<p>Both the number of pediatric surgeons using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and the number of operations involving MIS are increasing. This atlas of anatomy and operative techniques provides a thorough outline of the procedures commonly used in laparoscopic and thoracoscopic pediatric surgery. Step-by-step operative photographs are accompanied by explanatory text, and line diagrams are used to highlight the important anatomy as seen endoscopically. Alternative techniques, instruments, and steps are described when appropriate, and attention is drawn to highlights and pitfalls. While each chapter includes some basic background on the condition in question, the focus is very much on the operative procedures. This atlas will be of special benefit to those establishing a laparoscopic practice as well as to those in training who wish to embark on MIS. It will also serve as a supplementary atlas of anatomy and surgical technique for younger surgeons and medical students.  </p>

<p>This book presents the state of the art in genetic eye research in Asia and the Pacific. Though there has been an explosion of information on genetic eye research in western countries, more than sixty percent of the human genes involved in eye diseases in the Asian and Pacific population remain unknown. However, new efforts and a new awareness have sparked important discussions on the subject, and new plans are being implemented to discover the genes responsible for many eye diseases in the population. The book reviews the latest findings; its content ranges from genetic aspects of human migration to DNA sequence analysis, genome-wide association analysis, and disease phenotypes. The efforts of the Asian Eye Genetic Consortium (AEGC) are also discussed. The book’s editors have been instrumental in developing strategies for discovering the new Asian genes involved in many eye diseases. All chapters were written by leading researchers working on Asian eye genetics from the fields of Human Genetics, Ophthalmology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Sensory Sciences, and Clinical Research. <i>Advances in Vision Research, Volume I</i> will prove to be a major resource for all researchers, clinicians, clinical researchers, and allied eye health professionals with an interest in eye diseases among the Asian population.</p>

<div><b><i><span>What Doesn't Kill Us, </span></i></b><b><span>a<i> New York Times </i>bestseller, traces our evolutionary journey back to a time when survival depended on how well we adapted to the environment around us.</span></b><span> </span><span><br /><br /><span>Our ancestors crossed deserts, mountains, and oceans without even a whisper of what anyone today might consider modern technology. Those feats of endurance now seem impossible in an age where we take comfort for granted. But what if we could regain some of our lost evolutionary strength by simulating the environmental conditions of our </span></span><span>forebears? </span><span><br /><br /><span>Investigative journalist and anthropologist Scott Carney takes up the challenge to find out: Can we hack our bodies and use the environment to stimulate our inner biology? Helping him in his search for the answers is Dutch fitness guru Wim Hof, whose ability to control his body temperature in extreme cold has sparked a whirlwind of scientific study. Carney also enlists input from an Army scientist, a world-famous surfer, the founders of an obstacle course race movement, and ordinary people who have documented how they have cured autoimmune diseases, lost weight, and reversed diabetes. In the process, he chronicles his own transformational journey as he pushes his body and mind to the edge of endurance, a quest that culminates in a record-bending, 28-hour climb to the snowy peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro wearing nothing but a pair of running shorts and sneakers.</span><br /><br /><span>An ambitious blend of investigative reporting and participatory journalism, </span><i>What Doesn't Kill Us</i><span> explores the true connection between the mind and the body and reveals the science that allows us to push past our perceived limitations.</span></span><br /><span> </span></div>

Actualice sus conocimientos en enfermedades autoinmunes<br /> <br />Las miopatías inflamatorias idiopáticas constituyen un grupo de cuatro enfermedades (dermatomiositis, polimiositis, miositis con cuerpos de inclusión en su forma esporádica y miositis necrosante inmunomediada), que se caracterizan por presentar debilidad e inflamación muscular desde el punto de vista histológico. <br />Se trata de unas de las pocas enfermedades musculares potencialmente tratables, pero no se conoce bien su fisiopatología. Se desconocen los desencadenantes del proceso inflamatorio muscular, si bien se ha propuesto que pueden intervenir factores genéticos y ambientales regulando la respuesta inmune. En la actualidad, las prescripciones terapéuticas se basan todavía en pequeñas series de casos debido a la falta de ensayos clínicos aleatorizados. De ahí importancia que tienen estudios y ensayos clínicos como los de esta obra.<br />La obra aborda de modo integral las miopatías inflamatorias idiopáticas con el propósito de ofrecer a los especialistas la posibilidad de actualizar sus conocimientos en estas enfermedades. Con este fin, se revisan temas relevantes como la asociación miositis-cáncer, la participación pulmonar en las miositis, el valor de las pruebas de imagen en la diagnosis, los nuevos autoanticuerpos, la técnica y los errores de interpretación de las biopsias musculares o la aproximación terapéutica.<br /> <br />Séptimo título de la colección “Avances en enfermedades autoinmunes sistémicas”.<br />Monográfico de miopatías inflamatorias.<br />Estudios y ensayos clínicos realizados por doctores reconocidos.<br />Novedosas investigaciones y estrategias terapéuticas.
