Eyelid Tumors: Clinical Diagnosis & Surgical Treatment / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
The early diagnosis and treatment of eyelid tumors is key to high-quality outcomes, but, unfortunately, the identification of many eyelid malignancies occurs late. Eyelid Tumors was written to be a complete how-to guide for medical professionals - how to recognize and diagnose eyelid tumors in the clinical setting, how to surgically remove eyelid malignancies, and how to reconstruct eyelids following surgery.
This superbly illustrated guidebook helps you recognize the difference between malignancies that require biopsy and/or surgical removal and tumors that can be treated medically. Updated with a key chapter on radiosurgery, the book also outlines the surgical anatomy of eyelids, and describes those techniques for tumor removal and lid reconstruction that the author has found most successful in 30 years of hands-on experience.
Key features of the revised and updated second edition:
- Nearly 300 exquisitely clear, full-color clinical photographs and histologic images - twice as many as the first edition
- New chapters on radiosurgery and microscopic pathology, essential for safe tissue dissection
- The author's expert insights on the most effective techniques and procedures for eyelid surgery and reconstruction
- Clear, concise format for quick access to information
Eyelid malignancies are relatively common in most parts of the world, and having the most current and accurate information is important for early and effective treatment and long-term care. Combining clear clinical photographs with concise and straightforward surgical descriptions, Eyelid Tumors is a practical reference source that all ophthalmic clinicians and surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, dermatologists, and pathologists will value.
In particular, [this book] would be a great help to the residents in radiology preparing for the board, by refreshing theirknowledge, case by case. --Clinical Imaging
