The second edition of “Corneal Cross-Linking” provides a comprehensive and updated resource on this innovative procedure for the treatment of corneal ectatic disorders such as keratoconus and corneal ectasia. Written by experts in the field, the book covers the principles of corneal cross-linking, patient selection, preoperative preparation, surgical techniques, postoperative management, and potential complications.
The book includes new chapters on pediatric cross-linking, combined cross-linking and refractive surgery, and accelerated cross-linking protocols. The updated edition also discusses the latest research on cross-linking and its long-term outcomes.
With its detailed illustrations, photographs, and case studies, “Corneal Cross-Linking” is an essential reference for ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of corneal ectatic disorders.
Corneal Cross-Linking, Second Edition represents an innovative approach to treating primary acquired and secondary induced ectatic disorders. In addition, corneal cross-linking (CXL) has promising applications as an alternative in the treatment of corneal infectious and non-infectious melting, as well as conditions such as Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy.
The new and expanded Second Edition of Corneal Cross-Linking by Drs. Farhad Hafezi and J. Bradley Randleman will provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the CXL process, including the basic science foundations, treatment protocols and outcomes, recognition and management of potential complications, and modification of standard protocol for special circumstances.
Given all the changes in this rapidly progressing field, many brief topics from the first edition have now grown into full chapters or sections. These include expanded sections on alternative treatment protocols, corneal imaging and biomechanics, combing cross-linking with other refractive treatments, and a section devoted specifically to the most highly debated controversies in the field today.
With each chapter being fully updated plus including over twenty new chapters that covers the latest advances and future directions, Corneal Cross-Linking, Second Edition represents the cutting-edge of CXL research and clinical practice.
