... technique was popularized by Price et al. [39], who termed it Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK). In brief, recipient's diseased Descemet's membrane (DM) and endothelium are first stripped and removed ( Figure 2A). Donor corneal graft is then prepared by stripping a thin layer of stromal tissue, DM and endothelium, which is then transplanted into the recipient's bare stromal bed ( Figure 2B). ...

... a further refinement of EK was made by Melles et al. [40] in which the stromal portion of the donor was completely eliminated so that the graft consists purely of DM and endothelium. DMEK ( Figure 2A and C) essentially replaces the same portion that is stripped off the recipient cornea and thus perfectly replicates pre-operative corneal anatomy, unlike other procedures. ...
