Combined Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty and phacoemulsification with toric intraocular lens implantation for treatment of failed penetrating keratoplasty with high regular astigmatism
Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery,

Scorcia V et al. – The authors present the case of a 57–year–old woman who had combined Descemet–stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and phacoemulsification with implantation of a toric intraocular lens (IOL). Surgery was intended to treat a cataract developing in a post–penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) eye with high astigmatism and endothelial decompensation. Descemet–stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty combined with phacoemulsification and toric IOL implantation is a relatively simple and very effective procedure for eyes with endothelial failure and high post–PKP astigmatism. The speed of visual rehabilitation and final visual acuity achieved with this approach was superior to that obtained with other surgical procedures.
