Challenges in Cataract Surgery: Principles and Techniques for Successful Management

 Surgery  Comments Off on Challenges in Cataract Surgery: Principles and Techniques for Successful Management
Apr 092018
 

This book presents the principles and pearls for successful surgical management of challenging situations encountered during cataract surgery. A wide range of settings are considered, including cataract surgery in patients with uveitis, traumatic cataract, dislocation of an intraocular lens, intumescent cataract, brunescent cataract, combined cataract and corneal disease, combined cataract and glaucoma, pediatric cataract, and refractive cataract surgery. In addition, preoperative factors conducive to a favorable surgical result are identified and appropriate management of postoperative complications, described. As longevity increases, cataract is becoming an even greater public health issue worldwide. The use of cataract surgery, already one of the most frequently performed surgeries, is consequently increasing still further – a trend reinforced by developments in instrumentation and technology and improvements in access to surgery. However, comorbidities and challenges during surgery are very common. Challenges in Cataract Surgery will be a valuable reference for all residents, fellows, and practicing ophthalmologists who wish to improve their surgical techniques and outcomes

The SAGES Manual of Bariatric Surgery, 2nd edition

 Surgery  Comments Off on The SAGES Manual of Bariatric Surgery, 2nd edition
Apr 072018
 

Morbid obesity is an epidemic as more than 2/3 of the United States population is obese and as such, has a high burden of weight-related co-morbid diseases. Bariatric surgery has proven to be effective and durable for treatment of severe obesity. Technological advances including applications of laparoscopy and endolumenal techniques have rapidly advanced this field. Data and outcomes examining treatments have also improved and as providers, we have a wide spectrum of therapeutic options to treat patients.

As techniques and outcomes have evolved, access to a comprehensive yet focused resource regarding bariatric surgery is currently limited. The proposed textbook is designed to present a comprehensive and state-of the-art approach to the current and future status of Bariatric interventions, which has changed significantly since the first edition of the Manual. Updates in this version will include the rapidly expanding field of endoluminal bariatric procedures, with a focus on new devices and theories of mechanisms. New data regarding laparoscopic approaches to treat obesity, as well as improved longer-term data outcomes will be reviewed. Newer surgical approaches to treat metabolic disease and obesity are included, as well as proposed mechanisms of action and efficacy. Additional new sections include sections on the application of robotic technologies, special circumstances including transplantation and pregnancy, and telemedicine and social media in bariatric surgery.

Sections will address the evolution in specific treatments available to patients, initial evaluation and selection of procedures for individual patients, the latest surgical and endoscopic techniques being employed to treat patients including data on outcomes, and future directions for therapy. In particular and unique amongst references, a major focus of this text will be on both the bariatric and metabolic bases of therapies and outcomes.

The SAGES Manual A Practical Guide to Bariatric Surgery, Second Edition aligns with the new SAGES UNIVERSITY MASTERS Program. The Manual supplements the Bariatric Surgery Pathway from Competency to Proficiency to Mastery. Whether it’s for Biliary, Hernia, Colon, Foregut or Bariatric, the key technical steps for the anchoring bariatric procedures are highlighted in detail as well as what the reader needs to know to successfully submit a video clip to the SAGES Facebook Channels for technical feedback. Readers will also learn about how to count credits for Bariatric from the other Master Program Series, Guidelines, Top 21 Videos, Pearls, FLS, FES, FUSE, SMART and Annual SAGES Meeting. The Masters Program promotes lifelong deliberate learning.

Knots in Orthopedic Surgery: Open and Arthroscopic Techniques

 Orthopedics, Surgery  Comments Off on Knots in Orthopedic Surgery: Open and Arthroscopic Techniques
Apr 052018
 

This well-illustrated book presents the state of the art in suture materials and provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to tie the most frequently used knots. The opening section addresses terminological issues and describes how the biological and mechanical properties of suture materials may impact on healing potential.
The basics of knot biomechanics are explained, highlighting the risk of failure of knots and sutures if their capacities are exceeded. Subsequent sections give precise instructions on the tying techniques for the various open and arthroscopic knots, including the square knot, the surgeon’s knot, half hitches, and sliding and non-sliding knots. The special instruments available to facilitate the tying of arthroscopic knots are thoroughly discussed, equipping the surgeon with the knowledge required to ensure optimal handling of the soft tissues and manipulation of sutures in arthroscopic surgery. A literature review on suture materials and arthroscopic knots completes the coverage. This book is published in cooperation with ESSKA. It will be a valuable instruction manual for surgeons in training and will supply more experienced surgeons with an excellent update that will further enhance their practice.

Temporomandibular Joint Total Joint Replacement – TMJ TJR

 Surgery  Comments Off on Temporomandibular Joint Total Joint Replacement – TMJ TJR
Apr 052018
 

This is the first text that deals specifically with TMJ TJR. Each chapter is authored by either a basic science researcher or clinician known for their interest and expertise in this field. The text provides the reader with state-of-the-art analysis of all aspects of total temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJ TJR), starting with cutting-edge evidence on the biomechanics of the TMJ. The intriguing history of TMJ TJR is presented to provide an understanding of why some prior TMJ TJR devices failed and how what was learned from those failures has led to the improvements exhibited in present TMJ TJR devices. Expert chapters discuss both stock and custom designs, their indications and contraindications, primary operative techniques, combined TMJ TJR and orthognathic surgical techniques, and the devices’ adaption for use as segmental or total mandibular replacement devices after ablative surgery. Clinical outcomes and avoidance as well as management of complications are detailed. Numerous helpful illustrations and radiographs are presented to assist readers in understanding and carrying out the described procedures. Important evidence from both the orthopedic and TMJ TJR literature relating to material sensitivity and mechanical wear will be reported. Finally, the role bioengineered tissue may hold for the future of TMJ TJR will be discussed.

Tracheostomy: A Surgical Guide

 Surgery  Comments Off on Tracheostomy: A Surgical Guide
Apr 042018
 

Despite often taken as a simple procedure, techniques on tracheostomy have evolved considerably on the last few years. Consequently, new technical variations and indications for different purposes are being developed and proposed. The current book is proposed to serve as a comprehensive guide exclusively devoted to tracheostomy, discussing its most important details, variations and indications.
Here the reader will find a broad discussion ranging from the most basic pre-clinical aspects to post-surgical procedures and complications. Great emphasis is placed on key topics such as the oncologic patient, variations of the technique, and tracheostomy in the intensive care unit, among others. Additionally, some issues that are not commonly discussed in regular textbooks, like tracheostomy in child and in great obese, are also included. With a wealth of photos, illustrations and tables, Tracheostomy – A Surgical Guide provides the material necessary to support a safe and effective surgical intervention in different populations and surgical contexts, with the hope that it will result in improved care for patients who underwent tracheostomy.
