Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty versus descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty.

DMEK provided faster and more complete visual rehabilitation when compared with DSAEK, however, there were no significant differences concerning endothelial cell survival within a 6-month follow-up. Expand
Ultrastructure of the posterior corneal stroma.
The findings did not provide any evidence for the existence of a distinctive acellular pre-Descemet's stromal layer in the human cornea, and the intrastromal cleavage plane after pneumodissection seems to be nonreproducibly determined by the intraindividually and interindividually variable distances of keratocytes to DesceMET's membrane.

Randomized Comparison of Topical Prednisolone Acetate 1% Versus Fluorometholone 0.1% in the First Year After Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty
DMEK has a remarkably low rejection episode rate (<1% through 1 year), as confirmed in this prospective randomized study, and provides a unique opportunity to reduce postoperative topical corticosteroid strength and thereby reduce the risk of steroid-associated complications. Expand
Clinical and Ultrastructural Characteristics of Graft Failure in DMEK: 1-Year Results After Repeat DMEK

A preexisting subclinical corneal endothelial dysfunction may contribute to primary DMEK failure and repeat DMEk can be performed safely with good long-term outcome. Expand
Graft adhesion in descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty dependent on size of removal of host's descemet membrane.

A larger descemetorhexis in DMEK is correlated with better graft adhesion and lower rebubbling rates, therefore, patients with a larger desCEmetor hexis require less intensive follow-up. Expand
Extracellular matrix alterations in late-onset Fuchs' corneal dystrophy.

The findings provide evidence for a specific upregulation, production, and deposition of collagen types III and XVI, agrin, TGFBI, and clusterin in late-onset FCD and thus point to the importance of matrix alterations in the pathophysiology of FCD. Expand
Preventive Effects of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids on Peroxide Mediated Oxidative Stress Responses in Primary Human Trabecular Meshwork Cells
Based on the observed side effects of omega-6, omega-3 appears to be the more beneficial fatty acid in respect of prophylactic intake for prevention of a glaucomatous disease. Expand
Air Versus Sulfur Hexafluoride Gas Tamponade in Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty: A Fellow Eye Comparison
The results confirm the previously reported better graft adhesion when using an SF6 gas tamponade in DMEK without increased endothelial cell toxicity. Expand
Pressure-Induced Interlamellar Stromal Keratitis After Laser In Situ Keratomileusis
It is important to measure the IOP and be suspicious when a diffuse interface haze occurs after the first postoperative week, is resistant to or even exacerbates in response to an increase in topical steroid treatment, and is not associated with other causative events. Expand
Optimizing outcomes with Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty
DMEK offers significant advantages over Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty such as less immune reaction and better visual acuity because of less higher order aberrations and will foster the more widespread use of DMEK among corneal surgeons. Expand
