As DSAEK gains popularity, we strive towards faster and better visual results. Recent evidence has confirmed suspicious that thinner tissue is compatible with better visual outcome. For this reason, some surgeons prefer to perform DMEK for patients with endothelial failure, however, increased surgical difficulty, higher detachement rate, and limitations in eyes with more complex pathology render DMEK inadvisable for some patients.
With Ultra-Thin DSAEK (UT-DSAEK), we aim to achive the visual results of DMEK, whilst maintaining the surgical ease od DSAEK.
