Clinical results of 123 femtosecond laser-assisted penetrating keratoplasties

Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 05/18/2012

Femtosecond laser–assisted penetrating keratoplasty is a safe surgical technique. Due to the steps in profiled trephinations, the wound area is larger and theoretically the wound healing is, thus, faster and more stable. Complete suture removal is possible at an earlier time point compared to conventional penetrating keratoplasty. However, refractive results are not superior to those following conventional trephination.
