Boston keratoprosthesis, type I
The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) is an artificial cornea that is generally reserved for individuals who are not candidates for traditional corneal transplant procedures. This patient had history of 3 failed DSAEK grafts in the setting of prior iritis, aphakic glaucoma, and a glaucoma seton. It was felt that further keratoplasty procedures were unlikely to be successful. A second glaucoma tube shunt was placed immediately prior to the placement of the Boston keratoprosthesis in this video.
