The progress of medicine and the surgery, Achieved through the use of innovative techniques can be deemed key elements in solving diseases that before had little opportunity to care. Examples of this technique molecular surgery introduced for the first time in Italy by Professor Aldo Caporossi University of Siena.
The technique is known cross-linking and signifies a significant opportunity for all who suffer Keratoconus, A disease which is one of the most normal causes leading to Corneal Transplant. With the emergence of this pathology are not the bonds that contain together the fibers forming the cornea. Through the use of innovative surgical technique the eye receives the stimulus to regenerate the lost links.
This is a treatment designed to change the structure of molecules. In essence, the cornea is treated with a fluid and then is subjected to the action of an ultraviolet laser. As a final result the disease undergoes a temporary suspension and eyesight are noticeably enhanced. The treatment is indicated particularly for children which are also those with the disease yet in a non-advanced.
Only in these cases, particularly when the cornea has a thickness of about 400 micrometers, might intervene in a well timed manner to save the eyesight and therefore the treatment of molecular surgery can be decisive. The intervention early detection is therefore necessary for a lower incidence of the disease.
