    Role of Microscope-Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography in paediatric keratoplasty: A comparative Study

    Purpose To evaluate role of Microscope-Integrated Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography (i-OCT) in paediatric keratoplasty. Design Combined prospective and retrospective, comparative, interventional study Setting Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, India Methods Seventy-five children aged ≤16 years planned for keratoplasty were divided into two groups and compared for intraoperative course and postoperative outcome. In Group-1 (prospective group, n=56), pre-operative anterior segment visualization was performed clinically, with ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and i-OCT and keratoplasty was commenced under i-OCT microscope. In Group-2 (retrospective group, n=19), conventional microscope was employed during keratoplasty. Results In Group-1, i-OCT, UBM and clinical examination detected ...
