Pruritus


This book provides a thorough and comprehensive reference in the management of pruritus, designed to be a convenient resource for all physicians confronted with patients suffering from itch. The Editors have recruited a board of internationally renowned experts to provide an in-depth analysis of the causes and management of pruritus, including the current concepts in pathophysiology and novel therapeutics.

Acute and chronic pruritus can represent significant management issues both as a common physiological sensation and as a manifestation of dermatologic and non-dermatologic diseases. All patients suffering from itch know that it is a very awkward sensation. Unfortunately, this often significant symptom is frequently considered less severe in comparison with pain. The consequences are that research on this field has been poorer than research on pain and that pruritus is therefore more difficult to treat.

Pruritus, Second edition addresses the new concepts and discoveries that have modified our understanding of this condition. It explains the pathophysiology of itch, describes all causes, and provides guidelines for management and treatment.

Hair Transplantation: The Art of Micrografting and Minigrafting, Second Edition


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Hair loss affects millions of men and women worldwide. As plastic surgeons and dermatologists seek to expand their practices, hair transplantation is a natural area of focus. This new edition provides these physicians with the information they need to add hair transplantation techniques to their practices.

Dr. Alfonso Barrera and Dr. Carlos Uebel, the two leading experts on hair restoration, have collaborated to produce a totally rewritten and revised book which includes many new techniques and 14 new chapters focusing on cutting-edge topics such as, platelet-enriched growth factors, tissue engineering cloning, and autologous cellular therapy. These world-renowned experts describe the latest techniques of follicular unit micrografting and minigrafting which help physicians avoid the unnatural hairlines and the plugged appearance so characteristic of early transplant procedures. Furthermore, they provide the tools surgeons need to increase the scope of their aesthetic practices and improve the cosmetic results from both aesthetic and reconstructive procedures with updated information to help avoid problems of healing and potential complications.

This beautifully illustrated reference provides the critical insights needed to treat a variety of hair loss problems, ranging from male pattern baldness and female alopecia to scalp scars and sideburn irregularities. Twenty-one comprehensive chapters provide a total approach to evaluation and treatment. Initial chapters contain basic information on anatomy, physiology, and patient evaluation, and they lay a foundation for the detailed, step-by-step operative sequences that follow. Topics covered include basic techniques for treating male and female hair loss, as well as special applications for camouflaging scalp scars; filling in sideburns; restoring and enhancing eyebrows, mustaches, beards, and eyelashes; and treating burn alopecia. Combined face lift and hair transplantation techniques, as well as strategies for reoperation, are also highlighted.

Whether a surgeon is treating major male pattern baldness or attempting to camouflage a scar following a face lift, this book will prove invaluable and is essential reading for anyone performing hair grafting or face-lifting techniques.

One to two DVDs contain the following videos pioneered by these experts:

  • Planting and Dissecting Minigrafts
  • Operative Technique for Treating Male Pattern Baldness
  • Operative Technique for Treating Female Sideburn Loss After Facelift
  • Operative Technique for Reconstructing the Eyebrow, Scalp, Moustache, and Eyelash
  • Performing Facelift and Hair Transplantation in a Single Surgery
