As a consequence of rapid changes in surgical technique and incorporation of new robotic technology and advanced intraoperative imaging, the second edition of this important textbook reflects these rapid changes in the field of robotic urologic surgery. The goals of this textbook are three-fold. First, it provides a comprehensive update on surgical techniques pertinent to each robotic urologic procedure being performed worldwide, spanning procedures performed for both upper urinary tract (e.g. adrenal, kidney, ureter) and lower urinary tract (e.g. bladder, prostate, seminal vesicle, vagina) as well as adult and pediatric conditions. Second, advances in new robotic instruments and technology as well as advanced intraoperative imaging modalities used for surgical navigation are incorporated. Third, to further improve upon the first edition, this textbook is highly illustrated with schematic drawings to aid an understanding of the surgical techniques. Links to online video content is presented throughout. Atlas of Robotic Urologic Surgery will serve as a vital step-by-step, highly illustrated comprehensive yet concise resource to urologic surgeons, trainees and robotic surgical assistants embarking on robotic surgery as part of their surgical armamentarium for treatment of urologic diseases.

Urology continues to be one of the most rapidly advancing specialities. Approximately 20% of all surgical operations and a similar percentage of surgical emergencies are urological in nature. However, often doctors have very limited experience of the many common and varied conditions encountered in this important surgical specialty. For the doctor or nurse expected to provide the initial assessment and management of a condition with which he or she has had very limited experience, this handbook provides an invaluable source of information and advice. Covering a wide spectrum of diseases and their treatment in the field of urology and surgical aspects of kidney, bladder, prostate and scrotal disorders, this handbook aims to give a brief overview of many different urological subjects including urological emergencies, cancers, infections, children's disorders and kidney stone disease. It is designed so that it can be quickly and efficiently accessed by a range of professionals involved in patient care, including medical students, nurses, surgical and urology doctors and general practitioners. Thoroughly revised for the third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Urology covers all recent guidelines and criteria including the significant advances in medical and surgical options that are now available to patients; key papers and national recommendations in the field of neurourology; expanded information on medical therapy of bladder overactivity and additional information on subjects including urethral diverticulum, pelvic organ prolapse, dialysis and renal transplantation, antenatal hydronephrosis, megaureters, and incontinence in children. An invaluable tool relevant not only to specialist trainees and specialist registrars on urology and surgical rotations, but also to general practitioners, emergency staff and the growing number of urological specialist nurses.

This book will help you take a badly wounded patient to the operating room, organize yourself and your team, do battle with some vicious injuries and come out with the best possible result. It is a practical guide to operative trauma surgery for residents and registrars, for general surgeons with an interest in trauma, and for isolated surgeons operating on wounded patients in military, rural or humanitarian settings. A surgical atlas may show you what to do with your hands but not how to think, plan and improvise. Here you will find practical advice on how to use your head as well as your hands when operating on a massively bleeding trauma patient. The first part of this book presents some general principles of trauma surgery. The second part is about trauma surgery as a contact sport. Here we show you how to deal with specific injuries to the abdomen, chest, neck and peripheral vessels. The single most important lesson we hope you will derive from this book is to always keep it simple because, in trauma surgery, the simple stuff works.

The Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review book has been designed to provide a review of core essential knowledge in gastroenterology, hepatology, and relevant related areas of radiology, pathology, endoscopy and nutrition to physicians, trainees and other persons caring for patients, gastroenterology fellows in training, medical residents, medical students, gastrointestinal assistants, nurses, and allied health care personnel. While less detailed than encyclopedic textbooks, it provides much more information than outline booklets. Clinical knowledge to enhance patient management, rather than the latest scientific advances is emphasized. For persons preparing for their board examination, certification or recertification, case-based presentations and numerous board examination-type single best-answer questions with annotated answers are provided. Abundant figures, images and tables are also included. The faculty authoring this book are all Mayo Clinic gastroenterologists and hepatologists who spend most of their time caring for patients and teaching in an academic environment.

Gerald Ulrich, MD provides an authoritative, advanced guide to theory-based EEG interpretation that is grounded in the Berlin Psychiatry School Model of EEG-Vigilance. The Berlin model is not well known in the United States. Instead, EEG is dominated by data-driven Q-EEG where one looks at mathematical correlations without a coherent theory to guide interpretation. This is the first known published book on this topic. Dr. Ulrich's aim is to help the reader increase self-confidence in EEG assessment in clinical practice or research and to facilitate more reliable and valid EEG interpretations. He provides a skilled synthesis of decades of EEG research alongside his expert insights from his 40 years of clinical experience and research with EEG. The reader will learn how to visually discern spatio-temporal patterns with 132 high-quality examples of EEG images - the majority within the course of spontaneous resting EEGs. Additionally, the EEG-pathology of psychiatric syndromes and the impact of common psychotropic medications on the EEG are described in detail. Another important contribution is the identification of a common type of biological artifact which has gone unnoticed in research that is likely responsible for the unsatisfactory test-retest reliability and questionable validity of the EEG; the author proposes a simple solution to this vexing artifact problem. In the second part of the book, the reader is introduced to novel QEEG procedures, especially related to EEG dynamics, which can be regarded as meaningful within the theory of EEG-vigilance.
