Abstract
This title is a comprehensive resource of aortic regurgitation suitable for both the novice and experienced practitioner. Detailed attention is given to the recently growing field of aortic valve-sparing surgery and aortic valve repair. Guidelines are also provided for general practitioners on how to treat patients after various aortic procedures. Also included are many operative photos, original medical illustrations and schematics. Aortic Regurgitation synthesizes current knowledge of aortic valve repair into an easy-to-follow, illustration-rich text. It is therefore an indispensable guide suitable for use by cardiologists and trainees in cardiology, cardiac surgeons, echocardiographers, general practitioners and radiologists. .

Abstract
Covering both primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA), each technique-oriented chapter in this book opens with a clinical case and an overview of the challenges and multiple options for management, and each section within the chapter will describe the physical exam, surgical approach, clinical outcome and recent supporting literature. Chapters will utilize bullet points for quick reference and plentiful intra-operative photos to illustrate the various techniques described. Part one covers primary TKA, with cases demonstrating management strategies for the varus and valgus knee, flexion contracture, patellofemoral arthritis, and extra-articular deformity, among others, while part two covers revision TKA, with cases demonstrating acute infection, flexion and global instability, severe tibial and femoral bone loss, and periprosthetic fracture, among others. Written and edited by experts in the field, Complex Cases In Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Collection of Current Techniques will be a useful reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows as well as sports medicine specialists and anyone involved in surgical care of the knee.

Abstract
This book deals with neuroimaging of the brain, head, neck, and spine. During the last few years, there have been considerable advances in this subject, driven by clinical as well as technological developments. The authors, internationally renowned experts in their field, have contributed chapters that are diseaseoriented and cover all relevant imaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and positron emission tomography. As a result, this book offers a comprehensive review of the state-of-the art in neuroimaging. It is particularly relevant for general radiologists, radiology residents, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other clinicians wishing to update their knowledge in this discipline.

Abstract
This book covers a broad spectrum of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practices as part of an integrative pediatric oncology employed worldwide, with a special focus on those methods commonly used in the so-called Western countries. It is a scientifically based, practice-oriented handbook that will meet the needs of pediatric oncologists working in medical practices and hospitals. An introductory section offers a comparative overview of contemporary CAM use in pediatric oncology in different countries and also considers such topics as salutogenic approaches, physician attitudes towards CAM, and epistemological issues around integrative medicine.  Commonly used CAM methods are then discussed in a series of individual chapters that provide a theoretical description of the method in question, followed by more practically oriented information, including scientific data if applicable. Special attention is devoted to the question of how to integrate each method into conventional pediatric oncology. The next part of the book discusses aspects of CAM requiring further cultivation, such as institutional research, education and training, and information delivery to parents and children. The book closes with a road map on establishing integrative pediatric oncology worldwide that includes details of existing integrative initiatives in pediatric oncology units.
Contents
1. Introduction -- 2. CAM Use in Pediatric Oncology: What Do We Know in the Year 2012? -- 3.

Abstract
Now revised and expanded into a major reference work, Scuderi and Tria bring together leaders in the field for this update of their classic 2010 text on minimally invasive surgery in orthopedics. Organized anatomically, each section has been reviewed and revised with the most current information and techniques, both common and complex. An entirely new section on analgesics and anesthesia is included, and the former section on the upper extremities is split into three distinct sections on the shoulder, elbow, and hand, respectively, for a more in-depth presentation of these areas. Subsequent sections on the hip, knee, foot and ankle, and spine are similarly reinforced with the state-of-the-art for each region. The final section is reworked to include not only computer navigation strategies but other innovative technologies in MIS as well. Now, as then, this is the go-to reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows seeking a practical understanding of minimally invasive techniques in orthopedics.
