Abstract

Decision-making regarding the route of access to minimize procedural complications, especially in patients with unusual or complicated vascular anatomy, is extremely important for successful vascular access surgery. Several techniques for vascular access are widely disputed in the context of achieving optimal clinical outcomes. This book discusses various clinical aspects of vascular access to enrich our knowledge and understanding of the contemporary methodology and management of vascular access for a broad range of purposes. In four sections, this book examines the following topics: 1. Vascular Access: Methodology and Contemporary Management; 2. Vascular Access and Reparative Surgery; 3. Vascular Access Failure; and 4. Risk Stratification in Vascular Access.

Abstract

Hepatic surgery represents one of the most challenging fields of surgical practice because it combines the need for surgical excellence with that for deep knowledge and understanding of liver physiology. The various hepatic diseases, whether they are benign or malignant, require surgical expertise in their management, especially given the complex anatomy and physiology of the liver, as well as its critical role in a variety of different biologic functions.This book is a collection of chapters offering the reader distilled knowledge of various worldwide experts in hepatic surgery and hepatic physiology. The surgical management, including complex and demanding surgical procedures, of malignancies such as hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and metastatic disease will be addressed in an effort to present the various therapeutic choices in the surgical armamentarium.Emphasis is given to the molecular aspect of the different mechanisms involved, which offers a glimpse into the future, given the ever-increasing need for precision medicine and surgery, leading to a patient-targeted approach.

Abstract

This book, intended for all physicians who are facing patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms, has been assembled by interested, invited authors and contains important topics from basic research to clinical practice. Experimental studies focus on biomechanical and biochemical factors. In clinical practice, the decision to treat, based on risk-benefit ratio, is very delicate in patients with concomitant malignant diseases. Periprocedural risk is determined by anatomy, while aneurysms causing neck pain are one of the most frequent challenges for both open and endovascular methods. Finally, careful planning is crucial. Postoperative complications are different from post-implantation syndrome, which is still an underestimated problem, toward detection and treatment of endoleaks and eventual conversion.

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

Plastic and reconstructive surgery has evolved over the last two decades, with advances in anesthesiology, pharmacology, perioperative medicine, and novel monitoring devices contributing significantly to these patients being able to recover and live safely. Patients with chronic pathologies such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congenital or trauma injuries, changes due to excessive weight loss and others, as well as patient-tourists who have traveled enormous distances are now able to receive cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries that in the past were rejected. The authors of this book also discuss various contemporary topics of anesthesia for plastic and reconstructive surgery that are especially interesting and controversial due to the latest developments on this subject.

Abstract

Hip surgery became a benchmark for large joint surgery development. Surgical techniques for the treatment of degenerative, developmental, and traumatic hip pathologies became a challenge, aiming to restore the patients' ambulation in otherwise disabling pathological conditions of the hip joint. In this book the authors present an overview of the pathological basis of the diseased hip and the currently available surgical solutions that provide long-term relief using a reconstructing surgical approach.The book aims to expose young orthopedic surgeons to exciting and continuously developing information on hip surgery, and experienced colleagues will benefit from concise information that might be beneficial in routine surgical activity.

Abstract

As the most common cardiac valve disease, aortic stenosis is frequently encountered by healthcare providers in clinical practice. It may be suspected from a cardiac murmur found at a routine clinical exam, signs on ECG, heart failure, or an episode of syncope or arrhythmia. Echocardiography as well as other imaging tools provide information about the degree of severity of the stenosis. Nevertheless, careful judgement of potential symptoms is crucial. When it comes to treatment, a catheter-based approach has emerged as the preferred option in many cases, even though open-chest surgery is still standard treatment. Regardless of treatment modality, a multidisciplinary team is needed to provide optimal management of patients with aortic stenosis. This book provides all the necessary information on aortic stenosis, including etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
