Abstract
What is the optimal design and fixation of the implants we use for orthopedic reconstructions? What is the gold standard for the management of patients requiring implants? Is there scope for improvement still further? Huge efforts have been made both by research scientists in orthopedics and the implant industry to furthering the options available for arthroplasty without necessarily considering the cost-effectiveness of this research to clinical outcomes. It has also become apparent that theoretical and laboratory studies do not always match the results of long-term clinical studies of which there regretfully few of sufficient quality. The Editor and his carefully chosen selection of contributors critically evaluate data from basic science, experimental in vivo and in vitro biological and mechanical models, autopsy specimens and long-term clinical studies to answer these questions. Bone-Implant Interface in Orthopedic Surgery: Basic Science to Clinical Applications focuses on the bone-orthopedic implant interface in general and will be useful both for the novice who seeks a quick introduction to this specific topic and for more experienced surgeons who seek an in depth critical review of current practices.

Abstract
Over the last decade, remarkable innovations in transcatheter technologies have led to the rapid development of minimally invasive therapies that have challenged conventional treatment. Amongst these, none is as remarkable as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). An archetype of "bench-to-bedside" medicine, the origins of TAVR spanned the expertise and vision of clinicians, engineers, researchers and imagers. With increasing numbers of TAVR procedures and large-scale trials demonstrating an unparalleled reduction in mortality for inoperable patients with severe aortic valvular disease, the theme underpinning the foundation of TAVR--that of a multidisciplinary approach to its development--persists in its practice. This approach brings together a diverse group of experts to optimize patient outcomes and this extends to the convergence of different types of imaging specialists and modalities to support preparation for and performance and follow-up of TAVR. Multimodality Imaging for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement assembles the very best authorities in the field to create the ultimate resource to address the imaging needs associated with TAVR. It provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of aortic stenosis, the evidence supporting the use of TAVR, and an integrated approach to the indications, procedural aspects and pitfalls of imaging in TAVR. The reader will also gain an insight into which tests are optimal in specific situations and a step-wise method to harvest all the essential information provided with each modality. Thus, this book represents a key resource for all working in the field whether they be in training or practicing physicians, cardiac researchers, cardiac imagers, interventionalists, clinical cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, or any medical professional involved in the management of these patients.

Abstract
After the success of the first two editions, this expanded and extensively revised edition provides the interventional cardiologist with detailed, state of the art information on key techniques and approaches to percutaneous treatment of left side cardiac valve disease, keeping pace with the rapid and dynamic evolution in the discipline. Many new techniques and resources are now available, including new devices for transcatheter aortic valve implantation and new approaches to transcatheter mitral valve replacement. Numerous images will help the reader to understand the steps of each procedure and the characteristics of the different devices available. The potential complications and expected or potential morbidity from each procedure are discussed in depth, along with the best ways to manage them. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has revolutionized the field of interventional cardiology. Initially envisaged as a palliative technique for inoperable patients, it now offers high-risk patients a viable alternative to surgery. Several techniques are also available of transcatheter mitral valve repair, and initial cases of transcatheter mitral valve replacement have also been reported: the interest in these techniques is such that further significant technological advances are expected to be seen over the next few years. This highly informative, easy to read, and carefully structured guide provides interventional cardiologists with updated knowledge on the application of transcatheter techniques to cardiac valves.

Abstract
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation and percutaneous mitral valve repair have now been demonstrated to be credible alternatives to surgery in high-risk patients. The interest in these techniques is such that further significant technological changes are expected over the next few years. This revolution is already underway, rendering much prior knowledge obsolete. The success of the first edition of Percutaneous Treatment of Left Side Cardiac Valves has convinced us of the need to update the book in order to keep pace with the rapid and dynamic evolution in the discipline. Once again, this practical guide is designed to provide the reader with complete state of the art information on the techniques and approaches to percutaneous treatment of left side cardiac valve disease. Numerous images will help the reader to understand in detail the steps of each procedure. The potential complications and expected or potential morbidity from each procedure are discussed in depth, and the best ways to manage them are carefully explained. The book is also intended as a reference covering the up-to-date knowledge contained in the literature on the application of transcatheter techniques to cardiac valves.

Abstract
This comprehensive book covers all areas of prosthetic surgery, from surgical steps for procedures to following up with patients who are being considered for or have undergone prosthetic surgery. The authors provide a thorough background of the different types of prostheses and stents, allowing the reader to get the most up-to-date information about the materials used to manufacture the devices. Developments in the field of prostheses, infections and antibiotic coatings are covered in the chapters, as well as research on biofilms. Prosthetic Surgery in Urology is a timely reference book for both trainees and established urological surgeons. Professionals interested in expanding their clinical practice will find this book to be an essential resource for developing knowledge and skills in this area.

Choosing an uncemented femoral prosthesis means first choosing a concept and, to be effective, an operator has to have access to all the information that will allow them to reach the desired goals. This is the first step to be made. The quality of a surgical procedure does not depend on the manual skills of the surgeon performing it, but on how he has prepared and performed the operation "virtually" before actually performing it. This is the second step. An operating technique must be adapted t…

Abstract
Choosing an uncemented femoral prosthesis means first choosing a concept and, to be effective, an operator has to have access to all the information that will allow them to reach the desired goals. This is the first step to be made. The quality of a surgical procedure does not depend on the manual skills of the surgeon performing it, but on how he has prepared and performed the operation "virtually" before actually performing it. This is the second step. An operating technique must be adapted to the chosen concept and the purpose of every surgical procedure must be clearly formulated and understood by the operator. This is the third step. Every surgeon has to have a reliable and rigorous radiological method of analysis for evaluating overall results and which suggests ways of improving results.
