Abstract
This atlas provides a concise overview of the principle of fat grafting and its clinical applications to treat aging in the central areas of the face in a minimally invasive manner. The authors start with a short description of the anatomical basis of facial aging and by presenting current facial rejuvenation techniques. Here the emphasis is on the process of harvesting and preparing macro-, micro-, intradermal and nano-fat for injection. Thanks to the book's numerous illustrations and short descriptions, readers will find valuable information on where and how to inject the fat combined with the authors' individual techniques and refinements. Aging is a major issue in today's society. Facial rejuvenation procedures seek to enhance the final outcome and durability of surgery and to minimize drawbacks. The current trend is to use less invasive methods requiring fewer incisions, which produce more natural-looking results. This atlas shows the authors' personal techniques to help achieve that goal.

Abstract
The first two sections of this text address endoscopic and keyhole surgical procedures for cranial base and deep brain structures. These sections provide a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this minimally invasive field and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons and researchers with an interest in cranial base surgery. The philosophy, techniques, indications and limitations of endoscopic and keyhole cranial base surgery are covered in detail. This reference includes a discussion of the basic principles of these approaches as well as the preoperative planning, intraoperative pearls, and reconstruction techniques. The thorough descriptions of the practical and technical aspects are accompanied by extensive illustrations, figures and operative images. Extending beyond the technical details of these procedures, this text provides a third section that focuses on a thorough analysis and comparison of the endoscopic, keyhole and traditional open approaches to specific intracranial regions. Utilizing a “target-based” approach, the utility of each surgical technique is evaluated in regard to accessing pathology of the anterior, middle and posterior fossa cranial base as well as the deep central regions of the brain. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information. Endoscopic and Keyhole Cranial Base Surgery will be a valuable resource to specialists in optimizing surgical results and improving patient outcomes.

Abstract
Due to significant advances in minimally invasive techniques, the endovascular approach is being increasingly used in the treatment of vascular diseases. Endovascular interventions avoid the trauma of conventional surgery, particularly for patients who are at high risk due to age or comorbidity. Endovascular Interventions: A Case-Based Approach presents the current methodology underlying the endovascular treatment of peripheral arterial and venous disorders. Using a case-based approach, it presents readers with a range of complexities and complications encountered in daily practice, together with tips and tricks for overcoming them. The editors, Robert Dieter, Raymond Dieter, Jr., Raymond Dieter, III, and Aravinda Nanjundappa, are recognized for their work in interventional cardiology and cardiothoracic and vascular surgery and bring a unique perspective to the use of these approaches. The chapters are written by leading international authorities in endovascular treatment of arterial, venous, and lymphatic vessels and discuss the conditions for which these interventions are appropriate, including intracranial strokes, restenotic lesions, subclavian artery stenosis, upper and lower extremity artery disease, ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm, abdominal aortic aneurysm, complications of intra-aortic balloon pumps, vasculitis, and iatrogenic aortic dissection. This book is a practical guide and valuable resource for practicing vascular specialists, interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, and cardiothoracic surgeons. Foreword by Denton A. Cooley, MD, President Emeritus and Surgeon-in-Chief, Texas Heart Institute.

Abstract
Endovascular neurosurgery is a recently introduced but rapidly evolving medical field, which uses minimally invasive interventions to treat major life-threatening vascular lesions of the Central Nervous System. Although its history counts less than 15 years of worldwide acceptance, it has rapidly displaced the traditional open neurosurgical techniques, being nowadays the first treatment choice for brain aneurysms and vascular malformations. Thus, the experience of each neuroendovascular center and performer is invaluable, offering the base for learning and teaching the new generation of interventionalists as well as for the evolvement of the method itself. This book presents the basic principles of endovascular neurosurgery starting from clinical cases. Through this close-to-clinical-reality-process, the reader will be able to more thoroughly understand the pathophysiology of the brain and spine vascular lesions as well as the decision-making strategy, related to the indications, endovascular methods and results, finding suggestions and solutions to his/her clinical questions and problems. Besides chapters devoted to CNS vascular embryology and anatomy, clinical cases organized in groups based on the treated lesions are introduced: ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms of the anterior and posterior circulation, side-wall and bifurcation aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVM), dural arteriovenous fistulae (dAVF), arterial stenosis and angioplasty as well as spinal vascular lesions. A separate chapter is devoted to the organization and necessary equipment of the angio room and the department offering neuroendovascular service. This volume will be of interest to neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, vascular surgeons, neurologists and ICU physicians as well as health care providers who are involved in the diagnosis and management of the vascular lesions of the brain and spine.

Abstract
Salivary Endoscopy is a rapidly emerging field that has revolutionized the management of non-neoplastic diseases of the salivary gland, such as salivary stones, sialadenitis, and salivary duct stenosis. With the emergence of endoscopic access to the salivary ductal system, several procedural and technical innovations have emerged that have now permitted gland preservation surgery for these pathologies. As more centers and physicians are adopting this rapidly emerging and evolving procedure, there is a need for source of literature that provides current concepts and detailed technical descriptions of the procedures that involve gland preservation surgery. This text intends to capture the current concepts among experts and in literature regarding the management of non-neoplastic salivary gland diseases. The book also focuses on steps of surgical management and technical pearls while providing detailed information on the decision-making process when emcompassing the diversity of clinical presentation, intra-operative decision-making and post op care. Gland Preservation Surgery provides high quality illustrations, clinical and operative images, and videos that serve as an online resource to salivary gland surgeons and endoscopists with varying experience and expertise.

Abstract
Our aging population, combined with an increase incidence of both diabetes and obesity, has fueled the need for better care of acute and chronic wounds associated with these diseases. Interventional Treatment of Wounds focuses on what modern surgery can do to accelerate the healing of such wounds. Utilizing case studies alongside background and in-depth analysis for each technique with color images and videos, this book is intended to guide the reader in surgical and non-surgical procedures to assist with wound closure. Edited by the medical director of the Brigham and Women's Hospital Wound Care Center, Interventional Treatment of Wounds takes the plastic surgeon's point of view on wound care and various surgical and non-surgical interventional treatments. Where the typical wound care book addresses bandaging and dressing of various surface wounds, Interventional Treatment of Wounds delves into the surgical and interventional procedures that can effectively treat both acute and chronic wounds. Written for wound care professional including physicians, podiatrists, nurses, residents and students this book features three distinct sections covering surgical methods and techniques, amputation, and interventional techniques, paying special attention to skin grafts, flaps, and substitutions, as well as arterial and venous interventions.

Abstract
This superbly illustrated book is a comprehensive and detailed guide to the contemporary arthroscopic management of intraarticular fractures. The opening section addresses a variety of basic aspects and key issues, including the difficulties posed by intraarticular fractures, principles of fixation, cartilage healing, and rehabilitation. The minimally invasive surgical techniques appropriate to individual types of fracture are then fully described and depicted, covering fractures of the shoulder and elbow, wrist, pelvis and hip, knee, and ankle. Guidance is also provided on avoidance and management of complications and rehabilitation. The closing section addresses relevant miscellaneous issues, including arthroscopic management of temporomandibular joint fractures and extended indications for endoscopy-assisted fracture fixation. This volume will greatly assist both trainee and more experienced surgeons in selecting and executing arthroscopic techniques when treating patients with these complex fractures, which entail the risk of poor long-term function and further deterioration.

Abstract
This textbook offers a comprehensive guide to interventional radiology (IR) for medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and fellows. IR is constantly evolving to meet the growing demands of patient care by applying cutting-edge technology to minimally invasive image-guided procedures. A dynamic specialty, interventional radiology has gained significant traction and interest in recent years, with combined IR/DR residencies rising to meet the increasing demand. This book addresses this growing need for a reference in IR, allowing students to gain a solid foundation to prepare them for their careers. The book is divided into two main sections, with many images and key point boxes throughout that offer high-yield pearls along with the specific How To's necessary for practice. The first section is designed to give readers an introduction to IR, including radiation safety, commonly used devices, patient care, and anatomy. The second portion divides into sections covering major body areas, diseases, conditions, and interventions. These chapters cover procedures including pathophysiology, indications for treatment, as well as alternative treatments before delving into interventional therapy. IR Playbook gives medical students, residents, and trainees a full perspective of interventional radiology.

Abstract
This text is designed to present a comprehensive, up to date and safe approach to managing emergency general surgery patients with a minimally invasive approach. This book bridges the gap between the minimally invasive surgery (MIS) expert who may not routinely be involved in the care of the acute care surgery patient and the ACS expert surgeon who may not have a routine MIS elective practice. The first section reviews the physiology of the acute care surgery patient and the physiologic impact of MIS techniques including pnemoperitoneum in critically ill patients. This review is crucial to assure that the surgeon has a clear understanding of when a MIS approach is safe and when it can be potentially dangerous to the patient. The illustrations are presented in an atlas-style format to describe the surgical procedures. The authors of the various sections are minimally invasive and acute care surgeons from prominent academic centers. The format represents a narrative review with appropriate illustrations and links to online videos.

Abstract
This book provides a clear, reproducible, step-by-step guide for each colorectal surgery operation. The format follows that of both a how to manual as well as an algorithm-based guide to allow the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategy. Each chapter includes both operative technical details as well as perioperative tips and tricks that the authors utilize in the management of these complex surgical patients. In addition, it addresses the optimal next step in dealing with more challenging situations such as pregnancy, emergent surgery, the elderly, and the obese patient. Throughout the text, each author provides an ongoing narrative of his/her individual surgical techniques along with color illustrations and diagrams to personally take the reader through the crucial steps of the procedure, as well as key points of patient care inherent to that topic. Additionally, where appropriate, links to online or downloadable videos will give the reader an up-front look into technical aspects of traditional straight laparoscopic and hand-assisted minimally invasive surgery, as well as NOTES, transanal, robotic, single incision colectomy and combined laparoscopic-endoscopic resection. Minimally Invasive Approaches to Colon and Rectal Disease: Technique and Best Practices will be of great utility to colorectal, general and oncologic surgeons who want to learn or improve their minimally invasive skills in colorectal surgery. Furthermore, this text will be of particular interest to the surgeons-in-training, and the general and colorectal surgeon who is often called upon to manage a variety of colorectal surgery conditions through a minimally invasive approach. Supplementary video files are available for this book and can be accessed at http://www.springerimages.com/videos/978-1-4939-1580-4.

Abstract
Approximately 70% of gynecologic surgical procedures can now be performed with minimally invasive techniques. In this book, world-renowned experts describe the latest advances in the field and explain why endoscopy is of key importance in so many conditions. The scope of the book is broad. Hysteroscopic instrumentation is described and the application of hysteroscopic techniques in patients with polyps, fibroids, malformations, and infertility is explained and evaluated. Individual chapters are devoted to the current minimally invasive treatment of endometriosis, endometrial polyps, and adenomyosis. The role of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology and the laparoscopic approach to hysterectomy are fully explored, and the relative merits of laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy and total laparoscopic hysterectomy are evaluated. Various other applications of laparoscopy are considered, with coverage of techniques including traditional straight stick laparoscopy, barbed suture, and robotic and single port surgery. Neurophysiology and the use of laparoscopic therapy to restore vital function are discussed, and complications of laparoscopic surgery are also addressed. This book will be of interest to gynecologic and pelvic surgeons and will also be invaluable for residents and fellows wishing to learn more about the state of the art in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
