About this book

Ophthalmic microsurgery is applied in ophthalmic pathological conditions. Ophthalmic pathology sets the landmarks for all kinds of microsurgical manipulations. Thus, in order to ensure the best surgical outcome, ophthalmic clinicians and microsurgeons have to consider the critical structures and potential complications before they start with the surgical procedure.

Written by the world famous expert G. O. H. Naumann, this excellent textbook emphasizes the ocular structures such as the nuances of morphology, surgical anatomy, and pathology.

The content includes: Unique features of closed system intraocular surgery in closed system and open eye surgery.- Crucial aspects of restoring the anterior chamber, includes such as the role of blood-ocular barriers and effects of paracenthesis-effects. The spectrum of potential complications in (pseudo-) exfoliation- syndromes as well as the most vulnerable cell populations.- The features of normal and pathologic wound healing in the various tissues after non-mechanical laser and mechanical interventions emergency-pathology requiring prompt surgical intervention.

Brilliant artwork and sketches are further illustrating and summarizing the complex pathology. Thus, the reader will derive great value for the daily routine when learning how the specific pathology modifies the indications and techniques of microsurgery.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Applied Pathology for Ophthalmic Microsurgeons, conveys the basic concepts of microsurgical intervention in the management of various ophthalmic disorders … . The highlight of the book is its documentation of the concepts. … At the end of the book is a listing of figures with brief legends. This unique feature is highly useful for quick reference to the clinical and histologic features of ophthalmic diseases. Ophthalmic microsurgeons, ophthalmic pathologists, and graduate students pursuing training in ophthalmology will benefit from reviewing these chapters … ." (Stephen Ryan, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 247, 2009)

"This text is truly unique among textbooks of ophthalmic pathology. … illustrations are of superb quality and provide significant value in explaining the discussions of normal and pathologic ocular anatomy. … provides an excellent addition to the ophthalmic literature. There is no other text that I am aware of that combines the disciplines of ocular anatomy, morphology, and histopathology in a focused discussion of ophthalmic microsurgery. … an invaluable resource to ophthalmic surgeons at all levels of surgical training and experience." (Jay Ira Perlman, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 302 (10), September, 2009)
