Orbital Surgery: A Conceptual Approach

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1995 - Medical - 394 pages
This color atlas is a unique visual learning tool for the surgeon planning and performing orbital operative procedures. Featuring more than 500 full-color drawings and photographs and nearly 200 radiographic images, the book enables the surgeon to visualize the anatomic structures of the orbit, the pathologic changes affecting these structures, and the surgical techniques used for specific problems. The text and graphic presentation aid the surgeon in developing a thorough understanding of anatomy, pathology, and surgical technique and applying this knowledge in surgical decision-making.Emphasis throughout is on the dynamic nature of the surgical decision-making process and the reasoning the skillful surgeon uses to adapt surgical techniques to the problem at hand. The authors emphasize pathologic change both from an investigative point of view and within the surgical environment by linking drawings to actual cases.The book begins with a review of the principles of surgical management, including indications for orbital surgery, clinicopathologic concepts, general techniques, lesion-specific management, and disease-specific indications for orbital surgery. An atlas of orbital anatomy presents a complete, detailed surgeon's-eye view of the orbital and periorbital structures. An atlas of orbital surgery depicts regional approaches to the anterior orbit, mid-orbit, and apical orbit and techniques for combined orbital and periorbital lesions; exenteration; and decompression for thyroid orbitopathy.A slide set of Orbital Surgery will also be available from Lippincott-Raven.
