Principles of Surgical Patient Care - Second Edition (Paperback, 2nd ed): C.J. Mieny, U. Mennen Principles of Surgical Patient Care - Second Edition (Paperback, 2nd ed)

Departmentalising medicine has produced many specialities. This development is both essential and inevitable if progress is pursued. In the surgical field, at least ten disciplines have developed. Although these disciplines are very different in nature and practice, a large common ground binds them together: this title is about these common basic principles, which should form the core knowledge of all surgeons regardless of speciality. As in the past, the subjects covered in the intermediate examinations of the College of medicine of South Africa and the Universities offering Master in Surgery Degrees (Mmed) are represented. This material covers the principles of managing emergency situations across the different surgical disciplines, including intensive care, infections and trauma.

For the healthcare professional, the operating theatre is a highly specialised environment. One reason for this is the pace at which theatre cases proceed. However, it is also an exciting and challenging environment and can be extremely rewarding. An Introduction to the Operating Theatre for Nurses and Operating Theatre Practitionerswill provide the student with the foundational knowledge necessary to make the first experience in theatre a meaningful one. The primary objective of the book is to assist the student to become a safe practitioner and a valuable part of the multi-disciplinary team that works within the theatre. This objective can only be achieved through sound intra-operative competencies that place the patient at the centre of any activity.

This richly illustrated volume describes the performance of total and subtotal gastrectomy with extended D2 lymphadenectomy by providing a detailed step-by-step guide to both manual and mechanical procedures. Gastric cancer is the fourth most commonly occurring cancer and the second most common cancer-related cause of death worldwide, and surgery remains the only potentially curative treatment. Although several aspects of surgical management are still controversial, all guidelines for the treatment of curable gastric cancer recommend subtotal gastrectomy (for tumors located in the antrum and corpus) or total gastrectomy (for tumors located in the fundus) with extended D2 lymphadenectomy. Various technical tips and secrets are revealed that serve to simplify the procedure and simultaneously make it more effective: by rendering esophagojejunal and gastrojejunal anastomosis more secure, the risk of leakage is minimized. High-quality intraoperative color photographs and drawings covering all steps facilitate understanding of these complex operations and will prove an invaluable tool for surgeons, residents and professionals in the field.

Palliative surgery can greatly contribute to improving symptom control and quality of life for terminal cancer patients. Owing to the advanced stage of the disease, however, this type of surgery is also associated with significant morbidity and mortality. It is therefore important for surgeons to have a sound understanding of the medical and scientific background underlying treatment decisions in palliative surgery, a foundation that this book provides. The opening chapters examine the relationship between palliative medicine and palliative surgery and address general issues including pain management and anesthesiological considerations. The role of palliative surgery in a wide range of disease settings is then thoroughly explored, including detailed information on surgical techniques and their indications and outcomes. This book will be an invaluable resource for all who wish to learn more about the emerging role of palliative surgery.

The second edition of Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field, and it serves as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers with an interest in minimally invasive bariatric surgery. Additionally, the second edition includes new features that will benefit the resident, fellow, or bariatric surgeon new to the field. Specifically, each evidence-based chapter (i.e. outcomes, complications, epidemiology, etc) concludes with three or four exam questions that emphasize the salient points of the chapter and provide fellowship programs a valuable training tool and resource for their academic curriculum. These questions are either single-answer multiple choice or true/false format and the correct response with a brief explanation follows. As more emphasis is placed on completing a comprehensive curriculum and obtaining certification for bariatric training, this aspect of the book is unique and provides added value to the text. The new edition also incorporates many new or updated medical illustrations to enhance the technique chapters and provide more uniformity for the artwork throughout the book. Each of the major procedures include surgical technique, outcomes, and management of complications in separate chapters to provide an easy reference for the busy clinician preparing for a case or presentation. Another unique feature of the text is a link to video files hosted online for the relevant chapters. This video library will be of great value to the user. As the number of fellowships in laparoscopic bariatric surgery continues to increase, this updated text will provide a valuable resource for general and bariatric surgeons, laparoscopic surgeons, fellows, residents, medical students, obesity researchers, and industry representatives involved in this field.
