This volume provides the first comprehensive review of the surgical anatomy of the groin in over 30 years. The text also provides a detailed review of considerations for all disciplines involved with the management of neoplasms potentially involving the inguinal lymph node basin as well as describing, in detail, the complications which can occur if one's understanding of these issues is limited. Epidemiology and the historical context in the evolution of our understanding of this anatomic area is covered along with lymphedema, one of the most concerning risks of groin surgery. Additionally, a thorough discussion of the management of all malignancies known to affect the inguinal region and quality of life is discussed. Malignancies of the Groin will be an invaluable text for any surgeon who operates on diseases of the skin, genitourinary tract, soft tissue or gynecologic tract. It will be an important adjunct for the radiation oncologist and the reconstructive surgeon and be eq ually useful for nurses, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners and other clinicians who care for patients undergoing treatment for malignancies involving the groin. The editors have compiled an international group of thought leaders in their respective disciplines to provide a broad ranging context for many of the issues that concern clinicians managing diseases affecting the inguinal region. This multidisciplinary array of authors will allow for cross-pollination of ideas from one field to another.
Despite the rising popularity of the minimally invasive laparoscopic option, open nephron-sparing surgery is still seen by many experts as the 'gold standard' for open surgery for kidney tumors and should remain the first choice for many patients. This challenges the idea that less-invasive therapies are always more desirable than open surgery. While laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery may be a more attractive option for treating small, easily accessible kidney tumors, for large tumors this is not always the case. Nephron-sparing surgery is a outstanding text that analyses all forms of surgery, open or laparoscopic, as well as providing a backdrop on renal cell carcinoma in general, and the complications and outcomes following surgery that both surgeon and patient will face. Featuring 100 colour photos, the text includes chapters on: Imaging renal masses: current status Open nephron-sparing surgery for renal cell carcinoma Minimally invasive approaches for renal cell carcinoma: an overview Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy Controversies in nephron-sparing surgery Renal cell carcinoma: long-term outcome following nephron-sparing surgery Dr Sasidharan and Professor Soloway have created a superb text covering all aspects of nephron-sparing surgery that should provide excellent guidance for all those who are just beginning to perform nephron-sparing surgery or act as an aide-memoire for those familiar with nephron-sparing surgery.
Practical and user-friendly, this book is a simple and straightforward clinical guide to understanding the common problems and pathologies seen in the patellofemoral joint, clearly outlining the most prevalent problems encountered and highlighting the latest surgical techniques. Divided into two major sections on patellofemoral pain and instability, it discusses etiology, making the correct diagnosis, and how to manage these problems in both adults as well as in the skeletally immature, using outcomes-based approaches for each condition. Part I covers topics such as anterior knee pain, malalignment and overload syndromes, and arthritis, while part II describes conditions such as acute patellar dislocation, recurrent instability and how to avoid complications. Both parts also include chapters on imaging strategies for the knee. Providing the most current research on these topics in a field that is rapidly changing and evolving, and explaining the treatments and their support in the current literature, Patellofemoral Pain and Instability is an up-to-date, straightforward resource for orthopedic surgeons and residents, sports medicine specialists, and any clinical professional treating conditions of the knee.
Radical prostatectomy involves the surgical removal of the entire prostate gland and the seminal vesicles. Recently the open operation has been challenged by laparoscopic and robotic techniques.

The editors and their distinguished team of contributors from around the world offer the reader their guidance based on personal experience and best surgical practice. Radical Prostatectomy is required reading for all those performing radical prostatectomy by open, laparoscopic or robotic techniques.
The New York Times bestselling author of Better and Complications reveals the surprising power of the ordinary checklist. We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies--neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple ninety-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third. In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds. An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential reading for anyone working to get things right.

Increasing evidence suggests that particularly in high-risk patients, endovascular solutions offer substantial advantages compared to vascular surgical procedures. Nevertheless, growing numbers of procedures are associated with an increased incidence of complications. Knowledge of specific complications in different vessel areas will support the interventionist in preventing such adverse events and if necessary, provide considerable reassurance if such complications need to be resolved. In Complications in Peripheral Vascular Interventions, typical and atypical complications are described for all peripheral vessel areas, and methods for how to handle these events are outlined. The book is divided in two parts. Part 1 reviews general aspects on complications in peripheral interventions, and Part II covers the specific vessel areas. Each chapter on the specific vessel area includes Introduction to the frequency and kind of complications in this vessel area Factors identifying high-risk patients for these complications Complications of specific interventional steps and tools Endovascular techniques to resolve these complications Methods to avoid complications Summary Checklist for emergency equipment Offering practical tips for the interventionist in the cath lab, high-volume interventionists share their experiences by reviewing complicated cases and outlining different strategies used in real-life scenarios.

This book is an up-to-date and comprehensive guide to all the common thyroid disorders that may be seen by internists, endocrinologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and endocrine surgeons. While the fundamentals of thyroid hormone function and regulation in health and disease are well covered, the primary focus is on the clinical approach to thyroid disease, with detailed coverage of both initial diagnosis and management and the role of imaging. Because most endocrine diseases are chronic and lifelong, special emphasis is placed on long-term management and the common pitfalls that may be encountered by the clinician. The editors are internationally acknowledged leaders in the field of thyroid disease and have gathered an outstanding team of authors, all of whom are also highly expert in their respective areas, but who, equally importantly, write in a clear and lucid style. The numerous isotope scan and ultrasonographic images ensure that the book will serve as a valuable reference atlas to which the physician will return again and again.
