A keratoprosthesis is an option for patients with a failed cornea and poor prognosis for corneal transplant. Such patients with severe corneal disease may have open-angle or closed-angle glaucoma before surgery, and those without glaucoma often develop elevated . Keratoprosthesis is a surgical procedure where a diseased cornea is replaced with an artificial cornea. Traditionally, keratoprosthesis is recommended after a person has had a failure of one or more donor corneal transplants. More recently, a less invasive, non-penetrating artificial cornea has been developed which can be used in more routine cases of corneal blindness. Research and development of artificial corneas (keratoprostheses) in recent years have evolved from the use of rigid hydrophobic materials such as plastics and rubbers to hydrophilic, water-swollen hydrogels engineered to support not only peripheral tissue integration, but .

Purpose: To present a new treatment modality for recurrent corneal melting in a patient with a Boston type I keratoprosthesis (B-KPro) including in situ corneal cross-linking (CXL) and lamellar. keratoprosthesis irrespective of design as there is a potential space between the plastic cornea and the tissues which can allow infection to track into the eye. Worst-Singh type of keratoprosthesis. Steps in Worst-Singh keratoprosthesis implantation-1 A peritomy is done. Oct 12,  · Temporary keratoprosthesis (TKP) Contributor: Jesse Vislisel, MD; Mark A. Greiner, MD. This patient underwent repair of a ruptured globe injury and subsequently developed a complete retinal detachment. There was insufficient view through his injured cornea to perform a retinal detachment repair, so a temporary keratoprosthesis (TKP) was placed.
