Abstract
This book provides step-by-step instructions on how to operate with 27G instrumentation in a wide range of surgical indications, including vitreous floaters, macular holes, dropped nucleus, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, submacular hemorrhage, retinopathy of prematurity and much trauma. All surgeries are approached in cookbook fashion, with initial coverage of the "ingredients" (devices and instruments) and then meticulous description of preparation and performance with supporting photographs, drawings, and videos. In addition, the differences and benefits in comparison with 23G and 25G vitrectomy are highlighted. Small-gauge vitrectomy has radically changed the ways in which vitrectomy is performed. 27G vitrectomy is the most recent and most exciting development in small-gauge vitrectomy. The healing time is faster but the small diameter prolongs the duration of surgery. This obstacle has been overcome with powerful new vitrectomy machines and revolutionary vitreous cutters with two cutting blades making 27G vitrectomy as fast as 25G. This new equipment has expanded the indications for 27G surgeries immensely from detachment surgery to retinopathy of prematurity and the advent of new instruments may make 27G the gold standard in the future. This book, written by authors with huge experience in 27G vitrectomy, will enable surgeons to fully exploit its advantages.

Abstract
The ACL-Deficient Knee: A Problem Solving Approach, focuses on problem analysis and problem solving, as well as analyzing the possibility of prevention. In each chapter, the biomechanics, anatomy, etc. that are relevant to the topic are reviewed. There are chapters where highly specialized surgical techniques are presented (v. gr. double bundle reconstruction or meniscal transplant), as well as developing areas such as ACL tears in children, where we are finding a growing number of injuries due to the increase of sports at early ages. These chapters are written by internationally renowned specialists who are pioneers in the topics analyzed. To further enhance the educational content, there is a collection of online step by step surgical technique videos that will allow the knee specialist to perform the techniques presented in this book.

Abstract
This volume presents detailed information on surgically relevant anatomy and histology of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), biomechanics, diagnostics, and ACL reconstruction. In light of the growing body of evidence demonstrating the advantages of anatomic ACL reconstruction over traditional methods, there are also discussions of single anteromedial bundle reconstruction and anatomic ACL reconstruction with abundant descriptions of experimental and clinical studies. In addition, particular attention is given not only to techniques such as ACL augmentation, bone-patella tendon-bone reconstruction and computer-assisted navigation, but it also presents expert analysis of revision of ACL reconstruction, complications, and the future perspectives of ACL reconstruction. Edited by authoritative orthopedic surgeon from the Japanese Orthopaedic Society of Knee, Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine (JOSKAS), this book provides up-to-date information for orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists specializing in the ACL. The research evidence will broaden readers' understanding and enable them to optimize outcomes for patients. As ACL rupture is a common injury especially for high-level athletes, it will also attract sports trainers and team physicians who are interested in a recent update on this field.

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.

Abstract
Clinicians--physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, social workers, psychologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and others--share the unique responsibility of patient care and the limitless fulfillment this calling can provide.The healing professions have an ancient and venerable tradition of service, honor, and humanism that is often communicated from teacher to student in anecdotes and bits of wisdom told quickly in passing. Gathering together this type of valuable information in one place, Advice to the Healer: On the Art of Caring, Second Edition, includes biographies of historical luminaries in medicine, tales from everyday practice, inspirational quotes and artwork, and advice for new and veteran healers alike. "Today, when medical education short-changes basic clinical skills in favor of technology, when many young clinicians seem to view medicine as a trade instead of a calling, and when we see practicing physicians hawking their services on roadside billboards, it is refreshing to read a book that extols medicine's rich history and traditional values." --Robert B. Taylor, MD, Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University.

Abstract
This superbly illustrated book describes how techniques previously developed by Dr. Rollin Daniel for use in open rhinoplasty can be adapted for use in the closed approach. It is the author's opinion that this combination offers greater feedback during surgery, a shorter recovery period, and absence of scar. Full explanation is provided of preoperative preparation, including evaluation of the nasal surface aesthetics using the concept of geometric polygons as aesthetic subunits to define both the existing deformity and the aesthetic goals. The surgical techniques developed and modified to achieve the desired surface appearance are then described step by step with the aid of a wealth of color photos. It is illustrated how the novel dissection and redrape control methods reduce the healing time and enhance outcome, and an extensive series of case analyses is presented to document the benefits of the approach. The book is written in a "cookbook format" that will enable plastic surgeons quickly to learn how to utilize the closed approach to rhinoplasty to optimal aesthetic benefit.

Abstract
The literature on the late effects of cancer treatment is widely scattered in different journals since all major organ systems are affected and management is based on a variety of medical and surgical treatments. The aim of ALERT Adverse Late Effects of Cancer Treatment is to offer a coherent multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer survivors. The central paradigm is that cytotoxic multimodal therapy results in a perpetual cascade of events that affects each major organ system differently and is expressed continually over time. Essentially, radiation and chemotherapy are intense biologic modifiers that allow for cancer cure and cancer survivorship but accelerate senescence of normal tissues and increase the incidence of age-related diseases and second malignant tumors. Volume 2 of this two-volume work comprehensively documents potential late effects in all the normal tissue anatomic sites in the human body. The detection, diagnosis, management and prevention of effects are all considered in detail, and prognostic outcomes are discussed. Radiation risk factors and interactions with chemotherapy effects are clearly presented. The text is accompanied by numerous supportive illustrations and tables.

Abstract
This book is a comprehensive guide to apical periodontitis in root-filled teeth that covers not only all aspects of diagnosis and management but also epidemiology, etiology, consequences, clinical decision-making, and prognosis. There is a particular focus on the available surgical and nonsurgical methods of retreatment designed to restore healthy periapical conditions. Alternatives to retreatment are also explored, including a conservative approach involving monitoring of the diseased tooth without intervention and the option of extraction and replacement with an implant or a fixed prosthesis. The goal of root canal treatment is to save the natural tooth even when tissue breakdown has resulted in pathological conditions of the pulp and periradicular tissue. However, population studies reveal that complete healing is often absent in root-filled teeth, and apical periodontitis is frequently observed in conjunction with root fillings of poor technical quality. Under these circumstances, questions arise as to how the apical periodontitis is impacting on the patient and how the condition should be tackled. Readers will find this well-illustrated book to be of great value in directing clinical practice.

Abstract
Focusing exclusively on the older patient with poor bone quality, this unique book presents the indications, contraindications and common techniques, as well as the risks, benefits and outcomes—for utilizing arthroplasty for the treatment of fractures in this population, sensibly divided into four thematic sections. The incidence and burden of fragility fractures is presented in part one, with considerations of the influences of osteoporosis on both treatment and healing. The subsequent three sections cover upper extremity fractures, lower extremity fractures, and peri-articular nonunions, respectively. However, far from providing a simple "how-to" for the techniques discussed, the relevant current literature is presented as well as the common techniques employed in fracture management, allowing the reader to select the best approach for the specific patient presentation. In addition, chapters are included here that cover degenerative joint conditions not typically treated with total joint replacement. The treatment of fragility fractures is constantly evolving, and the aging population is consistently expanding, creating a strong need for clinicians who have experience with and exposure to the use of arthroplasty techniques as an option in their successful treatment. Written and edited by leaders in the field, Arthroplasty for the Treatment of Fractures in the Older Patient is an invaluable resource for orthopedic surgeons, residents and support staff who see and treat these increasingly common injuries.

Abstract
This book describes the current applications of arthroscopy in a very wide range of sports injuries involving, among other sites, the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and wrist. For each condition, mechanisms of injury are explained and the role of arthroscopy in diagnosis and treatment is described. Relevant information is also provided on the epidemiology and mechanisms of injury in specific sports and on indications for treatment and rehabilitation. The book fully reflects the recent advances that have taken place in arthroscopy, permitting more accurate assessment and more successful management of post-traumatic pathologies. Furthermore, it acknowledges that as a result of the increasing use of new technologies and biomaterials, there is now particular interest in techniques that promote biological healing of articular lesions and permit complete functional recovery. The authors are leading specialists in the field who have aimed to provide practitioners with the clear guidance that they require on the evaluation and treatment of injuries incurred during sporting activity.
