    Description:

     

    The perennial neurology classic, updated and expanded

    The sixth edition of Duus' classic Topical Diagnosis in Neurology builds on the clear, integrated presentation of anatomy, function, and disorders of the central nervous system that made it a success for almost over five decades, serving as a quick reference for practitioners and trainees alike. It elucidates the neuroanatomical pathways that lead to specific clinical syndromes, and demonstrates how comprehensive anatomical knowledge combined with a thorough neurological examination can help localize and categorize a lesion and arrive at a differential diagnosis.

    The time-tested logical, thematic structure with useful summaries, at the beginning of each chapter, and color-coded section headings enable readers to distinguish neuroanatomical from clinical material at a glance and enable efficient and time saving study.

    Features of the sixth edition:

    New tables and clinical case examples

    Improved descriptions of neuroanatomical/neurophysiological basics in the context of clinical symptoms

    Twenty-three new illustrations, to a total of more than 400 illustrations

    A wide range of study aids and clinical correlations that support the emphasis on integrative medicine in the current medical school curricula

    Topical Diagnosis in Neurology is an ideal reference for neurologists and neuroscientists who correlate neurological diseases with anatomical location to arrive at a diagnosis or understand a clinical syndrome. It is also an essential tool for trainees and advanced students who need a solid grounding in key neurofunctional relationships.

    Description:

     

     

    This book provides a useful guide for the management of complex abdominal wall problems from the perspective of a general surgeon, with sensible, practical clinical advice for the management of problems as they arise. Starting from managing the open abdomen and optimising the chances of achieving later definitive fascial closure, through to dealing with incisional and parastomal hernias throughout the abdomen. Expert guidance supported by an evidence-based review of the literature aids higher surgical trainees and consultant general surgeons who wish to expand their practice in this area. Focuses on the needs of the general surgeon Offers practical tips and advice for handling difficult cases Based on current best evidence Complemented by high quality images

    Description:

    This book provides students, practitioners, residents, and surgeons with an easily accessible and visual guide to successful methods of repairing more common fractures of dogs and cats. The concept allows clinicians to easily compare a fracture of a patient presented to them to the book and see what successful repairs were performed. There is also dialogue on the treatment options and special considerations. Importantly, follow-up radiographs provide insight into what type and rate of healing is to be expected.

    Description:

    This book provides detailed information on functional anatomy, physical examination, and clinical radiology of the knee with a view to enabling the clinician to identify the most suitable treatment approach to different knee joint pathologies. In addition, the arthroscopic treatment techniques most frequently employed in patients with these conditions are described, with presentation of numerous arthroscopic images detailing characteristic findings.  Knee joint pathologies today represent a significant challenge owing to the complexity of the injuries suffered, rising activity levels, and high patient expectations. A proper physical examination plays an important role in diagnosis. The surgeon who has the opportunity to conduct a clinical evaluation must fully understand the role of radiological evaluations, and assessment by a radiology expert is also necessary. In all cases, knowledge of the normal anatomy and its correlation with clinical and radiological findings is fundamental to correct diagnosis and treatment selection. Surgeons and trainees with an interest in knee joint pathologies will find this book to be an excellent, richly illustrated educational guide to the subject.

    Description:

    This book offers a self-contained review of the theoretical and practical basis of colorectal cancer screening. Colorectal cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide and represents a significant burden for both public health and health care systems. However, colorectal cancer deaths can be prevented using effective screening, and many countries and regions have launched population colorectal cancer screening programs. This book covers various essential aspects of colorectal cancer screening, including the epidemiology of colorectal cancer, the various screening and diagnostic tests or exams, quality issues in colorectal cancer screening, necessary infrastructures, the evaluation of effectiveness, and economic appraisals of screening programs. Focusing on organized screening, in which various quality indicators can easily monitored and effectiveness is more likely to be evaluated, it discusses the basics of screening theory and the natural history of colorectal neoplasms, to help readers understand the rationale behind cancer screening. Lastly, it features international consensus and guidelines on colorectal cancer screening to highlight the current trends in the field. This comprehensive book on recent technological developments and conceptual advances in colorectal cancer screening is a valuable resource for public health workers and clinicians alike.

    Description:

    This atlas pursues a problem-based rather than solely technique-oriented approach. Instead of focusing on open or closed rhinoplasty, it compares the relative merits of both approaches for specific anatomical problems and surgical techniques. The book incorporates a wealth of pre-,  peri-,  and postoperative images as well as short- and long-term results.Readers are not only introduced to ideal surgical outcomes and successful results; the author also shares his hands-on experience in revision cases. The chapters are clearly structured, and each explores a particular problem by giving an overview of the pathology and then offering possible solutions in a step-by-step approach. Individual chapters describe conditions of the radix, the dorsum, and the nasal tip and address technical questions like the indications for osteotomy and dorsum preservation. All these topics are accompanied by HD video clips using state-of-the-art Augmented Reality technology. Plastic surgeons and ENT doctors can directly and easily see the implications for their own clinical practice. As such, this book is not only a valuable addition to surgeons' bookshelves, but also offers direct support in the operating theatre.

    Description:

    This atlas, containing a wealth of clear operative images, is designed to enable trainee surgeons to visualise the surgical field for procedures specific to open colorectal surgery, thereby facilitating understanding and learning of surgical techniques and avoidance of intra- and postoperative complications. Step-by-step guidance is provided for a wide range of procedures to the colon, rectum, pelvic floor, anus and anal canal, in each case paying meticulous attention to surgical anatomy. The full range of potential indications for open surgery is considered, including benign and malignant tumours, inflammatory bowel disease, appendicitis, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, anal fistulas and rectal prolapse among others. Whenever considered necessary, additional line drawings are included to aid comprehension of particular steps in the surgery. Readers seeking to improve their understanding of surgical anatomy and how to perform these operative procedures will find the atlas to be an unparalleled source of information and assistance. A complementary book from the same authors focuses on laparoscopic colorectal surgery.

    Description:

     

    Virtually all aspects of the pathology in children are unique in pathogenesis and histogenesis from the moment of conception to adolescence whose range includes developmental anomalies to dysembryonic neoplasms. Stocker and Dehner’s Pediatric Pathology provides encyclopedic but very usable coverage of this complex subspecialty, detailing all major aspects of the pathologic anatomy of childhood disorders ranging from chromosomal syndromes and infections to forensic pathology. Upholding the standard of excellence established in previous editions, this thoroughly updated Fifth Edition offers the in-depth, richly illustrated guidance you need to confidently evaluate and dependably report your findings.
