Penetrating keratoplasty from a temporal approach. 10/3/2000 Smith RJ, Chayet AS, Mondino BJ.
Am J Ophthalmol. 2000 Oct;130(4):517-9.

PURPOSE: To describe the technique of penetrating keratoplasty using a temporal approach. METHODS: Report of two cases of phakic penetrating keratoplasty performed with the surgeon positioned at the temporal side of the head. RESULTS: The temporal approach improved the surgical exposure, which eliminated the need for a bridal suture, facilitated the placement of the first two cardinal sutures, and facilitated subsequent placement of nasal sutures.
