Overview

Perioperative care of the patient with a multisystem inflammatory (rheumatic) disease has become increasingly complex and perioperative medicine has evolved into its own subspecialty. Physicians who have expertise in managing patients with rheumatic disease infrequently spend significant time also managing patients undergoing surgical procedures, and the reverse is equally true. Despite the burgeoning literature on the medical management of the surgical patient, scant data have been generated regarding patients with complex rheumatic disease. Perioperative Management of Patients with Rheumatic Disease fills a conspicuous gap in the literature and aims at providing a paved path for rheumatologists—who infrequently manage surgical problems—and medical consultants—who only seldom encounter patients with rheumatic diseases—to tread as they care for patients in the perioperative period. The book addresses discrete management issues from the perspective of the medical subspecialist and also offers concise descriptions of surgical procedures. Written from the surgical perspective for the internist, the surgical procedure chapters include a brief description of relative contraindications, time to recovery, rehabilitation suggestions, and comments regarding common and severe procedure specific postoperative complications.

Reviewer: Maria Gonzalez-Mayda, M.D.(Washington University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides guidelines on the perioperative management of patients with various rheumatic diseases based on an extensive review of the literature and on some personal experiences by the authors of each chapter.
Purpose: The purpose is to answer the myriad questions that arise on how to manage patients with different rheumatic conditions perioperatively. It addresses many concerns the care of this special group of patients, covering the perioperative management of patients with SLE, RA, inflammatory myopathies, scleroderma, vasculitis, ITP/TTP patients etc.
Audience: The audience is broad and includes medical students, residents, general practitioners, internists, rheumatologists and other specialists in internal medicine.
Features: As a rheumatologist, I found this book to be a helpful reference since I deal with this group of immunocompromised patients every day, and questions on the perioperative management of these patients often arise. I especially appreciated the tables in each chapter highlighting important information.
Assessment: I would recommend this book to anyone who cares for patients with rheumatic diseases or will be challenged with caring for them perioperatively and needs a guide to managing their medications, using prophylactic antibiotics prior to surgery, etc.
