The third medical atlas in this new series on the human body and filled with detailed pictures, this atlas details the topographical and pathotopographical anatomy of the chest, abdomen, lumbar region, and retroperitoneal space, a useful reference for medical professionals and students alike.

Written by an experienced and well–respected physician and professor, this new volume, building on the previous volume, Ultrasonic Topographical and Pathotopographical Anatomy, and its sequel, Topographical and Pathotopographical Medical Atlas of the Head and Neck, also available from Wiley–Scrivener, presents the ultrasonic topographical and pathotopographical anatomy of the chest, abdomen, lumbar region, and retroperitoneal space, offering further detail into these important areas for use by medical professionals.

This series of atlases of topographic and pathotopographic human anatomy is a fundamental and practically important series designed for doctors of all specializations and students of medical schools. Here you can find almost everything that is connected with the topographic and pathotopographic human anatomy, including original graphs of logical structures of topographic anatomy and development of congenital abnormalities, topography of different areas in layers, pathotopography, and computer and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of topographic and pathotopographic anatomy. Also you can find here new theoretical and practical sections of topographic anatomy developed by the author himself which are published for the first time. They are practically important for mastering the technique of operative interventions and denying the possibility of iatrogenic complications during operations.

This important new volume will be valuable to physicians, junior physicians, medical residents, lecturers in medicine, and medical students alike, either as a textbook or as a reference. It is a must–have for any physician′s library.

This groundbreaking new volume:

Using the same technology as the first two atlases by the same author, solves the problem of visualization of topographical and pathotopographical anatomy
Builds on the author′s previous book, Ultrasonic Topographical and Pathotopographical Anatomy and the sequel, focusing solely on the areas of the chest, abdomen, and surrounding regions
Goes beyond previous attempts, which are often drawings, by using state–of–the–art technology to show detailed physiological areas
Is for medical professionals of all types and levels, from students and professors to working doctors and other medical professionals doing research and development
AUDIENCE:

Physicians, interns, junior physicians, medical residents, medical students, specialists in surgery, traumatology, neurosurgery, oncology, urology, obstetrics and gynecology, dental surgery, anesthesiology, and other medical specialists concerned with different topographical and anatomical structures.

The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, 3rd Edition

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, 3rd Edition
Jun 072018
 

It has been nearly a half-century since the inaugural edition of The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, and the book’s status as a classic was again validated with the second edition a decade ago. This new, third edition maintains the book’s reputation with thoroughly updated content that reflects changes brought about by the publication of DSM-5. The book presents the psychiatric interview in the context of the enormous and ongoing progress that has been made in biological and descriptive psychiatry. In addition, the book emphasizes the shift in the social relationship between patient and clinician, recognizing that the therapeutic alliance has become the foundation of all medical treatment efforts and that patients are now better informed and seek active involvement in treatment decisions. The text reflects this growing equality and supports the clinician’s efforts to nurture the relationship for optimum therapeutic outcomes. The chapter on the traumatized patient has been completely updated for this edition, and a chapter on the patient with dissociative identity disorder has been added. Clinicians familiar with the previous edition will be pleased that its commonsense, easy to-use structure has been retained even as its content has been thoroughly revised. The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice will benefit mental health clinicians, both seasoned and in training, ensuring that their skills are current and their knowledge cutting-edge.

This text illustrates bone marrow aspirate, imprint and biopsy specimens showing characteristic features of a wide variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. While the focus is on Wright-stained smears and hematoxylin-eosin stained biopsies, other key histochemical and immunohistochemical stains are illustrated that are vital for proper diagnosis. After a brief review of the normal bone marrow, reactive changes in the marrow are illustrated, including the bone marrow response in constitutional disorders and to metabolic changes throughout the body. This is followed by specific infectious disorders in the marrow and other non-neoplastic disorders. The remainder of the Atlas illustrates the various neoplasms that involve the bone marrow, including leukemias, lymphomas and non-hematopoietic neoplasms. The hematologic neoplasms are classified using the 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification. This overview of bone marrow disorders illustrates a wide variety of diseases that practicing pathologists and hematologists will encounter in their routine practice.​

Metastatic Spine Disease: A Guide to Diagnosis and Management

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Metastatic Spine Disease: A Guide to Diagnosis and Management
Jun 072018
 

This comprehensive text focuses exclusively on the management of metastatic spinal disease, evaluating the most recent literature and providing patient-centered treatment algorithms. Beginning with initial imaging, classification and clinical decision-making, the spine is approached anatomically from the upper cervical to the sacrum, describing the unique considerations and approaches appropriate to each region, such as laminectomy and stabilization, en bloc spondylectomy and resection and reconstruction. Less invasive and minimally invasive approaches are discussed throughout the text. Radiation therapy modalities and other adjuvant treatments are also discussed, as well as reconstructive flap coverage and the management of complications.
The spinal column is the most common site of metastatic cancer, and a multidisciplinary approach is required to provide patients with reasonable management options to prevent and treat the disabling symptoms caused by this debilitating condition. This compendium of experience from thought leaders in the treatment of metastatic spine disease will provide spine surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, physiatrists and palliative care specialists with up-to-date information to guide their patients through the multidisciplinary management of metastatic spinal disease.
