Offers a symptom-driven method of the analysis and therapy of significant neuro-ophthalmic stipulations. With the point of interest at the sufferer, this ebook emphasizes exam and acceptable adjunctive reports, together with a dialogue of diagnostic imaging modalities, and leads the reader throughout the occasionally refined manifestations of neuro-ophthalmic affliction to anatomical localization of lesions and definitive prognosis. an summary of the anatomy of visible pathways is followed via many illustrations.

Upon crowning glory of part five, readers could be capable to:

- Describe a symptom-driven method of sufferers with universal neuro-ophthalmic proceedings on the way to formulate a suitable differential diagnosis

- opt for the main applicable assessments and imaging, according to symptomatology, to diagnose and deal with neuro-ophthalmic problems in a cheap manner

- examine eye flow issues and the ocular motor approach

Get Chemical Ocular Burns: New Understanding and Treatments PDF

Greater than 25,000 chemical items have the aptitude to reason ocular burns. simply because such burns can lead to lack of sight or the necessity for corneal transplantation, they need to be taken very heavily. This e-book is the 1st to be dedicated completely to chemical ocular burns. All elements of the topic are coated, together with heritage, epidemiology, chemical brokers and reactions, histology, pathophysiology, medical indicators, scientific and surgical remedies, and emergency care.

Sample text

Superior, inferior, and nasal fibers take a fairly straight course. Temporal axons originate above and below horizontal raphe (HR) and take an arching course to the disc. Axons arising from ganglion cells in the nasal macula project directly to the disc as the papillomacular bundle (PM). B, Lesions involving the decussating nasal retinal fibers, represented by the dashed red line, can result in bow-tie atrophy. l optic nerve atrophy (represented by red outlined triangles) corresponding to damage to crossing nasal fibers.

The Pl segment ends with the PCoA, which joins the vertebrobasilar circulation to the carotid circulation anteriorly. The connecting PCoA parallels the course of CN III, which explains the high frequency of CN III palsy with PCoA aneurysms (see Chapters 2 and 8). As the distal PCA courses around the brainstem, it gives off a parieto-occipital branch before terminating in the calcarine branch, which supplies the primary visual cortex (Fig 1-13). Parieto-occipitalA - MCA Upper branch Lower branch The occipital cortex and its blood supply.

Ax, 005, traverses the sclera through the lamina cribrosa, which contains approximately~ zo0- 300 channels. The combination of small channels and a unique blood supply (largely [ron1 branches of he posterior ciliary arteries) probably plays a role in several optic neuropathie . The axons of the optic nerve depend on metabolic production within the gan- glion cell bodies in the retina. AxonaJ transport-both anterograde and retrograde-of molecules subcelJular organelles, and. metabolic products occurs along the length of the optic nerve and is an energy-dependent system requiring high concentrations of oxygen.
