Focal Points 2014 Module: An Overview of Keratoprostheses

When standard corneal transplants fail, a keratoprosthesis provides a key alternative treatment modality.

This Focal Points issue shows you how to recognize suitable candidates for implantation, select the appropriate keratoprosthesis, and manage potential complications. Video demonstrations of keratoprosthesis assembly and implantation are included.

Upon completion of this issue, you should be able to:

  • Describe the differences between the Boston type I and type II keratoprostheses
  • Describe the osteo-odonto keratoprosthesis
  • Summarize the patient selection process
  • Select an appropriate keratoprosthesis for a particular patient
  • Outline the surgical steps for keratoprosthesis implementation
  • Recognize and manage possible postoperative complications  

Focal Points issues are practical, hands-on discussions of the clinical issues you face daily. Each issue delivers high-quality, trusted ophthalmic information written and reviewed by leading experts.

Subscribers receive 12 issues a year, plus access to the Focal Points digital archive.
