Abstract Details


To study the healing patterns of different femto-second laser assisted keratoplasty techniques at the graft-host junction versus the healing patterns in conventional methods


Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Egypt


20 cases were involved in this study. Ten cases were subjected to Femto-second assisted laser keratoplasty and the other group was subjected to conventional method. All cases were examined clinically and by anterior segment OCT to evaluate the graft-host junction and record the healing patterns after one month


Reports on wound gaping, overlapping of anterior lamella, rolling of posterior lamella, corneal edema and Descemet"s membrane undulations were recorded for each group and documented by photos


The wounds in Femto-second laser assisted keratoplasty were noticed to be more regular, with less posterior lamellar rolling and subepithelial gaping
