How Broto Delor Instrumentacion Quirurgica Can Help You Master Surgical Instrumentation in Various Specialties

Article with HTML formatting: Broto Delor Instrumentacion Quirurgica: A Comprehensive Guide for Surgical Instrumentation

Surgical instrumentation is the art and science of selecting, preparing, handling, maintaining, sterilizing, storing, transporting, distributing, tracking, disposing, repairing, replacing, designing, developing, evaluating, testing, purchasing, ordering, inventorying, and managing all instruments used in surgical procedures. It is a vital component of patient safety, quality care, infection prevention, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency in the operating room.

Broto Delor Instrumentacion Quirurgica is a book written by Monica Graciela Broto and Stella Maris Delor, two certified surgical instrumenters from Argentina. They have extensive experience in teaching, researching, and practicing surgical instrumentation in various specialties. Their book is a comprehensive guide that covers all aspects of surgical instrumentation, from anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnosis to techniques, procedures, and equipment. It is divided into two volumes, each containing several chapters that focus on different surgical specialties.

The book is intended for instrumenters, paramedics, residents, and surgeons who want to learn or update their knowledge on surgical instrumentation. It is written in a clear, concise, and didactic style, with detailed descriptions, illustrations, tables, diagrams, and self-evaluation questions. It also includes information on new techniques, equipment, and minimally invasive surgery. The book is a valuable resource that can help improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of surgical care.

Part 1: Techniques by specialties

Chapter 1: Head and neck surgery

The head and neck region comprises various structures that are involved in vital functions such as breathing, swallowing, speaking, hearing, smelling, tasting, seeing, and facial expression. It includes the skull, brain, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, mouth, pharynx, larynx, trachea, esophagus, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, salivary glands, lymph nodes, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, bones, cartilage, skin,and soft tissues.

Head and neck surgery is a broad term that encompasses various subspecialties such as neurosurgery, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, endocrine surgery, vascular surgery, oncologic surgery, trauma surgery, and transplant surgery. The main indications for head and neck surgery are congenital anomalies, infections, inflammations, trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, endocrine disorders, functional disorders, cosmetic problems, and organ failure.

The instrumentation for head and neck surgery depends on the type, location, extent, and complexity of the procedure. Some general instruments that are used in most head and neck surgeries are scalpels, scissors, forceps, clamps, retractors, suction devices, cautery devices, drills, saws, osteotomes, chisels, mallets, curettes, rasps, elevators, hooks, probes, needles, sutures, staples, clips, dressing materials,and implants. Some specific instruments that are used in different subspecialties are microscopes,micro-instruments,endoscopes,loupes,laser devices,stents,tubes,catheters,balloons,dilators,splints,wires,screws,plates,nails,pins,rings,cages,meshes,valves,pumps,and artificial organs.

Chapter 2: Cranio-maxillofacial fractures

Cranio-maxillofacial fractures are fractures that involve the bones of the skull and face. They can be classified according to their location into frontal bone fractures,temporal bone fractures,sphenoid bone fractures,zygomatic bone fractures,nasal bone fractures,maxillary bone fractures,and mandibular bone fractures. They can also be classified according to their severity into simple fractures (one fracture line), comminuted fractures (multiple fracture lines), compound fractures (fracture with skin or mucosal laceration), depressed fractures (fracture with inward displacement), elevated fractures (fracture with outward displacement), greenstick fractures (incomplete fracture), pathologic fractures (fracture due to underlying disease), stress fractures (fracture due to repeated stress),and impacted fractures (fracture with bone fragments driven into each other).

The main causes of cranio-maxillofacial fractures are trauma due to motor vehicle accidents,falls,sports injuries,v iolence,fires,and explosions. The main complications of cranio-maxillofacial fractures are hemorrhage,infection,intracranial injury,cerebrospinal fluid leak,nervous
