Overall success rates are relatively lower in Descemet-stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) in cases of failed penetrating keratoplasty (PK).

This video demonstrates a few tips and tricks for improving outcomes in such cases, emphasizing that donor size is the most important prognostic factor for success.
