Bruce Shields ins Deutsche übersetzt und im Hinblick auf die Gegebenheiten im deutschprachigen Raum bearbeitet zu haben. Der SHIELDS/KRIEGLSEIN bietet also mehr als nur die Übersetzung eines amerikanischen Lehrbuch-Klassikers: Es entspricht den Anforderungen einer deutschsprachigen Leserschaft, und es ist überdies in bezug auf das Bildmaterial reichhaltiger ausgestattet. Augenärzte in Klinik und Praxis erhalten einen profunden und aktuellen Überblick über Ätiologie und Pathophysiologie der Glaukome, über eine zeitgemäße Diagnostik sowie eine Fülle neuer Behandlungswege in der Glaukomtherapie. - Beispielsweise werden neuartige Wirkstoffe und deren Wirkmechanismen sowie Nutzen-Risiko-Analyse von medikamenten im Rahmen der medikamentösen Glaukomtherapie diskutiert; auch im Bereich der Lasertherapie der Glaukome wurden eine Reihe neuer Verfahren entwickelt, die traditionellen Therapieformen in einer kritischen Bewertung gegenübergestellt werden. Der SHIELDS/KRIEGLSTEIN bietet mehr als das amerikanische Original und ist eine lohnende Investition.

Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedure in the United States, and cataracts are a leading cause of visual impairment in the world. Glaucoma is also a very common eye disease with an expected 3.3 million Americans afflicted with primary open angle glaucoma by 2020. The coexistence of these two diseases is not uncommon and management of a cataract can have significant impact on the glaucoma status of a patient. Cataract surgery textbooks may have one chapter dedicated to the management of cataract with coexistent glaucoma. Likewise, a typical glaucoma surgical text dedicates one chapter to the management of these two diseases concurrently. This book will focus on the treatment of cataract in the setting of glaucoma, using an evidence-based medicine approach. Managing cataracts to the best advantage of the glaucoma should result in the best visual outcomes for patients. It should be a wonderful resource for general ophthalmologists and residents as well as glaucoma fellows.
