About this book

Written by experts in the fields of oculofacial plastic surgery and neuro-ophthalmology, Evaluation and Management of Blepharoptosis is an up-to-date, practical guide to the treatment of adults and children with ptosis. This comprehensive reference covers all aspects of blepharoptosis in an organized fashion. The book begins with evaluation of the patient to determine if true ptosis or pseudoptosis exists. The various categories of blepharoptosis are thoroughly and succinctly reviewed, along with suggested approaches to clinical management. Detailed descriptions of the various surgical techniques are replete with pearls provided by leading ptosis surgeons, along with advice regarding perioperative anesthesia and analgesia. Every surgeon should know how to handle the various surgical complications and surgical failure. Nevertheless, familiarity with surgical techniques is not enough. One must learn to identify risk factors and red flags that suggest a modified or conservative approach, or perhaps that surgery may be unwise. When surgery is unwarranted or unsuccessful, then one may consider nonsurgical therapeutic strategies. Regardless of treatment, the physician-patient relationship and detailed discussion with the patient prior to surgery regarding potential risks, complications, and realistic expectations impact patient satisfaction immeasurably. All of these issues are discussed in detail in this invaluable resource for the clinician.
