3D Virtual Treatment Planning of Orthognathic Surgery: A Step-by-Step Approach for Orthodontists and Surgeons

by Gwen Swennen

This color atlas and manual provides clinicians with systematic, standardized, but also individualized step-by-step guidance on 3D virtual diagnosis, treatment planning, and outcome assessment in patients undergoing orthognathic surgery for maxillofacial deformities. Drawing on 20 years of experience, the authors elucidate the clinical potential of the approach while also highlighting current pitfalls and limitations. The opening two chapters discuss the 3D imaging workflow and its integration into daily clinical routine and comprehensively describe cone-beam CT virtual diagnosis. The stepwise 3D virtual planning of orthognathic surgery and transfer of the 3D virtual treatment plan to the patient in the operating room are then thoroughly explained, and the unprecedented potential of 3D virtual evaluation of treatment outcome, documented. Finally, after provision of all this essential background information, the closing chapter illustrates the application of the 3D virtual approach in different types of maxillofacial deformity. Orthodontists and orthognathic and orthofacial surgeons will find 3D Virtual Treatment Planning of Orthognathic Surgery to be a superb guide and resource.

5-HT2A Receptors in the Central Nervous System (The Receptors #32)

by Giuseppe Di Giovanni Bruno P. Guiard

5-HT2A receptors are G-protein coupled receptors that are widely distributed throughout the brain, most notably on neuronal and glial cells. 5-HT2A receptors have been implicated in various central physiological functions including mood regulation, memory, sleep, nociception, eating, and reward behaviors, and they are also believed to control the cardiovascular system. This book provides a comprehensive overview of these receptors including sections on their properties and distribution, approaches for their study, their role in a number of brain functions and diseases, and their role as therapeutic targets. ​

50 Landmark Papers Every Spine Surgeon Should Know

by Md Alexander R. Vaccaro Jefferson R. Wilson Charles G. Fisher, MD, MHSc, FRCSC

There has been an exponential increase in the volume and quality of published research relating to spine care over the last several decades. Among thousands of articles, a small fraction has been shown to be truly "game changing," forcing the entire field to pause and take notice. These landmark studies may describe a new procedure or surgical approach, evaluate the relative effects of known treatments or techniques, introduce a new classification system, or provide new insights into natural history or disease prognosis. Such studies form the foundations of spine surgery today.This book will be a useful reference not only to the established spine surgeon, but also to neurosurgery and orthopedic residents, as well as to spine surgery fellows as they continue to fortify their knowledge surrounding spinal disorders. Further, this will no doubt serve as a useful evidence-based resource for trainees studying for professional examinations and perhaps most importantly challenge and inspire clinicians to produce high-quality impactful research.

50 Years after Deinstitutionalization: Mental Illness in Contemporary Communities (Advances in Medical Sociology #17)

by Brea L. Perry

Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, a revolution in mental health policy and practice known as deinstitutionalization occurred in Europe and the US. This movement was catalyzed by criticisms of psychiatric institutions and resulted in the release of thousands of people with serious mental illness from long-term care facilities into the community. It is acknowledged that these reforms held great promise, but have had numerous unintended negative consequences. Moreover, deinstitutionalization has strained the resources and reach of community-based mental health treatment systems, spilling into other institutions such as criminal justice and education. Volume 17 of Advances in Medical Sociology will examine deinstitutionalization’s legacies approximately 50 years after reintegration began, turning a critical lens toward contemporary problems and solutions related to mental illness in countries where reform occurred. This volume will highlight pressing issues around mental health treatment, social and health policy, and the lived experiences of people and families coping with mental illness that were or continue to be significantly influenced by deinstitutionalization reforms.

by Zang-Hee Cho

Recent advances in MRI, especially those in the area of ultra high field (UHF) MRI, have attracted significant attention in the field of brain imaging for neuroscience research, as well as for clinical applications. In 7.0 Tesla MRI Brain Atlas: In Vivo Atlas with Cryomacrotome Correlation, Zang-Hee Cho and his colleagues at the Neuroscience Research Institute, Gachon University of Medicine and Science set new standards in neuro-anatomy. This unprecedented atlas presents the future of MR imaging of the brain. Taken at 7.0 Tesla, the images are of a live subject with correlating cryomacrotome photographs. Exquisitely produced in an oversized format to allow careful examination of the brain in real scale, each image is precisely annotated and detailed. The images in the Atlas reveal a wealth of details of the main stem and midbrain structures that were once thought impossible to visualize in-vivo. Ground breaking and thought provoking, 7.0 Tesla MRI Brain Atlas is sure to provide answers and inspiration for further studies, and is a valuable resource for medical libraries, neuroradiologists and neuroscientists.
