With advances in keratoplasty there is a move towards disease-specific procedures where the endothelial layers are grafted selectively, namely Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) (see Figures 3 and 4) when created manually, or referred to as Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) when the graft is created by a mechanical microkeratome, or more recently Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) (see Figure 5 and 6).
DSAEK (Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty) is the latest technique in corneal transplantation which offers clear post-operative vision and short recovery time to patients in need of new corneas.
