Pearls and Pitfalls in Cosmetic Oculoplastic Surgery

By Morris Hartstein, John Holds, Guy G. Massry

Product Description:

A “Clinical Pearl” is shorthand for that critical nugget of information that makes a procedure or a treatment option or therapeutic agent more effective, more efficient, and produces the best possible outcome. A pearl is essentially “off-label”. In surgical specialties, these pearls are even more important because knowing how to avoid complications is better for the patient and the physician. With this book, ophthalmologists and cosmetic surgeons can become more skilled and increase their numbers of successful outcomes.

Book Description

Publication Date: April 30, 2012 | ISBN-10: 3805599374 | ISBN-13: 978-3805599375 | Edition: 1

In this volume of Developments in Ophthalmology, a panel of renowned glaucoma surgeons reports its findings and the updated evidence-based literature data on indications, outcomes, pearls and pitfalls of techniques in which they all have an undisputable ‘hands-on’ everyday experience. The publication begins with chapters on conventional procedures, i.e. trabeculectomy (still the gold standard), deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device implantation explicitly focusing on postoperative management. The role of the ocular surface in glaucoma surgery and the issue of wound healing and its modulation through antimetabolites are further discussed. In the second part, the attention shifts to new techniques which still have a marginal role, but are promising for particular indications. In the last part, the greatest challenges of glaucoma surgery such as the surgical approach to angle closure, concomitant glaucoma and cataract as well as pediatric glaucoma are discussed in detail. Finally, the last chapter is dedicated to cyclodestructive techniques. This volume is recommended to glaucoma surgeons and glaucoma specialists seeking information on the best therapy for their patients, but also to general ophthalmologists who refer their patients for surgery or follow them up afterwards.

Ophthalmology and the Ageing Society (Essentials in Ophthalmology)

Ophthalmology and the Ageing Society (Essentials in Ophthalmology)
Hendrik P.N. Scholl (Editor), Robert W. Massof (Editor), Sheila West (Editor)


The ageing of the world’s population is one of the major achievements of modern society. By 2050, an estimated 2 billion people will be aged 60 years or over. However, ageing poses major challenges and this is especially true for the field of ophthalmology, given that the major eye diseases – age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataract – predominantly affect the elderly. The challenges facing ophthalmology in an ageing society have not previously been addressed in a comprehensive way, although there are common denominators of the various eye diseases that affect the elderly. This book provides such a comprehensive overview encompassing epidemiology, risk factors, current treatment and prophylaxis, disability, co-morbidity, and the impact on quality of life. World leaders in their respective fields provide state-of-the-art knowledge on the geriatric aspects of ophthalmology that will help to improve the management of this growing patient population.
