In this video, a Trocar AC maintainer is shown with PDEK and E-PDEK and combined with a glued IOL and iridoplasty. PDEK or Pre-Descemet's Endothelial Keratoplasty, as first described by Prof. Amar Agarwal and Harminder Dua, gives a more robust graft than a DMEK graft. It is more easily handled and less liable to tear. E-PDEK/E-DMEK or Endoilluminator Assisted PDEK/DMEK where an endoilluminator gives fascinating clarity and 3-dimensional depth perception and allows all steps of surgery to be carried out easily is also shown. Air assisted PDEK as described by Soosan Jacob is also shown. An iridoplasty is vital in those cases where air does not fill the AC well due to a broken iris-IOL diaphragm. The iridoplasty restores a taut iris-IOL diaphragm and allows a good air fill which is very essential for a successful PDEK.
