Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) is the current preferred technique of Endothelial Keratoplasty and involves replacing only the inner endothelial cell layer, rather than the whole thickness of the cornea, as happens in a conventional full-thickness graft(ChadRostron.co.uk).
This reference is a guide to the technique of DSAEK. Beginning with an introduction to the procedure and pre-operative evaluation, the following chapters discuss in detail different surgical techniques, including pre-operative preparation, anaesthesia, the procedure, post-operative follow up and complications.
Authored by recognised specialists in Australia, Hong Kong and India, this comprehensive manual includes more than 230 full colour illustrations and radiographic images, as well as a DVD demonstrating surgical techniques.
