DMEK complications management and patient selection
This webinar is geared toward the transitioning DMEK surgeon looking to increase their chances of success as they begin to implement this technique. First, Dr. Cervantes will review patient selection and surgical planning to help surgeons understand which patients will make ideal candidates and which ones won’t. Second, he’ll explore complications that arise, primarily ones that are unique to DMEK. Dr. Cervantes will cover some pearls and surgical thoughts that might help prevent complications and minimize operator stress should they occur. Lastly, he’ll present some personal experiences from Eversight virtual wet labs, a learning platform that is unique to Eversight and provides surgeons a guided experience from comfort of their own surgical scope as they take on DMEK.
