Pediatric Elbow Fractures: A Clinical Guide to Management 1st ed. 2018 Edition

This unique text focuses entirely on the treatment of pediatric elbow fractures, which encompass the vast majority of operative cases for pediatric fracture care, and which can be challenging to even the most experienced surgeon. The book opens with a survey of the basic anatomy and development of the elbow, as well as examination and imaging techniques. Both acute and chronic fractures are then discussed in detail, beginning with a brief outline of the epidemiology, classification, and work-up of each fracture, but the main focus will be on providing a master’s approach to the surgical treatment of these injuries, including supracondylar fractures, capitellar shear fractures, elbow dislocations, Monteggia fracture dislocations, and cubitus varus and valgus, among others. Numerous photographs, figures and videos will enable the orthopedic surgeon, hand surgeon, and trauma surgeon to be fully prepared to treat any of these fractures.

Pediatric Dermatopathology 1st ed

This book provides practicing pathologists, dermatologists, cutaneous oncologists and dermatopathologists with a reference textbook that reviews the clinical and histopathologic features of skin disorders that affect children, along with a discussion of the molecular pathogenesis for each disease as it is currently known.  The book includes a concise discussion of the clinical presentation, as well as the histologic and, when appropriate, immunohistochemical features of each disease.  The book is divided into two main sections, non-neoplastic and neoplastic skin diseases.   Each section is comprised of a series of chapters organized according to histologic findings rather than by clinical classification systems.  This will enable the practicing pathologist to browse chapters based upon observation of routine histologic patterns.  Each chapter addresses the differential diagnoses of skin disorders with focus on salient histologic characteristics. The text is richly illustrated with over 1000 colorful clinical and histologic photographs for each of the 400 entities discussed.
Pediatric Dermatopathology provides a microscope table reference for the practicing pediatric pathologist, general pathologist and dermatopathologist.  Further, it will serve as a reference volume for dermatologists, pediatricians and oncologic surgeons.
