Artificial hearts are seductive devices. Their promissory nature as a cure for heart failure aligned neatly with the twentieth-century American medical community's view of the body as an entity of replacement parts. In Artificial Hearts, Shelley McKellar traces the controversial history of this imperfect technology beginning in the 1950s and leading up to the present day. McKellar profiles generations of researchers and devices as she traces the heart's development and clinical use. She situates the events of Dr. Michael DeBakey and Dr. Denton Cooley's professional fall-out after the first artificial heart implant case in 1969, as well as the 1982-83 Jarvik-7 heart implant case of Barney Clark, within a larger historical trajectory. She explores how some individuals-like former US Vice President Dick Cheney-affected the public profile of this technology by choosing to be implanted with artificial hearts. Finally, she explains the varied physical experiences, both negative and positive, of numerous artificial heart recipients. McKellar argues that desirability-rather than the feasibility or practicality of artificial hearts-drove the invention of the device. Technical challenges and unsettling clinical experiences produced an ambivalence toward its continued development by many researchers, clinicians, politicians, bioethicists, and the public. But the potential and promise of the artificial heart offset this ambivalence, influencing how success was characterized and by whom. Packed with larger-than-life characters-from dedicated and ardent scientists to feuding Texas surgeons and brave patients-this book is a fascinating case study that speaks to questions of expectations, limitations, and uncertainty in a high-technology medical world.

This invaluable compendium highlights the challenges of perioperative process in hospitals today. It delves into the development of a multi-agent robotic system where a dirty-side robot that sorts instruments returned from a surgical room into different containers for easy scrubbing, a Traybot that navigates the environment and transports the instrument containers to different stations, a clean-side robot that picks up instruments and places them in surgical kits, and an orchestration software architecture that manages the cooperation between different robots. The book discusses the technical details of all the components, from system architecture to the details of the end-effector design. Readers will gain significant knowledge on how such a system was put together.

"About 85% of spine deformities (scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis) are idiopathic, but some forms are caused by severe neuromuscular disorder such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, Friedreich's ataxia, and spinal cord tumors and lesions. These are more difficult conditions, since curve progression is much greater than in idiopathic conditions and bracing does not usually prevent progression of the spinal curvature. Smaller curvatures in nonambulatory patients can sometimes be treated by wheelchair modifications, but most patients will undergo surgery. These surgeries are complex because of the severity of the condition itself and because of the various other medical conditions affecting these patients. There is currently no book on the topic, and chapters in spine deformity books give the topic scant coverage. Samdani et al are the world's leader in this field, and they will present the definitive book on the topic, featuring foundational chapters, coverage of the specific neuromuscular disorders, surgical techniques, and postop considerations and complications, and the will be accompanied by surgical videos. The Authors are members of the prestigious Harms Study Group, a worldwide association of spine surgeons performing multi-center research studies on scoliosis"--Provided by publisher.
