New York/Stuttgart – Disorders of the anterior segment are a leading cause of ocular morbidity. As a result of structural abnormalities associated with trauma, degeneration, developmental disorders, or iatrogenic causes, reconstruction is required. Significant breakthroughs have been made in anterior segment reconstructive approaches, including the use of stem cells, selective tissue transplant, glued lenses, and advanced suturing techniques. Video Atlas of Anterior Segment Repair and Reconstruction: Managing Challenges in Cornea, Glaucoma, and Lens Surgery by renowned ophthalmic surgery pioneers Amar Agarwal, Priya Narang, and international contributors is the most comprehensive resource available to date on anterior segment surgery, reflecting cutting-edge innovations.
Five sections and 27 chapters organized by ocular anatomy provide in-depth coverage on reconstructive techniques of the cornea, iris, aqueous drainage, and lens. The book and videos describe and highlight diverse state-of-the-art anterior segment surgery procedures, including limbal cell transplantation, keratoplasty, pupilloplasty, and intraocular lens implantation in deficient capsules. Clinical pearls throughout the concise text provide invaluable insights on surgical nuances and managing potential complications.
