This textbook for corneal and anterior segment surgeons covers all endothelial keratoplasty procedures commonly used for corneal transplants such as DSEK, DMEK and DSAEK. F. Price (medical director, Price Vision Group) and M. Price (executive director, Cornea Research Foundation of America) use diagrams and photographs to explain basic DSEK techniques as well as advanced methods for dealing with the air management of posterior grafts, postoperative care and special considerations for the eyes of Asian patients. A section on eye banking is also presented, including discussions of eye bank precut versus surgeon-dissected donor tissue. A DVD is included that contains video of actual DSEK procedures.
