• DMEK Democratized - New Technique to Start DMEK Description: The Iowa technique flattens the learning curve for DMEK by solving challenges posed by tissue preparation, graft injection and high re-bubble risk. The fundamentals of the technique are: 1. Iowa Lion's Eye Bank prepared pre-stripped DMEK tissue (usually 8.0 mm graft) 2. Modified Jones Tube Glass Injector 3. Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) gas for extended graft tamponade (Rebubble rate below 5% for first 47 cases) Subspecialty: Cornea / External Disease Level: Advanced Uploaded By: ISRS Multimedia Library
