Abstract
This book accentuates the anatomies involved in spine surgery techniques, from the base of the skull down to the sacrum and the sacroiliac joint. It includes extensive illustrations that cover all major spine surgeries. It also discusses the instrumentations used with different operative approaches. The book features high-resolution pictures of operative dissection, cadaveric specimens, and intraoperative imaging that clearly illustrate the relevant anatomy of various spine surgery procedures, allowing surgeons to "reconstruct" a three-dimensional anatomical view when performing the surgery. As such, it is a valuable reference resource for spine surgeons. Editors Jian-Gang Shi and Wen Yuan are professors at the department of orthopaedics, Changzheng Hospital, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China. Editor Jing-Chuan Sun is a surgeon at the same department.

Abstract
This book introduces the exciting field of orthobiology, which will usher in a new array of therapeutic approaches that stimulate the body's natural resources to regenerate musculoskeletal tissues damaged by trauma or disease. The book addresses a range of key topics and discusses emerging approaches that promise to offer effective alternatives to traditional treatments for injuries to bone, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It explains in detail how a variety of innovative products, including biomaterials, growth factors, and autogenous cells, together provide the basis for the regeneration of these musculoskeletal structures and how recent scientific progress has created unique opportunities to address pathological situations that until recently have been treated with unsatisfactory results. The authors are experts from across the world who come together to provide a truly global overview. The book is published in collaboration with ISAKOS. It will be invaluable for all with an interest in this area of medicine, which has already attained huge popularity in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and has also attracted the attention of the lay public.

Abstract
This book presents the results of a unique macroscopic and radiological analysis, by X-ray and CT scan, of the bone pathologies of about 1800 subjects who lived at the time of the Roman Empire (first and second centuries A.D.) and whose remains were recovered during the excavation of a suburban necropolis of Rome. The survey, which represents a collaboration between the Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology and the Special Superintendent for the Archaeological Heritage of Rome, has yielded incredible images of different orthopaedic diseases in a period when no surgical treatment was available: there are cases of infection (osteomyelitis), metabolic disease (gout), hematologic disease (multiple myeloma), traumatic lesions and their complications, and degenerative pathology (osteoarthritis, particularly secondary and overload). A multidisciplinary team including orthopaedists, paleopathologists, radiologists, and medical historians has evaluated the major groups of bone disease in the population finding out incredible cases and picture of ortho-traumatologic pathologies in a pre-surgical era. The homogeneity of the sample and the number of subjects make this a study of fundamental importance.

Abstract
This book presents various skills to help surgeons improve their day-to-day performance and development including professionalism, communication, situation awareness, decision making, leadership, and technical dexterity. It also offers advice on how to organise a surgical theatre list, improve theatre efficiency, prepare for surgical interviews and participate in surgical research and audit. Furthermore, it emphasises the need to strive for safety in surgery and to learn from things going wrong. The complex world of emotions that surgeons may encounter is also discussed. The guidance presented here may be of value to any aspiring surgeon, whatever their surgical specialty, and wherever they choose to practise. The skills highlighted in this book reflect the author's initial experiences as a surgical trainee, the teachings of his senior trainers, as well as his subsequent involvement in supervising multiple junior surgeons as a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics. Much of the material presented is supported by an extensive literature review. This book complements the previously published book "Career Skills for Doctors" by the same author.

Abstract
SPECT/CT cameras have considerably improved diagnostic accuracy in recent years. Such cameras allow direct correlation of anatomic and functional information, resulting in better localization and definition of scintigraphic findings. In addition to this anatomic referencing, CT coregistration provides superior quantification of radiotracer uptake based on the attenuation correction capabilities of CT. Useful applications of SPECT/CT have been identified not only in oncology but also in other specialties such as orthopedics and cardiology. This book covers the full spectrum of clinical applications of SPECT/CT in diagnosis and therapy planning of benign and malignant diseases. Opening chapters discuss the technology and physics of SPECT/CT and its use for dosimetry. The role of SPECT/CT in the imaging of a range of pathologic conditions is then addressed in detail. Applications covered include, among others, imaging of the thyroid, bone, and lungs, imaging of neuroendocrine tumors, cardiac scintigraphy, and sentinel node scintigraphy. Individual chapters are also devoted to therapy planning in selective internal radiation therapy of liver tumors and bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT. Readers will find this book to be an essential and up-to-date source of information on this invaluable hybrid imaging technique.
Contents
Technology and Physics of SPECT/CT -- Use of SPECT/CT for dosimetry -- SPECT/CT for parathyroid and thyroid imaging -- SPECT/CT for thyroid cancer imaging -- 123Iod-MIBG SPECT/CT for tumor imaging -- SPECT/CT for neuroendocrine tumors -- Bone SPECT/CT in oncology -- Bone SPECT/CT in orthopaedics -- SPECT/CT for cardiac scintigraphy -- SPECT/CT in sentinel node scintigraphy -- Lung SPECT/CT -- Therapy planning in selective internal radiation therapy of liver tumors with SPECT/CT -- Bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT -- Miscellaneous (Brain SPECT/CT, inflammation, radiation planning, GI-Tract).

Abstract
This book covers common fracture and dislocation classifications for nearly every part of the human body. For each part, it introduces readers to the historical evolution of fracture classifications, as well as the commonly used classifications, with likelihood from high to low. To describe these classifications, the book combines extensive descriptions, tree and schematic diagrams, elegant drawings and detailed radiological images. This structure will help readers recognize the differences between various classifications, and make proper decisions on the basis of their specific research purposes. As such, the book offers a valuable reference guide for orthopedists, radiologists and medical students alike. Editor Yingze Zhang is a surgeon and director of the orthopedic department, The Third hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang, China. He is also the president of the hospital.

Abstract
This book aims to provide condensed and crystallised knowledge, providing the rationale for investigations and interventions. Emergency medicine is a specialty where time and knowledge are critical factors in deciding appropriate management which could otherwise result in loss of life or limb. The challenge often is to have lucid management plans, whilst standing at the bedside of the patient. In order to address this challenge, a manuscript is needed which aims to enhance the clinical skills of the emergency physician. The objective of this book is to compile a road map for practitioners of emergency medicine, which would guide them through algorithm-based pathways. This format is distinctive by nature for its concise presentation, which facilitates easy reading and early application. Written by global experts, this book aims to be a truly international representation of emergency physicians who have come together to deliver contemporary concepts in emergency patient care.
