Surgical Endocrinology presents the fundamentals and practical application of the subject matter. It discusses the molecular background and physiology of the endocrine systems. It addresses the legal aspects of endocrine surgery such as duty of care, and breach of such duty. Some of the topics covered in the book are the principles of endocrine surgery; molecular structures of organisms; physiology of endocrine system; multiple endocrine neoplasia and molecular genetics; non-surgical management of pituitary tumors; assay formulations and automation technology; syndrome of ectopic hormone production; and anesthesia for pituitary surgery. The classifications of endocrine problems for pregnant women are fully covered. The definition and symptoms of thyrotoxicosis are discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the different histological imaging methods. The anatomy and surgery of anterior pituitary are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to the classification of pituitary adenomas and other tumours. The book can provide useful information to surgeons, doctors, students, and researchers.
