A new surgical option is available for patients with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy - Descemet's membrane removal. This was recently described by Kathryn Colby, MD, PhD from The University of Chicago.
Unlike the current modern operations for Fuchs dystrophy (DSEK and DMEK), in this procedure Descemet's membrane is removed from the back of the cornea, and no corneal graft is placed afterwards. Watch this episode of A State of Sight with Isaac Porter, MD to learn more about this innovative new option.
