This book, now in a revised and updated second edition, offers detailed guidance on the diagnosis, surgical planning, and interdisciplinary treatment of craniofacial trauma. The first part of the book addresses epidemiology, anatomy, radiological diagnosis and innovations, fracture classification, fracture mechanisms, and symptoms. The second part then focuses on treatment, explaining operative principles and providing step-by-step descriptions of a variety of hard and soft tissue reconstructive procedures.
Here, individual chapters are devoted to neurosurgical management, surgical repair of fractures, methods of dural and skull base treatment, osteosynthesis, intraoperative navigation techniques and systems, reconstruction with bone grafts and alloplastic materials, and complications and late sequelae. The book concludes by discussing surgical strategy in complex craniofacial trauma care and presenting a treatment algorithm that takes into account new developments. Craniofacial Trauma will be an indispensable reference for residents in maxillofacial training and for maxillofacial/neurosurgeons in the specialized field of craniofacial traumatology.

IgG4-Related Sclerosing Cholangitis

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on IgG4-Related Sclerosing Cholangitis
Sep 182018
 

This book aims to raise awareness of IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis among practicing physicians and to equip readers with a sound understanding of the principles of diagnosis and treatment. Clinical, serological, and histopathological features are clearly described and imaging appearances on all relevant modalities are illustrated, covering the bile duct and other involved organs. Differential diagnosis from other diseases, including primary sclerosing cholangitis and cholangiocarcinoma, is precisely explained. Information is then presented on all significant current and emerging therapeutic strategies, including steroids, immunosuppressive drugs, and rituximab. Finally, attention is drawn to significant prognostic features. While IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis is now a widely acknowledged condition, most practitioners are still liable to misdiagnose it owing to a lack of familiarity with its presenting features. This book should help to rectify the situation and will be an asset for all who may encounter the disease in clinical practice.

Reporting and Publishing Research in the Biomedical Sciences

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Reporting and Publishing Research in the Biomedical Sciences
Sep 172018
 

This book eases the task of converting research work into a manuscript, and covers the recent developments in publishing that often stump budding researchers.
Few researchers in the biomedical sciences are trained in the essential skills of reporting their results, and they seek help in writing a paper that will be acceptable for publication in the ‘right’ journal, and in presenting their results ‘effectively’ at a meeting. As well as covering the basic aspects of preparing manuscripts for publication, the book discusses best practices and issues relating to the publication of biomedical research, including topics such as peer-review, authorship, plagiarism, conflicts of interest, publication misconduct, electronic publishing and open-access journals. With more than two decades of experience in conducting workshops on writing scientific papers, the editors have brought together the expertise of 29 authors from seven countries to produce this one-stop guide to publishing research in biomedical sciences.

This book is intended for young researchers who are beginning their careers and wish to hone their skills and understand the rigors of research writing and publishing.
