Over a decade after the last edition, Operative Thoracic Surgery, Sixth Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated by a team of prestigious international contributors. Particular emphasis is given to new and emerging techniques, particularly minimally invasive procedures, ensuring that the book remains an essential resource for surgeons in training, residents and fellows in thoracic and esophageal surgery, and fully qualified practitioners needing a definitive reference. Additional text describes the principles and justification of choosing each procedure, pre-operative assessment and preparation, post-operative care and outcomes.
Pediatric cardiac surgery is a dynamic, fast-moving field. Busy practitioners, like you, need clear and comprehensive guidance you can rely on to ensure optimal patient care.
For over 25 years "Pediatric Cardiac Surgery" has been the gold-standard reference for pediatric and adult congenital heart surgeons, pediatric and congenital cardiologists, intensivists, anesthesiologists, residents and nurses.
Now, in this thoroughly revised fourth edition, you again get trusted, complete coverage of the field with timely new features and expert reviews of critical topics including heart transplantation, emerging modalities for diagnosing congenital heart and tracheal defects, the surgical technique of Fontan conversion with arrhythmia surgery, the medical challenges of managing adult CHD patients, and more.
This new edition includes: Contributions from over 65 world-renowned expertsMore beautiful illustrations, by renowned medical illustrator Rachid Idriss, which have brought acclaim to previous editionsReviews of the embryology, physical findings, diagnostic criteria, and therapeutic choices for each disease entity and describes the latest in surgical techniques in each chapterAll-new chapters that guide readers through new treatment options and other key developments since the publication of the third edition highlighting recent advances in congenital heart surgery.All-new new chapters that review advances in right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduits, arrhythmia surgery, double outlet ventricles, and adult congenital heart disease, among other key topics.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been in clinical use for some 40 years, but it is only in the past decade that its application in the treatment of life-threatening circulatory and respiratory failure has truly flourished. This book presents a comprehensive overview of both pathophysiological and practical aspects of circulatory and respiratory extracorporeal support. The basics of ECMO, including its history, the "ECMO team," cannulation, materials, and blood- surface interactions, are first discussed. The various indications for and particular characteristics of circulatory and respiratory extracorporeal life support are then described in detail in the main part of the book. Patient care during ECMO and monitoring of the ECMO patient are also carefully covered, with explanation of the management of technical and clinical complications and transport-related problems. Further topics include long-term therapy options beyond ECMO, such as ventricular assist devices and transplants, outcome, the new frontiers of ECMO for organ procurement and future challenges. The authors are well-known experts in the field whose authoritative contributions and attention to practical aspects will be invaluable for novices and experienced practitioners alike.
Offering patients a higher safety profile and less discomfort than radio-frequency ablation, catheter cryoablation is a safe, effective and efficient alternative for clinicians treating atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias. In The Practice of Catheter Cryoablation for Cardiac Arrhythmias, cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiologists and cardiology fellows will be able to gain an in-depth update in this rapidly advancing field. Those who wish to offer their patients this treatment option will learn how to master various procedural techniques related to catheter cryoablation. Edited by the pioneer of cryoablation therapy in Asia, with chapters written by expert cardiac electrophysiologists from centers in Asia, Europe and the US who have extensive experience using cryoablation to treat patients, this new book: * Provides comprehensive, clinically-focused guidance on all applications of catheter cryoablation for the treatment of arrhythmias * Focuses on catheter-based techniques that can be performed in the EP laboratory * Reflects global best practices form centers with extensive experience in cryoablation techniques * Covers the use of catheter cryoablation in both adult and pediatric arrhythmias To further enhance reader's understanding of the emergent techniques covered in the text, the book's companion website features video clips of live cryoablation procedures, plus case-based self-assessment questions for selected chapters.
Preoperative and intraoperative echocardiography has become an indispensable tool for guiding mitral valve surgery and has fostered the development of many innovative surgical techniques. Mitral valvuloplasty is now an established surgical method for the treatment of mitral insufficiency but the success is largely dependent on the extent of the underlying disease of the mitral valve. The book by Dr. Ng and coauthors is an extraordinary presentation of the relation between echocardiographic display of mitral valve pathology and reconstructive mitral valve surgery. The atlas provides an excellent illustrative guide to teach echocardiographic-anatomic correlations and educates the reader on the techniques of mitral valve repair. The quality of the illustrations, particularly the surgical photographs is exquisite. The book will be helpful for cardiologists and cardiac surgeons.
This book presents a clear and concise summary of the clinical tenets of lung transplantation with an update on recent developments in the field. It examines the operational principles which underpin successful lung transplantation and shows how an evidenced based approach combined with wisdom borne of experience leads to better outcomes in day-to-day management. Focused on simplicity and elegance of style with ample visual images, this book provides a unique overview of trends and strategies for the best outcomes in lung transplantation. Approachable and easily digested, this book will be a go-to resource for professionals seeking a succinct and well-illustrated guide to this growing area of surgical transplantation.
Liposuction began as a contouring procedure but has evolved into the treatment of obese patients, gynecomastia, ptosis, macromastia, and even patients who have complications from heart disease or diabetes. Other disorders such as axillary sweat hypersecretion, lipomas, and angiomas are also potential disorders that may be treated with liposuction.
Physicians performing liposuction must be adequately trained and experienced in the potential and actual complications before attempting to perform liposuction. Patient safety is the most important aspect of all surgeries, but especially of cosmetic surgery, which is an elective procedure.
New technology helps improve results but experience, care, and skill of the cosmetic surgeon is necessary to obtain optimal results that satisfy the patient.
The contributors to this book have spent time and effort presenting the cosmetic and plastic surgeon as much information as possible on the techniques and uses of liposuction for cosmetic and non-cosmetic surgery purposes.
