This book is a comprehensive illustrated surgical guide to operative exposures of the spinal nerves, also known as peripheral nerves. Each chapter is devoted to a particular nerve and describes the origin, anatomic relations, branches, surgical approaches, and clinical significance. The text is concise and easy to read and is complemented by informative color photos from cadaveric dissections and surgical procedures. A separate chapter on technical notes identifies surgical pearls relating to techniques such as nerve suturing and nerve transfers. Importantly, unlike other peripheral nerve atlases, this book is accompanied by videos of different approaches. The book will be especially valuable for residents and fellows in training and candidates for oral board and MOC examinations. It is also designed to provide a quick illustrated review for surgeons unfamiliar with a procedure.

The year 1818 saw the publication of one of the most influential science-fiction stories of all time. Frankenstein: Or, Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley had a huge impact on gothic horror and science-fiction genres, and her creation has become part of our everyday culture, from cartoons to Hallowe'en costumes. Even the name `Frankenstein' has become a by-word for evil scientists and dangerous experiments. How did a teenager with no formal education come up with the idea for an extraordinary novel such as Frankenstein? Clues are dotted throughout Georgian science and popular culture. The years before the book's publication saw huge advances in our understanding of the natural sciences, in areas such as electricity and physiology, for example. Sensational science demonstrations caught the imagination of the general public, while the newspapers were full of lurid tales of murderers and resurrectionists. Making the Monster explores the scientific background behind Mary Shelley's book. Is there any science fact behind the science fiction? And how might a real-life Victor Frankenstein have gone about creating his monster? From tales of volcanic eruptions, artificial life and chemical revolutions, to experimental surgery, 'monsters' and electrical experiments on human cadavers, Kathryn Harkup examines the science and scientists that influenced Shelley, and inspired her most famous creation.

This eagerly awaited book offers a unique, comprehensive scientific study of the anatomy of the organ of female sexual pleasure. The authors use macroscopic and microscopic research to guide the reader from the glans, the visible part of the clitoris, where they explore the impressive sensory corpuscles, to the hidden roots of the bulbo-clitoral organ. They show its complexity, its exact location within the external genitalia and its intimate relationship with the urethro-vaginal pyramid. They also remind us that throughout history there has been a failure to understand this organ, and explain that this misunderstanding remains the cause of persistent excisions, criminal mutilating practices that have not yet been eradicated. Using extensive iconography, they demonstrate throughout this book that the bulbo-clitoral organ is an exceptional natural treasure that every woman possesses and that every man should know well.
Aimed at the medical and dental student this manual presents a regional approach to anatomy which is in contrast to the systematic approach preferred by the health care sciences such as nursing, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy. The authors attempt to comply with the specific clinical needs of the medical and dental undergraduate student by concentrating on applicable clinical anatomy. The curriculum is presented on such a level that postgraduate students, who need to maintain a thorough overview in regions other than that of their specific speciality, will also benefit.
Die werk bied 'n sistematiese benadering tot anatomie. Hierdie benadering, in teenstelling met die regionale benadering wat deur mediese en tandheelkundige studente gevolg word, is veral gerig op medies-verwante beroepsrigtings soos verpleegkunde, radiografie, arbeidsterapie en fisioterapie. Die boek is in 'n maklik leesbare styl geskryf en daar word aan elk van bogenoemde kursusse se behoeftes voldoen.
The aim of this book is not only to help climbers and coaches gain a better understanding of medical consultations, but also to offer insights into practical treatment. As regards the medical field, the explanation of the different forces exerted on fingers during climbing allows better assessment of the causes of injuries and can help injured climbers adjust when they return to training. Despite their small size and fragility, fingers are essential in rock-climbing. The publication of this book was motivated by the numerous possible injuries and the required treatments, as well as the desire to connect medicine to this field. Combining scientific and medical research offers a new approach to training and practice. Indeed, promoting cooperation between specialists and coaches for the benefit of climbers can reduce the risk of lesions and improve training.

A hands-on tool for medical students, Neuroanatomy Basics: A Clinical Guide covers key basic neuroanatomy material and the most important clinical correlations that a medical student is required to know. The book's style is simple and features an array of figures/illustrations that will show the student what he/she has just studied. It will follow a breadcrumbs approach that relies heavily on images/figures. Relying on photographic memory is quite helpful in grasping 'dry and rigid' neuroanatomy concepts; hence, the large number of figures contained in the book. Students will not have to refer to an atlas or other references in order to grasp the book's concepts. The peculiar order of sections will guide the student through the sequence of events/anatomical structures back and forth from cellular to structural levels, depending on the stimulus and response.
