PURPOSE: To determine the impact of total pars plana vitrectomies (PPVs) with peripheral shaving of the vitreous base on the rates of postoperative complications in patients with aphakic, snap-on type I Boston keratoprostheses (KPros). DESIGN: Retrospective, consecutive case series. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 48 eyes in 46 patients with implantation of aphakic, snap-on type 1 Boston KPros performed at a tertiary care facility between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2013, were included...

PURPOSE: To report the long-term outcomes of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (Kpro) in eyes with prior herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis. METHODS: Retrospective review of all Kpro procedures performed by a single surgeon from 1 May 2004 to 1 January 2015. RESULTS: 13 of 173 Kpro procedures were performed in 11 eyes with prior HSV keratitis. There was not a significant difference in the percentage of eyes with and without prior HSV keratitis with preoperative (9% vs 8%, p=1...

BACKGROUND: In severe Sicca syndrome and limbal stem cell deficiency, vision can be restored by an artificial optical implant into the cornea (keratoprosthesis, KPro). After multiple efforts to achieve long-lasting corneal fixation of such an optical implant, two methods have become established: KPro with biological support, such as osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP) made from the root of patient's own tooth or osteo-keratoprosthesis (OKP), made from cortical bone of the patient's tibia; and the Boston KPro...

PURPOSE: Light scatter results in degradation of visual function. An optical bench model was used to identify the origins of scatter in the setting of a Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro). The effect of various modifications in the device design and light-blocking configurations was explored. METHODS: A KPro was mounted on a contact lens holder on a bench, and forward light scatter was recorded with a camera attached to a rotating goniometer arm. Scattered light was recorded at different angles for different KPro modifications, and the point-spread function (PSF) curves were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: The Flying Eye Hospital (FEH) of ORBIS International is a capacity-building platform that trains ophthalmologists throughout the developing world on-board a fully functional eye hospital based in an airplane and in the local hospitals of developing countries. Corneal blindness (CB) is the second leading cause of blindness in most developing countries. Treatment of existing global CB requires effective eye banking and surgeons trained in corneal transplant. ORBIS International has programs that addressed both those needs...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To describe the practice of and recent developments in the osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis. RECENT FINDINGS: Formal psychological assessment and support have been described. A sub-aqua system for fashioning the osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis lamina; adoption of thicker laminae; use of bisphosphonate drugs; advances in laminar imaging; and use of bone augmentation and bone morphogenetic protein have been described for prevention, detection, and management of laminar resorption...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The Boston keratoprosthesis (BKPro) is often the only hope for visual rehabilitation in severe corneal disease. Since Food and Drug Administration approval of the device in 1992, there have been a series of advances in its design, surgical techniques, and postoperative care, which have widened its applicability and decreased associated complications. The purpose of this review is to highlight the indications, management, outcomes, and advances in the BKPro literature...

PURPOSE: To determine the presentation, risk factors, and outcomes of keratolysis after Boston type I keratoprosthesis (B-KPro). METHODS: Retrospective chart review. RESULTS: A total of 16 (14%) of the 110 eyes (96 patients) which underwent B-KPro implantation developed keratolysis at an average 20 ± 11 months. Retroprosthetic membrane (RPM), infectious keratitis, and corneal dellen were identified in 31%, 25%, and 13% of corneal melts, respectively...

A 25-year-old Syrian male with a previous episode of Stevens-Johnson syndrome with bilateral corneal cicatrization previously underwent surgery for Type 1 Boston Keratoprosthesis (K-Pro). Sixteen months after the K-Pro surgery, the patient presented with decreased vision to hand motion and microbial keratitis of the graft around the K-Pro with purulent discharge. Corneal scrapings were nonrevealing. B-scan in 3 days showed increased debris in the vitreous cavity and thickened retinochoroidal layer. Intravitreal tap and injections of vancomycin and ceftazidime were performed...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the rate of biofilm formation on bandage contact lenses worn by patients with the Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis (K-Pro) while on prophylactic topical vancomycin versus linezolid. METHODS: Patients wearing a bandage contact lens (BCL) with a K-Pro were eligible for enrollment. After irrigation of the ocular surface with 5% povidone-iodine solution, each patient was placed on either topical vancomycin 15 mg/mL or linezolid 0.2% BID for one month...

PURPOSE: To describe the results of Boston keratoprosthesis implantation in a patient with Stevens-Johnson syndrome following autologous submandibular gland transplantation. DESIGN: Observational case report. METHODS: We report the case of a man diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Autologous submandibular gland transplantation was performed in the right eye in 2008 to ameliorate tear film deficiency. Due to the improvement in the microenvironment of the ocular surface, Boston keratoprosthesis implantation was performed in the right eye in 2011...

PURPOSE: To review the incidence and features of vitreoretinal complications of a permanent Boston keratoprosthesis and to report the use and outcomes of 23-gauge vitrectomy to manage vitreoretinal pathology. DESIGN: Retrospective non-comparative, interventional case series. SUBJECT, PARTICIPANTS: 27 eyes of 27 patients managed with a Boston keratoprosthesis at Moorfields Eye Hospital over a 3-year period. METHODS: All eyes that underwent pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and had at least 6 months follow-up were analysed with a specific focus on the anatomical and histological characteristics of retinal detachment and outcomes of surgery...
