Atlas of breast reconstruction by Mario Rietjens( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breast reconstructive and oncoplastic surgery can reduce the sense of mutilation resulting from oncologic surgery and meets the need to provide breast cancer treatment that will not only eradicate the cancer but also re-establish the patient's quality of life. However, the difficulties inherent in preoperative planning and the intraoperative complexity of breast reconstruction and oncoplastic techniques represent major challenges for the breast surgeon. This atlas, intended for surgeons at every level, is an all-inclusive guide that documents surgical techniques step by step by means of a wealth of more than 1000 color photos, additional high-quality drawings and illustrations, and succinct accompanying text. Both common, established procedures and the most recently introduced techniques are covered, ensuring that readers will have at their disposal multiple approaches for breast repair, remodeling, and reconstruction. In addition to the comprehensive descriptions of techniques, preoperative planning is explained, indications and contraindications are identified, and the management of surgical complications is discussed. Tips, pitfalls, and key points are highlighted. The Atlas of Breast Reconstruction is an unprecedented tool that will increase and refine the arsenal at the oncoplastic surgeon's disposal in order to ensure that the best treatment can be offered to each individual patient

Il diritto di morire : la libertà del laico di fronte alla sofferenza by Umberto Veronesi( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in Italian and English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Umberto Veronesi affronta con grande rispetto ma senza falsi pudori un tema spinoso, sul quale la società è chiamata a confrontarsi. Delinea la posizione intorno a questo tema dei vari Stati europei, dove, con l'eccezione di Olanda e Belgio, l'eutanasia è equiparata all'omicidio. Illustra infine il problema della difficoltà di accedere alle cure palliative in Italia, dove esistono ostacoli legislativi all'uso farmacologico degli oppiacei. E pone una questione etica: è lecito impedire a un individuo di disporre della propria vita, anche quando è diventata invivibile?
Nessuno deve scegliere per noi by Umberto Veronesi( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in Italian and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Testamento biologico, testamento di vita, direttive anticipate: con questi termini si indica una dichiarazione con la quale ciascuno di noi, in piena libertà e consapevolezza, può esprimere la propria volontà circa le cure da ricevere nel caso perdesse la facoltà di decidere, a causa di una malattia o lesioni traumatiche irreversibili. Quali che siano i nostri sentimenti e le nostre convinzioni riguardo la morte e il significato del dolore, il problema resta lo stesso: di fronte alla capacità, che la medicina possiede, di allontanare il termine naturale della vita, chi fissa il limite degli interventi? La scienza, i medici, la legge? Gli autori di questo libro non hanno dubbi in proposito: nessuna autorità può decidere senza tenere conto della volontà del malato. E' giunto il momento di dare sicuri fondamenti giuridici al diritto inalienabile di scegliere come morire, come è già avvenuto in altri Paesi europei
