Announcing the advent in Mumbai of a revolutionary technique of corneal transplantation without sutures called as DSEK.

What is DSEK?
DSEK( Descemets Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty)refers to a new method of advanced corneal surgery, wherein the dysfunctional endothelial layer of the cornea is selectively replaced with healthy donor tissue, without the need for surface incisions or sutures. Tectonically the cornea is much stronger following DSEK as compared to conventional full thickness corneal transplant

Before DSEK came in to practice, conventional corneal transplantation was the only solution for those ailing with corneal diseases.

What is conventional corneal transplantation?
Conventional corneal grafting procedure requires full thickness excision of the host cornea, followed by replacement of corneal tissue from donor cornea. This corneal tissue needs to be secured in position with multiple sutures.

How is DSEK better than conventional corneal transplant?

Advantages of endothelial keratoplasty over traditional penetrating keratoplasty (PK) include rapid recovery times, decreased postoperative astigmatism, decreased risk of suture related complications. Tectonically the cornea is much stronger following DSEK as compared to conventional full thickness corneal transplant.
