Essentials of Interventional Cancer Pain Management

a cura di Amitabh Gulati, Vinay Puttanniah

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 530

This text provides a comprehensive review and expertise on various interventional cancer pain procedures. The first part of the text addresses the lack of consistency seen in the literature regarding interventional treatment options for specific cancer pain syndromes. Initially, it discusses primary cancer and treatment-related cancer pain syndromes that physicians may encounter when managing cancer patients. The implementation of paradigms that can be used in treating specific groups of cancer such as breast cancer, follows. The remainder of the text delves into a more common approach to addressing interventional cancer pain medicine. After discussing interventional options that are commonly employed by physicians, the text investigates how surgeons may address some of the more severe pain syndromes, and covers the most important interventional available for our patients, intrathecal drug delivery. Chapters also cover radiologic options in targeted neurolysis and ablative techniques, specifically for bone metastasis, rehabilitation to address patients' quality of life and function, and integrative and psychological therapies. Essentials of Interventional Cancer Pain Management globally assesses and addresses patients' needs throughout the cancer journey. Written by experts in the field, and packed with copious tables, figures, and flow charts, this book is a must-have for pain physicians, residents, and fellows.

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.

Trattamenti omeopatici di supporto in oncologia

Jean-Claude Karp, François Roux

editore: Edra

pagine: 36

Sia che si pratichi l'allopatia, sia che si pratichi l'omeopatia, la qualità di vita dei pazienti oncologici deve essere oggetto di attenzione da parte del medico. A questo proposito, i trattamenti di supporto devono essere somministrati con la stessa attenzione riservata ai trattamenti antitumorali specifici, per prevenirne al meglio gli effetti collaterali. In questo contesto l'omeopatia, che non può in alcun caso sostituirsi ai trattamenti convenzionali, si integra nell'ambito di una presa in carico multidisciplinare. La terapia omeopatica ci permette di fornire una risposta a molti problemi indotti dalla malattia oncologica o dai suoi trattamenti. In questo volume, gli autori forniscono un prezioso e aggiornato strumento di riferimento per poter affrontare il follow-up dei pazienti sottoposti a trattamento oncologico attraverso schede di facile consultazione, con una presentazione farmacologica di ciascun farmaco antitumorale, seguita dalla descrizione dei principali medicinali omeopatici indicati per gli effetti collaterali incontrati abitualmente e l'indicazione del trattamento da instaurare al più presto, se possibile prima di iniziare la chemioterapia.

Terapie palliative in oncologia. L'utilizzo di tecniche sub-invasive

Beniamino Palmieri

editore: Tecniche Nuove

pagine: 334

Questo libro descrive l'area terapeutica comprendente le cure palliative in campo oncologico esercitate con tipi diversi di strumenti scarsamente invasivi quali: radiofrequenze; elettroterapia ed elettrochemioterapia; crioterapia; laser terapia per infissione con fibra ottica della neoplasia; fototerapia con coloranti radiosensibili; infiltrazione intratumorale di principi attivi, chemioterapici, immunomodulanti; ipertermia in senso generale, locoregionale, focale; terapia locoregionale; terapia genica; terapia con anticoagulanti. L'autore passa in esame le diverse metodologie terapeutiche descrivendone i principi, le apparecchiature utilizzate e le modalità d'azione e riportando i lavori scientifici e le casistiche che ne descrivono i risultati. Si inizia con l'esame della risposta dei malati alle radiofrequenze in termini di riduzione della dimensione o distruzione di vari tipi di tumore, ricavando quindi linee di indirizzo sull'uso di questa tecnica. Si procede quindi passando in rassegna le altre varie tecniche e i possibili campi di azione. L'obiettivo è cercare di ottenere un miglioramento della qualità di vita del malato oncologico ed eventualmente anche un suo prolungamento. Il testo è rivolto a medici in generale e in particolare a operatori sanitari come palliativisti, anestesisti che lavorano nella terapia del dolore, personale degli hospice o che opera sul territorio nella terapia di malati terminali.
