"Hysterectomy for Benign Disease", by Mark D. Walters, MD and Matthew D. Barber, MD, MHS, is the ideal way to enhance your skills in this key area of gynecologic surgery. In this volume in "The Female Pelvic Surgery Video Atlas Series", edited by Mickey Karram, MD, hours of video footage, together with detailed discussions and illustrations, clarify how to most effectively perform a variety of hysterectomy operations and manage complications. Case-based videos take you step by step through: simple and complicated abdominal hysterectomy; simple and complicated vaginal hysterectomy; laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomy; vaginal oophorectomy; endometrial procedures that avoid hysterectomy; and, more. "Walters and Barber (obstetrics and gynecology and surgery, Cleveland Clinic) bring together a group of American obstetrics and gynecology surgeons and specialists who offer a video atlas for gynecologic surgeons and obstetrician-gynecologist trainees to hysterectomy procedures for benign diseases like uterine bleeding and fibroids, dysmenorrhea, and endometriosis. They address the surgical techniques for abdominal, vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic hysterectomy and hysterectomy alternatives, with case presentations and illustrations, as well as the historical evolution of uterine surgery and hysterectomy, important pelvic anatomy, changing trends and indications, the pros and cons of different routes of hysterectomy and oophorectomy, evidence-based discussion of preoperative and postoperative care, strategies for preventing and managing complications, and teaching and learning gynecologic surgery. The DVD contains case-based videos of procedures." - Book News, Inc.
