Vitreous Microsurgery

Byron Wood, Jorge Calzada
e altri

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 272

Written by a pioneering leader in the development of vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instruments, "Vitreous Microsurgery" is a comprehensive how-to guide to all vitreoretinal procedures. This thoroughly updated Fifth Edition describes many new techniques and refinements of established procedures. This title includes more than 170 three-dimensional full-color illustrations - many by the Charles Retina Institute's resident medical artist, Byron Wood-enable surgeons to clearly visualize the techniques. This edition has new chapters on the Constellation vitrectomy system, uveitis, retinal complications of permanent keratoprosthesis, and anti-VEGF therapy. All illustrations have been updated, the majority to a 25-gauge approach instead of 20-gauge, and many new illustrations have been added. Many techniques and parameters unique to 25-gauge sutureless vitrectomy are discussed in detail. The retinopathy of prematurity chapter was completely rewritten to address new examination procedures, laser guidelines, anti-VEGF therapy, and changing, more conservative indications for surgery. The section on anesthesia for vitreoretinal surgery was completely rewritten in collaboration with Gary Fanning, MD and Jay Mattingly, MD, leading experts on this subject from an anesthesiologist's perspective. The focus of the text is on the decision making process a surgeon goes through in evaluating the best course of treatment for his/her patient undergoing vitreous surgery. This book describes in detail clinically proven methods of managing the anterior and posterior segment vitreous surgery patient in a systematic manner. The text is organized in a building block approach with general methodology preceding its application to specific disease states. This book stresses algorithms for intra-operative decision making, relying on knowledge of physical principles and performed in the order of ascending risk. A companion website included with purchase offers the fully searchable text and an online image bank.

Evoluzione umana

Bernard Wood

editore: Codice

pagine: 160

La domanda che sta alla base di tutte le ricerche, di tutti gli studi e di tutti i dibattiti (talvolta molto accesi) che nell'Ottocento hanno dato origine alla paleoantropologia, è in definitiva quella che l'uomo si pone da sempre: da dove veniamo? Qual è il nostro posto nel pianeta che abitiamo e nella sua storia? Questa disciplina, così affascinante e per sua natura eclettica, che da più di due secoli ricostruisce faticosamente, reperto dopo reperto, le tappe della nascita e dell'evoluzione dell'uomo, sta in questi ultimi anni godendo del fondamentale apporto di altri rami della scienza. Accanto al rinvenimento e all'analisi dei resti fossili, i paleoantropologi attingono sempre più dagli studi sul clima del passato e sulle credenze magiche e religiose di popoli ormai scomparsi, dai progressi della genetica e da quelli della biologia, fino alle recenti misurazioni della geocronologia.

Preventive Cardiology

A Practical Manual

Alison Mead, Annie Holden
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 240

Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death across Europe, accounting for over four million deaths each year. The main objectives of preventive cardiology are to increase the duration and improve the quality of life. This indispensible manual provides practical advice on how to structure and run a preventive cardiology programme, addressing the prevention of cardiovascular disease in clinical practice through lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic management. The approach described in this manual is for patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, those at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease and their families. It is written by the multidisciplinary team who coordinated the EUROACTION demonstration project in preventive cardiology in 8 countries in Europe, and provides a comprehensive lifestyle and cardiovascular risk factor management strategy . It is directed at doctors, nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists, physical activity specialists and other disciplines involved in the preventive and rehabilitative care of these patients. The manual takes the professional through the patient and family pathway - from patient identification, recruitment of patient and family, comprehensive assessment of lifestyle and cardiovascular risk factors, to management of lifestyle change: stopping smoking, making healthy food choices, becoming physically active, achieving a healthy weight and shape and management of blood pressure, blood lipids and blood glucose to healthy levels. A programme model is described which includes both group and individual one-to-one approaches to care. The role of each member of the multi-disciplinary team is described together with the tools available to achieve lifestyle and risk factor change.

The Neuropsychology of Mental Illness

Christos Pantelis, Nick Allen
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 464

It is widely accepted that most psychiatric disorders are associated with cognitive impairment and that neuropsychological approaches can help unravel the mechanisms underlying brain function and help us develop a better understanding of these disorders. In this book, a panel of the world's leading experts describe the development of neuropsychological approaches to the investigation, description, measurement and management of a wide range of mental illnesses. Part One explains the rationale for examining neuropsychological processes within clinical disorders, leading into Part Two summarizing and critiquing the methodological approaches to study. Part Three covers each of the major psychiatric disorders and provides a summary of the neuropsychological findings for each condition. The final section brings together the perspectives of neuroscientists, psychiatrists and philosophers. Essential reading for all those studying the healthy as well as the disordered brain, The Neuropsychology of Mental Illness will appeal to specialists from the fields of mental health, psychology, clinical neuroscience and philosophy.

A Stereotaxic Atlas of the Golden Hamster Brain

Larry P. Morin, Ruth Wood

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 146

This atlas provides a look at the golden hamster brain in stereotaxic coordinates, which is the grid that is used, much like a map, to ensure accuracy within the lab. It provides a pictorial synopsis of what is currently known about the structure and function of the brain, and provides a consistent anatomical definition and nomenclature (labeling) for areas in the brain. This is the first atlas to preset the golden hamster brain in stereotaxic coordinates. The authors use the brain of an adult male golden hamster, the most widely utilized hamster in neuroscience research. The brains of two different hamsters are used. The first brain is sectioned and stained, using cresyl violet, acetylcholinesterase, Sudan black, and NADPH-diaphorase. The second brain is stained using cresyl violet, luxol fast blue, serotonin immunoreactivity, and GABA/benzodiazepine receptor immunoreactivity. The key features include: provides the first atlas of the golden hamster brain, making it more accessible to researchers; presents accurate three-dimensional coordinates for stereotaxic surgery; brings together current information about hamster brain structure; and, promotes the use of the hamster for key areas of study - i.e., visual system development and regeneration and measurement of circadian behavioral rhythms.
