Dec 272018
 

This is an up-to-date, comprehensive yet concise guide for orthopedic surgeons covering the salient points of anatomy and operative approaches to periprosthetic fractures of the hip and knee: breaks in bone that occur around the components or implants of a total joint replacement. The opening chapters focus on the epidemiology, classification, work-up, anatomy and knowledge of the biomechanics and biology behind the treatments. The subsequent chapters then proceed anatomically from the hip to the knee, and will be case-based and focused on management strategies for the particular periprosthetic fracture with either a stable or a loose prosthesis as well as associated complications, including fractures of acetabulum, the greater trochanter and proximal femur, distal femur, tibia, and interprosthetic and interimplant fractures.

Focused on surgical technique and with plentiful, practical tips and tricks, Periprosthetic Fractures of the Hip and Knee is a valuable resource for orthopedic and trauma surgeons, residents and fellows.

Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery: A Comprehensive Textbook

 Surgery  Comments Off on Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery: A Comprehensive Textbook
Dec 272018
 

Minimally invasive surgery has impacted the outcomes of surgery more than any technology since the development of sterile technique. The hard science has demonstrated that decrease in wound complications and recovery time has created the biggest gap with open approaches to surgery. The total economic benefit may be unfathomable when looked at comprehensively. Integral to the rise of minimal access and therapeutic techniques in surgery has been the growth of technological improvements over time.
Beginning with insufflators, videoscopy, and energy devices, that evolution has continued into the development of tele-surgical devices that feature full articulation of instruments, high-resolution 3-D optics, and computer assisted movement. This has come with controversy – as the dominant manufacturer of robotic assisted devices, Intuitive Surgical, and their generations of da Vinci surgical platforms, holds enough market share to spur cries of monopoly and financial excess. However, with over 3000 world-wide systems in use, and over 6000 peer-reviewed research articles, the impact of robotic surgery cannot be ignored. The current state of data suggests equivalency in most procedures with regard to traditional outcome measures, equal or somewhat elevated costs, with specific areas of superiority.
The first section of this textbook, Surgical Robots, covers the history, economics, training, and medico-legal aspects of robotic surgery that will be of interest to students, residents, fellows, surgical staff, and administrators or public health specialists who seek to gain a comprehensive background on robotic surgery, or justification for purchasing a robotic system for their institution. Surgeons will also find this background valuable to their practice, to give context to their procedures so they can better counsel their patients, help with advocating for robotic platform purchases, and proactively prepare themselves for medico-legal issues. The chapter on legal issues will have specific instances of robotic surgery-related lawsuits and their outcomes, a first for robotic surgery texts. The second section of this textbook, Robotic Procedures, will contain a comprehensive catalogue of procedures that have been performed robotically in general surgery, gynecology, urology, plastic surgery, cardiothoracic, and otolaryngology. Each author will cover the existing literature, preoperative planning, room and patient setup, steps of the procedure, and postoperative care. Standardized room maps and port placement will help the student, resident, fellow, surgeon or OR Staff to quickly reference these before cases. Each chapter will also cover the specific equipment needs and expected complexity of the procedures, allowing administrators to better gauge how to prepare for, or ration, use or their robotic resources.
The final section, Future of Robotics, will give the entire scope of audience a look into what exciting advancements in the field are on the horizon.
This textbook is a complete resource for robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery, covering the history, current state, technical and clinical aspects, and future considerations that may be of interest to any who has a role, stake, or curiosity regarding robotic surgery.

Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery: Deviance, Desire and the Pursuit of Perfection

 Surgery  Comments Off on Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery: Deviance, Desire and the Pursuit of Perfection
Dec 122018
 

Examining the fascinating history of female genital cosmetic surgery, Camille Nurka traces the origins of contemporary ideas of genital normality. Over the past twenty years, Western women have become increasingly worried about the aesthetic appearance of their labia minora and are turning to cosmetic surgery to achieve the ideal vulva: a clean slit with no visible protrusion of the inner lips.
Long labia minora are described by medical experts as ‘hypertrophied,’ a term that implies deformity and the atypical. But how far back does the diagnosis of labial hypertrophy go, and where did it originate? Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery tells the story of the female genitalia from the alien world of ancient Greek gynaecology to the colonial period of exploration and exploitation up to the present day. Bringing together historical, medical, and theoretical documentation and commentary, Nurka uncovers a long tradition of pathologizing female anatomy, a history sure to be of interest to any reader who wishes to know more about how medicine shapes our commonly held ideals.
