Dr. Hoyos’s Step by Step Lamellar Corneal Graft

by Jairo E Hoyos, Eduardo Arenas

The editors of this book, Arenas and Hoyos, are experienced corneal surgeons, well known writers and editors of scientific articles. They have seen the need for this publication and have undertaken the formidable task of putting together actual information about a variety of techniques and indications for partial lamellar keratoplasty, some so revolutionary that they are still unknown in some medical centers. To this effect, they have obtained the collaboration of a group of internationally known corneal surgeons to write specialized chapters. The numerous papers included in this book illustrate the multiple techniques and indications for this type of surgery at the present time. Some procedures were not even dreamed of a few years back, except in the minds of a few that were ahead of their time. The table of contents shows what pathologists call “sequence of events”; in this case, how a procedure has been gradually changed and perfected through the years with the help of new ideas and technical innovation. This review of the most recent lamellar keratoplasty techniques will be informative for the anterior segment surgeon.
