Lavishly illustrated and clinically relevant, Orbital Tumors: Diagnosis and treatment presents a single-volume reference for orbital pathology in daily practice. Chapters written by leading practitioners in ophthalmology, obitology, radiology, pathology, neurosurgery, medical and radation oncology, and plastic surgery provide a range and depth of expertise unavailable elsewhere.
In order to provide the most recent developments in the science of orbitology, Orbital Tumors explores the latest developments in medical genetics, molecular genetics, and immunosurveillance mechanisms of neoplasia. The occurrence of multiple, malignant neoplasms in retinoblastoma have been included to apply molecular concepts to clinical practice related to orbital tumors.
In the realm of clinical practice for orbital pathology, no development has been more influential than the revolution in imaging techniques, including ultrasonography, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance methods. The implications of these improvements in diagnostic capabilities are fully explored and explained in Orbital Tumors. The text also includes diagnostic advances in immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, gene microarray, and the polymerase chain reaction. These are summarized in a separate chapter on orbital biopsy.
Orbital Tumors also includes current staging of malignant orbital tumors, advances and techniques in surgical treatments, radiation advances and options, and the most recent chemotherapeutic therapies for both pediatric and adult tumors.
Orbital Tumors will become and indispensible tool not only for general ophthalmologists, but also for oculoplastic surgeons and orbitologists in their daily practice. The book has further reach as a reference for pediatricians, radiologists, pathologists, neurosurgeons, and otolaryngologists who deal with orbital tumors.
Written for: Ophthalmologists, ophthalmolgy residents, neuro-surgeons, neuro-radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, otolaryngologists
"The book is finalized by an excellent overview of the current surgical and radiological management techniques, as well as recent developments in chemotherapy. … It is a pleasure to read this comprehensive work as it is most educative for everyone dealing with orbital pathology from a clinical as well as from a scientific point of view. It certainly will have its place in every eye center, even those not directly involved in the treatment of orbital diseases." (Rudolf F. Guthoff, Ophthalmologica, Vol. 221 (5), 2007)
"The book is … multi-authored which allows for a spread of knowledge across a wide field of relatively rare conditions. … In summary, Orbital Tumors by Karcioglu is a very well-written and nicely illustrated book. It covers the subject comprehensively, and is current and a most approachable textbook. It would be a very useful reference for the orbital specialist, of significant interest to the generalist and an ideal text for trainees. In my opinion, the book should be held by all eye department libraries." (Paul M Rosser, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 36, 2008)
