Now iBook Ready- Vitreous Microsurgery: Fifth Edition

Vitreous Microsurgey TextbookDrs. Steven Charles and Jorge Calzada’s publication, Vitreous Microsurgery, is available for download in the Apple Store. The fifth edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. More than 170 three-dimensional full-color illustrations—many by the Charles Retina Institute’s resident medical artist, Byron Wood—enable surgeons to clearly visualize the techniques. 

This edition has new chapters on the Constellation vitrectomy system, uveitis, retinal complications of permanent keratoprosthesis, and anti-VEGF therapy and completely rewritten chapters on anesthesia and on retinopathy of prematurity. All illustrations have been updated, the majority to a 25-gauge approach instead of 20-gauge, and many new illustrations have been added. Many techniques and parameters unique to 25-gauge sutureless vitrectomy are discussed in detail. 

A companion website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank.
