Operative approaches at once at the base of the mind, internal ear, and cranial nerves are inherently tender undertakings, and are extra advanced by means of the trouble of accomplishing easy accessibility to this constrained area. that includes large diagrams, illustrations, and images, this e-book comprehensively covers the entire crucial surgical methods to the bottom of the cranium. Written via pioneers operating at one of many world's prime facilities for complex neurosurgery, it in actual fact describes the stairs through which all the key anatomical constructions on the cranium base and internal ear should be accessed which will practice complicated surgical interventions.

Sobotta - Atlas der Anatomie des Menschen, Band 2: Innere Organe

Innere Organe

Der Sobotta in der 23. Auflage ist zielgenau auf die Bedürfnisse von Studenten der Vorklinik zugeschnitten. Er fokussiert auf den Lernstoff, der für Testate und das Physikum wichtig ist. Atlas und Webangebot konzentrieren sich von Anfang an auf prüfungsrelevantes Wissen. Das neue Lernkonzept macht Lernen - Verstehen - Trainieren entschieden einfacher: Bildbeschreibungen betonen, worauf es bei den Bildern ankommt. Zusätzlich zeigen klinische Beispiele anatomische info im Gesamtkontext. Alle Zeichnungen wurden optimiert, die Bildbeschriftungen auf das Wesentliche reduziert. Dazu ein Extraheft mit a hundred Muskeltabellen für systematisches Lernen.

Example text

The facial incision is then carried through the lateral limit of the orbicularis oris. Stopping the incision at this lateral border provides maximal exposure while preserving the frontal branches of the facial nerve. Elevation of the anterior facial flap (Figure 7) is performed at the level of the maxillary periosteum and the infraorbital nerve is transected and marked with 6–0 nylon for re-approximation (if not involved with the tumor) at the completion of the case. A coronal incision is then made and the temporalis muscle is exposed.

The frontal branches of the facial nerve are preserved and protected in a soft tissue and skin bridge overlying the zygomatic arch which course the frontal branches of the facial nerve. This tissue bridge protects the frontal branches of the facial nerve from transection or stretch injury. For maximal possible exposure to the infratemporal fossa and middle skull base, the facial incision can be extended across the zygomatic arch to connect to the coronal incision (Figure 8). The facial and temporal skin and subcutaneous flaps will then retract widely and be easily secured outside the direct operative field, as if opening a book for viewing.

Tumors in these areas include meningioma; squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, esthesioneuroblastoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma, and melanoma. Vascular neoplasms and invasive fungal sinus disease are examples of lesions other than neoplasms that may require anterior craniofacial resection in the course of their treatment. For large tumors that invade the orbit, maxillary sinus, or the palate, an extended craniofacial resection is performed with orbital exenteration or partial palatectomy.
