Of all the important factors that must be considered when assessing and treating an athlete, the impact of patient sex is perhaps the most critical, yet historically has often been neglected. The "same injury" in a male patient may present differently, sometimes in subtle ways, than in a female patient and may require a different treatment approach. The Female Athlete, edited by Dr. Rachel Frank, provides concise, expert coverage of the ways in which common sports medicine injuries present in female patients versus male patients, describing recent literature analyzing sex differences in injury patterns and available treatment options.

Abstract
This book is divided into 3 parts, each containing chapters that cover commonly encountered clinical scenarios of reoperative surgery. These parts include revisional bariatric surgery, reoperation for complications of bariatric surgery, and revisional anti-reflux and gastric procedures. The information covered discusses existing literature and best-practices in patient care, with a focus on operative technique, pitfalls, and post-operative complications. The aim of this book is to provide the reader with information on how to successfully manage a patient requiring reoperation. Chapters also highlight the difference in patient outcomes when the procedures are completed in a minimally invasive approach rather than an open approach. Revisional Foregut Surgery serves as a valuable resource for medical students, surgical residents, fellows, and attending surgeons seeking advice and guidance on reoperative upper gastrointestinal surgery and their related complications.

Abstract
This practical book focuses on the most recent advances in fertility preservation in oncological and non-oncological patients. It presents the steps that need to be followed prior to treatment for successful fertility preservation, and describes in detail the medical conditions requiring fertility preservation, including precise information on the risk of fertility loss, prognosis, risk of ovarian metastasis and other possible risks. The book also provides information on how to perform the preservation techniques (success rates, risks, etc.) and on what to do after the treatment (in cases of bleeding during chemotherapy, menopause, wish to conceive, etc.). Written by experts in the field, including members of the globally known network FertiPROTEKT and leading oncologists and specialists, this practical and easy-to-use book is a valuable resource for all clinicians involved in fertility preservation for patients with specific diseases.

Abstract
This book offers a truly comprehensive overview of the understanding and treatment of massive and irreparable rotator cuff tears, a painful and disabling shoulder condition that continues to pose major challenges. A thorough examination of basic science issues and evidence lays the foundation for discussion of key controversies in the field and exposition of a practical approach to treatment in which the role of both conservative and surgical management is explained. Special insights are provided into the new biological and nonoperative approaches that are becoming increasingly popular among practitioners. All potential surgical techniques are described, from partial repair and tendon transfer, to the use of dedicated implants. In addition, the value of anesthesia and regional blocks, both during surgery and in the postoperative phase, is discussed. The concluding section addresses particularly complex scenarios and offers guidance on the management of treatment complications and failures. Written by leading international shoulder experts, the book will be of value for shoulder surgeons, rehabilitators, and other health care practitioners.

Abstract
This comprehensive volume examines the role of vitamin E as an essential micronutrient in human health and its extensive clinical benefits. Sections cover a wide breadth of topics, including vitamin E intake and recommended daily allowance, understanding the biological activities of Vitamin E and observed physiological effects, benefits of vitamin E on upper respiratory infections, cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, and intake safety. The text serves to emphasize the importance of vitamin E in relation to disease prevention as well as to raise awareness of the number of health conditions where an increased intake of vitamin E can be of potential significance. It explores vitamin E in an up-to-date, science based, applicable real-life perspective and offers pragmatic solutions for its safe and personalized use beyond the various methodological and statistical controversies. Intended for the medical and nutritional community, Vitamin E in Human Health will not only be an expansive resource for healthcare professionals, but also makes efforts to stimulate increased support for vitamin E research and further exploration of the safe and efficacious use for this essential micronutrient.
