Epatologia

Epatite C. Problematiche attuali e nuove strategie terapeutiche

Cosimo Colletta

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 160

La disponibilità, nei prossimi anni, di nuovi e più potenti farmaci per l'epatite C avrà un impatto favorevole sulla cura delle persone affette da tale patologia. Soltanto attraverso l'aumento di efficacia dei farmaci antivirali sarà possibile migliorare i risultati clinici. Incrementando la probabilità di eradicazione virale al 75 per cento sarà possibile dimezzare la mortalità virus correlata. Tuttavia negli ultimi anni si è assistito a un calo dei pazienti "naive" che per la prima volta si sottopongono alla terapia antivirale. Oggi è noto che la prima causa del minor numero di trattamenti è dovuto la riduzione delle diagnosi. Il 25 per cento dei pazienti dichiara che il proprio medico ha sconsigliato gli accertamenti volti a giungere a una diagnosi eziologica dell'anomalia biochimica. Solo attraverso l'incremento del numero dei pazienti sarà possibile ridurre la mortalità per cirrosi ed epatocarcinoma. Lo scopo principale della seconda edizione di EPATITE C è quello di contribuire al superamento delle barriere che si frappongono al trattamento di questa malattia. Risultati di studi recenti confermano che la causa principale del ridotto numero di pazienti che si accostano al trattamento per la prima volta è rappresentata dal minore impegno diagnostico dei medici preposti a formulare.

La salute del tuo fegato. Prevenire e curare steatosi, epatite e cirrosi

Salvatore Ricca Rosellini

editore: SugarCo

pagine: 224

"La salute del tuo fegato" ci illustra le potenzialità della medicina moderna nel campo delle malattie del fegato e del trapianto. Con semplicità, i pareri autorevoli dei massimi esperti in questo settore si affiancano al calore delle testimonianze dei malati, dei loro familiari e all.umanità dei volontari. E consentono di comprendere come praticando sani stili di vita, applicando i chiari consigli qui forniti e porgendo attenzione ai bisogni degli altri si possa fare davvero tanto per la nostra salute. Le malattie del fegato sono molto diffuse e nonostante la prevenzione, le cure più moderne e le opportunità offerte dal trapianto continuano a essere causa di sofferenze. Nel libro, i concetti, le opinioni e i suggerimenti degli specialisti nelle malattie del fegato si fondono a quelli di chi ha vissuto la malattia sulla propria pelle, trovando la forza di dare una mano anche agli altri; a chi, meno fortunato, è rimasto indietro. E così l.intreccio virtuoso fra medicina e solidarietà è arrivato anche in Africa, fra il popolo del deserto che non ha ancora le risorse per combattere la povertà e contrastare la diffusione di queste malattie.

Il paziente con diabete ed epatopatia cronica

Alessandro Grasso

editore: SEEd

pagine: 128

La contemporanea presenza in uno stesso paziente di diabete mellito ed epatopatie croniche, benché piuttosto frequente, non ha avuto nella letteratura scientifica la stessa attenzione rispetto ad altre associazioni. Il libro analizza il ruolo patogenetico dell'insulino-resistenza, i rapporti tra obesità, sindrome metabolica ed epatopatie e l'associazione tra infezione da virus dell'epatite e diabete, fornendo ampia documentazione sull'importanza che deve essere posta da parte del medico nel ricercare precocemente i possibili segni di una complicanza metabolica nel paziente epatopatico o viceversa un possibile danno epatico nel paziente diabetico. L'approccio pratico rende il libro particolarmente utile a chi deve affrontare le quotidiane problematiche di inquadramento di pazienti polipatologici.

Malattie del fegato delle vie biliari e del pancreas

Giovanni Gasbarrini, Antonio Morelli

editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria

pagine: 601

"Quello di cui mi accingo a presentare, il volume dedicato alle "Malattie del fegato, delle vie biliari e del pancreas" nella sua rinnovata edizione, è stato un importantissimo documento per lo studio di intere generazioni di Medici, rappresentando un'opera in cui molte importanti Scuole italiane hanno insegnato, obiettivamente, lo stato dell'arte delle conoscenze, riportando, ad un tempo, la loro opinione e la loro esperienza. Negli ultimi anni le nozioni sulle malattie epato-biliari e pancreatiche, anche quelle da considerarsi essenziali per poter affrontare correttamente la diagnosi e la terapia della patologia di questi organi ed apparati, si sono più che decuplicate, e ciò, in particolare, negli studi epidemiologici e nello sviluppo delle tecniche morfologiche, biochimiche, radioimmunologiche e di biologia molecolare, nei campi della immunologia, della genetica e delle immagini, sulla base del progresso tecnologico che ha coinvolto la strumentistica e l'affinamento delle modalità della ricerca."

Primary Carcinomas of the Liver

Hero Hussain, Isaac R. Francis

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 254

Primary carcinomas of the liver are increasing in incidence in the developed world, probably due to dietary and environmental factors as well as the known role of infective agents such as Hepatitis C. They are usually diagnosed in the advanced stages and carry high morbidity and mortality. This volume summarises the latest developments in imaging of primary hepatic carcinomas, emphasising the multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients. In addition to extensive chapters on the radiological issues surrounding diagnosis and staging of the malignancies, individual chapters on epidemiology, pathology, and surgical and non-surgical treatment options are included. All treatment options are considered for both HCC and cholangiocarcinoma, including newer techniques such as TACE. Only by a well orchestrated multidisciplinary team approach including epidemiologists, diagnostic radiologists, hepatologists, oncologic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and pathologists can these complex malignancies be managed successfully.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations

Ralph H. Hruban, Syed Z. Ali
e altri

editore: Demos Medical Publishing

pagine: 208

Although there are a number of publications including pancreatic cytopathology, there is a void in current pathology literature for a practical and well-illustrated atlas. The atlas contains 450 high-resolution images (including images of the histopathologic and radiologic features of the lesions, which makes this volume equally attractive to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike). Clinical and radiologic examinations cannot reliably distinguish benign or inflammatory pancreatic disease from carcinoma. The increased use of pancreatic fine needle aspiration (FNA) along with advances in imaging techniques and the introduction of endoscopic ultrasound guidance have led to significantly better detection and recognition of pancreatic masses. Consequently, pancreatic cytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosis-yet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and 'look-alike' lesions. Skillful recognition and an awareness of the limitations of the procedure are essential in avoiding mis diagnosis of these dangerous lesions. "Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations" fills a void in current pathology literature. With 450 high-resolution images, including images of histopathologic and radiologic features, this practical atlas presents an integrated approach to diagnostic cytopathology that will help physician cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, and pathologists avoid potential pitfalls and 'look-alike' lesions. Written by recognized experts in the field, the extensive high-resolution color images of the characteristic features of pancreatic disease are presented with detailed descriptions that cover classic features, diagnostic clues, and potential pitfalls. "Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations" is a valuable resource for the seasoned cytopathologist, general and surgical pathologists, pathology trainees, and cytotechnologists.

Il virus dell'epatite B. Dall'antigene australia agli analoghi nucleos(t)idici

Alfredo Marzano

editore: SEEd

pagine: 128

Negli ultimi 10 anni sono stati fatti numerosi passi in avanti nella diagnosi e nella terapia dell'epatite B: sono stati introdotti in commercio nuovi farmaci e le terapie sono state tarate sulla base delle caratteristiche del paziente. Tuttavia l'interpretazione delle diverse condizioni virologiche e la gestione della malattia nel paziente immunocompetente e immunodepresso risultano talvolta complesse. In aggiunta, l'uso degli antivirali ha introdotto nuovi criteri, quali la potenza e la barriera genetica dei diversi medicamenti, strettamente correlati agli aspetti di farmacoresistenza. Il testo, ideato come un pratico strumento di utilizzo per il clinico, ha lo scopo di fornire aggiornamenti circa l'inquadramento clinico dell'infezione, la scelta della terapia adeguata e la gestione delle resistenze.

Epatiti virali. Dalla diagnosi alla terapia

Renato Bonardi, Marco Tabone

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 96

Le epatiti virali sono un'entità nosologica nota fin dall'antichità. Tuttavia, solo a partire dal XX secolo, si sono sviluppate conoscenze adeguate a una loro corretta diagnosi. Con l'ampliarsi delle acquisizioni scientifiche in campo virologico, i virus epatotropi hanno acquisito sempre maggiore importanza nella eziologia delle epatopatie croniche. Ancora oggi, pur con il miglioramento delle tecniche di sterilizzazione e di prevenzione in ambito sanitario, le infezioni virali risultano essere responsabili della maggiore parte delle forme di epatite cronica nel nostro Paese. Questo volume rappresenta un ausilio sintetico e di rapida consultazione per chi intende aggiornarsi sulle più recenti acquisizioni relative alla diagnostica e al trattamento delle epatopatie virali. A questo scopo gli autori hanno corredato il volume con una serie di tabelle riassuntive, grafici e algoritmi diagnostici. Inoltre sono stati ampiamente trattati i capitoli degli esami di laboratorio e strumentali per fornire un ulteriore ausilio al lettore.
