SINGLE PATIENT EXPANDED ACCESS OF A PROSPECTIVE, MULTICENTER CLINICAL TRIAL DESIGNED TO EVALUATE THE SAFETY AND PROBABLE BENEFIT OF THE KERAKLEAR NON-PENETRATING KERATOPROSTHESIS IN SUBJECTS WITH CORNEAL OPACITY WITH POOR PROGNOSIS FOR CORNEAL TRANSPLANT
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
This is for a "Single Patient Expanded Access" of an on-going study (IRB#2017-3526). In the on-going study, the maximum number of subject will be 35 subjects (35 eyes) will be implanted with the KeraKlear device and will be followed for one year. However, this expanded access is for single patient use below is a description of patient condition and circumstances necessitating treatment: 88 year old female with 2 previous failed corneal transplants, had significant scarring and mild edema, surface well epithelialized, has potential for 10 letters of improvement in visual acuity. Patient is high risk for recurrent corneal rejection and failure and therefore would not be a candidate for standard corneal transplant. She would potentially do well with a partial thickness artificial cornea such as the KeraKlear.
