The focus of this book is the management of pterygium, a fleshy mass on the nasal conjunctiva that can invade the cornea. Despite its seemingly harmless nature, pterygium has been a difficult challenge for ophthalmic surgeons. The book is divided into four sections and includes 26 chapters covering topics such as the etiopathogenesis of pterygium, case workup, and various surgical techniques, including conjunctival autografting with glue or sutures, extended tenectomy, and the use of adjunctive therapies such as antimetabolites. The book also addresses special situations that can arise during pterygium surgery, such as double-headed pterygium, coexisting cataracts or glaucoma, and ocular surface squamous neoplasia. Techniques such as narrow strip conjunctival autograft, mini-flap technique, and minor ipsilateral simple limbal epithelial transplantation are also described in detail, enabling surgeons to replicate them. Pterygium: Management and Techniques is an essential resource for ophthalmic surgeons, providing comprehensive guidance on the management of pterygium and its associated complications.
