surgery of cono truncal anomalies 2016

francois lacour-gayet

description

this book addresses the most technically demanding but life-changing techniques in the treatment of conotruncal heart defects, as many repairs are performed on small infants. each chapter reviews surgical anatomy (the anatomical classification that the surgeon is using), preoperative evaluation (the surgeon's check list before doing the surgery), and surgical techniques (clear drawings and videos, minimal text). it is an essential reference book for newly qualified surgeons when performing these complex cases. conotruncal heart defects (cthds) are a group of complex congenital anomalies of the cardiovascular system that are a major cause of symptomatic cardiac disease at birth. they may account for up to 30% of all congenital cardiac anomalies. in many instances, patients with cthd are symptomatic in the first days or weeks of life, with severe cyanosis or heart failure, requiring surgery in the neonatal period or in infancy. most chtd are today diagnosed in utero by fetal ultrasound.
chtds are usually defined as malformations of the cardiac outflow tracts and presumably result in disturbance in the development of the cono-truncal apparatus of the embryonic heart, as well as of the primitive aortic arches. cthds include the following: truncus arteriosus, tetralogy of fallot, double outlet right (or left) ventricle, transposition of the arteries, corrected transposition of the great arteries, interrupted aortic arch. the outcomes of chtd surgery has considerably improved in the past 20 years, with quite fascinating innovations.show more

ralph w. aye

this book is intended for surgeons wanting to take their antireflux practice to an advanced level. it focuses on what experts do in real life, highlights pitfalls in skillful patient selection and fundoplication surgical technique, and addresses how to handle the "curve balls". it also provides recommendations on obtaining high patient satisfaction and building relationships with referring physicians. it is intended as an "expert" level manual to help readers move to the next level in their practices. from patient assessment and selection, anticipation of perioperative challenges, intraoperative problem-solving and technique, and postoperative management of side-effects, to reducing long-term recurrence rates and resumption of antisecretory medication, these expert authors dig deep to share the pearls of wisdom that make the difference between the average surgeon and the expert. written by experts in the field, fundoplication surgery: a clinical guide to optimizingresults confronts the issues that have hindered the broader use of fundoplication nationally and is a valuable resource and reference guide for addressing ambiguous symptoms and test results in one's practice.

injuries to the chest wall diagnosis and management

mckee, michael d., schemitsch, emil h. (eds.)

up-to-date and multidisciplinary, this text brings together all of the latest research and clinical treatment strategies for the management of injuries to the chest wall and rib cage. the management of trauma to the chest wall, especially “flail chest” injuries, has been relatively stagnant for many years. non-operative treatment has been the standard of care, and despite some advances, has reached the point where there is little new to offer a severely traumatized patient. however, recently, there has been a dramatic increase in the interest in surgical fixation of unstable chest wall injuries. specifically, plate or intramedullary nail fixation of multiple rib fractures has rapidly become the state-of-the-art in many trauma centers, and there have multiple research papers, reviews, new fixation devices, and instructional courses at national level meetings on this topic. this book assembles a diverse group of experts in the field—orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, anesthetists, basic science researchers—to produce the definitive work on this topic that will appeal to a wide variety of medical practitioners.

chest wall deformities and corrective procedures

kolvekar, shyam, pilegaard, hans (eds.)

this book discusses predominantly pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum, its variation and the treatment modalities available, including minimally invasive surgery. this will help to increase awareness of the available treatment options to doctors and healthcare workers but will also help trainee cardiac and thoracic surgeons. it is also an essential reference book for those already practicing.

cardiovascular surgery

cardiovascular surgerysemrád michal – krají ek milan – ebesta pavel
the history of surgical approaches to many diseases spans several centuries. however, the last century, and particularly its second half, witnessed an establishment of specialized surgical fields, such as urology surgery, neurosurgery and thoracic surgery, as a result of the rapidly growing knowledge of physiology, pathophysiology, blood transfusion, infection control as well as thanks to excellent new diagnostic methods and technological discoveries. after the second world war, successful cardiac surgeries were carried out and later, in the 1960s, these were followed by vascular surgeries. the progress in sonography and arteriography, along with the development of new instruments, extracorporeal circulation, vascular substitutes and artificial valves, and last but not least, significant progress in the medicine in general, gradually resulted in the development of one of the pillars of modern surgery – cardiovascular surgery.
although this publication is primarily intended to help prepare foreign students at czech universities for the demanding state examination in surgery, the arrangement of the text also makes it useful for further, special exams in cardiac and vascular surgery. after the graduation from the university.

approximately 120 different surgical procedures are used to correct congenital heart diseases, and the burden that this places on the surgeon is compounded by the exceptional complexity of the techniques and the rarity of many of the lesions. training is problematic, not least because of legal issues, and currently available texts, drawings, and images are no substitute for real ‘live’ surgery.

against this background, the authors have set out to create an interactive multimedia manual that covers many aspects of congenital heart surgery. each heart defect is addressed in an individual chapter, elaborating specific surgical anatomy and indication for surgery of heart defect first, followed by video clips depicting the operative approach and technique. the clips are accompanied by a clear descriptive narrative, and patient history and diagnostic images are available to provide a clear backdrop to the operation. the chosen format makes this manual not only a very powerful teaching tool for practicing cardiac surgeons and surgeons in training but also a valuable source of information for related services such as pediatric and adult cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologist, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists and medical students.

pocket manual of general thoracic surgery

secondary mitral valve regurgitation

by khalil fattouch (editor), patrizio lancellotti (editor), gianni d. angelini (editor)
ischemic or idiopathic mitral valve disease (so called secondary mitral valve regurgitation) is a rather new concept. this topic is deeply polarizing the attention of the cardiologist and cardiothoracic community. although there is an impressive amount of efforts to understand the etiology, mechanism, treatment and prognostic factors, still clear indications and guide-lines are missing. therefore this group of patients lie in a grey-area and physicians looking after them cannot count on proper recommendations. the main purpose of this book is to review the most relevant knowledge about secondary mitral valve regurgitation, from the anatomy, definition, classification, diagnosis and prevalence to the up-to-date surgical and medical management.
