Abstract Details

Purpose:

The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in pseudophakic bullous keratopathy eyes.

Setting:

Beyoglu Eye Training and Research Hospital

Methods:

Medical records were reviewed for demographics, baseline and follow-up best spectacle-corrected visual acuities (BCVAs), endothelial cell densities, and indication for DMEK. Operative notes were analyzed to identify any specific intraoperative or postoperative event

Results:

A total of 46 DMEK cases were reviewed. Thirteen cases were considered eligible for the study. Three eyes had a history of complicated cataract surgery and anterior vitrectomy, and 10 eyes had a history of cataract surgery. Ages ranged from 60 to 79 years (mean, 69.2 years). The preoperative mean BCVA was 1.8±0.5 logarithm of minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) and increased to 0.7±0.5 logMAR after 3 months. Mean preoperative endothelial cell density was 2612±211 cells per square millimeter; postoperative follow-up visit at 3 months showed a decrease to 1605±156 cells per square millimeter.

Conclusions:

DMEK seems to be successful in restoring visual acuity in pseudophakic bullous keratopathy eyes.
