    Nonsexual and Sexual Traumatic Injuries of the Perineum, External Genital Organs and the Breasts: Adult, Elderly and Pediatric

    In this book we will review the anatomy and traumatic injuries of the perineum, external genital organs and the breasts, both sexual and nonsexual in origin. Although the breast anatomically is not part of the perineum or the external genital organs, it is considered an accessory to reproductive function. Also, when considering traumatic injuries to the breasts, especially those of a sexual abuse nature, they are not uncommonly subjected to trauma as are the external genitalia.
    As in previous books, the first part, pages 1-141, will cover the relevant anatomy of the perineum, external genital organs and the breasts. The remaining portion of the book, pages 142-416, are devoted to traumatic injuries to these structures. The purpose of this format is two fold: first, it will constitute a review of the anatomy of these structures for medical students, pathology residents, forensic pathology fellows, forensic nurses, emergency room residents and trauma surgery residents, aiding them in understanding the pathophysiologic dynamics of traumatic injuries; secondly, since this book may also be used by medicolegal investigators, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, law enforcement personnel and attorneys, such a review will help them to develop a better understanding of the effects of trauma on the victims.
    As indicated above, there will be a discussion of traumatic sexual abuse injuries, which will include male and female, adults, elderly, children and infants. Due to the nature of this subject some of the 415 illustrations are graphic, which some may find disturbing to view.
    Lastly, there will be a section addressing contentious issues, which the forensic pathologist may face as a medical examiner/coroner.

    Traumatic Injuries of the Organs of the Pelvis: Adult and Pediatric

    In this book we will review the traumatic injuries of the organs of the pelvis, which will include the urinary bladder, the rectum, the anal canal, and the internal genital organs. Although the rectum and anal canal represent the terminal portions of the gastrointestinal tract, only the rectum lies within the pelvis. However, for the sake of continuity we will consider the two parts together.
    As in previous books, the first part will be devoted to the relevant anatomy of the pelvis and its contained organs. As discussed previously, the purpose of a discussion of the relevant anatomy is two fold. First, it will constitute a reveiw of the anatomy for the medical students, pathology residents, forensic pathology fellows, forensic nurses, emergency room residents, and trauma surgeon residents, aiding them in understanding the pathophysiologic dynamics of traumatic injuries to the pelvis and its contained organs. Second, since this book may also be used by medicolegal investigators, paramedics, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys who have little knowledge of anatomy, such a review will help them to develop a better understanding of the affects of trauma on the victims
    There will also be a discussion of the mechanisms of injury to the pelvic cavity and its contained organs.

    Traumatic Injuries of the Organs of the Retroperitoneal Space: Adult and Pediatric

    Introduction

    In this book we will review the traumatic injuries to the organs of the retroperitoneal space, which will include the pancreas except for its tail, which is located in the splenoremal ligament, kidneys, ureters, adrenal glands, abdominal aorta, and the inferior vena cava.
    The first part of this book will be devoted to a discussion of the relevant anatomy of each organ. The purpose of this discussion is two fold. First, it will constitute a review of the anatomy for the medical students, pathology residents and forensic pathology fellows, aiding them in understanding the pathophysiologic dynamics involved in traumatic injuries to these organs. Second, since this book may also be used by medicolegal investigators, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys, who have little knowledge of anatomy, such a review will help them to have a better understanding of the relationships between trauma applied to the victim and their injuries.
    The second part of the book will be devoted to a discussion of the traumatic injuries to the organs of the retroperitoneal space, both in the adult and pediatric age groups. This discussion will also include the mechanisms of injury to the retroperitoneal organs.

    Traumatic Injuries of the Organs of the Abdominal Cavity: Adult and Pediatric

    In this book we will review the traumatic injuries to the organs of the abdominal cavity, which will include the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, jejunum and ileum, mesentery, appendix, colon, liver, gallbladder, and spleen. It consist of 202 pages with 160 illustrations. There will be a discussion, in a general sense, of the mechanism of injury to the abdominal organs when the abdomen is subjected to blunt force trauma. We will first review the surface anatomy as well as the anatomy of the abdominal cavity. The foundation of thought behind reviewing the anatomy is based on the fact that an understanding of the surface anatomy will give you some insight into what you can anticipate internally during your external examination. It will also give you a grasp of the dynamics involved which produced the external and internal injuries. Since this book may also be used by medicolegal investigators, police officers and attorneys, who for the most part have little knowledge of anatomy, such a review may help them in having a better understanding of the relationship between the blunt force trauma applied to the victim and their injuries.
