Abstract
This book provides step-by-step instructions on how to operate with 27G instrumentation in a wide range of surgical indications, including vitreous floaters, macular holes, dropped nucleus, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, submacular hemorrhage, retinopathy of prematurity and much trauma. All surgeries are approached in cookbook fashion, with initial coverage of the "ingredients" (devices and instruments) and then meticulous description of preparation and performance with supporting photographs, drawings, and videos. In addition, the differences and benefits in comparison with 23G and 25G vitrectomy are highlighted. Small-gauge vitrectomy has radically changed the ways in which vitrectomy is performed. 27G vitrectomy is the most recent and most exciting development in small-gauge vitrectomy. The healing time is faster but the small diameter prolongs the duration of surgery. This obstacle has been overcome with powerful new vitrectomy machines and revolutionary vitreous cutters with two cutting blades making 27G vitrectomy as fast as 25G. This new equipment has expanded the indications for 27G surgeries immensely from detachment surgery to retinopathy of prematurity and the advent of new instruments may make 27G the gold standard in the future. This book, written by authors with huge experience in 27G vitrectomy, will enable surgeons to fully exploit its advantages.

Abstract
This atlas is unique in comparing the two disciplines of dental implant surgery and tooth-preserving surgery with respect to common procedures, problems, and failures and in providing excellent guidance on the prevention and management of complications. The etiology of a wide variety of implant-related and non-implant-related complications and failures is carefully explained. Since many complications have their roots in oral and periodontal surgical maneuvers, these maneuvers are themselves discussed and extensively illustrated. The most frequently used tooth preservation procedures are also fully described, with emphasis on correct surgical technique as a means to avoid complications. The use of these procedures is constantly weighed against the effects of tooth removal and insertion of dental implants. The text is complemented by the inclusion of a substantial number of helpful references. While the atlas is intended primarily for dentists involved in outpatient implant dentistry and oral surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgeons will also find the descriptions of innovative techniques or maneuvers to be of interest, including those relating to the selection of incision and flap design and the sinus floor elevation techniques.

Abstract
To date, diet programs and medical therapies for the treatment of obesity have had limited success. Bariatric surgery, however, provides a means of effective weight loss for many of those with morbid obesity. Most of these weight loss procedures are performed with a variety of techniques that continue to evolve. Each technique is associated with unique challenges and complications and it is important for the clinician to be knowledgeable about the endoscopic management of these patients. Additionally, as endoscopic technology evolves it may offer more than just the diagnosis and treatment of complications. Endoscopic therapy may soon allow less invasive bariatric revision procedures as well as a variety of primary obesity therapies for various patient populations. Bariatric Endoscopy reviews the management of obesity, normal post-surgical anatomy, endoscopic and medical management of post-surgical complications, and future endoscopic therapies for obesity management. Organized into five sections, the volume covers an obesity overview, traditional therapy, endoscopy and the bariatric patient, medical management of post-surgical complications, and the future role of endoscopy in obesity management. Detailed illustrations are also provided for surgical procedures, complications and obesity management chapters. Authored by authorities in the field, Bariatric Endoscopy is an indispensible tool for the gastroenterologist or surgical endoscopist as they care for patients with complicated bariatric issues.

Abstract
This book provides a concise, focused and clinically relevant summary of complications and emergencies related to bariatric surgery. The first section of the text addresses general complications related to anesthesia and the stress of surgery, including issues such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, hemorrhage, pneumonia and cardiac complications. Additionally, this section addresses the workup of the bariatric patient with abdominal pain. The second portion of the text focuses on gastric bypass and sleeve-specific complications, including staple line and anastomotic leaks, internal hernia, marginal ulceration, GI obstruction, hernia formation and gallstone disease. The third portion of the book examines metabolic, nutritional and psychological complications after bariatric surgery. The text also covers management of weight loss failure. Bariatric Surgery Complications and Emergencies serves as a very useful resource for physicians and surgeons who are involved in any parts of evaluation or management of bariatric patients suffering from postoperative complications or emergencies including bariatric surgeons who perform these operations on a regular basis, non-bariatric general surgeons who cover such patients when on-call, surgical trainees, and primary care physicians.

Abstract
This text provides a background of scientific evidence to understand the complications that occur after bariatric surgery for all providers responsible for care after surgical intervention. Written by experts and based on current peer reviewed literature, the text provides a focused approach to the identification and treatment of bariatric surgery complications. To establish a context for providers, the initial section concentrates on presenting the current procedures as well as risks and expected benefits of each with an emphasis on mechanism of action. It examines the issue of weight regain from the aspect of heterogeneity in order to present the perspective that every procedure has risk of weight regain. The text provides guidance to those front line providers who manage acute emergencies and chronic long term problems. State of the art management of complications like leaks, bleeding, ulcers, blood clots and pneumonia are discussed for all procedures in addition to the management of rapid remission of obesity related disease like Type 2 Diabetes and coagulopathies (Leiden Factor V, Protein C and S) that occur commonly in patients with obesity. Each chapter features a review of the current literature in an easy to reference table format and where appropriate an algorithm to focus the reader on the process of care for any given presenting sign or symptom. Bariatric Surgery Complications will be of great value to fellows in minimally invasive surgery, general surgeons, emergency room physicians, gastroenterologists, primary care physicians, medical students and residents in surgery rotations, integrated health personnel.

Abstract
The increasing prevalence of obesity in many countries means that it should now be considered a pandemic. It is widely recognized that obesity increases the risk of a variety of life-threatening conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and severe joint problems. Bariatric surgery is often the most effective way to treat such morbid obesity. Nevertheless, while various bariatric procedures have been proposed, to date standards have been lacking. In this book, leading experts from around the world discuss all aspects of bariatric surgery and present their own favored versions of surgical procedures with the aid of informative illustrations. Technical nuances are carefully described, and detailed attention is devoted to potential complications and how to avoid them. The expertise of the authors and the range of techniques considered guarantee that both trainees in bariatric surgery and experienced surgeons will find this book to be an invaluable source of information and guidance in their daily work.

Abstract
This handbook is an easy reference for those involved in the management of heart transplant. While this compilation of best practices cannot address the complexity of the individual patients we care for on a daily basis, it will serve to help us ask the right questions, access the best evidence and ultimately make the best decisions for the patients involved. Clinical Guide to Heart Transplantation provides a current review of the field of heart transplantation and how it has evolved into an established therapy for the treatment of end-stage heart failure. With the advent of improved surgical techniques, the development of immunosuppressive drugs and the utilization of more sophisticated monitoring strategies and treatments for graft rejection, heart transplantation now offer patients an avenue to both improved survival and quality of life. With over 4000 heart transplants performed per year globally and with 1-year survival approaching 90%, this practical title assists those involved in the this most complex of procedures to establish best practice. It is therefore essential reading for all practitioners in this field, charged with making critical decisions in the management of patients, donor organs, and the transplant process itself in order to achieve the greatest benefit in the utilization of this often scarce resource.
Contents
Introduction -- Options for Patients with End-Stage Heart Failure -- Evaluation of Heart Transplant Candidacy -- Listing Criteria and Process -- Optimal Management of Patients on the Heart Transplant Waiting List -- Histocompatibility Testing and Cross Matching -- The Sensitized Patient Awaiting Heart Transplantation -- Donor Organ Preservation and Surgical Considerations in Heart Transplantation -- Immediate Post-Operative Period -- Immunosuppression Strategies in Heart Transplantation -- Rejection Surveillance and Treatment in the First Year -- Out-Patient Management of the Heart Transplant Patient -- Long-Term Complications in Heart Transplantation -- The Total Artificial Heart -- Chimerism and Tolerance -- Genomics In Heart Transplantation -- The Future of Heart Transplantation.

Abstract
Written by leaders in the field, the third edition of Common Surgical Diseases: An Algorithmic Approach to Problem Solving, provides surgical residents and medical students with a current, concise and algorithmic approach to frequently encountered clinical challenges. Each chapter details every common surgical disease in the form of a succinct text coupled with step-by-step algorithm. It also walks the reader through the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the most common surgical problems. Thoroughly updated and revised, the third edition focuses on problems most frequently encountered by general surgeons and their residents and students. More factual information is included in the form of charts and tables for quick and easy reference. The section on critical care is updated and expanded. The section on pre-operative considerations has new chapters on how to best manage patient's medications before surgery (anticoagulants, anti-platelet drugs) and prophylaxis of deep venous thrombosis. Other new chapters include access for hemodialysis, adrenal incidentaloma, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, management of abdominal wall defects, hyperglycemia, necrotizing soft tissue infections and SIRS/sepsis. Especially pertinent in todays' medical environment is an understanding of the genetic component of certain cancers and chapters are devoted to screening and treating patients with genetic predispositions to colorectal and breast cancer.

Abstract
Complexities in Colorectal Surgery: Decision-Making and Management provides a unique, modern, practical guide that covers the strategic evaluation, specific approaches, and detailed management techniques utilized by expert colorectal surgeons caring for patients with complex problems whether they result from underlying colorectal disease or from complications arising from previous surgical therapy. The text is formatted as both a "how-to" manual as well as an algorithm-based guide allowing the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategies. By making use of evidence-based recommendations, each chapter will include not only diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines, but also a narrative by the author on his/her operative technical details and perioperative "tips and tricks" that they utilize in the management of these complex surgical challenges. This test includes chapters on the assessment of risk and nutritional intervention methods utilized to minimize perioperative complications. In addition, sections on medical and surgical therapies for abdominal, pelvic and anorectal disease are incorporated. Moreover, the technical challenges of managing complications resulting from the original or subsequent operations is addressed. The underlying focus throughout the text is to provide pragmatic and understandable solutions that can be readily implemented by surgeons of varying experience to successfully treat complex colorectal problems. The text also goes beyond the technical aspects of colorectal surgery and includes special sections highlighting the essence of a surgeon. These include chapters describing the importance of the first encounter, building patient rapport, and demonstrating confidence and competence while showing humility and avoiding arrogance. Additionally, aspects involving the medical-legal, ethical, and economic challenges confronting surgeons are covered.

How can one best master a rupture of the posterior capsule during cataract surgery? How should one operate on a dropped nucleus? What is the ideal management for a subluxated intraocular lens? If you are seeking answers to these and similar questions, then this is the book for you. Every surgeon is afraid of complications, but while complications cannot be entirely avoided, it is possible to learn to master them. This practical handbook clearly explains how to manage the various complications that may arise during cataract surgery. It provides the surgeon with clear instructions on how best to proceed in the manner of a cookbook, by first describing the ingredients (equipment) and preparation (planning) and then providing step by step descriptions of technique with the aid of numerous helpful color illustrations and several accompanying surgical videos. Surgical pearls and pitfalls are highlighted.

Abstract
This text provides the reader a starting point for the most difficult and uncommon complications in acute care surgery. It is designed to provide options to that ubiquitous intra-operative or bedside question "Well, now what do we do with this?" The topics have been chosen for the extreme difficulty of management and the surprising regularity that they present and the lack of large volume of accumulated evidence, where expert experience remains vital. The volume editors present a list of clinical scenarios, intra-operative findings, and ethical circumstances that few general surgeons in their career will see in their career. The authors represent the most prolific surgeons in practice today. They present how they wound manage these challenging acute care surgery problems based on their vast clinical experience. Here, these surgeons share their personal experience with the most difficult cases. The text is divided into 4 parts. The first part is "Global Patient Issues" when a singular surgical problem presents itself in a very complicated patient with an extensive list of unstable co-morbid diseases. The second part is "Specific Disease Issues." This is a surgical text and as such each issue is an unexpected intra-operative finding and expert management. The third part is "Post-Operative Issues" and as any seasoned surgeon knows, is the most critical part of managing a complicated surgical case. The last section is "Challenging Ethical Scenarios." The text is designed to provide the surgeon in training or the seasoned general surgeon unique clinical or operative options for the care of their patients.
