This book provides detailed information on functional anatomy, physical examination, and clinical radiology of the shoulder with a view to enabling the clinician to identify the most suitable treatment approach to different shoulder joint pathologies. In addition, it describes the arthroscopic treatment techniques most frequently employed in patients with these conditions and presents numerous arthroscopic images detailing characteristic findings. The shoulder is widely regarded as the most complex joint in the human body, displaying the widest range of motion. Knowledge of normal and pathological anatomy, ability to perform a proper physical examination, and appropriate selection of imaging modalities and interpretation of imaging appearances, often in close collaboration with an imaging expert, are all vital for correct diagnosis and choice of treatment approach. Surgeons and trainees will find this richly illustrated book to be an excellent educational guide and an instructive source of stepwise guidance from clinical presentation to achievement of desired treatment outcomes.

This classic well-illustrated textbook simplifies neuroscience content to focus coverage on the essentials and helps students learn important neuroanatomical facts and definitions. Among its many distinctions are its organization by region and then pathways into and out of the nervous system, which permits students an integrated view of the anatomy and physiology; level of treatment suited to increasingly shorter neuroanatomy course hours for medical and allied health students; and the author's succinct writing style.
Traditionally, vascular disorders of the upper extremity have been slighted in conventional vascular surgery texts, despite the fact that these disorders are among those most frequently encountered. Since its original publication in 1983, this text has been a welcome and effective remedy for this reference gap. The current edition of this widely acclaimed classic, succeeds, once again, in its goal to expertly and comprehensively present the clinical presentation, diagnostic techniques, and therapeutic approaches to almost the full range of common and uncommon conditions affecting this area.Part I focuses on the vascular evaluation, reviewing diagnostic and interventional angiography, as well as such newer methods as Magnetic Resonance Angiography. Part II is an all-new section that covers cumulative traumatic disorders, with surgical options and methodology expertly detailed and in-depth chapters on repetitive motion disorders and pain management. Part III provides a superbly illustrated practical framework for the categorisation, diagnosis and management of arteriovenous malforations. Finally, Part IV reviews vasculitis and collagen-vascular disorders - newly enhanced by a description of the extraordinary development of endoscopic methods and techniques.In his review of the second edition (published in the May, 1990 issue of Journal of Vascular Surgery), Dr. Kenneth Ouriel calls this book "well organized, well illustrated, and comprehensive" and concludes: 'Mastery of this text will allow one to diagnose and treat upper extremity vascular problems in a logical and efficient manner, providing the patient with the best opportunity for successful management of these frequently disabling disorders.'

The purpose of this textbook is to enable a Neuroscientist to discuss the structure and functions of the brain at a level appropriate for students at many levels of study including undergraduate, graduate, dental or medical school level. It is truer in neurology than in any other system of medicine that a firm knowledge of basic science material, that is, the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the nervous system, enables one to readily arrive at the diagnosis of where the disease process is located and to apply their knowledge at solving problems in clinical situations. The authors have a long experience in teaching neuroscience courses at the first or second year level to medical and dental students and to residents in which clinical information and clinical problem solving are integral to the course.
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a rare and severe genetic disorder affecting children. A-T is a multisystem disease characterized by progressive neurodegeneration, immunodeficiency and cancer predisposition. This detailed volume explores the ever expanding field of research into the ATM (ataxia-telangiectasia, mutated) gene and the role played by ATM kinase in DNA damage signaling and diverse cellular processes. What follows is a handy desktop reference for both seasoned A-T researchers and postgraduate students, as it demonstrates the breadth of recent developments in A-T studies. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Both classic and cutting-edge techniques are described, including ATM gene mutation detection, assays for radiosensitivity and radioresistant DNA synthesis, new methods to measure ATM kinase activity by imaging microscopy and high content screening as well as proteomics, phosphoproteomics and bioinformatics approaches to decipher ATM-dependent signalling pathways. Additional methods include generation of patient-specific stem cells and approaches to study ATM functions in the nervous system. Comprehensive and practical, ATM Kinase: Methods and Protocols aims to ignite and attract the interest of colleagues from diverse fields to A-T research in an effort to bring their expertise and fresh ideas to resolve many A-T puzzles still waiting to be pieced together and to alleviate the suffering of A-T children and their families.
