We describe the case of an 85-year-old man with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy. Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) was performed, and 6 weeks postoperatively, subtle separation of the 2 corneal layers was noted. To our knowledge, this case of post-DSAEK graftÂ detachment involves the longest interval between surgery and successful reattachment. ItÂ provides new insight into the survival of detached grafts following DSAEK, as well as a possible treatment for this complication. Â© 2008 ASCRS and ESCRS
