POYALES-GALAN, F. et al. Management of descemet's membrane rupture by intracameral injection of SF6 in acute hydrops. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.10, pp.533-536. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: Hydrops occurring in the eye secondary to keratoconus, grade 4. It was managed by sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas injected into the anterior chamber, with an early resolution of corneal edema obtained. Discussion: Intervention with intracameral SF6 injection has proven to be a safe and effective therapy for early reduction of corneal edema in an eye with Descemet's membrane detachment and acute hydrops.
