Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty

Combined cataract/EK surgery may require modifications to techniqueCataract surgery in eyes undergoing simultaneous endothelial keratoplasty requires several modifications in techniques.
Three reasons for adopting DMEK in routine EK casesUsing the Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) procedure can produce better visual results and lower risk of rejection than using the previous methods (DLEK and DSAEK). The method has become easier to learn and use than in the past, and should be considered as the primary EK procedure for most routine cases of endothelial failure.
DSEK or DMEK? Choosing the best for patients with corneal edemaCareful consideration must be given to the timing and choice of surgery in eyes with corneal edema.
Simplifying the corneal alphabet soup
Simplifying the corneal alphabet soupWhen it comes to acronyms, there is no ophthalmic sub-specialty that compares to corneal surgical procedures. For example, let’s take a look at corneal transplants and therapeutic surface treatments. Among KLAL, DALK, PLK, LK, DLEK, DSEK, DSAEK, DMEK, and DMAEK, there is no wonder why there is so much confusion.
