By Colin A. McCannel MD, FACS (auth.), Aniz Girach, Marc D. de Smet (eds.)

This clinically orientated ebook is the 1st to be dedicated absolutely to the analysis and remedy of vitreo-macular interface ailment, characterised by way of a mixture of vitreo-macular adhesion (VMA) and vitreo-macular traction (VMT) that's implicated in quite a few problems. World-renowned specialists within the box talk about epidemiologic, anatomic, and physiologic facets, rfile the findings received with more recent imaging concepts, akin to spectral area optical coherence tomography, describe the remedies, and document at the result of preclinical and medical trials, together with a few formerly unpublished findings. This booklet will turn out worthy for ophthalmologists as we improve towards a destiny during which remedies of illnesses similar to age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy will most likely require adjunctive treatment to take on VMA/VMT concurrently.
