Four annual volumes updating content across all categories ensure that you always have access to state-of-the-art synthetic methodology.
The field of N-heterocyclic carbenes, whether in transition-metal catalysis or organocatalysis, is rapidly evolving towards applications, but is also still very active on the catalyst development front. Significant advances have been made over the past two decades and the development of these reactions has dramatically improved the efficiency of organic synthesis. N-Heterocyclic carbene based catalysts are now widely applied in the area of synthesis of both natural products and therapeutic agents. Science of Synthesis: N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis presents the most commonly used and significant metal- or non-metal-catalyzed reactions for modern organic synthesis. The basic principles and current state-of-the-art of the methods are covered. Scope, limitations, and mechanism of these reactions are discussed and key experimental procedures are included. Typical examples of target synthesis are often provided to show the utility and inspire further applications.
Endoscopic technology has advanced to the point where practitioners can now access, visualize, and treat spine pathologies previously only accessible through open surgical approaches. Endoscopic Spine Surgery 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive background on endoscopic spine surgery and covers an unparalleled number of minimally invasive spine procedures that have revolutionized the spine treatment paradigm. Readers will greatly benefit from many years of expertise and wisdom shared by master spine surgeons Daniel Kim, Gun Choi, Sang-Ho Lee, and Richard Fessler, and their expert contributors. Due to the narrow endoscopic view, subtle microanatomical differences in the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions are not always easy to visually discern. To address this challenge, the book contains detailed procedural descriptions and images mirroring endoscopic views spine surgeons encounter in the OR. Organized anatomically, 53 chapters guide readers systematically through lumbar, thoracic, cervical, and craniocervical junction procedures for pathologies ranging from low back pain and deformities to tumors, lesions, infections, and trauma. Key Features More than 1000 high quality images including color procedural photographs and medical illustrations provide in-depth visual understanding.Spinal pathologies and procedures delineated in 75 videos accessible via the Media Center – from case studies to step-by-step technique tutorials.Covers the full spectrum of spine endoscopy including percutaneous approaches, microdiscectomy, laminectomy, discectomy foraminotomy, hemilaminectomy, thoracic decompressions, fusion, fixation, and thoracoscopic procedures.The use of state-of-the-art technology such as ultrasonic bone dissectors, endoscopic radiofrequency denervation, the video telescope operating monitor (VITOM), minimally invasive tubular retractors, and 3D stereo-tubular endoscopic systems.Neurosurgical and orthopaedic residents, spine fellows, and seasoned spine surgeons will all greatly benefit from the significant knowledge and insights revealed in this remarkable multimedia resource. This book may also be of interest to neurosurgical and orthopaedic nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, and medical device professionals.

In the last two decades, spine instrumentation and surgery have undergone many improvements. The second edition benefits from contributions by renowned orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons who helped create and refine the systems described in the book, and devoted their careers to educating next generations of spine surgeons. Advancements in instrumentation – plates, cages, rods, screws, disc replacements, spacers, and fusion devices – have led to improved outcomes for patients. The spinal device field has grown exponentially, and surgeons are faced with an increasingly diverse choice of instrumentation options. While the first edition categorized available systems, the new edition is focused on helping clinicians avoid complications and quickly recognize and manage complications when they do occur. Key Features A concise yet comprehensive reference that educates clinicians on the causes, recognition, and avoidance of instrumentation complicationsOrganized by anatomical region and condition, the visualization of relevant anatomical landmarks is discussed in context with safe use of spinal instrumentationNow four-color, with more than 230 new and original illustrationsEasy-to-digest text helps translate classroom knowledge into clinical applicationThis up-to-date book will help orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons learn how to utilize spinal devices more efficaciously and safely. The text is also an excellent reference for radiologists, spine fellows and residents, and physician extenders who are interested in attaining knowledge and experience in spinal instrumentation.
The treatment of skin cancer has become an increasingly multispecialty practice. Ongoing surgical and postsurgical advances and emergent factors that predispose patients to these tumors have changed the treatment paradigm. Having a keen understanding of diagnostic, surgical, and nonsurgical treatment options is key to identifying, treating, or referring patients with potential cutaneous malignancies. While Brian R. Gastman's Cutaneous Malignancies: A Surgical Perspective is the first of its kind to emphasize surgical management of skin cancer, several sections are devoted to systemic nonsurgical therapies affecting patient care and surgical intervention. Topics encompassed include prevention, diagnosis, medication management, appropriate margin size, reconstruction methods, and the importance of stellar dermatopathology. Key Highlights The role of Mohs micrographic surgery and radiation in skin cancer treatmentTreatment approaches for the two most common forms of skin cancer respectively, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinomaSurgical treatment of cutaneous malignant melanoma and other high-risk malignanciesClinical insights on completion lymphadenectomy and sentinel node biopsy for melanoma, two topics rarely addressed in context with skin cancerDiagnosis and treatment of rare malignancies including Merkel cell carcinoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, cutaneous angiosarcoma, and cutaneous leiomyosarcomaMore than 400 high-quality illustrations further delineate surgical modalitiesEdited by an esteemed dual board certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist, this definitive book is the most complete guide to surgical management of skin cancer. It is essential reading for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, otolaryngologists, and all clinicians who treat or refer patients with suspected skin cancer.
