Written by a pioneering leader in the development of vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instruments, Vitreous Microsurgery is a comprehensive how-to guide to all vitreoretinal procedures. This thoroughly updated Fifth Edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. More than 170 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 has new chapters on the Constellation vitrectomy system, uveitis, retinal complications of permanent keratoprosthesis, and anti-VEGF therapy and completely rewritten chapters on anesthesia and on retinopathy of prematurity. All illustrations have been updated, the majority to a 25-gauge approach instead of 20-gauge, and many new illustrations have been added. Many techniques and parameters unique to 25-gauge sutureless vitrectomy are discussed in detail. A companion website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank.

The vitreous humour is a clear gel positioned behind the iris (coloured part) and the lens, and in front of the retina (back of the eye). Vitrectomy is the surgical removal of the vitreous humour, a procedure needed to allow ophthalmic surgeons to diagnose and treat underlying disease in the eye. This new edition provides a step by step guide to vitrectomy surgeries. Beginning with a description of the anatomy and physiology, the role of optical coherence tomography and anaesthesia, the following chapters discuss vitrectomy procedures for different ocular diseases and disorders. Written by a recognised Spanish author and editor team, the second edition includes new chapters, more than 350 full colour images and illustrations, and a DVD demonstrating vitrectomy surgery.

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.

Microincision Vitrectomy Surgery

Over the last two decades, tremendous progress has been made in vitrectomy surgery, most importantly the significant reduction of the gauge and implementation of microincision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS). At the same time, the introduction of wide-viewing systems and the utilization of vital dyes to better recognize structures like the vitreous and membranes have taken place. This volume starts with the fundamentals of MIVS, introducing both the mechanics and the physics of the latest generation of vitrectomy devices, followed by a description of the discrete gauge systems (i.e. 23-, 25-, and 27-gauge). Individualized but mandatory settings, techniques, and technology are also discussed in detail. There are also more than ten chapters outlining concrete surgical strategies that give surgeons a thorough overview of the procedures.

"This volume in the Surgical Techniques in Opthalmology series offers step-by-step authoritative guidance on how to successfully perform basic retina and vitreous surgery for retinal detachments and epiretinal membranes, as well as more involved procedures such as complex scleral buckle for ROP and vitrectomy surgery for PVR, ROP, and tumors. Best of all, a wealth of full-color illustrations and photographs, a concise format that complements the commentary, and the surgical procedures on the accompanying DVD-ROM show you exactly how to proceed." --Book Jacket.

Microsurgery of Retinal Detachment

From the foreword: "Microsurgery of Retinal Detachment is an important contribution to the practice of vitreoretinal surgery. In this comprehensive volume, Dr. Bonnet shares her extensive experience in the management of conditions ranging from retinal tears and primary retinal detachment to giant retinal breaks and vitreoretinal surgery. The field of microsurgery has continued to evolve over the last twenty years, both for the anterior segment surgeon and, since 1970, for the vitreoretinal surgeon. Although there have been extensive descriptions of vitrectomy techniques, little has been written about microsurgical techniques for scleral buckling operations. This subject is well covered in the present edition, which consequently will be a valuable resource to the majority of retinal surgeons who do not as a rule employ microsurgery in the repair of retinal detachments."

The vitreous body long has been the most mysterious of all ocular structures, owing perhaps to its seeming simplicity. There have been few concerted, sustained efforts to unravel the mysteries of how vitreous is composed and what role it plays in normal physiology as well as pathology. Over the years, however, many studies have produced important findings concerning vitreous biochemistry, structure, physiology, and pathobiology. Published on the 25th anniversary of Sebag's first book on Vitreous, this second installment is nearly five times longer than its predecessor, reflecting how much has been learned in the past quarter century. This well-constructed compendium not only addresses the most current scientific knowledge, but also reviews clinical perspectives in a manner that lends richness to the scope of the book. Written by 90 authors, this book has 56 chapters organized into 7 sections: Biochemistry; Anatomy, Development, and Aging; Pathology/Pathobiology; Physiology and Phamacotherapy; Posterior Vitreo-Retinal Surgery; Peripheral Vitreo-Retinal Surgery; and Pharmacologic Vitreolysis. With a foreword by Coleman & Lincoff and an introduction by Wallace Foulds, Sebag's latest tome on vitreous is destined to be the authoritative text for years to come.
