Pterygium surgery can be challenging for ophthalmic surgeons due to high rates of tissue re-growth. To address these difficulties and to provide the latest advances in ocular surface surgery, Pterygium: Techniques and Technologies for Surgical Success has been published.

Dr. John A. Hovanesian and a team of contributors provide comprehensive coverage of intraoperative and postoperative patient management, offering step-by-step guidance on a wide range of treatment therapies, such as the use of fibrin tissue adhesive, conjunctival autograft techniques (including wide margin autograft), amniotic membrane techniques and pearls, mitomycin and 5FU adjuncts, conjunctival chalasis, and postoperative complications management (including the surgical approach to recurrences).

This essential resource is designed for ophthalmic surgeons, residents, fellows, and assisting staff who need to stay up-to-date with the latest procedures for pterygium surgery.
