Published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology Case Reports, the authors present a report on clinical outcomes and surgical technique of flanged intrascleral intraocular lens fixation with double-needle combined with either penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) or ultrathin Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (UT-DSAEK).

Five patients underwent combined flanged intrascleral intraocular lens fixation with double-needle technique and keratoplasty. Three patients underwent triple procedure (open sky intrascleral intraocular lens fixation with double-needle and PKP) secondary to ocular trauma or a failed corneal transplant.

Two patients underwent combined UT-DSAEK and intrascleral intraocular lens fixation for pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (PBK) and anterior chamber intraocular lens (AC IOL).

The authors concluded that flanged intrascleral intraocular lens fixation with double-needle technique combined with PKP or UT-DSAEK is a safe and effective method of visual rehabilitation without additional intraoperative complications.
