This book is essentially a text on the surgical management of glaucoma. It is the only book presently available that comprehensively covers all aspects of surgical management—namely, an appropriate decision-making process for introducing surgery into the management of glaucoma, a choice of the most suitable surgical procedure in individual cases of glaucoma, the preoperative preparation, anesthesia, surgical technique and postoperative care. The most effective and widely used operations are described in step-by-step detail, with excellent photographs and line drawings to illustrate the descriptions. This includes descriptions of trabeculectomy, subscleral Scheie, setons, laser glaucoma procedures, including holmium laser sclerostomy and YAG laser cyclophotodestruction. The reader is not only guided into and through the surgical procedure, but is also carefully guided into the choice of appropriate surgical procedures for the glaucoma problem for which the surgery is being used to ameliorate. The text also describes in detail the indications and techniques for the use of antimetabolites for bleb enhancement, and the management of surgical complications.

Renowned experts present the latest knowledge in ... In this volume of Developments in Ophthalmology, a panel of renowned glaucoma surgeons reports its findings and the updated evidence-based literature data on indications, outcomes, pearls and pitfalls of techniques in which they all have an undisputable 'hands-on' everyday experience. The publication begins with chapters on conventional procedures, i.e. trabeculectomy (still the gold standard), deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device implantation explicitly focusing on postoperative management. The role of the ocular surface in glaucoma surgery and the issue of wound healing and its modulation through antimetabolites are further discussed. In the second part, the attention shifts to new techniques which still have a marginal role, but are promising for particular indications. In the last part, the greatest challenges of glaucoma surgery such as the surgical approach to angle closure, concomitant glaucoma and cataract as well as pediatric glaucoma are discussed in detail. Finally, the last chapter is dedicated to cyclodestructive techniques. This volume is recommended to glaucoma surgeons and glaucoma specialists seeking information on the best therapy for their patients, but also to general ophthalmologists who refer their patients for surgery or follow them up afterwards.

The first edition of this volume, published in 2012, has become an indispensable reference for clinicians, a fact that inspired the making of this 2nd edition. The book starts with a discussion of current achievements and limitations of the medical therapy of glaucoma. The focus is then placed on conventional glaucoma procedures such as trabeculectomy, deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device surgery. A chapter is dedicated to the postoperative management of filtering procedures. Further chapters review the role of the ocular surface and the issue of modulation of the scarring processes in glaucoma surgery. The second section covers some promising new devices and techniques. The final part addresses the surgical approaches to some specific clinical challenges: angle-closure glaucoma, concomitant cataract and glaucoma, pediatric glaucoma, and refractory glaucomas. This volume provides residents and general ophthalmologists with valuable new insights into the fascinating and sometimes complex aspects of glaucoma surgery. It will also assist glaucoma specialists when they review and validate therapeutic approaches with their patients.

Glaucoma affects millions of people worldwide and is the second leading cause of blindness. Major advances in innovative surgical techniques, collectively termed minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), have revolutionized the field. These groundbreaking ophthalmic surgery approaches are effective, are not bleb-dependent, and they result in fewer complications. Authored by a Who's Who of prominent experts in the MIGS movement, this book represents the most comprehensive book written to date on the subject. Leading glaucoma surgeons offer unique perspectives and experience gleaned from developing and mastering these state-of-the-art techniques. The first four sections discuss fundamental concepts of eye anatomy and structure, outflow implications, and aqueous production. The remaining sections cover the latest cutting-edge procedures elucidated through text descriptions and case studies, with the final two chapters offering insights into how to best incorporate MIGS into your practice and possibilities for combining MIGS procedures to expand the treatment algorithm for patients with more moderate to advanced disease. Meticulous, step-by-step drawings, photos, and surgical videos further delineate advanced MIGS techniques.

Glaucoma is a term used to describe many different eye diseases which gradually weaken and reduce vision, often without outward symptoms. Most forms of glaucoma are caused by a problem with drainage within the eye, and there are a number of different recognised types. Despite all our available medical advances, unfortunately as yet loss of vision from glaucoma is irreversible. In this book the editors have compiled 17 chapters on the most up to date glaucoma surgery worldwide, including laser treatment, implants and non-penetrative surgery. As the editors themselves say - "even though we still do not fully understand the mechanisms and genetic background to the conditions known as glaucoma, we are able to offer palliative and sometime curable therapies". Thus the book provides essential information to ophthalmic surgeons and practitioners who need to update and maintain their knowledge and skills when combating the multitude of glaucoma problems.
