Clinical Practice in Small Incision Cataract Surgery

Product Description
Cataract is currently the main cause of avoidable blindness in the developing world and accounts for about 75% of cases worldwide. Small incision manual techniques for cataract surgery, as described in this book, should be in the armamentarium of every cataract surgeon, whether it be in the United States or less affluent countries. Phacoemulsification has become the primary method of performing extracapsular cataract surgery, yet it is not always appropriate either from a cost perspective or the density of the cataracts involved. Small incision manual extracapsular techniques, the first choice alternative to phacoemulsification, give visual results equivalent to phacoemulsification at lower cost. Surgeons using this technique regardless of what the latest technology to appear is, are performing state-of-the-art surgery for their patients. Fifty-seven chapters cover all aspects of small incision cataract surgery from lens anatomy to various operative techniques, complications, management and recent advances. It is the first alternative choice to phacoemulsification. Also included are two CD-ROMs to accompany the book.
