PDEK, New inner-layer cornea transplant technique - A State of Sight #92

Pre-Descemet's Endothelial Keratoplasty (PDEK) is a new type of corneal transplantation that can be used for patients with swelling or edema of the cornea. This technique is a variation of Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK), and is less like Descemet's Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK).

Watch this episode of A State of Sight with Isaac Porter, MD to learn more about this exciting new technique. This method was first reported by Dr. Amar Agarwal based upon ideas that Professor Harminder Dua first developed when he discovered a previously unknown Dua's layer of the cornea.
