Dr. Kreissig has spent a lifetime refining and teaching the minimalized approach to repairing retinal detachments. Get the benefit of her experience in an easily accessible, pocket-sized handbook that fits into your lab coat and is also ideal for bedside or office consultation. Volume 2 describes the "art of a minimal approach" by using the balloon or the gases or as reoperation, as treatment for various retinal detachments. The text is excellently illustrated, written in an easy-to-understand fashion and in a dialogue style. Important facts are highlighted in red boxes. The four rules to find the break in a reoperation are depicted on the back cover, thus easy to be looked up. The reader is taken step-by-step through each procedure for easy and more complex detachments. In separate chapters, extraocular and intraocular techniques for retinal reattachment are compared to reoperation. Ophthalmologists, fellows in retinal and vitreous surgery, students and residents will find this information-packed manual essential for diagnosing and repairing retinal detachments.
