Cutting For Stone

by Marilyn Herbert, Cutting For Stone Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Cutting For Stone book, Cutting for Stone is very simply one of the best books ever written and read. The narrative begins in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, when twin boys, Shiva and Marion, are born to a nun (who dies) and a surgeon (who runs away). The babies, conjoined at the head, are successfully separated immediately after birth. The original conjoinment and separation of the boys becomes the operating theme of the novel and we are given situation after situation in which to consider the concepts of fusion and partition. Bookclub-in-a-Box looks at all that Verghese provides: history (Ethiopia and Eritrea), medicine (blood and liver disease), psychology (the search for identity), sociology (human relationships) and philosophy (of both science and religion). The narrative's real facts and descriptions are especially interesting for their thematic implications. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box printed discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style, and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

Hijos Del Ancho Mundo Cutting For Stone

by Abraham Verghese, Hijos Del Ancho Mundo Cutting For Stone Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Hijos Del Ancho Mundo Cutting For Stone book, Dotado de las virtudes de los grandes novelistas del siglo XIX, el médico y escritor Abraham Verghese -de origen indio y criado en Etiopía-, ha escrito una historia apasionante que sigue a sus protagonistas a través de la India, África y América a lo largo de cinco décadas, creando así un gran fresco de un país desconocido para la mayoría.Mientras la India celebra su flamante independencia, la abadesa de un convento de carmelitas en Madrás hace realidad uno de sus sueños más audaces: enviar a África dos jóvenes monjas enfermeras con la noble misión de transmitir el amor de Cristo ayudando a mitigar el dolor de los que sufren. Siete años más tarde, en el modesto hospital Missing de Adis Abeba nacen dos varones gemelos, Marion y Shiva Stone. El hecho no tendría nada de particular si no fuera porque su madre es una monja que muere en el parto y su padre un cirujano británico que desaparece sin dejar rastro. Así, los primeros años de los hermanos Stone transcurrirán en el feliz microcosmos del hospital misionero, criados por un pequeño grupo de personas que, con escasos medios y recursos, se afanan en curar a los enfermos. Con el transcurrir del tiempo, sin embargo, ese mundo cerrado y protegido en el que Marion y Shiva comparten su pasión por la medicina se resquebraja ante la presión de los acontecimientos que sacuden Etiopía y que arrastrarán a los hermanos Stone por caminos diferentes, poniendo a prueba su inquebrantable amistad.

Ureteral Stone Management

by Sutchin R. Patel, Ureteral Stone Management Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Ureteral Stone Management book, With the rising incidence of urolithiasis, the management of ureteral stones continues to become a larger component of urologic practice. Though almost all urologists deal with ureteral stones, there have been many recent improvements in instrumentation and adjunctive equipment as well as improvements in imaging and the data we can obtain from radiologic imaging in order to guide stone management. Newer topics such as how to limit radiation exposure to both the patient and the urologist, the accuracy and limitations of low-dose computed tomography as well as a review of the most recent studies will be covered in this book. The purpose of this book is to provide a complete updated roadmap to treating ureteral stones, from early management decisions from information found on radiologic studies to adjusting to intra-operative challenges.
