Abstract

Aims: To compare two different techniques for preparation of pre-cut lamellar corneal tissue for Descemet stripping automated keratoplasty. Background/Methods: Eight donor lenticules were created with a full pass of the microkeratome blade, which resulted in a posterior lamella and a free cap (anterior lamella off group (AL-off)). Contralateral donor lenticules were created with an incomplete pass of the microkeratome blade, which resulted in a posterior lamella and a hinged anterior cap (anterior lamella on group (AL-on)). Endothelial cell density, cellular viability and corneal thickness were evaluated before dissection, and 4 and 24 h after dissection. Results: Average pre-cut endothelial cell density was 2552.25 (±105) and 2572.25 (±110) cells/mm2 in the AL-off group and AL-on group, respectively (p=0.7). At 24 h cell density was 2404.87 (±74) in the AL-off group (p
