Program

This is a very practical course in which you will acquire the abilities and knowledge to perform advanced DMEK in challenging eyes. This may include DMEK on phakic eyes, eyes with corneal edema, hypotonic eyes, eyes with an anterior chamber IOL, re-grafts and DMEK after a failed penetrating graft.

In the morning there will be scientific presentations and video presentations that will give you a detailed overview on how to approach advanced DMEK. This includes cases showed in videos and explained in detail by a team of experienced surgeons. They give tips, tricks and surgical considerations for preoperative patient and graft selection, intraoperative graft unfolding and postoperative complication management in challenging eyes.

In addition they explain how to solve “DMEK nightmares” (complications), both intra-operative such as upside-down, scrumbled, single roll and flushed out grafts and post-operative such as failed DMEK management and algorithm for re-bubbling.

They will also discuss the latest results and developments in advanced DMEK cases. Attendants are encouraged to ask for their preferences and main areas of difficulties so that they can discuss those topics more lengthily and show videos accordingly.

In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to practice advanced DMEK surgery on porcine and human eyes yourself. The staff will guide you through every step. You can also discuss your own challenging cases in a one-on-one consultation with one of the specialist surgeons.
