The purpose of this talk is to describe a new technique for corneal stromal dissection in Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty
(DALK) after a failed big bubble attempt. The technique utilizes blunt lamellar dissection with blunt-tipped corneal miniscissors.
Traditionally, a crescent blade is used for this dissection, which can be difficult for surgeons to master and is associated
with a high risk of perforation. Other techniques of blunt dissection, such as the Melles technique, cannot proceed after a failed
big bubble due to emphesyma in the stroma that prevents visualization of the spatula. In contrast, our blunt scissors lamellar
dissection technique takes advantage of the emphysema and microdetachments of Descemet?s membrane created during big
bubble attempt. In conclusion, this technique provides DALK surgeons with an easier, more reliable technique that can proceed
after failure of a big bubble, thereby significantly increasing the success rate of DALK. A case series study is needed to evaluate
the short and long term visual and clinical outcome of this technique.
