Pterygium: A Practical Guide to Management

by Alfred L Anduze

Pterygium: A Practical Guide to Management presents a practical approach to the use and analysis of techniques involved in the clinical care of specific pterygium cases, which range from routine, classical to unusual, complicated. The text gives background and causal history and divulges reasons for using various methods of management, including indications and innovations for particular cases. Basic pathophysiology is identified in relation to patient types and its influence on the outcomes is highlighted. The book introduces a rarely discussed chapter on preventive measures and emphasizes the importance of primary surgery in reducing the incidence of recurrences, the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis and features an extensive discussion on the repair of complications. It is a comprehensive guide that is applicable to daily encountered cases in a clinical setting. The medical and surgical management of pterygium is presented in a step by step approach which is easy to follow and adopt. Discussions of practical situations with pre-operative treatments, intra-operative techniques and post-operative care are detailed. The book is intended for a target audience of ophthalmology residents, ophthalmic assistants and technicians, practicing ophthalmologists and research fellows.
