Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery

Front Cover
Mohammad Javed Ali
Springer, Feb 8, 2018 - Medical - 494 pages

This second edition of the highly successful and comprehensive text on lacrimal disorders presents the latest developments in this rapidly evolving field. The new edition includes six new chapters, additional photographs and all chapters now have a separate section on recent advances.

Written by experts in the field of dacryology, this book is a practical guide to evaluating and managing patients with lacrimal disorders. It methodically discusses basic anatomy and underlying pathology, patient evaluation, and all surgical procedures currently used to manage such disorders. It thoroughly yet concisely reviews surgical modalities including the endoscopic and micro-endoscopic approaches and provides ample illustrations for a better understanding. Since familiarity with a surgical technique is incomplete without the knowledge of risk factors and red flags, the text highlights ways of dealing with surgical complications and failure. Further it discusses in detail controversial topics and treatment dilemmas and reviews the current consensus among the experts.

This is an up-to-date reference work for dacryologists, oculoplastic surgeons, general ophthalmologists as well as fellows in training.

About the author (2018)

Mohammad Javed Ali completed his medical education and MS Ophthalmology at NTR University of Health Sciences, Hyderabad, India. He obtained his fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners (FRCGP), UK, in 2003, and fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (FRCS) in 2008. He also completed his fellowship in Orbital Surgery in 2008, followed by a long-term fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery and Ocular Oncology, and Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery at L V Prasad Eye Institute in 2010. He later trained in Rhinology with leading international expert Peter-John Wormald from Australia. His clinical focus and expertise include endoscopic lacrimal and orbital surgeries. He is highly trained in ophthalmic plastics and dacryology and was instrumental in establishing the first-of-its-kind Institute of Dacryology at the L.V Prasad Eye Institute.

Javed is recipient of the prestigious Experienced Researcher – Alexander Von Humbold Fellowship Award for his research work in this field. He is also the first recipient of International Society of Ocular Oncology scholarship award and the Best Scientific Research Award for his papers at multiple forums like OPAI, AIOS and ARICON. He has described 2 new diseases of the lacrimal system along with their classifications and clinico-pathologic profiles. He received the 2015 ASOPRS Merrill Reeh Award for his path-breaking work on etio-pathogenesis of punctal stenosis. His textbook on the lacrimal system “Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery” is considered to be the most comprehensive works on the subject. He has more than 200 publications to his credit and regularly participates in conferences, instruction courses, and live surgical workshops.
