As of January 1st, 2018, Professor Shu-Li You will join the editorial board of the chemical methods reference work Science of Synthesis (SOS). Professor You, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Organometallic Chemistry at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, China, will take over for Professor E. Jim Thomas. Thomas, formerly Professor for Synthetic Chemistry at the University of Manchester (UK) and co-founder of Science of Synthesis, will leave the editorial board after 17 years of service.
This concise pocket-sized acupuncture guide is what professionals have been asking for! It is the first pocket atlas to cover all the major body and ear acupuncture points, including extensive coverage of the trigger points. Detailed descriptions of the localization, needling depth, indications, and functions of each point are provided. The different schools of ear acupuncture (e.g., Chinese vs. Nogier), often a source of confusion for practitioners, are presented side by side, usually in full-page illustrations, enhancing this book's usefulness as a daily reference guide.
Enclosed within the deep and complex structures of the hip joint and the surroundings, acetabular fractures confront the orthopaedic surgeon with great challenges. A number of critical neurovascular structures in the vicinity are imperiled; the hip joint itself requires utmost care in surgery to preserve biomechanical stability over the long term and to postpone the development of posttraumatic osteoarthritis in the young to middle-aged patient collective.
The femtosecond laser has emerged as a groundbreaking game-changer in ophthalmic surgery. It was first introduced for corneal refractive surgery in flap creation during LASIK, and subsequently for cataract surgery in 2008. The femtosecond laser cuts deeply on a single plane without collateral damage. Its high precision and safety result in excellent outcomes in the hands of experienced eye surgeons, benefiting virtually everyone.
This essential guide encompasses the core principles of Manual Lymph Drainage and Complete Decongestive Therapy for a wide range of pathologies across the age continuum. Key elements from the prior edition are incorporated, such as color-coded sections for anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Advances in the field are reflected in expanded chapters and efficacy meta-analyses, updates on genetics, refinements in manual compression, and new insights on fat disorders and edema.
Many serious, potentially blinding eye disorders have a genetic basis. Currently, there are relatively few ocular geneticists in the world, yet inherited eye disease is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. Significant strides have been made in gene identification and acquisition of knowledge on the underlying mechanisms of hereditary eye disease. The field of ocular genetics is becoming an increasingly relevant part of ophthalmologists' purview. This has resulted in a dire need for a comprehensive textbook ophthalmologists and other professionals who work with patients with genetic disorders can utilize to gain a better understanding of inherited eye disorders.
An internationally renowned and beloved author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Professor Albert Rhoton has a special place in medical history. He was revered by students and colleagues and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern microscopic neurosurgery. A driving principle in his anatomy lab was the simple phrase, "Every Second." This was embraced in his philosophy that every second of every day, a patient's life was improved by a surgeon assisted by the anatomic knowledge his lab helped elucidate and distribute.
Reconstructive surgery of the upper extremity has progressed significantly due to advances in microsurgical techniques, which include the increased popularity of perforator flaps, refinements in functional free muscle transfer, the application of nerve conduits and nerve allografts, motor nerve transfers, and hand transplantation. These innovations have helped surgeons achieve functional reconstruction goals and enabled patients' return to normal functioning earlier than previously possible.
The Fifth Edition of Luellmann's Color Atlas of Pharmacology has been extensively revised to include all recent advances and new drugs, and the illustrations have been optimized and updated. Each two-page spread presents concise text on the left complemented by detailed full-color illustrations on the right to help users quickly digest important facts and concepts.
As in the acclaimed prior editions, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Fourth Edition focuses strictly on anatomy, 3D reconstruction, and step-by-step surgical techniques. Written by Peter-John Wormald, the richly illustrated text details anatomy and operative treatment of sinonasal conditions such as nasal polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), Samter's triad, eosinophilic mucus CRS, exophthalmos, acute orbital hemorrhage, orbital subperiosteal abscess, and a wide array of tumors.
The value of MR imaging for the evaluation of musculoskeletal system disorders cannot be over-stated. It is the only imaging modality that enables visualization of all components of the joints within single examinations. Yet, given the bewildering variety of possible sequence parameters, with and without contrast medium, acquiring and interpreting MR images with confidence is a challenge, requiring experience usually only gained after examining 1000s of studies with a careful systematic approach.
Video Atlas of Ophthalmic Suturing: Fundamentals and Techniques by Steven Brooks, MD, is the first multimedia atlas dedicated to effective suturing and knot tying skills in ophthalmic surgery. The text and videos not only cover essential suturing techniques, but merge these concepts with critical principles of wound healing, tissue biomechanics, ergonomics, and the physical properties of common ophthalmic sutures and surgical needles. This atlas fills a significant knowledge gap in educational ophthalmic surgery literature, and greatly enhances the fundamental knowledge and skills provided in ophthalmic surgical training programs.
OCT Angiography by David R. Chow and a cadre of renowned authors is an authoritative, richly illustrated guide on a groundbreaking new ophthalmic imaging technique. Optical coherence tomography angiography is revolutionizing ophthalmologic diagnosis and management of retinal disease. The technology is transforming the ocular disease diagnostic paradigm – from the retina to the choroid – enabling precision-tailored patient management.
Now in full color, the revised and updated second edition of David Goldenberg's and Bradley Goldstein's acclaimed, award-winning Handbook of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery is the GOLD standard among pocket guides for this specialty. Packed with information in an all-encompassing scope, yet conveniently portable, this book's reader-friendly organization (and superb index) is designed for quick reference. Sections cover Otology, Rhinology, Laryngology and the Upper Aerodigestive Tract, Head and Neck Surgery, Pediatric Otolaryngology, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, General Otolaryngology, and (new for this edition) Endocrine Surgery.
