About this book

 

Surgery of the Adrenal Glands is a comprehensive  medical textbook that includes everything that a surgeon, but for all purposes any physicain or medical student, may want to find on adrenal surgery in a friendly, up to date, evidence based manner. 30 of the most renowned names in the field of adrenal surgery from the US and Europe draw on their experience in exploring diagnosis, indications for surgery, choice of operation and  operative techniques, and surgical outcomes for every major adrenal condition. Over 200 exquisite illustrations, ranging from intraoperative photographs, line drawings, diagnostic images, pathology slides, tables and graphs are available to make each case discussed comprehensible and easy to follow.  Traditional and novel therapeutic recommendations are introduced and the latest developments in minimal-access operative techniques are discussed and reviewed. Finally, the best approaches in dealing with challenging conditions such as adrenal incidentaloma, subclinical Cushing's syndrom, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, Mineralcorticoid Express Syndrome, Extraadrenal and Malignant Pheochromocytoma are discussed.  

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Plenty of thought has been put into the detail of this work … . there is a consistency throughout the book and the chapters are well referenced. The operative technique section is particularly well illustrated … . The chapter on adrenal sparing surgery is both fascinating and thought provoking. … This is a valuable reference book for endocrinologists, radiologists and endocrine surgeons. It is essential reading for the increasing number of surgeons who are gifted in laparoscopic surgery but ignorant about the subject of endocrine surgery … ." (D. Scott-Coombes, The Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Edinburgh and Ireland, Vol. 3 (6), 2005)

"An up to date, quite practical but yet comprehensive textbook focused on the field … . From its preface to subject index, this book is really exciting. In my opinion, the very first author’s merit was to approach the problematics of adrenal diseases in a very practical way; Every topic is addressed … by contributors with a well-established experience in the field. … Dimitrios Linos and Jon van Heerden stroke a decisive blow with their state-of-the-art textbook on Adrenal surgery. … endeavour that was well worth their effort." (Etienne Hamoir, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 105 (4), 2005)

"The various syndromes associated with the adrenal gland are described in great detail and this book brings together a wealth of experience of some extremely rare conditions. There are excellent up-to-date chapters … . The illustrations are clear and the text valuable. All in all, this is an excellent monograph on the surgery of the adrenal glands and is to be recommended to all who have an interest in the management of the rare conditions associated with them." (Richard Collins, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 88, 2006)
