About this book


Volume 2 of this edited book covers management of complex situations and complications. Topics such as combined surgeries, EK in complex situations, management of complications, graft management, and RHO-associated kinase (Rock) inhibitors have been covered as well. Basics and various surgical techniques have been covered in Volume 1 of Mastering Endothelial Keratoplasty.

Endothelial keratoplasty is a field of great interest to all corneal surgeons. It is an exciting and evolving field in corneal transplantation as the newer techniques of DSAEK, DMEK, E-DMEK and PDEK have inherent advantages that make them supersede the older techniques by far. Hence, in today's scenario with the clearly superior results that these techniques offer, it is imperative for all corneal surgeons to learn them and know everything about managing the patient from the pre-operative to the postoperative period.

This two-volume book is a must-read for the beginner as well as the established ophthalmologist with interest in corneal transplantation. It is also a must-have for educational institutions, hospital- based libraries and for post-graduate students, fellows and residents who want to expand their knowledge.
