Cutting-edge neck dissection resource provides expert guidance on its use in a wide spectrum of head and neck pathologies

Dissection of critical structures of the neck is integral to head and neck surgery, for both benign and malignant neck masses and diagnoses of the head, skull base, and cervicothoracic junction. Neck Dissection by Brendan Stack and Mauricio Moreno is a comprehensive treatise on state-of-the-art neck dissection. With contributions from an impressive cadre of international leaders in head and neck surgery, this in-depth, yet concise evidence-based guide covers fundamental and advanced principles of cervical lymphadenopathy surgery.

The book begins with preoperative evaluation of cervical lymphadenopathy candidates, history of procedures, international nodal level classifications, and surgical neck anatomy. Subsequent chapters address the subtleties between different dissection modalities including radical, modified radical, selective, supraomohyoid, and salvage, as well as insights on complications and rehabilitation. Current imaging methods are discussed in context with anatomical structures and malignancies, including cross-sectional, ultrasound, and integrated FDG-PET/CT. Pathology and adjuvant therapies for malignant diseases of the neck are also discussed.

All the latest trends and technical innovations for both routine and complex hernia repair

Surgical procedures to repair hernias are among the most common procedures of all, with a history going back over 200 years. While most procedures are routine, they can be a challenge, particularly when previous surgery in the area has caused scarring that distorts the anatomy.

All currently established operative techniques are described and explained in detail in the book and illustrated, step by step, with a wealth of brilliant figures and diagrams. A detailed description of laparoscopic anatomy and preperitoneal procedures is given. Important information regarding indications and postoperative care is provided.

New surgical treatment concepts for hernia arising in the early 21st century and expounded in this book include tension-free principles, inguinal hernia repair under local anesthesia, use of the preperitoneal space, and laparoscopic hernia repair.

Key Features

3D mesh and patch-and-plug procedures
Laparoscopic methods such as the single-port technique and mini-technique
New developments in open and laparoscopic surgery of incisional hernias
Special disorders such as sports hernia
Richly illustrated with hundreds of exquisite artist renderings
Ideal for all surgeons in training, and of benefit to experienced surgeons as well, Schumpelick’s Hernia Surgery is a complete introduction to evidence-based techniques in this field.

Providing the inside track on how the experts approach and deal with real-world clinical scenarios, Challenging Concepts in Emergency Medicine selects specific challenging cases that are encountered in everyday clinical practice but do not have simple answers. A case-based guide to challenging areas in emergency medicine, this book covers the core and sub-specialty areas, in particular the often grey areas of intensive care and paediatric emergency medicine. Complex cases are comprehensively examined from a multidisciplinary perspective with detailed consideration given to management options and the contemporary evidence base behind these decisions.

An effective revision aid for MCEM and FCEM and a reference during workplace-based assessments, Challenging Concepts in Emergency Medicine highlights critical information through the use of boxed features: ‘Learning points’, ‘Clinical tips’, ‘Evidence base’, and ‘Future advances’. Each chapter has been reviewed by a national or international expert in the field and they have provided an ‘Expert commentary’, giving a unique insight into how today’s opinion leaders confront and deal with the very same management challenges that all clinicians can potentially face on a daily basis.

Containing summaries of current national and international guidelines, this book is ideal for continuing medical education and revalidation as well as for trainees preparing for examinations.
