about

This book covers the field of keratoprosthesis in detail and focuses specifically on the Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis (KPro), which is the device most widely used today. Extensive information is provided on all aspects of KPro surgery, from history and preoperative evaluation to surgical techniques and postoperative management of complications. Surgical videos are included that will aid both beginning and advanced corneal surgeons in mastering these procedures. In addition, essential basic science concepts relevant to keratoprosthesis surgery are explained and other keratoprostheses in use around the world are considered. A brief overview of integrating artificial corneas is provided and the future of keratoprosthesis is also discussed. The book is written by some of the most distinguished and renowned experts in the field.
