Abstract Details


To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the use of tissue adhesive (TA) (ReSure Adherent Ocular Bandage)in DSAEK.

Setting: Eye Institute, Athens, Greece


23 consecutive cases were randomly assigned. In Group A, sutures were used to close the cornea, and in Group B, the TA was used. All cases were evaluated for age, sex, UDVA, CDVA, IOP, and weekly changes in refraction and topographic cylinder as well as possible complications peri-operative. The follow-up time was 8 to 21 months (9.5).


Cylinder change: 2.2D for Group A and 1.1D for Group B. Two repositionings in group A only.


TA may be a valuable adjunct in clear-cornea cataract surgery in reducing astigmatic change, reducing graft dislocation and potentially reduce the risk of endophthalmitis due to early wound ingress.
