La vescica neurologica e le disfunzioni autonomiche dell'area sacrale ovvero la neuro-urologia
editore: Minerva Medica
La neuro-urologia è un campo della medicina in cui ancora più di altri il ragionamento clinico trova ampio spazio, in ragione della variabilità delle cause patologiche e delle loro espressioni fisiopatologiche che giungono a creare la alterazione della funzione del basso tratto urinario. Il libro è strutturato in capitoli, dedicato ciascuno ad una delle comuni o anche meno comuni patologie neurologiche con le sue conseguenze sul sistema urinario. Ogni capitolo è articolato in una breve presentazione della patologia, a favore di specialisti non neurologi, seguito dalla disamina delle disfunzioni vescico-sfinteriche riscontrabili nella stessa e infine da un breve “to Remember”. Ma il vero to remember è ciò che traspare da tutto il libro, che riporta al centro dell’attenzione lo studio del singolo paziente e quel rapporto tra l’uomo, il medico, chiamato a ragionare sull’uomo e per l’uomo, e il paziente, nella sua peculiarità e umanità.
A Case-Based Approach to Practical Management
a cura di Jianguo Cheng
editore: Oxford University Press Inc
Neuropathic pain is one of the most common, most debilitating, most costly, and most difficult to treat categories of chronic pain conditions that are characterized by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system. Managing neuropathic pain is challenging and requires skillful assessment and comprehensive and integrated treatment strategies that are mechanism-guided, evidence-based, and individualized. However, these critical and integral elements are very fragmented in the current literature. The mechanistic understanding of neuropathic pain is typically found in basic research articles. Clinical research evidence is presented in forms of clinical trials with emphasis on minimizing biases such as those from patient selection and assessment. Individualized considerations for each patient are usually presented in case reports and problem-based learning discussions. This book overcomes these barriers and integrates all the critical elements around individual patient care into a coherent management strategy that is practical and applicable to daily clinical practice. Rather than compiling what have been published in the literature, this work emphasizes on identifying and highlighting the key points or findings that guide decision-making in clinical practice. It integrates the key points around a typical case scenario that not only represents the core of the diagnostic and therapeutic processes but also allows introduction and differentiation of painful conditions that bare similarities with the case in hand. The overarching goal is to improve clinical outcomes through better understanding of the mechanisms, more accurate diagnosis, and wiser and more comprehensive treatment strategies.

I tic nei bambini. Programma di intervento cognitivo-comportamentale
Cara Verdellen, Jolande Van De Griendt
Il volume presenta un protocollo cognitivo-comportamentale per il trattamento dei tic in bambini di età compresa tra i 6 e i 13 anni, affetti da sindrome di Gilles de la Tourette o da altri disturbi da Tic. Presenta un manuale per il terapeuta per la somministrazione e la supervisione del programma; le sessioni di attività per il bambino con schede, checklist, esercizi e compiti per casa e altri materiali fotocopiabili; le indicazioni per i genitori per supportare l'intervento a casa. L'intervento ruota attorno a due training: l'Exposure and Response Prevention prevede 12 sessioni in cui vengono affrontati contemporaneamente tutti i tic che presenta il bambino. Obiettivo principale è allenarlo alla spiacevole sensazione che precede i tic e cercare di sopprimerli il più a lungo possibile; l'Habit Reversal Training si articola in 10 sessioni in cui i tic vengono affrontati uno a uno. Obiettivo principale è che il bambino impari ad attuare dei comportamenti competitivi e antagonisti al tic per impedire che continui a manifestarsi.

The Blood-Brain Barrier in Health and Disease Vol. 2
Pathophysiology and Pathology
editore: Productivity Press
Located at the interface between blood and the brain, the blood-brain barrier is a dynamic permeability barrier formed by a continuous layer of specialized endothelial cells endowed with important permeability, transport, and regulatory functions that both protect the internal milieu of the brain and allow essential nutrients to be transported into the brain. Abnormalities of the blood-brain barrier are increasingly recognized as a key component in the pathogenesis of a range of primary diseases of the brain and the secondary involvement of the brain from pathological processes in other organs. In The Blood-Brain Barrier in Health and Disease, Volume 2, international experts present comprehensive reviews and research accounts on blood-brain barrier dysfunction in infectious and inflammatory diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, stroke, trauma, vitamin deficiency, exposure to neurotoxicants, primary and metastatic brain tumors, and neurodegenerative diseases. This book is intended to serve as a guide and reference to basic and advanced information for researchers, students, and clinicians interested in this fast-expanding field and stimulate further research well into the future.

editore: SBC Edizioni
Il prof. Umberto Tirelli è direttore del Dipartimento di oncologia medica, primario della divisione di oncologia medica a al centro di riferimento oncologico (CRO), Istituto nazionale tumori di Aviano (Pordenone). È stato il primo in Italia a studiare la Sindrome da Fatica Cronica (CFS). Benché descritta già negli anni Novanta, proprio dal prof. Tirelli, la sindrome da fatica cronica è ancora poco conosciuta a livello normativo e ufficiale e spesso anche i medici non la prendono nella giusta considerazione. Questo libro aiuta in maniera semplice e efficace a comprenderne i sintomi inquadrandoli in un corretto percorso terapeutico.
Imaging in Neurodegenerative Disorders
editore: Oxford University Press
Diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases can prove particularly intimidating to clinicians, because many times the diagnosis cannot be critically "confirmed" by a simple test. New imaging modalities have advanced to the point of high resolution, morphological, metabolic and functional analysis. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging have recently emerged as outstanding non-invasive techniques for the study of the neurodegenerative disorders. Imaging in Neurodegenerative Disorders covers all the imaging techniques and new exciting methods like new tracers, biomarker, metabolomic and gene-array profiling, potential for applying such techniques clinically, and offers present and future applications as applied to the neurodegenerative disorders with the most world renowned scientists in these fields. This book is an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, and trainees in neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry, and radiology.
