Aterosclerosi eziopatogenesi, prevenzione e trattamento

Francesco Broccolo

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 132

La placca ateromasica rappresenta l'elemento patogenetico principale di numerosi processi patologici a carico degli apparati cardiovascolare, cerebrovascolare e nefrovascolare. Al fine di prevenire e trattare tali patologie, che rappresentano, per frequenza nella popolazione generale, le principali cause di morte e disabilità nel mondo occidentale, appare necessaria la conoscenza dei principali meccanismi patogenetici alla base dello sviluppo della placca aterosclerotica. In questo volume viene presentata una sintesi aggiornata delle tematiche relative all'eziopatogenesi, alla prevenzione e al trattamento dell'aterosclerosi, dedicando ampio spazio al recente concetto di aterosclerosi come malattia infiammatoria e agli ultimi studi volti ad individuare una possibile eziopatogenesi infettiva del processo. Il testo vuole offrire una panoramica sulle attuali conoscenze e sulle nuove teorie formulate in questi ultimi anni. Quest'opera rappresenta pertanto uno strumento di rapido aggiornamento con spunti interessanti per eventuali approfondimenti.

John P. Deveikis

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 756

Neurointerventional radiology is evolving into a rarified and complex field, with more people today training to become neurointerventionalists than ever before. With these developments comes a need for a unified handbook of techniques and essential literature. In Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique, Mark Harrigan and John Deveikis present the first practical guide to endovascular methods and provide a viable reference work for neurovascular anatomy and cerebrovascular disease from a neurointerventionalist's perspective. This new gold-standard reference covers the fundamental techniques and core philosophies of Neurointerventional radiology, while creating a manual that offers structure and standardization to the field. Authoritative and concise, Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique is the must-have work for today's neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and interventional radiologists.

Neurovascular Medicine

Kenneth Maiese

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 592

Disorders of the nervous and vascular systems continue to burden the planet's population not only with increasing morbidity and mortality, but also with a significant financial drain through increasing medical care costs coupled to a progressive loss in economic productivity. For example, more than 500 million individuals suffer from nervous and vascular system disorders in the world that comprise both acute and chronic degenerative diseases such as hypertension, cardiac insufficiency, diabetes mellitus, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and Alzheimer's disease. Given the vulnerability of the nervous and vascular systems, identifying the cellular pathways that determine cellular function, injury, and longevity may significantly assist in the development of therapeutic strategies to either prevent or at least reduce disability from crippling degenerative disorders. With this objective, Neurovascular Medicine: Pursuing Cellular Longevity for Healthy Aging is intended to offer unique insights into the cellular and molecular pathways that can govern neuronal, vascular, and inflammatory cell function and provide a platform for investigative perspectives that employ novel "bench to bedside" strategies from internationally recognized scientific leaders. In light of the significant and multifaceted role neuronal, vascular, and inflammatory cells play during degenerative disorders, novel studies that elucidate the role of these cells may greatly further our understanding of disease mechanisms for the development of targeted treatments for a wide spectrum of diseases. The authors of this monograph strive to lay the course for the continued progression of innovative investigations and especially those that examine previously unexplored pathways of cell biology with new avenues of study for the maintenance of healthy aging and extended cellular longevity.

Recovery After Stroke

Bruce H. Dobkin, Julien Bogousslavsky
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 672

One third of people after stroke, having survived the first few weeks, return home with significant residual disability, and can therefore benefit from an active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme. This is a comprehensive guide to rehabilitation after stroke, in which leading international authorities set out the basic neuroscientific principles that underlie brain recovery, including chapters on neural plasticity and neural imaging, and describe appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the many different functional problems that can arise after stroke. These include movement disorders, sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, problems with continence and secual difficulties, and cognitive disorders. Also covered are measurement of disability and quality of life, assistive technology and vocational rehabilitation. It is therefore an essential handbook and reference for all members of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team, including medical personnel, therapists, clinical neuropsychologists and rehabilitation nurses.

Stroke Treatment and Prevention

An Evidence-based Approach

Graeme Hankey

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 536

Stroke is the third most common cause of death in the world and a major source of disability. This invaluable reference will provide clinicians caring for stroke patients with ready access to the optimal evidence for best practice in acute stroke treatment and secondary prevention. The author, who is a member of the editorial board of the Cochrane Stroke Review Group, describes all available treatments for acute stroke and secondary prevention, the rationale for using them and, where available, the highest level of evidence for their safety and effectiveness. Where level 1 evidence is not available, he offers advice on reasonable practice and information about current research. The evidence for each treatment is followed by the author's interpretations and the implications of the evidence in the care of stroke patients. This is therefore an essential resource for clinicians, translating into practice advances that have been made in the treatment and prevention of stroke and suggesting the most appropriate interventions.

Neurotropic Viral Infections

Carol Shoshkes Reiss

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 484

Viral infections of the central nervous system or neurotropic viruses are often lethal. These diseases range from polio and measles, to rabies, Varicella-zoster, Herpes, West Nile, Japanese encephalitis, and AIDS. Such infections have profound public health consequences, and the understanding of these diseases involves understanding the interaction between the nervous system and the immune system. This book shows each individual virus, discussing the diseases they cause and the mechanisms by which they cause and spread those diseases. Detection, treatment and prevention are also discussed. Included is coverage of novel and beneficial uses of neurotropic viruses for gene therapy and tumor lysis. Neurotropic Viral Infection has been written in a style suitable for a wide professional audience, and will appeal to anyone from graduate students and postdocs to clinicians and public health professionals.

N. Venketasubramanian Ramani, Robert Gan

editore: World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd

pagine: 200

There are numerous elaborate and comprehensive textbooks and guidelines on stroke. However, busy clinicians are constantly bombarded with new knowledge for an infinite number of medical conditions. It becomes a challenge for them to tease out the important information that will help guide them through the care of the patient they have right before them. This handbook is thus conceptualized with both the busy clinician and the stroke patient needing urgent treatment in mind. By providing only essential information in a standard and user-friendly layout, it assists clinicians in making real-time decisions quickly and effectively with actual step-by-step guides on specific issues relevant to the care of stroke patients.The use of this practical handbook is instinctive with the topics arranged in chronological order, simulating the actual clinical scenario from a prehospital setting, consultation in the emergency room, admission to the hospital, to secondary prevention in the clinic. With contributions from over 30 stroke experts in Southeast Asia, this handbook is widely applicable in different medical settings and will certainly appeal to stroke specialists, general practitioners, nurses, paramedics, and medical students alike.
