PURPOSE To compare air and forceps dissection of Descemet membrane (DM) in regard to endothelial cell loss, apoptosis, and ultrastructural findings for transplantation in Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty. METHODS DM of 32 corneoscleral rims were separated using forceps dissection (group A) and air dissection (group B) and had been organ cultured for 1 week. The endothelial cell density (ECD) was evaluated before and immediately after DM dissection and during 1 additional week of… CONTINUE READING
