An Introduction to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Second Edition

Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2015 An Introduction to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery encompasses the full range of oral and maxillofacial surgery. It also addresses the necessary core competencies for undergraduates and those pursuing basic specialist training. The second edition now includes international perspectives. In the UK, oral and maxillofacial surgery is a unique discipline—the ninth of ten currently recognized surgical specialties—and trainees usually start from a dental qualification before gaining a medical one. In contrast, in Germany practitioners often start from a medical base and then obtain a dental degree while in North America they start from a dental base and may or may not become dually qualified. The book’s initial chapters cater to all approaches of initial training and crucially bring them together in the specialist surgical sections. In chapters where the UK, US, and German perspectives are distinctly different, a section at the end has been added offering a specific perspective. However, where there is general consensus the international views have been integrated into the main body of text. At the end of each chapter, where appropriate, readers will find relevant references and recommendations for further reading. This book can also be considered a definitive and consistently reliable source of information for those following the UK’s Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum.

Salivary Diagnostics surveys one of the most exciting areas of research in oral biology. Regarded as the mirror of the body, saliva has immense potential to yield real clinical improvements in our ability to diagnose, and hence treat, oral and systemic conditions. The composition of saliva and other oral fluids reflects the tissue fluid levels of therapeutic, hormonal, and immunological molecules, as well as the presence of markers for systemic and oral disease.

Principles and Practice of Surgery is the surgical companion textbook to the international medical bestseller Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine. It is a comprehensive textbook for both the surgical student and trainee, guiding the reader through key core surgical topics which are encountered throughout an integrated medical curriculum as well as in subsequent clinical practice. Although sharing the same format and style as Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine, this text is complete in itself, thus enabling the student to appreciate both the medical and surgical implications of diseases encountered in surgical wards. A three-section textbook of surgical principles and regional clinical surgery. The textbook presents a comprehensive account of international surgical practice, taking into account variations in the disease patterns and management approaches throughout the world. Superbly presented with line drawings, high quality radiographic images and colour photographs. Presented in similar form to its sister textbook Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine. Full online and ebook version available as part of Student Consult. A new chapter on Evidence-based practice and professional development. An expanded chapter on Surgical preparation includes an account of the main issues surrounding day case surgery. A new International Advisory Board based in India, South Africa, South-east Asia and Europe has advised throughout on the structure and content of the book. Consequently the text has been updated to reflect changes in understanding, evidence and practice, and to keep the contents in line with undergraduate and postgraduate surgical curricula The evidence-based revision boxes that focus on major international guidelines have been thoroughly updated. The text on tropical conditions such as tropical pancreatitis, tuberculosis affecting the various organ systems and filarial lymphoedema has been expanded. Innovations useful in the practice of surgery in resource-poor environments have been included. The text gives a global emphasis on epidemiological and cultural issues such as problems associated with directed transfusion of blood products from first degree relatives, the issues of informed consent and patient autonomy. A comparison of SI and non-SI reference ranges for commonly used laboratory values has been added.

Non-melanoma Skin Cancer of the Head and Neck

Non-melanoma skin cancer is a global public health issue. With an ever-increasing, and ageing, world population coupled with increasing numbers of immunosuppressed individuals the number of patients continues to rise. The head and neck is overwhelmingly the most frequent location for the development of a non-melanoma skin cancer and as such challenges the clinician with its complex anatomy. The importance of maintaining the aesthetics of the face and the function of the anatomy cannot be overstated, yet ultimately it is always the aim of curing a patient with the minimum of morbidity that clinicians strive for. However, the spectrum of presentations and subsequent management varies widely, ranging from patients with the ubiquitous low-risk mid-face basal cell carcinoma to those diagnosed with relatively uncommon but potentially life-threatening high-risk squamous cell carcinomas (e.g. involving metastatic lymph nodes or with perineural invasion present) and Merkel cell carcinomas.

THE STUDY SMART SERIES, designed for students from junior high school through lifelong learning programs, teaches skills for research and note-taking, provides exercises to improve grammar, and reveals secrets for putting these skills together in great essays. Test taking is a skill apart from learning course material, a skill every student must acquire in order to survive. Test-Taking Strategies is the book for anyone who has ever dreaded an exam. Strategies for taking every kind of test are dealt with—objective tests (multiple choice, true/false, matching), essay tests, and oral exams. The authors also offer help for handling anxiety, explaining relaxation and desensitization techniques that help students control nervousness and keep it from detracting from performance. There are tips for managing time during the test, knowing when to guess, and for pulling answers out of your memory even when the question drew a blank at first glance. Essay tests and oral exams are particularly gruesome for most students, and until now there has been very little advice for handling such tests. Test-Taking Strategies includes plenty of advice for developing ideas while under pressure.

This book was written as a second opinion for young orthodontists. Chapter 1 discusses the effect of orthodontic treatment on facial aesthetics. It begins by showing how extraction treatments can have a positive effect on some faces and a negative effect on other faces. Chapter 2 discusses the 6 Keys to non extraction treatment. Chapters 4, 5, 6 and 7 use case reports to show how a wide variety of Class 1, Class II division 2, Class II division 1 and Class III malocclusions can be treated without mid arch extractions. Case reports are also used to illustrate how bimaxillary proclination malocclusions, congenitally missing teeth and impacted canine problems can be tackled. The emphasis again is on avoiding mid arch extractions followed by retraction and contraction mechanics.The book has over 400 pages and over 2000 colour photographs. Case reports of 60 patients are used.
