Abstract
This book presents all the current evidence in assessing and making decisions for patients. The multi-disciplinary team of authors pool their knowledge to bring the most up-to-date information regarding the underlying diseases, diagnostics and non operative therapies found in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery. The chapters reflect the constant efforts made by the authors to evaluate the current evidence, make the correct decisions and provide the best clinical care for their patients. Difficult Decisions in Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery: An Evidence-Based Approach reflects the challenging decisions faced by busy, thoughtful surgeons specializing in these fields of surgery. It is a timely resource for practicing surgeons, surgeons in training as well as educators that describes the recommended ideal approach, rather than customary care, in selected clinical situations.

Abstract
Drawing on an extensive series of cases, this book describes and illustrates in detail the FDG-PET/CT appearances of the most common lymphomas in both adults and children, covering presentations at various anatomic sites. In addition, all other aspects of the current application of FDG-PET/CT in the evaluation and management of patients with malignant lymphomas are described. Full explanations are provided of the potential benefits and limitations of advanced PET/CT techniques and technologies that support novel chemotherapy and radiotherapy approaches in the treatment of lymphoma, and particular attention is paid to the major challenge of incorporating progress in quantitative imaging technology into radiotherapy treatment planning, guidance, and monitoring. This clinical case-based atlas will be an invaluable tool for radiologists, hematologists, and clinical oncologists.

Abstract
This book systematically describes the angioarchitecture of the spinal cord. Microradiographs of superficial and intrinsic arterial supply and venous drainage patterns provide the anatomical basis needed to understand spinal vascular disorders. These post mortem studies are supplemented by clinical spinal angiographies and case studies. Rapid advances in imaging technology have facilitated the solution of many diagnostic problems concerning diseases of the spine and spinal cord. But this is less true for vascular diseases of the spinal cord or diseases secondarily involving them. Furthermore, safely using interventional procedures or open surgery still requires a profound knowledge of the vascular anatomy involved. Accordingly, a growing demand for training in this special field has become evident over the last 25 years, making improvement of this knowledge in all Neuro-Specialities dealing with diagnostic and therapeutic problems of spinal disorders a highly desirable goal.

Abstract
Featured as a single volume, this is a comprehensive guide to possible nerve entrapment syndromes and their management. Each chapter covers a single nerve, or group of closely related nerves, and goes over the clinical presentation, anatomy, physical exam, differential diagnosis, contributing factors, injection techniques, neurolytic/surgical techniques, treatments of perpetuating factors, and complications. Nerve entrapments can occur throughout the body and cause headaches, chest pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, low back pain, and upper and lower extremity pain. As an example, one of the most common forms of nerve entrapment syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, affects roughly 1 in 20 people in the United States, and is only one of several types of entrapment syndromes possible for the median nerve. Chapters are also extensively illustrated and include 3D anatomical images. The additional online material enhances the book with more than 50 videos - at least 2 for each nerve. This enables readers to easily navigate the book. In addition to a conventional index it includes a "Pain Problems Index" for searching by symptom. Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a long-needed resource for pain physicians, emergency room physicians, and neurologists.

Abstract
Based exclusively upon clinical cases covering fractures of the distal radius, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists with the best real-world strategies to properly manage the multifaceted surgical techniques for management of the distal radius and distal radial ulnar joint (DRUJ). Each chapter begins with a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate the various uses of the volar locking plate for metaphyseal and periarticular fractures, among others, as well as management strategies for open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) for the radial styloid. Ulnar styloid and ulnar head/neck fractures are likewise described. Pediatric distal radius fractures and complications round out the presentation. Pragmatic and reader friendly, Distal Radius Fractures: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, hand and upper extremity surgeons and sports medicine specialists confronted with both common and complex fractures to the distal radius and DRUJ.

Abstract
This book addresses a wide range of topics relating to head and neck and endocrine surgery, including: maxillofacial injuries, surgery of the scalp, surgery of the salivary glands, jaw tumors, surgery of the oral cavity (lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, and palate), swellings and ulcers of the face, inflammation in the neck, cervical lymphadenopathy, midline and lateral neck swellings, tumors of the pharynx, and endocrine surgery (thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, suprarenal glands, and neuroendocrine tumors). The aim is to clearly describe and illustrate how to diagnose and treat diverse conditions in accordance with evidence-based practice. The coverage thus extends beyond surgical indications and procedures to encompass aspects such as anatomy, clinical presentation, and imaging diagnosis. The book has been structured in such a way as to facilitate quick reference. While it is primarily intended for practitioners, it will also be suitable for upper graduate students.

Abstract
This book provides dental professionals with a clear understanding of current clinical and scientific knowledge on the various aspects of pulp treatment for both primary and young permanent teeth. Diagnostic parameters are clearly presented, along with step-by-step descriptions of clinical procedures, including indirect and direct pulp treatments, pulpotomy, and pulpectomy. The rationale for the materials used in each technique and their individual merits and disadvantages are examined in detail. In the case of pulpotomy, all the materials used since the introduction of this treatment modality are discussed (e.g., formocresol, glutaraldehyde, ferric sulfate, and MTA) and the roles of sodium hypochlorite, electrofulguration, and laser therapy are elucidated. Special attention is devoted to pulpectomy and root canal treatment, with consideration of debriding and obturation techniques, rinsing solutions, and root-filling pastes. A further individual chapter is dedicated to restorations of teeth treated with the different types of pulp therapy. The various conservative treatment modalities are also presented, including specific treatments for immature nonvital permanent teeth. The concluding chapter looks to the future and the potential value of stem cells in pulp therapy.

Abstract
Presenting a multidisciplinary approach to the prevention and management of injuries to young tennis players, this unique book considers multiple factors contributing to the increasing numbers of such sports-related injuries, such as increased young athlete participation in tennis, the pre-professionalization of younger players and misconceptions surrounding treating children in the same manner as adults. Beginning with the essentials for developing tennis players and their physical and mental growth with the sport, the text then turns to prevention and management techniques and strategies covering the upper and lower extremities, shoulder and elbow, hip and knee, and spine, as well as other acute medical conditions. Further consideration is given to proper strength and conditioning, rehabilitation and return to play. Edited by clinicians directly involved in the care of young tennis players and including contributions from physical therapists, sports psychologists, and physicians, it is an invaluable and comprehensive resource for any professional seeing and treating young tennis players.

Abstract
This second edition provides a comprehensive view of consolidated and innovative concepts, in terms of both diagnosis and treatment. Written by leading international physicians and investigators, this book emphasizes the necessity of combining local and systemic treatments to achieve the objective of yielding higher cure rates and lower toxicities. Heavily updated from the previous edition, it highlights new surgery and radiotherapy techniques, disease awareness, patient quality of life, and comprehensive management. Head-and-neck cancers are a complex clinical entity and their response to treatment is also known to vary markedly in function of host-related factors. Notwithstanding the impressive progresses observed in the field of imaging, head and neck cancers are often diagnosed at a late stage and the presence of locally advanced disease in a significant number of patients implies the use of aggressive treatments in order to both ensure local disease control and reduce distant metastasis risks. In comparison with the first edition, Head and Neck Cancer, Second Edition provides a detailed update of innovative concepts in chemo- and bio-radiation, viral infection impact on tumor growth and response to treatment, and impact of tumor- and host-related factors on treatment outcome.

Abstract
This book offers essential guidance on selecting the most appropriate surgical management option for a variety of spinal conditions, including idiopathic problems, and degenerative disease. While the first part of the book discusses the neuroanatomy and biomechanics of the spine, pain mechanisms, and imaging techniques, the second guides the reader through the diagnostic process and treatment selection for disorders of the different regions of the spine, based on the principles of evidence-based medicine. I.e., it clearly explains why a particular technique should be selected for a specific patient on the basis of the available evidence, which is carefully reviewed. The book identifies potential complications and highlights technical pearls, describing newer surgical techniques and illustrating them with the help of images and accompanying videos. Though primarily intended for neurosurgeons, the book will also be of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, specialists in physical medicine, and pain specialists.

Abstract
This user-friendly book is a practical guide to the diagnosis of testicular tumors and rare tumors of the penis. It describes and illustrates pathology findings for each tumor type and provides information on clinical features, differential diagnosis, tumor staging, and prognostic factors. Since an effective dialogue between urologists and pathologists is essential for optimal patient care, due attention is paid to such aspects as the role of frozen section in the management of small testicular nodules and the accurate reporting of testicular and penile neoplasms to ensure that all knowledge required for diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making is available. The key information is presented in straightforward tables for ease of reference. This book, which includes more than 250 full-color photos, is not only a valuable resource for surgical pathologists and pathology residents but also an important reference tool for all clinicians who care for patients with genitourinary tract tumors.

Abstract
This book provides research-oriented care providers with up-to-date information on the oral cancer patient population, the ways in which we are treating them, and the scientific approaches being pursued in order to improve survival and reduce treatment-related morbidity. The text is organized into three sections covering epidemiology and management, cancer development and biomarkers, and breaking developments and novel approaches for drug discovery. The first section includes discussion of the emerging role of human papillomavirus in oral cancer and explains the surgical, chemotherapy, and radiation approaches to treatment. Aspects such as molecular progression and signaling, the role of cancer stem cells in tumor development, and the value of various biomarkers are then examined. The final section is devoted to the latest advances and covers, among other topics, current clinical trials, emerging drug targets, and targeting of the unfolded protein response and of mediators of coagulation. Recent decades have witnessed a significant increase in the number of deaths worldwide from cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and oropharynx. Targeting Oral Cancer will be an excellent resource for practitioners and researchers and will hopefully assist in the urgent quest to improve screening and prevention, diagnosis, and treatment approaches.

Abstract
This text provides a comprehensive review of the ethical issues involved with the development, evaluation, and introduction of new treatments of gastrointestinal diseases. How several landmark surgical innovations were developed are described to show the challenges faced, and the ethical dilemmas these innovators dealt with. The challenges of dealing with regulatory issues, and how to work with industry partners, and investors when working on a new therapy is described. Once a new technology has been brought to the market, standards need to be developed regarding the training, credentialing and adoption of the new technology. There are insufficient standards of how to balance the desire to provide patients the latest therapy with the obligation that patients receive informed consent about the new technology, and the relationship that the physician may have had with product development. The book describes the national perspective of paying for new technology, and provides one insurance company's approach to the introduction of innovative therapy. The Sages Manual Ethics of Surgical Innovation will be a resource for surgeons, researchers and health policy personnel to understand the ethical issues related to the development, introduction and adoption of innovative therapies for gastrointestinal diseases. Although the context for discussion is the application of innovation to gastrointestinal disease, the ethical issues are applicable to any discussion of innovative medical or procedural therapies.
