Principles and Practice of Neuro-Oncology
The field of neuro-oncology has experienced rapid growth in the last decade, characterized by robust advances in epidemiology, molecular biology, imaging, histopathologic harmonization, neurosurgical techniques, quality of life and cognitive functions, and therapeutic changes in terms of combined modality treatments, advanced radiation techniques, the advent of new drugs, especially targeted agents, and the tantalizing early promise of personalized therapeutic approaches. As dramatic as these changes are, we are merely at the cusp of an exponential explosion in knowledge in the field of neuro-oncology.

Libros de Medicina en PDF
Atlas of Robotic Urologic Surgery
The introduction of robotic surgery to the field of urology has had a dramatic impact on practice patterns worldwide. Few events have had as significant an impact on the field of urology even greater than the introduction of shock wave lithotripsy, lasers, percutaneous surgery, and laparoscopy. Despite the widespread adoption of robotics into urologic practice, robotic urologic procedures remain technically complex and the skill sets required to perform robotic surgery differ significantly from that of traditional open surgery.

Clinical Atlas of Skin Tumors – Can Baykal, K. Didem Yazganoglu


Libros de Medicina en PDF
Clinical Atlas of Skin Tumors
Skin tumors are undoubtedly one of the most important topics in dermatologic practice. Due to the variety of tissues present in normal skin, these umors have numerous types and subtypes.
The incidence of benign skin tumors is not low at all. The elderly, especially, may have hundreds of benign skin tumors. Some benign tumors have important implications as they may be the fi rst markers of a syndrome and they may also lead to functional or cosmetic problems.
On the other hand, underdiagnosis of malignant types may be the cause of mortality.

Libros de Medicina en PDF
Clinical Hematology Theory and Procedures 5th 2011
It is a pleasure to author the 5th edition of Clinical Hematology. Since the 1st edition was published in 1988, each edition has included exciting changes in clinical hematology and posed challenges to learn more and teach more in a fi xed time frame. The 5th edition retains the pedagogy that set the standard for clinical laboratory science textbooks since it was introduced in the 1st edition. Clinical Hematology now features integrated four-color images, tables, and boxes throughout the book for ease of learning. New online ancillaries include PowerPoint presentations, a quiz bank for students, and more than 800 unique test questions for instructors (see Additional Resources, below, for more information).

“Gastric Cancer Prewarning and Early Diagnosis System”
Gastric cancer is the fourth most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. It ranks number two among all malignant tumors in China. The gastric cancer prognosis is very poor with 5-year survivals below 24 %. How to realize gastric cancer prewarning and early diagnosis has become a key scientiic problem.

Encyclopedia of Pain


Libros de Medicina en PDF
Encyclopedia of Pain
As was pointed out in the Preface to the first edition, pain is the principal reason individuals seek medical and dental attention. Fortunately, acute tissue insults associated with pain – and typically inflammation – readily resolve with appropriate treatment and care. Chronic pain states, in contrast, are notoriously difficult to manage and are commonly associated with comorbidities (e.g., depression, cross-organ sensitization) and reduced quality of life. Indeed, chronic pain has come to be considered by some as a disease in its own right.

“PRACTICAL PATHOLOGY INFORMATICS “


Libros de Medicina en PDF
PRACTICAL PATHOLOGY INFORMATICS
Almost all areas of intellectual pursuit in which there is an element of subjectivity share an interesting internal paradox. At first exposure, the field is a complete mystery. Then, as one acquires some of the domain knowledge and learns about the rules, the field starts to make sense, and before long may even seem trivial. However, as one delves deeper and
acquires experience, complexities and subtleties begin to re-emerge, as well as realization of the validity of some of the exceptions to the rules, and the field is suddenly less obvious and clear than it was before.

“Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Surgery Case Atlas”


Libros de Medicina en PDF
“Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Surgery Case Atlas”
Limb lengthening and reconstruction surgery is a relatively new subspecialty of orthopedic
surgery. The Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society (LLRS) became a member of the Board of Specialty Societies (BOS) of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in 1999, and we have been working over the last few years to create a Limb Deformity section in the educational program of AAOS. This is a work in progress, but I am confident that it will happen. We do find it difficult at times to define and differentiate ourselves since there is an apparent overlap with other subspecialties including adult reconstruction, trauma, foot and ankle, pediatrics, tumor, and upper extremity.

“Sustainable Diets How Ecological Nutrition Can Transform Consumption and the Food System”
How can huge populations be fed healthily, equitably and affordably while maintaining the ecosystems on which life depends? The evidence of diet’s impact on public health and the environment has grown in recent decades, yet changing food supply, consumer habits and economic aspirations proves hard. This book explores what is meant by sustainable diets and why this has to be the goal for the Anthropocene, the current era in which human activities
are driving the mismatch of humans and the planet.

Studies in Forensic Biohistory

Studies in Forensic Biohistory
The lives of kings, poets, authors, criminals, and celebrities are a perpetual fascination
in the media and popular culture, and for decades anthropologists and other scientists have participated in “postmortem dissections” of the lives of historical figures. In this field of biohistory, researchers have identified and analyzed these figures’ bodies using technologies such as DNA fingerprinting, biochemical assays, and skeletal biology. This book brings together biohistorical case studies for the first time, and considers the role of the anthropologist in writing the historical narratives surrounding the deceased.

essentials of functional MRI


Libros de Medicina en PDF
In 1990, when I was a graduate student, I heard someone with a long, prestigious career of
developing and using magnetic resonance methods make an offhand comment that “everything
worth doing in MRI has been done.” Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was first
reported not long after. I have not forgotten the comment because it always makes me wonder
what new development will be reported tomorrow and what we will be able to do with fMRI,
10 years from now. At the very least, I believe fMRI will become a very powerful and commonly used tool for providing doctors with information about their patients’ neural function anywhere in the central nervous system—how it has been affected by trauma, disease, congenital effects, and other causes.

“Recovering Bioactive Compounds from Agricultural Wastes”


Libros de Medicina en PDF
“Recovering Bioactive Compounds from Agricultural Wastes”
Agriculture is regarded as one of the most important fields of human industry, due to its role in ensuring global food security for over 7 billion people around the world and supporting other industries. Agricultural production creates a great amount of residues/byproducts, which are considered ‘wastes’. Interestingly, agricultural wastes contain many valuable bioactive compounds, possessing a wide range of potential pharmacological properties, which have great contributions to make in related industries, such as nutraceuticals/functional foods, medicines, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

“Antimicrobial Drug Resistance Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects, Volume 2”


Libros de Medicina en PDF
“Antimicrobial Drug Resistance Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects, Volume 2”
Antimicrobial drug resistance is a global health problem that continues to expand as micro-organisms adapt to the antibiotics we use to treat them and as new classes of antimicrobial agents have been harder to discover and advance into the clinic. The second edition of Antimicrobial Drug Resistance grew out of a desire by the editors and authors to provide an
updated, comprehensive resource of information on antimicrobial drug resistance that would
encompass the current information available for bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses. The two volumes have been extensively revised with many new authors and chapters as the field of drug resistance has evolved. We believe that this information will be of value to clinicians, epidemiologists, microbiologists, virologists, parasitologists, public health authorities, medical students, and fellows in training.
