A Clinical Guide to Inherited Metabolic Diseases

Joe T. R. Clarke

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 360

This user-friendly clinical handbook provides a clear and concise overview of how to go about recognizing and diagnosing inherited metabolic diseases. The reader is led through the diagnostic process from the identification of those features of an illness suggesting that it might be metabolic through the selection of appropriate laboratory investigation to a final diagnosis. The book is organized into chapters according to the most prominent presenting problem of patients with inherited metabolic diseases: neurologic, hepatic, cardiac, metabolic acidosis, dysmorphism, and acute catastrophic illness in the newborn. It also includes chapters on general principles, laboratory investigation, neonatal screening, and the principles of treatment. This new edition includes much greater depth on mitochondrial disease and congenital disorders of glycosylation. The chapters on neurological syndrome and newborn screening are greatly expanded, as are those on laboratory investigation and treatment, to take account of the very latest technological developments.

Lipid Disorders

Your Questions Answered

John Reckless, Jonathan Morrell

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 216

Most of us have heard of cholesterol but few realise how common it is to find abnormal blood levels. In truth, living in modern society, the majority of us have abnormal cholesterol levels and are potentially at risk from atherosclerotic disease. Sometimes raised levels are obvious, but in other situations the pattern of other blood lipids defines the risk and sometimes even apparently innocent levels benefit from modification. In just a few decades, health professionals have witnessed the emergence of the study of blood lipids from theoretical science to the forefront of everyday clinical practice. A number of clinical trials have demonstrated that lipid lowering saves lives and prevents heart attacks and strokes, and health professionals are charged with implementing their findings. For a number of reasons, the implementation of the evidence base has been slow but a series of initiatives including new guidelines and directives, involving new structures and pathways of healthcare, have been set in place to redress this. Inevitably, within an emerging and evolving discipline, a number of questions arise from interested health professionals and the public. At both personal and professional levels, this book aims, by answering a series of questions, to equip the reader with a comprehensive working knowledge of the subject. It is hoped, therefore, that the book will be useful to the range of health professionals who treat lipid disorders as well as the growing number of people who seek accurate, authoritative and unbiased information on which to base their personal health choices.

Diabetic Foot

Lower Extremity Arterial Disease and Limb Salvage

A. N. Sidawy

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 450

Understanding tibio-peroneal occlusive disease and its management is vital in treating patients with peripheral vascular disease. Occlusive disease and the resulting ischemia threaten the viability of the lower limb, particularly in diabetics. Edited by widely-respected vascular surgeon Anton N. Sidawy, this textbook explores all aspects of tibio-peroneal disease, including pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and management of the lower extremity after adequate circulation is restored. It examines risk factors, disease distribution, and general management issues connected with diabetic patients, as well as adjuvant chemotherapy to improve patency of prosthetic bypasses, thrombolytic therapy for failed bypasses, wound healing, and amputations of the foot and leg.

Thyroid Disease

A Case-based and Practical Guide for Primary Care

Emanuel O. Brams

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 172

Thyroid Disease: A Case-Based and Practical Guide for Primary Care, by Dr. Emanuel Brams, is a supremely readable cased-based approach to understanding the myriad of disorders that encompass thyroid disease. Using cases derived from his busy practice, Dr. Brams gives us the history and physical examination details of each case, along with test results. Then, through a series of questions similar to that which any good clinician asks while caring for a patient, Dr. Brams explains an optimal approach to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of thyroid disease, with an emphasis on the practical and common issues that primary care physicians see in their offices. This is an important book for primary care physicians because thyroid disease is common in the population we take care of and accounts for 3-5% of primary care visits. It is often cited as an area that primary care phy- cians find confusing. Dr. Brams clarifies thyroid disease and, through his generous sharing of cases, allows us to join him in making clear diagnoses as well as share in the ambiguity and decisions about approach when the diagnoses and course of treatment are not clear. In this way, the book is honest, and deals directly with the issues of thyroid disease as they are seen by us as physicians, not as we sometimes may wish they were seen if patients presented with the clarity of walking textbooks.

Thyroid Cancer

F. Grunwald, H. J. Biersack

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 386

"Thyroid Cancer" describes all current diagnostic techniques, including FDG-PET and MRI. In recent years, these modalities have documented hitherto hidden radioiodine-negative metastases, thus improving surgical therapy. The whole gamut of treatment, including surgery, radioiodine therapy, percutaneous radiation therapy and medical management, is covered. In some 10 per cent of differentiated thyroid cancers, the well-known treatment tools of surgery and radioiodine therapy are not sufficient. New treatment modalities such as high-dose radioiodine therapy, redifferentiation therapy with retinoic acid and recombinant TSH are therefore highlighted. In a special section devoted to medullary thyroid cancer, new imaging procedures such as octreotide scintigraphy are described. The second edition includes two new chapters, on I-124 PET and dosimetry. Other chapters have been modified particularly in view of the new UICC classification, with special regard to the definition of T1 tumors.

Gestione condivisa del paziente mellito tipo 2. Quali scelte terapeutiche

Carlo M. Rotella

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 96

Nel passato l'assistenza ai malati cronici avveniva con un modello medico-centrico, nel quale il sanitario era il principale attore dell'erogazione dell'assistenza. I modelli assistenziali più recenti prevedono un sistema operativo più complesso e articolato dove medico e paziente stringono un'alleanza terapeutica e contrattano i singoli eventi del rapporto interpersonale. In questo volume l'autore si è dedicato a esaminare in maniera più approfondita la cooperazione positiva tra medico di medicina generale e medico diabetologo. Lo scopo finale è dare un valore aggiunto al paziente diabetico in modo da garantire più anni alla vita e più vita agli anni.

Diabetes and the Kidney

Christoph Hasslacher, Sonja Bohm

editore: John Wiley & Sons Ltd

pagine: 146

Diabetes, when untreated, leads to damage to several organs within the body, particularly the kidneys. This damage may also go undetected for several years, until the later stages of kidney failure are reached, with a need for kidney replacement therapy - either dialysis or transplantation. Such progression is not inevitable. With good management, diabetes can be well controlled and kidney function can be maintained; to a certain extent, the damage can even be reversed. Diabetes and the Kidney is written for people with diabetes, their families and carers. It describes the function of the kidneys, the development of nephropathy, the ways to recognize it early and the correct way to manage it. The title emphasizes how people should take responsibility for their own health, with information on diet, giving up smoking and taking exercise. Clearly written description of kidney function, how it goes wrong in diabetic nephropathy and ways to prevent this. Guidance on diet, exercise and generally encouraging people to become involved in their own health care. Information on treatment of kidney disease and kidney replacement therapy.
