An estimated 9 million children every year are affected by pediatric spinal deformities, encompassing a broad spectrum of pathologies. New classification systems, innovative imaging modalities, and advances in surgical techniques have contributed to a continually evolving, evidence-based treatment paradigm. Patient variables such as the age of onset, severity, course of deformity progression, as well as the availability of technology pose individualized challenges.
The field of head and neck surgery is rapidly changing, with expanding indications for minimally invasive robotic techniques. While the da Vinci Surgical System is the most widely used robotic technology, this is an ever-evolving field with a growing number of other systems, including the Medrobotics Flex Robotic System that is being incorporated into surgical practice. Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) has enabled improved patient outcomes, decreased morbidity, and shorter recovery periods. It has been used primarily for neoplasms located in the upper aerodigestive tract.
Thieme is pleased to announce the addition of an innovative concussion journal to its portfolio of expanding open access publications. Sports-related concussions are a major contributor to traumatic brain injuries, accounting for an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million injuries each year in the U.S. alone. “Current Research: Concussion provides an unparalleled opportunity to disseminate state-of-the-art research on a topic of great importance to everyone involved in sports, as well as medical practitioners and the general public”, says Daniel Schiff, MD, Senior Vice President, Thieme Publishers.
Created in the tradition and style of Thieme's renowned Dental Atlas series, and the product of many years of research and practical experience, Orthodontic Therapy covers the basics of the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws. Clear and concise texts, and thousands of accurate and rich illustrations, most in full color and presented in Thieme's award-winning two-page spreads, make for efficient and pleasant assimilation of this highly detailed and comprehensive material.
Due to advances in spinal endoscopy, practitioners are now able to offer efficacious alternatives to open surgery to patients with low back pain, radiculopathy, and related disorders affecting the epidural space. Epiduroscopy enables surgeons to access, diagnose, and treat discogenic pain and spinal pathologies using minimally invasive techniques via direct visualization and focused intervention. Typically performed as a one-day outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, epiduroscopy provides a viable option to many patients suffering from low back pain.
Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), popularly called "3D mammography" is a state-of-the-art breast imaging technology that provides the ability to view inside the breast, layer by layer. Advantages of DBT include elimination of superimposed tissue, improved detection of otherwise hidden lesions, and significantly higher cancer detection rates compared to conventional mammography.
Previously published by the Society for Interventional Radiology (SIR), this fully revised and updated third edition of Portal Hypertension: Imaging, Diagnosis, and Endovascular Management is the first volume in collaboration between Thieme and the SIR. Edited by Wael E.A. Saad and written by internationally recognized experts, this authoritative volume is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and interventional management of portal hypertension. A potentially serious condition, portal hypertension presents considerable clinical challenges due to the delicate nature of the impacted organs, veins, and vessels.
This remarkable manual encompasses the author's 30 years of experience and unique perspectives teaching endoscopic sinonasal surgery to residents and fellows. It also reflects a wealth of surgical pearls from rhinology and endoscopic skull base surgery experts on how to safely navigate through the nose, sinuses, orbit, and skull base.
This operative atlas is a detailed guide to the most important standard surgical options for advanced rheumatic disease. Procedures are presented with a rich variety of color photographs and exquisite illustrations.
The successful evaluation and treatment of the orbital region – subject to a wide range of diseases affecting multiple organ systems – entails the knowledge and expertise of a multidisciplinary team of specialists. Interdisciplinary Management of Orbital Diseases: Textbook and Atlas brings this team together to offer comprehensive and authoritative discussion of all diseases of the orbital region, with descriptions of topographic and surgical anatomy, pathology, diagnostic steps, imaging, conservative treatment measures, operative approaches, radiotherapy, and orbital reconstruction. Readers will find key information for diagnosing conditions early and achieving maximum therapeutic and aesthetic results.
This remarkable reference work is the result of decades of experience on the part of a top specialist in oral medicine, George Laskaris. The book draws heavily from the singular dedication with which the author has been documenting details of the pathology of the diseases of thousands of patients he has treated over the past decades, and also capturing these on camera in exquisite photographs.
Thieme, the award-winning international medical and science publisher serving both health professionals and students for more than 125 years, has recently concluded an agreement with Enago, an internationally trusted name in author services for the global research community. This collaboration will benefit researchers hoping to improve their chances of being accepted in world class journals by assisting them in enhancing the overall quality of their submissions.
Although there have been significant advancements in minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques in the last few decades, optimal outcomes for chronic low back pain remain elusive. A number of promising clinical trials have been conducted using tissue engineering and biological interventions for disc degeneration. Written by renowned innovators, this is the first book that covers implementation of these ground-breaking approaches for disc disease.
Despite the many advances in diagnostic technologies and imaging modalities in recent years, otoscopy remains the first diagnostic option in the diagnosis of otologic disease.
Ear, nose, and throat diseases present and progress very differently in children than in adults, needing different diagnostic and treatment strategies. Training in the subspecialty of pediatric otolaryngology is often part of a general ENT program and not a program in itself. As such, the general otolaryngologist may be insufficiently prepared to handle certain pediatric cases.
Chronic venous disease is a common condition, with a prevalence as high as 50 per cent in industrialized countries worldwide. Of those, about 20 to 25 per cent of women and 10 to 15 per cent of men have visible varicose veins. Varicose vein treatment has become an increasingly multidisciplinary field, and one that has seen cutting-edge advances and significant growth.
