Abstract

Pre-Descemet’s endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK) has many potential advantages over other endothelial keratoplasty’s (EK) like Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) or Descemet’s stripping and endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK); however in the learning curve complications are inevitable. These complications are generally manageable, and the risk tends to decline as a surgeon gains experience in the new surgical technique. Intraoperative complications have major impact on the final postoperative outcome. Hence, this chapter discusses the common intraoperative challenges, which can be faced during the learning curve of PDEK and the methods of management of the same.
