Pediatric Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, 2nd Edition, presents the latest diagnostic concepts and management techniques in the rapidly growing field of pediatric oculofacial plastic surgery. With numerous surgical innovations and exciting new medical treatment concepts that have emerged since the previous edition in 2002, this well-illustrated book provides an invaluable resource for both comprehensive ophthalmologists and subspecialists with a particular interest in pediatric eyelid, orbit, and nasolacrimal system disorders.
In addition to covering clearly illustrated basic oculoplastic procedures, the book discusses surgical innovations ranging from the Sonopet system for safer removal of bone in lacrimal surgery to the development of complex image guidance technology for sinus and orbital surgery. Detailed discussion of syndromic and non-syndromic congenital anomalies explore a variety of surgical techniques and the nuances of applying these approaches in the management of various structural abnormalities.
Further important advances include new analytic laboratory techniques that can illuminate the genetic basis of many pediatric oculoplastic disorders, various medical management advances such as the role of beta blockers in the treatment of facial and orbital hemangiomas, and the development of biologic pathway blockers inhibiting tumor growth which offer real potential for reducing the necessity of surgical intervention.
