MRI of Degenerative Disease of the Spine - A Case-Based Atlas (Hardcover, 2015 ed.): Paola D'Aprile MRI of Degenerative Disease of the Spine - A Case-Based Atlas (Hardcover, 2015 ed.)
Paola D'Aprile
R2,445 R2,184 Discovery Miles 21 840 Save R261 (11%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This richly illustrated case-based atlas thoroughly depicts the role of MR imaging in the assessment of patients presenting with pain due to degenerative disease of the spine and will serve as an excellent guide to differential diagnosis. Importantly, generic radicular compression is the main reason for the painful symptomatology in only a limited number of cases, and this book illustrates and emphasizes how various anatomic elements of the spine can be responsible. The imaging features of a range of disorders involving both the anterior and posterior elements of the spine are described, including active inflammatory osteochondrosis, atypical herniated discs, facet joint disorders, spondylolysis, and degenerative-inflammatory changes of the spinal ligaments and posterior perispinal muscles. Each example is supported by clinical data, and a series of unusual cases are also presented. MR study protocols include T2-weighted sequences with fat saturation and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted sequences with fat saturation to allow better visualization or highlighting of various inflammatory changes in the spine. Radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedists, and rehabilitation physicians will all find this atlas a valuable asset in their practice.

R2,881 R2,183 Discovery Miles 21 830 Save R698 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

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.

R3,120 R2,391 Discovery Miles 23 910 Save R729 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The treatment of humeral fractures is a complex issue and the source of considerable controversy. In the case of fractures of the proximal humerus, early range of motion is the main aim of treatment. If a fracture modifies the anatomy or function of the glenohumeral and scapulothoracic joints, the surgeon must adhere meticulously to treatment principles in order to ensure a satisfactory outcome. Humeral shaft fractures are frequent, accounting for 1% to 3% of all fractures in adults; while excellent functional results have been reported with nonoperative management, open reduction and internal fixation is preferred in specific clinical settings. In contrast, intra-articular fractures of the distal humerus are frequently complex and full functional recovery is difficult to achieve. This volume clearly explains the concepts that are central to an understanding of humeral fractures from the proximal to the distal tip. Indications for different forms of treatment, including nonsurgical, are presented in detail, and all of the commonly used fixation techniques are described with the help of high-quality illustrations. Further important aspects such as complications, rehabilitation, and treatment of sequelae are also fully considered. This book will be an invaluable and comprehensive aid for all surgeons who treat humeral fractures.

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. Most videos are less than 5 minutes long, and it should take less than 10 minutes to review each approach, including watching the video. Anatomy and Exposures of Spinal Nerves will effectively fill a gap caused by the absence of a peripheral nerve surgeon from many neurosurgery training programs.

Choosing an uncemented femoral prosthesis means first choosing a concept and to be effective, an operator has to have access to all the information that will allow them to reach the desired goals. This is the first step to be made.

The quality of a surgical procedure does not depend on the manual skills of the surgeon performing it, but on how he has prepared and performed the operation virtually before actually performing it. This is the second step.

An operating technique must be adapted to the chosen concept and the purpose of every surgical procedure must be clearly formulated and understood by the operator. This is the third step.

Every surgeon has to have a reliable and rigorous radiological method of analysis for evaluating overall results and which suggests ways of improving results."

This compact book provides step-by-step guidance in the approaches and techniques developed and currently used at the authors' center in Dusseldorf for the treatment of a variety of aneurysms. All of the described procedures are minimally invasive and of proven efficacy. In order to assist the reader in fully comprehending all aspects of the techniques, they are illustrated through clear graphics instead of complex photos and radiologic imaging. While the rapid development of endovascular treatment means that it is no longer necessary to employ microsurgery for difficult and hidden aneurysms, proficiency in microsurgery remains essential. For example, full mastery of microsurgical techniques is vital in order to treat middle cerebral and peripheral aneurysms efficiently and with minimal trauma. Minimal invasiveness and optimal cosmetic results have become critically important in enabling the microsurgical method to compete with the endovascular method. In documenting "tried and tested" procedures, this book will be invaluable for both established neurosurgeons and residents in neurosurgery.

Female genital malformations represent miscellaneous deviations from normal anatomy. With a prevalence of approximately 6% in the general population, they might be associated with health problems, potentially dangerous complications or poor reproductive outcome depending on the type and the degree of the anatomical abnormality. During the last two decades the better understanding of their pathogenesis, the availability of new non-invasive techniques for their diagnosis and the increased experience from their treatment have radically changed their management. A new, clinically oriented classification system has now been developed facilitating their evidence-based appraisal. It is a reality that the management of female genital malformations has changed rapidly during the last few years from an experience based and mainly descriptive field to a scientific evidence-based one. This book presents all uterine, cervical and vaginal anomalies in a systematic way and the new ESHRE/ESGE classification system utilised for their categorization. In addition, their embryogenesis and etiology are summarized. The diagnostic work-up of women with female genital malformations is reviewed in an evidence-based fashion and taking into account the availability of new non-invasive diagnostic methods. The treatment strategy and the therapeutic alternatives to restore health and reproductive problems associated with their presence are critically reviewed.

This is a concise, up-to-date reference on anesthesia for urological surgery. Urological anesthesia is not recognized as a specialty, and a majority of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists will provide anesthesia for these patients. Advances in urological procedures, the advent of treatment of patients with strong anticoagulant and antiplatelet medications, and the demographics of urology patients (many of whom are young or elderly) present challenges for the anesthesiologist and have necessitated changes in anesthesia practice. The last volume on this topic was published in 2000, and the time is right for a fresh presentation of contemporary expertise in anesthesia for urological surgery.

The book provides a brief review of renal physiology and pharmacology then addresses anesthesia for each major group of urological procedures (e.g., endoscopic, office-based, laparoscopic and robotic, nephrolithotripsy, renal transplantation, etc.) and in special populations, including the geriatric patient, the pediatric patient, and the pregnant patient. Separate chapters discuss the unique challenges of positioning the patient, and of managing the patient taking anticoagulant and antiplatelet medication, and the chapter on pain management addresses common and important perioperative concerns.

Although muscular diseases are a huge and heterogeneous group, in most cases of progressive disease the result is focal or general muscular weakness that presents as an unspecific symptom. Imaging techniques that offer differential diagnostic clues are therefore urgently needed. Despite this, MRI has to date often been assigned a subsidiary role in the diagnostic work-up of these diseases owing to the frequent inability of routine MRI protocols to detect pathognomonic findings. This situation is changing with the advent of modern MRI techniques that offer deeper insights into surrogate pathophysiologic parameters, such as muscular microcirculation, sodium homeostasis, energy and lipid metabolism, and muscle fiber architecture. Much higher levels of acceptance and demand by clinicians can be anticipated for these new techniques in the near future, and radiologists will have to face up to the increasing value of MRI of the skeletal musculature. In this book, recognized experts from around the world provide a comprehensive overview of the value of cutting-edge MRI for the assessment of normal and diseased skeletal muscle. A range of aspects are covered, from the general role of MRI in imaging the skeletal musculature, including in comparison with ultrasonography, through to the current value of MRI in the diagnostic work-up of different diseases. In addition, several chapters present research findings in respect of modern morphological and functional MRI techniques for assessment of the skeletal musculature and provide examples of the added value provided by these techniques when evaluating muscular diseases.
