The use of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides anterior segment surgeons with enhanced visualization during corneal transplantation contributing to better results and increased safety. Prof. Nikolaos Bechrakis demonstrates its value through three clinical cases.
In this clinical case, the patient had an extremely pathologic cornea, with the epithelium showing bullous keratopathy and a very irregular posterior surface of the cornea. The image from the EnFocus intraoperative OCT indicated the area where previous surgery had been performed on the cornea and where the cornea was trephined for the new keratoplasty.
The intraoperative OCT showed how the viscoelastic was filling the anterior chamber. It allowed Prof. Bechrakis to see exactly where the previous scars were to avoid the area where the previous trephination had occurred.
