With technological advancements, Minimal Access Surgery has emerged in a big way as a super specialty in itself. Many surgeons aspire to master this technique. Various institutions, both private and Government, have started several fellowship and degree courses, some of which have also been recognized by the MCI.

This book is an effort to help aspiring surgeons to clear various entrance examinations of these courses. It fills the existing lacuna for a comprehensive MCQ book dedicated to minimal access surgery.

The MCQs are high yield and have been arranged for easy reading and revisions.

The book offers a quick review of minimal access surgery and contains more than 1000 MCQS. It includes 11 major sections- Fundamentals of Laparoscopy, Basic Laparoscopy, Advanced Laparoscopy, Bariatric & Metabolic surgery and recent advances including Robotics and NOTES.

Each section is further subdivided into various chapters like Evolution of MAS, Ergonomics and Instrumentation, Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, Laparoscopic Hernia repair, Laparoscopic Urology, Obesity Surgery, VATS, Robotics etc.

We hope that this book will prove beneficial to the students, postgraduates and practicing surgeons alike.

Dr. Akhilesh K. Pathak

It gives me great pleasure to present this Practical Record Book of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology for the undergraduate medical students. Normally, the medical students have to fill up the practical record book as a part of their curriculum in Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. I have visited many institutes in India for the examination and observed that at majority of the places these practical record books are incomplete and outdated in numerous perspectives due to the lack of consistency in the practical work. The approaches of the students to fill up these practical record books are different in deferent institutes at various states and hence there are inconsistencies in the learning process, which influences even their subsequent professional life too.
The contents of this book are having the most of the standard proformas commonly used for reporting of various medicolegal cases with a brief description of important points to learn before starting the particular exercise. Each proforma is carefully designed to help the students to get a thorough insight of the MLC cases. However, the students should have a sound knowledge regarding the medicolegal cases they are dealing with. This book is enriched with museum photographs, which will help the students to identify the various specimens in the examinations. The book adheres to our objective to provide a uniform standardized practical record book all over the country, which can help the undergraduate medical students to understand and present the matter in their examinations and subsequently in their medical practice during handling of medicolegal cases. This book reflects personal experience of almost 20 yrs.

Dr. Vivekanshu Verma, Dr. Shiv Rattan Kochar, Dr. Devendra Richhariya

Managing Trauma & Toxicology is not a career for the faint hearted. Progression through training requires passing the Practical’s, accepted as being one of the most difficult parts of Scoring, if not prepared & studied in advance. Creating objective structured clinical exams (OSCEs) or Objective Structured Practical exams (OSPEs). Simulation exercises in Injury & Intoxication can feel overwhelming, but the benefits of this kind of practice-based learning and assessment—for future health care practitioners and their future patients! —make them work definitely worth doing. This is why we wrote this book. It is our hope that the systematic approach offered here will make it easier for more people to get involved in the process of conducting OSCEs or OSPE exercises. OSCEs play an increasing role within contemporary health professions education across all disciplines and across the continuum of training. They are important educational tools for high-quality teaching (formative assessments) as well as for the evaluation of basic and advanced clinical skills (summative assessments). Medical students can use this book as a study aid, as selection of case scenarios has been customized to make this book beneficial for a wide variety of audience preparing for OSCEs & OSPEs. This book will help Postgraduates of MD & DNB in Emergency Medicine, Forensic Medicine, Critical Care & undergraduate candidates preparing for Subject of Acute Trauma care, Clinical Forensic & Toxicological Emergencies. The OSCE is an internationally accepted valid tool for evaluating clinical performance. We sincerely hope that the simulation cases in this book will be beneficial to trainees in their preparation for the USMLE examination and also for other equivalent competitive examinations (MRCEM, MCEM, MEM) and competency assessments (FRCS). The OSPEs instill terror in the minds of candidates. The sheer number of stations and brevity of each one demands a profound level of knowledge coupled with continual practice. This book is an invaluable aide to trainees sitting the exam. The stations are authentic, and the explanatory notes are so detailed that they are a valuable supplement to the standard textbooks. College tutors and other trainers will also find it helpful, not only as a source of revision, but also to assist them in setting up new practice stations. This book consists of sets of OSCE cases that closely simulate the OSCE format of the latest MCI curriculum. The tutorial following each OSCE station will provide a depth and breadth of knowledge for candidates and will assist trainers in setting up additional OSCEs on the related subject. We can assure that you will score well after reading & practicing OSCEs & OSPEs Case scenarios in simulation lab with this Practical workbook in your hand.

Dr. D.R. Singh

In the past fifty years or so there have been many changes that have shaped how students learn human anatomy with curriculum becoming either more integrated or more system based. An explosion of information in acquisition of knowledge in every discipline has been a force in driving curriculum change as it increases the amount to be learnt without necessarily increasing the time available. With these changes it was realized that a new text to be written that would allow students to learn anatomy. I eventually decided upon a simple approach with each chapter having four consecutive sections: Chapter Outlines, Gross Features, Microscopic Structure, and Applied Anatomy.

The Chapter Outline provides the basis on which the contents of the chapter will be built. This portion of the chapter can be utilized by the students who only require a basic level of understanding and can also be read a summary of the important required for mastering the chapter. The Gross Features provide more detailed anatomy along with a substantial amount of relevant clinical correlation. It is not an exhaustive description but instead provides information to a level that is necessary for understanding the structural and/or functional plan of any particular organ. Microscopic Structure of any organ has been described with the text dealing with salient features and is supported by photomicrographs and line drawings for more clarity. An attempt to correlate the gross and histological has been done. Applied Anatomy in the final section of every chapter represents the third level of clinical aspect regarding any organ.

Illustrations are an integral part of any text. They must depict the reader with a conceptual image of the region that brings text to life and presents views that will assist in the understanding of the regional anatomy. The illustrations are drawn by the author himself designed to integrate the text in new ways, and to provide a conceptual framework for building further understanding the description. Standard conventional colors have been used throughout the book except when indicated specifically.

I felt that there are many outstanding textbooks covering the section areas described in this book, hence trying to cover ridiculously simple presentation would produce a text of greater usefulness, in the limited size of the book. I repeat that the text contents in this book are not exhaustive in coverage, but provide enough anatomical facts to provide majority of students a comprehensive structural and clinical material for their use in traditional /systemic, and problem-based curricula, and, therefore, will be particularly beneficial to students who want to revise anatomy in minimal time especially during the examination period.

The socio-cultural and historical marginalization of the tribes that had begun in the pre-colonial periods was also strengthened through the colonial discourses on race and culture. Historical discourse has also been largely silent on the subject of tribe history, which now is being resurrected from these silent spaces. Literature is another area of discourse that has sought to represent tribe life through various genres and languages. There are many works dealing with the “Tribe Theme” in both English and regional languages of India. The first article is entitled Chhotanagpur an Untold History is presenting a Historical enquiry about the tribal communities in Jharkhand and their cultural practices since a long time. Second article is clarifying the nomenclature of Chhotanagpur region that how this name has been for this territory and also explain the interconnectedness between the term and contradictions. Third paper is explaining the process of Hinduisation of tribe of Jharkhand with the four layer conversion which has presented the outline of Hinduisation process. Fourth article is related to the governance system among tribe women of Santhal Parganas. Fifth article is related with the system of youth migration in Jharkhand its impact and factors responsible for the movement of tribe people to other areas. Sixth article is associated with the concern of development of Ranchi city in Global context and leisure activities of tribe people. Seventh article is explaining the status of discrimination among tribe girls and boys in rural areas. Eight article is related with the Global challenges which the tribe of Ranchi city are facing in recent era. Ninth paper has highlighted the most burning issues of tribe communities i.e. their right and perception about the Jal, Jungle and Zameen which is explained through the interpretative analysis of Chhotanagpur tenancy act. In the tenth paper I had highlighted the impact of Globalisation on tribe of Jharkhand region.And Lastly I have tried to bridge the gap between the law and tribe society of Jharkhand. This book is basically focused over the unique fictional technique combines historical fact and the narratives embedded in tribe myth and memory, to create works that offer new and alternative perspectives on the discourse on tribes in Jharkhand.

Many medical professionals are doing wonderful, dedicated, and admirable work. Research and technological developments have enhanced medical capabilities to help patients manifold.   However, the existing medical professionals are unhappy in the profession and the youngsters are shying away from this profession. What could have changed so suddenly to cause disappointment in this noble profession?  There are several reasons for this, but the patient’s lack of trust and respect for the medical profession leading to violence is the most important cause.  We need to improve the doctor-patient relationship quickly because the good health of the citizens is essential for the prosperity of the nation.

The solution to violence is unraveled in this book. It is Beyond Medicine. The key to this solution is in the A to E for the medical professionals. Our education system from childhood was informative.  This led to a lack of motivation among youngsters.  Medical education in the past heavily relied upon giving the medical knowledge, skills, and experience to the medical trainees. Many other skills beyond these determine the success of the medical professionals. The new competency-based medical curriculum tries to address these lacunae.  This book defines these skills and the ways to obtain them.  Currently, there is a severe paucity of such books to help medical professionals beyond the scope of medicine. All 54 competencies of AETCOM module are well covered in this book.

It will help you to connect with people by being a good listener, sharer, and carer.  It will become a lifetime resource for you to enjoy your professional work and win the trust and respect of your patients. We believe the book will transform you into a true leader with extraordinary professional and human skills.

The authors are experts in the field of communication skills and personality development of the medical trainees. Dr. Kalidas Chavan did his Ph.D. on the role of communication skills in improving the Doctor-Patient relationship. Dr. Sandeep Mane conducted communication skills training in the UK for international doctors coming to the UK for training. He was in charge of the practical skills training at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London. In association with the MUHS, he conducted the “Susanwaad Abhiyaan” across Maharashtra to offer communication skills training to the trainees. Dr. Sunil Thitame is working in the field of communication skills in public health for the last five years. He has participated as a lead trainer in the workshops on Communication Skills for the postgraduate students. He has done extensive work on the role of communication skills in health care delivery and published the research articles in reputed journals.

The team of authors enjoyed working together to bring this book for the benefit of the medical professionals. Our dream is to help the medical professionals to become service-oriented and socially responsible.  This book will transform our medical professionals and make them ready to serve humanity at par with the best professional standards of the world.

In an endeavour to spread the knowledge of Anesthetic drugs, I have taken up the daunting task of writing this book. The book is simple to read and easy to remember. It will be of utmost use to the postgraduate students in anesthesiology, and the
budding anaesthesiologists. Being handy, the busy ‘free- lance’ anaesthesiologists can review and refresh their knowledge regarding drugs.
