Abstract

The prevalence of anorectal disorders in the general population is probably much higher than that seen in clinical practice. Anorectal diseases have for a long time been considered of little interest, with their treatment considered of little prestige despite the social impact they cause to patients. Proctology was initiated late and developed slowly over the years. However, in the last 20 years, a renewed interest has begun, and today, we can say that proctology is a specialized branch of general surgery. This book ""Proctological Diseases in Surgical Practice"" provides a practical introduction to proctology, with a particular attention to the topics that have not yet been investigated. This book may be useful for the general physician as well as for the specialist.

Abstract

In the recent years changes in gastrointestinal surgery have experienced great acceleration, based on a better understanding of the pathophysiology of the diseases, evolving technologies, and new therapies. In many areas of gastrointestinal surgery, new therapeutic and technical results have been accessible because of better connections with well-known pathological evolutions of diseases, more detailed diagnostic perspectives, and wide employment of mini-invasive and laparoscopic procedures.

Abstract

Approximately 100 years ago, after the first diagnostic laparoscopy and subsequent developments, the adventure began with laparoscopic appendectomy and cholecystectomy and reached a point where any surgical procedure could be performed easily. Today, many endoscopic surgical procedures have an important role not only in general surgery, but also in the daily practice of many surgical branches. This vertiginous development and change of speed make rapid replacement of the visual and printed materials necessary for training in this area. This book is prepared by surgeons who are very successful in their field.

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 book demonstrates specific osteotomy techniques from the skull to the hallux. The role of osteotomy in the correction of deformity is under appreciated in part because of the ubiquitous nature of joint replacement surgery. It should be remembered, however, that osteotomy has a role to play in the correction of deformity in the growing child, the active young adult, and patients of any age with post-traumatic deformity limiting function and enjoyment of life. In this text we bring you a number of papers defining specific problems for which osteotomy is found to be an effective and lasting solution. I hope you find it useful.
