This book is unique in that it provides the reader with the most up-to-date terminology used to describe the human nervous system (central and peripheral) and the related sensory organs, i.e., the Terminologia Neuroanatomica (TNA), the official terminology of the IFAA (International Federation of Associations of Anatomists). The book provides a succinct but detailed review of the neuroanatomical structures of the human body and will greatly benefit not only various specialists such as (neuro)anatomists, neurologists and neuroscientists, but also students taking neuroanatomy and neuroscience courses. The book offers a high yield, combined presentation of neuroanatomical illustrations and text and provides the reader a 'one-stop source' for studying the intricacies of the human nervous system and its sensory organs. It includes an alphabetical list of official English terms and synonyms with the official Latin terms and synonyms from the TNA. With regard to the entries, the name of the item in standardized English is provided, followed by synonyms and the official TNA Latin term, Latin synonyms and eponyms, a short description and in many cases one or more illustrations. To facilitate the use of illustrations, certain entries such as the gyri or sulci of the cerebral cortex are presented together with extensive cross-references. Terms that form part of a certain structure (such as the amygdaloid body, the thalamus and the hypothalamus) are listed under the respective structure. Segments and branches of arteries are discussed under the main artery, for example the A1-A5 segments under the anterior cerebral artery. Most nerves can be found following their origin from the brachial, cervical and lumbosacral plexuses. However, the major nerves of the limbs are discussed separately, as are the cranial nerves. Nuclei can be found by their English name or under Nuclei by their eponym.

William Hamilton's "History of Medicine, Surgery and Anatomy", penned during the early nineteenth century, is an elegantly written discussion of the development of medicine and surgery from the dawn of humanity to the eighteenth century. The authors have rewritten this chronicle, replacing the British English of the period with modern American English, to suit a contemporary readership and thereby add a valuable resource to the arsenal of medical students, healthcare professionals, and other individuals who wish to study with enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity the history of medicine and surgery. The authors hope that this current work makes an obscure masterpiece readily accessible and comprehensible to the modern reader. The original 737-page text has been reduced to 161 pages and retitled "Hamilton's History of Medicine and Surgery". Hamilton's rhetorical flights and repetitions, characteristic of English non-fiction written during the early nineteenth century, have been removed to make the text easier to understand, and some of the more aggressively ethnocentric passages have been removed so as to provide a fairer account of the development of medicine and surgery. The authors have included some of Hamilton's original footnotes and incorporated additional footnotes in order to balance respect for the original text with the needs and interests of the modern reader. Contemporary publications to which the reader can refer in order to study in greater detail various topics noted in the text are cited in new footnotes. This abridged version delineates significant events pertaining to medicine and surgery prior to the nineteenth century and discusses the lives of historical figures and the paradigms in which they practised the art of healing in a concise manner. The original text lacks images, and the authors have incorporated 45 images of historical figures to enrich this revised version. "Hamilton's History of Medicine and Surgery" richly portrays the odysseys of medicine's champions and the social and religious milieus in which their efforts to alleviate illness took place, and presents to the reader an opportunity to comprehend more fully the evolution of the art of healing.

Dedicated guide to the lumbar plexus provides invaluable anatomical and surgical insights Thorough knowledge of the lumbar plexus and its branches is crucial to achieving positive patient outcomes, especially with newer surgical approaches. Many of the nerve branches are formed within the psoas major muscle and careful dissection is necessary to free them during surgery to prevent damage. Moreover, the iliac vessels are medial to some of the larger branches of the plexus, such as the femoral and obturator nerves. In the retroperitoneal space, the kidney and ureter are nearby. In addition, due to the overlying peritoneal cavity and its contents, accessing the lumbar plexus presents considerable challenges. Surgical Anatomy of the Lumbar Plexus is the only book on the market devoted to the lumbar plexus and its branches, focusing on anatomy and clinical applications, pathology, surgery, and imaging. Internationally known authors R. Shane Tubbs, Marios Loukas, Amgad Hanna, Rod Oskouian and a cadre of esteemed specialists provide unique insights, clinical pearls, knowledge based on thousands of spine surgeries, and a well-rounded multidisciplinary perspective. Key Highlights Nine separate chapters dedicated to impacted nerves: subcostal, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, lateral femoral cutaneous, genitofemoral, femoral, obturator, furcal, and accessory obturator History and overview of dermatomal anatomy of branches derived from the lumbar plexus Anesthetic blockade of the femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous, iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal, and genitofemoral nerves Tips for preventing complications and achieving positive outcomes for lateral transpsoas approaches to the lumbar spine and other procedures More than 100 novel illustrations provide clarity and understanding of a complex anatomical area as it relates to surgery involving the lumbar plexus and branches This one-of-a-kind resource provides crucial surgical and anatomical information on the lumbar plexus.

Despite international agreements to prohibit the use of chemical warfare agents, there is still significant concern over their use in different parts of the world. Moreover, the victims of earlier use continue to present a challenge to clinicians. Studies of the effects of mustard gas at the tissue, cell and molecular levels have thrown light on basic questions in biology, and these studies merit a comprehensive review. There are existing volumes on this topic and on related toxicological and ecotoxicological studies, but this proposed book is much more up to date and focuses specifically on the most widely-used chemical warfare agent (mustard gas, otherwise known as sulfur mustard). Also, the most relevant preceding volumes are outdated, not readily available, and broadly focused. By contrast, this title is more clearly focused on toxicological mechanisms, crucial as a basis for future developments in the field. The editors believe this book will provide a fully comprehensive view on mustard gas, with attention to recent developments, in a way other titles have not, filling a gap in literature on chemical warfare agents.

The book offers a high yield, combined presentation of neuroanatomical illustrations and text and provides the reader a 'one-stop source' for studying the intricacies of the human nervous system and its sensory organs. It includes an alphabetical list of official English terms and synonyms with the official Latin terms and synonyms from the TNA. With regard to the entries, the name of the item in standardized English is provided, followed by synonyms and the official TNA Latin term, Latin synonyms and eponyms, a short description and in many cases one or more illustrations. To facilitate the use of illustrations, certain entries such as the gyri or sulci of the cerebral cortex are presented together with extensive cross-references. Terms that form part of a certain structure (such as the amygdaloid body, the thalamus and the hypothalamus) are listed under the respective structure. Segments and branches of arteries are discussed under the main artery, for example the A1-A5 segments under the anterior cerebral artery. Most nerves can be found following their origin from the brachial, cervical and lumbosacral plexuses. However, the major nerves of the limbs are discussed separately, as are the cranial nerves. Nuclei can be found by their English name or under Nuclei by their eponym.
