Endocrinologia e metabolismo

Elementi di endocrinologia

editore: Vita e Pensiero

pagine: 166

Il volume intende offrire tutte le informazioni scientifiche endocrinologiche necessarie a coloro che, non essendo specialisti in endocrinologia, operano in campo sanitario (medici, infermieri, ostetriche, dietologi) o sportivo. Pur nella complessità della materia, i capitoli si presentano semplici nell'esposizione senza rinunciare all'aggiornata precisione scientifica. Ciascuna ghiandola viene compiutamente descritta nei suoi aspetti fisiopatologia, sottolineando le interconnessioni fra i vari organi secretori, il sistema nervoso e il sistema immunitario. Si vuole in tal modo evidenziare il fondamentale ruolo endocrino nel fisiologico mantenimento della omeostasi dell'organismo, condizione essenziale per la salute.

Werner & Ingbar's The Thyroid

A Fundamental and Clinical Text

David S. Cooper, Lewis E. Braverman

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 912

Werner & Ingbar's The Thyroid: A Fundamental and Clinical Text, 10th Edition has been extensively revised and streamlined to deliver the most comprehensive coverage of the thyroid including anatomy, development, biochemistry, physiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of all thyroid disorders. Entirely new chapters on the surgical management of thyroid cancer, thyroid disruptors, and thyroid hormone analogs are in this edition. New authors and an international group of contributors elevate this classic text that includes extensive clinical coverage of thyroid dysfunction's effects on other organ systems. Also addressed are clinical controversies regarding the ageing thyroid, subclinical hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism and thyroid disease in pregnancy. New to this edition: twenty-three chapters authored by new contributors and international experts; a companion website with fully searchable text for quick reference; and three new chapters discuss surgical management of thyroid cancer, thyroid disruptors, and thyroid hormone analogs to keep you up-to-date on the latest advances in the field. "This is an update of the classic thyroid text and is clearly essential for endocrinologists and thyroid surgeons. It is certainly useful for those undertaking thyroid related research but it is clearly far too detailed for students other than those undertaking basic science research in the thyroid. This edition has added the surgical management of thyroid disorders which is clearly an asset for the endocrine surgeon. With this type of reference text it is inevitable that there will be information from many years ago cited. There has however been a clear effort to update information and expand detail including more up-to-date references - studies related to markers of disease progression in thyroid cancer, cytopathology of thyroid cancer. Studies and other works that are references are of high quality and in general integral to the subject matter being discussed. There has also been a clear effort made to critically appraise the texts being cited. In general it is well written. Sections of the book can be a little monotonous only due to the subject matter i.e. thyroid hormone synthesis and thyroglobulin structure, function and biosynthesis. The diagrams and illustrations particularly in the basic science section are very useful. The use of colour images would have made them a lot more pleasing on the eye. Only for those subspecializing in thyroid disorders or conducting research into the thyroid gland. This book has helped me to understand the thyroid gland further and will continue to do so. It is the type of book one consults to answer a specific question and to provide context for a clinical problem." (BMA Medical Book Award reviewer, 2013 BMA Medical Book Awards).

Le nuove risposte sul diabete

a cura di C. Berra, M. Mirani

editore: Pendragon

pagine: 85

"La cura di una condizione cronica come il diabete mellito implica per i pazienti una profonda modifica dello stile di vita e la necessità di un'autogestione consapevole e quotidiana della malattia. La dieta, l'attività fisica e la terapia farmacologica rappresentano i cardini del trattamento del diabete, ma solo se associate all'educazione terapeutica rendono possibile il raggiungimento degli obiettivi curativi fondamentali per il buon compenso e la riduzione del rischio delle complicanze croniche. Educare un paziente all'autogestione significa fornirgli le informazioni corrette riguardo la malattia e tutti gli aspetti ad essa correlati, far apprendere e utilizzare strumenti di autocontrollo della glicemia, del peso corporeo e dell'attività fisica per mettere in atto uno stile di vita salutare. Questo manuale risponde in modo perfetto al primo e fondamentale aspetto dell'educazione terapeutica: la corretta informazione. La struttura a domanda-risposta è la più idonea per aiutare il paziente nel percorso formativo. Le risposte, esaustive e semplici, sono valido strumento sia per le persone con diabete che per i loro curanti: infatti, un paziente correttamente informato è sicuramente e più facilmente posto nella condizione di evitare il fallimento terapeutico e attuare uno stile di vita corretto. Grazie quindi agli autori per il prezioso contributo che sarà sicuramente utile sia ai pazienti che al team diabetologico nella gestione ottimale del diabete." (Emanuela Orsi)

Thyroid Cancer

Glenn D. Braunstein

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 332

The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97 per cent, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part due to the widespread use of imaging modalities that detect thyroid nodules and microcarcinomas. Concurrently, there have been a number of recent advances in surgical treatment, as well as diagnostic modalities that allow us to detect small amounts of residual local and metastatic disease. Additionally, a reexamination of past treatment regimens has led to new recommendations regarding the use of radioactive iodine, and to new therapeutic options, such as targeted therapy which have supplanted the use of more toxic chemotherapy for metastatic cancer. Multiple academic organizations have developed consensus guidelines for the management of thyroid cancer, occasionally with conflicting recommendations. In "Thyroid Cancer", a renowned group of authors presents a broad overview of the pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of thyroid cancer, with an emphasis on recent evidence-based information. State-of-the-art and a significant contribution to the literature, "Thyroid Cancer" is an invaluable reference for endocrinologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, and surgeons who deal with head and neck cancer.
