Abstract Details


Evidence of effectiveness of the cross -linking treatment in a patient with bilateral keratoconus and previously treated with intrastromal rings (intacs) insertion


Ophthalmology department Bambino Gesû Hospital, Rome,Italy


The Authors will present the clinical study of a 52 years old patient, suffering from bilateral keratoconus since he was 20 years old and subjected to penetrating keratoplasty surgery in 2000 for the LE (BCVA 8/10) and intrastromal rings insertion in 2005 for the RE (BCVA 6/10). The progressive BCVA reduction, the conus ectasy and the reduction of the central corneal thickness made the retreating of the case necessary.


Treated with cross-linking (following the international protocol and partially transepithelial) the patient was showing after 10 months from the treatment: BCVA 8/10, orbscan stabilization of the conus and central corneal thickness increased at the pachymetry measurement


Corneal cross-linking represents a valid therapeutic solution in evolving keratoconus cases and in patients treated intacs insertion.
