Abstract Details


To evaluate central corneal thickness (CCT) and central graft thickness (CGT) changes following Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK).

Setting: Clinical and Research Eye Institute


Fourier-domain Anterior-Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT, Rt-Vue 100, OptoVue, Fremont, CA) was employed to obtain high-resolution meridional scans pre-operatively and up to one-year postoperatively. 41 cases were investigated, 27 female and 14 male. Central corneal thickness and central graft thickness data were obtained using three caliper tool measurements, reporting the average of each per eye.


Preoperative CCT was 589.78±49.24 (559 to 645) μm. One-month postoperatively, CCT was 736.26±34.52 (713 to 771) μm; CGT was 210.42±34.52 (145 to 243) μm. One-year postoperatively, CCT was 640.39±38.75 (569 to 684) μm; CGT was 153.15±42.91 (90 to 291) μm.


Central corneal and central graft thickness appear to stabilize after one-month postoperatively following DSAEK.
