Surgery of the Inferior Vena Cava: A Multidisciplinary Approach 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This book addresses an urgent need, offering an updated, detailed and multidisciplinary review of surgery of the inferior vena cava (IVC). Over the past two decades, tremendous advances have been made in this field and related specialties. Many journals and/or textbooks on different surgical or medical specialties have reported on individual aspects, so it is high time to gather all of them in a single resource.

To date, surgery of the IVC remains a major challenge, not only in terms of technical difficulties, but also in terms of perioperative management.  The book sheds new light on cutting-edge developments, including: Innovations in imaging; Neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatments for tumors of or involving the IVC; Intraoperative anesthetic management; and Technical and technological advances in surgery. As such, it will be of a great interest to surgeons (cardiac, vascular and digestive) and urologists, as well as radiologists and anesthesiologists.

Endoscopic Ear Surgery 1st Edition

Endoscopic techniques have revolutionized many surgical specialties and allowed the gradual development of new, minimally invasive procedures. Otology is no exception. The aim of Endoscopic Ear Surgery is to explore the role of endoscopy in the evolution of otologic surgery, and to introduce the surgeon to basic and advanced endoscopic ear surgery techniques.

Rich with color images, the book also serves as an atlas of temporal bone anatomy and pathologic processes as seen through an ear endoscope.

Key features include:

  • Principles of endoscopic ear surgery
  • Evolving concepts of middle ear physiology and ventilation routes
  • Basic and advanced endoscopic ear surgery techniques
  • Endoscopic lateral skull base surgery
  • Endoscope-assisted office procedures

Endoscopic Ear Surgery is primarily intended for otolaryngologists who perform ear surgery and would like to acquire or fine tune their endoscopic ear surgery skills. It is also helpful to otolaryngology residents during their otology block. This book is valuable to anyone performing ear procedures in the operating room or in the office.

From the Foreward:
Endoscopic Ear Surgery provides a current and comprehensive discussion of the widening range of surgical procedures that can be accomplished through endoscopically based, minimally invasive techniques. Natasha Pollak has gathered an international panel of experienced endoscopic ear surgeons who present detailed information about the role of endoscopic approaches in a wide range of otologic and neurotologic procedures. These authors offer practical information about the broad role of endoscopic surgery for the ear and the logistics of performing endoscopic procedures in both the operating room and office settings. They present compelling discussions of not only endoscopic approaches to the middle ear and mastoid, but also the expansion of these techniques to the lateral skull base, the posterior fossa, and the cochlea. Through comprehensive narratives, detailed graphics, and careful photographic illustrations, Endoscopic Ear Surgery provides both the novice otolaryngologist and the experienced otologist/neurotologist and neurosurgeon with a complete and thorough presentation of these cutting-edge techniques.

Textbooks rarely capture the excitement and momentum of an evolving field in quite the way that this present publication is able to accomplish. Dr. Pollak and her contributors are to be congratulated for this outstanding work, which will provide a benchmark in its field for years to come. I highly recommend Endoscopic Ear Surgery, and I am confident that you will find it both practical and useful.”

Inverse Abdominoplasty: An Illustrated Guide 1st ed. 2017 Edition

Written by international experts, this book describes different techniques for abdominoplasty. It starts with a functional anatomy description of the abdomen, followed by a brief overview of current techniques. With the help of numerous illustrations, the reader will gain detailed knowledge of how to perform the inverse full abdominoplasty, the inverse mini abdominoplasty (with and without floating umbilicus) and the secondary inverse abdominoplasty. Lastly, ancillary procedures that can be used in conjunction with inverse abdominoplasty are discussed. By also addressing the potential complications of this surgical procedure, the book offers essential guidelines for surgeons dealing with a variety of problems in the surgery of the abdominal area.

Although abdominoplasty is one of the oldest procedures in plastic surgery, new approaches like high lateral tension abdominoplasty have refined the technique and its aesthetic outcomes. Still, problems remain like the length of the procedure, difficulties of dissection of long flaps, lack of elasticity in the flaps due to previous surgery, scars at the surgical site, unfavorable aesthetic outcomes, and variable challenges during the postoperative period, like wound healing and pain. Particularly, secondary abdominal surgery remains a technical challenge, from decision to application.

New Concepts on Abdominoplasty and Further Applications 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This book documents the important advances that have been achieved in abdominoplasty over the past 15 years, in particular through the introduction of a nontraumatic approach associated with minimal morbidity owing to the avoidance of resection of abdominal panniculus and damage to the perforating vessels. The surgical principles of this procedure, including in combination with liposuction, are fully described by its developer, Juarez Avelar, with the aid of a wealth of color illustrations. A miniabdominoplasty option is also discussed and recent significant technical contributions such as various new plication techniques and means of minimizing complications are clearly presented. In addition, a series of chapters explain how the surgical principles underlying the described nontraumatic method of abdominoplasty can now be applied to other areas of the body, for example to improve rhytidoplasty, ear reconstruction, body contouring, and medial thigh lifting. This book enables the plastic surgeon to apply the latest abdominoplasty techniques effectively and safely.
