Apley’s System of Orthopaedics and Fractures – 9th Edition (2010)

Since the publication of the first edition in 1959, Apley’s System of Orthopaedics and Fractures has been an essential textbook for those seeking to understand the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system, its diseases and its response to trauma. The book’s success was initiated by the late Alan Apley’s skills as a teacher, and the care and forethought that he brought to the presentation of the content.

The current authors have developed and extended this foundation to produce a thoroughly modern textbook of orthopaedic surgery, bringing complementary expertise while retaining the book’s characteristic philosophy and approach. They are joined by a selection of expert contributors from around the world, who add material on a wide variety of subjects including radiology, open fractures, neuromuscular disorders, and inflammatory arthropathies.

This 9th edition echoes its predecessors in following Apley’s approach to the orthopaedic patient. As before, the work is divided ino three section: General Orthopaedics, Regional Orthopaedics, and Fractures and Joint Injuries. The material has been fully updated and revised, including the replacement of the majority of the photographs, giving this edition a modern and relevant feel. The illustrations are all provided in a downloadable form on the book’s accompanying website.

Apley’s System’s wide readership of practicing orthopaedic surgeons, postgraduate trainees and residents in orthopaedics and general surgery, A&E specialists and physiotherapists is evidence of the author’s ability to instruct and inspire. The book is a trully fitting introduction to modern-day orthopaedics.

This book presents 60 clinical cases illustrating essential concepts in internal medicine. Perfect for the clerkship and the USMLE Step 2, each case includes an extended discussion, definitions of key terms, clinical pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. This interactive learning system helps you to learn instead of memorize.
*60 internal medicine cases with complete discussions
*Clinical pearls highlight key points
*USMLE-style comprehension questions with each case
*Primer on how to approach the patient
*Proven learning system improves shelf exam scores
“Superior to other case file books.”
--Chang-Kun Choi, Medical Student, Midwestern University School of Medicine
“Using clinical scenarios not only makes the reading fun and interesting, but it is far more engaging than sitting down with a bulleted text and reviewing detail after detail. This is a much better way to learn clinical information. I have not read a book like this before, and I certainly have enjoyed it.”
–Eric Hossler, Medical Student, James H. Quillen College of Medicine
“I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to all third-year students… The book uses a clinical approach and does not lose sight of the pathophysiology behind the disease -- GREAT preparation for being on the wards! The subject matter is also deceptively detailed, with much more information than one normally finds in a text of case files. The reader can use this book as either a rigorous self-test or a read-through introduction to the subject. Once again - a GREAT text!”
–Elizabeth Johnston, Medical Student, Emory University


The Heart Latest Edition

Hurt's Heart
Hurst’s – The Heart – 12th Edition.chm
Valentin Fuster, Richard A. Walsh, Robert A. O’Rourke, Philip Poole-Wilson
It is 41 years since The Heart was published as the first multidisciplinary and comprehensive textbook on cardiovascular disease. This 12th edition of Hurst’s The Heart with 115 chapters written by preeminent and dedicated experts in each of the specialized areas has innovative features that separate it from prior editions.
The 12th edition includes authorship by many physicians from Europe, enabling multiple experts from several institutions and different countries to collaborate, thus providing a worldwide perspective on treatment of diseases such as hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathies, systemic hypertension, acute rheumatic fever, and neoplastic heart disease.
The previous chapter on hypertension has been divided into three more detailed chapters concerning epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnosis and treatment.
Chapters concerned with the human genome, cardiovascular practice guidelines, and evolving imaging technology for assessing coronary and non-coronary atherosclerotic disease and plaque characterization have been extensively revised. The most recent advances in pathophysiology and treatment for pulmonary hypertension and for the management of heart failure have been incorporated, and major advances including controversies in interventional cardiology are detailed.
Additional revised chapters focus on the diseases of the aorta, cardiovascular drug interactions, and surgical and non-surgical approaches to carotid arterial disease and peripheral vascular disease. In the chapter on treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, cardiovascular drug interactions have been updated to include the antiplatelet drugs, the statins, angiotensin 2 receptor blockers, and the new antianginal drug ranolazine. Chapter 105, Diseases of the Aorta, has been expanded and updated to include the medical treatment of acute aortic syndromes, and the chapter on cardiocerebral and cardiopulmonary resuscitation details the AHA modified approach to CPR.
The ACC/AHA Clinical Practice Guidelines and other alternative guidelines (such as those of the European Society of Cardiology) are more clearly elucidated in this edition than previously and are related to a specific chapter (Chapter 11) introducing this topic and defining several different classification systems.
The 12th edition of Hurst’s The Heart includes appropriate classic and recent references, many updated just prior to publication with some still in press at the time of publication.
The editors and associate editors are grateful to the excellent group of authors who participated in the 12th edition of Hurst’s The Heart for their extraordinary and timely contribution. The quick turnaround time12  for a textbook of this size and complexity is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our authors.


Mayo Clinic Cardiology: Concise Textbook

For busy clinicians, residents, and fellows continually challenged with a rapidly expanding body of cardiology information, this expertly conceived Third Edition of a best-selling textbook provides a contemporary succinct distillation of the current status of cardiovascular knowledge and disease. From specific diseases to particular signs, symptoms, and patient concerns, including pregnancy and heart disease and cardiac emergency, this easily readable textbook guides the reader through all the essential information required to skillfully approach professional board examinations and practice state-of-the-art clinical patient care.

Electrocardiography for the Family Physician: The Essentials

Family physicians are often the first, and sometimes the only, point of contact for many patients within the health care system. The standard 12-lead electrocardiogram is one of the most common tests obtained and interpreted by the family physician, with most of the physicians reading their own recordings and basing clinical decisions on their findings. It has been shown that family physicians can achieve proficiency in the interpretation of over 95 percent of all electrocardiogram findings seen in the primary care setting. Although computerized interpretation is widely available, it is considered unreliable in up to 20 percent of the cases, making competency and interpretation by family physicians an essential skill. This book provides the necessary skills for family physicians to use in interpreting electrocardiograms, both in their offices and in the emergency rooms of their hospitals. It also should prove of value to other primary care physicians, as well as medical students and residents of nearly all medical specialties. As the subtitle states, this book is about the essential elements involved in electrocardiographic interpretation. It is not all inclusive. However, it does cover the abnormalities most likely to be seen by family physicians in their everyday practice of medicine.


The Heart in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

This first volume represents the state-of-the-art in the field of cardiovascular disease and autoimmune rheumatic diseases. Systemic autoimmune diseases comprise a family of conditions that share common pathogenetic mechanisms as well as a multi-organ involvement including the heart. This volume has been subdivided into three parts. In the first part, the immune mechanisms involved in cardiac damage have been considered. The role of proinflammatory and regulatory cytokines in driving an autoimmune response to cardiac self-tissues has been analysed. Moreover, the prevalence, the clinical meaning and the hypothetical pathogenicity of a broad spectrum of organ and non-organ specific autoantibodies have been discussed in detail. In the second part of the volume, the role of humoral and innate immunity in promoting the development of atherosclerotic plaque has been extensively reviewed, along with the newly discovered anti-inflammatory properties of statins. These two parts of the volume deal with exciting aspects of this topic, suggesting a very close connection between heart diseases and immunology. Finally, in the third part, the cardiac manifestations observed in the major systemic autoimmune conditions have been comprehensively examined.
This book yields an impressive body of well ordered information, highlighting key references and summarising the experience of a selected panel of distinguished physician-scientists actively involved in the field of cardiovascular disease and systemic autoimmunity.
