University of Illinois Eye & Ear Infirmary, Chicago, USA:
Penetrating Keratoplasty in Infectious Keratitis
The webinar will be 45 minutes with an additional 15 minutes for Q&A live with Dr. Cortina.
Infectious keratitis is a common corneal condition worldwide. Causes vary by region but can often lead to corneal opacity and permanent vision loss. In severe or non-responding cases it may also lead to perforation or progression to endophthalmitis. In certain cases, therapeutic keratoplasty is needed to control the disease or treat a perforation. In cases that can be controlled medically, residual corneal scarring may require keratoplasty for optical reasons. This webinar will discuss the indications, techniques and outcomes of therapeutic keratoplasty in infectious keratitis. It will also focus on timing of surgery and special considerations the corneal surgeon should take into account when performing these procedures.
