Abstract
Both surgical skill and histological preparation and evaluation are important for successful treatment of various malignant skin tumors. In addition, good knowledge of local patterns of infiltration is required to achieve complete excision. All tumors may show an irregular, often asymmetric, mainly horizontal subclinical infiltration with a wide extent. When deep infiltrations are present, they are also often asymmetric and hard to determine before excision. Until recently these tumor outgrowths have only been detectable using histologic evaluation, but 3D histology is highly sensitive and can detect even very small tumor infiltrations. Very narrow margins can thus be taken for excision, which helps spare healthy skin as only a subsequently targeted re-excision will be necessary to remove all of the asymmetric tumor infiltrations. Therefore the resulting defect will be as small as possible and as large as necessary, and can be adapted to the requirements for aesthetic surgical defect closure. 3D Histology Evaluation of Dermatologic Surgery compares the most commonly used methods in order to give the reader a graphical overview of the current state-of-the-art. The basic principles of various surgical methods and histological workups of the complete 3D tumor margins are described and extensively illustrated to allow better understanding. Furthermore, more complex treatments of larger tumors are also included. Therefore, this book will be vital for all involved in the management of these patients, including practicing and trainee dermatologists, ENT, plastic and facial-surgeons, pathologists and oncologists.

Abstract
Back Cover Text: Breast reconstructive and oncoplastic surgery can reduce the sense of mutilation resulting from oncologic surgery and meets the need to provide breast cancer treatment that will not only eradicate the cancer but also re-establish the patient's quality of life. However, the difficulties inherent in preoperative planning and the intraoperative complexity of breast reconstruction and oncoplastic techniques represent major challenges for the breast surgeon. This atlas, intended for surgeons at every level, is an all-inclusive guide that documents surgical techniques step by step by means of a wealth of more than 1000 color photos, additional high-quality drawings and illustrations, and succinct accompanying text. Both common, established procedures and the most recently introduced techniques are covered, ensuring that readers will have at their disposal multiple approaches for breast repair, remodeling, and reconstruction. In addition to the comprehensive descriptions of techniques, preoperative planning is explained, indications and contraindications are identified, and the management of surgical complications is discussed. Tips, pitfalls, and key points are highlighted. The Atlas of Breast Reconstruction is an unprecedented tool that will increase and refine the arsenal at the oncoplastic surgeon's disposal in order to ensure that the best treatment can be offered to each individual patient.
Contents
1. Reconstruction technique for total mastectomy -- 2. Reconstruction technique for partial mastectomy and other partial breast deformities -- 3. Reconstruction and correction techniques for nipple-areola complex -- 4. Lipofilling -- 5. Surgical corrections of complications.

Abstract
Surgery for head neck cancer has evolved greatly in the recent years. Appropriate surgical resection with negative margins still remain corner-stone in achieving good oncological outcome. This atlas proposes a new concept of "The Compartment Surgery" to achieve negative margins in third dimensions which is the problem area in majority of cases. Reconstructive techniques have evolved vastly in the recent years with use of microvascular free flaps and this has significantly improved the functional outcome. Performing each step in appropriate manner cumulatively enables us to perform more complex procedures. Theme of this atlas revolves around this fact. This atlas on head and neck cancers takes a fresh stylistic approach where each surgical procedure is described in a step-wise manner through labeled high-resolution images with minimal incorporation of text. This allows the surgeons to rapidly revise the operative steps of a procedure within minutes just before they start a surgery. Head and neck has multidimensional anatomy and surgical treatment requires specific approach for each subsite. This operative atlas covers the entire spectrum of common, uncommon and rare cancers of the head and neck area. Each subsite is addressed in a separate chapter with further subdivisions for surgery of tumors with varying extent. Each procedure is demonstrated with photographs of each surgical step and line diagrams. Commonly used flaps (regional and free flaps) are demonstrated in separate chapter for reconstruction. With over 1000 images, and coverage of both the ablative and reconstructive surgical procedures, this is a technique-focused atlas in comparison to the available comprehensive texts. There are two chapters on very advanced cancers, and surgery in resource constrained surgical units making the book relevant to a wide range of cancer surgeons and fellows-in-training in varied clinical settings.
Contents
Concepts for compartment resection -- General Head and Neck surgical procedures -- Tumors of Parotid -- Disease of Neck -- Tumors of Parapharynx space -- Tumors of Buccal mucosa and Alveolus -- Tumors of Tongue and Floor of Mouth -- Tumors of Oropharynx -- Tumors of Larynx and Hypopharynx -- Tumors of Nose and Paranasal sinus -- Skull base tumors -- Tumors of Infratemporal Fossa -- Treatment of very advanced head and neck cancers -- Head and Neck cancer surgery in resource constrained setup -- Flaps.

Abstract
In many centers of excellence in Urology, robotic prostatectomy has become the first choice for the surgical treatment of localized prostate cancer owing to benefits such as reduced pain and minimization of impotence and incontinence. This atlas, specifically designed for use by surgeons, provides a beautifully illustrated, step-by-step guide to all aspects of the procedure. The various techniques that can be employed to achieve excellent oncological and functional results are carefully depicted in appropriate detail; for example, nerve-sparing techniques, bladder neck reconstruction, and approaches aimed at the early restoration of continence are clearly described. Special situations, such as prior prostate surgery, a large prostate, and salvage prostatectomy, are also fully covered. The information contained in this atlas will be of great value in enabling surgeons to improve their results and to take full advantage of the benefits of robotic prostatectomy compared with open prostatectomy.

Abstract
This book presents, in a stepwise and interactive fashion, approximately 75 clinical-pathological entities that reflect the wide spectrum of pathology encountered in the sellar and parasellar region and have been gathered over a period of decades by the authors. Multiple examples of high-quality radiologic and histopathologic images depicting the differentiating features of the varying lesions are presented, and key operative and clinical management pearls are briefly reviewed in a concise, bullet point format. The interdisciplinary nature of this easy-to-use color atlas and textbook reflects the fact that the management of patients with sellar and parasellar lesions is itself often interdisciplinary, making this atlas a useful resource for any practitioner or trainee who cares for patients with pituitary disease and anterior skull base pathology. The format is unique in that no similar interdisciplinary book is dedicated specifically to the comprehensive catalogue of lesions in this intricate region of the brain and skull base.

Abstract
This Atlas provides an easy-to-follow operational guide to laparoscopic techniques. It features a wealth of photos to illustrate esophageal carcinoma surgery. Through step-by-step anatomical photographs, it clearly depicts the Ivor-Lewis operative and Ivor-Lewis-Mckeown operative techniques. Using a consistent format, it addresses the clinical anatomy, pre-operative considerations, operative steps, post-operative care, and pearls and pitfalls to make it easy-to-read. The authors emphasize the similarities of the principles and steps between open and laparoscopic surgery, which significantly simplifies the transition from one practice to the other. This Atlas also includes a description of anesthesia techniques, a guide to the use of staplers in laparoscopic surgery, and a comparison of the energy sources available for laparoscopic surgery, while also outlining future developments, e.g. the increasing prevalence of robotic surgery for these procedures. The Atlas offers an essential guide for practitioners and trainees, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgeons, and experienced esophageal surgeons who are preparing to change to minimal invasive techniques for the management of esophageal carcinoma. It will also benefit all surgeons who are seeking clear photos detailing how to perform these esophageal carcinoma operations.

Abstract
This illuminating and comprehensive work offers readers a thorough and detailed perspective of brainstem surgery as well as state-of-the-art discussion on the diagnosis and management of related pathologies. Hailing from around the globe and currently practicing in various countries in Asia, Europe, and North America, the expert authors of this work represent a wide range of disciplines and experiences, providing a comprehensive, interdisciplinary overview of brainstem surgery. Indeed, brainstem pathologies remain the most challenging to manage surgically due to the high eloquence and the deep and hidden location of the brainstem, turning surgical treatment of brainstem pathologies into one of the most complex and demanding fields in neurosurgery. This vital book guides readers through this very complex anatomical territory in which any pathology leads to grave consequences. Taking readers through the depth of the complex architecture of the brainstem in the clinical context, and emphasizing the evidence-based treatment of different brainstem pathologies while also reviewing what the future holds for the management of these pathologies, the book presents a review of state-of-the-art preoperative assessment modalities and surgical. The book covers brainstem-related pathologies from infancy to adulthood, and the text is enriched with diagnostic and surgical images that cover almost all types of brainstem lesions. The book is written in a way that neurosurgery specialists and fellows will feel comfortable navigating throughout its contents, and the enthusiastic neurosurgery resident will find this book to be a valuable guide. A major contribution to the clinical literature, Brainstem Tumors: Diagnosis and Management will also serve as a reference for anyone involved in the treatment of patients suffering from brainstem pathologies, including medical team members such as adult and pediatric neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurooncologists, residents and fellows, clinical neuropsychologists, electrophysiologists, neuroradiologists, and medical students who have a passion to learn about the assessment and surgical management of patients with brainstem diseases.
