Overview

Vitreous Microsurgery / Edition 4

Written by a pioneering leader in the development of vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instruments, this volume is a comprehensive how-to guide to all vitreoretinal procedures. This thoroughly updated Fourth Edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. More than 160 three-dimensional full-color illustrations—many by the Charles Retina Institute's resident medical artist, Byron Wood—enable surgeons to clearly visualize the techniques.

This edition features a brand-new chapter on small diameter (25-gauge) sutureless transconjunctival vitrectomy, and presents state-of-the-art information on anti-VEGF therapy for age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and venous occlusive disease. Other highlights include new information on intravitreal Kenalog and new strategies for managing retinopathy of prematurity.
