Book Description

It is imperative that ophthalmologists, residents, surgeons, and fellows who work with pediatric cataracts and their surgical management have access to Pediatric Cataract Surgery and IOL Implantation: A Case-Based Guide; (ePub/PDF). Additionally, ancillary readers, such as supportive caregivers or parents of a child with cataracts, should also have access to this resource.

This ebook provides a comprehensive summary of the epidemiology of cataract surgery in pediatric patients as well as considerations surrounding the implantation of IOLs. This article discusses pre-operative evaluation and examination, as well as surgical steps and techniques for treating a wide variety of pediatric cataract conditions. Each chapter begins with an introduction, then continues with discussions that provide expert viewpoints and case studies, and finally concludes with a conclusion. In addition, chapters illustrate the complexity of the various approaches to the management of pediatric lens opacities. The final section of the ebook takes a case-based approach to special considerations in IOL implantation. These considerations include concerns in the uveitic patient, placement without capsular support, and cataract surgery in developing countries. This ebook is a valuable addition to any other text that addresses pediatric cataracts because it contains chapters that have been given careful consideration and that seek to expand on the literature that is already available without repeating itself.

NOTE: This product only comes with the ePub version of the ebook, which is titled Pediatric Cataract Surgery and IOL Implantation: A Case Based Guide. A converted PDF is available on request. There are no access codes contained within.
