"Separate the Wheat from the Chaff" - Descemet's Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty Graft Failure due to Accidental Implantation of Full-Thickness Precut Tissue.

Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2021 Oct-Dec;28(4):267-269. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Glaucoma, Anand Eye Institute, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

We present an interesting case of failed Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) graft, due to accidental implantation of a full-thickness precut tissue. A repeat DSEK was planned, and during the surgery along with the DSEK graft, an extra thick corneal tissue was also retrieved. Careful evaluation of both the explanted tissues revealed that the primary surgeon failed to separate a precut DSEK graft and implanted the entire full-thickness tissue. Read More
