
By avoiding new disruptions of the corneal architecture and previous surgical scars, DSAEK represents a less-invasive procedure in comparison to repeat PKP [68].
Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) has undergone rapid development in the last 10 years.
Furthermore, in literature there are four more cases described of Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) due to bullous keratopathy after anterior-posterior radial keratotomy (APRK) as an effective surgical option [12].
Further chapters cover the history of lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty, deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty (DLEK), Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), comparisons of the older form of sutureless transplantation to DSAEK, and future directions, including Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK).
To report a patient with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy (FED) who underwent Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) on one eye and penetrating keratoplasty (PK) on the fellow eye.
Over the past decade, Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) has surpassed penetrating keratoplasty (PK) as the preferred treatment method for patients with corneal endothelial dysfunction [1].
Such surgery is described as descemet's stripping (automated) endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK, or sometimes just EK for short).
Purpose: To evaluate the results and complications of Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) in the treatment of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (PBK).
Due to major innovative steps (e.g., [3-5]) and further refinement (e.g., [6, 7]), posterior lamellar techniques such as Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) have become the mainstay for the surgical treatment of endothelial dysfunction and, thereby, restoration of vision [8-11].
Professor Buckley said: "To be able to create predictably thin donor discs is the aim of every surgeon carrying out a procedure called Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) which is revolutionising the management of age-related corneal visual impairment.
Purpose of the current paper is therefore to report trends in indications and techniques in a cohort where both DMEK and DSAEK were implemented.
It differs from Descemet's stripping-automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) for the use of a grafted material that includes no corneal stroma but only endothelium and Descemet membrane.
