Abstract
This book presents to all those who are interested in the history of Anaesthesiology historical details and information on the development of anaesthesiology in Germany and the remarkable growth of our Society. At the founding session of the German Society of Anaesthesia in Munich on 10 April 1953 42 persons had signed the founding documents. Today about 12,000 anaesthetists are members of the German Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, making the DGAI the biggest national society within ESA. Well known are the pioneering contributions of German scientists and surgeons to the development of general, regional and local anaesthesia during the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. But less known outside Germany are the reasons for the delayed evolution of anaesthesiology as a specialty of its own in German medicine, far later than in the UK, Scandinavia or the USA. In this book you will find answers to this question and detailed information on the successful evolution of anaesthesiology especially at the Faculties of Medicine at German universities.

Abstract
This book examines in detail the topic of sepsis, with a focus on intra-abdominal sepsis. Particular attention is devoted to source control in the management of the infection, antimicrobial therapy and sepsis support, which represent the cornerstones of treating patients with abdominal sepsis. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach is highlighted not only by the instructive and informative sections on the acute manifestations of appendicitis, cholecystitis, and cholangitis, perforations and diverticulitis, Clostridium difficile infection and the role of candida in abdominal sepsis, but also by an extensive discussion of issues including antimicrobial resistance, damage control surgery, principles of antimicrobial therapy, hemodynamic support, adjunctive therapies, and thromboprophylaxis. Abdominal sepsis is the host's systemic inflammatory response to intra-abdominal infections. It is associated with significant morbidity and mortality rates, and represents the second most common cause of sepsis-related mortality at intensive care units. Gathering contributions by authoritative experts from all around the world, this book will allow acute care surgeons, abdominal surgeons, intensive care clinicians, and students to broaden their understanding of intra-abdominal sepsis in daily clinical practice.

Abstract
This volume deals with philosophically grounded theories of animal generation as found in two different traditions: one, deriving primarily from Aristotelian natural philosophy and specifically from his Generation of Animals; and another, deriving from two related medical traditions, the Hippocratic and the Galenic. The book contains a classification and critique of works that touch on the history of embryology and animal generation written before 1980. It also contains translations of key sections of the works on which it is focused. It looks at two different scholarly communities: the physicians (medici) and philosophers (philosophi), that share a set of textual resources and philosophical lineages, as well as a shared problem (explaining animal generation), but that nevertheless have different concerns and commitments. The book demonstrates how those working in these two traditions not only shared a common philosophical background in the arts curricula of the universities, but were in constant intercourse with each other. This book presents a test case of how scholarly communities differentiate themselves from each other through methods of argument, empirical investigation, and textual interpretations. It is all the more interesting because the two communities under investigation have so much in common and yet, in the end, are distinct in a number of important ways.

Abstract
This is the second edition of a well-received book that reflects the state of the art in diagnosis and treatment of acute abdominal disorders in the pregnant patient. It addresses a wide range of conditions, whether associated with or incidental to pregnancy, ranging from very rare to more common ones, such as acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis. It offers an update on recommendations, guidelines and scenarios to provide fundamental support for all clinicians who might encounter such cases. The book highlights the importance of a rapid diagnosis to avoid serious consequences for both the mother and the fetus. Furthermore, it sheds light on the different imaging modalities of rare pathologies that can occur during pregnancy, helping clinicians and radiologists to better define underlying cases. This new edition has been almost completely rewritten, and includes an additional section focusing on urologic emergencies, preterm labor and intra-abdominal pressure, as well as new figures and tables. It is equally valuable for general and abdominal surgeons, gynecologists and obstetricians, as well as emergency physicians, who may be the first specialists to have clinical contact with this group of patients. From the reviews of the first edition: "This book contains most of the information needed to address the problem of acute abdomen in pregnancy and brings state of the art principles and practice of emergency, abdominal surgery, obstetrics, gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. The book should prompt clinicians, primarily surgeons and obstetricians to make faster and more precise diagnosis, earlier surgical interventions with the optimal outcome for the mother and child, by a multidisciplinary approach." (Translation into English; Original review: Prof. Dr. Tomislav Luetiç, Lijec Vjesn, Vol. 137 (5-6), May-June, 2015) "This book provides a detailed description of the various clinical scenarios in which we encounter acute abdominal conditions in pregnant patients. ÇŒ This is an excellent resource for practicing acute care surgeons and obstetricians/gynecologists who are most likely to encounter these patients. It also is a very useful resource for general practitioners, since they frequently are the first healthcare professionals who encounter pregnant patients with these conditions." (Prashant Khullar, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2015).

Abstract
This is a state-of-the-art book for those looking to advance their colonoscopic techniques beyond simple polypectomy. Chapters introduce methods of removing polyps that were not previously amenable to simple colonoscopic snare polypectomy. These include endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), and combined endoscopic and laparoscopic polypectomy (CELS). Advanced techniques such as intestinal stenting and closure of perforations are extensively covered. There is a detailed description of necessary tools and skills to accomplish these difficult tasks. As many readers will never have seen these complex procedures before, photographs and video clips accompany this text. The authors provide tips, tricks, and describe pitfalls that will help the reader incorporate these new techniques into their practice. Advanced Colonoscopy: Polypectomy and Beyond will be of great value to any surgeon or gastroenterologist currently performing colonoscopy and interested in advanced techniques.

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive overview of non-surgical treatments for complicated and refractory biliary and pancreatic lesions. In particular, it offers non-surgical treatment options for benign biliary strictures. For those suffering from intractable total biliary obstruction following biliary operation, magnetic compression anastomosis represents a good therapeutic option, and this technique is fully explained. Moreover, the book describes diverse treatment modalities for hilar stricture, which is one of the most challenging areas of ERCP. Several chapters cover a variety of important aspects of this area. The book also aims to identify and solve the unmet needs for the diagnosis and treatment of biliary and pancreatic diseases. The precise explanations of treatment concepts and strategies will both increase readers’ knowledge and provide assistance in daily clinical practice.

Abstract
Advances in Endoscopy in Inflammatory Bowel Disease summarizes the recent progress made in endoscopy, an essential tool for the diagnosis and management of IBD. It goes on to provide an introduction of state-of-the-art endoscopic techniques, as well as an atlas of high-quality endoscopic images of IBD and related diseases. Among others, endoscopy is one of the clinical fields in which Asian countries are leading the way in the management of gastrointestinal disorders. As the number of patients with IBD is dramatically increasing in Asia, quality of patient care has been significantly improved. With diagnosis of intestinal Behcet, simple ulcers, and intestinal tuberculosis, which are unique to the Asian countries, this book offers the ideal standard textbook for IBD endoscopy in all Asian counties, while the superior quality of images also makes it a valuable resource for practitioners around the globe. This book will significantly help all physicians, endoscopists and researchers working on GI endoscopy, especially those focusing on IBD, to improve their knowledge of IBD endoscopy.

Abstract
This ambitious book provides a comprehensive history of the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Programme on AIDS (GPA), using it as a unique lens to trace the global response to the AIDS pandemic. The authors describe how WHO came initially to assume leadership of the global response, relate the strategies and approaches WHO employed over the years, and expound on the factors that led to the Programme's demise and subsequent formation of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). The authors examine the global impact of this momentous transition, portray the current status of the global response to AIDS, and explore the precarious situation that WHO finds itself in today as a lead United Nations agency in global health. Several aspects of the global response—the strategies adopted, the roads taken and not taken, and the lessons learned—can provide helpful guidance to the global health community as it continues tackling the AIDS pandemic and confronts future global pandemics. Included in the coverage: The response before the global response Building and coordinating a multi-sectoral response Containing the global spread of HIV Addressing stigma, discrimination, and human rights Rethinking global AIDS governance UNAIDS: finding its place in congested waters The AIDS Pandemic will find an engaged audience among policymakers, students, faculty, journalists, researchers, and other health professionals working and interested in global health, public health, the World Health Organization, HIV/AIDS, global pandemics, the history of medicine, and global health policy. It will also interest those involved in international relations, international development, global affairs and governance, the United Nations, and NGOs.

Abstract
This book describes the latest advances concerning the molecular mechanisms of and therapeutic strategies for alcohol- and non-alcohol-related digestive diseases. Alcohol abuse causes not only liver injury but can harm various organs, resulting in esophageal and colorectal cancers, GERD, pancreatitis, etc. Similar to alcoholic abuse, metabolic syndrome based on obesity and diabetes is also strongly associated with the development of various digestive diseases. Although these diseases may be differentiated by the presence or absence of alcohol intake, the pathologic findings and pathogenesis reveal a number of similarities. This volume covers clinical and basic approaches for esophageal, gastric, hepatic, colorectal and pancreatic diseases associated with alcohol abuse and metabolic syndrome; further, it discusses the roles of microbiota, oxidative stress, and apoptosis, the critical factors causing alcoholic and metabolic digestive diseases. Also, it showcases new pathological and therapeutic perspectives in gastric and pancreatic cancers. Alcoholic/Non-Alcoholic Digestive Diseases will provide invaluable information for doctors specializing in gastroenterology and hepatology and researchers seeking new research on digestive diseases based on alcohol consumption and obesity.
