This book represents the first interdisciplinary text on the emerging field of rehabilitative surgery, in which state of the art procedures from multiple surgical specialties are combined. It proposes a completely new framework for understanding, coordinating, and providing treatment for paralyzed or severely neurologically impaired patients and explains the potentially critical impact of surgery in creating a new baseline of functional status, thereby improving the patient's daily life. Every major aspect of reconstructive surgical treatment is considered, including anesthesia, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, vascular surgery, and otolaryngology. The most up-to-date and evidence-based surgeries are clearly described and evaluated, with coverage of treatment of pressure sores, placement of feeding tubes, and upper extremity interventions to improve function and hygiene. Cutting-edge protocols are presented for the surgical treatment of severe nerve injuries, spinal cord injuries, and stroke or cerebrovascular accidents, and a first description and evaluation of phrenic nerve repair to assist weaning of paralyzed patients from ventilators is provided. Both surgical and nonsurgical readers will find this book to be an ideal guide and reference.
This atlas, featuring numerous superb illustrations and vivid photographs, aims to create a bridge between research and practice in the field of periodontal plastic surgery and cosmetic dentistry with a view to enabling optimal decision making in daily practice. After an opening overview of evidence-based decision making and discussion of treatment planning, subsequent chapters address the surgical treatment of recession-type defects, use of soft tissue substitutes, aesthetic clinical crown lengthening and peri-implant plastic surgery. Illustrated case studies depict application of the described surgical procedures in daily practice and advice is provided on clinical indications and contraindications and basics of the surgical sequence. In addition, critical summaries of the results of systematic reviews are provided. Further chapters consider aspects of multidisciplinary decision-making and present decision trees for soft tissue augmentation procedures proposed by the American Academy of Periodontology. The atlas will be a valuable clinical guide for general dentists and specialists in periodontology/periodontics and implantology.
"Ballenger" was first published in 1908. It has appeared in 10 languages and sold 150,000 copies worldwide. Over two-thirds of the authors are new to this edition. The editorial leadership for the 17th edition has been expanded to include P. Ashley Wackym as Editor, and it includes 101 chapters (increased from 67) with sections on otology and neurotology, rhinology, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, pediatric otorhinolaryngology, laryngology and bronchoesophagology, head and neck surgery and increased emphasis on molecular medicine. Color illustrations appear throughout this edition. The presentation of basic science underlying clinical otorhinolaryngology has been expanded and chapters on clinical topics are structured to provide comprehensive coverage for the clinicians. Disorders of smell and taste, balance and hearing, voice, speech and language are also emphasized provide comprehensive coverage of the discipline. The 17th edition presents a comprehensive compendium of current knowledge in otorhinolaryngology head and neck surgery and provides full coverage needed by practitioners in the 21st century. New chapters include Stereotactic radiosurgery, Biofilms, Outcomes and clinical research, Robotic surgery and Chemoradiation. Senior authors were chosen not only for original contributions but also for their intellectual leadership of the specialty. Basic science and clinical chapters stress the role of molecular biology in the pathogenesis of disease. Throughout, the genetic basis of disease has been emphasized. The book is a unique blend of state-of-the-art clinical techniques, methods and outcomes together with coverage of basic mechanisms and science. It provides students, residents, fellows and practitioners with the understanding necessary to participate fully in the use of molecular biology in therapy.
Addressing graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics, this book presents a new formulation of the theory of gravity. In the new approach the gravitational field has the same ontology as the electromagnetic, strong, and weak fields. In other words it is a physical field living in Minkowski spacetime. Some necessary new mathematical concepts are introduced and carefully explained. Then they are used to describe the deformation of geometries, the key to describing the gravitational field as a plastic deformation of the Lorentz vacuum. It emerges after further analysis that the theory provides trustworthy energy-momentum and angular momentum conservation laws, a feature that is normally lacking in General Relativity.
