The new edition of "Ocular Surgery" in English should receive acclaim not only in our country but in every country in which English is spoken or read. This world-famous author has collected the most practical techniques of other ophthalmologists, interspersed them with his comments, appraisals, and criticisms, and added his personal approach to these same problems.

The other refreshingly new procedures and devices described are (1) the ingenious Strampelli technique for placing the plastic lens in the anterior chamber, (2) Shapland-Paufique's operation for inferoexternal lamellar scleral resection, ( 3) the unique and clever Champignotom and Lamellarotom of Francheschetti, used to obtain a perforating full-thickness corneal graft centrally, and a peripheral lamellar graft (mushroom graft), and (4) the Arruga-Maura-Brazil implant
