Nutritional Support of Cancer and Transplant Patients (Medical Intelligence Unit)

 Oncology  Comments Off on Nutritional Support of Cancer and Transplant Patients (Medical Intelligence Unit)
Feb 252018
 

Much has been learned, great developments have occurred, and so much has been written about cancer and transplantation in the last 2-3 decades. Yet, to the author’s knowledge, no monograph or book has addressed nutrition support of cancer and transplant patients together. Experts from the around the world have addressed the nutrition support in cancer and transplant patients in this unique monograph. The book is divided in two parts: Part I deals with nutrition support in cancer patients, including the specific role of nutrition on immunity, cancer cachexia, and the role of different substrates. Part II addresses nutrition in transplant patients. The first two chapters deal with the immunologic role of nutrition and cancer cachexia. Chapter 3 elegantly and extensively reviews the nutritional implications; its biochemistry and the role of one of the most studied amino acids in clinical practiceÑglutamine. This is followed by two chapters of nutrition support of patients with head and neck cancer and nutrition support of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Chapters 6 and 7 review the role of total parenteral nutrition on perioperative nutritional support and cell cycle kinetics. While the plasma amino acids profile in cancer patients and the role of L-methionine is addressed in great details in Chapters 8 and 9, the role of ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate administration on surgical, trauma and cancer-bearing patients is reviewed on Chapter 10. Part Two of this book starts with the review of nutritional support in small bowel transplantation. This Section elegantly describes the process of recovery of small bowel from the ischemia and preservation, weaning from parenteral nutrition support and establishment of normal diets. In addition monitoring techniques and the nutritional complications of surgical intervention is described. Chapter 12 on liver failure and liver transplant patients addresses hepatic encephalopathy and the role of certain amino acids, nutrition assessment techniques and metabolic changes following liver transplantation. Furthermore, it offers some practical advice on how to establish nutrition support routes in these very ill patients. Nutrition support in renal transplantation, including metabolic abnormalities in renal failure, are described on Chapter 13. This monograph ends with a Chapter on total parenteral nutrition in bone marrow transplant patients.

Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain

 Anatomy  Comments Off on Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain
Feb 232018
 

Masterful 2D and 3D head, neck, and brain dissections provide unsurpassed insights into head, neck, and brain anatomy

An internationally renowned and beloved author, educator, brain anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Professor Albert Rhoton has a special place in medical history. He was revered by students and colleagues and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern microscopic neurosurgery. A driving principle in his anatomy lab was the simple phrase, “Every Second.” This was embraced in his philosophy that every second of every day, a patient’s life was improved by a surgeon assisted by the anatomic knowledge his lab helped elucidate and distribute.

Rhoton’s Atlas of Head, Neck, and Brain is the visually exquisite crowning achievement of Dr. Rhoton’s brilliant career and unwavering dedication to the intertwined pursuits of surgical anatomy and neurosurgery. The atlas reflects the unparalleled contributions Dr. Rhoton made to the contemporary understanding of neurosurgical anatomy. Dr. Peris-Celda, with the collaboration of an impressive cadre of international multidisciplinary experts, worked closely under Dr. Rhoton’s tutelage on this project. This book is the culmination of 5 years of work and experience gleaned from more than 40 years of surgical anatomy research and exquisite dissection techniques performed in Dr. Rhoton’s laboratory.

Special Features

Each anatomic dissection meticulously labeled with English and Latin descriptors for easy cross referencing with other resources.
Multiple views of the most complex regions of the head, neck, and brain provide a deeper understanding of anatomy.
More than 600 anatomical images systematically organized in four major sections: Osteology of the Head and Neck; Face and Neck; Ear, Nose, Pharynx, Larynx, and Orbit; and Neuroanatomy and Cranial Base.
Superb 2D images presented in a large printed format to optimize the viewing experience.
3D digital images fully realize the beauty of the dissections and enhance the learning process.
Specimens injected with colored silicone provide better visualization of arteries and veins.
Breathtakingly stunning, this atlas is certain to be a treasured reference for medical students, residents, and clinicians specializing in neurosurgery, facial plastic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and craniofacial surgery for many years to come.

Drug Development and Rare Pediatric Diseases

 Pediatrics  Comments Off on Drug Development and Rare Pediatric Diseases
Feb 232018
 

Over the past few decades, a number of legislative actions have been taken to encourage the development of therapies to treat people affected by rare diseases and to encourage therapies for pediatric patients. During this same time period, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has invested substantial effort in support of these same goals. As described in this book, recent legislative actions have prompted new initiatives. Continuing the response to the laws’ specific requirements and FDA’s commitment under PDUFA, this book includes input from the public and FDA and discusses the many complex issues involved in medical product development for people with rare diseases. Following a brief overview of both legislative and FDA efforts over the years to foster development of therapies for these patients, the book summarizes the three days of the public meeting and presents FDA’s strategic plan for accelerating the development of the urgently needed therapies for pediatric rare diseases.

Hair Follicle: Differentiation under the Electron Microscope – An Atlas

 Dermatology  Comments Off on Hair Follicle: Differentiation under the Electron Microscope – An Atlas
Feb 232018
 

Each and every hair is much more than just the visible shaft―there are also associated complex sheath structures of epidermal and dermal origin. In the hair follicle, cells undergo a variety of differentiation processes, mostly depending on their layers and positions therein, and electron microscopy reveals a very complex architecture. The structure of a particular layer, such as Henle’s layer of the inner root sheath, is not uniform. Rather, cells drastically change during the course of differentiation. By simply comparing electron micrographs of cells of a layer at different degrees of differentiation, one can hardly recognize them as belonging to the same layer. As readers will see, this book contains many superb electron mic- graphs, from low-magni?cation panoramic views for orientation to hi- power views showing ultrastructural detail. Captions and schematic drawings are also very helpful in “reading” electron micrographs and – derstanding the structural detail. In this way, Dr. Morioka has succeeded in dissecting the complex hair follicle at the ultrastructural level.
