Pheochromocytomas, Paragangliomas and Disorders of the Sympathoadrenal System: Clinical Features, Diagnosis and Management

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Pheochromocytomas, Paragangliomas and Disorders of the Sympathoadrenal System: Clinical Features, Diagnosis and Management
Jul 192018
 

Providing a comprehensive review of the most up-to-date evidence, this book presents the latest biology, diagnosis and management for pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas and related disorders of the sympathoadrenal system. Many new areas, including genetic syndromes, have evolved, and these are insufficiently appreciated among practitioners. A discussion of the basics of catecholamine biology sets the stage for presentations of the pathology, clinical features, and diagnosis of these tumors, including localization and imaging.
Medical, anesthetic and surgical management of pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas follow, including case material. Additional chapters discuss pheochromocytoma in pediatrics and in pregnancy, both pure and hypoglycemia-associated autonomic failure, and the role of the sympathetic nervous system in hypertension.
These diseases are relatively rare, but many, if not most, go undiagnosed during life: If promptly diagnosed and appropriately treated, they are usually completely curable; if undiagnosed or mistreated, they are typically terminal. Bringing the most current knowledge to bear, Pheochromocytomas, Paragangliomas and Disorders of the Sympathoadrenal System will be a valuable resource for practicing endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, internists and endocrine fellows faced with diagnosing and managing these conditions.

Jul 182018
 

With malpractice insurance premiums on the rise, and insurance rates for the practicing anesthesiologist at an all time high, it is important, now more than ever, to have a single source reference related to both anesthesia and analgesia and how they both relate to dermatologic surgery. This book provides comprehensive coverage on the therapeutic usage of anesthesia and analgesia during dermatologic surgical procedures, providing basic concepts, as well as step-by-step descriptions of the various techniques involved.

Written by an international group of contributors, Anesthesia and Analgesia in Dermatologic Surgery:

– is the first book of its kind to present both anesthesia and analgesia techniques in a single source volume

– covers the basic principles of regional and local anesthesia with respect to anatomy, local anesthetic agents, and techniques

– examines new eutectic mixtures that penetrate through the skin’s membrane, enabling doctors to use analgesia over anesthesia for a wide range of superficial surgical procedures, including the harvesting of split skin grafts, laser surgery, electrosurgery, epilation, and skin biopsy

– discusses the use of nerve blocks as safer alternatives to local anesthesia

– contains a full chapter dedicated to the pediatric patient, and the specific concerns when relating anesthesia to the pediatric patient
