Achieve superior results in the centrofacial area (key to the emotional expressiveness of the face) with the techniques in this video!
Physical aging of the face is a multifactorial process that affects a crucial aspect of aesthetics: emotional expression. Centrofacial Rejuvenation examines the detrimental effects of volume loss and reduced skin surface quality in the aging process of the face and the restorative power of volume replacement. The fat grafting techniques described in this text will help plastic, aesthetic, and maxillofacial surgeons obtain a more natural facial rejuvenation result with longer stability than many other available techniques.
In the last two decades, spine instrumentation and surgery have undergone many improvements. The second edition benefits from contributions by renowned orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons who helped create and refine the systems described in the book, and devoted their careers to educating next generations of spine surgeons.
Neurosurgery Rounds: Questions and Answers, Second Edition by Mark Shaya and an impressive cadre of coauthors and contributors, thoroughly prepares medical students and residents for common yet challenging questions frequently encountered during neurosurgery rounds. The convenient, easy-to-follow format provides diverse coverage of multiple disciplines intertwined in the understanding, care, and treatment of neurosurgical patients.
The treatment of skin cancer has become an increasingly multispecialty practice. Ongoing surgical and postsurgical advances and emergent factors that predispose patients to these tumors have changed the treatment paradigm. Having a keen understanding of diagnostic, surgical, and nonsurgical treatment options is key to identifying, treating, or referring patients with potential cutaneous malignancies.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound has seen a considerable surge in usage in recent years. Its advantages are manifold. Given adequate training of the examiner, it is very cost-effective; there is no ionizing radiation to contend with; the scanners are normally highly portable; and it enables certain interventional procedures to be performed with great accuracy (therapeutic injections of local anesthetics and/or corticosteroids into areas of complex anatomy, e.g., the shoulder).
With the latest release of their definitive full-text resource for synthetic organic chemistry, Science of Synthesis (SOS), Thieme has added a total of 1,378 printed pages of new content. SOS 4.9 includes knowledge updates on the synthesis of pyrazoles and enol ethers as well as on the application of the Mannich reaction in synthesis. The new Reference Library volume focuses on catalytic oxidation in organic synthesis.
Ever since the International Human Genome Project achieved its extraordinary goal of sequencing and mapping the entire human genome, represented by approximately 3 billion base pairs, with its far-reaching implications for understanding the causes of human genetic disorders and their diagnosis, progress in the field has not slowed down.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among men and women in the U.S. and worldwide. For many decades, lung cancer was the sole cancer among the deadly four without an evidence-based screening method for decreasing mortality. This changed in November 2011, when findings from the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial showed low-dose lung CT screening was more efficacious in reducing deaths in high-risk individuals than conventional radiography. As such, an ever-increasing number of health organizations now recommend this screening protocol.
