Comparison of anatomic and functional results between Z6 femtosecond laser assisted and manual trephination in deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for advanced keratoconus French version.

The management of severe keratoconus requires corneal transplantation, for which the gold standard is deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), preserving the healthy Descemet's membrane and endothelium. The safety and reproducibility of corneal cuts have been improved by the evolution of femtosecond lasers in refractive surgery, and femtosecond laser in DALK would seem to provide the same advantages over the manual method. In our retrospective study, we compare functional and anatomical results of femtosecond assisted DALK versus manual trephination DALK in patients with keratoconus in stage 4 of the Krumeich classification. It is a retrospective study including all patients with stage 4 keratoconus who underwent femtosecond laser assisted DALK between November 2012 and November 2015 in Nantes hospital. We compared those patients to a group of patients who underwent manual DALK in the same period, paired by age and maximal keratometry. We assessed visual acuity, pachymetry, endothelial cell density (specular microscopy), and keratometry before surgery and at 4, 8 and 12 months of follow-up. Laser settings and intraoperative complications were recorded. Nineteen patients underwent surgery by femtosecond assisted DALK, 6 women and 12 men with average age 30.2±10.8 years at transplantation. They were paired with a group of 17 patients who underwent manual DALK in order to compare results. Before surgery, mean visual acuity in the femtosecond group was 0.90 logMAR versus 0.89 logMAR in the manual group, showing no statistically significant difference (P=0.96). Both groups were similar in terms of preoperative age, mean keratometry, pachymetry and endothelial cell density. Average visual acuity post-surgery was 0.27, 0.26; and 0.14 logMAR for femtosecond DALK versus 0.27, 0.17 et 0.25 for manual DALK at 4, 8 and 12 months follow-up, respectively showing no statistically significant difference. After surgery, at 4, 8 and 12 months, mean pachymetry was similar in both groups, and average endothelial cell density was 2390 cells/mm(2) in femtoDALK versus 2531 cells/mm(2) in manual DALK at 12 months of follow-up, showing no statistically significant difference (P=0.5726). The rate of Descemet's membrane microperforations during the procedure was low and similar for both groups. Our study allows for a 12 month follow-up, with assessment of visual recovery, anatomical result and endothelial safety in a sample of 19 femtosecond laser assisted DALK with no statistical significant difference versus the manual trephination group. Femtosecond laser allows for increased reproducibility of the DALK procedure without reducing adverse effects during surgery. Femtosecond laser seems to improve the technique of the DALK procedure, and future developments could improve the reproducibility of DALK even further. A medical economics study would be necessary to determine the cost effectiveness of femtosecond laser assisted DALK.

Ophthalmic findings in patients with arterial tortuosity syndrome and carriers: A case series.

Arterial tortuosity syndrome (ATS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease hallmarked by tortuosity, stenosis, and aneurysm development of large- and medium-sized arteries. Mutations in SLC2A10, a gene that encodes the facilitative glucose transporter GLUT10, cause ATS. Several case reports have noted associated ophthalmic findings such as keratoconus, keratoglobus, and myopia without detailed descriptions or standardized examinations. We report the ophthalmic findings in a cohort of compound heterozygous ATS patients and heterozygous carriers of SLC2A10 mutations.

Effects of diabetes mellitus on biomechanical properties of the rabbit cornea.

To investigate the effects of diabetes on the biomechanical behavior of cornea in alloxan-induced diabetic rabbits. Diabetes mellitus (DM) was induced in 20 rabbits using alloxan, while another 20 age- and weight-matched non-diabetic rabbits served as controls. Eyes were enucleated after 8 weeks of inducing diabetes and the whole cornea was removed with a 3 mm wide scleral ring and tested under inflation conditions with an internal pressure range of 2.0-30.0 mmHg to determine their stress-strain behavior using an inverse analysis process. The blood glucose level (BG), advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs), central corneal thickness (CCT) and intraocular pressure (IOP) increased significantly in the DM group. There were statistically significant correlations between BG and AGEs (r = 0.768, p = 0.00), and between AGEs and CCT variation upon induction of DM (r = 0.594, p = 0.00). The tangent modulus (Et) of the cornea at four stress levels (1-4 kPa, equivalent to approximately IOP of 7.5, 15, 22.5 and 30 mmHg, respectively) was significantly higher in diabetic rabbits than in the control group (p < 0.05). Further, Et at stress of 2 kPa (which corresponded to the average IOP for the control group) was significantly correlated with BG (r = 0.378, p < 0.05), AGEs (r = 0.496, p < 0.05) and CCT variation upon induction of DM (r = 0.439, p < 0.05). IOP, as measured by contact tonometry, was also significantly correlated with both CCT (r = 0.315, p < 0.05) and Et at 2 kPa (r = 0.329, p < 0.05), and even after correcting for the effects of CCT and Et, IOP still significantly increased with both AGEs (r = 0.772, p = 0.00) and BG (r = 0.762, p = 0.00). The cornea of diabetic rabbits showed a significant increase in mechanical stiffness as evidenced by increases in corneal thickness and tangent modulus. The Et increase may be explained by a non-enzymatic cross-linking of collagen fibrils mediated by AGEs due to the high blood glucose levels in diabetes. The study also found significant IOP increases with higher blood glucose level even after controlling the effects of both corneal thickness and tangent modulus.
