    Evaluation of Time to Donor Lenticule Apposition Using Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography in Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty

    Purpose: To evaluate the time to donor lenticule apposition in cases of Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) using microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT). Methods: Thirty eyes of 27 patients planned to undergo Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty were enrolled in this prospective study. In group I (n = 10), continuous intracameral positive pressure was maintained for 8 minutes. In group II (n = 10) and group III (n = 10), external corneal massage was initiated simultaneously with positive intracameral air pressure. The external corneal massage was continued till complete resolution of interface fluid; the positive intracameral pressure was maintained for 8 ...
