Abstract
This volume provides readers with the necessary information to select the most appropriate nutritional support following gastrointestinal tract surgery. Most patients are worried about resuming oral intake, particularly when the surgery has altered the GI tract normal physiology removing organs (e.g. total colectomy) or part of them, or modifying the natural sequence of the different GI tract parts (e.g. after esophagectomy or pancreatectomy). Patients may also worry about the possible complications of an inappropriate alimentation. As a matter of fact, several metabolic processes can be modified by GI tract surgery (e.g. major liver resection or pancreatectomy), thus making the nutritional support essential: and the same support is fundamental in bariatric surgery, nowadays widely used for super-obese patients. There is therefore a need for a nutritional guide in surgery and in troubleshooting postoperative cases where nutrition is a major issue This book offers nutritionists insights into the possible alterations of GI tract physiology occurring after surgery, and will be a valuable resource for surgeons, gastroenterologists, coloproctologists, nutritionists and clinical specialist nurses, seeking guidance on postoperative nutrition.

Abstract
This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of optimal postoperative care in patients who have undergone thoracic surgery and discusses challenging issues that are of interest not only in the context of thoracic surgery but also more generally within the fields of anesthesia, intensive care, and pain medicine. The coverage ranges, for example, from use of non-invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and new monitoring devices to fluid management, pain control, and treatment of arrhythmias. A key feature of the book is the exceptionally attractive list of authors, who represent the most authoritative experts on the topics that they address. The approach is appropriately multidisciplinary, acknowledging that in many centers thoracic anesthetists are responsible for care during the postoperative period. This book is exceptional in being devoted solely to postoperative care in thoracic surgery, even though the difficulties involved in thoracic operations sometimes exceed those of cardiac surgery, especially in the postoperative period.
Contents
1. What happens to the lung during mechanical ventilation and one-lung ventilation? -- 2. Where should I send my patient after the operation? -- 3. Does it matter, how I ventilate the patient during the operation? -- 4. Can the postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC) be objectively evaluated? -- 5. Fluid management during and after the operation: Less is more or more is less? -- 6. How to organize the PACU? How to treat in PACU? -- 7. Should I blame the surgeon: Surgical complications and surgical treatment of the complications -- 8. Should every "myasthenic thymectomy" be sent to ICU? -- 9. How about esophagectomies? -- 10. Do the new devices of monitoring make sense compared to the "classical" ones? -- 11. What are the specific challenges in the postoperative mechanical ventilation after thoracic surgery? -- 12. Pros & Cons of non-invasive ventilation after thoracic surgery -- 13. Lung surgery and extracorporeal oxygenation -- 14. Pneumonia after thoracic surgery -- 15. When and how do I have to treat the arrhythmias after thoracic surgery? -- 16. Management of antiaggregated and anticoagulated patients scheduled for thoracic surgery: recommendations for venous thromboprophylaxis -- 17. Pain management following thoracic surgery -- 18. Rehabilitation for thoracic surgical patients: why, when and how -- 19. Perioperative care of thoracic trauma patient -- 20. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the postoperative period.

Abstract
This text reviews the postoperative management of patients who have undergone cardiac surgical procedures, some of the most common and most complicated forms of surgery. These patients and their management are characterized by complex challenges, while among the factors determining ultimate clinical outcome, postoperative critical care is of major importance. This new and extensively updated edition of Postoperative Critical Care for Cardiac Surgical Patients maintains the general clinical approach in explaining and analyzing the course of clinical care in patients undergoing cardiac surgery, providing the reader with a practical "cookbook" of postoperative intensive care in adult cardiac patients. It has been extensively updated to include the developments in this field during the last few years, from new chapters on postoperative management of renal, gastrointestinal and respiratory systems, postoperative management of infectious and inflammatory complications, and postoperative care of transplant patients and postoperative safety. This book is of critical importance for cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists and intensivists, and defines optimal daily practice for adult patients undergoing cardiac surgical procedures.
Contents
Introduction to postoperative care of adult cardiac surgical patients -- Risk and Outcome Assessments in adult Cardiac Surgery -- Cardiac physiology -- Cardiovascular Pharmacology -- Principles of Pharmacoeconomics -- Cardiovascular monitoring after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative Central Nervous System Monitoring after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative coagulation and bleeding: monitoring and hematologic management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Cardiovascular Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Renal and GI Complications & their Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Respiratory Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- CNS Complications & Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Infectious and inflammatory Complications & their Management after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative rhythm disorders after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Fluid management and electrolyte balance after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Acid-base balance and blood gas analysis after adult Cardiac Surgery -- Postoperative care of adult cardiac transplant patients -- Postoperative safety in adult Cardiac Surgery.

Abstract
This book describes and illustrates the normal and abnormal postoperative appearances that may be observed following common orthopaedic surgical procedures in patients with sports injuries. The majority of sports injuries comprise ligamentous, cartilage, and tendon injuries at and about the joints. While surgical repair techniques for such injuries have advanced immeasurably over recent years, it is essential that any postoperative abnormalities are recognized promptly. Therefore a key aim of Postoperative Imaging of Sports Injuries is to explain which imaging appearances are to be expected and which are not. The book is primarily organized according to the involved joints and covers procedures for shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, hip, knee, and foot and ankle injuries. An additional chapter addresses articular cartilage repair techniques and their normal and abnormal imaging appearances. The authors are leading radiologists from Europe and North America who draw on their extensive experience. The book is copiously illustrated and readers will also have online access to ultrasound video clips.

Abstract
Solid organ transplantation offers a new chance at life to those suffering from failing organs. With these successes, however, comes the everyday management that is required to maintain health. The field of solid organ transplantation has become a part of medicine that generalists should be familiar with, as recipients are living longer and frequently returning to primary care for management. While specialists will still need to be involved with the care of solid organ transplant recipients on a life-long basis, many conditions will still need initial and often ongoing care by generalists, including infections, metabolic conditions, psychiatric illnesses, and malignancy. This book focuses on the care of adult solid organ transplant recipients, and is targeted at the level of the primary care provider. It begins with an introduction and overviews of solid organ transplantation and anti-rejection medications. It then delves into organ-specific chapters that provide the primary care provider with an overview of how to take care of patients with the most commonly-transplanted solid organs: kidney, kidney-pancreas, liver, heart, and lung. The final section focuses on specific complications that arise from transplantation including cancer, metabolic conditions, infections, and common presenting syndromes. Preventative health is also discussed, and the book concludes with a chapter on palliative care. Primary Care of the Solid Organ Transplant Recipient is a unique text that provides the reader with organ and complication-specific sections that can be independently read as they relate to the individual physicians and their patients. Written by experts in the field, this text is a valuable resource for primary care providers, medical students, residents and anyone involved in the care of solid organ transplant recipients.

Abstract
This book describes the techniques, strategies, and drugs that have been demonstrated by well-documented randomized trials to influence survival in the perioperative setting. It takes into consideration all types of adult surgery and will be relevant to the evaluation of any patient undergoing an operative procedure. Each chapter focuses on a specific procedure, device, or drug. The scope is accordingly wide, with coverage of topics as diverse as chlorhexidine oral rinse, clonidine therapy, insulin infusion, intra-aortic balloon pump support, leukodepletion, neuraxial anesthesia, and noninvasive respiratory support, to name but a few. In addition, the risks and benefits of using a web-based consensus process (as in this book) to identify effective means of reducing perioperative mortality are discussed. The clear text is supported by "how to do" sections and "key points" boxes that provide easily accessible practical information. Written by acknowledged international experts, Reducing Mortality in the Perioperative Period will be of interest for a wide variety of specialists, including surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and intensivists.
