Tumors of the Jugular Foramen 1st ed. 2017 Edition

This book covers all aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of tumors of the jugular foramen – cranial base lesions that present particular diagnostic and management difficulties and remain challenging to remove despite advances in surgery and interventional neuroradiology. The authors have developed novel concepts and surgical techniques relating to management of the facial nerve, reconstruction of the cranial base, and resection of large tumors with intra- and extracranial extension. These techniques, as well as anatomic studies in cadavers, are presented by means of surgical photographs, illustrations, and videos. Tumors of the Jugular Foramen will be of interest to all specialists involved in the management of these challenging tumors, including neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons, neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurointensivists, radiotherapists, oncologists, and physiotherapists.

Practical Approach to Peripheral Arterial Chronic Total Occlusions 1st ed. 2017 Edition

A practical, highly illustrative and easy to read reference for interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons, cardiac/endovascular catheterization laboratory personnel, interventional radiologists, technical staff, industry professionals, investigators, and researchers on peripheral arterial CTO interventions.

Peripheral CTO lesions are present in nearly 50% of all peripheral arterial disease (PAD) endovascular interventions. There is tremendous growth in the performance and learning of peripheral arterial CTO procedures. There are several ongoing physician courses and many others that are being prepared; however, there is a significant lack of standardized selection, strategies, techniques and equipment necessary to achieve a high degree of reproducible success with low complication rates during the performance of these complex and technically challenging endovascular procedures.
The book is not an academic “tour de force” description of the topic but rather a practical one with many illustrations and step-by-step explanations of the various procedure steps, what can go wrong, and troubleshooting. Heavy use of illustrations throughout limit the text to what is necessary to convey the message, and the book is supported by online case catalogues and board review questions. The book also includes never-before-published information on new technology.

Innovative therapeutic treatment options are not currently incorporated within standard procedure, and this book will help physicians include these methods and create more individualised treatment.

From the Back Cover

For the 14 major vascular surgical diseases, this book offers targeted evidence-based treatment choice. Basics are the most recent published treatment results of open surgery and endovascular procedures in vascular medicine.

·         What do international guidelines recommend?

·         Which treatment results have been published in recent Cochrane reviews, structured and systematic reviews, and meta-analyses? How are they to be interpreted?

·         Which new randomized trials exist?

·         What are the results in international registries?

·         How do the results in specialized centres differ from those in medium and low volume hospitals?

Analysis of the data leads to well-justified differentiated treatment recommendations that can be applied directly to hospitals, clinics and out patient services.

Stroke-Vascular Diseases

Atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of heart attacks, strokes and peripheral vascular disease, is one of the major killers in the world. By 2020 WHO statistics indicate that it will be the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in both the industrialised world and the underdeveloped world. The disease develops slowly over many years in the innermost layer of large and medium-sized arteries (Fig. 1) (Scott, 1995; Ross, 1999; Naumova and Scott, 2000; Glass and Witztum, 2001; Libby, 2001). It does not usually become manifest before the fourth of fifth decade, but then often strikes with devas­ tating suddenness. Fifty per cent of individuals still die (25 per cent immedi­ ately) from their first heart attack; and morbidity from coronary heart disease and stroke is very significant. The disease has a profound impact on health­ care services and on industrial economies. The lesions of atherosclerosis Autopsy studies show that in humans atherosclerosis begins in the first and second decade of life. A similar disease can be produced in experimental animals, where diet and genetics can be manipulated to produce identical lesions. The earliest lesions are fatty streaks. These consist of an accumulation of lipid-engorged macrophages (foam cells) and T and B lymphocytes in the arterial intima. With time, the fatty streaks progress to intermediate lesions, composed of foam cells and smooth muscle cells.
