DSAEK with AC-IOL yields high endothelial cell loss, graft failure rates

Descemet’s stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty with a retained anterior-chamber IOL resulted in high rates of endothelial cell loss and graft failure at 3 years in eyes with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy, according to a study.The prospective study included 132 eyes with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy. Eighteen eyes underwent DSAEK with a retained anterior-chamber IOL (AC-IOL). A control group comprised 114 eyes that underwent DSAEK with posterior-chamber IOLs left in place.
