Excerpt from Lehrbuch der Orthodontie fur Studierende und Zahnarzte mit Einschlu der Geschichte der Orthodontie Begriff der Orthodontie. Kurze Andeut1mg der theoretischen und praktischen Hilfsmittel. Die Etymologie des Wortes Orthodontie (691%g, oooog) defi niert schon im wesentlichen ihren Begriff: sie beschaftigt sich mit dem Geraderichten der Zahne und bildet somit einen wich tigen Zweig der modernen Zahnheilkunde. Ich sage: im wesent lichen, denn die Grenzen ihres Bereiches haben sich seit der Pragung des Namens erweitert. Nicht nur die Regulierung der einzelnen Zahne und. Ihr Hineinzwangen in einen mehr oder weniger normalen Zahnbogen ist ihr Ziel, ihr Endzweck liegt vielmehr in der Herstellung eines vollkommen normalen Zahn bogens, einer einwandfreien Artikulation und. Einer damit ver bundenen wesentlichen Verbesserung der Gesichtszuge. Allmah lich brach sich die Erkenntnis Bahn, da die Stellungsanomalien der Zahne atiologisch auf Kieferdeformitaten zuruckzufuhren sind, und so trat ein neuer wesentlicher Gesichtspunkt im Pro gramm der Orthodontie auf: Die Formgebungder Kiefer, wobei es sich meist um Dehnung handelt. Kurz: die Orthodontie ist schon heute weit uber ihren ursprunglichen Rahmen hinaus ge wachsen und wird es noch mehr tun. Ein Beweis fur die Er weiterungsfahigkeit des Feldes ihrer Tatigkeit ist die Tatsache, da schon jetzt Mundatmung durch Oberkieferdehnung, die eine Erweiterung der Nasenhohle zur Folge hat, beseitigt wird.

International Series of Monographs in Pure and Applied Biology: Zoology
Author: Chr. P. Raven
An Outline of Developmental Physiology was first published in the Dutch language in 1948, while the first English edition appeared in 1954. It was meant in the first place for readers who, though interested in its subject and having some general knowledge of science, were not acquainted with more than the first elements of biology. This new edition has been brought up to date by taking into account the literature up to about the middle of 1963. The book opens with a discussion of the fusion of sperm and egg. This is followed by separate chapters that explain the series of processes that transform the initially fairly homogeneous structure of the egg into a system with a considerable degree of spatial multiplicity. This book may be used as a preliminary introduction into the field in undergraduate classes. A list of references has been added in the interest of those who might want to refer to the original publications on some special problem. Moreover, a glossary of scientific terms has been included for the benefit of those readers who are not professional biologists.
Volume V: Society for the Study of Human Biology
Author: D. R. Brothwell
Category: Social Science
Symposia of the Society for the Study of Human Biology, Volume V: Dental Anthropology is a collection of papers that covers the application of dental pathology in the context of anthropology. The book presents 15 studies that cover various human dental variables and relates to different anthropological factors. The dental variables considered in the articles include tooth morphology; occlusion and malocclusion of primate teeth; morphogenesis of deciduous molar pattern in man; and double-rooted human lower canine teeth. The text also covers topics about race specific dental traits such as radiographic study of the Neanderthal teeth from Krapina; crown characters of the deciduous dentition of the Japanese-American hybrids; and analysis of the American Indian dentition. The selection will be of great interest to evolutionary scientists, such as anthropologists and paleontologists.

This is the first surgical atlas demonstrating preparatory steps by photographs! These operations are shown: organ donation (liver-kidney, liver-pancreas-kidney, kidney), orthotopic liver transplantation, segmental liver transplantation (preparation of a left liver graft, preparation of a left lateral liver graft, split liver preparation), living-related liver donation, heterotopic liver transplantation, pancreas transplantation, and kidney transplantation. The photographs explain each important preparatory step, as well as potential variants and possible pitfalls. For each operation a checklist for preoperative preparation and postoperative care is included to allow a quick survey of the pre- and postoperative periods. The book clearly explains all details of surgical technique and anatomy. The authors have restricted the text to a minimum so that the reader can gain a clearer understanding of the anatomy as each procedure develops... With the increasing number of organ transplantations ... more and more general surgeons have to be involved in organ donation... This atlas is recommended for all transplant surgeons and should be available to all general units where organ donation occurs. -Transplant International
Cobamide and Biotin Coenzymes
Author: Marcel Florkin,Elmer H. Stotz
Comprehensive Biochemisty, Volume 16: Hydrolytic Reactions; Cobamide and Biotin Coenzymes treats both the chemistry and function of the coenzymes. This book discusses the thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of enzyme catalysis, hydrolytic enzymes displaying “active center characteristics, chelation and stereochemical considerations in enzyme catalysis, and biological oxidation mechanisms. The recommendations of the Enzyme Commission of the International Union of Biochemistry and classified list of enzymes are also covered. This publication likewise elaborates the spectral characteristics of the cobamide coenzymes and mode of binding of biotin. Other topics include the classification of carboxyl esterases, structure and reactivity of phosphorylated metabolites, and mechanism of action of chymotrypsin. This volume is a good reference for biochemists and specialists concerned with enzymes.

Fundamentals of Biochemical Pharmacology explains the molecular aspects of drugs and the changes in bio-chemical systems. The cellular movements that result from such changes are also evaluated. Biochemical lesion is extensively defined in the book. A discussion on electromagnetic radiation is also provided. A chapter of the book is devoted to the principles of electronic and nuclear magnetic resonance. The principles and applications of mass spectrometry and combined gas chromatography are then discussed. The scientific advances made with the use of immunological methods are the focus of a section of the book. Another section provides an introduction to the kinetic properties of reactions made by enzymes. The process called homogenization is clearly explained along with a discussion on the use of electron microscopy. Autoradiography shows the distribution of compounds at the subcellular level. The theoretical background of molecular spectroscopy is presented completely. The book is intended for chemists, biochemists, physicists, micro-biologists, zoologists, and botanists .
A Clinical Introduction to Medical Ethics Systems Theory
Author: Colleen D. Clements
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
The Direction of Medical Ethics The direction bioethics, and specifically medical ethics, will take in the next few years will be crucial. It is an emerging specialty that has attempted a great deal, that has many differing agendas, and that has its own identity crisis. Is it a subspecialty of clinical medicine? Is it a medical reform movement? Is it a consumer pro tection movement? Is it a branch of professional ethics? Is it a ra tionale for legal decisions and agency regulations? Is it something physicians and ethical theorists do constructively together? Or is it a morally concentrated attack on high technology, with the prac titioners of scientific medicine and the medical ethicists in an adversarial role? Is it a conservative endeavor, exhibiting a Frankenstein syn drome in Medical Genetics ("this time, they have gone too far"), or a Clockwork Orange syndrome in Psychotherapy ("we have met hods to make you talk-walk-cry-kill")? Or does it suffer the afflic tion of overdependency on the informal fallacy of the Slippery Slope ("one step down this hill and we will never be able to stop") that remains an informal fallacy no matter how frequently it's used? Is it a restricted endeavor of analytic philosophy: what is the meaning of "disease," how is "justice" used in the allocation of medical resources, what constitutes "informed" or "consent?" Is it applied ethics, leading in clinical practice to some recommenda tion for therapeutic or preventive action? This incomplete list of questions indicates just how complex,
