Mastering Corneal Collagen Cross-linking Techniques


Corneal Collagen Cross-linking with Riboflavin and UV-A (C3-R) treatment is certainly a new and promising
development in refractive surgery in recent times. The weakened cornea in form of Keratoconus or Post-Lasik/PRK Corneal Ectasia (Keratoectasia) is one of the most challenging task for Ophthalmologists. Reduced corneal mechanical stability in Keratoconus and Corneal Ectasia can be treated by Photo-oxidative cross-linking of the
Corneal Collagen. To achieve high absorption of irradiation energy in the cornea, Riboflavin at a concentration
of 0.1% and UV-A light at a wavelength of 370 nm corresponding to the relative maximum of absorption of Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is used. Therapeutic C3-R cross-linking procedure causes decrease in corneal curvature
of about 2D which leads not only to stabilization but also to an increase in visual acuity and more compact and stronger corneas.
This book has been written with the aim of providing complete insight into this new technique for the
benefit of refractive surgeons worldwide. Its 23 chapters have been written by International Experts of this
technique and they cover all aspects of C3-R technique in a comprehensive manner. It deals with all steps
mainly indications, contraindications, various surgical procedures, complications and their management. Video
DVD given with this book shows the surgical steps of C3-R treatment by International Masters beautifully.
Our sincere gratitude to publisher Shri Jitendar P Vij (CEO), M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publisher Pvt. Ltd. (India), Mr Tarun Duneja (Director– Publishing) and all staff members who took active interest and done hard work in timely preparation of this book, first of its kind in the world. C3-R treatment alone or combined with INTACS provide real hope for patients with progressive Keratoconus and Keratoectasia. We expect this book shall provide the complete information on C3-R procedures to refractive surgeons who are interested to master this technique for the benefits of patients.

Age-related Macular Degeneration 2nd

Frank G. Holz (Editor), Daniel Pauleikhoff (Editor), Richard F. Spaide (Editor), Alan C. Bird (Editor)

Book Description
Publication Date: October 22, 2012 | ISBN-10: 3642221068 | ISBN-13: 978-3642221064 | Edition: 2nd ed. 2013
Age-related macular degeneration is the most common cause for the loss of central vision beyond the age of 50 in industrial nations. Triplication of the number of affected patients is expected over the next 25 years. Especially over the last years the standard of knowledge regarding etiology, risk factors, diagnostics and therapy of this retina illness has substantially grown – this will be covered in this up-to-date multi-authored work. Apart from epidemiologically and genetically identified risk factors both the various pathophysiological aspects including the role of the complement system and clinical manifestations including OCT and angiographic characteristics are clearly represented. Furthermore, the different therapeutic approaches are presented and discussed, including proven procedures such as intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy and seeing-aid systems, in addition to the latest and upcoming methods in the area of pharmacology. The volume is well-illustrated and tables and summaries complete the presentation.
