This atlas provides all the basic and advanced information required by surgeons in order to understand fully the skull base anatomy. It is organized according to anatomo-surgical pathways to the hidden areas of the skull base. These pathways are described in step-by-step fashion with the aid of a wealth of color images and illustrations. The emphasis is on endoscopic anatomy, but in order to provide a holistic perspective, informative three-dimensional reconstructions are presented alongside the endoscopic images and radiologic images are included when appropriate. In effect, windows are opened on the anatomy so that the reader is guided on a journey throughout the skull base region. This anatomically oriented atlas will serve as an ideal learning tool for novice surgeons and will also prove an invaluable reference for the more experienced surgeon

This excellently illustrated book aims to equip dentists, oral surgeons, and trainees with the detailed knowledge of anatomical variations in the oral region that is now required for optimal daily clinical practice. The book opens with an introductory section on anatomical variations from the point of view of different clinical practitioners - oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, and endodontists. The newest anatomical knowledge and variations are then presented in turn for the mandible, maxillary sinus, hard palate, floor of the mouth, lips, temporomandibular joint, and teeth. In each chapter, clinical annotations are included in order to enhance understanding of the relationships between surgery and anatomy. The internationally renowned authors have been carefully selected for their expertise in the topics that they discuss. Anatomical Variations in Clinical Dentistry will be invaluable for general dentists, endodontists, periodontists, and implantologists and will also be an asset for anatomists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, dental students, and dental hygienists.

Based on a detailed study of rich archival sources, Model experts explores practices of model production and display, and reveals the often invisible labours of the co-operating artisans, anatomists, and administrators. The book, now available in paperback, shows that the models were central to a remarkable political experiment: 'La Specola' opened in 1775 as the Royal Museum of Physics and Natural History, one of the first public science museums in Europe. As a venue for public enlightenment, the museum displayed model anatomies to create the model citizen. The study also moves beyond the borders of Tuscany, following a set of Florentine waxes to Vienna to explore the diverse reactions of medical professionals and general audiences as the models travelled in enlightened Europe. -- .

The past two decades have witnessed enormous advances in the field of rhinology and sinonasal diseases. Chronic Sinusitis is one of the most common chronic illnesses. The introduction of functional endoscopic sinus surgery in the late eighties has revolutionised the surgical approach to sinus disease. Since that time, endoscopic sinus surgery has become the surgical procedure of choice and has been adopted for training and teaching. Furthermore, the approach to sinus disease has significantly evolved. We have witnessed the introduction of balloon sinuplasty, image guided surgery, multidisciplinary approach and the promotion of evidence based medicine and guidelines. The essence of any surgical technique or any guideline is based on the wealth of knowledge of anatomy and physiology. This book details the explicit anatomy and pathophysiology of the various sinuses. Special emphasis has been made on paediatric sinus diseases since it is a topic that has not been well covered and mandates further understanding. This unique book can form a roadmap for the otolaryngologist in training, medical students practicing otolaryngologist in private or academic sector and paramedical personnel. The target and scope go beyond otolaryngology to attract the attention of any paediatrician, general practitioner or family medicine specialist. The chapters have been well-written not only to detail the importance of each structure and pathophysiological mechanisms, but also to make it easily understandable for all readers at different levels. The authors have been selected from panels of nationally and intellectually acknowledged experts. The wealth of information in this book has exhausted the efforts of brilliant and well-established, experienced and academically prominent leaders in their fields. All chapters are not only written in easy-to-read detailed paragraphs, but are also illustrated with radiographic and surgical figures adding a live interpretation to the abstractive sentences. It is our hope that this text will serve as a comprehensive contemporary guide and reference to all students and practitioners that aim to widen their horizon of learning, revive their illustrative and descriptive memory of knowledge and improve their expertise.

This is the first atlas to depict in high-resolution images the fine structure of the spinal canal, the nervous plexuses, and the peripheral nerves in relation to clinical practice. The Atlas of Functional Anatomy for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine contains more than 1500 images of unsurpassed quality, most of which have never been published, including scanning electron microscopy images of neuronal ultrastructures, macroscopic sectional anatomy, and three-dimensional images reconstructed from patient imaging studies. Each chapter begins with a short introduction on the covered subject but then allows the images to embody the rest of the work; detailed text accompanies figures to guide readers through anatomy, providing evidence-based, clinically relevant information. Beyond clinically relevant anatomy, the book features regional anesthesia equipment (needles, catheters, surgical gloves) and overview of some cutting edge research instruments (e.g. scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy). Of interest to regional anesthesiologists, interventional pain physicians, and surgeons, this compendium is meant to complement texts that do not have this type of graphic material in the subjects of regional anesthesia, interventional pain management, and surgical techniques of the spine or peripheral nerves.
Complete, labeled illustrations of the sections of the heart and

Shows general anatomy including middle and inner ear, septum of nose, lateral wall of nose, and inspiration, phonation & posterior view of larynx. Size is 20" W by 26" H.
The vertebrate skeleton is one of nature's most amazing feats. Composed of cartilage and bone, it forms the supportive structure for all the remaining aspects of our anatomy. Stripped of skin, we can see the body's fascinating underlying architecture. In this one-of-a-kind book, biologist and skeletal reconstructionist Steve Huskey lays bare the vertebrate skeleton, providing a guided tour of the nuanced differences among the many featured vertebrate species. Using skeletal preparations he has spent decades assembling, Huskey helps us understand why animals live the way they do. He shows us the jaw and fang structures that allow venomous snakes to both kill and consume their prey whole. We see that the eastern mole is built like a weightlifter, allowing it to "swim through soil." Startling images demonstrate that the odd-looking trumpetfish is built not for music but for suction, with a skull that expands to vacuum in its prey. The pages of The Skeleton Revealed illuminate not only the elegance of each skeleton, but also the natural history story each skeleton tells. Come along-let's take a voyage through the boneyard.
