PDEK ‘Live Surgery’ at IIRSI Chennai, 2014
The video on PDEK ( Pre- Descemet’s Endothelial Keratoplasty) showcases the separation of Pre- Descemet’s layer along with DM- Endothelial complex by creation of typical Type -1 bubble which spreads from centre to periphery. In this ‘Live surgery’ video on PDEK in PBK eye various challenges were encountered. Intra operative hyphema occurred due to trickling of blood from side port incision following descematorhexis. The coagulated blood was removed with the vitrectomy probe and the AC was cleared of blood. AC was observed to be shallow; so trocar was introduced and dry vitrectomy was done. This led to increase in the AC depth which is ideal for implanting the graft. The donor graft was then loaded and injected inside the eye followed by gentle unrolling of the graft with air and fluid.

This multicenter, prospective, randomized study compared outcomes with trabeculectomy (61 eyes) and the Ex-Press glaucoma filtration implant (59 eyes) placed under a partial-thickness scleral flap. At two years follow-up, outcomes were similar in terms of mean IOPs, medication use, and surgical success.
Although the Ex-Press group returned to baseline vision quicker, visual recovery was similar. The Ex-Press group experienced less IOP variation during the early postop period, and fewer postop complications (P = 0.013).
