Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 05: Approaches to Keratoplasty.

The goal of this program is to improve the use and outcomes of keratoplasty. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Perform penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) with techniques that minimize induced astigmatism, myopic shift, and anisometropia.

2. Assess the relationship between higher order aberrations and degree of induced irregular astigmatism after PKP.

3. Select appropriate patients and optimize techniques used for lamellar keratoplasty.

4. Prepare donor tissue for use in endothelial keratoplasty.

5. Summarize the roles of rho-associated kinase inhibitor and Nrf2 in proposed novel treatment strategies for endothelial dysfunction.

The original programs were presented from the First Annual Ophthalmology Update, presented by the Boston University School of Medicine. They were presented by Richard K. Forster, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology, Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Wuqaas Munir, MD, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Director of Corneal, Boston, MA, and Ula V. Jurkunas, MD, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA.
