"Né vers 1510 et mort en 1590, Ambroise Paré a traversé la quasi-totalité de ce XVIe siècle, haut en couleur et en furie, agité par les guerres extérieures entre le royaume de France et le Saint-Empire romain germanique, comme à l'intérieur par les guerres de religion. Simple barbier ne sachant pas le latin, devenu chirurgien du roi par le seul privilège de sa compétence, il a servi dans les armées de François 1er, de son fils Henri II, puis successivement des trois fils que celui-ci avait eus de Catherine de Médicis, François II, Charles IX et Henri III et il leur a survécu. Chirurgien de guerre, il a participé aux grandes batailles et aux sièges qui ont émaillé ce siècle. Il a senti le vent du boulet, il a vécu les horreurs de la guerre, il a franchi les lignes ennemies et il a été fait prisonnier. Il a opéré des milliers de soldats et de capitaines, des grands du royaume de France et d'ailleurs, et les rois eux-mêmes. Il a survécu à une morsure de vipère, à la peste, à la jalousie et au poison, comme au massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy. Ce livre relate les épisodes les plus épiques de sa vie aventureuse dans leur contexte historique."--Page 4 of cover.

"Approximately 65% of our population is overweight and 12% are morbidly obese. This is despite more than 25 years of attempted medical management. Clearly all current efforts have failed to control this enormous problem. Could it be that we have failed to recognize the cause of the disease and therefore have misdirected our efforts?" - Alfredo Fernandez, MD, FASMBS, Surgeon, Tampa, Florida Reducing obesity through bariatric surgery provides a sustainable weight loss regimen, because it restricts the size of the stomach and limits food intake. However, the surgery limits the amount of nutrients absorbed by the stomach and small intestine. This book provides a comprehensive, practical guide on pre- and post-nutrition considerations in bariatric patients. It describes surgeries including gastric bypass, lap band, and sleeve; nutrition protocols for surgery patients; pregnancy considerations- pre- and post-surgery; food consumption post-surgery; advancing healthy food intake after surgery; minimizing negative side effects; and recommendations to maintain healthy diet. This nutritional guide provides health care practitioners descriptions and answers to the many questions bariatric surgery patients need to know and ask in support group meetings and individual counseling sessions. The first chapter focuses on Selling Obesity and Food as a Cheap and Legal Drug, outlining how food advertising, portion size increases, and food frauds have contributed to the obesity crisis. New research into gut hormones, microbiome influence on obesity, firmicutes, and histamine are included, as well as pregnancy after bariatric surgery and lifestyle changes-eating, sleep, hydration, stress management-needed for success after surgery. Many health care practitioners will use the Post Op Discharge Diet stages of progression to explain how the patient needs to prepare for their liquid diet and overcome numerous issues like dumping syndrome, hypoglycemia, and alcohol and caffeine consumption. Diet plans for Ketogenic, Mediterranean DASH, Glycemic, and Low FODMAP are included within this book.

"What is a wound, how does it heal, and how can we prevent scarring? The concept of wound healing has puzzled humans even before the advent of modern medicine. In recent years, bioengineering has tackled the problems of cancer, tissue engineering and molecular manufacturing. The broad spectrum of technologies developed in these fields could potentially transform the wound care practice. However, entering the world of wound healing research is challenging — a broad spectrum of knowledge is required to understand wounds and improve healing. This book provides an essential introduction of the field of wound healing to bioengineers and scientists outside the field of medicine. Written by leading researchers from various fields, this book is a comprehensive primer that gives readers a holistic understanding of the field of wound biology, diagnostics and treatment technologies."--Publisher's website.

Each year, approximately 1.5 million people have their lives suddenly and irrevocably changed by traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries or stroke. Pat Gardner, a New York Banker, was driving to work when she was hit by another car. The accident left her apparently uninjured. The police who responded to the accident put her on a commuter train to the city, but Pat didn't know who she was or where she was going, and wandered around Penn Station for hours before finally asking for help. While current therapies can leave many people like Pat unable to function, or institutionalized indefinitely, this documentary explores a powerful alternative.

Faces from the Front examines the British response to the huge number of soldiers who incurred facial injuries during the First World War. These injuries were produced within a short time span, but (for the first time in a major conflict) did not necessarily lead to death due to developments in anaesthesia and improvements in the treatment of infection and blood loss. Casualties were evacuated back to England, where surgeons had an opportunity to develop their skills on a large patient caseload. Harold Gillies, an ambitious young surgeon, developed a new branch of surgery: plastic surgery of the face. In 1915, Gillies set up a dedicated ward for patients with facial injuries at the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot, Hampshire. Following the Battle of the Somme and the escalation in the number of casualties with facial injuries, steps were taken to establish a new hospital entirely focused on the treatment of facial injuries at Sidcup in South-East London. The Queen's Hospital treated more than 5,000 patients between its opening in August 1917 and the mid-1920s; its work was mainly funded by charitable donations. The book uncovers the history of this hospital by analysing a wide range of sources - including numerous photographs and paintings - which detail the experiences of patients and staff. A team of surgeons and other specialised staff were brought together at Sidcup who, like the hospital's patients, came from Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US. The book argues that the development and refinement of new surgical techniques was helped by a multi-disciplinary approach. Detailed patient records - combined with notes, photographs and paintings - were used to evaluate the efficacy of experimental procedures and to educate new surgeons. Treatment often involved multiple operations and took place over long periods of time, and considerable thought was given to the recovery and rehabilitation of patients. The Queen's Hospital had two important legacies: first, it played a pivotal role in the development of modern medical practice by paving the way for a new surgical specialty - plastic surgery - and by showcasing the benefits of specialist hospitals and multi-disciplinary services; second, the reconstruction of damaged faces had a major impact on the patients themselves. Drawing on a unique collection of personal and family accounts of the post-war lives of patients treated at Sidcup, the author explores surgical and aesthetic outcomes and the emotional impact of facial reconstruction.

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality in the western world and about half of these deaths are caused by coronary artery disease. One of the most commonly used interventions to treat arterial blockages is to deploy an arterial stent to keep the vessel open. Traditionally, some cardiovascular stents have been associated with serious side-effects, such as thrombosis. This book describes the fundamentals of cardiovascular stents, technologies to functionalize their surfaces and the market status of these important implants. The chapters provide specific focus on the production and evolution of cardiovascular stents, providing essential knowledge for researchers on advances in the field and knowledge of how cardiovascular stents are currently being "functionalized" in order to improve their biocompatibility and minimize negative outcomes in vivo.

For centuries, orthopaedic surgeons have been managing the pain, limp, and gait disturbance that develop in association with various traumas and diseases of the hip joint. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that has a good range of movement, but it is stable and rarely dislocates, even after high-impact trauma, and can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. However, despite its durability, it is not indestructible. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Overuse of muscles and tendons of the hip, for example, in athletes, leads to hip pain due to muscle strain or tendonitis. Other factors that can cause pain and lead to progressive arthritic changes include the abnormal anatomy a person is born with, conditions that develop during the growth and development of bones, and trauma as well as wear and tear due to ageing. The diagnosis and management of hip injuries have evolved substantially with advances in hip arthroscopy and diagnostic tools such as MRI and new, minimally invasive techniques. This book provides a detailed account of the hip joint's anatomy and biomechanics and serves as a practical guide for the diagnosis and treatment of hip diseases and injuries at all ages. The book covers recent trends in orthopaedic surgery of the hip joint, including the latest advances in revision total hip arthroplasty (THA), computer-assisted navigation for THA, resurfacing of the hip joint, neoplastic conditions around the hip, and indications, complications, and outcomes of hip arthroscopy. The chapters are written by experts who have contributed greatly to the understanding of problems of the hip joint. The book will be appreciated by undergraduate and postgraduate students, experienced hip surgeons, medical doctors, and practicing consultants in orthopaedics.
