Abstract

This handbook covers the technical, social and cultural history of surgery. It reflects the state of the art and suggests directions for future research. It discusses what is different and specific about the history of surgery - a manual activity with a direct impact on the patient’s body. The individual entries in the handbook function as starting points for anyone who wants to obtain up-to-date information about an area in the history of surgery for purposes of research or for general orientation. Written by 26 experts from 6 countries, the chapters discuss the essential topics of the field (such as anaesthesia, wound infection, instruments, specialization), specific domains areas (for example, cancer surgery, transplants, animals, war), but also innovative themes (women, popular culture, nursing, clinical trials) and make connections to other areas of historical research (such as the history of emotions, art, architecture, colonial history). &#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

Dieses Weißbuch beschreibt die Versorgungssituation bei endoprothetischen Hüft- und Knieoperationen in Deutschland. Gelenkersatzoperationen im Bereich der Hüfte und des Knies zählen zu den häufigen Operationen, die zumeist wegen eines altersbedingten Gelenkverschleißes, der Arthrose oder bei Schenkelhalsfrakturen, notwendig sind. Angesichts des demografischen Wandels werden die Ansprüche an die Versorgung der Betroffenen und die Verfahren steigen.

Abstract

In this chapter I have endeavoured to demonstrate the ways in which an&#xD;approach that takes the emotions seriously might nuance and complicate&#xD;our understandings of the history of pre-anaesthetic surgery. In general,&#xD;historians have tended to focus on the operations of surgical dispassion, or&#xD;what we might now term clinical detachment. What this research suggests,&#xD;however, is that compassion and emotional expression played a surprisingly&#xD;important role in shaping the cultures of early nineteenth-century operative&#xD;surgery as well as the identities of its practitioners. In the decades immediately&#xD;preceding the advent of anaesthesia, pain became a central concern of&#xD;surgical discourse and the response to this concern was shaped by the cultures&#xD;of sentiment and sensibility. However, this culture of compassion was&#xD;no ‘natural’ reaction to a self-evident problem. Rather, it was a culturally&#xD;and historically contingent phenomenon which could be harnessed to the&#xD;ideologies and ambitions of medical reform. In the hands of men like John&#xD;Bell and Thomas Wakley, the image of the surgeon as a man of refined and&#xD;honest sentiment was linked to a critique of the medical and surgical ancien&#xD;regime, providing an idealised representation of a more expert, meritocratic&#xD;and altruistic profession.

Abstract

This open access book presents the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of neurovascular diseases, and offers expert opinions and advice on avoiding complications in neurovascular surgery. It also covers complication management and post-operative follow-up care. The book is divided in to three parts; the first part discusses common approaches in neurovascular surgery, describing the steps, indications for and limitations of the approach, as well as the associated complications and how to avoid them. The second part addresses surgical treatment based on pathology, taking the different locations of lesions into consideration. The third part focuses on the technological developments that support neurovascular surgery, which may not be available everywhere, but have been included to help vascular surgeon understand the principles. This book is a guide for young neurosurgeons, neurosurgery residents and neurosurgery fellows, as well as for medical students and nurses who are interested in neurosurgery or are associated with this field in any way. It is also a useful teaching aid for senior neurosurgeons.

Abstract

The Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry first introduced the concept of “Interface Oral Health Science”, designed to establish and maintain healthy oral cavities, which are home to a number of mixed systems. Included in those systems are: (1) host tissues such as teeth, mucosa, muscle and bone, (2) parasites and microorganisms cohabiting the surfaces of the oral cavity and (3) biomaterials that are used for the rehabilitation of oral functions. In addition, (4) these systems are subject to severe and complex mechanical forces. Therefore, it is critical to promote dental studies that integrate a wide range of interdisciplinary research as medicine, agriculture, material science, engineering, and pharmacology. With this incentive, international symposiums for interface oral health science have been held several times in the past. The concept has since refined and expanded, the result being the “Biosis-Abiosis Intelligent Interface,” and projects aiming at the creation of highly functional and autonomic intelligent interfaces are ongoing. This book brings together a number of studies on incentives and projects by leading authors. Topics include biosis-abiosis interface of dental implants, biomaterials in interface science, biomedical engineering interface and cell manipulation and tissue regeneration. Readers not only from the field of dentistry but also many related areas will find this book a valuable resource.

Abstract

This volume broadens understanding of dentistry and promotes interdisciplinary research across a wide range of related fields, based on the symposium entitled "Innovative Research for Biosis–Abiosis Intelligent Interface 2016". It aims to create highly functional and autonomic intelligent interface by combining highly functional interface science with the technology of an evaluation and a control at the interface, with the various topics of biomaterials, innovation for oral science and application, regenerative oral science, and medical engineering. Since 2002, the Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry has hosted “Interface Oral Health Science” several times as the main theme of dental research in the twenty-first century, and this is the sixth proceedings of the symposiums following the ones in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2014.This book benefits not only dental scientists but also other health scientists including medical physicians and pharmacologists, material scientists, engineers, and any scientist who is involved in variety of disciplines.

Abstract

This open access book looks at the dramatic history of ovariotomy, an operation to remove ovarian tumours first practiced in the early nineteenth century. Bold and daring, surgeons who performed it claimed to be initiating a new era of surgery by opening the abdomen. Ovariotomy soon occupied a complex position within medicine and society, as an operation which symbolised surgical progress, while also remaining at the boundaries of ethical acceptability. This book traces the operation’s innovation, from its roots in eighteenth-century pathology, through the denouncement of those who performed it as ‘belly-rippers’, to its rapid uptake in the 1880s, when ovariotomists were accused of over-operating. Throughout the century, the operation was never a hair’s breadth from controversy.
