Global Rhinoplasty: A Multicultural Approach (Original PDF from Publisher)

By Ashkan Ghavami, Sam Most, Nazim Cerkes

A unique ethnocentric guide to rhinoplasty anatomy and techniques from globally renowned experts

In order for a facial plastic surgeon to create a harmonious relationship between the face and nose, it’s paramount to consider each patient’s ethnicity and gender identity. Nasal anatomy varies widely in terms of proportion, thickness, size, and resilience and many of these differences are specific to ethnicity. Although rhinoplasty has been available for many decades, applying Caucasian rhinoplasty guidelines to Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Black, and Asian patients increases the risk of adverse outcomes and the need for multiple or revision surgeries. Global Rhinoplasty: A Multicultural Approach edited by world-renowned facial plastic surgeons Ashkan Ghavami, Sam P. Most, and Nazim Cerkes fills a gap in the literature, providing in-depth coverage of non-Caucasian nasal anatomy and rhinoplasty approaches for each subtype.

The textbook includes 39 chapters and is organized in five sections: Principles, Anatomical Considerations, Primary Rhinoplasty, Secondary Rhinoplasty, and Special Considerations. Seventeen chapters cover anatomical and surgical techniques specific to the skin and soft tissue, dorsum, nasal tip, and nostrils for each ethnic group. Each of the 16 rhinoplasty chapters features expert commentary from the editors. The text concludes with discussion of preservation rhinoplasty, the use of fillers for nonsurgical and revision surgeries, evaluating psychosocial factors in patients seeking rhinoplasty surgery, and the role of marketing and social media in global practice. Throughout the book, authors share firsthand insights on potential pitfalls and strategies to prevent complications.

Key Highlights

  • Contributions and clinical pearls from globally recognized experts
  • In-depth analysis of ethnic variations in skin and nose anatomy and its impact on outcomes
  • Primary, secondary, and nonsurgical rhinoplasty videos provide invaluable visual guidance
  • High-quality case study operative photos and illustrations enhance understanding of anatomy, approaches, and outcomes

This must-have resource will help facial plastic surgeons significantly improve pre-surgical, surgical, and postoperative phases of rhinoplasty in Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Black, and Asian patients.

How to Read a Normal Scan: BRAIN MRI PART 2 (High Quality Image PDF)

By Dev Kumar

HOW TO READ A NORMAL SCAN: BRAIN MRI PART 2 focuses on normal neuroanatomy as seen on a standard MRI of the Brain. This is a continuation of Part 1 in the same series. It is vitally important that you have a clear idea as to the identity of each structure that you see on the MRI scan. It is of great importance that you should have as few ‘blind spots’ in your knowledge of BRAIN MRI radiological anatomy as possible, this makes life easier for you and your patient and if you are a resident this means way less headaches for your program director.As health care providers or health care students and trainees, we have all been there. We are staring intensely at a black and white picture known as the MRI (or CT), and the eager guy standing next to you points to some strange blob on it and asks “What is that?” In that moment of panic, you try to decide whether silence is golden or stupid. You try to decide whether you should open your mouth and reveal your ignorance and put your white coat to shame, or to wisely stroke your beard and look thoughtful.Medical student years and Residency years all go at the speed of a bullet train, where you are caught in the read-work-sleep cycle and you have no time to pause and think about the fundamentals that get glossed over on the way. Sure, you know how to identify a ‘stroke’ on the MRI scan but I bet you anything that even a kindergartner can stump you with a ‘What is that?’ question by just pointing at some random structure on the brain scan. It is all too easy to make the journey from the first glorious day of medical school to the last heartbreaking day of your practice without having a clue as to what that gray blob on the MRI actually represents.The objective of the “HOW TO READ A NORMAL SCAN” series is to familiarize you with NORMAL anatomy as seen on MRI scans and CT scans before memorizing what Hallevorden Spatz or Blah Blah looks like (sure enough in your Board exam they will want you to identify Blah Blah that no one has seen in 500 doctor years).My hope is, that after reading these books, at the very least you can point out structures on a normal scan and identify exactly what they are. And it is not just about avoiding the embarrassment of ignorance, it is about the sheer satisfaction of knowing what these things are…The purpose of the HOW TO READ A NORMAL SCAN series is to serve as a bridge between Anatomy classes and the reality of what you actually need to be able to identify on the scans that you will see in your daily practice. And the emphasis here is on having a clear idea as to what exactly each and every one of those structures on the scans are. You will not see any abnormal pathology on these scans, there are already plenty of books and atlases that focus on abnormal structures which are fundamentally a matter of ‘pattern recognition’.
