Surgical reattachment of stripped Descemet's membrane. Arch Ophthalmol 1967;78(1):31-4.
Dr Arbelaez, a pioneer in Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) Corneal Transplant in Oman, a surgery only some cornea surgeons worldwide are trained on, is also recognized for his high experience in cornea disease, keratoconus management and refractive surgery.
The research has shed light on a characteristic of a thin membrane called the Descemet's membrane which can cause difficulties for surgeons performing the intricate Descemet's membrane transplant procedure.
Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty; prospective multi-center study of visual and refractive outcomes and endothelial survival.
PCG is usually diagnosed at birth or during the first 3 years of life with clinical symptoms of increased IOP, opacification of the cornea, epiphora, photophobia, enlargement of the globe (buphthalmos) and rupture in Descemet's membrane.3 The disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern with variable penetrance.4
Collagen gels have been considered as a promising material to mimic cornea Descemet's membrane and stroma for its good biocompatibility and acceptable price.[8],[9] However, the hydrated properties make this material weak and hard to manipulate which largely limited its application.
22 motion to be allowed to travel to the United States, Tuason said she was suffering from a corneal edema in her right eye, and had been advised by her doctor to undergo a Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty procedure abroad as the procedure is 'not routinely done in the Philippines.'
She is suffering from corneal decompensation that has decreased below the threshold for normal function, so she is constrained to undergo a Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) procedure.
Firstly, the corneas [n = 30] were washed in sterile PBS and Descemet's membrane with endothelium was dissected with a fine forceps, similar to the stripping technique used for Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK).
Scleral flap is marked to help identify the structures 1-5.1: trabeculo- Descemet's membrane integrity, 2: scleral lake (SL), 3: intrascleral fluid (IF), 4: subconjunctival fluid collections (SCF) and 5: conjunctival microcysts (microcysts).
A slit-lamp examination revealed severe conjunctival hyperemia all around the periphery, remarkable corneal superficial neovascularization, especially, at 11 to 5 o'clock, corneal epithelial defects of the size approximately 3 x 4 mm, Descemet's membrane folds, and mild stromal edema were observed; however, no signs of inflammation were seen in the anterior chamber.
Histological changes are represented by missing Descemet's membrane and/or normal corneal endothelium, disorganized cystic ciliary and iridal epithelium, and heterotopia (e.g., stratified squamous epithelium, glandular tissue, or cartilage in the anterior segment) [3].
