The innate immune system comprises the cells and mechanisms that are the first line of defence against infection by other organisms. This book provides a comprehensive synopsis of eye diseases, their immunological mechanisms and the role of the immune cells and mediators. Beginning with an introduction to the role of the innate immune system, the following chapters discuss the different types of immune cells in the eye and their role in the etiopathogenesis of various diseases including glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. Edited by Manfred Zierhut, recognised expert from the University of Tuebingen Germany, this book is presented in an easy to read format, enabling practitioners to understand even the most sophisticated eye disorders from an immunological perspective. Key points * Comprehensive synopsis of the role of the innate immune system in eye diseases * Covers different types of immune cells * Edited by internationally recognised specialist in Germany
There has been a recent explosion of interest in non-invasive optical diagnostic techniques that would provide images of high resolution for the measurement and diagnosis of ocular tissues. The Atlas and Text of Optical Coherence Tomography is at the forefront of this trend, covering the use of anterior and posterior OCT for diagnosing various disorders, identifying correct therapeutic approaches, and monitoring responses to therapies and interventions. A world recognized team of leading authors in this field provide their knowledge and expertise in fundus photographs, fluorescein angiography, OCT applications for diagnosis, management, and follow-up in anterior segment diseases, glaucoma, diabetic macular edema, macular hole, age-related macular degeneration, vitreofoveal traction, idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy, tumors and more. They also present modern methods of OCT for intraocular treatments, laser guidance, and quality control in the follow-up and research of patients. The Atlas and Text of Optical Coherence Tomography is published in English and Spanish and contains over 200 high quality, colored OCT images and photographs of both normal and diseased appearances, that will help you in the diagnosis assessments. It covered subjects such as: Chapter 1: Introduction to Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT); Chapter 2: OCT Scan Applications, Protocols and Procedures; Chapter 3: Application of Optical Coherence Tomography in Ophthalmology; Chapter 4: Optical Coherence Tomography for Exploring the Anterior Segment of the Eye; Chapter 5: Architecture of Clear Corneal Incisions Demonstrated by OCT; Chapter 6: Optical Coherence Tomography and Retinal Tomography in Glaucoma; Chapter 7: Optic Disc Evaluation with OCT; Chapter 8: Integration of OCT and Fluorescein Angiography in Retinal Diseases; Chapter 9: Optical Coherence Tomography for Intraocular Tumors; Chapter 10: Highlights of Optical Coherence Tomography for Evaluation of Choroidal Tumors; Chapter 11: OCT Benefits in the Diagnosis of Retinal Diseases; Chapter 12: Observations Comparing Conventional and 3D-OCT in the Evaluation of Retinal Disease; Chapter 13: OCT in Diabetic Retinopathy; Chapter 14: Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema: Application of the Optical Coherence Tomography; Chapter 15: Interpretation of OCT – Pearls in Macular Holes; Chapter 16: Indications and Applications of OCT in Cystoid Macular Edema; Chapter 17: Interpretation of OCT – Pearls in Age-Related Macular Degeneration; Chapter 18: Funduscopic Alterations in Myopic Patients- A Study of Findings from Clinical Examination and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT); Chapter 19: The Evolution of the Optical Coherence Tomography: Time Domain vs Spectral Domain OCT.
This is a timely, accurate, clinically relevant and extraordinarily well illustrated volume. It is a superb source of current clinical knowledge for the busy practicing ophthalmologists who are in the trenches caring for patients on a daily basis. Both medical and surgical topics are covered such as: cornea, external diseases, cataract surgery including the recently available femtosecond laser, lens implant surgery, glaucoma, retina and vitreous. The depth and breadth of the information presented is intended to bring the reader current with the newest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in our rapidly advancing field.
This book is a comprehensive, in-depth, and up-to-date resource on eye pathology that will be of great practical value for ophthalmic and general pathologists and ophthalmologists. Congenital abnormalities, inflammatory conditions, infections, injuries, degenerative diseases, and tumors are all covered with the aid of more than 700 images. In the case of tumors, the wide variety of neoplasms that occur in the eyelid, conjunctiva, retina, uveal tract, lacrimal gland and sac, orbit, and optic nerve are comprehensively reviewed, and the most recent knowledge on the relation between genetics and prognosis is presented. Entries on specific diseases are organized in a standard way, with information on etiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathological characteristics, differential diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis. The authors are all recognized experts and members of the European and American ophthalmic pathology societies.
Lacrimal disorders are one of the very common conditions encountered not only by the oculoplastic surgeons but also by the general ophthalmologists in their daily practice. Written by global experts in the field of dacyrology, this book is a comprehensive, updated practical guide on evaluation and management of patients with lacrimal diseases. This up-to-date reference work covers all aspects of the field including the basic anatomy and underlying pathology, evaluation of a patient, and all surgical procedures currently used in managing various disorders in an organized fashion. Surgical modalities including the endoscopic approaches are thoroughly and succinctly reviewed with ample illustrations for better understanding. Since familiarity with a surgical technique is incomplete without the knowledge of risk factors and red flags, an emphasis on dealing with surgical complications and failure has received priority in this treatise. Controversial topics and treatment dilemmas have been discussed in detail with the objective of reviewing the present consensus among the experts.
Multiple Choice Questions in Ophthalmic and Neuroanatomy was written from notes that made by the author while preparing for the College of Ophthalmologists’ primary examination. At the time it was difficult to gauge the standard expected as there were no questions available.
This book aims to help many candidates who need to learn this sort of anatomy and hopes that its appeal extends beyond budding ophthalmologists and general surgeons to include optometrists and orthoptists. The questions deal with the following topics: osteology; anatomy of the head and neck; vascular anatomy; neuroanatomy; orbital and autonomic anatomy; ocular adnexae and extraocular muscles; cranial nerves and visual pathway; ocular anatomy; and embryology.
