Vascular diseases of the retina are a major cause of blindness among all age groups. Edited and written by internationally well-known experts, this state-of-the-art comprehensive overview of basic and clinical science will enhance the understanding of retinal vascular disease and help in the evaluation of current and future treatment approaches for the clinician. The well-structured and highly illustrated text is divided into three easy-to-follow sections. This unique textbook-atlas also includes topics which are not currently found in other retinal disease textbooks, such as case reports and clinical follow-ups.


Section I -General Concepts in the pathogenesis of retinal vascular disease: Anatomy of the retinal vasculature. - General concepts in angiogenesis and vasculogenesis. - Cellular interaction in vascular remodeling. - Hematopoietic stem cells in vascular development. - Retinal vascular development.- Retinal vascular leakage. - Inflammation as a stimulus for vascular leakage and proliferation. - Hypoxia and hypoxic signaling in retinal disease. - Genetic approach to retinal vascular disease: the role of vHL. - Retinal blood flow. - Section II - General concepts in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal vascular disease: Angiography. - Optical coherence tomography in the diagnosis of retinal vascular disease. - General concepts in laser treatment for retinal vascular disease. - The role of photodynamic therapy in retinal vascular disease. - Cryopexy. - Vitrectomy in retinal vascular disease. - Pharmacological approaches to retinal vascular disease. - Section III. Pathology, clinical course and treatment of retinal vascular diseases: Non - proliferative diabetic retinopathy.- Proliferative diabetic retinopathy. - Diabetic macular edema. - Hypertensive retinopathy. - Dissiminated intravascular coagulopathy. - Radiation retinopathy. - Central retinal vein occlusion. - Retinal branch vein occlusion. - Arterial obstructions. - Ocular ischemic syndrome. - Retinopathy of prematurity. - Sickle cell retinopathy and hemoglobinopathy. - Vascular abnormalities: Parafoveal teleangiectasi . - Miliary aneurysms. - Macroaneurisms of the retina. - Angiomatosis retinae. - Coats disease. - Familiar exsudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR). -Inflammatory vascular disease: Morbus Eales. - Rheumatic disorders associated with vasulitis. - Immunosuppression in ocular Sarcoidosis. - Retinal vascular tumours. - Capillary hemangioma. - Racemous hemangioma. - Cavernous hemangioma. - Section IV: Clinical decision making and differential diagnosis: Red dots. - Vitreous bleeding. -Tractional detachment.
