Late detachment of donor graft after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty

By Massimo Busin and Priya R. Bhatt


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 graft detachment involves the longest interval between surgery and successful reattachment. It provides new insight into the survival of detached grafts following DSAEK, as well as a possible treatment for this complication. © 2008 ASCRS and ESCRS
