    Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Big-Bubble Technique

    Purpose To evaluate the feasibility of intraoperative anterior segment (AS) optical coherence tomography (OCT) for quantification of the corneal depth reached with the dissecting cannula used for deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty, as well as its correlation with the success rate of big-bubble formation. Design Retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. Participants One hundred consecutive keratoconus patients. Intervention Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty was performed using the big-bubble technique. During surgery, the cannula used for pneumatic dissection was inserted into the peripheral stroma and advanced as deep and far toward the center as believed adequate by the surgeon. Then, after retracting the cannula ...
