Retina Atlas: A Global Perspective

by Sandeep Saxena, RC Saxena

Retina Atlas, presenting a truly global perspective of retinal diseases for the first time. Each chapter comprises of an overview of the disease and management and numerous images. Various figures in the atlas have been contributed from around the world, including: USA, Brazil, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Australia and New Zealand. Fundus photographs, fluorescein angiograms, indocyanine green angiograms, optical coherence tomography images, microperimetry, multifocal electroretinograms and B-scans have been presented together for the first time to give comprehensive knowledge about a particular retinal disease. Multiple figures of each disease are included to show the spectrum of a particular disease presentation. While the majority of the optical coherence tomography images are of the time-domain type, there are also a number of the newer spectral-domain high-resolution images of a several major diseases including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, choroidal neovascularization, myopia, central serous chorioretinopathy, venous occlusion, Best’s disease and rod-cone degeneration. The 3D optical coherence tomography figures have been presented in epiretinal membrane and macular hole cases. In addition to medical diseases, surgical disease cases are presented, including figures of the step-by-step surgical treatment of epiretinal membrane, macular hole, diabetic macular edema, retinal vein sheathotomy, radial optic neurotomy, and myopic foveoschisis; the latter included for the first time in a Retina Atlas. Several videos of spectral-domain high-resolution optical coherence tomography have been included, covering several macular diseases. Dr Saxena has compiled an extremely timely, thorough, and well integrated Retina Atlas, valuable to the active vitreoretinal specialist and also to the comprehensive ophthalmologist alike, both as a learning aid and as an exhaustive reference resource. Ophthalmology is one of the most technology driven disciplines of medicine. Rapid technological advances in the diagnosis and management of vitreoretinal disorders have had dramatic impacts. Evidence-based medicine is a reality today. Treatment modalities are now more innovative and more sharply focused on the causative mechanisms. Retina Atlas aims at updating knowledge of the reader on the current status of various vitreoretinal disorders. Medical and surgical diseases of the retina have been included. Fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, time-domain as well as spectral-domain high-resolution optical coherence tomography, microperimetry, electroretinography, and B-scan ultrasonography have been included together for the first time to provide wide-ranging knowledge about various diseases. An effort has been made to present a global perspective with over 100 contributors, of repute, from across the globe. The atlas contains 102 chapters featuring around 2300 images. Section 1 includes the basics of fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, scanning laser ophthalmoscope-based angiography, time-domain and spectral-domain high-resolution optical coherence tomography, microperimetry and multifocal electroretinography. Section 2 includes sections on retinal vascular disorders, macular disorders, vitreoretinal surgical disorders, inflammatory disorders, infectious disorders, traumatic disorders, hereditary chorioretinal disorders, tumors, optic nerve disorders, and various miscellaneous disorders. Each chapter includes an overview of the disease. Classification systems for various diseases have been included. Each photograph or set of photographs include an expressive legend. Diagnostic features of various diseases as well as the effect of various treatment modalities, including medical therapy, laser photocoagulation, photodynamic therapy, anti-VEGF therapies and vitreoretinal surgery have been shown in an extremely lucid manner. Step-by-step surgeries for epiretinal membrane, macular hole, diabetic macular edema, arteriovenous sheathotomy, radial optic neurotomy and myopic foveoschisis have been shown in the form of sequential images for the first time in an atlas. Fifteen videos of spectral-domain high-resolution optical coherence tomography of several macular diseases have also been included for the first time. The aim of this book is to provide a better understanding of vitreoretinal diseases. We are certain that this atlas will be useful to all postgraduate students, vitreoretinal specialists and practicing ophthalmologists.
