Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Burns: An Atlas of New Techniques and Strategies

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Burns

This comprehensive atlas provides a step-by-step guide of new techniques in burn surgery and enables readers to identify the appropriate treatment plan and best possible procedure for each patient pre-surgery before delving into a variety of different surgical possibilities for treatment and recovery. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Burns – An Atlas of New Techniques and Strategies presents new solutions in plastic and reconstructive surgery for burns built upon tried and true techniques of contracture restoration using various flaps and skin grafts. Accompanying illustrations and schemes allow the reader to visualize the process from mapping, dissecting and closing the wound. Preoperative and postoperative results are compared, with extensive illustrations and pictures that cover areas of the body most commonly treated for burns including face, neck, breast, torso, arms, legs, hands, and feet. Outcomes of the surgeries including full functional and aesthetic restoration of treated patients are meticulously photographed and provided alongside each technique. New classifications are presented based on contracture anatomy which showcase the development of new flaps and techniques that elevate functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of burned patients to a new level.
The culmination of the decades long career of renowned plastic surgeon, Viktor M. Grishkevich, many new and original techniques, currently unpublished in U.S. literature, are detailed in depth alongside techniques uniquely designed by Dr. Grishkevich and previously published around the world. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Burns – An Atlas of New Techniques and Strategies, has international reach and is meant for plastic and reconstructive surgeons with specialties inhand, maxillo-facial, facial, and ENT.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation: Clinical, Interventional and Surgical Perspectives

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

This book provides comprehensive information on transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), which was introduced for the treatment of aortic valve disease less than two decades ago. It explains how TAVI has delivered satisfactory results even in high and intermediate risk patients and outlines how it continues to evolve, thus requiring awareness of state of the art approaches to indication, risk stratification, device choice, procedure, and follow-up. In addition, it reports on the complex and multidisciplinary approach needed to maximize the efficacy, safety, and appropriateness of TAVI, providing detailed clinical, interventional and surgical perspectives focusing on the development of this cardiovascular intervention.

Starting with the history of TAVI, addressing the interventional anatomy of aortic valve disease, and reporting on the expert authors’ day-to-day experiences, this highly informative book offers an essential update for all cardiologists and surgeons interested in transcatheter aortic valve implantation, as well as any clinician, decision-maker and stakeholder involved in patient selection, procedural management, and follow-up.

Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology 2nd ed

Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology 2nd ed

Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology 2nd ed

The 1st edition of Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology was an opportunity to pull together into one place all the ideas related to errors in surgical pathology and to organize a discipline in error reduction. This 2nd edition is an opportunity to refine this information, to reorganize the book to improve its usability and practicality, and to include topics that were not previously addressed.

This book serves as a guide to pathologists to successfully avoid errors and deliver the best diagnosis possible with all relevant information needed to manage patients. The introductory section includes general principles and ideas that are necessary to understand the context of error reduction. In addition to general principles of error reduction and legal and regulatory responsibilities, a chapter on regulatory affairs and payment systems which increasingly may be impacted by error reduction and improvement activities was added.  This later chapter is particularly important in view of the implementation of various value-based payment programs, such as the Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Payment System that became law in 2015. The remainder of the book is organized in a similar manor to the 1st edition with chapters devoted to all aspects of the test cycle, including pre-analytic, analytic and post-analytic.

The 2nd Edition of Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology serves as an essential guide to a successfully managed laboratory and contains all relevant information needed to manage specimens and deliver the best diagnosis.

Surgical Ethics: Principles and Practice

Surgical Ethics: Principles and Practice

Surgical Ethics: Principles and Practice

This book encompasses the theoretical and practical aspects of surgical ethics, with a focus on the application of ethical standards to everyday surgical practice and the resolution of ethical conflicts in the surgical arena.  It provides surgeons (both prospective and practicing) in the different surgical fields with deep, practical insights into the topic.
A 21st century surgeon requires complete competence (superb clinical skills, expert surgical decision-making and outstanding performance and technical skills) as well as solid ethical values. Ethics are placed at the core of surgical professionalism, so  surgeons must be not only proficient and expert but also ethically and morally reliable. Surgical decision-making can be considered as a two-step process: the “how to treat” aspect is a matter of surgical science, while “why to treat” issues are a matter of surgical ethics and are based on ethical principles. As such, every surgeon should have a moral compass to guide his or her actions, always placing the welfare and rights of the patients above their own. The book provides invaluable background and insights for solving the ethical conflicts surgeons around the globe encounter in their daily practice.
Each chapter will also include features such as key point summaries in the beginning of the chapters, explanatory boxes, a glossary and suggested readings.
Surgical Ethics – Principles and Practice is an authoritative work in the field designed for experienced surgeons, surgical residents, and fellows, all of whom are  confronted with ethics issues and conflicts in practice.

Robotic Surgery for Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair: A Manual of Best Practices

Robotic Surgery for Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair: A Manual of Best Practices

Robotic Surgery for Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair

This book is a surgical manual, intended to present and discuss the use of robotic surgery for abdominal wall hernia repair. It comprises the most important surgical approaches in the field, presenting step by step procedures in a clear and didactic way.

Abdominal wall hernias are very common conditions, easily identifiable in clinical practice and that usually require a surgical intervention as treatment. However, the choice for the right surgical procedure to treat those conditions may vary, provided the diversity on possible techniques, clinical presentations and complexity. Robotic surgery has emerged in recent years as an important tool to increase the number of surgical approaches for the surgeon who faces abdominal wall hernias. Video-assisted and robotic surgery may represent a consistent improvement in options available for the surgeon involved in wall hernia repair. Current robotic surgical techniques present several of the benefits of common laparoscopic surgery features (such as low invasiveness and fast recovery), and adds some other specific benefits, such as more dynamic and precise movements and a much better view of the operatory field.
