Additionally, the AAO released a report addressing the outcomes and complications of the Boston Keratoprosthesis (Lee, 2015). This review included 22 studies determined to be relevant for the assessment objectives. Nine studies were rated as level II evidence and 13 were rated as level III evidence. Excluded studies included Level III evidence, case reports, review articles, letters, editorials, and case series with fewer than 25 eyes. Their review indicated that in 9 articles, a best-corrected Snellen visual acuity (BCSVA) of 20/200 or better occurred in 45% to 89% of eyes. Five articles described a BCSVA of 20/50 or better in 43% to 69% of eyes, and 4 articles found a BCSVA of 20/40 or better in 11% to 39% of eyes. Retention rates of the Boston KPro ranged from 65% to 100%. Reasons for loss of vision after Boston KPro implantation most commonly included corneal melts from exposure keratopathy, endophthalmitis, and infectious keratitis or corneal ulceration. The two most common complications after surgery were retroprosthetic membrane formation and elevated intraocular pressure. The two most common posterior segment complications were endophthalmitis and vitritis. Their conclusions were that the Boston KPro device improves vision in cases of severe corneal opacification that are not amenable to corneal transplantation using human cadaveric keratoplasty techniques. However, a number of severe anterior and posterior segment complications can develop, making ongoing close observation paramount for individuals undergoing this surgery.

Wide-Field Landers Temporary Keratoprosthesis in Severe Ocular Trauma: Functional and Anatomical Results after One Year

S. Robert Witherspoon, M.D. - Retina Institute of Texas, P.A.

This video shows a 52-year-old, male patient who presented with a dislocated intraocular lens into the vitreous cavity and a corneal graft failure of the right eye. The patient underwent penetrating keratoplasty combined with pars plana vitrectomy using the Temporary Landers Keratoprosthesis.

We manufacture a wide range of temporary keratoprosthesis lens, that have four suture struts around its peripheral edge
