Abstract

An interventional case is described to report on the clinical outcome of Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty performed for iridocorneal endothelial syndrome. A Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty was performed in the eye of a 53-year-old woman with decompensated cornea secondary to iridocorneal endothelial syndrome. The transplant and the angle were evaluated with optical coherence tomography. Within 10 months postoperatively, the graft was clear and best-corrected visual acuity improved from 20/400 to 20/30. Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty appears to be an effective measure to treat corneal decompensation, improve vision, and facilitate the examination of the optic disc and retina in patients with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome.
