ABSTRACT

To compare the corneal stromal demarcation line depth using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) after corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) using 2 different treatment protocols: the standard Dresden protocol (30 minutes with 3 mW/cm(2)) and a modified-accelerated protocol (14 minutes with 9 mW/cm(2)). Prospective, comparative study. Forty-three keratoconic patients (52 eyes) were enrolled. All patients underwent CXL using the same high-intensity ultraviolet-A (UV-A) irradiation device. Twenty-six eyes were treated for 30 minutes with 3 mW/cm(2) according to the standard Dresden protocol (Group 1), while 26 eyes were treated with a novel modified-accelerated CXL protocol for 14 minutes with 9 mW/cm(2) of UV-A irradiation intensity (Group 2). One month postoperatively, corneal stromal demarcation line depth was measured by 2 independent observers using AS-OCT. Corneal stromal demarcation line depth was assessed with no significant difference between observer measurements for both groups (P = .676 for Group 1 and P = .566 for Group 2). Mean corneal stromal demarcation line depth was 337.00 ± 46.46 μm for Group 1 and 322.91 ± 48.28 μm for Group 2. There was no statistically significant difference (P = .243) in the corneal stromal demarcation line depth between the 2 groups. Corneal stromal demarcation line depth using UV-A with 3 mW/cm(2) for 30 minutes and 9 mW/cm(2) for 14 minutes was similar. A modified-accelerated protocol of 14 minutes of CXL provided the same treatment depth as the classic Dresden protocol.
