Abstract Details


To present clinical outcomes of Tan EndoGlide (AngioTech, Network Medical Products, UK) and Busin Glide (Moria, FR) insertion techniques in DSEK (Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty).


Department of Ophthalmology, Collegium Medicum, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Bydgoszcz, Poland


DSEK was performed in 24 eyes, in 8 cases the surgery was combined with cataract phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. Surgery course and 6 month postoperative results of first 12 eyes performed with the use of Tan EndoGlide were compared with 12 consecutive eyes preformed with Busin Glide.


The Tan EndoGlide provided more stable anterior chamber and the donor tissue unfolding process was better controlled. Unfortunately, it requires a wider incision, which results in higher surgically induced astigmatism: mean refractory cylinder 6 month after the surgery was 1.56 D in Tan Endoglide group and 1.18 D in Busin glide group (P <0.05). The endothelial cell loss was 20.5% and 21.12% respectively (P>0,05). Mean CDVA was 0.18 LogMAR and 0.2 LogMAR, respectively (P>0,05).


The Tan EndoGlide provides better stabilization of the anterior chamber, however its use is connected with higher postoperative astigmatism. The visual outcomes and endothelial cell loss 6 month after the surgery were similar both groups. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
