The use of endoscopic orbital surgery is rapidly expanding in modern day rhinology and oculoplastic practice. In the past two decades, endoscopic techniques have been adapted for lacrimal and orbital surgery. Significant advances have been made in endoscopic endonasal and periocular approaches to the orbital apex and skull base, especially in the last 3 years. There has been no book dedicated to these recent surgical innovations until Endoscopic Surgery of the Orbit: Anatomy, Pathology, and Management by Benjamin Bleier, Suzanne Freitag, and Raymond Sacks filled this void.

Surgical procedures to repair hernias are among the most common procedures of all, with a history going back over 200 years. While most procedures are routine, they can be a challenge, particularly when previous surgery in the area has caused scarring that distorts the anatomy.
Aortic aneurysms can lead to dissections with devastating internal hemorrhage and high rates of death. In a review article recently published in AORTA (Thieme Publishers, New York. 2018), researchers describe the key role played by epigenetics in ascending thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection. Knowledge of these mechanisms may result in new tools for better diagnosis and treatment of these severe conditions.
Breastfeeding is one of the most under-leveraged strategies in improving children’s health and reducing later disease risks. That is why the WHO challenged the world to increase rates of exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months of life up to at least 50 percent by 20251. The Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) supports this goal by communicating the health and social benefits of breastfeeding and breast milk. The new reference book Breastfeeding and Breast Milk – from Biochemistry to Impact edited by FLRF can help governments and influencers take up the WHO challenge.

With an increase in the longevity of the global population, care of the functional, cognitive, and physical health of older adults is essential. There has been a dramatic demographic shift toward a growing aging population and an increase in osteoporotic fractures that has occurred over the last few decades especially in Western countries. This clearly demonstrates the need for a comprehensive approach to treating fragility fractures by surgeons, geriatricians, and care staff.
Neurovascular medicine has emerged as an established, semi-independent subspecialty of neurology and neurosurgery.
