Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty Combined with Phacoemulsification and Intraocular Lens Implantation

Objective: This study aims to assess visual anatomic outcomes and complications of Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) combined with phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in patients with coexisting endothelial dysfunction and cataract. Methods: Triple DMEK (DMEK with simultaneous cataract surgery) was performed in 39 eyes of the 32 patients. Best-corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA), Endothelial Cell Density (ECD), Central Corneal Thickness (CCT), Refractive Spherical Equivalent (RSE), air injections (Re-bubbling) frequency and complications were assessed preoperatively and postoperative months 1, 3, 6 and 12. Results: BCVA increased from 1.22±0.32 logMAR preoperatively to 0.19±0.18 (n=33) and 0.11±0.09 (n=27) at six months and 12 months after surgery, respectively (p
