This book addresses the increasing need for a text related to endoscopic-based middle ear surgery, offering the reader a step-by-step surgical dissector that focuses on high quality images, illustrations, and videos. Written by well-respected physicians at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, who have spent years researching endoscopic middle ear surgery, this book discusses the important benefits of an endoscope compared to a microscope. Additionally, the use of high quality medical illustrations and high-resolution images of endoscopic middle ear surgery, otologists, otolaryngologists, and neurologists alike will acquire basic endoscopic ear surgery techniques. __ _Endoscope-based otologic surgery is a fast growing field and the use of rigid endoscopes to perform ear surgery, rather than just to visualize the middle ear, is increasing and primed to expand as refined instrumentation and operative approaches become available.
This extensively updated edition provides a comprehensive review of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common genetic disorder of the heart characterized by dysfunctional contractility at the sarcomere level. The disease produces abnormal and oftentimes focal hypertrophy on a macroscopic level that further impairs cardiac performance and may lead to life-threatening arrhythmias. This edition provides a practical approach, establishing evidence-based best practice for all scenarios. Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy provides readers with key points and critical clinical pearls to assist them in managing patients. New chapters have been included on managing hypertension, sleep apnea, coronary artery disease, structural and congenital disease, nutrition and pharmacotherapies. All aspects of treatment are covered - medications, pacemakers and defibrillators, and invasive septal reduction therapy (both surgical myectomy and alcohol septal ablation) - in addition to genetics, family screening, lifestyle concerns, and athletic screening. The practical approach has been reinforced with an expanded emphasis on creating a Center of Excellence, how to facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach, and on case-based reviews and discussions, with each chapter ending with a post-test. This book is an essential text for cardiology professionals from trainee to board-certified physician, and includes important information for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, cardiac imagers, critical care physicians, sports medicine physicians, genetic counsellors, and electrophysiologists.

Approximately 300 000 mentally retarded or psychologically disordered children, men and women were killed by German doctors as ´life unworthy of living´ during the time of National Socialism, mainly in WW II. In post-war German medicine, besides the practice of forced mass sterilization and medical experimentation in context of the holocaust the euthanasia crimes are one of the most precarious aspects of the past. In case of dealing with Nazi euthanasia: which historical settings for representation can be identified and what meanings were given to these events in the course of remembrance? This study documents and analyses the variety of representations of national socialist euthanasia, using examples of several groups of German physicians after WW II until the first decade of 21st century. What can be found is a process of coming to terms with the past shifting from complete rejection up to at least partial internalization of the destabilizing contents of the past into the self-image and the ´collective memory´ of the focused group of physicians. This book intends to contribute to the current research on memory cultures especially to cultural studies about German society dealing with the National Socialism and Holocaust.
