Our knowledge of trauma of anterior and posterior segments, and its related diseases, has significantly improved during the last years. But the scientific information usually available on their diagnosis and management is still limited. For this reason, we have invited the most prominent ophthalmic surgeons involved in the day-to-day management of ocular trauma to share their knowledge with you in this book.
This publication presents the most advanced information available on the management of trauma of the eyeball and its surrounding structures: the initial approach; classification and evaluation of ocular injuries and traumatic events of the anterior and posterior segments. It includes a full coverage of the most relevant information on the management of hyphema and blunt trauma, secondary complications to penetrating injuries, repair of corneal lacerations, surgical approach to intraocular foreign bodies, the modern management of ocular burns and methods of evaluation and management of orbital trauma. All major topics are fully illustrated.
Innovations in surgical techniques are often necessary, since refinements in technology and a better understanding of traumatisms and their optimal approach are allowing us to improve visual and aesthetic results in these cases.
