ISGS Textbook of Glaucoma Surgery

by Tanuj Dada, Tarek M Shaarawy, Shibal Bhartiya

This Book tackles specific issues that the comprehensive ophthalmologist, the ophthalmology trainee, and the dedicated glaucoma surgeon would surely find interesting. There are many new surgical procedures, most of which seem to reach the market without any true evidence on their basic utility or safety. This book tries to take a balanced stand, offering classification for the new surgeries in a way that would allow the practitioner’s ability to navigate and provide an overview of available literature to help the surgeon distinguish between science and science fiction, refine old and tested ways of glaucoma surgery, be it tubes, trabeculectomies or nonpenetrating surgeries. It is always paramount to deliberate on the basics, how to select a patient for surgery; how to prepare a patient; and which surgery to offer, newer procedures, devices, indications and contraindications are dealt with pictures, current positioning of these procedures against gold standard are explained.
