Dealing with Corneal Opacity in Severe Endophthalmitis

Dealing with Corneal Opacity in Severe Endophthalmitis ABSTRACT Severe endophthalmitis with corneal opacity that was treated by combined penetrating keratoplasty using temporary keratoprosthesis and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). The QPT, implemented after trepanation of the opaque cornea, vitreoretinal surgery allows a correct visualization of intraocular structures. Once the vitreo-retinal surgery has been completed, the keratoprosthesis...
