Diagnostic Imaging of the Foot and Ankle Book Review:

The foot has a special place in musculoskeletal diagnosis due to its complex anatomy and because many similar symptoms can have different causes, each requiring a different approach to treatment. The evaluation of foot disorders and diseases requires close clinical–radiological correlation and communication with foot experts. Foot disorders and injuries increase with age, due in part to the rising popularity of recreational sports in all age groups. Diagnostic Imaging of the Foot and Ankle will help you train your eye to recognize disorders and diseases of the foot and ankle, including those that are often misdiagnosed or overlooked. Key Features: By practitioners for practitioners: First-hand knowledge from leading surgical and orthopedic foot experts and radiologists Clear and concise: A textbook and reference in a user-friendly layout focused on the foot and ankle Uniform format: Entities are described by definition, clinical presentation, imaging modalities, typical imaging features, differential diagnosis, treatment options, course, and pitfalls Clinical aspects and treatment: Clinical–radiological correlation plus a concise review of treatment options The new standard: This information on the foot and ankle is available nowhere else in such a condensed form Highest quality images: More than 500 superb illustrations including high-resolution images acquired with high-field MRI and multi-channel coils

Essentials of Regional Anesthesia Book Review:

The management of pain can often be achieved by medications, physical therapies, or by various procedural techniques that have evolved in recent decades. With the trend towards more outpatient surgeries and less invasive surgeries to decrease perioperative risk, perioperative time, and costs, the practice of anesthesia is evolving to utilize regional anesthesia techniques both for inpatients and outpatients. Regional anesthesia is being performed for outpatient surgeries, obstetric anesthesia, trauma, chronic pain states, and for acute post-operative pain management. Therefore, it is paramount for physicians and nurses practicing anesthesia to understand the essentials of regional anesthesia, its evolving techniques, and appropriate utilization of modern equipment and technology to provide care safely. Essentials of Regional Anesthesia, Second edition, is a concise, up-to-date, evidence-based handbook that enables every resident, physician and nurse to understand the basics of regional anesthesia and the standard of care guidelines for the practice of regional anesthesia in a comprehensive fashion. This new edition includes: · Updated and new chapters on Ambulatory, Critical Care, and Obstetrics topics · Full color, clear, detailed, anatomic drawings · Clinically relevant, practical aspects of regional anesthesia · International contributing authors who are experts in their field · Latest ultrasound techniques and images Review of 1st edition: “There are many books available on regional anesthesia, and the trend is either to focus on illustrations, forgoing any discussion, or on text descriptions, making them bulky and hard to read. This book maintains that perfect balance between text and illustrations. It is truly a master companion book on regional anesthesia.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2012)

Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research Book Review:

Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research publishes quality articles encompassing all areas of accounting that incorporate theory from and contribute knowledge and understanding to the fields of applied psychology, sociology, management science, and economics. The series promotes research that investigates behavioral accounting issues. Volume 10 exemplifies the different types of behavioral investigations that are conducted in accounting. It contains two studies that provide insight into the current, technology based audit environment—an experimental markets study examining the need for continuous auditing and a case study examining electronic audit workpaper systems used in audit practice. This volume also contains two financial accounting studies---one examines the differences in individual investment decisions when software costs are capitalized versus expensed and the other utilizes a survey methodology to examine the ethical implications of various financial decisions. The next article in this volume examines how cognitive style affects search strategies and influences decisions of different decision makers. In addition, two of the articles focus on managerial issues. One examines the role of stress and burnout on job satisfaction, performance, and turnover; and another examines fairness and trust in a governmental accounting context. The last study in this volume develops a research tool for evaluating the information content in the management discussion and analysis contained within the annual report. This tool should provide useful to a wide range of researcher, not just those interested in examining behavioral issues. These articles are both interesting and insightful and should prove useful in facilitating future behavioral research. Advances in Accounting Behavioral Research is now available online at ScienceDirect — full-text online from volume 3 onwards.

Anesthesia of the Upper Limb Book Review:

Loco-regional anesthesia offers evident advantages in almost all branches of surgery since it couples perfect anesthesia with prolonged postoperative analgesia. Furthermore, new drugs and techniques are ensuring constant progress, and in the past decade the advent of ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia has played a key role by allowing direct visualization of all anatomic structures involved in regional blocks. In conjunction with electrostimulation, it has significantly increased the success rate of loco-regional anesthesia. This book, comprising 16 chapters and more than 140 color illustrations, provides detailed coverage of the techniques currently employed in upper limb anesthesia. It opens by reviewing the anatomy of the brachial plexus and the topographic anatomy as it is of the utmost importance for anesthesiologists to have a deep knowledge of anatomy despite the assistance offered by new tools. Subsequently the various techniques, including supraclavicular, infraclavicular, and axillary brachial plexus blocks, peripheral blocks, and intravenous regional anesthesia, are discussed in depth, with due attention to potential complications. Up-to-date information is also provided on the role of ultrasound, and an entire chapter is devoted to ultrasound-guided interscalene and supraclavicular blocks. The book will be an invaluable learning tool for students and an excellent aid in daily clinical practice for anesthesiologists.

Dupuytren s Disease Book Review:

Morbus Dupuytren is particularly widespread among northern Europeans. However, the therapeutic success-rate often leaves much to be desired. A 50% recurrence-rate after surgery indicates that the disease cannot be treated by surgery alone. This book therefore adopts two parallel approaches: emphasis is firstly placed on the systemic character of morbus Dupuytren in context with other connective tissue diseases by a description of the biochemical and molecular-biological changes in the diseased connective tissues; secondly, a diversified picture of the given anatomical facts serves to explain the employment of the various therapeutic approaches. Further, a description is given of the current surgical procedures.

Faces of Medicine Book Review:

1. MEDICINE Illness, disease and disability plague man in every culture. But the form they take is not the same everywhere. Neither is man's reaction. Coping strategies, and the experience and knowledge backing them, depend very much on cultural setting. So medicine, the fabric of strategy and know ledge, can only be understood in the context of culture. In western society today, severe judgements are passed on medicine. Its store of knowledge and experience, and its repertory of strategies, have grown immensely during the last few decades. But it hardly alleviates dominant ailments, especially chronic diseases, diseases of old age and disturbances of social and mental functioning. We know that these ailments have come to the fore as the incidence of more "primitive" diseases declined in industrial societies. Infant deaths, and malnutrition and infections striking at young age, have dwindled to marginal significance in Western Europe and life expectancy at birth is twice that of some 150 years ago. Thus our new troubles are connected with past successes.

Dupuytren s Disease Book Review:

In this volume a distinguished group of internationally renowned clinicians and basic researchers discuss the present state of knowledge of the etiologyand pathogenesis of Dupuytren's contracture, a disease responsible for a considerable portion of disabilities within the working population allover the world. Although the riddle of how the contracture of the palmar fascia develops is still unsolved, the data on the pathobiochemistry and clinic of Dupuytren's Disease achieved in recent years has led to a better understanding of the biochemical and morphological processes underlying the deformation and malfunction of the afflicted tissues. Research in Dupuytren's Disease now enters the era of molecular medicine, which opens up new experimental means of studying the pathological changes which occur during the formation of the contracture on a molecular level. In particular, data are presented as to the role of specific biological macromolecules influencing the phenotype expression of the palmar fascia cells which are involved in autoimmune reactions and present both at the cell surface as well as in the extracellular matrix to regulate cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions. In vitro cell culture models to investigate fibro-cytic modulations are available and havebeen applied to study the effects of specific biological molecules on isolated cells from healthy palmar fascia and Dupuytren's contracture. Complementary evaluations of morphological, epidemiological, and clinical data contribute essentially to the present understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of Dupuytren's Disease. This comprehensive and informative summary of the state of the art is completed by numerous references affixed to the individual contributions.

Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Book Review:

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a life-threatening occlusive disorder of the microcirculation that is characterized by systemic platelet agglutination, organ ischaemia, severe thrombocytopenia and fragmentation of red blood cells. In the opening study included in Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura: Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment, the authors analyze the principal risk factors and causes of this disorder.Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is diagnosed using standard laboratory tests: in addition to microangi-opathic hemolytic anemia and consumption thrombocytopenia, classical parameters for hemolysis show an elevated reticulocyte count, an undetectable serum haptoglobin concentration, and a markedly elevated lactate dehydrogenase level as well as the presence of schistocytes on the blood smear.The authors propose that there are other pathologies with moderate thrombocytopenia that we should consider, such as: hereditary thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, hereditary hemolytic uremic syndrome, and thrombotic microangiopathies associated with some medications, transplantation or hidden malignancies.The closing chapter aims to revise the management of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura in pregnant women. To effectively manage this disorder, it is crucial to obtain a prompt diagnosis, in conjunction with further monitoring and treatment, to avoid fetal loss and maternal complications.
