Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient

 Surgery  Comments Off on Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient
Sep 042020

The book describes a practical system for the assessment and management of the surgical patient, whether on the ward, following emergency admission or operation, in the HDU or in the ICU. Surgeons in training must quickly develop their own skills to enable them to look after these patients following an emergency admission, major surgery or unexpected complication. They must also be able to function effectively with colleagues from related disciplines, particularly anaesthesia and intensive care. Critical Care is now an accepted part of surgical practice-within the last few years it has become part of postgraduate exams and more importantly, is part of everyday of the majority of surgeons.
Unlike more formal textbooks, this manual focuses on ‘what to do next’; it is therefore particularly suitable for trainee surgeons engaged in acute surgical practice, as well as those in preparation for postgraduate examinations.

Clinical Application of Computer-Guided Implant Surgery

 Surgery  Comments Off on Clinical Application of Computer-Guided Implant Surgery
Aug 212020

Step-by-Step, Color Presentation of CGIP in Everyday Clinical Practice
Computer-guided implant placement (CGIP) helps clinicians precisely implement a treatment plan and accurately place implants with the use of three-dimensional interactive imaging software. The software enables the direct link between anatomic interpretation, surgical and prosthetic treatment planning, and precise surgical execution. Bone preparation, in relation to the position, angle, and depth of the implant, is guided through computerized digital procedures and patient-specific surgical guides are developed to obtain the optimum result of the insertion of implants in predetermined, prosthetically acceptable positions.
In color throughout, Clinical Application of Computer-Guided Implant Surgery covers the practical application of CGIP in a simple but detailed manner. Step by step, the book guides you on diagnosis and treatment planning, applying the specialized software, and using the necessary instruments and surgical guides. It also explores the strengths and weaknesses of CGIP and discusses literature related to the accuracy and clinical relevance of CGIP.
Using numerous images from clinical cases, this color book helps you understand the treatment pathway, radiographic guides, virtual teeth, imaging techniques, and computer software used for CGIP. The authors—experts in periodontics and image-guided surgery—describe this new philosophy in a way that you can incorporate in your daily clinical practice.
