Couverture de l’ouvrage Retinal Detachment Surgery and Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy
This clinically oriented book provides a complete  overview of Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) Retinal  Detachment, a difficult surgical challenge faced by  ophthalmologists. Small gauge  vitrectomy offers new  possibilities to tackle this  difficult pathology however this surgical approach may  differ from one  retinal surgeon to the next. To reflect the various approaches to treating PVR, the book is divided up in  three parts.

In the second section, well-known international  surgeons from Europe to Asia describe  their personal surgical approach for PVR detachment  and  demonstrate their surgery in videos. In the third part, a  large variety of retinal surgeons show case reports of PVR  retinal detachment to give a complete overview of dealing with this complex retinal disorder.

Part I: Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). Our surgical way.- Part II: Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). An international approach.- Part III: Case reports.
