New Rieck DSAEK insertion instrument

Posterior lamellar keratoplasty with DSAEK is a new surgical technique for the treatment of endothelial corneal diseases.

Posterior lamellar keratoplasty with DSAEK is a new surgical technique for the treatment of endothelial corneal diseases. Advantages of DSAEK include faster rehabilitation and reduced astigmatism.

For a gentle insertion of the DSAEK donor tissue using the pull-through technique, Geuder has, in cooperation with Professor Peter Rieck of the Charité Eye Clinic in Berlin, developed a new DSAEK insertion instrument. The instrument's hinge design allows controlled folding of the donor tissue without overlapping or compression. During the surgical implantation procedure, the incision is kept open by the guiding plate, which also protects the tissue from being crushed while it is being pulled into the anterior chamber. The implantation procedure is suture-free and self-sealing.
