Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration by P. Dubruel,S. Van Vlierberghe Book Resume:

Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration provides a comprehensive review of currently available biomaterials and how they can be applied in bone regeneration. In recent decades, there has been a shift from the idea of using biomaterials as passive substitutes for damaged bones towards the concept of biomaterials as aids for the regeneration of a host's own bone tissue. This has generated an important field of research and a range of technological developments. Part one of this book discusses a wide range of materials, including calcium phosphate cements, hydrogels, biopolymers, synthetic polymers, and shape memory polymers. Part two then turns to the processing and surface modification of biomaterials, as well as how biomaterials can be evaluated both for their mechanical properties and for immunocompatibility with the host. Finally, part three covers a variety of cellular approaches, and production and delivery of biomaterials for bone regeneration. Chapters also consider the potential of electromagnetic and ultrasonic stimulation of biomaterials to aid in the regenerative process. Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration represents an important resource for academics, clinicians, and industry professionals working in the area of biomedical materials, providing them with both an overview of the current state-of-the-art, and an indication of potential future developments. Provides comprehensive coverage of novel materials, techniques, and applications of biomaterials for bone regeneration Provides vital information on the various types of materials used in bone regeneration Discusses processing, modification, and evaluation techniques of biomaterials, and looks at cellular approaches and stimulation of biomaterials for bone regeneration

Touching and Imagining by Jan Svankmajer Book Resume:

Jan Aevankmajer wrote this remarkable book on tactile art when he stopped directing films after censorship by the Czechoslovakian government and experimented intensively with tactile phenomena and the creative imagination. Illustrated with over 100 images, the book is organised around many reproductions of Aevankmajer's wondrous tactile art objects, tactile poems, experiments and games. It also includes dialogues with, and artworks by, other collaborating artists from the Group of Czech and Slovak Surrealists. Aevankmajer also gathers together as contributors such notable exponents of tactual experience as Edgar Allen Poe, Guillaume Apollinaire, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Meret Oppenheim, Ay-O, and F.T. Marinetti. Michael Havas, producer of some of Aevankmajer's films, says of the book: 'it is typically Aevankmajer: erudite and very consequential. Sometimes also very funny and erotic. Totally unique.'

Craniofacial Surgery by Daniel Marchac Book Resume:

After 20 years of intense and gradual improvements in the practice of craniofacial surgery, the International Society was born in Montreal (June 1983) and I. Munro was selected as general secretary. Its first meeting was held in La Napoule (Sep tember 1985) under the chairmanship of D. Marchac. In the meantime, the Euro pean group of the Society had held a session in Stockholm (June 1985) with B. Jo hanson acting as chairman. This now belongs to the history of our specialty, as does the course organized by E. Caronni in Rome (March 1982). These four landmarks in such a short time show the lively interest in craniofacial malformations and all their correction involves: - Syndrome delineation - Evaluation of the components of the malformations - Anatomy of the malformations - Imaging and measurement - Strategies and tactics in very different syndromes - Follow-up with reference to growth patterns in patients subjected to surgery or merely kept under observation - Implications of orbitocranial procedures for routine maxillofacial surgery - The interdisciplinary approach involving pediatricians, anesthesiologists, n- rosurgeons, ophthalmologists, orthodontists and speech specialists - The theories in vogue and those revised for some of the abnormalities All this could not be resolved in a 2-day meeting and probably will not be solved in the next generation.

Technique of Internal Fixation of Fractures by M. E. Müller,W. Bandi,H. R. Bloch,M. Allgöwer,H. Willenegger,A. Mumenthaler,R. Schneider,S. Steinemann,F. Straumann,B. G. Weber Book Resume:

It is to the great and lasting credit of LORENZ BOHLER and his school that they have in the last decade developed and demonstrated so thoroughly the techniques for the conservative management of fractures. Nevertheless there have always been many, including some from BOHLER'S school, who have found considerable place for surgical management, and with the significant progress in general surgery seen in postwar years, a new stimulus has been given to this part of traumatic surgery, especially since bone injuries have become more complex and frequent. The concept of internal fixation is not new. The serious criticisms that have been levelled at it retain today their basic significance. Progress in the fields of asepsis, corrosion-free metal implants, operative experience and postoperative care has diminished the dangers but has not relieved the surgeon of responsibility. The Association for the Study of the Problems of Internal Fixation (AO) has devoted itself over a number of years to the basic principles and best methods of open treatment of fractures by means of extended clinical and scientific studies in order to determine in each individual case the most promising line of treatment. At the same time a well designed and tested instrument set has been developed with precise instructions for the appropriate techniques. As a result, the new observations about primary bone healing which have emerged from the practice of rigid internal fixation are as interesting as the uses to which they can be put in allowing early mobilization.

The Field Book: Sports and Pastimes of the United Kingdom Compiled from the Best Authorities Ancient and Modern by William Hamilton Maxwell Book Resume:

An enthusiastic admirer of rural sports from boyhood, the Compiler sought with avidity after any book connected with his favourite recreations, from which either amusement or information might be obtained. The older authors, with the exception of a few pages of quaint and curious anecdote, were generally formed of barbarous theories, whose absurdities had long since caused them to be disregarded. The more modern, whether confined to a particular subject, or professing to be repertories of British Sports, were too frequently overloaded with hackneyed and unimportant matter, and merely reprints of treatises for years before the public, and differing from their predecessors in nothing but the name. But had there been nothing objectionable in the execution of sporting works, as they appeared during the last century, the total change in everything connected with the British field, would render them now of little value, but to point a contrast between the past and present systems. Without reverting to the times when jockeys rode in tie-wigs, and men would not venture to a trout-stream unless furnished with a velvet cap; when country gentlemen deserted their ladye-loves ere cock-crow, to see the sun rise above a fox-cover; when no pond-fish could resist a bait prepared with a dead-man’s finger; and a sucking-mastiff, stuffed with snails and judiciously roasted, was a sovereign remedy for a shoulder-slip;—without reverting to these times, what changes have not occurred within our own recollections? The mystic arcana of old professors have vanished before practical and scientific improvement, and the Sporting World has undergone a total revolution, and produced a new order of men and things. While, however, expressing these convictions, the Compiler would not undervalue many of the useful and intelligent writers and collectors who have preceded him. With allowances for their times, and the false theories then received, which modern science has exploded, where will more information be found than in the “Rural Sports,” “Thoughts on Hunting,” “Essay on Sporting,” and other contemporaneous works? It is of the copyists of these writers that the Compiler would complain, who, adopting everything, good and bad, from these originals, without a single addition of their own, have dosed the public ad nauseam, re-vending the same wares again and again, without even the redeeming grace of acknowledging the sources of their spoliations.

Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPO) by Reto Babst,Suthorn Bavonratanavech Book Resume:

This textbook offers a comprehensive view of all aspects of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO). The second expanded edition includes the expert knowledge of AO surgeons from all around the world. It not only provides basic concepts and the latest clinical and basic scientific research, but guides the interested surgeon through the crucial steps of MIPO application in the different anatomical regions. Enhanced by clear photographs, x-rays, MRls, CT scans, and detailed illustrations, the book comprises two sections: Section 1, Principles, covers the principles of MIPO surgery as well as education in MIPO. Section 2, Cases, encompasses all anatomical regions. For each region there is a comprehensive introduction covering general aspects of MIPO techniques regarding indications, preoperative planning, and positioning, before indirect and direct reduction and fixation techniques are presented. Case examples then allow the reader to follow each procedure in a thorough, step-by-step manner. Additional chapters on pediatric and fragility fractures, special indications, and implant removal conclude this second section. The main concept behind the MIPO technique is to deal with soft tissue and bone in a way that does not add additional trauma to the fracture site. The bone must be accessed through soft-tissue windows away from the fracture site. Direct reduction maneuvers, if needed, should be executed to leave only small footprints at the fracture area and reduce disturbance of fracture healing.
