Abstract
Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons provides a comprehensive guide to the use of ultrasonography in surgical practice of abdominal diseases. The content is divided into three major sections focusing on basic principles of ultrasound, ultrasound anatomy and pathology of the abdomen, and employment of ultrasound of the abdomen in surgical practice. A final section is dedicated to the logistics of incorporating ultrasound into a surgical practice. The first section provides an introduction to the principles of ultrasonography focusing on ultrasound physics, equipment, and instrumentation. A detailed approach to the various scanning methods and image interpretation is demonstrated with illustrations, images, and video. The second section focuses on ultrasound anatomy of the abdomen. Each chapter demonstrates the normal and abnormal ultrasound anatomy of specific abdominal organ or organ systems (abdominal wall, liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach, anorectum, retroperitoneum, vascular) with illustrations and images. The current status and technique of endoscopic ultrasound of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracks is addressed in this section. The third section provides a state-of-the-art review of the status of each major application of abdominal ultrasound in surgery. Topics range from trauma ultrasound and laparoscopic staging to techniques in ultrasound guidance and three-dimensional targeting. This section provides a comprehensive review of the employment of interventional, intraoperative, laparoscopic, transabdominal and endoscopic ultrasound. The fourth and last section addresses the practice aspects of incorporation of ultrasound into a surgical practice.

Abstract
Desmoid Tumors (DT), also called Aggressive Fibromatoses, are a rare fibroblastic proliferative disease, with an incidence of 2 to 4 new cases per million people per year. Despite the absence of a metastatic potential, DT cause significant morbidity and at times mortality due to its locally invasive behaviour. The anatomical locations can be abdominal, extra-abdominal (often in the extremities) and intra-abdominal. This book is the first manuscript dedicated entirely to Desmoid Tumors. Written by prominent clinicians, researchers and advocacy group experts, patients and professionals alike will find this to be a comprehensive review. Clinical presentation, imaging guidelines and treatment paradigms are highlighted. Both the sporadic and heredity forms (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) will be discussed. A thorough discussion on the unique issues in children with DT is included. A portion of the book will address the role of the APC gene, the ø-catenin protein and the role of mutations in the genesis of DT. Emerging cutting edge research techniques will be revealed. Also included is a thoughtful discussion on the controversial labelling of Desmoid Tumors as benign and the consequences of such a designation. The role of advocacy groups in supporting research and in promoting awareness of rare diseases such as DT will be outlined. This book will serve as basis to prepare clinicians, researchers and patients to embark on the quest for a cure for Desmoid Tumors.

Abstract
The majority of the obese population still does not take advantage of the available surgical possibilities. Clinical research should be oriented towards less invasive procedures that could be accepted by the mainstream. In 2012, most non-invasive bariatric techniques are still not standardized or sufficiently assessed, but they are being constantly upgraded. The purpose of this book is to spark a discussion between experts from around the world, and to gather relevant information on new technologies that will make it possible to enlarge the vision of bariatric care to a growing number of morbid obese and non-morbid obese patients.

Abstract
Hernia repair is one of the commonest operations in general surgery. Open or laparoscopic repair of a primary inguinal hernia is a relatively straightforward operation, but more complex abdominal wall hernias demand greater surgical skill and knowledge. The editors have assembled the world's top herniologists to describe and illustrate numerous surgical techniques in detail. The field of herniology has developed rapidly over the last few years. Since the previous edition of this book, published in 2003, new surgical techniques have been developed and many new prosthetic and biologic materials have been introduced. Management of Abdominal Hernias 4e presents an authoritative, comprehensive and fully updated account of the surgical techniques and the available prosthetic materials for performing repair of abdominal wall hernias. Both open and laparoscopic methods are included. It is aimed at general and specialist surgeons in the practice of clinical surgery, as well as trainee surgeons.
Contents
Preface -- Preface to the Third Edition -- General Introduction and History of Hernia Surgery -- Essential Anatomy of the Abdominal Wall -- Epidemiology and Etiology of Primary Groin Hernias -- Logistics -- Economics of Hernia Repair -- Principles in Hernia Surgery -- Prostheses and Products for Hernioplasty -- Biology of Prosthetics -- Anesthesia -- Complications of Hernia in General -- Inguinal Hernias in Children -- Umbilical Hernia in Babies and Children -- Diagnosis of a Lump in the Groin in the Adult -- Anterior Open Repair of Inguinal Hernia in Adults -- Extraperitoneal or Preperitoneal Open Repair of Groin Hernias Using Prosthetic Reinforcement -- Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair -- Femoral Hernia -- Umbilical, Epigastric, Spigelian Hernias -- Lumbar Hernia -- Hernias of the Pelvic Wall -- Incisional Hernia: The "Open" Techniques (Excluding Parastomal Hernia) -- Laparoscopic Incisional and Ventral Hernia Repair -- Parastomal Hernia -- The Laparoscopic Repair of Parastomal Hernias -- Complications of Laparoscopic Incisional and Ventral Hernia Repair -- Sports Hernias and Athletic Pubalgia.

Abstract
Bleeding from the liver surface during hepatic transection is one of the main factors affecting mortality and morbidity of liver resection. For this reason, numerous devices have been developed that employ a variety of techniques to minimize parenchymal damage and so improve the safety of resection. This book describes all the devices that are currently available for hepatic transection via open, laparoscopic, and robotic approaches. Procedures are explained and illustrated step by step using informative color figures and photographs. This landmark reference in the field will be an ideal guide for liver surgeons as well as a valuable tool for students, residents, and general surgeons.
