In the tradition of the acclaimed first edition, experts from the University of Cincinnati's Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery present new case reviews. Every chapter presents patient-based scenarios to prepare practitioners for ENT cases they will encounter during rounds, rotations, and patient exams. By establishing a uniform algorithm in obtaining and utilizing discreet points of data, the authors encourage a disciplined approach to patient assessment and management options.
Dr. Margaret Faul, Executive Director Process Development, AMGEN Inc., and Professor Shu Kobayashi are soon to join the editorial board of Science of Synthesis (SOS), the comprehensive, full-text resource for methods in synthetic organic chemistry. Shu Kobayashi is a professor at the University of Tokyo and one of the leading experts on chemical catalysis. He will replace long-time Science of Synthesis editorial board member Professor Masakatsu Shibasaki. Margaret Faul will bring her expertise in chemical process development and research methods in biotechnology to the new task.
Glenn Garcia's Musculoskeletal Radiology Second Edition prepares you to diagnose the full range of bone, ligament, muscle, and joint pathology and is ideal for exam preparation. Included in this book are 100 cases of musculoskeletal disorders, illustrated with clear, high-quality images and now with questions and answers for review. For maximum ease of self-assessment, each case begins with the clinical presentation on the right-hand page; study that and then turn the page for imaging findings, differential diagnoses with the definitive diagnosis, essential facts, pearls and pitfalls, and more.
Based on the landmark work Arterial Variations in Man: Classification and Frequency by Lippert and Pabst, this atlas presents the full range of arterial variations that occur in the human body. Adding an interdisciplinary perspective to the original text, Arterial Variations in Humans: Key Reference for Radiologists and Surgeons shows variations of the arteries with schematic diagrams alongside their corresponding radiological images. Chapters begin with schematic and radiological depictions of normal arterial blood supply, followed by images of the arterial variation, to enable rapid identification of individual variations. This unique resource also includes statistics on the frequency of specific arterial variations and explanations of their embryologic origins.
The gliding nature and dynamic planes of the face present one of the great challenges in aesthetic surgery, and volume replenishment is a key component of the treatment algorithm. Facial Volumization: An Anatomic Approach by Jerome Lamb and Christopher Surek masterfully bridges the gap between the anatomy lab and injection clinic. It synthesizes a large body of facial anatomy publications into a "one-stop shop" covering a wide array of facial procedures – from the chin and perioral – to the midface and temple.
In diagnostic cardiology, the effectiveness and reliability of state-of-the-art echocardiography is unsurpassed but – as with all ultrasound examinations – the results are highly operator dependent. The second edition of Boehmeke's Pocket Atlas of Echocardiography is concise and portable, including all the information necessary to perform and read echocardiograms, and to navigate the bewildering number of imaging planes that transect the heart, with ease and confidence.
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.
