uses keyhole incisions into the eye and we only replace the diseased layer.
This textbook contains 13 chapters on deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty
(DALK), along with surgical videos demonstrating techniques (available online).
However, other surgical options are viscoelastic injection, suture fixation, and endothelial or penetrating keratoplasty
in cases where DMD progress to a stage of corneal decompensation.
Our interest was focused on conventional DSAEK because it is the most widely used method of endothelial keratoplasty
that has also been performed in our eye bank.

The French national waiting list for keratoplasty
created in 1999: patient registration, indications, characteristics, and turnover (in French).
22 motion to be allowed to travel to the United States, Tuason said she was suffering from a corneal edema in her right eye, and had been advised by her doctor to undergo a Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty
procedure abroad as the procedure is 'not routinely done in the Philippines.'
She is suffering from corneal decompensation that has decreased below the threshold for normal function, so she is constrained to undergo a Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty
In the corneal Transplant or keratoplasty
procedure the damaged cornea of the eye is replaced with a healthy Donor graft.
Its effect was evaluated in comparison with patients without a history of keratoplasty
Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty
(DSAEK) has recently become the most popular surgical treatment for corneal endothelial dysfunction worldwide [1, 2].
For more than half a century, penetrating keratoplasty
(PKP) has been the most common allograft surgery and caters successfully to most causes of corneal blindness, including stromal or endothelial disease.
For the study, appearing in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology, the team looked at three-year graft success rates among a total of 1,090 individuals (1,330 eyes) who underwent cornea transplant via Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty
by 70 surgeons at 40 surgical sites.
In the last decade, the utilization and efficacy of endothelial keratoplasty
(EK) has increased expotentially for the treatment of endothelial disorders such as Fuchs' dystrophy, pseudophakic bullous keratopathy, and iridocorneal endothelial syndrome.
