«Alessia Gazzola si conferma la regina del medical thriller italiano.» la Repubblica «I romanzi di Alessia Gazzola sono, per me, un bel cartoccio di patatine fritte cucinate a regola d’arte, croccanti e dorate, che dalla prima all’ultima pagina ti regalano una bella bolla di problemi altrui di cui impicciarti con l’implicita autorizzazione di chi te li racconta.» TTL - La Stampa - Marco Malvaldi «Alessia Gazzola è una scrittrice di incredibile talento. Grande tensione psicologica e un ritmo travolgente, vi terrà svegli tutta la notte!» Jeffery Deaver Alice Allevi ha un grosso problema. Si è appena resa conto di non voler più diventare un medico, ma non ha il coraggio di confessarlo a nessuno, e non sa cosa fare del suo futuro. Ma siccome la vita è sorprendente, sarà l’omicidio di una persona vicina alla sua famiglia a far scoprire ad Alice la sua vocazione: la medicina legale. Forse c’entra il suo intuito, che la induce a ficcanasare dove non dovrebbe, mettendo a rischio le indagini. Forse c’entra l’arrivo della sua nuova coinquilina Yukino, una studentessa giapponese che parla come un cartone animato e che stravolge le abitudini, non solo culinarie, di Alice. Forse c’entra nonna Amalia che, con saggezza mista a battute fulminanti, sa come districarsi fra i pettegolezzi di paese. Una cosa è certa: Alice non lo ammetterebbe mai, ma se sceglierà quella specializzazione, è soprattutto per rivedere Claudio Conforti, il giovane medico legale che ha conosciuto durante il sopralluogo. Vestito in maniera impeccabile, sorriso affilato come un bisturi, occhi travolgenti. Arrogante, sprezzante e... Irresistibile.

Ultrasound technology is enabling anesthesiologists to perform regional anesthetic procedures with greater confidence in accuracy and precision. With improvements in visualizing neural anatomy and needle movement, ultrasound guidance improves patient safety and operating room efficiency. This book offers a detailed, stepwise approach to this technique, identifying pearls and pitfalls to ensure success. Topics are organized into four chapters. The first chapter provides the basic principles behind ultrasound guided regional anesthesia, setting a strong context for the rest of the book. The last three cover the nerve blocks: upper extremity, lower extremity, and chest, trunk and spine. Each nerve block is comprehensively explained, divided up by introduction, anatomy, clinical applications, technique, alternate techniques, complications, and pearls. This new edition includes discussions of 6 new blocks: the suprascapular block, axillary nerve block for shoulder surgery, fascia iliaca block, lateral femoral cutaneous block, and the adductor canal block. This edition also contains over 40 new procedural and imaging figures, an appendix on what blocks to perform for specific surgeries, and new information on choice of local anesthetic agent, types of catheters and practical ultrasound physics to help improve scanning. Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia provides authoritative, in-depth coverage of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia for the anesthesiologist beginning to use ultrasound and makes a great reference for the more seasoned physician.

Of the two disciplines in parallel development for two decades, tumor immunology and transplantation immunology, the latter has thrived and has led to some of the most critical discoveries in immunobiology. The former continues to thwart both scientists and clinicians alike. The goal of immunologists in modern day research is to develop a simple and effective means to manipulate cancer in vivo, possibly encompassing several venues: identifying a phenotypic marker and the use of either active or passive immunization; include the use of passive reagents carrying "warheads" to selectively destroy cancer cells; or altering the basic process of cell survival. This excellent multidiscipline-authored volume presents a theme which has not been well described before. The papers include both basic and clinical science and range from sophisticated molecular biology to little more than phenomenology (e.g. the increased association of cancer in some autoimmune diseases and increased presentation of autoimmune phenomena in malignant condition). This, however, is state-of-the-art. This collection of themes will be of use not only to bench scientists, but also to clinicians who treat patients. The book represents progress at the cutting edge of this discipline, and points the way to further developments in the "black box" of immunology.

SPECIAL FOR THIS EDITION: The Return of Jamie & Claire -- a sneak preview of the next Outlander novel! Plus the short story Lord John and the Hell-fire Club. Adored bestselling author Diana Gabaldon brings us the first book in a new trilogy featuring many of the characters from her wildly popular Outlander series. In her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels, Diana Gabaldon introduced millions of readers to a dazzling world of history and adventure -- a world of vibrant settings and utterly unforgettable characters. Now one of these characters, Major Lord John Grey, opens the door to his own part of this world -- eighteenth-century London, a seething anthill of nobility and rabble peopled by soldiers and spies, whores and dukes. Great Britain is battling France for supremacy on three continents -- and life is good for a soldier. The year is 1757. On a clear morning in mid-June, Lord John Grey emerges from London’s Beefsteak Club, his mind in turmoil. A nobleman and a high-ranking officer in His Majesty’s Army, Grey has just witnessed something shocking. But his efforts to avoid a scandal that might destroy his family are interrupted by something still more urgent: the Crown appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of a comrade in arms, who may have been a traitor. Obliged to pursue two inquiries at once, Major Grey finds himself ensnared in a web of treachery and betrayal that touches every stratum of English society -- and threatens all he holds dear. From the bawdy houses of London’s night-world to the stately drawing rooms of the nobility, and from the blood of a murdered corpse to the thundering seas ruled by the majestic fleet of the East India Company, Lord John pursues the elusive trails of a vanishing footman and a woman in green velvet, who may hold the key to everything -- or nothing. The early days of the Seven Years War come brilliantly to life in this historical mystery by an author whose unique and compelling storytelling has engrossed millions of readers worldwide. From the Trade Paperback edition.
