PrefaceCataract surgery has become extremely delicate. The reason is as we go smaller and smaller moving from the ECCE to the phaco and microphakonit the surgery gets more demanding. That is the reason why this book has been written. The idea is basically to teach everyone the intricacies of the surgical techniques.This book is a small book so that it can be kept in the operation theatre or carried in the hand. When one is starting a tough case the book can be read easily so that the difficulty of the case can be easily conquered. There are lots of figures also in the book so that one can understand the concept easily.We hope this book will help you master the surgery in a faster and better way. Sunita AgarwalAthiya AgarwalAmar AgarwalForwardProbably no technique in the history of Ophthalmology has stirred as much interest and literature as phacoemulsification has. This is caused, not only by the frequency of the disease it treats, but also because of the ever evolving and demanding technique and technology.This Mini Atlas of Phacoemulsification we have in our hands offers us a concise, well illustrated and demonstrative approach to the intricacies of the phaco world. With so many photographs and illustrations, this Mini Atlas is an easily accessible and navigable data source.It starts with a section on the basics of phaco and the simple, yet very helpful concept of gas forced infusion forwarded by Sunita Agarwal a few years ago, going through other steps of the phaco technique. A section on tough cases like subluxated nuclei then follows.Complications and nightmares do face even the most experienced surgeon, and on these, thanks to the phenomenal number of cases done and taught at the Agarwal hospitals, a special section is dedicated.We all remember the debate between the classical extracapsular and phaco surgeons in the mid-late 1980s, and whether it was worthy to make a 3.2mm incision to be widened later to implant the then only available 6mm diameter lens. We all knew that the 3.2 mm incision would eventually win, and so it did! For the past few years, we have been facing a similar (smaller) debate with the introduction of phaconit by Dr. Agarwal which was popularized as microphaco, bimanual phaco, or microincision cataract surgery (MICS). Dr. Agarwal is still going down the millimeter scale and is now presenting phaco through a 0.7 mm tip. Advances in IOL manufacturing and technology will no doubt help these surgical achievements more and more. Will the day come when we look back at the horribly large 3.2 mm incision?Once again, Dr. Amar Agarwal presents us with a fine addition to the library of Ophthalmology, which is a very helpful companion for all surgeons aspiring to improve their surgical results using the latest techniques available.Ahmad K Khalil, MD, PhDAssociate Professor of OphthalmologyNational Research Institute of OphthalmologyBoard Member and TreasurerEgyptian Society for Cataract and Corneal DiseasesOffice Bearer, Egyptian Society of the GlaucomasOver the next 2 years around 50 titles will be published, covering a comprehensive range of disciplines within medicine and health sciences.In a handy 152mm x 122mm size, and between 250-350 pages, these pocket atlases will contain up-to-the-minute information on their subject, which has been compiled, distilled and updated from prior work by each author. Each mini-atlas will also contain a free CDROM or DVDROM with material to accompany and complement the text.The 'Anshan Gold Standard Mini Atlas Series' will appeal to everyone involved in medicine and health sciences, from undergraduates to private practitioners, from medical professionals and academics. The full series will develop into an outstanding resource for any medical library.
