“Retinal detachment has always been a dramatic and terrifying experience for the patient and a source of frustration for the surgeon,” writes Relja Zivojnovic in this book’s foreword.
Retinal Detachment Surgery and Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy (PVR): From Scleral Buckling to Small Gauge Vitrectomy (Springer), edited by Ulrich Spandau, Zoran Tomic and Diego Ruiz-Casas, tackles this pathology systematically.
Starting with an introduction to PVR, preoperative assessment and surgical technique, the book then progresses to “Special & Advanced Cases” and postoperative care. For Part VI, the editors received input from VR surgeons around the world regarding how they would tackle specific challenging cases.
This 400-page handbook, intended for VR surgeons and fellows, finishes with video cases.
