To assess the postoperative outcomes of limbal dermoid excision with corneoscleral graft transplantation. The charts of 8 consecutive patients (mean age: 13.0y) who had undergone limbal dermoid excision with lamellar corneoscleral graft transplantation by a single surgeon were retrospectively reviewed. Mean dermoid size was 7.75 mm (6.0-12.0 mm). Mean visual acuities (in logMAR units) before and after surgery were 1.8 and 1.7, respectively ( P =0.29). Spherical equivalents were 1.3 diopter (D) before surgery and 0...

Purpose: Fungal infections post keratoplasty due to contamination of the donor corneal graft have become important issues that need to be addressed. Here we report a case of fungal keratitis and endophthalmitis post penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) due to fungal contamination of the donor corneal graft. Observations: We present a 52-year-old male who underwent PKP with a donor corneal graft that was later found to be contaminated with fungus. At 4-weeks postoperative, infectious infiltrates suddenly appeared at the border between the host and donor corneal graft, and endophthalmitis concomitantly occurred...

BACKGROUND: Rhinosporidiosis is a rare chronic infection of the mucous membranes caused by the Rhinosporidium seeberi. Approximately 15% of cases of rhinosporidiosis are ocular, occurring mainly in the tarsal conjunctiva. There are only 11 cases of scleral melt with staphyloma formation associated with bulbar conjuctival oculosporidiosis and none of them was associated with partial regression of the scleral ectasia after a corneoscleral tectonic graft. CASE PRESENTATION: a 13-year-old girl with a progressively increasing black mass in the upper nasal part above the cornea of the left eye...

Invasion of corneal epithelium into the anterior chamber can arise after ocular surgery or penetrating injury. This is extremly rare with an incidence of 0-0.2%. Three different types can be distiguished: cystic, diffuse and mixed form. Only cystic epithelial invasion can be treated with a curative therapeutic option that is blockexzision with tectonic corneoscleral transplantation.

Corneal burn grade IV usually leads to blindness. Several different surgical techniques remain challenging owing to the extensive tissue damage. Here, we introduce a novel technique with a 15 mm corneoscleral and limbal homologous graft combined with sequential autologous corneal removal ab interno, with a vitrectomy probe to save the anterior chamber angle. In vivo anatomy with optical coherence tomography is the surgical key. A large 15 mm sclerocorneal graft is sutured on top of the remainder of the destroyed cornea and sclera after removal of the epithelium and conjunctiva, with anterior synechiolysis if necessary, peripheral iridectomy and conjunctivoplasty...

REVIEW
Albert Y Cheung, Edward J Holland
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) transplants limbal tissue attached to a corneoscleral carrier from a cadaveric donor to deliver a large number of stem cells to the recipient. The present article will provide a review of KLAL focusing on the recent literature. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent findings pertain to tissue selection, immunosuppression and adverse event profiles, and postoperative complications (particularly related to immunologic rejection). SUMMARY: KLAL permits the treatment of limbal stem cell deficiency eyes when there is no available living-related or autograft tissue with minimal risk of irreversible toxicity from modern systemic immunosuppression...

REVIEW
Katerina Jirsova, Gary L A Jones
The use of amniotic membrane in ophthalmic surgery and other surgical procedures in the fields of dermatology, plastic surgery, genitourinary medicine and otolaryngology is on the increase. Furthermore, amniotic membrane and its epithelial and mesenchymal cells have broad use in regenerative medicine and hold great promise in anticancer treatment. Amniotic membrane is a rich source of biologically active factors and as such, promotes healing and acts as an effective material for wound dressing. Amniotic membrane supports epithelialization and exhibits anti-fibrotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic and anti-microbial features...
