Corneal Transplantation

by Rasik B Vajpayee, Namrata Sharma, Geoffrey C Tabin, Hugh R Taylor

This book has been designed as a practical guide to the various aspects of corneal grafting surgery. It elucidates the basic aspects in preoperative evaluation, investigations, established surgical procedures and the advanced techniques in special situations as well as the newer technology in corneal grafting. Theoretical as well as research aspects of corneal grafting have been dealt in a practical manner. An extensive and well-illustrated section provides up-to-date knowledge of complications in corneal transplantation and their management. This should be of particular assistance to ophthalmologists practicing in remote areas and involved in the postoperative care of the grafted patients. Corneal Transplantation Surgery has undergone tremendous advancements over the last few decades. Innovative minds have been contributing novel and original concepts in an ongoing pursuit, aimed towards achieving optimal long term success of this craft. There have been many significant and exciting developments in the technical aspects of corneal transplantation over recent years and these have been beautifully set out in the chapters that follow. With the large numbers of cases done around the world each year and the high success rate, corneal transplantation must be without doubt the most successful example of transplantation in the whole of medicine. Although exquisite surgical skill and attention to detail throughout the operation are extremely important in determining the successful outcome of corneal transplantation, they are only part of the story. One of the great strengths of this book is the wide range of experience and opinion that is presented here. This book does not give a simplistic cookbook recipe for the management of these sometimes complex and difficult cases, rather it gives the distilled experience of the world’s leaders in this field in which they outline their approach and their justification for the decisions they have taken. This book divided in to six parts such as: (i) Evolution, Preoperative Considerations and Eye Banking, (ii) Penetrating Keratoplasty, (iii) Penetrating Keratoplasty: Management of Complications, (iv) Lamellar Keratoplasty, (v) Specific Techniques in Keratoplasty, and (vi) Alternatives to Penetrating Keratoplasty.
