    Although benign biliary disease is an area in which many surgeons have experience, there are many nuances to providing the highest quality of surgical care.  The biliary anatomy is unique but presents with anatomical variances and can be distorted by benign pathology.  Biliary surgery has been one of the areas where minimally invasive techniques were first applied in the late 1980s.  However, surgical technique has continued to evolve due to acquisition of advanced minimal surgical skills and improvement in surgical technology.  The expertise, sage, and knowledge of the members of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgery (SAGES) have prioritized the creation of this manual on modern biliary surgery. This manual will provide the standard for the current state of biliary surgery in the 21st century. The SAGES Manual of Biliary Surgery will align with the new SAGES University Masters program. The Manual supplements the Masters Program Biliary Surgery Pathway. Its goal is to help the surgeon progress from the competent to the proficient and finally to the mastery level.   Both for the surgical trainee and senior surgeon, this guidebook will also give insight into modern evaluation and management.  The highlights will emphasize what is both feasible and safe from a minimally invasive approach in biliary surgery. The concept of Safe Cholecystectomy will be defined and expounded on in detail.  The difficult cholecystectomy will be given ample coverage to include management of intraoperative bile duct injury, indications and techniques of subtotal cholecystectomy, and special attention to intraoperative diagnostic imaging that serve as adjuncts, including cholangiograpy, ultrasound, as well as indocyanine green biliary fluorescence.  We will review the updated international Tokyo guidelines for acute cholecystitis.  Furthermore, the evolution of treatment of choledocohlithiasis has evolved the most in recent years, and thus requires an extensive discussion of the non-operative and operative management of bile duct stones. This text will serve as an important contribution to the medical literature sponsored by SAGES, an international leading authority in gastrointestinal surgery with a keen interest in safe and proficient biliary surgery.  Leaders in the field of biliary surgery will impart their insight and considerable experience in the chapters planned for this manual.  The intent for this manual is to be the cited resource for high quality and applicable knowledge for the treatment of benign biliary disease.

    About this book

    This edition of the SAGES Manual of Hernia Surgery aligns with the current version of the new SAGES University MASTERS Program Hernia Surgery pathway. This manual serves as a curriculum for participants in the MASTERS Program as well as a modern text on hernia surgery for all learners. Hernia surgery is one of the fastest developing fields in general surgery today. There have been rapid advancements in hernia techniques in recent years, making most prior texts on the subject obsolete. These advancements involve significant evolution in both the techniques and strategies for hernia repairs, as well as the tools used to achieve these means.

    This text thoroughly addresses the multiple component separation techniques and options for locations of mesh repairs. It also discusses the revolution of hernia repair being facilitated by robotic surgery, which allows increased access to minimally invasive techniques for surgeons and thus increased access to minimally invasive surgical repairs for patients. This manual will be a valuable resource for interested surgeons to understand the variety of potential approaches to individual hernias, and to individually tailor the care of the hernia patient.


    “This will be used by trainees at all levels ‐‐ residents and fellows ‐‐ as well as practicing surgeons who wish to expand or solidify their knowledge in the field. … This is an extremely valuable and unique contribution. There is, currently, a plethora of books about hernia repair, but there is nothing like this book.” (Carol ScottConner, Doody's Book Reviews, May 31, 2019)

    This handbook is intended for doctors working in this ? eld. It belongs to the pocket of a student, house of? cer, resident, medical of? cer or generalist consultant, who will ? rst see the patient. The clinician needs to suspect at least one disease process as a starting point, because the book is ordered alphabetically according to diagnoses. From this point there are both surgical and imaging differential diagnoses listed. These can also be looked at within the book. For the clinician there is a dedicated page to assist with clinical symptoms and signs, alternative diagnoses and urgency of the radiological investigation, based on important information that is needed from imaging. With regard to imaging, there is a list of primary, follow-on and alternative investi- tions appropriate for the suspected diagnosis. There are lists of imaging features with s- porting images, tips and radiological differential diagnoses. The alphabetic organization makes for a jump to the next suspected diagnosis with ease to ? nd something more suitable for the current patient’s needs.

              From the Back Cover

    Written by an international team of experts, and endorsed by the Asia Pacific Hernia Society (APHS), the main objective of this book is to provide and promote best practices in hernia surgery. It is intended for those surgeons who are already performing hernia repair surgeries, helping them update their surgical know-how in a landscape of rapidly improving techniques. Covering all the commonly performed procedures, from tissue repair to mesh repair (both conventional and laparoscopic), it presents all currently available techniques in detail, addressing the needs of younger and more experienced surgeons alike. Each surgical procedure is explained step by step and supported with high-resolution serial intra-operative photographs and line diagrams. While the majority of the text covers the surgical anatomy, classification, pathophysiology, and imaging techniques for hernias, a closing chapter on future directions introduces readers to the latest and emerging techniques and approaches.

    Written in a unique and innovative style, this book presents pediatric surgery in an interactive clinical context. Each chapter is built upon a specific disease or group of diseases, beginning with a typical case, presented interactively, just as it would be in encountered in clinical practice. These are actual cases that have been encountered by the author and are likely to be managed on any pediatric surgical service. The discussion that follows presents the most relevant issues pertaining to the topic, drawing on the index case, as well as multiple other cases that depict the entire spectrum of the disease or anomaly.

    The carefully selected suggested readings emphasize sentinel papers, high-quality reviews, and the best and most recent evidence published on the subject. A large number of illustrations help bring the clinical concepts to light. A number of high-quality videos provide a dynamic atlas of common procedures. The book is  useful to the entire range of pediatric surgical trainees and practitioners, from the medical student or resident rotating on pediatric surgery, to the fellow preparing for certification, to the seasoned surgeon looking for an update on a particular subject or preparing for recertification.

    A large number of other physicians will find this book very useful, including general surgeons who evaluate and treat childhood surgical diseases, paediatricians and pediatric hospitalists who co-manage patients with surgeons, and obstetricians, pathologists, and radiologists who work closely with pediatric surgeons.

     Provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the current landscape of systemic and liver-directed therapy for malignant liver tumors Provides new insight into novel and evolving therapies in the areas of surgical technique and liver-directed arterial based and ablative therapies Written by experts in their fields


    About this book

    The incidence of primary and metastatic liver tumors is rising and the therapeutic armamentarium for these tumors is expanding at a rapid pace. Surgery remains the primary treatment modality for these tumors. With improvements in our perioperative management and operative techniques a larger proportion of patients are able to undergo potentially curative liver surgery. In addition, indications and criteria for liver transplantation for both primary and metastatic liver tumors are constantly expanding. Unfortunately, many patients are not amendable to surgical resection or liver transplantation and therefore alternative liver-directed therapies are routinely being implemented as part of complex multidisciplinary treatment models.   However, these models are continually evolving as these regional therapeutic options continue to expand.

    New embolization agents and techniques, as well as, improvements in radiation delivery, are all evolving in the background of improvement in systemic and targeted therapy options for these tumors. 
    This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the current state of liver-directed therapy for malignant liver tumors. The book will serve as a valuable resource for not only surgeons and clinicians but for researchers with an interest in malignant liver tumors.  The book focuses on the therapeutic approach to primary and metastatic tumors providing an up-to-date review on surgical liver anatomy and new imaging techniques as well as patient selection and technical consideration for resection and transplantation. In addition, the book provides new insight into novel and evolving therapies in the areas of transarterial therapy such as: (i) bland embolization, (ii) chemoembolization, and (iii) radioembolization; as well as new radiation techniques including SBRT and proton therapy.  

    Furthermore, the expanding role of hepatic artery infusion therapy in primary malignant tumors is highlighted. Finally, integration of all these regional therapy options with upcoming and evolving systemic and targeted therapy regimens are integrated and discussed.   This book will serve as a very useful resource for clinicians and researchers managing and treating patients with these challenging malignancies.  It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.

    This unique guide describes colorectal surgery procedures using medical terminology and anatomical terms originating from embryology.

    In the last decade, laparoscopic procedures in gastrointestinal surgery have been enhanced and their safety has significantly improved. With the number of cases of colorectal cancer surgery increasing and laparoscopic surgery no longer considered a specialized surgery, the recognition of the correct anatomy is vital in these procedures. Unfortunately, however, the understanding of clinical anatomy is frequently separate from that of basic surgical concepts. Initially, the dissecting layer should be presumed to derive from the fascial anatomy based on embryological recognition. Furthermore, the techniques currently being used by surgeons should be described in sufficient detail and the appropriate anatomical terms should always be used. In view of this, this valuable monograph benefits gastrointestinal surgeons and general surgeons who are involved in the treatment of colorectal cancer.

    This volume is the product of the author's long experience with melanomas and sarcomas and to a lesser but significant degree with upper gastrointestinal cancers, colorectal and breast cancers. As such, it offers a “hands-on” practical guide to approaching complex soft-tissue tumors and for performing more extensive tumor resections based on over 40 years of surgical experience. It provides important details about the positioning of patients, incision types, and exposure which can be of paramount importance in the resection of certain tumors. The book contains important general surgical principles for approaching tumors in a variety of locations but also offers the detail necessary for the safe and oncologically sound resection of these malignancies. Moreover, this operative atlas contains specific information for procedures which are not as commonly encountered in surgical training, but can be invaluable in the management of patients with locally aggressive tumors, such as hemipelvectomy and its variants, sacral resections, and forequarter amputation. Through the use of multiple detailed illustrations, Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology serves as a valuable resource to the general surgeon or surgical oncologist in the operative management of patients with cancer in the abdomen, retroperitoneum, pelvis or extremities.

    This masterful book from top experts provides clinical insights on reverse shoulder arthroplasty gleaned from hands-on refinement of shoulder replacement techniques. Years of significant biomechanical and clinical research yielded invaluable knowledge that led to important improvements in functional outcome and implant durability. Among these refinements were stronger polyethylene derivatives, better ingrowth technology, and improved connection devices. As the durability and longevity of implant technology increased, younger active patients became suitable candidates for this procedure. In fact, RSA has played a pivotal role in making shoulder arthroplasty the fastest growing implant technology.

    In the first two sections, the authors take the reader through the history and evolution of RSA, followed by step-by-step surgical techniques for specific injuries and conditions. The next three sections discuss past and recent outcomes, complications, and rehabilitation. The last section covers special considerations including patient specific instrumentation, convertible humeral and glenoid components, and the future potential of stemless humeral technology.

    Key Features

    • The latest trends in patient-specific components, guide systems, and instrument design
    • The use of RSA for rotator cuff repair, shoulder arthritis, and acute and complex fractures
    • In-depth discussion of techniques to improve deltoid function, avoid impingement, and increase implant longevity
    • Clinical pearls on how to recognize and handle complications that occur: instability, infection, scapular notching, component loosening, glenoid and humeral bone loss, and RSA failure
    • High quality videos and 300 superb illustrations further delineate techniques

    This book is a practical resource that enables learning complex procedures, putting them into practice, and handling complications should they arise. It is an essential tool for all orthopaedic surgeons who treat shoulder conditions.

    About this book

    This book is devoted to all the aspects of pediatric minimally invasive surgery and is written under the patronage of the European Society of Pediatric Endoscopic Surgery (ESPES) with the participation of leading international experts on Pediatric MIS. Comprising more than 50 chapters, the book begins with an introductory section describing the general and technical aspects of MIS approaches including laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, retroperitoneoscopy and robotic surgery. The main part of the book is divided into five subsections, each of which focuses on a specific system: thorax, abdomen, urology, gynecology and varia.

    For each subsection, the book examines several pathologies, accurately describing their clinical and diagnostic aspects and providing detailed information on the operative techniques, tips and tricks used in their treatment. Further, the book addresses potential complications in MIS and better ways to manage and prevent them.

    The volume will be of interest for pediatric surgeons, pediatric urologists or other professionals that need to access accurate descriptions of the MIS approaches adopted for the different surgical pathologies. At the same time, it addresses the needs of novices, including trainees, looking for general information on the management of the various diseases encountered in the pediatric population.

    This book describes the surgical bariatric procedures most frequently performed worldwide and examines their evolution in recent years both within Italy and internationally. For each operation, indications, the surgical technique, potential complications, and the outcomes with respect to weight and obesity-associated comorbidities are presented. In view of the significant failure rate revealed by studies on the long-term results of bariatric surgery, the problem of weight regain and revision surgery are also discussed in detail, covering the different types of revision, conversion to other procedures, and the main outcomes. In addition, individual chapters focus on selected topics of importance. The role of bariatric surgery in the cure of type 2 diabetes (“diabetes surgery”) is discussed and the debate over the significance of gastroesophageal reflux disease and hiatal hernia for choice of procedure is summarized. Finally, the most common endoluminal procedures, which have been gaining in importance, are described and other bariatric operations, outlined.
