GLAUCOMA SURGERY (2ND EDITION)

This book is essentially a text on the surgical management of glaucoma. It is the only book presently available that comprehensively covers all aspects of surgical management—namely, an appropriate decision-making process for introducing surgery into the management of glaucoma, a choice of the most suitable surgical procedure in individual cases of glaucoma, the preoperative preparation, anesthesia, surgical technique and postoperative care. The most effective and widely used operations are described in step-by-step detail, with excellent photographs and line drawings to illustrate the descriptions. This includes descriptions of trabeculectomy, subscleral Scheie, setons, laser glaucoma procedures, including holmium laser sclerostomy and YAG laser cyclophotodestruction.The reader is not only guided into and through the surgical procedure, but is also carefully guided into the choice of appropriate surgical procedures for the glaucoma problem for which the surgery is being used to ameliorate. The text also describes in detail the indications and techniques for the use of antimetabolites for bleb enhancement, and the management of surgical complications.Contents: Congenital, Infantile and Juvenile Glaucoma:Emergence of a Disease EntityCongenital, Infantile and Juvenile (CIJ) GlaucomaClinical ManifestationsManagement of CIJ Glaucoma and the Prognosis for SurgeryAdult Onset Glaucomas:Preoperative Preparation and Anesthesia for Glaucoma SurgerySelection of Surgical ProcedureAngle Closure GlaucomaSurgery for Primary and Secondary Open Angle and Chronic Closed Angle GlaucomaGlaucoma and CataractManagement of Secondary GlaucomaAlloplastic Devices in Glaucoma Surgery: SetonsComplications Following Filtration Surgery and their ManagementLaser SurgeryReferencesIndexReadership: Ophthalmologists.Key Features:Covers political, economic and societal aspects of cross-Straits relations and policy adjustmentsExamines the institutional structure of decision-making across the Straits
