DSAEK with internationally shipped donor corneas has minimal endothelial cell loss

Descemet’s stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty with internationally shipped precut donor corneas yielded sufficient outcomes with minimal endothelial cell loss, according to a study.One hundred thirty-four eyes of 128 patients in Kyoto, Japan, who underwent DSAEK with precut donor corneas internationally shipped from Portland, Ore., or Seattle were analyzed in the retrospective noncomparative case series for endothelial cell density loss related to international shipping, postoperative endothelial cell density, visual recovery and complications.
