Assembly of the Straiko DMEK Jones Tube

Assembly of the Straiko DMEK Jones Tube
Michael D. Straiko, M.D.

This is a video a corneal transplant technique for endothelial dysfunction such as Fuch’s corneal dystrophy. The video emphasizes use of a novel DMEK injector. The surgeries are being performed by Dr. Michael Straiko at Devers Eye Institute / Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital. The type of transplant discussed in this video is a DMEK (Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty). In this type of transplant only the dysfunctional inner layers of the cornea are replaced. This technique allows for a safer surgery and a more rapid recovery than conventional transplants. This is the latest iteration of endothelial keratoplasty. In this video Dr Straiko is explaining how to assemble a novel injector system that he developed to inject the DMEK graft.
