Hepatic and Biliary Diseases: Anesthesiologists' Perspective


Beginning with an introduction to the basic anatomy of the liver and biliary tract, this book discusses the peri-operative management of different disorders and conditions that may affect the liver and ultimately lead to hepatic failure, for example, alcoholic liver disease, hepatorenal syndrome, endocrine dysfunction and liver disease in pregnancy. Rare hepatobiliary diseases with significant morbidity are discussed, as are future prospects such as a liver support system with the potential to revolutionise the management of end stage liver disease.

Anesthesia and Neurotoxicity



This book, written by leading Japanese experts in the field, describes the latest findings on the neurotoxicity of anesthetics for the developing brain, postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction.
It describes the risk factors for postoperative cognitive dysfunction in elderly surgical patients. Since the number of elderly patients undergoing surgery and anesthesia continues to increase, it is important to improve our understanding of the risks and mechanisms of postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction, potential ways to prevent or alleviate them and the public health implications.
Recently, it has been shown that using anesthetics on the developing brain causes apoptotic neurodegeneration and persistent learning/memory deficits later in life. Anesthesiologists need more information on this mechanism in the human brain.
The negative effects of anesthesia and surgery on the nervous system have attracted attention lately; this book provides physicians, researchers, and postdocs with invaluable information on this topic.
