PURPOSE To investigate the optimal time for Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) graft peeling, and to analyze the rolling properties of endothelial denuded grafts in a rabbit eye model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The vertical peeling force required to peel 1 mm wide Descemet membrane (DM) strips, was measured as the change in weight of the system during force application in a rabbit model. Twenty-one rabbit corneoscleral rims were stored in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) at 4°C, and… CONTINUE READING
