The book is based on Step by Step Vitrectomy. It covers all aspects of vitreoretinal surgery, from anatomy of the interior eye, the presurgery examination of the patient, complementary tests, passing through an exhaustive analysis of instrumentation and its different uses to the treatment of commonly-faced problems such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment with or without proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) & macular disease, new high-speed vitreotomes with duty cycles that provide good control of eye tissues & thus avoid retinal damage. Chapters on 27 gauge vitrectomy instruments, enzyme lysis or new products that are still under investigation or development, the new 23 and 25 gauge instruments and the new illumination systems that allow the surgeon to more safely work inside the ocular globe fulfilling the prerequisite of good vision needed for a good vitrectomy are also given in the book. Sound knowledge of ultrasonography and optical coherence tomography, especially its prognostic use for macular problems; organization of the surgical area, theoretical aspects, the photographs & footage of surgery and update on vitrectomy for eye trauma dealing with new drugs such as antiangiogenic compounds, sustained-release agents & with current trends in enzymatic vitrectomy are very well defined.
