Summary "This information-packed volume is the ultimate guide for today's vitreo-retinal surgeon. Experts in the field of retinal and vitreous surgery describe surgical techniques of the four primary procedures in use at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The advantages and disadvantages of each technique are assessed and compared in relation to case selection, single operation attachment, final attachment, complications, visual function, and cost effectiveness." "This work also shows how modern adjuvant pharmacotherapy is used to improve the surgical and functional outcome of these techniques. New imaging techniques such as ballistic light imaging and wide angle pseudo color SLO as well as anti-proliferative drugs are discussed and give an outlook for the future." "Ophthalmologists, fellows in retinal and vitreous surgery, and students and residents will find this book essential for diagnosing and repairing a primary retinal detachment."--Jacket.
