endothelial keratoplasty mastering dsek dmek and pdek

41ev-ehwefl.by amar agarwal and terry kim

description

state-of-the-art book provides hands-on guidance on the latest endothelial keratoplasty techniques

a significant number of eye disorders result from deficiencies in the endothelial layer of the cornea. endothelial keratoplasty (ek) helps spare patients from months of refractive adjustments, lengthy recovery, complications, and poor outcomes associated with full-thickness penetrating keratoplasty. this newer methodology is based on more selective transplantation of cells and is less invasive, resulting in quicker recovery and more efficacious outcomes.

contributors are world-renowned pioneers who are front and center in implementing innovative, sight-restoring techniques that continue to change the ophthalmic surgery landscape. in the first section, a solid foundation is laid with discussion of anatomy, the history of ek, clinical aspects of endothelial cell dysfunction, and clinico-pathology. subsequent sections cover surgical procedures, special topics, surgical outcomes, complications, and future trends. readers will gain invaluable insights from clinical pearls throughout the book, gleaned from hands-on experience by leading experts in the field of ocular surgery.

key features:

  • a large compendium of high-quality videos demonstrate cutting-edge approaches
  • richly illustrated with 400 images that further delineate anatomy and techniques
  • anterior segment surgery advances including descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (dsek), predescemet’s endothelial keratoplasty (pdek), ultrathin dsek, descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (dmek), and trocar anterior chamber maintainer
  • treatment of conditions such as pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and fuchs’ dystrophy
  • management of complicated cases including glued iol, cataract extraction & iol implantation, glaucoma, failed grafts, and scarred corneas

this book is a stellar resource on the surgical management of patients with corneal disease. it will benefit both trainees and practicing ophthalmologists – and is a must-have for specialists who perform corneal surgery.

keratoconus recent advances in diagnosis and treatment

jorge l. alió

description

as a degenerative disorder of the eye, keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, with multiple images, streaking, and sensitivity to light all reported by patients. keratoconus: recent advances in diagnosis and treatment updates ophthalmologists about the innovations that have occurred within the last decade, discussing the diagnostic imaging techniques that have been developed for keratoconus diagnosis, understanding of how examination techniques are related to the evolution of keratoconus, and how to indicate the different therapeutic tools that have been created for keratoconus over the last several years. additionally, fundamentals for new diagnostic elements, based on the mathematical, physical and biomechanical data are analyzed in depth for a better understanding of the essential diagnostic steps for the clinician to guide patients towards the most adequate therapeutic tool in the case. modern keratoplasty techniques, assisted by femtosecond lasers or other devices, are also covered and these techniques, along with the emerging conservative treatments, have added to more precise control of the evolution of the disease.show more

corneal transplantation

hjortdal, jesper (ed.)

this textbook reviews the novel techniques employed in corneal transplantation. it will assist fellows and corneal surgeons in using these techniques to best effect and in selecting patients for surgical procedures, taking into account the benefits and risks. until 15 years ago the state-of-the art type of corneal transplantation was penetrating keratoplasty. since the start of this millennium, however, important advances have been made in developing new surgical techniques. today, the vast majority of keratoplasty procedures are performed as delicate lamellar procedures, either with the assistance of fine microkeratomes or femtosecond lasers or using very advanced surgical dissection procedures. corneal transplantation provides detailed information on these and other advances, which have helped patients undergoing keratoplasty to achieve a much faster visual recovery and a more stable eye with less risk of rejection episodes.

lacrimal drainage surgery

author: isloor suresh d

this book, lacrimal drainage surgery, deals with drainage surgery. tearing disorders are among the most common dilemmas that ophthalmologists encounter. restoration of lacrimal system patency involves surgical techniques that are challenging to master and frequently have unpredictable results. the close relation between eyes and nose demands an interdisciplinary approach. ophthalmologists and rhinologists work together in the treatment of lacrimal drainage system to produce the best results. interdisciplinary cooperation between ophthalmologists and rhinologists has advanced the present day treatment of lacrimal disorders. there is no single method for the lacrimal drainage surgery. there are different approaches for the surgical management of nasolacrimal disorders. lacrimal drainage surgery can be a problem to many eye surgeons. the chapters on anatomy, osteology and physiology of lacrimation are dealt with in a very precise manner. diagnostic tests are dealt with in detail and the various aspects of surgery are clearly described with the help of figures. the book has also dealt with recent concepts and advances including the use of laser in dacryocystorhinostomy. it will be useful both to the novice and to the experienced surgeon, who deals with dacryocystorhinostomy as also for the postgraduate student in updating his knowledge on the subject.

recurrent erosion syndrome and epithelial edema in vivo morphology in the human cornea

by helena m. tabery
this book presents high-magnification in vivo images of the morphology of recurrent corneal erosions and epithelial edema as captured by non-contact photomicrography. part i of the book, on recurrent erosion syndrome, displays images covering a broad spectrum of epithelial changes, including manifestations of the ongoing underlying pathological process and epithelial activity aimed at elimination of abnormal elements or repair. the dynamics of the interplay between these opposing forces are captured in sequential photographs that aid interpretation. part ii of the book demonstrates typical features of corneal epithelial edema and also covers the contemporaneous occurrence, and dynamics, of phenomena indistinguishable from those commonly seen in recurrent erosion syndrome. both parts include case reports illustrating typical features and documenting variability in symptoms and findings over time. the presented morphology will facilitate understanding of clinical appearances and assist in differential diagnosis.

principles and practice of lacrimal surgery

femtosecond laser assisted keratoplasty

author: alio jorge l, vega alfredo, soria felipe

the book aims to instruct the corneal surgeon in the ways in which femtosecond lasers can be used for corneal grafting surgery. they focus on the use of femtosecond laser technology in corneal surgery. the use of femtosecond lasers has improved the methods of making corneal grafting surgery a better and more controllable technique with better outcomes. this technology is applied to not only to corneal refractive surgery but also to other procedures, such as tunnel creation for intracorneal rings and segment implantations, pockets for intracorneal inlays and rings, astigmatic incisions and for cataract surgery incisions. they also discusses about how to use the different elements involved in the procedure such as artificial anterior chambers and how femtosecond laser technology is used in the cutting interfaces. this technology has the capability of controlling the cut and the profile with less potential surgical trauma, which will makes a perfect environment for an adequately precise donor-recipient size matc
