In the course of the last few years, Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) has established itself as the surgical treatment of choice for endothelial decompensation and is now the most popular type of keratoplasty performed in the USA [1-11]. Its advantages over penetrating keratoplasty (PK) includes the avoidance of opening the globe, the minimization of postoperative refractive error, and the short time required for wound healing, thus allowing complete suture removal as early as few weeks postoperatively.

Abstract

In the course of the last few years, Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) has established itself as the surgical treatment of choice for endothelial decompensation and is now the most popular type of keratoplasty performed in the USA [1-11]. Its advantages over penetrating keratoplasty (PK) includes the avoidance of opening the globe, the minimization of postoperative refractive error, and the short time required for wound healing, thus allowing complete suture removal as early as few weeks postoperatively.
