- Surgical device for more rapid, more safer and more standardised Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK).
- Technology Benefits
- Operation more rapid, safer, more standardized and simpler
Better and faster uncoiling of the transplanted Descemet membrane
Reduced risk of complications
Increased success rate
Reduced duration of surgery
Innovative device for simplified Descemet membrane-endothelium graft preparation and loading of a storage/cultivation box or an injection cartridge
One operation for two steps with one device
No touching of the transplant incl. endothelium
- Technology Application
- Cornea Transplantation
- Detailed Technology Description
- The inner layer of the cornea (endothelium) can become cloudy after cataract surgery or in the case of Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy. The pathological inner layer – consisting of the Descement membrane and endothelium – is replaced within an operation called DMEK (Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty). During the process the layer is introduced into the front chamber of the patient’s eye in a coiled status by means of a so-called DMEK-shooter.
