Abstract
This book covers all aspects of successfully treating patients using chest drains, beginning with anatomy and ending with physiotherapy and pain management. The aim of the book is to provide medical professionals with a step-by-step guide to using a chest drain, with specific chapters on indications, kinds of chest drains, catheters, drainage systems, how to insert a chest tube, complications during placement and handling of a chest drain, removing a chest drain, management of the pleural space and post-procedural care. Unlike general thoracic surgery textbooks, this book gives a complete overview of chest drains in clinical practice to ensure the best possible care of patients.
Contents
1. Anatomy of the Chest Wall and the Pleura -- 2. Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Pleura -- 3. Indications for Draining the Chest -- 4. Different Kinds of Drains (-Catheters) -- 5. Different Drainage Systems and Philosophies -- 6. Inserting a Chest Drain: How to Do -- 7. Complications of Chest Drain Insertion and Management -- 8. Care of Patients Having a Chest Drain -- 9. Management of the Pleural Space: Handling of Chest Tubes and Drainage Systems -- 10. Pain Management in Patients with a Chest Drain -- 11. Physiotherapy in Patients with Chest Drains -- 12.

Abstract
"For decades, lymphatic vessels were considered to be of "lesser significance" than blood vessels, and the fundamental importance of lymphatic vessels for physiological tissue homeostasis and their involvement in many pathological processes have only recently been fully appreciated. It is clear by now that all higher vertebrates possess a lymphatic vessel system, and that malfunctioning of the lymphatic vasculature has severe pathophysiological consequences. Still, many central aspects of the developmental origin, growth control and regulation of lymphatic vessels are not sufficiently understood. This volume of 'Advances in anatomy, embryology, and cell biology' focuses on the lymphatic vascular system from a developmental point of view, presenting exciting recent advances in elucidating the development and molecular control of lymphatic vessels. A collection of focused reviews, written by respected experts, describes ostensively how advanced genetic models and state-of-the-art imaging are being used to decipher the action of transcriptional programs, growth factors and matrix components in the regulation of lymphatic endothelial cell behavior. A synopsis is provided for each chapter, concisely highlighting the main points"--Publisher.
Contents
Transcriptional control of lymphatic endothelial cell type specification -- Mechanosensing in developing lymphatic vessels -- Plasticity of airway lymphatics in development and disease -- Regulation of lymphatic vasculature by extracellular matrix -- Interplay of mechanotransduction, FOXC2, connexins and calcineurin signaling in lymphatic valve formation -- Development of secondary lymphoid organs in relation to lymphatic vasculature -- Platelets in lymph vessel development and integrity -- Interactions of immune cells and lymphatic vessels -- Lymphatic vessels in the development of tissue and organ rejection -- The role of neuropilin-1/semaphorin 3A signaling in lymphatic vessel development and maturation -- A fisheye view on lymphangiogenesis -- Visualization of lymphatic vessel development, growth and function -- Clinical disorders of primary malfunctioning of the lymphatic system.
