Extensive detachment of Descemet membrane after holmium laser sclerostomy.

PURPOSE: To describe a corneal complication and its surgical repair after holmium laser sclerostomy. METHOD: A 63-year-old woman had extensive detachment of Descemet membrane 3 months after holmium laser sclerostomy. The authors describe the case history of a detached Descemet membrane secondary to holmium laser sclerostomy and its subsequent repair. RESULTS: The patient achieved a visual acuity of 20/20 in the involved eye after descemetopexy with sodium hyaluronate and air combined with suturing. CONCLUSIONS: Detachment of the Descemet membrane should be recognized as a potential complication of holmium laser sclerostomy. Suturing should be considered as a method of repair if there is not spontaneous reattachment of the Descemet membrane.[1]
