Martinez-Toldos (ophthalmology, Hospital General U. de Elche, Spain) and Hoyos (ophthalmology, Instituto Oftalmologico Hoyos, Spain) gather together a group of ophthalmologists from Spain, Brazil, and the US for 18 chapters on vitreoretinal surgery for vitreoretinal surgeons. They describe all of the procedures of basic vitreoretinal surgery and how they should be used, and delve into surgical anatomy, presurgery examination, vitrectomy and optical coherence tomography, anesthesia, instrumentation, various procedures, and complications. This edition has information on 23, 35, and 27 gauge vitrectomy instruments, new techniques such as 27 gauge vitrectomy, new high-speed vitreotomes with duty cycles that provide control of eye tissues and avoid retinal damage, and new illumination systems. It has new chapters on vitrectomy for eye trauma and treating patients with myopia, and discussion of new drugs, such as antiangiogenic compounds, sustain-release agents, and enzymatic vitrectomy. Two DVD-ROMs contain videos of surgical procedures for treating cataract surgery complications, retinal detachment, macular disease, tissue staining, removing epiretinal and internal limiting membranes, treating proliferative retinopathy, lensectomy, managing myopic masculoschisis, and the use of new medications, among others.
