Written by an expert in the field, this book is a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the evaluation and management of lacrimal drainage disorders. Lacrimal disorders are one of the most common conditions encountered not only by oculoplastic surgeons and general ophthalmologists, but also by otorhinolaryngologists in their daily practice. Consisting of 77 chapters, it addresses the basic anatomy and underlying pathology, patient evaluation, and the surgical procedures currently performed in managing various lacrimal disorders. Surgical modalities including the endoscopic approaches are thoroughly and succinctly captured in pictures with detailed legends to aid understanding and offer a visual treat. Since familiarity with a surgical technique is incomplete without the knowledge of risk factors and red flags, the book discusses in detail how to deal with surgical complications and failure.
The Atlas of Lacrimal Drainage Disorders is an essential companion to the author's previous work "Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery"..
Mohammad Javed Ali completed his basic medical education and ophthalmology training at NTR University of Health Sciences, Hyderabad. He obtained his fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners (FRCGP), UK in 2003 and fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (FRCS) in 2008. He also completed his fellowship in Orbital Surgery in 2008, followed by a second fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, Ocular Oncology and Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery in 2010. He later trained in rhinology with world leader Peter-John Wormald from Australia. Javed is one of the rare recipients of The Experienced Researcher - Senior Alexander Von Humboldt Fellowship Award, a pinnacle award in the research world. He is also a recipient of the Dr P Siva Reddy Gold Medal in Ophthalmology, Dr Pathak Medal in Ophthalmology, Mazher Foundation Award for outstanding academic performance, Vengal Rao Medal, Raghavachary medal, Ranga Reddy Endowment award, Honavar award and Sunayna Medal. He has described 2 new diseases of the lacrimal system along with their classifications and clinicopathologic profiles. He was honored with the "Healthcare Leadership Award 2012' for his research and innovations in dacryology and also received the 2015 ASOPRS Merrill Reeh Award for his groundbreaking work on the etiopathogenesis of punctal stenosis. His textbook "Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery" is considered to be the most comprehensive treatise on the subject. He is a section editor for 7 journals and reviewer for over 30 major journals. His areas of research include the molecular pathogenesis of NLDO, stem cells and minimally invasive lacrimal surgeries.
