Descemet Membrane Detachment After Nd:YAG Laser Capsulotomy in a Patient With Fuchs Dystrophy

Abstract

Purpose: Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is uncommon. It most frequently occurs as a complication of intraocular surgery. The aim of this study was to report a case of DMD after neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomy in a patient with Fuchs dystrophy. Methods: We describe the case of an 89-year-old man suffering from Fuchs dystrophy, who underwent cataract surgery on his left eye. Three years later, the patient presented with posterior capsule opacification, which was treated using Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. The day after the procedure, the patient came back for emergency treatment because of an acute reduction in his vision caused by a DMD. Results: Fifteen days after an initial treatment involving the injection of air into the anterior chamber coupled with ocular paracentesis, clinical examination revealed a significant improvement in visual acuity, reduction in corneal edema, and reattachment of Descemet membrane. These findings were confirmed using anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of DMD after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy.
