PURPOSE To compare 2 sites of air injection to prepare donor lenticules for Descemet membrane (DM) endothelial keratoplasty. METHODS Fifty-one human corneoscleral buttons from donors aged 4 to 57 years were used. Corneoscleral buttons were placed endothelial side up and a 27-G needle was inserted just outside Schwalbe line and advanced immediately beneath the endothelium. Air was injected centrally inside the 8-mm zone (group 1) or peripherally approximately 1 mm in front of the limbus (group… CONTINUE READING
