PURPOSE To report 6 and 12 month results using precut tissue for Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and correlate donor characteristics with clinical outcomes. DESIGN Prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS We reviewed 100 donor corneas precut for 100 eyes of 90 DSAEK patients. METHODS Our first 100 consecutive cases of DSAEK with precut tissue were entered into a prospective protocol. Donor characteristics and the visual… CONTINUE READING
