Integrative Rheumatology offers a new and much-needed perspective in disease and symptom management, blending conventional medicine with alternative approaches not typically included in a Western medical practice. While conventional treatments can provide considerable symptomatic relief and can even slow the progression of many rheumatologic conditions, integrative treatment incorporating lifestyle interventions, mind-body approaches, and practices such as acupuncture and meditation into conventional medical therapies can improve quality of life, reduce medication dosages, and are generally better tolerated. In this book, researchers and clinicians highlight specific gaps in conventional rheumatologic care and examine how alternative approaches may be ideally suited to address these missed opportunities. Here, the authors introduce topics not typically addressed in conventional rheumatology texts, including nutritional therapies, exercise, herbal medicine, mind/body approaches, Ayurveda, and energy medicine. The contributors, all of whom have a background in academic medicine, share the approaches that they have found most effective in their own practices, basing their work on the best scientific evidence available. Ultimately, an understanding of complementary and alternative approaches to healing can help clinicians care for their patients using the best proven therapies to modify disease progress and relieve pain and disability.

Thoroughly updated and now in full color, DeLisa's Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the "gold standard" in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is the most modern and comprehensive book in the field. It can serve as both an introductory book for residents and a comprehensive reference book for practitioners. One volume covers physical medicine, the other rehabilitation medicine. Physical medicine covers principles of diagnosis and management, therapeutic approaches, and the management of specific conditions. Rehabilitation medicine covers the evaluation of the rehab patient, managing the rehab patient, and rehabilitation strategies and interventions. This edition has eight new chapters including evidence-based rehabilitation; robotic therapies; emerging technologies and interventions; and neural repair and plasticity.

Although distant metastases are the most dreaded situation in the evolution of cancer of every organ, the medical literature has surprisingly given little attention to the anatomical relationship between the primary tumor and metastasic sites. Only risk factors, treatment possibilities, and survival results are extensively examined.
Stimulated by the occurrence in his practice of some puzzling and unexpected metastases, the author reviewed more than 12,000 references. He looked for anatomical relationships highlighting the relation between the location of the primary tumors and the particular patterns of metastasis observed. It would seem that the `pathways and flows' are apparently a more decisive factor in the implantation of the metastases than the `seed and soil' properties of the cancer cells and the metastatic site.
Aided by his colleague Dr. T. Geukens, M.D., the author includes original anatomical drawings, illustrating the sometimes unexpected pathways the cancer cells follow in order to reach the organs where they will become lodged and give rise to metastatic tumors. The subject has apparently not been exhausted in the literature and several ideas are given for further research.

The recent advances in neuroimaging techniques, particularly magnetic re- nance (MR), have greatly improved our knowledge of brain anatomy and related brain function. Morphological and functional investigations of the brain using high-definition MR have made detailed study of the brain possible and provided new data on anatomo-functional correlations. These studies have fuelled the interest in central nervous system imaging by clinicians (n- roradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists, and psych- trists) as well as biophysicists and bioengineers, who are at work on new and ever more sophisticated acquisition and processing techniques to continue to improve the potential of brain imaging methods. The possibility of obtaining high-definition MR images using a 3.0-T m- net prompted us, despite the broad existing literature, to conceive an atlas illustrating in a simple and effective way the anatomy of the brain and correl- ed functions. Following an introductory chapter by Prof. Pierre Rabischong, the atlas is divided into a morphological and a functional imaging section. The morphological atlas includes 3D surface images, axial, coronal, and sagittal scans acquired with high-definition T2 fast spin echo (FSE) sequences, and standard and inverted-contrast images. The MR scans are shown side by side with the corresponding anatomical brain sections, provided by Prof. Henri Duvernoy, for more effective comparison. The anatomical nomenclature adopted for both the MR and the anatomical images is listed in an jacket flap for easier consultation.

A comprehensive overview of recent advances, from current basic research and epidemiology, to novel therapeutic strategies and clinical management. Here, the leading scientists who have made major advances in the field provide up-to-date reviews and describe their current knowledge and concepts.
As such, this is the first volume to summarize the implications of the meningococcus genome-sequencing project, emphasizing the novel strategies in vaccine development. Following a look at the history, the authors go on to treat the epidemiology of meningococcal disease, as well as the genetics, structure and function of virulence factors. Further chapters cover cross-talk between meningococci and host cells, genomics and immunobiology.
The result is a standard handbook for all scientists working in the field. While aimed at advanced specialists in basic research, epidemiologists, public health workers, vaccine developers and clinicians, the book is equally appropriate as introductory reading for graduates embarking on their career in this field.

Atlas of Alzheimer's Disease (Hardcover)

By (author): Howard Feldman

The last 20 years have brought unprecedented new knowledge to our understanding of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and for the first time, approved symptomatic treatments. Authored by one of the world's leading authorities on the management of AD and related dementias, this highly illustrated Atlas of Alzheimer’s Disease describes the colorful history of the illness, its neuropathological basis from structural brain imaging and post-mortem studies, and its devastating effects on perception, cognition, communication, and social behavior.

In addition to an accurate and detailed historical perspective, the book provides a state-of-the-art review of current working hypotheses, diagnostic approaches, and treatments of AD. Many tables and illustrations help readers comprehend the scientific information provided, and the book places great emphasis on the increasingly identifiable risk factors for development of the disease, with a view towards prevention.
