Emergency Surgery Course (ESC®) Manual: The Official ESTES/AAST Guide 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This manual explains how to make the right decisions on the timing and selection of investigations and surgical procedures in emergency and urgent surgical settings and describes the most widely used procedures step by step with the aid of high-quality illustrations. The goal is to address the situations that can arise in almost any emergency department throughout the world, enabling the surgeon on call to acquire or sharpen the knowledge and skills needed to deal with acute surgical problems in the most appropriate way. The reader will gain a sound understanding of the most efficient diagnostic modalities, pre-, intra-, and postoperative decision-making, and surgical techniques and issues in particular circumstances. The manual stems from an initiative by members of the European Society of Trauma and Emergency Surgery (ESTES) and the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) to set up and formalize Emergency Surgery Courses to provide specific training in emergency and acute care surgery. It represents a didactic accompaniment to the course that will guide the beginner and maintain a certain degree of standardization among the more experienced.

Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations, 9th Edition 9th Edition

The classic step-by-step atlas of general surgery procedures – now in color and updated with the latest laparoscopic operations

A Doody’s Core Title for 2011!

1615 color-highlighted illustrations

“…a beautifully illustrated atlas of modern surgical procedures….While in other atlases line drawings may simplify and operative photographs may add realism, the illustrations in this atlas allow the surgeon to visualize both the anatomy and the operation. Beyond this, the softly colored illustrations are aesthetically pleasing and invite reading of the accompanying narrative….In sum, while the ninth edition of Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations differs from the early editions in many ways, it nonetheless evokes the enduring qualities of its predecessors and will guide yet another generation of surgeons.”–JAMA

For more than half-a-century, Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations has been the gold-standard reference for learning how to perform the most common surgical procedures using safe, well-established techniques. The ninth edition continues this tradition of excellence with the addition of color illustrations and coverage of more than 230 procedures, including many of the most important laparoscopic operations.

Following the proven effective design of previous editions, each procedure is fully explained on two pages. The right page contains beautifully rendered line drawings with color highlights that depict every important action a surgeon must consider while performing the operation. The facing page includes consistently formatted coverage of indications, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, position, operative preparation, incision and exposure, procedure, closure, and postoperative care.

Features

  • Coverage of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, vascular, gynecologic, and additional procedures, including hernia repair, vascular access, breast procedures, sentinel lymph node biopsy, thyroidectomy, and many more

Atlas of Suturing Techniques: Approaches to Surgical Wound, Laceration, and Cosmetic Repair 1st Edition

The ultimate visual compendium of optimal suturing and wound repair practice, covering 75 must-know techniques

Atlas of Suturing Techniques: Approaches to Surgical Wound, Laceration, and Wound Repair presents the building blocks of suturing and wound repair in an at-a-glance, economical atlas format. In its pages, the author shares his vast expertise and it is his intention to help physicians across many specialties to improve outcomes for patients requiring repair of any wound. Starting with chapters on principles of wound management and wound repair, the atlas then moves on to equipment, positioning, and other key principles. The next section covers 75 suture techniques, providing detailed step-by-step instructions adjacent to drawings and photos of the techniques. Finally, the last section covers each area of anatomy, guiding you in what suture to use when, how to modify certain sutures in specific locations, and even how to prepare and execute skin grafts.

Atlas of Suturing Techniques: Approaches to Surgical Wound, Laceration, and Wound Repair goes beyond the scope of other texts, which often limit their focus to either general operative principles or the specific use of flaps in particular reconstructive areas, such as facial and nasal reconstruction. While these texts provide insufficient coverage of actual suture placement techniques, this one-stop resource excels at providing a clear, easy-to-follow atlas of suturing―one that enables you to prevent scars and other negative patient outcomes. Unfortunately, even the best designed repair can be undone by less-than-optimal suturing techniques.

  • Reviews the fundamental principles of suturing and wound repair in an accessible, affordable Atlas format
  • Covers 75 suture techniques and provides unique, step-by-step instructions with precise drawings and photos of the techniques
  • Includes 80 videos
  • Helpful anatomical orientation in last section specifies what suture to use in a wide range of clinical scenarios

Management of Hemostasis and Coagulopathies for Surgical and Critically Ill Patients: An Evidence-Based Approach 1st Edition

Management of Hemostasis and Coagulopathies for Surgical and Critically Ill Patients: An Evidence-Based Approach offers a concise guide to a sub-specialty of transfusion medicine from the clinical laboratory perspective. It focuses on the clinical tests that may be done during preoperative assessment, intraoperative, and postoperative assessment and management of surgical or critically ill patients. Management of hemostasis and coagulopathies is approached from an evidence-based perspective―the coagulation status of a patient according to the laboratory test results. Algorithms and decision-support software, designed by the authors, guide clinicians with an additional tool to base transfusion dosage on specific laboratory results, including the use of an artificial neural network for predicting more accurate blood use.

Chapters reflect the experience of all three authors who have successfully applied the algorithm for better patient management as well as decreased wastage of expensive blood products, from both the clinical laboratory/pathology and clinical medicine perspective. This book will appeal to a broad section of clinical laboratory and medical practitioners from hematopathology, to internal medicine, surgery, and anesthesiology. For hematopathologists and pathologists who are involved in laboratory medicine and transfusion medicine, this book will help them understand the proper utilization of blood products and how to avoid unnecessary waste and costs for the hospital. For general surgery practitioners, this book will provide practical guidelines on how to use blood products rationally for best medical practice. Internists will also gain insight from this book, learning which patients are at higher risk of bleeding during surgery so that they can alert their clinical colleagues.

  • Focuses on the clinical tests that may be done during preoperative assessment, intraoperative, and postoperative assessment and management
  • Explains new decision-support software developed by the authors as a tool for the management of bleeding patients
  • Reviews common coagulation based tests (indication and interpretation) that are used to assist in the management of bleeding patients
  • Provides an overview of various blood products, pharmacotherapeutic agents, antiplatelets, and anticoagulants, their usage strategy, indications, and therapy goals
