Description détaillée : Endothelial Keratoplasty

Endothelial keratoplasty (EK) helps spare patients from months of refractive adjustments, lengthy recovery, complications, and poor outcomes associated with full-thickness penetrating keratoplasty.

This newer methodology is based on more selective transplantation of cells and is less invasive, resulting in quicker recovery and more efficacious outcomes.

Contributors are world-renowned pioneers who are front and center in implementing innovative, sight-restoring techniques that continue to change the ophthalmic surgery landscape.

In the first section, a solid foundation is laid with discussion of anatomy, the history of EK, clinical aspects of endothelial cell dysfunction, and clinico-pathology. Subsequent sections cover surgical procedures, special topics, surgical outcomes, complications, and future trends.

Readers will gain invaluable insights from clinical pearls throughout the book, gleaned from hands-on experience by leading experts in the field of ocular surgery.

Key Features:

  • A large compendium of high-quality videos demonstrate cutting-edge approaches
  • Richly illustrated with 400 images that further delineate anatomy and techniques
  • Anterior segment surgery advances including Descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK), predescemet's endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK), ultrathin DSEK, Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), and trocar anterior chamber maintainer
  • Treatment of conditions such as pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and Fuchs' dystrophy
  • Management of complicated cases including glued IOL, cataract extraction & IOL implantation, glaucoma, failed grafts, and scarred corneas
This book is a stellar resource on the surgical management of patients with corneal disease. It will benefit both trainees and practicing ophthalmologists - and is a must-have for specialists who perform corneal surgery.
