PURPOSE To determine corneal graft survival rates up to 10 years in a large consecutive series of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasties (DALKs). METHODS A retrospective, consecutive, noncomparative cases series of DALK procedures in a total of 806 eyes of 711 patients with stromal diseases and healthy endothelium performed between 2000 and 2009. Inclusion(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the success (eradication of infection) or failure (recurrence of infection in the cornea or sclera, or endophthalmitis) of early therapeutic deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) for active Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) poorly responsive to medical treatment. METHODS Retrospective, noncomparative case series of 11 patients (11 eyes)(More)
PURPOSE To report our clinical experience and 4-year follow-up results of Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with the suture pull-through insertion technique. METHODS This is a retrospective study of 195 eyes in which a posterior lamellar keratoplasty was performed between 2007 and 2011. The insertion of a folded donor lenticule(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate outcomes and possible advantages of 2 different techniques of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) in patients with keratoconus: cannula big-bubble DALK and needle big-bubble DALK (Anwar technique). METHODS This is a retrospective, nonconsecutive, comparative study of 507 eyes affected by keratoconus that underwent DALK between(More)
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy and safety of amniotic membrane transplantation for trabeculectomy in patients with previous failed filtering blebs. METHODS A consecutive series of 19 eyes from 18 patients with 1 or more failed trabeculectomies were enrolled in this retrospective study. Trabeculectomy, with amniotic membrane positioned as a "graft"(More)
