Cataract Surgery In Complicated Cases / Edition 1

Cataract Surgery in Complicated Cases by Lucio Buratto, Robert H. Osher, and Samuel Masket is a text that every cataract surgeon needs. It is widely known that cases of "normal" cataracts are decreasing, while incidences of "difficult" cases are increasing greatly. This trend negates the standard approach to cataract surgery and requires a more thorough examination of practical and innovative surgical options. This book was designed to provide extensive coverage of all of these options. Complicated cases require additional preparation, and this book aims to provide surgeons with all of the information necessary to treat these difficult cases. Through personal techniques provided by more than 50 expert international surgeons, this extensive resource provides coverage of the necessary steps to employ when complex situations arise.

Cataract Surgery in Complicated Cases is essential to every surgeon, not only because of its comprehensive coverage of challenging cases, but also because of the authors' extensive knowledge of cataract surgery. This book will help the surgeon achieve extremely positive results by teaching safety and practical techniques. With over 600 photographs illustrating these complicated situations, the authors will take you step-by-step through each possible surgical approach.
