Now revised and expanded into a major reference work, Scuderi and Tria bring together leaders in the field for this update of their classic 2010 text on minimally invasive surgery in orthopedics. Organized anatomically, each section has been reviewed and revised with the most current information and techniques, both common and complex. An entirely new section on analgesics and anesthesia is included, and the former section on the upper extremities is split into three distinct sections on the shoulder, elbow, and hand, respectively, for a more in-depth presentation of these areas. Subsequent sections on the hip, knee, foot and ankle, and spine are similarly reinforced with the state-of-the-art for each region. The final section is reworked to include not only computer navigation strategies but other innovative technologies in MIS as well. Now, as then, this is the go-to reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows seeking a practical understanding of minimally invasive techniques in orthopedics.
This concise, easy-to-use book offers expert insights into current controversies in vascular neurosurgery with a view to providing the practitioner with authoritative practical guidance that will assist in the management of difficult disease entities. While vascular neurosurgery has undergone unprecedented advances during the past decade, enabling safer and easier access to previously untreatable pathology, this progress has been accompanied by confusion as to what constitutes best, or even acceptable, practice. Here, experts in the field discuss the various tools available and explain how best to use them when confronted by different pathologies, drawing upon their personal experience. Each chapter focuses on a specific case that is discussed by two experienced surgeons; a third author then evaluates the case, highlighting the available evidence and pearls in the treatment of that particular disease. The authors have been carefully chosen to provide a truly balanced viewpoint on paradigms that they themselves use. They therefore have a sound understanding of the thought processes of surgeons when dealing with challenging diseases for which there may be no single correct path. Furthermore, they are well placed to identify not only appropriate uses of new treatment options and technologies but also circumstances in which their use is best avoided. The ultimate benefactor of this book will be the patient: our biases as physicians should never become a patient's morbidity.
This book aims to equip physiotherapists rehabilitation specialists and orthopedics to provide the best possible care for patients who have undergone surgery for a range of the more common shoulder pathologies, including fractures of the proximal third of the humerus, arthritis and prosthesis of glenohumeral joint, glenohumeral instability, rotator cuff lesions, other athletic injuries of the shoulder. It does so by presenting information on various aspects of the conditions and their surgical treatment and explaining clearly how these are directly relevant to rehabilitation. Among the topics covered are functional anatomy, imaging, treatment indications, surgical techniques and materials, peri- and postoperative complications, and communication with the patient. The book will promote effective teamwork, conducted using the same language, between the surgeon and the rehabilitator, and will facilitate the development and implementation of a rehabilitation program that has the best chance of effecting a speedy and complete recovery in each individual case.

This book comprehensively highlights modern emergency radiology diagnosis of the acute abdomen. In traumatic as well as non-traumatic emergencies, the clinical term "acute abdomen" refers to a variety of serious conditions in an often progressive clinical situation that call for an immediate diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. Today, thorough and rapid diagnostic radiological imaging is broadly available and the radiologist has gained a central role in patient handling in many emergency medicine departments. In addition to proficient radiological knowledge, communication and close co-operation among the various specialists involved are essential for successful patient management. Emergency radiologists must not only acquire a full understanding of the imaging modalities and technical requirements, but they should also have appropriate clinical knowledge of the various disorders in order to become valuable contributors to the therapy decision-making process. Emergency Radiology of the Abdomen provides a comprehensive review of the etiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation of acute abdominal conditions, both after traumatic events and in the non-traumatic setting. It focuses on imaging features and high-end emergency radiology that are indispensable for a timely management approach. Numerous high-quality images, diagrams, and easy-to-read tables are provided.

This book focuses on the features of pelvic pain in the different cancer diseases, the pain assessment tools, as well as the pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Pelvic cancer pain is a common and debilitating symptom, and pain control is a one among the main therapeutic goals throughout the duration of the disease. Because pelvic cancer pain due to primitive cancer, recurrence or metastasis is a complex clinical pathology, no single technique is often guaranteed to produce a complete pain relief. Thus, there are many treatment options, but in most cases a correct approach to pain control should be provided by a multidisciplinary team under the responsibility of a pain specialist coordinating several professionals. This book will aid several figures of practitioners, like anesthesiologists, oncologists or surgeons, in making the correct decisions in individual patients affected by cancer pain due to pelvic diseases.
This book addresses the most technically demanding but life-changing techniques in the treatment of conotruncal heart defects, as many repairs are performed on small infants. Each chapter reviews surgical anatomy (the anatomical classification that the surgeon is using), preoperative evaluation (the surgeon's check list before doing the surgery), and surgical techniques (clear drawings and videos, minimal text). It is an essential reference book for newly qualified surgeons when performing these complex cases. Conotruncal heart defects (CTHDs) are a group of complex congenital anomalies of the cardiovascular system that are a major cause of symptomatic cardiac disease at birth. They may account for up to 30% of all congenital cardiac anomalies. In many instances, patients with CTHD are symptomatic in the first days or weeks of life, with severe cyanosis or heart failure, requiring surgery in the neonatal period or in infancy. Most CHTD are today diagnosed in utero by fetal ultrasound. CHTDs are usually defined as malformations of the cardiac outflow tracts and presumably result in disturbance in the development of the cono-truncal apparatus of the embryonic heart, as well as of the primitive aortic arches. CTHDs include the following: truncus arteriosus, tetralogy of Fallot, double outlet right (or left) ventricle, transposition of the arteries, corrected transposition of the great arteries, interrupted aortic arch. The outcomes of CHTD surgery has considerably improved in the past 20 years, with quite fascinating innovations.
This book introduces surgical treatment of ankylosing spondylitis in details, aiming to help surgeons to make better planning and technique. In part 1, authors mainly introduce the osteotomy technique in AS and surgery planning. Moreover, the benefits in organ function brought by spinal correction are introduced in the same chapter. The hips are the most commonly effected diarthrodial joint in patients with AS, and the stiff hip causes poor life quality. In part 2, authors mainly introduce the skills of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in AS. For some patients both with kyphosis and hip involvement, how the authors make surgery planning. ln part 3, authors introduce their experiences and methods, including the advantages and disadvantages when do spinal correction first or THA first, and the principle of making spinal correction match with THA well.
Uterine myomas are the most common benign tumors in women, affecting the half of women and mostly in reproductive age. Myomas cause significant morbidity and are the single most common indication for hysterectomy around the world. Thus, myomas represent a major personal and public health concern worldwide. The diagnosis of fibroids can be established based on ultrasound and radiological imaging. Recent research on the genomics and molecular biology of myomas has enabled us to better understand the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of this benign tumor, but more remains to be discovered. In the clinical parterre, novel methods of conservative treatments have been developed to allow many women to keep their reproductive capacity and to save uterus, and more novel treatments are available on the horizon. For this topic, an outstanding group of worldwide experts have come together to provide a detailed discussion of basic research and clinical aspects of myomas. All the existing knowledge will be summarized in this book that can serve as a starting point for clinicians, young doctors, students, fellows and all researchers who want to read up on this disease. This book is devoted to myomas, covering both recent advances in our understanding of their behaviour, and an overview of the current options for their minimally invasive treatments, with endoscopy and new devices. As we learn more about the molecular, genetic and biology of myomas, we will be able to develop more innovative treatments.
