Abstract In an attempt to enhance postoperative survival of donor endothelium, the conventional technique for Descemet membrane stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) was modified using the prototype of a glide specially designed to facilitate graft delivery and minimize surgical trauma. Instead of using the so-called taco technique, the Busin glide is loaded with the donor lamella, and a microincision forceps is inserted into a temporal side entry and passed across the anterior chamber, exiting through a nasal clear cornea tunnel to grab the graft and drag it into the eye. In 10 patients who underwent DSAEK, mean (SD) postoperative endothelial cell loss was 20.0\% (2.6\%) at 6 months, 23.5\% (2.8\%) at 12 months, and 26.4\% (2.7\%) at 18 to 24 months. Reduced trauma to the graft using our modified technique limits endothelial cell loss after DSAEK to the level recorded after conventional penetrating keratoplasty (PK).
