Farquharson's Textbook of Operative General Surgery
Margaret Farquharson
ISBN-10: 0340814969
ISBN-13: 978-0340814963
Hodder Arnold




This new edition continues this tradition, presenting all the operations that the trainee surgeon may be expected to undertake, and discussing the basic techniques available and the reasons for their application. Techniques and options are described in sufficient detail to allow any surgeon who has limited experience of a particular procedure to proceed with confidence and safety. The text is thus also valuable for qualified surgeons practicing in smaller hospitals worldwide where specialized advice may not otherwise be available. This ninth edition has been fully updated, with many chapters entirely rewritten. New contributing authors bring their particular experience in sub-specialties such as vascular medicine, orthopaedics and trauma, all of which overlap with the work of the general surgeon. Farquharson's Textbook of Operative General Surgery remains an unrivalled aid to training in operative surgical procedures, and an invaluable ready reference for the more experienced surgeon working in a variety of settings and locations.

Surgery alone cures more than 60% of those patients whose cancer are amenable to curative treatment. Surgical oncology is not universally accepted as a unified discipline worldwide. There are many reasons for this situation, including the drive to anatomic site specialization, but also the need to provide comprehensive 'general' surgical provision to more isolated and rural communities.
Textbook of Surgical Oncology, written by a highly acclaimed list of international authors, comprehensively covers the role of the surgical oncologist in the management of patients with solid tumors. This book provides a state of the art review of cancer surgery for senior residents approaching certification at the completion of their training as well as providing an up to date reference work for established clinicians in their day to day practice, including those in general surgery, surgical oncology, urologists, gynecologists, thoracic, neurosurgical, radiation oncologist and medical oncologists.

(Developments in Hematology and Immunology)
C. Th. Smit-Sibinga
ISBN-10: 038723599X
ISBN-13: 978-0387235998
Springer




This proceedings of the last Groningen symposium presents a wealth of information on developmental immunology, the molecular basis of haematopoeisis, physiological basis of bleeding and thrombosis, transfusion risks and benefits and lastly, future therapies. Infants provide us with much to learn but in turn they will be the providers of (through cord blood) and the recipients of (through cellular engineering) the best that science can offer. Translational research, which has been the thrust of these presentations for 28 years, will benefit them in a way that no scientist could have ever predicted.

The study of rare lung disorders enhances our understanding of common pulmonary diseases such as fibrosis and emphysema. Molecular Basis of Lung Disease: Insights from Rare Disorders brings together a panel of distinguished clinicians and molecular scientists who are experts in a range of rare lung diseases and their underlying molecular defects. Each chapter focuses on the pathogenic mechanisms and therapeutic targets suggested by basic research and follows an easy to read format: brief introduction followed by discussion of epidemiology, genetic basis and molecular pathogenesis, animal models, clinical presentation, diagnostic approaches, conventional management and treatment strategies, as well as future therapeutic targets and directions. Disorders ranging from the Marfan and Goodpasture’s syndromes to Sarcoidosis and alpha one antitrypsin deficiency are treated in detail. Written for pulmonary clinicians and scientists alike, Molecular Basis of Lung Disease: Insights from Rare Disorders is a comprehensive and invaluable resource that sheds new light on the molecular mechanisms influencing the clinical presentation and treatment strategies for these debilitating disorders.

Mirela V. Simon
ISBN-10: 193386446X
ISBN-13: 978-1933864464
Demos Medical Publishing




Intraoperative Neurophysiology utilizes a unique structure to provide insights into successful monitoring practices and techniques. The book uses the steps of each surgical procedure as the skeleton upon which the IOM procedure is built, thereby presenting a developmental step-by-step approach to IOM procedures and the possible complications and pitfalls - that may arise at different moments of the surgery. In addition, it promotes and encourages the use of EEG in the operating room, and offers unprecedented coverage of ECoG, functional mapping, and EEG monitoring.

Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual, 3rd ed. 2009



Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual
(Lecture Notes in Mathematics; 727)
Lee John Skandalakis, John E. Skandalakis, Panajiotis N. Skandalakis
ISBN-10: 0387095144
ISBN-13: 978-0387095141

 



The success of any operative procedure is dependent, in part, on the surgeon’s knowledge of anatomy. From the first incision to closure of the wound, it is essential to understand the fascial layers, blood supply, lymphatic drainage, nerves, muscles and organs relevant to the operative procedure. Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual covers the anatomic regions pertinent to general surgeons and also describes the most commonly performed general surgical techniques. New to this edition are sections on abdominal aortic aneurysm, femoropopliteal bypass, carotid endarterectomy, hysterectomy and oopherectomy, and the entire book has been updated to reflect current surgical approaches. Medical students and residents will find this book to be an excellent way to prepare for a case, and more experienced surgeons will appreciate the anatomic review and contemporary approaches to common surgical problems.

Oncology of CNS Tumors, 2nd ed. 2010



Oncology of CNS Tumors
Jörg-Christian Tonn, Manfred Westphal, J. T. Rutka
ISBN-10: 364202873X
ISBN-13: 978-3642028731
Springer



The rapidity with which new diagnostic procedures and treatment modalities are being developed within neuro-oncology means that experts continually have to strive to ensure that their knowledge remains up-to-date. With this in mind, the editors have prepared a new, revised edition of Neuro-oncology of CNS Tumors that takes account of the very significant advances made since publication of the well-received first edition. The clear structure of the first edition has been retained as it ensures that the book will serve as an easy-to-use reference, providing ready guidance on diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter addresses a particular disease, and great efforts have been made to include all findings and other information likely to be relevant in clinical practice. Once again, the contributors have been carefully selected and are leading experts on their subject. This book will prove of great value to both practicing clinicians and researchers in the field of translational neuro-oncology.
