Comprehensive yet practical, this book is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on both major and minor conditions affecting the pediatric cervical spine. Written by eminent orthopedic and spinal surgeons, it provides a systematic approach based on traditional categories: anatomy, pathology, imaging, and both surgical and non-surgical treatment strategies. Utilizing the most up-to-date evidence, the subject is approached in three main sections. The basic science of the pediatric cervical spine - anatomy, biomechanics, imaging and diagnostic techniques - is covered in part I. The clinical aspects of pediatric cervical spine disorders are discussed in part II, including trauma, inflammatory conditions, infections, tumors, congenital anomalies and others. The medical and surgical treatment of these disorders comprises part III, presenting conservative techniques such as immobilization and surgical techniques such as arthrodesis. Complications and other related pediatric cervical conditions are also covered in this last section. Written by an international panel of experts and skillfully edited by leaders in the field, The Management of Children's Cervical Spine Disorders is a unique and definitive resource for pediatric orthopedic spine surgeons, neurologists and all medical professionals treating these delicate conditions.
This book focuses specifically on the management of cardiovascular disease in elderly patients with particular frailties and in the "oldest old". It is clearly explained how treatment in these patients differs from that in patients in their seventies who respond well to therapies and do not present frailties or organ failures. Although not young, the latter patients can be treated almost like any other patient, according to established guidelines. In contrast, the frail, compromised elderly and the oldest old require specific measures that target their needs, including with respect to underlying renal conditions. The book considers all those pathologies that have a high prevalence in the general population, explaining advanced treatment concepts and all aspects of assessment. Key clinical points are highlighted, and the text is supplemented with numerous informative figures and tables. The authors are respected experts, for the most part geriatric physicians, and the book is especially addressed to cardiologists, who may lack the described targeted information and treatment tools.

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.
This comprehensive, up-to-date textbook of modern cervical spine surgery describes the standard and advanced techniques recommended by the Cervical Spine Research Society - European Section (CSRS-E) with a view to enabling both young and experienced surgeons to further develop their skills and improve their surgical outcomes. Success in cervical spine surgery depends on the surgeon's awareness of the main challenges posed by distinct cervical spine diseases, theoretical understanding of treatment concepts, and knowledge of technical options and the related potential for complications. It is the surgeon who has to merge theory and practice to achieve the desired outcome, in each case appraising the details of surgical anatomy and weighing the challenges and complications associated with a surgical technique against the skills that he or she possesses. This excellently illustrated book, written by key opinion makers from the CSRS-E with affiliated surgeons as co-authors, presents the full range of approaches and techniques and clearly identifies indications, precautions, and pitfalls. It will be a superb technical reference for all cervical spine surgeons, whether orthopaedic surgeons or neurosurgeons.
