Step-by-step guide for advanced surgeons
The Video Atlas of Anterior Segment Repair and Reconstruction: Managing Challenges in Cornea, Glaucoma and Lens Surgery (Thieme), by Amar Agarwal and Priya Narang, stands out primarily for its detailed videos and photography of each intraoperative step required to perform complex procedures like DSAEK, keratoprosthesis implantation, pupilloplasty and intrascleral fixation of intraocular lenses.
Composed of five sections (reconstructing the cornea, iris, aqueous drainage, lens and ‘miscellaneous’), the book serves primarily as a textual explanation of what can be seen in the nearly 40 videos.
The procedures described are for the advanced surgeon with extensive experience in anterior segment surgery. As such, the book is intended for those surgeons who are looking to move to the next level or simply refine their technique.
