Overview

In the ever-changing field of vitreo-retinal surgery, the factor that may best distinguish a great surgeon from a good one is the ability to avoid and manage complications. Within the pages of Complications of Vitreo-Retinal Surgery, readers will discover the practical information ophthalmic surgeons need to address a wide range of intra- and postoperative complications associated with vitreo-retinal surgery. The text addresses a broad range of complications, occurring in both established and emerging surgical techniques. Each potential complication is analyzed in detail, including information on pathogenesis and risk factors. Chapters are organized by potential complication, with each addressed by a single contributing author as if he/she is the surgeon on the case. While created specifically for vitreo-retinal surgeons, this book will provide useful information for other members of the surgical team as well as for general ophthalmologists, residents, and optometrists who see patients before and after vitreo-retinal procedures.

Description: This book describes the complications related to vitreoretinal surgery including pathogenesis, risk factors for occurrence, and pearls on how to prevent and treat these complications.
Purpose: The purpose is to give vitreoretinal surgeons the best advice on what to do to prevent and treat surgical complications encountered in daily practice.

Features: The book covers specific intraoperative and postoperative complications related to scleral buckling, pneumatic retinopexy, and 20-, 23-, and 25- gauge vitrectomy. It also reviews more general complications common to all of these procedures. Each complication is defined with a review of the pathogenesis and risk factors. Importantly, pearls on how to prevent and treat these complications are provided. The tables and illustrations are well presented.
Assessment: This well-written, thoughtfully prepared compilation of surgical complications encountered by vitreoretinal surgeons is presented in a practical and useful format. It will prove to be a useful aid to surgeons both in practice and in training.
