Views: Surgical Techniques in Anterior and Posterior Lamellar Corneal Surgery. Product code: Mastering Corneal Surgery: Recent Advances and Current Techniques by Dr. Amar Agarwal and Dr. Thomas John, along with more than 50 contributors, covers the most recent innovations in corneal. Anterior lamellar keratoplasty can correct all corneal opacities in patients who have normal endothelium, rendering penetrating keratoplasty as the surgery of last resort. Unnecessarily transplanting donor endothelium predisposes the patient to a set of potential problems. To describe a new surgical technique for deep stromal anterior lamellar keratoplasty. In eye bank eyes and sighted human eyes, aqueous was exchanged by air, to visualise the posterior corneal.
Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK) is an alternative treatment that selectively replaces the front part of the cornea when it is scarred or distorted. In ALK, the surgeon dissects the cornea into two thin pieces and removes the front, scarred part. A matching area of healthy tissue from a donor cornea . Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) DALK is a partial-thickness cornea transplant procedure that involves selective transplantation of the corneal stroma, leaving the native Descemet membrane and endothelium in place. A trephine of an appropriate diameter is used to make a partial-thickness incision into the patient's cornea, followed by.

Focal Point COLLECTION (7 Module) Surgical Techniques in Anterior and Posterior Lamellar Corneal Surgery. After completing the lamellar dissection of the host cornea, the lamellar donor will be prepared. The donor cornea will be mounted on the artificial anterior chamber and well pressurized. The donor was trephined partially with the same diameter and dissected using spatulas. Then, the donor cornea will be placed and sutured.
Superficial anterior lamellar keratoplasty consists of an automated lamellar therapeutic keratoplasty (ALTK) as an optical procedure for the superficial stromal disorders and lamellar grafting as a therapeutic procedure for corneal perforation, corneal thinning, or ocular surface : Naoyuki Maeda. Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is a technique of lamellar transplantation surgery proposed for the treatment of corneal diseases that do not affect the endothelium.1, 2 The donor lamella directly positioned on Descemet membrane 3 preserves the recipient endothelium, decreasing the risk for immunologic rejection. Anwar and Teichmann 3 introduced the big-bubble technique in DALK to Cited by: The traditional technique for corneal transplantation, penetrating keratoplasty (PKP), involves transplantation of all corneal layers. Over the past decade though, there has been a trend away from PKP as surgeons have developed partial thickness transplant procedures, such as deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty and Descemet stripping automated endothelial by: 7. This video demonstrates Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) surgery using Melles Technique, in a patient with Lattice corneal dystrophy.
