Retinal Detachment Surgery by A.H. Chigneell. Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1980. Pp 166, Figs. Refs. black and white figures, one colour plate.

This is a well arranged book with the selec­tions of topics useful for proper technique of examination, clinical evaluation of a detach­ment care and its management. Much empha­sis has been laid on the clinical signs and their most practical interpretation to under­stand its genesis. The detached retina recent or old with or without secondary changes in the retina and vitreous is very well represen­ted in the drawings. The behaviour of retina and vitreous membrance as it changes with the time is very well documented.

The author presents the management of a case in a simplified manner by taking an easy surgical approach without going much into controversies of other surgical modalities. The main emphasis is laid on the episcleral im­plants-Siliastive sponges with or without drainage. The indications are very well dis­cussed. No much has been said of the intra­scleral dissections and use of silicone tires.

The author deserves appreciation for bring­ing out such a useful book on Retinal detach­ment surgery which gives a practical insight of the subject. It is well recommended for training ophthalmologists taking up this speci­ality and retinal surgery to have a quick grasp of subject in a short time.
