Abstract
A 74-year-old woman was referred to our institute due to persistent corneal edema after cataract surgery. Slit-lamp examination revealed severe total corneal edema (obscuring anterior chamber and iris). Using a very high frequency (VHF) ultrasound scanning system (Artemis 2, Ultralink LLC) descement's membrane detachment (DMD) was diagnosed. VHF ultrasound scanning system could be a useful instrument in detecting post-cataract surgery DMD especially in patients in which diagnosis is difficult due to significant corneal clouding.
