Dupuytren Disease and Related Diseases – The Cutting Edge

In this book, leading international experts showcase the latest advances in research into Dupuytren disease and its clinical management. The coverage spans all relevant specialties, including cell biology, biomechanics, genomics, surgery, pharmacotherapy, and radiotherapy. The opening sections address epidemiology, cellular and extracellular events, and genetics. Treatment by means of collagenase injection, percutaneous needle fasciotomy, and other surgical and minimally invasive approaches is then extensively discussed.  Comparative studies of different approaches are reviewed, and aspects of patient assessment, examined. The prevention and treatment of disease recurrences are also addressed. Further sections consider related conditions, other treatment options, and future pathways for research. This book should be read by all who treat or conduct research into Dupuytren disease. It is based on presentations delivered at the 2015 International Conference on Dupuytren Disease, held in Groningen, the Netherlands, which was designed to promote a coordinated global response to the disease involving patients, scientists, and clinicians.

Minimally Invasive Surgery in Orthopedics

Now revised and expanded into a major reference work, Scuderi and Tria bring together leaders in the field for this update of their classic 2010 text on minimally invasive surgery in orthopedics. Organized anatomically, each section has been reviewed and revised with the most current information and techniques, both common and complex. An entirely new section on analgesics and anesthesia is included, and the former section on the upper extremities is split into three distinct sections on the shoulder, elbow, and hand, respectively, for a more in-depth presentation of these areas. Subsequent sections on the hip, knee, foot and ankle, and spine are similarly reinforced with the state-of-the-art for each region. The final section is reworked to include not only computer navigation strategies but other innovative technologies in MIS as well. Now, as then, this is the go-to reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows seeking a practical understanding of minimally invasive techniques in orthopedics.

The Osteoporosis Book: A Guide for Patients and Their Families

By (author): Nancy E. Lane

Osteoporosis currently affects 25 million people in the United States, and as the baby boomers enter their fifties, this bone-weakening disease is poised to strike millions more. Because of this disease, many older people will suffer from a bone fracture at some point , and far too many of these fractures will result in permanent disability.

The good news is that this devastating “silent epidemic” is entirely preventable, and in The Osteoporosis Book, readers of all ages will find everything they need to know to slow, stop, and even reverse the bone loss that causes this crippling disease. Written by Dr. Nancy E. Lane, a leading investigator and clinician in the field of osteoporosis, it is an indispensable guide to the exciting medical breakthroughs that have taken place in the past few years–in bone density measurement, in estrogen therapy, and in our knowledge of the bone cycle–that now allow doctors to predict who is at risk and to monitor these individuals in their fifties, before a fracture occurs. Readers learn to evaluate–and whenever possible, eliminate–the risk factors in their own lives. “What vitamins should I take? Is hormone replacement therapy right for me? And what about exercise?” The answers are here. And for those already affected by osteoporosis, Dr. Lane provides the most effective and up-to-date medical and practical advice available anywhere for coping with its aches and pains and safeguarding against further deterioration.

Impeccably researched and reassuringly accessible, The Osteoporosis Book empowers readers to make informed healthcare choices that will enhance the quality of their lives for decades to come. It has been endorsed by the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

The Osteoporosis Primer

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Osteoporosis is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among the elderly. The rationale for The Osteoporosis Primer is to provide an introductory text that relates the clinical presentation of osteoporosis to its molecular biochemical basis. The text has been organized into four sections that deal with the molecular/cellular components of bone, the development of peak bone mass, the pathophysiology of aging bone and finally, how all of these relate to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis. The international team of authors includes many leading clinicians and scientists who have provided the reader with a concise, yet comprehensive, synopsis of bone development and skeletal homeostasis. This book will be an essential introduction for individuals working on osteoporosis, including students and doctors considering a career related to metabolic bone disease, general practitioners, geriatricians, rheumatologists, and endocrinologists.

Orthopaedic Issues in Osteoporosis

Orthopaedic procedures in elderly patients are challenging and costly. As the population ages these costs will continue to escalate. ORTHOPAEDIC ISSUES IN OSTEOPOROSIS weaves together theory and applications to provide the first reference available on the orthopaedic aspects of osteoporosis.

The focus on the management of patients who have had a fracture sets this book apart. Featuring extensive coverage of surgical management of osteoporotic fractures, it highlights the challenges of internal repair in osteoporotic bone. The chapters combine the basic and clinical essentials of osteoporosis with the latest orthopaedic findings in applied research and surgical treatment.

Fractures associated with osteoporosis account for the majority of the money spent on this condition. However, the orthpaedic treatment of osteoporotic bone is a formidable surgical problem, and one not covered explicitly in any book – until now. With over 300 tables, line drawings, equations, and macro or X-ray photographs, ORTHOPAEDIC ISSUES IN OSTEOPOROSIS is a long overdue resource.

Friedman in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina to establish the MUSC Orthopaedic Research Laboratory, which is now a multifunctional orthopaedic research center. Dr. An has published more than 100 scientific papers and book chapters and more than 100 abstracts and edited 6 books, including Animal Models in Orthopaedic Research (CRC Press 1999) and Mechanical Testing of Bone and the Bone-Implant Interface (CRC Press 2000). He is an active member of eight academic societies in the fields of orthopaedics, biomaterials, biomechanics, and tissue engineering.
