This book discusses predominantly pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum, its variation and the treatment modalities available, including minimally invasive surgery. This will help to increase awareness of the available treatment options to doctors and healthcare workers but will also help trainee cardiac and thoracic surgeons. It is also an essential reference book for those already practicing. Chest wall deformities are a common occurrence, the commonest being pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum. The treatment for these is provided by very few centers and there is a decline in expertise especially in the UK due to rationing. When patients approach their GP they are mostly turned away and asked to live with it due to a lack of awareness and treatment modalities. The Editors have extensive experience in this field and will invite authors from other specialties, i.e. chest physicians, cardiologist, pediatric surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain management team, plastic surgeons and prosthetic departments, to contribute their views and solutions to the book.

This book describes the latest minimally invasive approaches in endodontics and explains the principles that guide them. The advantages and limitations of these approaches are critically analyzed with the intention of defining new endodontic gold standards. The trend toward the use of more conservative procedures within endodontics reflects the wider adoption of minimally invasive dentistry in general and is being fostered by the introduction of new materials, devices, instruments, and techniques as well as the use of magnification and advanced three-dimensional diagnostic imaging technologies. In this book, readers will find clear explanation of these advances and their impacts. Minimally invasive access to the root canal system is described, and detailed attention is devoted to the application of novel strategies in root canal instrumentation and disinfection, root canal filling, coronal restoration, retreatment, and endodontic surgery. Minimally invasive alternatives to complete endodontic treatment, such as vital pulp therapies, and to dental extraction and implant placement, including surgical extrusion, intentional replantation, and tooth autotransplantation, are also discussed. Minimally Invasive Approaches in Endodontic Practice will be of value for endodontists at all levels of experience.
This book is distinctive in that it focuses exclusively on current laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques for inguinal, primary and incisional abdominal wall, and hiatal hernias. Individual steps in diagnosis and treatment are described by experts in the field, but this clinical expertise is also integrated with the best available external evidence from systematic research as encapsulated in statements, recommendations, and guidelines. The reader will thus not only learn how to perform techniques systematically and reproducibly but also come to understand which of the procedures have been scientifically validated by studies, reviews, and meta-analyses and which have simply developed empirically. The descriptions of technique are supplemented by detailed guidance on such aspects as indications, anesthesia, aftercare and pain management, and the prevention and management of complications. Where appropriate, careful comparisons are made of competing repair options, including open techniques. In summary, this book will help practicing surgeons to standardize their operative technique so as to reflect current scientific knowledge and thereby improve the quality of laparoscopic/endoscopic hernia surgery.
