Abstract Details


The clinical currency of corneal membrane defeat at extensive defect of Descemet membrane with following defect closing without surgical intervention.


Sv. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Complex, Krasnodar Branch, Russia


The cells condition of posterior epithelium corneal membrane and Descemet membrane were studied using endothelial microscopy, optical coherent tomography, algorithm of modern diagnostics and conservative treatment was applied.


Patient 68 years, male. After cataract phacoemulsification with femtosecond assistance in OD on 1 day II stage corneal oedema was ophthalmoscoped, on 2 day after performed dehydrative, anti-inflammatory and desensibilizing therapy in the center of cornea membrane a Descemet membrane defect 5.00mm in diameter was revealed. On discharge visometry OD 0.3 (uncorrected); tonometry according to Maklakov 21 mmHg; posterior epithelium cells are not determined. In 4 months after treatment visometry OD 1.0, tonometry OD 16mmHg; PEC 679(optical zone), 1263(paraoptical zone), cells are of one size of hexagonal form and located in the right rows.


The applied tactics of conservative patient management allowed to achieve high VA, full coating of Descemet membrane defect with corneal posterior epithelium cells without surgical intervention.
