DSAEK with concurrent phaco and IOL implant (triple procedure)
Spherical equivalent (SE) @ 3 months
Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) @ 3 months
Final SE and BCVA
Age at surgery
Wait time for surgery
Length of post-op follow-up
Table 1. Baseline data on patients who had DSAEK (n=10) and triple procedure (n=11). PBK = pseudophakic bullous keratopathy
Fig. 1. Age at surgery (years), donor age (years), surgery wait time (months) and post-operative follow-up (months) for both groups. No significant difference was found between groups using t-test (P >0.05, NS)
Table 2. Interim and final visual outcome for both groups. No significant difference was found when comparing SE values between groups (t-test, P>0.05, NS). BCVA = best-corrected visual acuity (Snellen), SE = spherical equivalent
Table 3. Complications in both groups. IOP rise was seen in 50% of DSAEK cases, all of which resolved with topical anti-glaucoma medications.
