At 25days after trabeculotomy, Descemet's membrane was reattached to central cornea, which became clear.
Extensive Descemet's membrane detachment during 360。trabeculotomy can be prevented by cautious pulling of suture fragments and injection of viscoelastic into anterior chamber just before pulling.
When detachedDescemet's membrane was rolled too tightly to be reattached by conventional procedure such as mattress suture or gas injection, the reattachment of the Descemet's membrane can be achieved by unrolling the membrane usingviscoelastic(J Korean Ophthalmol Soc 41:788~792, 2000).

Fourth, in the event of a micro-perforation, the break in Descemets membrane is self-sealing by the air in the anterior chamber, and the dissection may be continued without loss of the intraocular pressure.
Although Descemets membrane may easily withstand the intraocular pressure in the presence of a Descemetocèle, we found that a large area of exposed, denuded Descemets membrane is fragile, and that a microperforation has a tendency to enlarge by itself due to the elastic properties of Descemets membrane.
If dissection of Descemets membrane is successful, these cases may benefit from the advantages of a lamellar keratoplasty, whereas the procedure is easily converted to a penetrating keratoplasty in the event of perforation.

 Endothelial Keratoplasty -- DLEK & DSEK Sutureless Corneal Transplant Surgery Techniques
This modification utilizing the stripping of Descemet’s membrane has been popularized as “Descemets Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty”, or “DSEK”, and has the advantage of being easier for the surgeon to perform and of providing a smoother interface on the recipient side for the visual axis.
The diseased endothelium and thickened descemets membrane of the recipient is easily punctured by the blunt tip of the reverse Sinskey hook and the hook then is used to score the recipient descemets membrane, following the path of the overlying circular template mark.
The same size diameter punch is used as the diameter of the descemet’s membrane disc that was removed from the recipient.

Gross anatomy The stroma or substantia propria, sandwiched between the epithelium and Bowmans layer anteriorly and the corneal endothelium and its supporting Descemets membrane posteriorly, is about 500 ?m thick and constitutes up to 90% of the total corneal thickness [1].
Whilst only 17% of the entire (anterior and posterior combined) lamellae are preferentially aligned in the corneal centre, this appears to increase as one moves to the periphery [9] until the very peripheral stroma, where lamellae take a circular course [3], [6] and [9].
Numerous fenestrations (80–160 nm), spine-like protrusions and smaller omega-shaped structures (40–60 nm) are observed along the plasma membrane and at the surface of keratocytes [16].

When Descemets Membrane and Endothelium are opaque, which is rare, completion of the preparation also includes continuing cylindrical incision 54 through the remaining posterior corneal layers, thereby excising the predetermined corneal section.
Once the cylindrical incision 54 terminates at the juncture of the stroma and Descemet's membrane, generally circular and inwardly directed terminal incision 70 is then made at the nethermost portion of endless incision 54 to facilitate removal of cylindrical plug 72.
The layers immediately adjacent posterior surface 63, Descemet's membrane 44 and endothelium 45, have not been excised and are integral with the remaining portion of the living cornea.

 U.S. Patent: 5634921 - Method and apparatus for modifications of visual acuity by thermal means - June 3, 1997
The procedure of heating the corneal membrane to correct a patient's vision is commonly referred to as thermokeratoplasty.
As known to those skilled in the art, the cornea includes an epithelium layer, a Bowmans membrane, a stroma, a Descemets membrane and a endothelium layer.
The cycle of dehydration and outward current flow continues until the resistance from the tip to the outer rim of the corneal surface, and the full thermal profile, is significantly high to prevent further current flow of a magnitude to further cause denaturing of the corneal tissue.

The opacities are typically asymptomatic, bilateral, more common in the central deep posterior stroma just anterior to Descemets membrane but can sometimes be observed in the anterior and/or peripheral stroma [83] and [85].
Stromal micro-opacities may be associated with reduced vision [82], [84] and [87] and redness [82], striae or folds in Descemets membrane [82] and with an increased endothelial permeability [86].

 From the Editor: March 1999
The deep sclerectomy procedure advocated by Mermoud and coauthors creates a Descemets' window that facilitates aqueous percolation through this membrane from the anterior chamber.
A collagen implant, placed in the bed of the sclerectomy, maintains a patent route for aqueous egress under the scleral flap to the subconjunctival space.
However, the success of this technique requires the unroofing of Schlemm's canal and the accurate identification of the canal's ostia on either side of the deep dissection.
