Leading oncologists release Russia's first encyclopedia of pediatric thoracoabdominal oncological surgery

Every year in Russia, about 4 thousand children need help of cancer surgeons. The lives of children depend on the professionalism and knowledge of surgeons. RUDN experts share relevant information and many years of experience for the first time in Russia, presenting systemic knowledge of pediatric thoracoabdominal oncological surgery in an encyclopedia published by a professor at the Faculty of Continuing Medical Education of RUDN University, Doctor of medical sciences Andrey Ryabov. The book is edited by the former chief oncologist of Russia, a brilliant oncologist surgeon, legendary academician Mikhail Davydov.

The Encyclopedia of Pediatric Thoracoabdominal Oncological Surgery is the first monograph on this subject in Russia.

“The book summarizes and systematizes the vast experience in the field of pediatric as well as adult thoracoabdominal surgery accumulated in one of the leading institutes of the country — Radiology Research Center of the RF Ministry of Health. The encyclopedia will definitely become each pediatric oncologist-surgeon’s reference book,” says Mikhail Davydov, Doctor of medical sciences, professor, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia.

The monograph describes the current state of cancer surgery of children’s chest, abdominal and retroperitoneal tumors. The book details the features of cancer surgeries with clinical observations. Many complex surgeries to remove children’s malignant tumors were performed personally by Professor Ryabov and Professor Davydov.

“Transferring adult thoracoabdominal surgery technologies to children’s surgery is a decisive step for a qualitative breakthrough,” says Andrei Ryabov, MD, professor of the Department of Surgery and Oncology, Faculty of Continuing Medical Education of RUDN University.

Particular attention is paid to anesthesia and the choice of surgical access. In addition, epidemiology, statistics, basic classifications and methods of combined treatment are considered.

The encyclopedia will help practicing pediatric oncologists, pediatric surgeons and specialists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of children with thoracoabdominal tumors.

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
