    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)

    • Broadens readers’ understanding of all key aspects of pediatric minimally invasive surgery
    • Describes potential complications in MIS and better ways to manage them
    • Written under the patronage of the ESPES

    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.

    ·                  More than a thousand figures, encompassing both normal and pathological imaging

    ·                  Unique images in rare and unusual conditions in fetal medicine

    ·                  An useful guide for obstetricians, gynecologists and pediatricians

    About this book

    The present book is an illustrated guide on fetal medicine, including a wealth of normal and pathological/malformations ultrasound images, throughout the whole pregnancy. Thus, the book intends to fill two gaps in once:

    1.                 The lack of a material discussing the basic principles of fetal ultrasound, which are the basement for a more efficient learning in fetal medicine.

    2.                 The need for a thorough approach in fetal medicine, presenting both normal and pathological imaging, allowing a detailed evaluation of clinical conditions of importance in prenatal care and follow up.   

    The Atlas of Ultrasound Imaging is an up to date guide to all obstetricians, gynecologists and pediatricians who intend to upgrade their knowledge in fetal medicine, as well as to any other professional, professor, student or research interested in fetal ultrasound.

    Neurosurgery is a rapidly developing and technically demanding branch of surgery that requires a detailed knowledge of the basic neuro-sciences and a thorough clinical approach. The Oxford Textbook of Neurological Surgery is an up-to-date, objective and readable text that covers the full scope of neurosurgical practice. It is part of the Oxford Textbooks in Surgery series, edited by Professor Sir Peter Morris.

    The book is split into 20 overarching sections (Principles of Neurosurgery, Neuro-oncology of Intrinsic Tumours; Extra-axial Tumours and Skull Lesions; Cerebro-Pontine Angle Tumours; Sellar and Supra-Sellar Tumours; Posterior Fossa Tumours; Pineal tumours; Uncommon Tumours and Tumour Syndromes; Neurotrauma and Intensive Care; Vascular Neurosurgery; Principles of Spinal Surgery; Spinal Pathology; Spinal Trauma; Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Functional Neurosurgery; Epilepsy; Paediatric Neurosurgery; Neurosurgery for Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders and Neurosurgical Infection).

    Each section takes a dual approach with, 'Generic Surgical Management' chapters that focus on specific clinical problems facing the neurosurgeon (e.g. sellar/supra-sellar tumour, Intradural Spina Tumours etc.) and 'Pathology-Specific' chapters (e.g. Glioma, Meningeal Tumours, Scoliosis and Spinal Deformity, Aneurysm etc.). Where appropriate, this division provides the reader with easily accessible information for both clinical problems which present in a regional fashion and specific pathologies. The generic chapters cover aspects such as operative approaches, neuroanatomy and nuances.

    Specifically each chapter in the book incorporates several strands. Firstly the fundamental neuroscience (anatomy, pathology, genetics etc.) that underlies the clinical practice. Secondly, a review of the requisite clinical investigations (e.g. angiography, electrodiagnostics, radiology). Thirdly, a thorough evidence based review of clinical practice. Following this a consideration of the key debates and controversies in the field with 'pro-' and 'con-' sections (e.g. minimally invasive spine surgery, microsurgical treatment of aneurysms) is provided. A summary of the key papers and clinical scales relevant to neurosurgery form the concluding part.

    The book is a 'one-stop' text for trainees and consultants in neurosurgery, residents, those preparing for sub-specialty exams and other professionals allied to surgery who need to gain an understanding of the field. It acts as both a point of reference to provide a focussed refresher for the experienced neurosurgeon as well as a trusted training resource.

    There are approximately 4 million newborns annually in the United States, including 400,000 infants born preterm.  This care occurs in nurseries of all acuity levels, sizes, and regions across the country and is provided by a variety of providers, including pediatricians, family practice doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.  The most common complication during the newborn period is suspected or proven infection – either those acquired during the delivery itself or before delivery in the womb.  Indeed, 4 of the 8 most commonly-prescribed medications in newborns annually are antibiotics. Therefore, these providers must all be knowledgeable about the clinical presentation, epidemiology, and approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neonatal infections.  However, many of these nurseries do not have convenient access to pediatric infectious disease consultation or support, and would benefit from a convenient reference guide.

    This book effectively and succinctly covers the pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, approach to diagnosis and treatment, and important aspects of preventative care for the most frequently encountered neonatal and congenital infections.  The first section discusses common neonatal infections (i.e., those acquired during or after delivery), including sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, and other focal infections.  The second section covers the most frequently encountered congenital infections (i.e., those acquired via the placenta while the fetus is still in-utero).  Finally, the concluding section discusses the basics of infection prevention in the nursery setting, including general principles of infection prevention, how to apply those principles to families, and how to manage a suspected outbreak of infection within a nursery.

    This book is a unique contribution to the field. Existing texts such as the AAP Red Book fold neonatal infections in within chapters on a given pathogen, but the information is difficult to find and access quickly.  By covering neonatal and congenital infections thoroughly while still keeping each section clear and concise, this Handbook will be a valuable resource for the busy nursery provider.

    • Presents newly discovered mechanisms and concepts which explain the transition from hypertension to heart failure • Includes a special part regarding the diagnostic of heart failure in hypertension patients with a state of the art review on the role of advanced imaging techniques • Approaches newly developed pharmacological and invasive treatments of hypertensive heart failure About this book This book explains how hypertension affects 20-50% of the adult population in developed countries. Heart failure is the result of the hypertension's effects on the heart and it represents a growing public health problem. In this context the international scientific community is continuously struggling to develop better strategies in screening, diagnosing and treating hypertension and its deleterious effects. Thus, this field is continuously changing, with new important information being added constantly. This volume will offer both insights into the intimate mechanisms of transition from hypertension to heart failure and clinical practice advice on the prevention and treatment of heart failure in hypertensive population. The mechanisms which explain the progression from hypertension to heart failure will be also covered exhaustively by offering two chapters referring to the diagnosis of heart failure in hypertensive population and one regarding echocardiography which is the most frequently used imaging method in clinical practice. The reader will be also provided with information on cardiovascular magnetic resonance which has the unique advantage of differentiating hypertensive heart failure from other pathologies associated with increased myocardial thickness. This book is a useful tool for clinicians but also to the research community interested in heart failure and consequences of hypertension on heart who want to be up-to-date with the new developments in the field. Reviews “This book is suitable for large number of healthcare professionals in different specialties who interact with hypertensive patients in various stages of disease. … This book provides comprehensive yet clear insights into the intimate mechanisms of the transition from hypertension to heart failure and a clinical guide to prevention and treatment in this population. The expert authors have presented a learning platform with up-to-date new developments in this field for wide range of clinicians.” (Rikin Sanjay Kadakia, Doody's Book Reviews, August 02, 2019) Table of contents (25 chapters) • Epidemiological Aspects (Prevalence and Risk of Heart Failure Related to Blood Pressure) Pages 3-11 Wohlfahrt, Peter (et al.) • Genetics of Hypertension and Heart Failure Pages 15-29 Padmanabhan, Sandosh (et al.) • Blood Pressure Variability and Blood Pressure Load Pages 31-58 Parati, Gianfranco (et al.) • Hemodynamic Mechanisms Pages 59-70 Kuznetsova, Tatiana (et al.) • Neural Mechanisms Pages 71-86 Hering, Dagmara (et al.) • Natriuretic Peptides Pages 87-100 Volpe, Massimo (et al.) • Renal Mechanisms and Heart Failure Pages 101-121 Jelaković, Bojan (et al.) • Heart Failure and Metabolic Factors Pages 123-133 Nilsson, Peter M.

    Illustrated throughout with practical algorithms and photographic figures ? Includes practical chapters designed to imprint the information memorably ? Designed from the guidelines to expand knowledge to the more detailed practicalities of managing individual patients ? Uniquely based around picking strategies for patients with specific cardiovascular issues About this book This book fulfills the need for practical guidance among all professionals involved in the management of these patients, from residents and fellows of cardiology and internal medicine, surgical teams, physiotherapy professionals, critical care physicians and family medicine practitioners. The thoroughly updated content takes into account recent developments in cardiac rehabilitation, and incorporates practical advice on how to use guidelines in clinical practice. There will be one new chapter on patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy and all the others will be updated to keep up-to-date with the guidelines and current practice. Cardiac rehabilitation is of key importance to ameliorate long-term morbidity and mortality resulting from cardiac diseases and events. However, much of the current literature is dense, unwelcoming and academic in style and format. For those physicians understanding the scope of cardiac rehabilitation there is a need to distill the guidelines and various management options available to them into a concise practical manual. Up until now, all references have looked at the general options, but there is definite need to investigate the practicalities of individual patient groups. About the authors Univ. Prof. Dr. Josef Niebauer, MBA is a specialist in internal medicine, cardiology and sports medicine. He heads the Institute of preventive and rehabilitative sports medicine at the Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg and is also responsible for the Olympic Centre Salzburg-Rif.
