Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Molecular Mechanisms and Clinical Applications

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Molecular Mechanisms and Clinical Applications

Author: Nariyoshi Shinomiya Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/11/2019

This book focuses on hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) therapy from the molecular biology perspective and its clinical applications, including molecular mechanisms of HBO's positive effect on cellular function in hypoxic tissues. HBO is a therapeutic tool that enhances oxygen supply to hypoxic tissues and improves wound healing/tissue remodeling. Currently HBO therapy is applied to a wide range of clinical cases, which include not only acute hypoxic diseases but also many chronic and refractory diseases involving tissue hypoxia or intractable infection. HBO therapy is a well-recognized regimen for many researchers and clinicians. The first half of the book outlines basic molecular mechanisms of HBO and their potential applications for clinical activities, while the second half describes the rationale behind introducing HBO therapy into suitable clinical cases and presents successful clinical reports. It is primarily written for HBO clinicians, physiologists and basic research scientists, but is also of interest to clinicians who have an interest in this field considering introducing HBO therapy.

Color Atlas of Microsurgical Anatomy Vasculature of Surgical Flaps

Author: Zheng He-ping Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/09/2019

This is a well illustrated and practical monograph. It illustrates the establishment of blood circulation of skin flaps based on a surgical anatomy. It covers 107 types of skin flaps involving almost every part of the human body. All the specimens are from the fresh adult corpse perfused with red gelatin. It features over more than 200 illustrations that demonstrate fine specimens, explicit structures, and natural colors. Each group of figures illustrate well the origin, course, branches, and distribution of one nutrient vessel. It provides a concise and precise description for each figure, which lays stress on the key points in applied anatomy and might be understandable and acceptable. It provides the visual instruction and valuable reference book for specialists.

Indwelling Neural Implants Strategies for Contending with the In Vivo Environment

Indwelling Neural Implants Strategies for Contending with the In Vivo Environment

Author: William M. Reichert Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/09/2019

Despite enormous advances made in the development of external effector prosthetics over the last quarter century, significant questions remain, especially those concerning signal degradation that occurs with chronically implanted neuroelectrodes. Offering contributions from pioneering researchers in neuroprosthetics and tissue repair, Indwelling Neural Implants: Strategies for Contending with the In Vivo Environment examines many of these challenges, paying particular attention to how the healing of tissues surrounding an implant can impact the intended use of a device. The contributions are divided into four sections * Part one examines wound healing from the initial insertion trauma through the inflammatory and repair process, explaining how the action of healing varies throughout different areas of the body. * Part two considers various performance issues specific to particular implant components, including those that arise from the chemical, mechanical, thermal, and electrical impact on surrounding tissues. It discusses challenges that result from chronic tissue stimulation and heat effects that occur with on-chip and telemetric processing. * Part three presents both in vitro and in vivo approaches to assessing wound healing response to materials. It includes the contribution of the developer of a chronic hollow fiber membrane implant who explains how an in vivo model is used to assess molecular transport in brain tissue surrounding the implant. * The final section evaluates molecular and materials strategies for intervening in CNS wound repair and enhancing the electrical communication between the electrode surface and the surrounding tissue. It also presents novel approaches to nerve regeneration and repair.

Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) and Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME)

Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) and Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME)

Author: Sam Atallah Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/05/2019

This book captures cornerstone developments in a new body of knowledge and provides an expert resource on a hot topic in rectal surgery. Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) was designed for local excision of select rectal neoplasms, however soon it became realized that the TAMIS technique could be used for applications beyond local excision, most notably for transanal total mesorectal excision (taTME). This new operative technique has revolutionized our approach to the distal rectum by allowing for improved access, especially in obese male patients with an android pelvis, and by minimizing abdominal wall access trauma. The endpoints of improved oncologic resection, as defined by mesorectal envelope completeness, negative circumferential resection margins, and negative distal margin, are assessed. This book details controversies, pitfalls, and future directions of taTME and TAMIS. Chapters are authored by those on the forefront of innovation with TAMIS and taTME, and each is considered an authority on the topic. Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) and Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME) is a must-have reference for surgeons who are performing this operation and fellows in training who want to completely understand the various nuances of TAMIS and taTME.
