About this book

This clinically oriented book provides a complete  overview of Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) Retinal  Detachment, a difficult surgical challenge faced by  ophthalmologists. Small gauge  vitrectomy offers new  possibilities to tackle this  difficult pathology however this surgical approach may  differ from one  retinal surgeon to the next. To reflect the various approaches to treating PVR, the book is divided up in  three parts. In the first part the authors describe the complete variety of surgical  techniques applied to PVR detachment. In the second section, well-known international  surgeons from Europe to Asia describe  their personal surgical approach for PVR detachment  and  demonstrate their surgery in videos. In the third part, a  large variety of retinal surgeons show case reports of PVR  retinal detachment to give a complete overview of dealing with this complex retinal disorder.
