|DALK||Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty-
DALK graft consists of anterior layers of the donor cornea( epithelium to stroma). Recipient endothelial cells and Descemet’s Membrane are left in place
|DMEK DMAEK||Descemet’s Membrane (Automated) Endothelial Keratoplasty:
DMEK graft consists of isolated layers of the donor cornea (Descemet’s and endothelium).
|Descemet’s Stripping with (Automated) Endothelial Keratoplasty:
DSEK graft consists of isolated layers of the donor cornea (stroma, Descemet’s and endothelium). Prepared by eye bank or surgeon.
Ultra-thin: Customized thickness graft to meet predetermined tissue criteria. Between 60 to 200 microns thick. Prepared by eye bank.
|LAK||Laser Assisted Keratoplasty/Intralase Enabled Keratoplasty:
LAK/IEK graft consists of a donor cornea that has been laser cut using a pre-programmed algorithm to make cuts at specific depths to create specific corneal shapes. Recipient cornea is cut using the same algorithm to precisely match donor cornea.
|KLA||Keratolimbal Allograft||KLAL graft consists of full thickness cornea with an intact 2-4 mm skirt of conjunctiva attached at the limbus.|
|K-pro||Keratoprosthesis||Corneal tissue provided for inclusion in collar button design keratoprosthesis.|
|LKP(Tectonic)||Lamellar Keratoplasty Tectonic “patch graft” procedures For use in ocular procedures not
requiring viable cells, such as glaucoma shunt coverage, injury repair, eccentric corneal ulceration and as a spacer for some models of keratoprosthesis.
|Fresh corneal tissue preserved in Optisol-GS, intended for use in procedures where a functional endothelium is not required.|
|PKP||Penetrating Keratoplasty||Full thickness donor cornea used to replace recipient cornea.|
|Long- Term Cornea||For use in ocular procedures not requiring viable cells, glaucoma shunt coverage, injury repair, eccentric corneal ulceration and as a spacer for some models of keratoprosthesis.||Preserved corneal tissue in glycerin, shelf stable for up to 2 years.|
|Sclera (In various sizes)||For use in ocular procedures not requiring viable cells, including glaucoma shunt coverage, injury repair, eccentric corneal ulceration, etc.||Preserved in ethyl alcohol, shelf stable for up to 2 years.|
