Pre-Punched Cornea for DMEK
Using a submerged dissection technique, KeraLink provides a pre-punched cornea for DMEK, saving time in the OR, cost of a trephine, and the risks associated with preparing the donor cornea in the OR. Unique peripheral orientation marks are an additional benefit, which is made possible by having a central attachment and a pre-punched DMEK graft.
DMEK Orientation Marking Options
KeraLink offers two types of markings to confirm correct orientation, one-two (I-II) mark and the "S" mark. Both are placed with minimal manipulation and positioned on the periphery, which assists with knowing the position as well as the intraoperative centering of the graft.
"The KeraLink corneal tissue for the DMEK procedure is consistent in preparation, case after case. It is expertly prestripped to the center and the I-II reference marks are easily visible throughout the surgery, ensuring proper orientation of the graft. Using the precut tissue from KeraLink has reduced the angst and surgical time associated with on-site preparation of the DMEK donor tissue." - Peter J Polack M.D., FACS, Ocala Eye - Ocala, Florida
