Lacrimal Drainage Surgery

Author: Isloor Suresh D

This book, Lacrimal Drainage Surgery, deals with drainage surgery. Tearing disorders are among the most common dilemmas that ophthalmologists encounter. Restoration of lacrimal system patency involves surgical techniques that are challenging to master and frequently have unpredictable results. The close relation between eyes and nose demands an interdisciplinary approach. Ophthalmologists and rhinologists work together in the treatment of lacrimal drainage system to produce the best results. Interdisciplinary cooperation between ophthalmologists and rhinologists has advanced the present day treatment of lacrimal disorders. There is no single method for the lacrimal drainage surgery. There are different approaches for the surgical management of nasolacrimal disorders. Lacrimal drainage surgery can be a problem to many eye surgeons. The chapters on Anatomy, Osteology and Physiology of Lacrimation are dealt with in a very precise manner. Diagnostic tests are dealt with in detail and the various aspects of surgery are clearly described with the help of figures. The book has also dealt with recent concepts and advances including the use of laser in dacryocystorhinostomy.

Psychosomatic Medicine

M.D. Kurt D. Ackerman, Ph.D.; M.D. Andrea F. DiMartini
>Psychosomatic Medicine (PM) is a rapidly developing subspecialty of psychiatry focusing on psychiatric care of patients with other medical disorders. PM specialists diagnose and manage psychiatric symptoms in a variety of medical settings, optimize their patients’ medical care, and expand understanding regarding the role of psychological factors in health and disease. PM practitioners may function as psychiatric consultants in hospital-based wards, primary providers in med-psych units, or collaborative practitioners integrated with inpatient and outpatient medical teams. PM practitioners strive to stay current with the latest research and practice guidelines in a burgeoning field involving complex interactions and combinations of illnesses. To address these challenges, this book provides practical instruction from PM clinicians, educators and researchers, covering core clinical concepts routinely used in practice. Psychosomatic Medicine serves as an educational resource covering salient psychosomatic medicine topics for trainees and colleagues in psychiatry and other medical specialties. A history of PM contextualizes the field, and an overview of psychiatric consultation in the general medical setting emphasizes specifics of psychosomatic interviewing, physical examination, and collaboration with primary medical services. The remaining chapters cover the diagnosis and management of conditions commonly encountered by the psychosomatic psychiatrist: assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in a medical setting; assessment of decisional capacity; use of psychotropic medication in medically-compromised patients; management of delirium, cognitive and somatoform disorders; psychiatric manifestations of neurologic and other general medical conditions; emergent complications of psychiatric medication and illicit substance use; and special topics pertinent to PM. Finally, future directions in PM are explored in fascinating detail.

Redefining Recovery from Aphasia

Ph.D. Dalia Cahana-Amitay; M.D. Martin L. Albert, Ph.D.
>This book focuses on two fundamental aspects of brain-language relations: one concerns the neural organization of language in the healthy brain; the other challenges current approaches to treatment of aphasia and offers a new theory for recovery from aphasia. The essence of the book lies in the phrase neural multifunctionality: the constant and dynamic incorporation of non-linguistic functions into language models of the intact brain. The book makes the claim that language is a construction, created as we use it, and cannot be understood as being supported by neurally based linguistic networks only. Rather, language emerges from the constant and dynamic interaction among neural networks subserving cognitive, affective, and praxic functions with neural networks subserving lexical retrieval (naming), sentence processing (comprehension), and discourse (communication, conversation). In persons with stroke-induced aphasia, neural networks for executive system function, attention, memory, motor system function, visual system function, and emotion interact with neural networks for language to produce the aphasia profile and to influence recovery from aphasia. Consequently, neural multifunctionality in aphasia explains individual differences in the lesion-deficit model and continued recovery over time, redefining the concept of recovery from aphasia and offering new opportunities for treatment.
