Abstract
PURPOSE
To evaluate the efficacy of five-layered reinforced amniotic membrane (AM) transplantation for treating deep corneal ulcer or perforation. CASE SUMMARY: We performed a five-layered reinforced AM transplant in three cases of corneal ulceration or perforation using mechanical compressed lyophilized AMs. In all cases, the perforated cornea healed with re-epithelization within 2 weeks and the ocular surface was stabilized for more than 1 year. CONCLUSIONS: Five-layered reinforced AM transplantation may be an alternative method for treating deep corneal ulcers or perforations.
