This practical surgical atlas focuses on a variety of surgical procedures in a portable format, allowing students, residents and even attending surgeons to carry it around with them throughout the day to check up on operations at any given time.
The comprehensive illustrations help the reader to understand the procedures described, thanks to inter-operative photographs which provide accurate representations of the various techniques of the operations.
The wide scope of this book ensures coverage of the most common general surgery procedures and the most common operations that faculty, residents and students encounter.
Presenting the most current and relevant information on the diagnosis and management of primary ovarian insufficiency, also known as premature ovarian failure (POI/POF), this book presents two equally important voices. The first is the scientific, evidence-based voice discussing the latest information on POI/POF in a concise and logical fashion: etiologies, symptoms, genetics, mechanisms, associated conditions, as well as psychological and lifestyle considerations. The second voice presents the first-person stories of affected women, who are often faced with a diagnosis of irreversible infertility at a very young age and who somehow learn to live with great uncertainty about their ability to create a family – a core identity issue for many women. It is thus not simply a clinical, case-based presentation, but a more collaborative effort between clinicians who are well-versed in the field and women who have POI/POF. Primary Ovarian Insufficiency: A Clinical Guide to Early Menopause will therefore be an excellent practical yet personal reference for OB/GYNs, reproductive medicine specialists, and any clinician, nurse or health care worker treating women living with POI/POF.

Written by two experienced toxicology lecturers, Principles of Toxicology provides a broad-based yet in-depth introduction to this diverse subject. Comprehensive and easy-to-read, the book covers this broad and interdisciplinary field from the viewpoint of three different functional levels: molecular and cellular; physiological; and ecological and environmental. This revised second edition expands the coverage of the book while keeping the organizational format that made the first edition a bestseller. It also includes a series of brief case studies illustrating the application of toxicological principles to current issues of interest.
Each and every chapter has been revised, several have been significantly rewritten, and three are entirely new. This new edition retains the extensive cross-referencing system that links all sections and enhances the integration of material. It also includes an appendix of selected toxicants that describes chemical structure and category of use. These features combine to make finding specific information quick and easy. The highly readable format and uniform, consistent presentation of information will make this the most used reference on your shelf.
In the days of tall ships, one dreaded foe was responsible for more deaths at sea than piracy, shipwreck and all other illnesses combined: Scurvy. Countless mariners suffered an agonizing death, which began with bleeding gums, wobbly teeth, and the opening of old wounds. Surgeon James Lind, Captain James Cook and physician Sir Gilbert Blane undertook to solve the riddle of Scurvy. Their achievements heralded a new age and cracked the greatest medical mystery of the Age of Sail.
Drug Stereochemistry: Analytical Methods and Pharmacology, Third Edition covers all aspects of chiral drugs from academic, governmental, industrial, and clinical perspectives, reflecting the many advances in techniques and methodology.
The use of enzymes in the synthesis and resolution of enantiometrically pure compounds in drug discovery
How stereochemistry impacts decisions made in the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity (ADMET) stages of drug discovery
Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and the issues faced during the final stages of the drug development process
The impact of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) on the use of single isomer drugs
The concept of molecular chiral recognition and how it affects the separation and behavior of stereochemically pure drugs
Patent issues surrounding chiral switches and the marketing of single enantiomer switches
The book provides a solid background on stereochemistry, from its early history, including an overview of terms and concepts, to the current drug development process, legal and regulatory issues, and the new stereoisomeric drugs. It is a one-stop reference for pharmaceutical scientists and chemists working with chiral drug molecules.

This textbook explores the history, biology, and treatment of acid related diseases, including gastric and duodenal ulcer disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and the role of H. pylori. The text offers thorough coverage of the subject matter, with an in-depth historical and biological focus. Equal focus is given to the biology and pharmacology of acid secretion and to the specific disease states of ulcers and GERD. This edition is full of new full-color medical illustrations of all aspects of this topic.
From humble beginnings over 25 years ago as a lipid kinase activity associated with certain oncoproteins, PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase) has been catapulted to the forefront of drug development in cancer, immunity and thrombosis, with the first clinical trials of PI3K pathway inhibitors now in progress. Here we give a brief overview of some key discoveries in the PI3K area and their impact, and include thoughts on the current state of the field, and where it could go from here
Ideal for self-assessment and USMLE Step 1 review.
