This encyclopedic reference book on the treatment of intracranial aneurysms offers a case-based approach to the subject that has the benefit of fully reflecting the highly individual technical and clinical challenges encountered in aneurysm patients. The book is structured by aneurysm location, ensuring ease of use. Readers will find solutions for most clinical situations that they may encounter. Different treatment strategies are described, highlighting their respective pros and cons in particular circumstances. The coverage encompasses both basic techniques, such as coil occlusion and parent vessel occlusion, and the latest developments, including extra- and intrasaccular flow diversion, intrasaccular flow disruption, bifurcation stenting, and hybrid procedures combining microsurgical and endovascular elements. Potential procedural complications are identified, and bail-out strategies to anticipate, avoid, and solve major issues are described. The authors are all respected experts in the field, and the book will be of value to vascular and endovascular neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists and neurologists, stroke neurologists, and other practitioners at all levels of experience.

This case book is the ideal text for Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs), as well as student ODPs and nurses preparing to work in perioperative care. Delivering individualised, holistic and evidence-based care can be challenging in the perioperative setting, requiring the practitioner to apply specialist clinical knowledge to each individual patient. This text presents 20 interactive case studies that will support the reader in assimilating a wide range of professional knowledge in order to develop a comprehensive plan of care for patients they encounter. The practical cases: • Demonstrate how care will vary depending on the patient’s physiological assessment and their personal, social, cultural and emotional needs • Will consolidate the reader’s learning around pathophysiology, pharmacology, assessment skills and clinical skills • Include common clinical procedures as well as those that are more complex and require a deeper analysis of the evidence in order to improve patient care. • Use “Stop and Think” boxes to encourage readers to reflect on key points within the case study, in order to develop their own knowledge and assist in their CPD This text will support all learners, at both pre- and post-registration level as they develop their knowledge of perioperative care. Its goal is to help the practitioner deliver excellent and confident care in perioperative practice and in other healthcare settings. “Although clearly targeted at the student Operating Department Practitioner, Abbott and Wordsworth have produced a learning resource that any learner in the perioperative environment will find both informative and a useful learning aid. The editors have set out the twenty patient case studies in a sequence that allows the student to work through them as their course and competence progresses, although students can dip into the case studies in any order that supports their current clinical placement. The section introducing perioperative care is essential reading for any perioperative practitioner, with an up-to-date introduction to the latest concepts of teamwork and human factors in patient safety. Coupled with the patient-centred focus of the case studies this provides any reader with an understanding of the changing approach to patient care in the perioperative environment.” Bill Kilvington, President, College of Operating Department Practitioners, UK “I have read this book several times and found that the chapter contents are excellent. This book will be useful for ODPs and theatre nurses, it will enhance their knowledge and skills and may also enhance their abilities to work in operating departments and care well for patients. The book covers preoperative care, intraoperative care and postoperative care which is essential for all practitioners working in operating departments. The content of this book is very informative and will be of great use to both students and qualified practitioners. I find it very impressive and I envisage it to be very useful to all theatre practitioners!” Paul Wicker, formerly Head of Perioperative Studies, Edge Hill University, UK and Visiting Professor, Nanjing University, China.

Acquired brain injury (ABI) describes damage to the brain that occurs after birth, caused by traumatic injury such as an accident or fall, or by non-traumatic cause such as substance abuse, stroke, or disease. Today’s medical techniques are improving the survival rate for people of all ages diagnosed with ABI, and current trends in rehabilitation are supporting these individuals returning to live, attend school, and work in their communities. Yet strategies on the best way of providing community participation vary among rehabilitation experts. Because many of survivors of ABI do not and will not return to the status quo of their former lives it is important to examine what constitutes best and promisingpractices in this area. This casebook is the world’s first compilation of evidence-informed programs that foster community participation for people of all ages with brain injury. With thisreview, we elicited and carefully examined existing programmatic efforts that combine emphasis on the individual, the social, and the service systems in a way that captures community participation as a complex process of interactive change in the person-environment relationship – programs that do not divorce ABI survivors from their contexts, and where participation efforts facilitate positive change in the social and political context. We considered community-based programs to be programs where individuals and families actively participate in their own therapy (rehabilitation) and take responsibility for their own health or that of a family/community member. Each case study chapter depicts a program chosen on its extraordinary merits to provide community participation to its clients. The chapters are cowritten by the stakeholder and a researcher, giving a complete perspective of how the program was established and continues to operate, and provides evidence of excellence.

This clinical casebook is comprised of surgical cases involving the most important cardiovascular diseases in a concise, easy-to-read format (5x8 in trim size, like other titles in this burgeoning, informal product line in the Springer clinical medicine program). Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as questions and answers (between 8 and 10) about relevant aspects related to the diagnosis and treatment of the addressed disease. The Q&A section will broaden discussion and increase the title's pedagogical value. The casebook features 40 surgical cases in the following thematic areas: Aortic Disease, Arrhythmias, Cardiac Tumors, Coronary Insufficiency, Congenital Heart Disease, Endovascular Therapies, Heart Failure, Heart Transplantation, Mechanical Circulatory Support, Pericardial Disease, Pulmonary Embolism and Valvular Heart Disease. This book will be prepared by the Brazilian Department for Academic Leagues of Cardiovascular Surgery, within the Brazilian Society of Cardiovascular Surgery (BSCVS). This department is the section within BSCVS that consists of the academic leagues of cardiovascular surgery from each university throughout the country. In Brazil, medical academic leagues are organizations that gathers students, interns and residents to discuss a certain topic and promote research and teaching-oriented extra-class activities, supervised by a group of professors. Thus trainees will have involvement in writing the chapters and the senior professor supervisors will edit and finalize the work. Basically, each chapter is written by an intern or resident and, ultimately, his/her supervisor. As the books volume editors, doctors Almeida and Jatene will have final responsibility for the cases and overall manuscript.

Like its wildly popular predecessors Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities and Hoard of Mathematical Treasures, Professor Stewart's brand-new book is a miscellany of over 150 mathematical curios and conundrums, packed with trademark humour and numerous illustrations.In addition to the fascinating formulae and thrilling theorems familiar to Professor Stewart's fans, the Casebook follows the adventures of the not-so-great detective Hemlock Soames and his sidekick Dr John Watsup (immortalised in the phrase 'Watsup, Doc?'). By a remarkable coincidence they live at 222B Baker Street, just across the road from their more illustrious neighbour who, for reasons known only to Dr Watsup, is never mentioned by name. A typical item is 'The Case of the Face-Down Aces', a mathematical magic trick of quite devilish cunning... Ranging from one-liners to four-page investigations from the frontiers of mathematical research, the Casebook reveals Professor Stewart at his challenging and entertaining best.

Comparatively little is known about the risk of sudden death associated with exercise in young competitive athletes, and whether the benefits of sports activity outweigh the hazards of exercise-related fatal events is a clinical dilemma. This is only a small part of the story, however, as there are considerable effects of exercise whether it be at a competitive level or on a ‘leisure’ level on patients of all ages. This in itself is of massive importance to the cardiac patient population as exercise is a key component of effective recovery and recommended as central in the prevention of much cardiac disease.
