For corneal fellows and surgeons, John (ophthalmology, Loyola U. Chicago) brings together ophthalmologists and others from across the globe in 29 chapters that detail a new way of performing corneal transplant without the use of sutures and an absence of a full-thickness corneal wound. They discuss corneal hysteresis and biomechanical properties of the normal cornea, physiology, the corneal endothelium, imaging, the new generation of operating microscope, new instrumentation, the artificial anterior chamber, and the definition, terms, and classifications of lamellar corneal surgery. Further chapters cover the history of lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty, deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty (DLEK), Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), comparisons of the older form of sutureless transplantation to DSAEK, and future directions, including Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). The DVD contains videos of DSAEK surgical techniques and instruments. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
