Abstract
Presenting step-by-step procedures written by experts in the field, this comprehensive clinical guide discusses the diagnosis (electrodiagnostic and ultrasound) and management of compressive neuropathies of the upper extremity. Compressive (or compression) neuropathy, also known as entrapment neuropathy or trapped nerve, is a common condition of the upper extremity in which the nerves of the arm – median, ulnar and radial being the most common – are compressed, causing pain and discomfort as well as possible pathological and anatomical changes. Carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome are the most well-known and treated, with nerve release and decompression surgeries being the usual treatment, though the variety of neuropathies and management strategies goes beyond these conditions. Chapters included describe in detail the latest, cutting-edge management strategies for the various manifestations of compressive neuropathy of the hand and wrist – carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, pronator teres syndrome, Wartenberg’s syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and suprascapular neuropathy – as well as revision carpal and cubital tunnel surgical treatment options. Plentiful intraoperative photos and detailed illustrations, along with clinical case material and pearls and pitfalls, make this the ideal resource for orthopedic, hand and plastic surgeons aiming for the most optimal outcomes.

Abstract
This guidebook is derived from the author's notes taken during dermatology residency. The essential facts have been compressed, simplified, and organized so that the reader is reminded of the key dermatologic diagnoses and treatment approaches and provided with everything that is most important to know in caring for patients. Dermatology Simplified: Outlines and Mnemonics organizes dermatologic conditions into outlines by clinical differential diagnosis and by pathophysiology. This style of organization allows the reader to focus on a condition while maintaining a broad understanding of its place in the big picture. Diseases are also grouped thematically to reinforce understanding in complementary ways, and high-yield notes summarize medications, cosmetics, surgery, and basic science. This algorithmic, standardized approach will increase the amount of information the reader can retain more effectively than a random strategy to learning, and will be of great use as a resource for medical students and dermatology residents diagnosing patients in clinic, senior dermatology residents studying for board exams, internal medicine and pediatrics residents learning dermatology, teachers creating educational presentations for students or residents, and practicing dermatologists seeking quick reference.

Abstract
This collection, entitled «Digital Health for Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory Medicine» contains the proceedings of the first International conference on digital health technologies (ICDHT 2018). Ten recent contributions in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and data analysis, all applied to digital health. This collection enables researchers to learn about recent advances in the above mentioned fields. It brings a technological viewpoint of P4 medicine. Readers will discover how advanced Information Technology (IT) tools can be used for healthcare. For instance, the use of connected objects to monitor physiological parameters is discussed. Moreover, even if compressed sensing is nowadays a common acquisition technique, its use for IoT is presented in this collection through one of the pioneer works in the field. In addition, the use of AI for epileptic seizure detection is also discussed as being one of the major concerns of predictive medicine both in industrialized and low-income countries. This work is edited by Prof. Lotfi Chaari, professor at the University of Sfax, and previously at the University of Toulouse. This work comes after more than ten years of expertise in the biomedical signal and image processing field.

Abstract
This superbly illustrated book covers all aspects of liposuction: anatomy, pathology, biochemistry, preoperative care, equipment, the full range of procedures, complications, postoperative care, outcomes, lipedema, and medical legal aspects. Compared with the successful first edition, the text has been extensively updated and many additional chapters included, with particular attention to recently introduced techniques. While new technology helps to improve results, experience, care, and skill on the part of the cosmetic surgeon are essential if optimal results satisfactory to the patient are to be achieved. The contributors to this book have expended much time and effort to present the cosmetic and plastic surgeon with as much information as possible on the techniques and uses of liposuction for the purposes of cosmetic and non-cosmetic surgery. Liposuction: Principles and Practice will be of value for residents and fellows and for practicing and highly experienced surgeons in plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, general surgery, and other subspecialties.

Abstract
This book focuses on the practical issues of the implementation of state-of-the-art acquisition methodologies and protocols for both basic science and clinical practice. It is a practical guidebook for both beginners and advanced users for easy and practical implementation of acquisition protocols. It is relevant for a wide audience that ranges from students, residents, fellows, basic scientists, physicists, engineers, and medical practitioners. The novelty of this book relates to its intended practical use and focus on state-of-the-art cardiac MRI techniques that span both the clinical and basic science fields. In comparison and contrast to other pre-existing books, this book will distinguish from others for its practical usefulness and conciseness. Correspondingly, the book will be used as a handbook (quick reference) for new starters or people who would like to establish state-of-the-art cardiac MRI techniques in their institutions. Given the historical evolution of technique development in MRI, the clinical and basic science topics will be described separately. However, in instances where basic science development complemented (or is envisaged to complement) clinical development (e.g., Diffusion MRI and tractography), every effort will be made to allow a comprehensive review and associations of the clinical/basic science subfields.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Abstract
Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a condition estimated to affect as many as 80 of every 1000 patients in the US alone. While estimates vary widely based in part on lack of consensus as to the definition of the syndrome, as many as 3000 first rib resections are performed annually in the US. TOS comprises at least three separate conditions. The most common, neurogenic TOS, refers to the condition where the brachial plexus is compressed at the scalene triangle or retropectoral space, and is manifest as local and extremity pain and neurologic symptoms. Venous TOS refers to the situation where the subclavian vein is compressed by the structures making up the costoclavicular junction, and presents as acute or chronic venous thrombosis or injury or occasionally intermittent positional obstruction. Finally, arterial TOS refers to the situation where arterial injury occurs as the result of abnormal bony or ligamentous structures at the outlet, and presents as occlusion of or embolization from an abnormal artery in this area. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome brings together many experts who treat this disease and are leaders in their fields. While it can certainly be read in its entirety (and should, by all who concentrate on this condition), it is designed to be a clinical reference, residing on a shelf in a busy surgical, vascular or neurologic clinic where individual chapters can be quickly referenced. As such, the chapters are thorough, but concise and useful to answer when a specific question arises in the course of daily practice.
