In Vivo Laser Confocal Microscopy after Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty

Objective: To investigate the in vivo corneal changes in patients with bullous keratopathy who underwent Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) with the use of in vivo laser confocal microscopy. Design: Single-center, retrospective clinical study. Participants: Five eyes of 4 patients (3 men, 1 women; mean age, 61.3±9.6 years) with bullous keratopathy who had undergone successful DMEK were enrolled in this study. Testing: In vivo laser confocal microscopy was performed before and 1, 3, and 6 months after DMEK. Main Outcome Measures: Selected confocal images of corneal layers were evaluated qualitatively (Read more...)
