Whereas deep corneal ulcers and corneal perforation historically were absolute indications for penetrating keratoplasty, these conditions can also be managed by using the inlay and multilayer AMT techniques. After healing and re-epithelialization are completed, a penetrating keratoplasty can then be performed for visual rehabilitation. By avoiding the need for a keratoplasty à chaud, the long-term outcome may be improved significantly [6, 10, 62]. To reduce corneal scarring and neovascularization, an additional AMT may be applied as a patch combined with the keratoplasty procedure.

To reduce corneal scarring and neovascularization, an additional AMT may be applied as a patch combined with the keratoplasty procedure. The anti-inflammatory factors liberated from the AM may decrease the risk of postoperative immune reactions [81].
