The Radiology Technologist’s Handbook to Surgical Procedures

by Anthony C Anderson (Author)

In the past several years, the rapid development of sophisticated imaging modalities has made radiology the fastest growing specialty in medicine. It is important for the radiologic technologist to keep pace with technology's advancements. The influx of freestanding outpatient facilities and the demands of insurance companies, HMOs and third party reimbursement have brought about change. Medical facilities have begun to call upon nurses, surgical technicians, and other non-radiologic personnel to assist with patient positioning during surgical procedures requiring imaging-creating a need for a concise, how-to guide to performing surgical procedures. The Radiology Technologist's Handbook to Surgical Procedures provides a quick reference for using fluoroscopic and x-ray equipment during surgical procedures. This book includes detailed descriptions and photographs taken in actual clinical settings. By using this manual as a foundation, the radiologic technologist will be able to master many of the operating room x-ray procedures.

Illustrated Abdominal Surgery: Based on Embryology and Anatomy of the Digestive System

by Hisashi Shinohara (Author)

This comprehensive, illustrated guide presents representative general surgery, including gastrointestinal tract, hepatobiliary and inguinal hernia. Surgery is generally based on the microanatomy; however, in practice surgery involves more dynamic and floating anatomy. In the last decade, the methods have been constantly improved, shedding new light on classical anatomical science. Laparoscopic is one such methodology. All illustrations presented in this book have been drawn by the author – a pioneering surgeon – and show real-world procedures. All the methods introduced are practical and have been refined based on the precise clinical and embryological anatomy. This unique book offers readers essential insights into efficient and high-integrity surgeries in abdominal region. As such, it is a valuable resource for all gastrointestinal surgeons.

Eyelid Reconstruction

by Suzanne K. Freitag

Highly practical eyelid surgery resource informs important reconstruction decisions and strategies Skin malignancies frequently affect the periocular area, necessitating excision followed by eyelid reconstruction. Periocular trauma is also quite common, and because of the highly complex regional anatomy, requires expertise for effective reconstruction. Preparation by ophthalmic plastic surgeons prior to periorbital reconstruction is often not possible due to the unpredictability of defects left after Mohs micrographic surgeons clear tumor margins or in cases of trauma. Eyelid Reconstruction by renowned expert Suzanne Freitag and esteemed coeditors N. Grace Lee, Daniel Lefebvre, and Michael Yoon fills a void in the literature. The book provides a quick and practical ophthalmic plastic surgery guide on how to plan and perform a full spectrum of periocular reconstruction procedures. The textbook is a compilation of patient cases and the authors' vast, richly diverse expertise. The book starts with two chapters covering complex periorbital anatomy and basic surgical principles, both of which are critical to performing safe and effective surgery. The third chapter provides a comprehensive overview of Mohs surgery in the periorbital area, an important topic given many defect reconstructions are secondary to Mohs micrographic surgical excisions. Subsequent chapters, organized by anatomic region, feature discussion of surgical approaches for reconstructions of various size and depth defects. The final chapter details eyelid trauma repair, including lid margin and lacrimal lacerations. Key Features

  • An essential go-to pre- or peri-operative reference surgeons can consult quickly as reconstruction cases arise
  • Practical and concise procedural descriptions accompanied by numerous high-quality photographs and illustrations enhance comprehension
  • Chapters dedicated to medial canthus, lower eyelid, upper eyelid, and lateral canthus reconstruction procedures discuss special considerations based on underlying anatomy, adnexal structures, and required functions
This is a must-have resource for residents, fellows, and experienced surgeons in the fields of ophthalmic plastic surgery, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, dermatology, Mohs surgery, and maxillofacial surgery.
