“To DMEK or not to DMEK, the role of registries and innovation” was the topic of this year’s EuCornea Medal Lecture, awarded to Donald Tan, MD.

Corneal transplant registries play an important role in providing data for long-term outcomes, and from there, the superior outcomes of Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty in terms of graft survival emerge. Over the years, more and more surgeons have converted to DMEK, and the technique has evolved. Tan introduced two innovations in DMEK: the EndoGlide DMEK procedure and, more recently, the use of an artificial iris in challenging cases.
