Advances in endoscopic sinus surgery have led to development of applications never imagined before for treating both adult and pediatric patients with sinus disease. Since 1925, when Maltz introduced for the first time a telescope in the nose, an incredible diag­ nostic tool was born; Since then, European and American visionares such as Kennedy, adopted the technique and perfectioned it to our days, when the application of the “new millenium” technologies, have made endoscopic endonasal procedures a fascinating chapter of nasal surgery. Attention to the details of this complex treatment strategy is needed to reap the full benefits of it, to avoid complications and to recognize unsolved problems in order to make every treatment the ideal one. As an ENT surgeon, you must keep in mind that the single most important contraindication for endonasal surgery, is not some kind of nasal condition but the inability of a surgeon to understand the intrincated and complex anat­ omy and physiology, knowledge of them both are the most valuable tools when perform­ ing a surgery, making it safe and helpful to the patient.

Atlas of Endoscopic Anatomy for Endonasal Intracranial Surgery

 Anatomy, Surgery  Comments Off on Atlas of Endoscopic Anatomy for Endonasal Intracranial Surgery
Jan 232019
 

It is only recently that the use of the endoscope as the sole visualizing tool has been introduced in transsphenoidal pituitary surgery with its favorable related implications and minimal operative trauma. Of course, microscopic and endoscopic anatomy are basically the same, but the optical distorsion of endoscopic images is quite substantial compared to microscopic depictions. An endoscope lens produces images with maximal magnification at its center and severe contraction at its periphery. Nearer images are disproportionally enlarged and remote images are falsely miniaturized. This optical illusion may disorientate a surgeon who is not familiar with this peculiar condition at the skull base. This atlas acts as a guide through the endoscopic anatomy and gives detailed descriptions of the preoperative management and the surgical procedures.

Diseases of the Brain, Head and Neck, Spine: Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Techniques

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Radiology, Surgery  Comments Off on Diseases of the Brain, Head and Neck, Spine: Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Techniques
Jan 212019
 

The International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) offers a unique learning experience for imaging specialists in training as well as for experienced radi­ ologists and clinicians wishing to be updated on the current state of the art and the latest developments in the fields of imaging and image-guided interventions. This annual course is focused on organ systems and diseases rather than on modalities. This year’s program deals with neuroradiology and radiology of the spine. During the course, the topics are discussed in group seminars and in ple­ nary sessions with lectures by world-renowned experts and teachers. While the seminars present state-of-the-art summaries, the lectures are oriented towards fu­ ture developments. These proceedings represent a condensed version of the contents presented un­ der the 20 topics dealing with imaging and interventional therapies in the neuro­ radiology and radiology of the spine. The topics encompass all the relevant imag­ ing modalities including conventional x-rays, computed tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiography, as well as image-guid­ ed interventional techniques. The volume is designed to be an “aide-memoire” for the course participants so that they can fully concentrate on the lectures and participate in the discussions without the need of taking notes. Additional information is found on the web page of the IDKD (httpll:www.idkd.ch).

Coronary Bypass Surgery in the Elderly: Ethical, Economical and Quality of Life Aspects

 Surgery  Comments Off on Coronary Bypass Surgery in the Elderly: Ethical, Economical and Quality of Life Aspects
Jan 182019
 

Coronary artery bypass surgery in the elderly: Too often or too seldom? It is a testimony to scientific advances that raising a simple inquiry today, such as whether coronary artery bypass surgery is done too often or too seldom in elderlypatients, requiresanexplorationofwhatviewsonemightholdonseveral medical as well as non-medical issues. Unlike earlier years when doctors were clinically free to decide what should be done with a patient, health has become an expensive human right, decisions about which also involve the patient, the epidemiologist, the health policy administrator, politicians, the exchequer, and the philosopher. In its broadest definition health has come to mean the core of well-being and, therefore, the goal ofany socio-economic system. Until only a decade ago, medical opinion regarding how often coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) was indicated or useful was unclear. Becauseof multi-organ senescence, the elderly were expected to have a higher rate operative morbidity and mortality and, having crossed an advanced life span, might not live very long after the operation. Decision making on medical grounds first depends on knowing if a patient can survive an operation compared to how long they would survive without it, i. e.

Advances in Abdominal Surgery

 Surgery  Comments Off on Advances in Abdominal Surgery
Jan 142019
 

General surgery consists ofa main corpus of propaedeutic elements and clinical problems, which has been modified over the years by the separate development of numerous sub-specialistic branches. Although a common basis on the physiopathology of surgical trauma and post­ operative complications persists, as a result of general knowledge of surgical diseases, there is no doubt that in the spheres of doctrine and application, both research and clinical medicine have distinguished themselves autonomously in many surgical fields (orthopedics, neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, etc.). It is therefore difficult to define the present configuration ofgeneral surgery, but without question abdominal surgery occupies a position of pre-eminent importance within the general framework. We are dealing, in fact, with pathological pictures which occur in a section ofthe body ofvast proportions, in which structures, organs, and morphologically complex spaces are arranged to carry out important functions. They are, therefore, subject to considerably complex pathological alterations, such as to establish an interesting field of diagnostic discussion and an exciting training-ground for surgical activity. It can be affirmed that the diagnosis and cures ofabdominal surgical diseases constitute a test ofthe surgeon’s experience. Diagnosis is often entrusted to a differential process, the results ofwhich may be confirmed today by complementary diagnostics. This, however, must be guided by predominating clinical considerations, the exaggerated use of diagnostic techniques, detached from clinical examination, being the cause of very serious errors, which can mislead decision making and human contact, which is the basis ofcorrect medical practice.

Surgical Management of Cleft Lip and Palate: A Comprehensive Atlas

 Surgery  Comments Off on Surgical Management of Cleft Lip and Palate: A Comprehensive Atlas
Jan 052019
 

This atlas provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance on surgical management of the cleft lip, alveolus, and palate. In particular, it demonstrates how an anatomical approach to management provides a sound basis for dealing with the many variations in cleft type. The displaced anatomical borders and landmarks, as well as the functional and aesthetic units, are fully described.
The art of dissecting them from their abnormal position is illustrated, and their reconstruction into a normal and functional shape is meticulously explained. The main treatment philosophy underlying the described approach is that children born with cleft deformity should be “cleftless” by the time they enter the first grade of primary school. They must have normal speech. They should not have a fistula or residual cleft in the palate and/or the alveolus. And they should have a normal face so that they can confront the challenges of life without cleft stigmata. Both novice and more experienced surgeons will find this atlas to be a valuable aid to optimal treatment, and readers will have online access to videos of the described surgical procedures.
