    Summary: "Written by leading APRN neonatal educators and clinicians, this authoritative study guide delivers all the tools neonatal nurse practitioners need to pass the National Certification Corporation (NCC) certification exam and the Continuing Competency Assessment (CCA). User friendly and concise, this review's content mirrors that of the actual exam and is structured in accordance with the most updated test plan blueprint. This resource's numerous exam-style questions and answers with rationales included in each chapter help readers uncover gaps in their knowledge. This review synthesizes the knowledge required to pass the exam, saving the reader time and effort by omitting extraneous material. In addition to spotlighting essential content throughout the text, recommended references provide the reader with the option to seek out additional information as needed. Additional benefits include important information about the exam along with savvy study and test-taking tips"--Publisher's description.

    Summary: This book addresses the severe knowledge deficit in peripheral nerve amongst neurosurgeons, however this topic represents an integral part of the oral board examination. The book employs a case based approach with the highest-yield scenarios for oral boards, primarily focusing on nerve entrapments, trauma and tumors. Thanks to its question and answer format, the reader is encouraged to think about the cases and questions as if taking the real exam before they check the answers. The work also includes common pitfalls, a section on nerve examinations including video recordings, and a section on important clinical findings that should be diagnosed from the picture. The book not only serves neurosurgeons, but also plastic surgeons, orthopedists, and neurologists.

    Summary: "Neurosurgery Case Review: Questions and Answers, 2nd Edition by Remi Nader, Abdulrahman Sabbagh, Samer Elbabaa, Hosam Al Jehani, Jaime Gasco, and Cristian Gragnaniello provides a robust study guide for the American Board Neurological Surgery and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada oral board examinations. The second edition expands on the highly successful first edition, presenting 148 cases commonly encountered by neurosurgeons in clinical practice. The cases are broadly divided into seven sections-tumor, vascular intracranial pathology, trauma, pediatric, functional, spine, and peripheral nerves. The chapters are arranged in a manner that mirrors the oral board exam. Each case includes a brief clinical scenario followed by questions on presentation, diagnosis, imaging, management, surgical detail, complications, and outcome. The presented information is backed by the latest available evidence-based references and data. Key Features: Contributions from internationally renowned neurosurgical educators Detailed answers enhance readers' knowledge and provide guidance on how to respond to questions asked in the oral board exams More than 760 high-quality images, many in full color, ensure visual understanding of key concepts Suggested readings at the end of cases offer additional study resources This is an indispensable, one-stop resource for neurosurgical residents and fellows prepping for the ABNS and Royal College oral board examinations. Neurosurgeons studying for recertification will also find this book an invaluable reference for rapid review"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: "Surgery requires a combination of knowledge and skill acquired through years of direct observation, mentorship, and practice. The learning curve can be steep, frustrating, and intimidating for many medical students and junior residents. Too often, books and texts that attempt to translate the art of surgery are far too comprehensive for this audience and counterproductive to learning important basic skills to succeed. Neurosurgery Outlines by neurosurgeon Paul Kaloostian is the neurosurgical volume in a series of textbooks that offer a simplified roadmap to surgery. This unique resource outlines key steps for common surgeries, laying a solid foundation of basic knowledge from which trainees can easily build and expand. The text serves as starting point for learning neurosurgical techniques, with room for adding notes, details, and pearls collected during the journey. Chapters are systematically organized and formatted by subspecialty, encompassing spine, radiosurgery, brain tumors and vascular lesions, head trauma, functional neurosurgery, epilepsy, pain, and hydrocephalus. Each chapter includes symptoms and signs, surgical pathology, diagnostic modalities, differential diagnosis, treatment options, indications for surgical intervention, step-by-step procedures, pitfalls, prognosis, and references where applicable"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: Neurotrauma in Multiple Choice Questions is the FIRST review book to use the multiple-choice question format in neurosurgical trauma. Students of neurosurgery, the resident, the fellow, the younger neurosurgeon preparing for exams or practice, and even the later stage neurosurgeon are the target audience of this book. The information in this work is in accordance with the most up-to-date best practice evidence, with a style that mirrors the format adopted by the majority of local, regional, and international board examinations. The strategy and format of the questions provide a stepwise progression from definition to surgical decision-making, to a comprehensive and concise overview of neurological trauma.

    Summary: "This book is written primarily for students and residents in general surgery. It is meant to serve as an introduction to the field of surgery, rather than a comprehensive review. In this edition, we have re-organized the overall structure. First and foremost, we reduced the size to fit in a lab coat pocket, so you can carry it with you for quick reference. Accordingly, we pared down some of the text to focus on the essential information. New features to this edition include "Trusted Sources," which are links to non-commercial websites and other sources of up-to-date details and practice guidelines on relevant topics. We have also aimed to create more alignment with the NMS Surgery Casebook. This involved changing the order of the chapters from the previous edition and adding "Cut to Casebook" cross-references to make it easier to find the appropriate cases to complement the textbook. We have also revised the outline of each chapter to open with highlights, called "Chapter Cuts." The key points are immediately followed by "Critical Surgical Associations," which provide triggers for medical students to remember important connections in the surgical thought process. For the tremendous work put into this edition, we thank the individual contributors. Their highquality and frequently punctual contributions have made our jobs as editors pleasant. We are also grateful to the editorial team at Wolters Kluwer for their guidance and support throughout the Process"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: "In recent years the field of nuclear medicine has witnessed an unprecedented explosion of new clinical diagnostic tracers, radionuclide therapies, hardware, and molecular imaging paradigms. This new second edition of RadCases Plus Q&A Nuclear Medicine by Daniel Appelbaum, John Miliziano, Anup Jacob Alexander, and Yong Bradley reflects these advances, presenting 100 new cases and 500 high-quality images. The book covers a wide spectrum, from classic topics, such as thyroid, bone, parathyroid, and renal scans, to the paradigm-shifting concept of "theranostics."
