This book provides clinicians with state of the art information on the use of zygomatic implants to restore function and improve quality of life. International experts come together to showcase important innovations and advances in techniques that will assist in the optimization of outcomes. Readers will find information on indications, biomechanics, the role of imaging, digital treatment planning, and all aspects of implant placement. Individual chapters are devoted to different procedures, including the extramaxillary surgical technique, extended sinus lift with retained bone window, the anatomy-guided approach, the quad zygoma technique, and static and dynamic guided surgery. The use of zygomatic implants specifically in oncology patients is also given detailed consideration. Today, the zygomatic approach offers many advantages for patients with severe maxillary resorption, in whom grafting was in the past unavoidable. In providing an up-to-date global perspective on the zygoma concept, this book will be an invaluable source of guidance for practitioners at all levels of experience.

Succeeding in Academic Medicine: A Roadmap for Diverse Medical Students and Residents

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Succeeding in Academic Medicine: A Roadmap for Diverse Medical Students and Residents
Mar 272020
 

This first-of-its-kind book for underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities (URM), women, and sexual and gender minorities in medicine offers the core knowledge and skills needed to achieve a well-planned, fulfilling career in academic medicine. The knowledge and skills provided by the esteemed co-authors, successful diverse pre-faculty, and junior and senior academicians, are complemented by their inspirational and motivational stories.
Increasing diversity in the academic medicine workforce has been identified and embraced as a core value of institutional excellence at nearly all academic institutions and professional associations. Despite this established core value, certain groups such as Black/African-American, Latino/Hispanic, American Indian/Alaska Native-identified individuals, women, and sexual and gender minorities, are still present in lower proportions compared with the general population and lack inclusion. In 12 chapters and with a unique focus on a practical approach to increasing diversity and inclusion in academic medicine, this book demystifies the often-insular world of academic medicine. It comprehensively outlines career opportunities and associated responsibilities, how to transform academic-related work to scholarship, and offers a clear and transparent look into the academic appointment and promotion process. By focusing on the practical steps described in this handy book, students and residents can develop a strong foundation for an academic medicine career and succeed in becoming the next generation of diverse faculty and administrators.

Total Knee Arthroplasty

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Total Knee Arthroplasty
Mar 262020
 

“Take away my knee pain and give me better motion”. This is what the arthritic patient expects from a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). By virtue of standardization of the TKA procedure, surgeons can nowadays solve the pain issue for the majority of the patients.

Restoration of function is a goal of a different order and forms the scope of this book. The editors confronted today’s leading knee surgeons with the limitations of current surgical techniques and technology. They challenged them to define new thresholds of functional capacity after Total Knee Arthroplasty. “A Guide to Get Better Performance in TKA” describes the cutting edge in surgical techniques, prosthetic design and achievement of excellent function for these patients.

Opioid Therapy in Infants, Children, and Adolescents

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Opioid Therapy in Infants, Children, and Adolescents
Mar 242020
 

Opioid analgesics are among the most effective medications for pain management but are associated with serious and increasing public health problems, including abuse, addiction, and death from overdose. Currently, there is an opioid epidemic in the United States with the rate of prescription opioid-related overdose deaths quadrupling over the last 15 years. Pediatric patients are particularly vulnerable to the devastating consequences of opioid misuse. Adolescents who are prescribed opioids are at a higher risk for abusing illicit drugs later in life. Clinicians managing pediatric pain must account for such issues while still delivering effective analgesia to young patients who suffer from both acute and chronic pain.
Opioid Therapy in Children and Adolescents is designed to explore the unique aspects of opioid therapy in pediatric patients. An introductory framework provides historical context and describes the epidemiology of the opioid crisis with focus on pediatric implications. Subsequent chapters focus on pediatric opioid pharmacology, safe opioid prescribing practices, and non-opioid alternatives to managing pediatric pain states, including multimodal analgesic strategies, interdisciplinary approaches, and complementary medicine. Mitigation strategies against pediatric opioid diversion and misuse are addressed to help clinicians develop practice changes that protect pediatric patients from opioid-related morbidity and mortality. Clinical case examples are also utilized throughout the text to provide grounding for each chapter and a context within which to examine pertinent issues.

This first of its kind book provides a comprehensive approach that will guide clinicians to appropriately and safely prescribe opioid analgesics to pediatric patients suffering from pain. It is an invaluable resource for pediatricians, family practitioners, anesthesiologists, pediatric oncologists, and other clinicians who manage pediatric pain.
