Corneal Endothelial Transplant (DSAEK, DMEK & DLEK)

by Thomas John

This book, Corneal Endothelial Transplant (DSAEK, DMEK & DLEK), deals with various types of corneal endothelial transplant. At the current moment, keratoplasty is undergoing an incredible paradigm shift in surgical technique. A field dominated by Penetrating Keratoplasty, where advances such as improved trephination systems, corneal preservation media, and suturing techniques while meaningful, have clearly been only incremental, is simultaneously going lamellar, minimally invasive, and sutureless. For several decades, full-thickness penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) has dominated the field of corneal transplantation and has remained as the gold standard for corneal replacement surgery. The book consists of 11 sections and 39 chapters. In Section 1, new areas of interest such as corneal hysteresis and biomechanical properties of the normal cornea are described. In addition, corneal physiology is covered. Also described in this section is the most important layer of the cornea that is responsible for corneal clarity, namely, corneal endothelium, both in health and in the disease state.
