Abstract

PURPOSE: To report complications encountered after 2 initial cases of deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty. METHODS: Review of clinical findings of 2 initial cases in which intraoperative and postoperative complications were encountered. Corneal buttons from the 2 cases were evaluated by light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. RESULTS: Complications encountered were related to the graft-recipient interface and the lamellar dissection of the recipient and donor corneas. CONCLUSION: Deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty is an evolving procedure that shows much promise. These 2 cases show that the procedure entails a separate skill set from penetrating keratoplasty and requires significant surgeon practice before being introduced into the individual's transplant practice.
