Abstract
The perfect execution of a minimally invasive operative technique is only part of the equation for ensuring a favorable surgical outcome. It is also essential to have a complete understanding of the entire spectrum of perioperative care, including preoperative evaluation, technique selection, and postoperative management. Further, it is important to understand the physiologic impact of the C02 pneumoperitoneum. The SAGES Manual of Perioperative Care in Minimally Invasive Surgery provides strategies for successful patient management before, during and after laparoscopic surgery. This easy-to-read manual includes comprehensive and authoritative coverage of perioperative concepts and strategies that not only optimize outcomes but also ensures quality patient care beyond the operating room: guidelines for preoperative evaluation of healthy and complex patients strategies for successful outcomes, including OR setup, patient positioning, anesthetic considerations, exposure technique, port closure method, and hernia prevention multiple port arrangements for most operations and port placement schemes that take into account the B.M.I. of the patient managing trocar placement-related bleeding, prophylaxis against DVT, prevention of intraoperative hypothermia and subcutaneous emphysema when to convert to an open procedure physiologic, immunologic, and oncologic implications of CO2 pneumoperitoneum, prevention of port-site tumors, minimizing the risk of gas embolism postoperative considerations including fluid replacement, ambulation and early postoperative performance criteria The SAGES Manual of Perioperative Care in Minimally Invasive Surgery is written by recognized experts and reflects the Society's commitment to surgical education.

Abstract
Aesthetic Medicine: Art and Techniques provides step-by-step instructions in the procedures and techniques commonly employed in aesthetic medicine. The book is divided into four parts, the first two of which offer an introduction to aesthetic medicine and discuss preoperative assessment and treatment. Detailed guidance is then given on a wide range of cutaneous procedures, including the use of botulinum toxins, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion, cryotherapy, chemical peel skin resurfacing, laser treatments, mesotherapy, sclerotherapy, capacitive radiofrequency treatment, and the use of dermarollers. The final part of the book is devoted to techniques employed in shaping the face and body, such as breast and facial augmentation, penile enhancement, liposuction, and management of hair loss or excess hair. All procedures are depicted with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations and color photographs. This book will serve as an excellent guide for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Abstract
Chest Imaging offers a concise introduction to radiographic chest procedures through a methodical, pattern-driven approach. Filled with high-resolution images, this practical guide provides a thorough explanation of key terms, concepts, and procedures useful for medical students, radiology residents, and others to learn the basics of the plain film chest x-ray (CXR). The book includes a companion online resource at www.robochest.com designed for use in combination to provide students with numerous examples of clinically significant abnormalities commonly detected on CXRs. Chapters present a structured lexicon to teach students to reproducibly describe radiographic abnormalities of the chest detected on CXRs. Topics present specific combinations of distinct radiographic findings in relation to classes and groupings of pathological etiologies of those findings. Recognizing individual findings and identifying their combination or lack of combination with other findings allows students to learn effective differential diagnoses. Chest Imaging includes hundreds of radiographs, CTs, graphics, mnemonics, differentials, and analogous models to help teach otherwise complex processes and radiographic principles.

Abstract
99mTc-sestamibi is a single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) radiotracer that was introduced into clinical routine for myocardial perfusion imaging more than two decades ago. Although today the main application of 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT remains the imaging of myocardial perfusion, it is also an accepted and well-proven imaging technique for a variety of oncologic and non-oncologic applications, including brain, breast, and thyroid cancer and thyroid and parathyroid adenoma. Its efficacy in a range of indications ensures that 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT will remain widely used despite the rapid diffusion of 18F-FDG PET. 99mTc-Sestamibi: Clinical Applications provides a detailed and informative overview of almost all the oncologic and non-oncologic applications of 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT, including several relatively rare indications. Different disease-related protocols for 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT are presented, and for each disease a comprehensive summary of the relevant pathology and epidemiology is provided. Throughout, there is a strong emphasis on the practical aspects of use of this popular tracer, including instructions for the preparation of several commercially available tracer kits. Clinical practitioners will find this book to be an invaluable guide to the application and benefits of 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT in both the inpatient and the outpatient setting.

Abstract
Cognitive Screening Instruments: A Practical Approach provides a practical and structured overview of some of the most commonly used and easily available cognitive screening instruments applicable in the outpatient clinic and bedside setting. Dementia and cognitive disorders are now recognised as an increasing public health problem, both in terms of patient numbers and cost, as populations age throughout the world. Despite this, many patients with dementia never receive a formal diagnosis, with implications for their appropriate care and management. Diagnostic tests which identify cases of dementia therefore have an important role. Expert authors from around the world equip the reader of Cognitive Screening Instruments: A Practical Approach with clear instructions on the usage of each screening instrument, its strengths and weaknesses, the time required for administration, and rules on scoring, such as how to correct for variations in the patient's age or education, and suggested cut-off scores. Cognitive Screening Instruments: A Practical Approach is a handy, illustrated guide and a valuable diagnostic aid for practitioners working closely with patients with dementia and mild cognitive impairment. This volume will be of use both to clinicians and to professionals in disciplines allied to medicine who are called upon to assess patients with possible cognitive disorders, including neurologists, old age psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, primary care physicians, dementia support workers, and members of memory assessment teams.
