Colorectal Surgery

Living Pathology in the Operating Room

Mark Killingback

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 278

"Colorectal Surgery: Living Pathology in the Operating Room" is two books in one. First, it is an atlas in the classic definition: each chapter is a two-page spread discussing one case. Functionally, each chapter is a case study with both the surgical and pathological perspectives beautifully rendered and fully explained. Visually, every chapter presents the reader with operative and/or diagnostic photos, and anatomic line drawings by the author. The text, more extensive than in many atlases, provides a concise yet complete operative record: patient history/work up, anatomic anomalies, the procedure itself, pathologic findings, and follow up. Key teaching points emphasize the most important and unique aspects of every case. Residents, fellows, and even seasoned practitioners will gain valuable diagnostic and therapeutic insights from this material. The case study presentation provides an excellent review tool for the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery exam.

Integrated Medical and Surgical Gastroenterology

J. J. B. van Lanschot

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 718

This Textbook covers the entire spectrum of both benign and malignant gastrointestinal disorders. It is unique in its multidisciplinary approach and focuses on practical issues in day-to-day clinical care. The complexity of novel diagnostic modalities and the great variety in therapeutic options, both medically and surgically, require an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, each topic in this Textbook is first discussed by two gastroenterologists and subsequently by two digestive surgeons. If appropriate, interventional radiologists, internists and pathologists have also contributed. Specific subchapters on gastrointestinal malignancies have been added, written by medical and radiation oncologists. Nowadays, many hospitals and medical schools change their infrastructure from discipline-oriented to patient-/disease-oriented. In fact, this Textbook describes what the medical gastroenterologist should know about surgical gastroenterology and vice-versa. A large number of drawings in full color helps the reader to get a clear picture of many technical procedures.

Cope's Early Diagnosis of the Acute Abdomen

William Silen

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 314

This famous text is much beloved by medical students and physicians-in-training throughout the English-speaking world, as its many editions indicate. Despite its relatively narrow focus, it is chock full of the pearls of clinical wisdom that students and practitioners treasure, and many of these lessons apply to medicine in general. The book was well characterized by a reviewer of an earlier edition for The New England Journal of Medicine: "If only one book about surgery could be made available to physicians from all specialties, it should probably be Silen's recent revision of Cope's Early Diagnosis of the Acute Abdomen. Since the book first appeared more than 30 years ago, it has remained the classic treatise on the initial approach to abdominal pain." Because acute, severe abdominal pain is still a common problem whose misdiagnosis can result in quick death, each generation of beginning physicians is faced with the urgency of learning to make a diagnosis in this high anxiety situation and they appreciate the wise, humane, precisely detailed guidance offered by Cope and Silen. For the 21st Edition, Silen has again updated the text in a respectful but significant way. He has strengthened its emphasis on pitfalls in the interpretation of CT and ultrasound scans, on misadventures caused by over-reliance on blood tests and radiographs, and on careful history-taking to avoid the costs of inappropriate lab tests. He has also reviewed the data from a randomized clinical trial indicating that patients should receive adequate analgesia while awaiting a definitive diagnosis, a dictum that is contrary to traditional teaching.

Endoscopy is a medical specialism that is actively recruiting new entrants. There is considerable demand for colonoscopists in the USA and the UK to meet the respective guidelines for colorectal cancer screening in the general population. In the USA, it is recommended that men and women aged 50 years and older get screened for colorectal cancer as many studies have shown that screening reduces mortality from cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US: the American Cancer Society estimates that 148,300 new cases will be diagnosed in 2002.Colonoscopy is now a mainstream procedure and is widely used as a screening and treatment tool for colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. As a result, the focus is now changing from developing new techniques to enhancing the efficiency and quality of fundamental techniques. There are three elements to this agenda: initial training, continuous quality improvement and patient empowerment. The table of contents has been created with these three elements at the fore. It is an extremely comprehensive textbook aimed primarily at the experienced colonoscopist but the book will be an extremely useful manual of procedures - clinical, administrative and managerial - for everyone working in the Endoscopy Unit. Blackwell Publishing is delighted to announce that this book has won ?First Prize in Gastroenterology? in the 2004 BMA Medical Book Competition. Here is the judges? summary of this book: "This is an excellent book. It is very comprehensive and deals not just with all aspects of the procedure of colonoscopy but also covers in some detail its place in the broader management of a range of colorectal conditions. It deals with complex areas concisely and I have found it a good reference point for a number of questions since I have been reviewing it. It is a very attractive book and is well-laid out with very high quality and well chosen illustrations in colour throughout. I have not seen a textbook on colonoscopy that comes anywhere near the quality of this book. I think that anyone who is involved in colonoscopy and, obviously colonoscopists in particular, should have access to this book. It is the sort of text that I would make compulsory reading if I were running a colonoscopy training course."

Pancreas and Islet Transplantation

Derek Gray, Nadey S. Hakim
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 390

Diabetes Mellitus is the principal cause of kidney failure and blindness in adults and leads to more cases of amputation and impotence than any other disease. It is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. The aims of pancreas or islet transplantation are to improve the quality of life of patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and to ameliorate secondary complications. This book provides a comprehensive and international review of the recent advances in pancreas and islet transplantation. It covers surgical techniques, issues surrounding organ preservation, immunosuppression and the control of other complications, all of which contribute to the potential for such transplantations to evolve as the treatment of choice for insulin dependent diabetes.

Reconstructive Surgery of the Esophagus

Mark Ferguson

editore: Blackwell Futura

pagine: 333

Reconstructive Surgery of the Esophagus allows the reader to take a fresh look at a subject that is mired in history and convention. The result is an honest examination of current dogma, providing a basis for rational decision making. The author makes use of a wide variety of both historical and contemporary original source materials, offering the reader a complete overview of reconstructive esophageal surgery. In addition to copious evidence-based information, the author shares some of his valuable experience-based observations to help guide the practitioner through details of complex procedures, avoid common problems, and manage complications when they occur. This book is organised to permit easy access to detailed information on all aspects of esophageal reconstruction, and is liberally illustrated with original line drawings that depict the relevant anatomy and steps associated with each procedure. Because the esophagus and related structures traverse three anatomic regions, reconstructive surgery requires knowledge of a host of different and sometimes arcane aspects of physiology and anatomy. General thoracic surgeons, general surgeons, cardiothoracic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and plastic/reconstructive surgeons will all benefit from this well-organised succinct text.
