The Outpatient Breast Clinic

Aiming at Best Practice

Alfonso M. Pluchinotta

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 500

This full-colour, richly-illustrated book is an excellent source of rapidly retrievable information on aspects of relevance in daily clinical practice in the outpatient breast clinic. Expert guidance is provided on a full range of topics, including pitfalls of clinical examination, imaging and related tissue diagnosis, approaches to management decision-making in different disorders, the role of surgery and adjuvant therapy, follow-up and rehabilitation. In outpatient breast clinics, effective communication with patients must be established in order to address symptoms that in most cases are not serious but can be very worrying and sometimes lead to misdiagnosis and also to litigation. Outpatient consultations also offer an opportunity to encourage a healthy lifestyle and to provide information on matters such as risk assessment, screening and the most reliable websites. A well-functioning outpatient clinic is essential to a breast unit's overall proficiency. Readers will find this book an invaluable aid to good practice. The authors place particular emphasis on quality indicators and key priorities for implementation of the main guidelines, at the same time specifying the level of evidence for them and degree of recommendation. Practical measures for achieving the best results are highlighted, and helpful advice is provided on optimizing patient communication and reducing the psychological burden.

Breast Imaging and Pathologic Correlations

A Pattern-Based Approach

Dianne Georgian-Smith

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 608

Effectively overcome difficult diagnostic challenges with Breast Imaging and Pathologic Correlations: A Pattern-Based Approach. This atlas is based on the morphology of the Birads Lexicon and not the pathology entities. It illustrates the "how" and "why" of breast imaging, whether via mammography or ultrasound and uses a case-based approach to walk you through a wide range of common and uncommon findings and correlates imaging patterns to pathology, helping you build your pattern recognition skills so you can diagnose breast cases with complete confidence. Key features increase your pattern recognition skills thanks to an organization by categories of pathologic presentation (i.e. masses, calcifications, architectural distortion, and other, less common malignant features) rather than by final diagnosis. It helps you to learn to evaluate masses based on shapes and margins, calcifications based on morphology and distribution and not the pathology entities, and distinguish architectural distortion from overlapping tissues. See how to distinguish between benign and malignant possibilities for almost every feature. Master the methodical thought process used by the most experienced radiologists so you can navigate the most challenging imaging findings, avoid diagnostic pitfalls, and provide the early detection patients need to ensure the best outcomes. Navigate the table of contents with ease as it provides a differential diagnosis per morphology. Now with the print edition, enjoy the bundled interactive eBook edition, offering tablet, smartphone, or online access to: complete content with enhanced navigation; a powerful search that pulls results from content in the book, your notes, and even the web. it offers cross-linked pages, references, and more for easy navigation; highlighting tool for easier reference of key content throughout the text; ability to take and share notes with friends and colleagues; and quick reference tabbing to save your favorite content for future use.

Problems in Breast Surgery

A Repair Manual

Jack Fisher, Neal Handel

editore: Quality Medical Publishing Inc

pagine: 860

Problems in Breast Surgery: A Repair Manual is destined to become a valued part of every plastic surgeon and breast surgeon's library. This unique book provides a virtual lifeline for addressing the challenges encountered in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery and avoiding possible problems and complications. This is not a traditional technique-oriented textbook; rather, it has a problem focus and provides different solutions for solving complex problems associated with secondary breast surgery. The book begins with chapters on the basic principles of corrective breast surgery and the key anatomic factors and mechanisms of failure that are key to accurate analysis. With this foundation in place, it proceeds to address the spectrum of potential problems that can occur with each of the different procedures, ranging from breast augmentation, reduction, and mastopexy to breast and nipple-areola reconstruction. Each chapter is introduced with a specific problem presented by Drs. Fisher and Handel. Then the second portion of the chapter features a variety of solutions from different experts for treating the problem. These experts provide case examples of similar problems with the step-by-step explanation of how they solved these problems and why they took the approach that they used. The book covers both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. The goal of this book is not to judge which solution is the best (that decision is left to the reader). Designed to provide a detailed road map, this manual explains how to move from point A, the problem, to point B, the solution. Beautifully Illustrated Dramatic color illustrations and numerous preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative images will help the reader visualize the steps of each operative solution. Unique Features This book's approach is unique and should be of great educational value to surgeons, both residents and practitioners, in solving challenging problems and complications; but even more important, it will help them avoid problems and complications in future cases.

Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast

Laura C. Collins, Stuart J. Schnitt

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 512

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of "Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast" presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate. In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted. Features include: lesions grouped by histologic patterns to simulate real-world experience; many sections updated to reflect the most recent advances in the field; more than 550 color images, including over 100 new images, highlight key pathologic features and streamline visual diagnosis; bulleted tables summarize key diagnostic features of various lesions; and a concise, convenient format that serves as a practical reference and diagnostic guide for pathologists. Included with the companion web site: fully searchable text; more than 300 full-color images; and test bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.
