Vital Dyes in Vitreoretinal Surgery: Chromovitrectomy


Product Description
Chromovitrectomy is a novel approach to visualize the vitreous or retinal surface during vitreoretinal surgery. In recent years, the widely used indocyanine green (ICG) has made the surgical maneuver of inner limiting membrane peeling tremendously safer and efficient. Also, numerous dyes have been applied in experimental settings with promising or devastating results. This volume highlights the major clinical and experimental results of currently used novel vital dyes. The first chapters describe the transparent structure of the vitreous body and summarize historical considerations to visualize its structure by optical coherence tomography, dye injections or autologous cells during surgery and for diagnostic purposes.The following contributions describe the advantages and disadvantages of ICG during vitreoretinal surgery and experimental applications. Alternative approaches by recently approved vital dyes such as trypan blue, patent blue and brilliant blue are evaluated in the subsequent chapters. Finally the last few chapters give an outlook on novel vital dyes, which are currently under evaluation, as well as alternative enzymatic approaches to remove the vitreous from the retinal surface. Being a timely update this publication will be indispensable reading for vitreoretinal surgeons and ophthalmic researchers.

Diabetic Retinopathy (Contemporary Diabetes)


Review

From the reviews:

“This is an extremely comprehensive book covering the clinical features, pathophysiology, and treatment of one of the most significant causes of blindness in the world. … The book has wide appeal, to endocrinologists, general ophthalmologists, and most importantly to practicing retina specialists. … This book offers a balance between the clinical features and basic science aspects of diabetic retinopathy. It is a worthy addition to the collection of books covering this topic.” (Anton Orlin, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2009)

Product Description

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common microvascular complication of diabetes. It remains a major cause of new-onset visual loss in the United States and other industrialized nations. In Diabetic Retinopathy, Elia Duh and a panel of internationally recognized experts comprehensively assess the current state of knowledge regarding the clinical management of DR as well as its underlying mechanisms. The authors outline the current understanding of diabetic retinopathy from the perspective of clinical practice, while reviewing the multi-factorial pathogenesis and pathophysiology of DR from the standpoint of biomedical research. Also included is a discussion of emerging concepts relating to the management and treatment of DR. Informative and highly-practical, Diabetic Retinopathy provides ophthalmologists, diabetologists, endocrinologists, and internists with a highly readable guide not only to understanding diabetic retinopathy, but also to its optimal clinical management.

Surgical Anatomy Around the Orbit: The System of Zones



Review

Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 28-JAN-06 — “This book presents the author’s pertinent thoughts on facial anatomy, and its surgical relevance to facial plastic surgery, very well. Many find learning through diagrams and images easier than through text and this is well satisfied by the variety and number of illustrations. This book merits consideration for cosmetic facial plastic surgeons as an addition to a reference library.”

Product Description

This full-color surgical atlas provides a detailed, true-to-life view of periorbital anatomy as seen during an operative procedure. More than 130 photographs of fresh cadaver dissections and more than 100 vivid drawings by an award-winning ophthalmic artist enable surgeons to thoroughly preview this complex anatomy prior to surgery. Using his popular concept of facial zones, Dr. Zide depicts the fine anatomic details necessary for today’s advanced cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. A chapter on the seventh cranial nerve shows what tissue is innervated and delineates the exact zone of safety. A chapter on anatomy for facial nerve blocks is included. A bound-in CD-ROM contains the book’s 238 illustrations and extensive anatomic dissections.
