Role of the Choroid Plexus in Health and Disease

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Role of the Choroid Plexus in Health and Disease
May 142020
 

This book highlights the importance of the choroid plexus, which forms the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier and is the site of the major production of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The authors show that this barrier is crucial for maintaining important compositional differences between the blood plasma and the CSF. The choroid plexus epithelial cells also prevent the spread of infectious agents and other blood-borne entities to the brain tissue.
Chapter topics range from the production of CSF by electrolyte regulation in the choroid plexus, to details on the selectively transporting nature of this barrier. Further, the authors elaborate on the important roles of CSF in sustaining brain health by providing hydration, solutes, and nutrients to the brain tissue. Readers will also learn how CSF circulates signaling molecules within the compartments of the brain and removes waste products from the brain tissue. Elucidating the regulation of these processes in the choroid plexus is not only important for the readers’ understanding of normal brain development and function, but is also crucial for resolving a variety of cerebral challenges that lead to brain edema, as well as developing treatments for diseases. The book discusses disease models like hydrocephalus, sleep disorders, and age-related dementia.
Its comprehensive coverage makes this volume a valuable resource for researchers in cell and neurophysiology, as well as graduate students of the neurosciences.

Heparanase: From Basic Research to Clinical Applications

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Heparanase: From Basic Research to Clinical Applications
May 142020
 

Written by internationally recognized leaders in Heparanase biology, the book’s eight chapters offer an opportunity for scientists, clinicians and advanced students in cell biology, tumor biology and oncology to obtain a comprehensive understanding of Heparanase’s multifaceted activities in cancer, inflammation, diabetes and other diseases, as well as its related clinical applications.
Proteases and their involvement in cancer progression have been well addressed and documented; however, the emerging premise presented within this book is that Heparanase is a master regulator of aggressive cancer phenotypes and crosstalk with the tumor microenvironment. This endoglycosidase contributes to tumor-mediated remodeling of the extracellular matrix and cell surfaces, augmenting the bioavailability of pro-tumorigenic and pro-inflammatory growth factors and cytokines that are bound to Heparan sulfate. Compelling evidence ties Heparanase with all steps of tumor progression including tumor initiation, growth, angiogenesis, metastasis, and chemoresistance, supporting the notion that Heparanase is an important contributor to the poor outcome of cancer patients and a validated target for therapy. Unlike Heparanase, heparanase-2, a close homolog of Heparanase, lacks enzymatic activity, inhibits Heparanase, and regulates selected genes that promote normal differentiation and tumor suppression. Written by internationally recognized leaders in Heparanase biology, this volume presents a comprehensive understanding of Heparanase’s multifaceted activities in cancer, inflammation, diabetes and other diseases, as well as its related clinical applications to scientists, clinicians and advanced students in cell biology, tumor biology and oncology.

Percutaneous and Non-fluoroscopical

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Percutaneous and Non-fluoroscopical
May 142020
 

This book provides an extensive discussion of echocardiography-guided percutaneous interventional techniques for clinical practitioners, including cardiologists, interventional physicians, surgeons and specialist training candidates. It allows readers to gain a thorough understanding of interpreting echocardiography-guided procedures, which not only protect patients from pain and other complications associated with conventional surgery, but also obviate the use of fluoroscopy or contrast agents and so avoid radiation damage and the risks of allergy or renal function impairment. Further, these procedures could help to save patients in areas lacking medical resources.
The book first demonstrates the substitution of transesophageal for transthoracic echocardiography to avoid intubation under general anesthesia, and then presents key technical and practical aspects of echo-guided percutaneous interventions for structural heart diseases, such as ASD, VSD, PDA, PS, MS, AS and CoA. Lastly, it explores the lessons learned in echocardiography, anesthesia and postprocedural management of echo-guided percutaneous interventions.

Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias

 Cardiovascular, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias
May 142020
 

Concise Guide to Pediatric Arrhythmias
Written by one of the foremost pediatric cardiologists in the UK, this essential new book is a clear, practical, highly visual guide to the recognition of arrhythmias and their management. This innovative new reference:
Covers the full range of arrhythmias encountered in pediatric patients
Presents each arrhythmia – from identification to management options – as well as showing how to make a precise non-invasive diagnosis from the ECG
Makes use of real ECG strips – not perfect redrawn examples – to show what readers will actually encounter in the clinical setting
In addition, the book discusses arrhythmias encountered in various clinical settings – early and late after operation, and in congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy – as well as brief overview of the use of invasive EP studies, catheter ablation, pacemakers and defibrillators.
Whereas other books on this important topic are aimed and tailored for the needs of experts in pediatric cardiology, this book is ideal for pediatricians, pediatric intensivists, trainees in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology and pediatric intensive care, as well as for clinical support staff involved in the cardiac care of children.

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle

 Orthopedics  Comments Off on Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle
May 142020
 

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle is a collection of procedures presented by experts and pioneers in foot and ankle surgery who share an interest in developing less invasive methods of treating disorders of the foot and ankle. Procedures described in detail in this text avoid extensive soft tissue dissection and minimize soft tissue complications while affording results equal to those reported using traditional extensile exposures.
These less invasive techniques may minimize post-operative stiffness and pain and shorten operative times and hospital stays. The minimally invasive procedures are not discussed in isolation; instead, they are compared and contrasted with open and arthroscopic methods. Moreover, the concise written text is complemented by a generous assortment of useful clinical photos, diagrams, and imaging studies.
