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

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.

Kidney Transplantation in Sensitized Patients

Kidney Transplantation in Sensitized Patients

This book presents state of the art knowledge on all aspects of kidney transplantation in recipients in whom desensitization strategies are necessary in order to overcome immunologic barriers such as anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) donor-specific antibody and ABO blood group incompatibility. Readers will find detailed, up-to-date information on the various immunomodulating therapies that may be employed in these circumstances and the outcomes that may be expected. Full guidance is provided on preoperative evaluation and management and post-transplantation care. In addition, the pathology of antibody-mediated rejection and acute cellular rejection in this context is discussed.
