Abstract
To describe a novel technique of combined penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) with implantation of a new scleral-fixated, sutureless, posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC-IOL) (Soleko, Carlevale).
New surgical approach description.
We describe a novel technique for the management of PKP graft failure and posttraumatic aphakia with repeat-PKP and simultaneous implantation of a new scleral-fixated, sutureless PC-IOL. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient reported marked improvement in his vision. Up to 6 months postoperatively, the graft showed no signs of failure or rejection, the intraocular lens remained well-positioned, and no complications were observed.
The favorable final outcome of our patient suggests that simultaneous PKP and implantation of this new scleral-fixated, sutureless PC-IOL may represent an efficient and effective method for the management of aphakia combined with corneal scarring.
