Atlas of Endoscopic Major Pulmonary Resections

Video-assisted significant pulmonary resections are rising in popularity, because it turns into seen that minimally invasive surgical procedure is helpful by way of diminished postoperative ache, shorted sanatorium remain, shorter restoration and higher compliance to adjuvant chemotherapy, with no compromising oncological rules.

Physiotherapie bei chronischen Atemwegs- und Lungenerkrankungen: Evidenzbasierte Praxis

Das Praxisbuch bietet eine Anleitung zur physiotherapeutischen Untersuchung und nicht medikamentösen Behandlung von chronischen Atemwegs- und Lungenerkrankungen sowie respiratorischen Problemen. Der Grundlagen-Teil erläutert verständlich die Anatomie und Biomechanik des Atembewegungsapparats, die Physiologie der Atmung, die Herzfunktion sowie die autonome Funktion bei chronischen Atemwegserkrankungen.

Morbid Obesity in Adolescents: Conservative Treatment and Surgical Approaches

Because the around the globe incidence of morbid weight problems between children keeps to upward push, contemporary years have noticeable a wide elevate within the functionality of adolescent bariatric surgical procedure. whereas surgical intervention usually turns into invaluable while conservative weight reduction treatments have failed, no criteria in regards to the post-operative routine and long term administration of adolescent sufferers were demonstrated.
