Diagnosis and Management

Paul N. Durrington

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 416

The third edition of this well-received text provides a state-of-the-art treatise on modern clinical practice relating to hyperlipidaemia and lipoprotein disorders, conditions responsible for a huge amount of morbidity and mortality in Western countries and, increasingly, the developing world. The clinical evidence underlying the treatment of hyperlipidaemia has burgeoned since the second edition published in 1994, with the publication of the results of several clinical trials on statin drugs, and the subsequent appearance of national and international guidelines for cholesterol lowering in coronary prevention. There has also been considerable development in the definition of cardiovascular risk, and the methodology for identifying high-risk patients. All of these aspects are addressed fully in the new edition. In addition, the book offers helpful summaries of the background biochemistry of lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis where relevant, putting the subject in the context of its pathophysiology and epidemiology. The text relating to clinical aspects has a strong evidence base, reviewing, in particular, areas of uncertainty and controversy. Drawing on the wealth of experience of the author, and representing his widely respected views on the subject, readers will find this comprehensive, well-referenced and accessible book invaluable.

L'ecografia nella patologia tiroidea

Teresa Rago, Aldo Pinchera
e altri

editore: Plus

pagine: 120

L'introduzione della ecografia nella pratica clinica ha profondamente modificato l'approccio al paziente con malattie della tiroide. L'esame ecografico, per l'immediatezza delle informazioni che fornisce, costituisce un utilissimo complemento all'esame clinico. L'ecografia permette infatti una misura oggettiva delle dimensioni di un gozzo e definisce i caratteri di noduli tiroidei palpabili; mette in evidenza noduli non palpabili e permette di selezionare quelli da sottoporre ad agoaspirazione; l'esame della ecostruttura tiroidea dà informazioni sulla possibile presenza di una tireopatia autoimmune. Al di fuori della tiroide l'ecografia precisa la presenza e le caratteristiche dei linfonodi nelle stazioni del collo,elemento essenziale nel monitoraggio dei pazienti affetti da carcinoma della tiroide. Si può dunque affermare che oggi l'ecografia costituisce uno strumento indispensabile all'approccio diagnostico di tutti i pazienti affetti da malattie della tiroide.

Dall'obesità al diabete. Insulino-resistenza e sindrome plurimetabolica. La gestione del paziente obeso-diabetico

Antonio Tiengo, Angelo Avogaro

editore: Mediserve

pagine: 178

Nella nuova edizione rivista e aggiornata alla luce delle attuali acquisizioni scientifiche, quest'opera si conferma come un testo di riferimento chiaro e sintetico in tema di obesità e diabete. Concisione e precisione rendono il manuale di agevole consultazione, sia nell'introduzione teorico-scientifica alle alterazioni metaboliche ed endocrinologiche che fanno dell'obesità un importante fattore predittore del diabete di tipo 2, sia nella descrizione puntuale e dettagliata della gestione medico-clinica del paziente obeso-diabetico. All'inquadramento dell'insulino-resistenza scatenata dal grasso viscerale, condizione subdola che riveste un ruolo primario nel passaggio dall'obesità al diabete, si affianca la trattazione dei fattori ambientali di rischio che predispongono l'obeso alla cosiddetta sindrome plurimetabolica e alla cardiovasculopatia. Vengono presentati gli approcci farmacologici e chirurgici al paziente obeso e le terapie da effettuare in caso di mancato compenso metabolico, ma si introduce anche il tema della prevenzione, attraverso la modifica dello stile di vita, la dieta e l'esercizio fisico. Infatti, l'approccio terapeutico globale del paziente con obesità e diabete deve mirare anche alla correzione di altri fattori di rischio, come l'iperlipidemia e l'ipertensione arteriosa, la cui presenza caratterizza appunto la sindrome plurimetabolica.

Endocrinology and Metabolism

A. Basu, L. Kennedy

editore: Clinical Publishing,an imprint of Atlas Medical Publishing Ltd

pagine: 272

One of a series of books in the series of "Problem Solving", this book presents a comprehensive case load of patient disorders seen by the general practitioner and endocrinologist.

This is then followed by clinical presentation and the reader is led through the logical work-up to reach a diagnosis. An algorithm accompanies most cases to provide a pictorial quick overview of the clinical steps. References are key but kept to a minimum. Each of the major areas of endocrinology are covered: thyroid, adrenal gland, pituitary, reproduction, growth and development, calcium and bone, endocrine hypertension, water, electroytes and glucose. The authors also conclude with a section on therapeutic aspects. The chief author, Professor Lee Kennedy, is a British expatriate, now in a leading clinical role in Australia. Lee has experience in numerous clinical areas and is involved with teaching medical students.

The Hormones of the Heart

Aldo Clerico, Michele Emdin

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 184

The rapid knowledge in the field of neuro-humoral regulation of cardiovascular pathophysiology is changing the picture of current diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients. The emerging conceptual revolutionary idea is that heart acts not as a pump, merely, but as a "gland", that is as a regulator of circulatory homeostasis and salt-water balance. Cardiovascular pathophysiology has to be written, indeed, on this basis: this physiology textbook gives an up-to-date description of the complexity and novelty of actual knowledge, with all its potential clinical implications.

The evidence base in diabetes is accumulating rapidly. Prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally, and it is increasingly managed by multi-disciplinary teams working across primary and secondary care. Health professionals working in diabetes need to keep up to date with recent developments. There has also been a boom in both the primary and secondary literature of diabetes. Textbooks and monographs abound which summarize the classic characteristics of the "typical" diabetes patient. Meanwhile the doctor treating individuals needs current information to enable him/ her to solve real life and everyday problems in the field. "Problem Solving in Diabetes" does just that. The authors have drawn on their clinical experience backed up by wide critical reading in the current primary literature to identify 50 problems and their solutions. Each case covers presentation, options, and an evidence-based management plan. This book will be an invaluable reference source to doctors in their everyday practice dealing with the specific problems of individual patients.
