Oculoplastic Surgery Atlas
Written by top oculoplastic surgeons in the field, including Frank A. Nesi, MD, this atlas combines an innovative educational technique: line drawings that correspond to videoclips on DVD. The text’s distinguished authors have perfected the most frequently performed oculoplastic surgical techniques. Their atlas series is designed to instruct all ophthalmologists who wish to learn these techniques and thus enhance their income. This volume covers the latest in cosmetic facial surgery techniques including endoscopic foreheadplasty, direct eyebrow lift, rhytidectomy surgery, mid-face lift and facial cosmetic Botox. Mastery of these procedures is made easier by following the step-by-step illustrations that are complemented by videoclips on DVD. The study of the supporting anatomy, followed by clear cut guidelines with heavily illustrated techniques, offers a format which will allow the learner to gain the necessary understanding for achieving a more favorable result.
KEY TOPICS IN OPHTHALMOLOGY (Key Topics Series (BIOS))
Now completely revised with many new topics, Key Topics in Ophthalmology, second edition provides up-to-date coverage of key issues. The systematic format makes this book an ideal revision aid for trainees taking the postgraduate examinations in ophthalmology, as well as being a valuable reference source for qualified ophthalmologists, GPs and opticians.
From the reviews:
“This book is an attractive, succinct, useful and readily accessible reference for clinicians who need to refer patients for clinical visual electrophysiology and for visual electrophysiologists who provide the testing services. It provides rapid and easily accessible descriptions of the major retinal diseases and specifies the information needed for their differential diagnosis. … The style is clear and concise and the layout uncramped. … This very personal work will encourage other clinics to use more visual electrophysiology and incorporate methods Miyake has developed.” (Vaegan, Documenta Ophthalmologica, Vol. 113, 2006)
This groundbreaking work presents techniques of electrodiagnosis and developments in electrophysiology in relation to other ocular findings as the author summarizes his extensive experience and knowledge of visual electrophysiological testing, the most definitive objective test of macular function. This book is the first to combine retinal physiology, morphology, and vitreoretinal surgery, and includes new findings in normal-macula physiology, newly discovered pathophysiological mechanisms of known diseases, and new clinical entities with unique functional properties. Also described is the correlation of macular function and macular morphology using focal macular electroretinography and optical coherence tomography obtained in surgery. This valuable resource enables researchers and clinicians to better understand the principles and methods of current techniques of visual electrophysiology and the pathophysiology of retinal diseases.
Survival rates in cases of uveal melanoma and retinoblastoma – the leading intraocular malignancies in adults and children – may be high, but means of earlier diagnosis and improved treatment options are needed to preserve vision and prevent metastasis. This reference deals principally with the molecular biology and genetic factors which trigger and promote the two most common ocular tumours.
