„MAGIC“ AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE IN EYE SURGERY
Keywords:eye surgery, amniotic membrane, corneal perforation
Our goal is to prove that during corneal perforation, when it is larger than 3 mm, we should not rush to perform keratoplasty (cornea transplant). First, we should do our best and fight to the end to preserve a patient's own cornea, in which the amniotic membrane will help us. In 15 patients with corneal perforation, where the size of the perforation exceeded 3-4 mm, surgical treatment was performed and a piece of the amniotic membrane was applied to the cornea. In 14 patients out of 15, their own cornea and moderate or high vision have been preserved. And only 1 patient required keratoplasty.
