About the book

Pleural pathology is complex and a multidisciplinary approach is oftentimes mandatory. This book will aim to share with the other specialties the specific elements of the surgical evaluation and the surgical options in the treatment of the pleural disease.

In the years, several therapeutic and technological advances have modified the surgical approach and outcomes to such pathologies and therefore are worthy of discussion.
We dedicated a chapter to the principles of chest drainage which may be of cross-specialty interest from A&E to post-surgical procedures.

The broad spectrum of the diseases of the pleura, which are to be considered heterogeneous by definition, may affect patients of different ages, require different treatment strategies, and have different outcomes (e.g. pneumothorax, mesothelioma).

In this book, we will discuss most of the pleural diseases but we opted to analyze them from the surgical point of view because of the complexity of diagnosis, treatment, and care of such patients, which may be challenging but critically important.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
