Basic Clinical Radiobiology is a concise but comprehensive textbook setting out the essentials of the science and clinical application of radiobiology for those seeking accreditation in radiation oncology, clinical radiation physics, and radiation technology. Fully revised and updated to keep abreast of current developments in radiation biology and radiation oncology, this fifth edition continues to present in an interesting way the biological basis of radiation therapy, discussing the basic principles and significant developments that underlie the latest attempts to improve the radiotherapeutic management of cancer. This new edition is highly illustrated with attractive 2-colour presentation and now includes new chapters on stem cells, tissue response and the convergence of radiotherapy, radiobiology, and physics. It will be invaluable for FRCR (clinical oncology) and equivalent candidates, SpRs (and equivalent) in radiation oncology, practicing radiation oncologists and radiotherapists, as well as radiobiologists and radiotherapy physicists.
This text addresses vascular anomalies and the management of these diverse and clinically challenging set of conditions which have significant impact on patient function, quality of life and, in certain cases, survival. The text covers each category and type of vascular anomaly and the unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenges they pose. The chapters will also include fundamental scientific literature pertaining to each specific condition to help clinicians and clinical researchers better assess and manage vascular anomalies of the head and neck. Each vascular condition will be supported with medical photographs and radiographic images, summaries of diagnostic and therapeutic options, a list of syndromes and genetic mutations known to be associated with each anomaly, case studies, and clinical and research pearls from national and international leaders in the field. Management of Head and Neck Vascular Anomalies: Evidenced-based Assessment will be an invaluable resource for otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, general and general pediatric surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, dermatologists, interventional radiologists, residents and fellows in these fields, and researchers with interest in vascular anomalies of the head and neck.

Nerves and Nerve Injuries is a must-have for clinicians and researchers dealing with the Peripheral Nervous System and neuropathy. An indispensable work for anyone studying the nerves or treating patients with nerve injuries, these books will become the ‘go to’ resource in the field. The nerves are treated in a systematic manner, discussing details such as their anatomy (both macro- and microscopic), physiology, examination (physical and imaging), pathology, and clinical and surgical interventions. The authors contributing their expertise are international experts on the subject. The books cover topics from detailed nerve anatomy and embryology to cutting-edge knowledge related to treatment, disease and mathematical modeling of the nerves. Nerves and Nerve Injuries Volume 2 focuses on pain, treatment, injury, disease and future directions in the field. This volume also addresses new information regarding neural interfaces, stem cells, medical and surgical treatments, and medical legal issues following nerve injury. Most up-to-date comprehensive overview available on nerves and nerve injuries Comprehensive coverage of nerve injuries on bones, joints, muscles, and motor function; and offers an approach to the treatment of nerve injuries Edited work with chapters authored by leaders in the field around the globe – the broadest, most expert coverage available Covers surgical exposure of the nerves including technical aspects of nerve repair and medicinal treatment of nerve injuries Discusses the future of our understanding of the nerves including axonal modeling, synthetic interfaces and brain changes following nerve injury

Schwindel ist nach Kopfschmerz das zweithäufigste Leitsymptom. Die meisten Schwindelsyndrome lassen sich nach sorgfältiger Anamnese diagnostisch korrekt einordnen und haben meist eine gutartige Ursache, einen günstigen Verlauf und lassen sich erfolgreich therapieren. Schwindel ist keine Krankheitseinheit, sondern ein unspezifisches Syndrom verschiedener Erkrankungen unterschiedlicher Ätiologien. Deshalb wendet sich dieses klinisch orientierte Buch an Ärzte der verschiedenen Fachrichtungen, die Patienten mit Schwindel versorgen, und an Studenten. Im allgemeinen Teil werden die Funktionsweisen des vestibulären Systems und seine Störungen, die pathophysiologischen Mechanismen, die diagnostischen Merkmale, der Untersuchungsgang, die apparative Diagnostik und die therapeutischen Prinzipien beschrieben. Die Darstellung der wichtigsten Krankheitsbilder erfolgt nach einem einheitlichen Schema: Anamnese, Klinik und Verlauf, Pathophysiologie und therapeutische Prinzipien, pragmatische Therapie, Wirksamkeit sowie Differenzialdiagnose und klinische Probleme. Besonderer Wert wird auf die Therapiemöglichkeiten medikamentös, physikalisch, operativ oder psychotherapeutisch gelegt. Die begleitende DVD enthält typische Anamnesen und Untersuchungsbefunde zu den einzelnen Krankheitsbildern.
