Anatomic and Visual Outcomes of Descemetopexy in Post-Cataract Surgery Descemet’s Membrane Detachment – Corrected Proof

Objective: To study the anatomic and visual outcomes of descemetopexy in Descemet's membrane detachment (DMD) after cataract surgery. Design: Retrospective case series. Participants: Clinical notes of 60 patients who underwent DMD after cataract surgery between 2007 and 2011. Methods: Descemetopexy was performed with air or 14% isoexpansile perfluoropropane (C3F8). Main Outcome Measures: Anatomical (reattachment rates) and functional results (best-corrected visual acuity) were studied. Secondary outcome measures were assessment of surgical complications and association of various factors with final visual outcome. Results: The mean age of the patients was 64.3±8.3 years, and the male:female ratio was 21:39. At 1 month, the (Read more...)
