Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon P. Gieser, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book summarizes the recent, dramatic advances in diagnosis and treatment of vitreoretinal diseases, both medical and surgical.
Purpose: The authors intend their book to serve as a forum for dissemination of new techniques and advances in medical and surgical retina. They have not attempted to compile an exhaustive reference textbook. Rather, they have created in textbook form a summary of recent literature, especially in more controversial areas. The book accomplishes its stated goals.
Audience: This book is written for vitreoretinal surgeons and is not intended for ophthalmologists who have only a passing interest in complex vitreoretinal diseases. The contributors are generally quite credible in the field and include some of the most respected names in ophthalmology.
Features: The book is well organized and is conveniently divided into sections based on general disease categories such as giant retinal tears, age-related macular degeneration, etc. Each section is subdivided into chapters covering various aspects of diagnosis and management for a given vitreoretinal disease. The book is very attractive, well written, and accompanied by excellent black-and-white drawings, illustrating clearly techniques and ideas described in the text. The illustrations contribute significantly to the value of the book. The book is especially strong in the surgical management of vitreoretinal diseases, but concentrates less on medical aspects. One admirable feature of the book is its willingness to address controversial topics, leaving the reader to draw his or her own conclusions. The references are complete, detailed, and current.
Assessment: This book is an excellent summary of many of the more challenging aspects of vitreoretinal diseases in terms of diagnosis and management. It is especially strong in dealing with surgical issues, offering both theoretical considerations and practical methods and techniques. This book will be of considerable interest to all ophthalmologists who deal with medical and surgical vitreoretinal diseases, and it should be a welcome addition to any library.
