Springer; 2nd edition
This well-illustrated book provides the latest diagnostic concepts and management techniques in the quickly expanding subspecialty of pediatric oculofacial plastic surgery. Encompassing all aspects of the field and taking into account several surgical innovations and exciting novel medical treatment concepts that have arisen since the publication of the prior edition in 2002; Pediatric Oculoplastic Surgery; 2nd Edition; (PDF) will prove to be an important resource for both the comprehensive ophthalmologist and the subspecialist with a specific interest in pediatric disorders of the orbit; eyelids; and nasolacrimal system.
Topics discussed; together with clearly illustrated basic oculoplastic procedures; include surgical inventions ranging from the Sonopet system for safer removal of bone in lacrimal surgery to the development of complicated image guidance technology for sinus and orbital surgery. A comprehensive discussion of syndromic and non-syndromic congenital anomalies examines a variety of surgical techniques and the nuances of applying these methods in the management of various structural abnormalities. Further important progress includes new analytic laboratory techniques; which can explain the genetic basis of many pediatric oculoplastic disorders; various medical management advances like the role of beta-blockers in the treatment of orbital and facial hemangiomas; and the development of biologic pathway blockers inhibiting tumor growth which provide real potential for reducing the necessity of surgical intervention.
