Recurrent Implantation Failure: Etiologies and Clinical Management

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Recurrent Implantation Failure: Etiologies and Clinical Management
Apr 052018
 

This unique text discusses the wide range of causes and pathophysiologic conditions contributing to recurrent implantation failure (RIF) and the current treatment approaches to best approach this challenging patient population. Beginning with a presentation of the mechanism of normal implantation, the physiologic synchrony between embryo and endometrium, and the roles of both gametes and embryos in RIF, the book then examines the various genetic, immune and environmental factors involved. Abnormalities of the hematologic and endocrine system, as well as those of the anatomy and microbiome, are described in detail. Last but no less important, the psychological stress and treatment of patients experiencing RIF is discussed.
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) success has increased substantially over the past three decades. However, despite these advances, recurrent implantation failure is still a common issue confronting patients and clinicians, and RIF represents one of the greatest challenges in ART and remains a source of frustration and disappointment for patients, clinicians, and researchers involved in the process. Providing an in-depth investigation into the pathophysiology and biological mechanisms of RIF and its clinical management, this will be an excellent resource for reproductive endocrinologists and infertility specialists.

Apr 042018
 

The Essential Guide to Recognizing and Treating Acute Endocrine and Metabolic Illness

Endocrinology covers some of the most common conditions and serious public health challenges facing medicine today, and endocrine and metabolic emergencies constitute a large proportion of the clinical workload. Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies: A Clinician s Guide provides a singular reference to help endocrinologists, acute and general medicine clinicians, hospitalists and critical care physicians, and general practitioners recognize the symptoms of endocrine emergencies and provide the highest standards of care. Already the definitive and most comprehensive guide to endocrine emergency care, this new second edition: provides acute care guidance for a range of both common and unusual endocrine emergencies; details the effects of acute medical and critical illness on metabolic and endocrine systems, and their impacts on endocrine investigations; discusses special patient populations, including the impacts of aging, pregnancy, transplantation, late–effects, perioperative, inherited metabolic disorders and HIV/AIDS on presentation and management; and features detailed coverage of disorders by system, as well as, metabolic bone diseases, neuroendocrine tumors, and more.

Packed with case studies, images, and chapters written by distinguished authors, this guide is designed for both quick reference and study. Coverage includes the presentation, diagnosis, management, and treatment of endocrine and metabolic disorders in an acute care setting, as well as the most up–to–date guidance on issues including clinical lipidology, glucose, sodium, calcium and phosphate, and more.

Blending the latest science with clinical and practical advice, this invaluable resource helps clinicians stay up to date with the field s relevant body of knowledge while providing the practical, clinical insight they need in order to provide their patients with the utmost level of care.

Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and the Adipose Organ: A Pictorial Atlas from Research to Clinical Applications, Second Edition

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and the Adipose Organ: A Pictorial Atlas from Research to Clinical Applications, Second Edition
Mar 232018
 

This richly illustrated book provides a detailed description of the gross anatomy, light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy of the adipose organ, which comprises subcutaneous and visceral fat depots. Findings in mice of differing genetic backgrounds (obesity prone and resistant) and maintained in standard and various physiologic and pathologic conditions are presented.
The latter conditions include chronic cold exposure, warm exposure, fasting, pregnancy–lactation, and obesity. Features of the fetal adipose organ are described in a separate chapter, and results from transgenic mice are also presented when relevant. The human adipose organ is addressed in several chapters that include magnetic resonance and fetal findings. Most of the results regarding the adipose organ anatomy in different physiologic conditions are new, and the story of pink adipocytes (white-to-pink transdifferentiation) is quite innovative. The concept of using browning of the adipose organ as a therapeutic tool for obesity must take into consideration the anatomic and morphologic aspects described here, and the study of pink adipocytes could lead to a better comprehension of breast cancer tumor biology. This book will be of interest to all scientists who deal with obesity and related disorders.

Mar 132018
 

This well-illustrated book, now in a revised and updated second edition, is an up-to-date practical guide to the integration of nuclear medicine into the daily practice of endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, oncologists, and other professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders. The new edition includes information on novel tracers and procedures as well as updates on management guidelines and protocols. The focus is especially on the contributions of SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI in endocrinology. An opening section discusses general aspects of nuclear medicine, such as dosimetry, radiation protection, and choice of radiopharmaceutical. The role of nuclear endocrinology in diagnosis and treatment of different pathologies is then addressed in a series of chapters focusing on the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands, the ovaries and testes, and neuroendocrine tumors. An important feature is the inclusion of informative clinical cases that highlight key aspects of practice. The book amply demonstrates the ability of modern nuclear medicine procedures to improve the care of patients with endocrine disease.
