Antimicrobial Chemotherapy

Guy Thwaites, Mark H. Wilcox
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 450

Antimicrobial agents are essential for the treatment of life-threatening infections and for managing the burden of minor infections in the community. In addition, they play a key role in organ and bone marrow transplantation, cancer chemotherapy, artificial joint and heart valve surgery. Unlike other classes of medicines, they are vulnerable to resistance from mutations in target microorganisms, and their adverse effects may extend to other patients (increased risk of cross-infection). As a consequence, there is a constant requirement for new agents, as well as practices that ensure the continued effective prescribing of licensed agents.The fully revised and updated seventh edition of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy is an essential guide to the principles of antimicrobial chemotherapy, the problem of resistance and its control through policies, antimicrobial stewardship and surveillance. The book provides an aid to informed, rational prescribing for common bacterial, fungal, parasitic and viral infections. Divided in five parts, the book cover issues specific to both the developed and developing world. Part 1 'General property of antimicrobial agents' discusses mechanisms of action and resistance to antibacterial, antifungal antiprotozoal, antiviral, and antiviral agents. Part 2 'Resistance to antimicrobial agents' provides guidance about the problem of resistance, mechanisms of acquired resistance and genetics of resistance. Part 3 'General principles of usage of antimicrobial agents' analyses the use of the laboratory, general principles of the treatment of infection, dosing in special groups (extremes of age, pregnancy, obesity), safe prescribing, prophylaxis and the role of policies in antimicrobial stewardship. Part 4 'Therapeutic use of antimicrobial agents' provides advice about the treatment of common infections which are described by anatomical. There are also chapters on the management of mycobacterial disease, viral infections, HIV/AIDS and parasitic infections. The final part of the book analyses the development and marketing of antimicrobial drugs.This seventh edition of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy continues to be a valuable resource for undergraduates and graduates requiring a thorough grounding in the scientific basis and clinical application of these drugs.

Benign Tumors of the Liver

Francesco Cetta, Gianfranco Ferla
e altri

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 337

Diagnosis of benign liver tumors is experiencing exponential growth, mainly owing to the diffusion of more accurate imaging techniques. This monograph examines the epidemiology, histopathology and genetics of these tumors and provides a systematic overview of their evolution and differential diagnosis. Care is taken to document surgical indications accurately, with a view to assisting in the avoidance of useless interventions. Open, laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques are described and illustrated, emphasizing the optimization of intra- and postoperative management in order to avoid potential complications and degeneration. In these chapters, attention is drawn to the ways in which the surgical management of benign liver tumors differs from that of malignant tumors. The book concludes by examining the role of interventional radiology in patients with benign liver tumors.

Noncolorectal, Nonneuroendocrine Liver Metastases

Diagnosis and Current Therapies

Isidoro Di Carlo

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 214

This book offers a complete overview on non colorectal non neuroendocrine (NCRNNE) liver metastases and describes in detail the currently available therapies. Each chapter focuses on the treatment of metastases from a particular primary malignancy and also provides valuable information on incidence, natural history and diagnosis. NCRNNE liver metastases are rare entities compared with colorectal and neuroendocrine metastases, for which the treatments are well codified. While more publications have appeared on the topic in recent years, an in-depth study has to date been lacking. Furthermore, most published series are insufficiently comparable as they comprise patients with NCRNNE hepatic metastases from a variety of primary malignancies and consequently overlook differences in tumor behavior, frequency of isolated hepatic metastases, response to neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy and interval between diagnosis of the primary tumor and the liver metastases. This book, with its more specific approach, will serve not only as an up-to-date guide to diagnosis and treatment but also as a reference on which to base future studies.

Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology

Constantine P. Karakousis

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 591

This volume is the product of the author's long experience with melanomas and sarcomas and to a lesser but significant degree with upper gastrointestinal cancers, colorectal and breast cancers. As such, it offers a "hands-on" practical guide to approaching complex soft-tissue tumors and for performing more extensive tumor resections based on over 40 years of surgical experience. It provides important details about the positioning of patients, incision types, and exposure which can be of paramount importance in the resection of certain tumors. The book contains important general surgical principles for approaching tumors in a variety of locations but also offers the detail necessary for the safe and oncologically sound resection of these malignancies. Moreover, this operative atlas contains specific information for procedures which are not as commonly encountered in surgical training, but can be invaluable in the management of patients with locally aggressive tumors, such as hemipelvectomy and its variants, sacral resections, and forequarter amputation. Through the use of multiple detailed illustrations, Atlas of Operative Procedures in Surgical Oncology serves as a valuable resource to the general surgeon or surgical oncologist in the operative management of patients with cancer in the abdomen, retroperitoneum, pelvis or extremities.

La complessità che cura. Un nuovo approccio all'oncologia

Ivan Cavicchi, G. Mauro Numico

editore: Dedalo

pagine: 298

Complessità e gravità, in ambito oncologico, sono concetti da non confondere. I tumori sono indubbiamente gravi complicazioni naturali, ma a renderli complessi sono le persone che ne sono affette e, di conseguenza, la loro condizione esistenziale. L'intimo nesso tra malattia ed esistenza, se adeguatamente compreso, elaborato e trasformato in un'idea più avanzata di oncologia, può diventare una formidabile risorsa, utile sia ai malati che agli oncologi. Questo libro, partendo dalle opportunità terapeutiche oggi disponibili, intende spiegare come la complessità del malato di tumore possa contribuire a una sua cura migliore. La complessità implica un problema ma anche la sua soluzione, è insita nella malattia ma anche nel malato e nel medico. Una visione semplificata o parziale del malato di tumore priva l'oncologia di tutta una serie di possibilità. Scopo dell'opera è quello di creare i presupposti affinché l'oncologia possa servirsi proficuamente del malato quale essere e persona, facendone un coautore della cura, dunque il principio terapeutico più importante.

L'accompagnamento del paziente oncologico. Il ruolo del medicinale omeopatico

Michèle Boiron, François Roux
e altri

editore: Edra

pagine: 176

I trattamenti antitumorali comportano numerosi effetti collaterali e i pazienti si rivolgono sempre più alle terapie di supporto per migliorare la propria qualità di vita. L'omeopatia figura al primo posto tra le medicine complementari utilizzate. Poter consigliare o prescrivere un trattamento omeopatico adatto è un reale vantaggio per i professionisti della salute. Ma è necessario individuare quali effetti collaterali possono essere gestiti e soprattutto con quali farmaci omeopatici. Il testo è una guida pratica che risponde esattamente a questa esigenza. Il testo è suddiviso in 5 sezioni a seconda dei diversi ambiti di utilizzo e ogni patologia descritta è accompagnata da note di fisiopatologia, da un albero decisionale e da casi clinici che guidano il lettore dai sintomi alla prescrizione.
