TransplantREADY PKP prepunched PKP donor graft using the Abdullayev Interrupted Corneal Punch

Streamlining Surgical Procedures with TransplantREADY® PKP

Lions World Vision Institute introduces a novel TransplantREADY® PKP. Developed to save time in the O.R. and reduce expense, the Prepunched PKP is available in various diameters to meet surgeons’ preferences.

As our wide array of TransplantREADY services continues to grow, TransplantREADY, prepunched PK is now offered at LWVI with an accompanying recipient trephine, an LWVI exclusive service. With this convenient option, surgical centers do not need to maintain an inventory of donor punches or recipient trephines.

TransplantREADY® PKP is a prepunched PKP donor graft using the Abdullayev Interrupted Corneal Punch in the clean room environment of the eye bank. Prepared grafts are secured with a 1.5 mm partial thickness hinge securing the cornea during transport and is easily released by the surgeon in the O.R.

TransplantREADY® PKP is prepared using a specialty designed interrupted donor punch blade that provides a clean full thickness cut through the cornea. The interrupted portion of the donor punch creates a donor button with a partially cut 1.5mm bridge for easy separation.

“The TransplantReady PKP streamlines traditional PKP by shortening OR time, reduces surgical center inventory and expiration risks, while maintaining excellent surgical outcomes.”

“Pre-punched PKP has been a welcome change to my practice. I can still provide the same surgical results without my surgery center having to stock every different size donor punch and recipient trephine”

Suhrob Saidjonov, MD Microsurgery of the Eye, Tashkent, Uzbekistan

“It’s convenient that the graft is pre-punched and recipient trephine is included – saves significant time in the OR. All grafts have arrived intact and transparent.”
