Abstract

Objectives: To discuss the historical background of osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP), patients' selection criteria, preoperative assessment of the patients, OOKP technique in detail and its modifications along with the complications involved.
 
Data Sources: Data for this narrative review were identified by searches of MEDLINE, Current Contents, PubMed, and references from relevant articles using the search term 'osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis', 'canine', 'eye', 'blindness' and 'Sjogren's syndrome'. Articles published in English medical literature containing studies and case reports on osteoodonto- keratoprosthesis are included in the present review.
 
Conclusions: OOKP technique is a complex artificial corneal (keratoprosthetic) transplantation procedure in which an autologus dental root-bone lamina complex and buccal mucosal graft are used to mount a poly-methylmethacrylate optical cylinder, as an artificial cornea. OOKP surgery is usually the last resort for end-stage corneal blindness, where other treatments have failed, or will not be successful.
