Anatomy and Pathology of the Peripheral Fundus (fundus Extremus) : a Bequest of Professor Basil Daicker, Basel
Author: Peter Meyer,Karin U. Löffler
Publisher: Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers
This stereoscopic atlas is based on the slide collection of the late Professor B. Daicker, Basel, who was renowned for his merits in ophthalmopathology the world over. From the compilation of on the whole 12,000 stereoscopic slides of interesting and rare eye diseases, the editor selected 216 pairs to make them available to interested health professionals. These images can be viewed through stereo glasses (provided with the atlas) to obtain a stereoscopic depth perception. The atlas is divided into seven chapters. Each chapter starts with a short introduction, followed by the slides, which are complemented by a description of the disease and by additional images which can be found on the also included CD-ROM. The technical efforts made together with the carefully selected content make this atlas unique and indispensable. The stereoscopical visualization enhances the comprehension of eye disorders and makes it a much-welcomed tool for the differential diagnostic process.
Entscheidendes Anliegen dieses Standardwerkes ist die klinisch-pathologische Korrelation: Bereits klinisch sichtbare, strukturelle Veränderungen am Auge werden den entsprechenden mikroskopischen Schnitten in über 1000 Abbildungen und schematischen Skizzen gegenübergestellt. Außerdem wird die Differentialdiagnose definierter Befunde in 188 Tabellen erläutert. Nach einleitenden Kapiteln über die Anatomie und einer Übersicht des Untersuchungsmaterials in einem ophthalmologischen Labor folgen Kapitel über Mißbildungen, intraokulare Entzündungen, Folgen von Trauma und chirurgischen Eingriffen sowie Glaukome. Anschließend werden die einzelnen Gewebeabschnitte systematisch abgehandelt: Konjunktiva, Kornea, Uvea, Linse, Glaskörper, Retina, Optikus und kursorisch die okulären Adnexe. Die Voraussetzungen für die Leitstrukturen und Elemente des ophthalmoskopischen Bildes werden getrennt erörtert. Abschließend folgt eine Übersicht der morphologischen Augenveränderungen bei Allgemeinerkrankungen und als Therapie-Folge. 4500 Literaturstellen erleichtern den Einstieg in vorhandenes Schrifttum.

A review of ophthalmic pathology, aimed at students who are beginning to study the visual system and practitioners who want to distill the clinical implications from a pathologist's report. This work describes and illustrates the pathologic features of all disorders seen in ophthalmic practice, with emphasis on clinicopathologic correlations. There are illustrations to demonstrate the correlations between clinical entities and their pathologic counterparts. Special attention is given to those disorders that are most commonly encountered and/or most serious. The book also includes a discussion of the pathologist's relationship to the clinician.

This new fifth edition of Ocular Pathology maintains its reputation as an essential reference for understanding, diagnosing, and treating diseases of the eye. Offering comprehensive information on the latest clinical findings, it is unique in its full-color atlas presentation of pathology specimens reflecting the most current topics in the field. It remains an excellent reference for residents, board candidates, practicing ophthalmologists, cataract and refractive surgeons, and all individuals interested in vision care and visual sciences. Assists the reader in understanding the nature, causes and development of abnormal conditions in the eye. Updated self-assessment questions test overall understanding of the field and prepare for the Board Examination. Book is well-positioned for all levels of Eye Health Care Providers Over 240 color photographs and 930 black-and-white illustrations clearly depict hundreds of clinical entities and pathology specimens (external and slit-lamp photographs, fundus photographs, retinal angiograms, anatomic, histologic and electromicroscopic photos of all eye tissues and their diseases, along with numerous sketches and schematic illustrations of tissues).
Ophthalmic Pathology: A Concise Guide provides an introductory book of essential and fundamental information that will give the reader a solid foundation in ophthalmic pathology. The volume differs from the available classic and comprehensive ophthalmic pathology textbooks in its basic and simplified ‘one month approach’ concept. The text is rich in macroscopic and microscopic pathology images, clinical images, and bullet-point lists. Each chapter (Overview; Cornea; Conjunctiva; Eyelids; Uveal Tract; Retina; Orbit; and, Optic Nerve) includes approximately 30 color figures of common eye pathology diagnoses and also reviews the normal histology of each ocular component. An assortment of commentary related to common diagnoses and differential diagnostic considerations, clinical and pathological correlations, pearls and pitfalls, and ophthalmic pathology terminology can be found in each chapter. Other topics include: the fundamental pathology of glaucoma, trauma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the phacomatoses; commonly used histochemical stains employed in ophthalmic pathology; and basic prosection of enucleation and evisceration specimens.
Ophthalmic pathology is a mainstay in ophthalmic practice. A deep understanding of ophthalmic pathology is essential to being a good clinician, since what is seen from other disease entities in ophthalmic practice is simply an interpretation of gross pathology and sometimes a microscopic evaluation of diseases. Ophthalmic pathology is usually directed to ophthalmologists by general pathologists. Ophthalmologists are not used to identifying diseases at a histopathological or cellular level. The pathogenesis of diseases is dependent on ongoing changes over time, something that is difficult to ill.

Written and edited by the world-famous expert G.O.H. Naumann, this textbook delves into the details of ocular structures such as the nuances of morphology, surgical anatomy and pathology. The text covers unique features of intraocular surgery in closed system and open eye contexts. It goes on to cover crucial aspects of restoring the anterior chamber. Then it delineates the spectrum of potential complications in (pseudo-) exfoliation-syndromes as well as the most vulnerable cell populations. Readers are also treated to the features of normal and pathologic wound healing after non-mechanical laser and mechanical inventions. Brilliant artwork and sketches illustrate the complex pathology.
This monograph expands on the ultrasound exploration of the ocular globe (or, in other words, the human eye) with a review of the current knowledge about ocular ultrasound techniques and its indications in ophthalmic pathology. Ocular echography has only been recently studied in greater detail by ophthalmologists thanks to new imaging techniques such as optical coherence tomography [OCT] and scanning lasers, which have become the preference in ocular exploration, relegating ultrasound to cases with poor fundus visualization. New ultrasound equipment with multi-frequency linear probes between 15 to 18 MHz, also permits technicians to observe ocular structures with greater detail. A key aspect of ultrasound is its dynamic capability, which allows assessing the displacement of intraocular structures and their relation to the different eye layers. This is crucial in diagnosing retina pathologies that can affect the outcome of cataract surgery. Ocular echography is also an excellent option to determine retinal lesions in cases of ocular tumors (choroid melanoma) as it is also a differential diagnosis for other tumors (metastasic tumors or hemangiomas). The book also includes a chapter on the use of Color-Doppler ocular examinations in the diagnosis of ocular vasculopathies (arterial or venous occlusions). Echography in Ocular Pathology empowers readers – ophthalmologists and clinical technicians – with the knowledge to diagnose different eye pathologies and thus ameliorate ophthalmic patient management.
