Edited and written by internationally well-known experts, this state-of-the-art comprehensive overview of basic and clinical science will enhance the understanding of retinal vascular disease and help in the evaluation of current and future treatment approaches for the clinician. The well-structured and highly illustrated text is divided into the following three main sections:
Pathogenesis of retinal vascular disease
General concepts in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal vascular disease
Pathology, clinical course and treatment of retinal vascular disease
Reader-friendly through:
Step-by-step explanation of all treatment procedures
Richly illustrated by clinical image series including illustrated single case follow-up

Reviews

From the reviews:

"In this well-organized textbook, the authors start with a detailed review of the current basic science of retinal vessel development and pathology. … This is especially useful for the busy practitioner. … This is a book for ophthalmologists and non-ophthalmologists alike. … Retinal Vascular Disease offers information to readers who do not have training in ophthalmology but are curious about a particular patient or condition. … This text is as up to date as possible in both its clinical and its basic science reviews." (William V. Good, New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 358, April, 2008)

"This book on retinal disease is a welcome addition to the compendium of ophthalmic textbooks. … the book to be useful for retina specialists, ophthalmologists, and doctors in training. The subject of angiogenesis is pertinent to all ophthalmic practitioners, both practicing and in training. … Overall, this is a nice book written by many excellent authors. … useful for clinicians and clinicians in training." (Daniel V Will, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2008)

"This is a superb book, superb in its construction, presentation and quality of production. In addition, it is timely. … Overall this is an excellent text, and will form the basis of a solid reference text for interested clinicians and clinical scientists. I thoroughly recommend it." (John Forrester, Graefes Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 247, 2009)

"It is produced delightfully, with a huge number of color illustrations incorporated into the text, and tastefully shaded abstracts with highlighted paragraphs of essential summaries. … this book is an information-mine for present and future investigators, when preparing their own manuscripts and the reviewer is certain that he will frequently haul it down from his shelf. … This is a very knowledgeable book." (Geoffrey Arden, Documenta Ophthalmologica, Vol. 117, 2008)
