The Science of Reconstructive Transplantation

by Gerald Brandacher

This volume presents a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in basic and translational research in the field of reconstructive transplantation and its potential therapeutic implications. Dr. Thomas E. Starzl and Dr. Raimund Margreiter, both pioneers in the field of transplantation, have written the foreword for the book.

The volume spans such topics as skin rejection, immune monitoring, stem cell-based immunomodulatory strategies, costimulatory blockade, tolerance induction, chronic rejection, ischemia reperfusion injury, nerve regeneration, cortical reintegration, and small and large animal models for reconstructive transplantation. The book is intended for biomedical researchers and basic scientists in the field of reconstructive transplantation, transplant immunology and regenerative medicine, as well as clinicians, surgeons and multidisciplinary specialists, who are practicing or interested in this novel and exciting field. Postgraduate fellows and students will also find it a valuable reference.

Transoral Laser Microsurgery of Benign and Malignant Lesions

by Manuel Bernal-Sprekelsen, Isabel Vilaseca

Edited by renowned experts, with contributions from leading

authorities, this book provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage

of TLM for the treatment of benign lesions and malignant tumors of the

oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx.

Key Features:

Accompanied by more than 300 exceptional illustrations Detailed descriptions of the surgical techniques for the different anatomical locations Tips and tricks for improving exposure Discussions of potential complications, their incidence, and prevention and management Results of oncological outcomes, survival rates, organ preservation rates, and complication rates for each anatomical subsite, and also comparable results with alternative treatment modalities Advice on postoperative management, rehabilitation,

and adjuvant therapy

This state-of-the-art book is an invaluable resource for surgeons because it covers not only the equipment and surgical aspects but, very importantly for decision making, it also provides site-specific evidence for the use of TLM in the treatment of benign disorders and malignant disease, even at advanced stages.

Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery

by L Dade Lunsford

This second edition is written by renowned experts

in neurosurgery, neurology, physics, and radiation oncology, many of whom are

pioneers of radiosurgery. Throughout more than 30 detailed chapters, the authors

share their vast expertise on this highly precise, minimally invasive form of

radiation therapy.

The first few chapters lay a foundation for understanding the

differentiations in types of SRS technology: Leksell Gamma Knife®, Novalis,

Linac and Proton Beam Radiosurgery, and Cyberknife, followed by an explanation

on the physics and radiobiology of SRS. The remaining chapters provide a

detailed discussion of all pathologies and disorders currently treated.


Radiosurgical procedures for a wide range of intracranial

conditions/diseases including arteriovenous malformations, meningiomas,

pituitary adenomas, trigeminal neuralgia, obsessive-compulsive disorder,

epilepsy, ocular disorders, pediatric brain tumors, and

gliomas. Important updates on skull base tumors, functional disorders,

and brain metastases. Evidence-based findings covering indications,

patient selection, benefits, limitations, outcomes, potential complications, and

alternative treatment modalities.

This updated reference tool is an invaluable, comprehensive guide to current

concepts in SRS. It is a must-have resource for neurosurgeons, radiation

oncologists, neuroradiologists, and medical physicists, from residents to

advanced clinicians.
