Macular Edema: A Practical Approach

Macular Edema: A Practical Approach (Developments in Ophthalmology)
By G. Coscas, J. Cunha-vaz, A. Loewenstein, G. Soubrane

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51d2WYtRRyL.jpg

Product Description:
For many years, diagnosing macular edema at an early stage has been a main difficulty. Recently, multiple and remarkable advances of modern imaging technologies which allow recognition of the main etiologies, have immensely improved its diagnosis and treatment. In this volume, different patterns and etiologies of macular edema are described and the importance of preserving the photoreceptors at an early stage in order to retain center visual acuity is discussed. It brings together the most recent data and evidence-based medicine, and, on the other hand, the pathophysiological basis of macular edema and the different approaches for drug delivery to the posterior segment are presented. Recommendations for treatment procedures or different therapies have been carefully analyzed and considered prior to inclusion. “Macular Edema – A Practical Approach” provides the ophthalmologist with a synthesis of knowledge to diagnose, to determine etiology, and to offer the patient viable treatment options for his benefit.

Anti-VEGF

Anti-VEGF (Developments in Ophthalmology)
By F. Bandello, M. Battaglia Parodi, A. J. Augustin, P. Iacono, R. O. Schlingemann

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41DZfx4XK2L..jpg

Product Description:
The development of therapy with anti-angiogenics or vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors (anti-VEGF) has marked the beginning of a new era in neovascularization and macular edema treatment. Its main goals are the inhibition of growth and development of new vessels along with the reduction of vascular permeability. The advantages over conventional laser photocoagulation are evident as laser treatment always leaves scars and causes a retinal sensitivity deterioration. Starting with an outline of treatment principles, this volume covers all aspects of anti-VEGF therapy for ophthalmological disorders. In particular, specific chapters are dedicated to age-related macular degeneration, degenerative myopia, angioid streaks, inflammatory diseases, hereditary dystrophies, retinal vein occlusion, diabetic retinopathy, ocular tumors, as well as anterior segment neovascularization. The book gives an update on the application of anti-VEGF in ocular diseases to general ophthalmologists as well as retina specialists.
