Abstract
This book offers a guide to better understanding models of workplace mental health, as well as best practices for mental health professionals, employee assistance groups, employers and employees alike. The cost of depression at the workplace is staggering, both in terms of absenteeism and productivity loss while at work, and in terms of human and family suffering. Depression is highly prevalent and affects employees’ concentration, decision-making skills and memory, contributing to accidents and quality issues. Analyses indicate that the returns on investment for workplace mental health programs are significant, with employers reporting lower productivity-related financial losses and less need staff turnover due to mental health conditions. The book also addresses substance use and misuse, and ways to address such problems.

Abstract
This unique book fills the void in the existing literature related to the diagnosis and evaluation of pediatric ACL injuries and presents both current and emerging surgical techniques for pediatric ACL reconstruction. Once considered rare, these injuries are on the rise as children are increasingly active and engaged in high-impact sports. Historically, these injuries have been treated with benign neglect, but there is increasing evidence that non-operative treatment approaches can lead to recurrent instability, further injury to the meniscus or cartilage, and eventually joint degeneration. Opening with discussion of epidemiology, developmental anatomy, and assessment and radiography, this one-stop resource then presents conservative and surgical management strategies and algorithms, including ACL reconstruction without bone tunnels, use of epiphyseal tunnels, trans-physeal tunnels, or hybrid techniques. Special attention is given to the young female athlete, complications, prevention strategies, rehabilitation and return to play considerations. Bringing together the latest clinical evidence with the preferred techniques of experts in the field, The Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament is a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the inherent problems in treating ACL injuries in the pediatric patient, useful for pediatric orthopedic surgeons, orthopedic sports medicine surgeons, primary care sports medicine physicians and other professionals working with the young athlete.

Abstract
The kidneys participate in all vital processes of the body to maintain overall homeostasis and health. When kidneys are injured during surgical interventions, metabolic and hemodynamic control is disrupted, leading to dysfunction associated with greater mortality, length of hospital stay, and cost. Peri-operative Kidney Injury presents the epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes associated with kidney injury during the peri-operative period. Concepts and principles of care to prevent kidney complications during surgical procedures are provided to equip health care professionals along with strategies to manage acute kidney injury and associated challenges when they occur. Chapters detail diverse surgical settings, ranging from the more common, such as abdominal, cardiac, and vascular surgeries, to the intricately complex, including the use of the left ventricular assist device and organ transplants. This practical and comprehensive text blends the evidence-based standards of care with cutting edge advances in the field, while also providing the reader with a peek into innovations on the horizon.
