Laparo-endoscopic Hernia Surgery: Evidence Based Clinical Practice

 Surgery  Comments Off on Laparo-endoscopic Hernia Surgery: Evidence Based Clinical Practice
Jul 122018
 

This book is distinctive in that it focuses exclusively on current laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques for inguinal, primary and incisional abdominal wall, and hiatal hernias. Individual steps in diagnosis and treatment are described by experts in the field, but this clinical expertise is also integrated with the best available external evidence from systematic research as encapsulated in statements, recommendations, and guidelines.
The reader will thus not only learn how to perform techniques systematically and reproducibly but also come to understand which of the procedures have been scientifically validated by studies, reviews, and meta-analyses and which have simply developed empirically. The descriptions of technique are supplemented by detailed guidance on such aspects as indications, anesthesia, aftercare and pain management, and the prevention and management of complications. Where appropriate, careful comparisons are made of competing repair options, including open techniques. In summary, this book will help practicing surgeons to standardize their operative technique so as to reflect current scientific knowledge and thereby improve the quality of laparoscopic/endoscopic hernia surgery.

Diabetes Epidemic & You is not a cliché! It is a mandate for the awakening of the “silent” millions worldwide with “normal” fasting blood sugars and undiagnosed diabetes. If you have a “normal” fasting blood sugar, You may be one of the undiagnosed millions. Yes, I do mean You.

Since Hippocrates’ time, earliest diagnosis provided the greatest opportunity for treatment and cure. This book highlights the earliest identification of type 2 diabetes by utilizing the insulin assay with the oral glucose tolerance.

My cumulative experience of 14,384 oral glucose tolerances with insulin assays established the earliest diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes when the blood sugars were normal. Prediabetes is type 2 diabetes. The tolerances were separated according to age groups, from 3 – ­13 years to 81 – ­90+ years. Each group was further divided into normal glucose tolerances, impaired glucose tolerances, and diabetes mellitus glucose tolerances. You, upon testing by oral glucose tolerance, will be in one of these categories.

This resource of oral glucose tolerance with insulin assay is unequaled in world medical literature. The importance of early diagnosis is that the clinical pathology of diabetes mainly heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cataracts, erectile dysfunction, and other metabolic disorders occurs not only in those with advanced diabetes, but also in those with “normal” blood sugars.

Yes, this could happen to You! When early diagnosis is coupled with specific therapy, the Diabetes Epidemic will be arrested and then reversed. Early diagnosis is the goal of this book beginning with You.
