This third edition text provides a completely revised and updated new version of this unique, modern, practical text that covers the strategic evaluation, specific approaches, and detailed management techniques utilized by expert colorectal surgeons caring for patients with complex problems-whether they result from underlying colorectal disease or from complications arising from previous surgical therapy. The format follows that of both a ´´how to´´ manual as well as an algorithm-based guide to allow the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategy. By making use of evidence-based recommendations, each chapter includes not only background information and diagnostic/therapeutic guidelines, but also provides a narrative by the author on his/her operative technical details and perioperative ´´tips and tricks´´ that they utilize in the management of these complex surgical challenges. Distinctive to this book, is the reliance on experts in the field including past presidents of the ASCRS, as well as multiple other national and internationally recognized surgeons, to lend their personal insight into situations where data may be more sparse, but individual and collective experience is paramount to making sound decisions and thereby optimizing patient outcomes. The text includes chapters on the assessment of risk and methods utilized to minimize perioperative complications. In addition, it incorporates sections covering the medical and surgical therapies for abdominal, pelvic and anorectal disease. Moreover, the technical challenges of managing complications resulting from the original or subsequent operations is addressed. The underlying focus throughout the text is on providing pragmatic and understandable solutions that can be readily implemented by surgeons of varying experience to successfully treat complex colorectal problems. However, it also goes beyond the technical aspects of colorectal surgery and includes special sections highlighting the essence of a surgeon; covering aspects involving the medical-legal, ethical, and economic challenges confronting surgeons. Throughout the text, each author provides an ongoing narrative of his/her individual surgical techniques along with illustrations and diagrams to ´´personally´´ take the reader through the crucial steps of the procedure, and key points of patient care inherent to that topic. Additionally, where appropriate, links to online videos give the reader an up-front look into technical aspects of colorectal surgery.
´´This widely used, classroom-tested text continues to be an ideal introduction to image processing in medicine. Updated and expanded, this edition gives more attention to the subject of color space and includes more examples from radiology, internal medicine, surgery, and radiation therapy. The book addresses problems with handling voxels, 3D data sets, spatial transforms in three dimensions, and data fusion. It shows how to visualize large data sets from modern CT systems in radiology, manufacture patient-specific prostheses for orthopedic surgery, plan dose distributions in radiation oncology, incorporate multimodal image data for therapy monitoring in internal medicine, and perform computer-aided neurosurgical interventions. Examples are given throughout and an accompanying CD-ROM includes programming techniques in MATLAB´´--Provided by publisher.
The latest edition of this pioneering text atlas incorporates all the advances that have taken place in the field over the last decade. Minimally invasive procedures are now established as the method of choice for many applications in equine orthopaedic surgery, not only as an aid to diagnosis, but also as an alternative to conventional surgery. The text has been completely revised and massively expanded to reflect the rapid growth of this specialty, and covers many important new applications and techniques. This latest edition also features new, full colour, high resolution images throughout, including digital video. It remains the most comprehensive reference available, yet still retains the established text-atlas format, and continues to provide readers with both authoritative comment and practical guidance on all aspects of this important technique.
Venous disorders are extremely common in clinical practice, and recent years have seen a number of changes in the treatment of these conditions. This book covers the advances in our understanding and the management of venous disorders - both superficial and deep. It includes up-to-date reviews on the hemodynamics of venous circulation in the lower limbs, deep venous reflux, novel biomarkers in deep vein thrombosis, post thrombotic syndrome, infra-popliteal DVT, relevance of wave length in laser treatment of varicose veins, pelvic congestion syndrome, May-Thurner syndrome, nut cracker syndrome, endothermal heat-induced thrombosis, recurrent varicose veins, and venous trauma. It also discusses important topics such as one-stop vein clinics, alternatives for venous ulcer treatment, venous anatomy, therapeutic options in lymphedema, nerve damage during endovenous thermal ablation, newer oral anticoagulants, compression therapy for venous ulcer, sclerotherapy for varicose veins and thrombolysis for DVT. Written by leading experts in their field, this book is a key resource for practicing vein physicians and surgeons, and postgraduates in surgery training programs, enabling them to incorporate the latest advances into their day-to-day practice.
´´Strength training´´ and ´´seniors´´ does not sound like a probable match, but in fact it is a match made in heaven. The mere thought of people who are past their physical prime pumping iron might seem vain or ludicrous, but millions of seniors are discovering the manifold benefits of strength training, and the medical community continues to produce studies showing that those who dare to incorporate strength training in their weekly routines gain all sorts of physical and emotional benefits. Unfortunately, many seniors discover the wonders of strength training while doing rehabilitation after a surgery or a fall. You don´t have to wait until you experience a health crisis to begin doing strength training. In fact, starting a regular strength training program could prevent many of the crises that force seniors to do workouts with weights. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Paine.

A state-of-the-art resource on successful management of intraocular lens monovision Pseudophakic Monovision: A Clinical Guide by renowned ophthalmologic surgery experts Fuxiang Zhang, Alan Sugar, and Graham Barrett reflects decades of robust academic research, with comprehensive discussion of the pseudophakic lens. Pseudophakic monovision is frequently used as a strategy for presbyopia correction in cataract surgery patients, with high satisfaction rates. The authors address the advantages and drawbacks to this approach, with topics ranging from the optics and neurophysiology of monovision to preoperative vision testing and counseling. The book fills a gap in the literature on this essential yet relatively neglected topic. In the current era of an ever-expanding array of intraocular lenses inserted in cataract surgery, monovision correction is emerging as an efficacious, far less expensive method for managing presbyopia than multifocal lenses. One eye is corrected for optimal distance vision and the other for optimal near vision, thereby avoiding both the expense of multifocal lenses and inconvenience of wearing glasses and/or contact lenses. Emerging adjustable IOLs address eye dominance issues, enabling patients to attain excellent distance acuity in one eye, then select the amount of myopia that works best in the second eye. Key Features Guidelines on basic calculations, optics, and techniques Various practical considerations, such as patient selection, incorporating IOL monovision into practice, essential preoperative tests, nighttime driving, and limitations Optics, neurophysiology, and graphic illustrations enhance understanding of the basics of IOL monovision including mini, moderate, and full monovision, as well as the concept of the not-sharply focused-zone Ocular as well as systemic contraindications, and how to use extra tests to detect subtle contraindications such as monofixation at the preoperative office visit How to use conventional as well as crossed monovision to enhance premium IOL outcomes such as accommodating and Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOLs Ocular comorbidity case reports provide knowledge about how specific co-occurring eye diseases impact patient outcome This invaluable resource will help refractive cataract surgeons incorporate Toric, accommodating, and EDOF IOL technology into ophthalmology practice and achieve excellent patient outcomes.
