Progress in Medicinal Chemistry (Volume 46) 1st Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Progress in Medicinal Chemistry (Volume 46) 1st Edition
Oct 022022
 

Appropriate selection of biochemical targets is one of the most important drivers of cost effectiveness in the discovery of new medicines. Despite the many advances in genetics, genomics and systems biology, ‘validation’ of a target is not achieved until therapeutic efficacy is demonstrated by a drug candidate. Volume 46 of this series reviews the medicinal chemistry aimed at six diverse targets from which important new medicines are emerging:
* HIV integrase (discovery of the first-in-class inhibitor drug raltegravir)
* 11-beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (new approach to glucocorticoid regulation)
* Nicotinic a7 choline receptor (agonists and positive allosteric modulators).
* Bradykinin receptor (new approach to pain therapy)
* Histone deacetylase (new drugs for cancer)
* 5-HT2c receptor modulators (various CNS indications)

 Internal Medicine, Uncategorized  Comments Off on Mechanisms of Clinical Signs 2nd Edition
Oct 012022
 

2016 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in the Medicine Category!

 

What causes that condition?

 

What does it mean?

 

Organised by body system, Mechanisms of Clinical Signs, 2nd Edition explains the underlying mechanism and value of the clinical signs you are expected to know, and the conditions they indicate. Each chapter contains descriptions of clinical signs, a list of the conditions they are associated with (what conditions the signs indicate), an explanation of the mechanism and the ‘value’ of those signs (how reliable they are as an indication of a condition).

 

There is a uniform set of subheadings for each sign:

 

Description

Condition/s associated with

Mechanism/s

Sign value

The explanations for the mechanisms underlying each sign are brief but accurate and informative, and provide sufficient information for the reader to understand the mechanism:

 

Signs are ordered alphabetically within each chapter outlining a specific body system.

Extensive reference lists of up-to-date literature strengthen the authority of the content.

Video and audio content presents real life evaluation scenarios of clinical signs.

Clinical Pearls highlight the main signs which students and trainees should look out for to help them identify conditions with which the patients present.

A Student Consult eBook is available with the purchase of a print book, and provides access to a total of 200 multiple choice questions covering the 7 body systems, to test students and trainees’ knowledge of the content.

The eBook contains links to audio and video examples of particular signs which have to be heard or observed over a period of time in order to be identified correctly, e.g. Agonal respiration in Chapter 2 Respiratory Signs.

New images are added to depict clinical signs where no images were present in the previous edition.

Surgery of the Brainstem 1st Edition

 Surgery  Comments Off on Surgery of the Brainstem 1st Edition
Sep 292022
 

The ultimate guide to navigating and treating brainstem pathologies from master neurosurgeon Robert Spetzler

 

The brainstem is one of the last bastions of surgical prohibition because of its densely packed ascending and descending tracts and nuclei carrying information to and from the brain. Although 10% of all pediatric tumors and 5% of all vascular anomalies occur in the brainstem, neurosurgeons have traditionally resisted dissecting lesions in this area. Recent advances in imaging, microscopy, anesthesia, and operative techniques have expanded the treatment paradigm for this most eloquent region of the brain.

 

Surgery of the Brainstem, by internationally renowned neurosurgeons Robert F. Spetzler, M. Yashar S. Kalani, and Michael T. Lawton, along with an impressive cadre of global experts, is a comprehensive guide to managing disorders of the brainstem, thalamic region, and basal ganglia. Organized in seven sections with 33 chapters, the text opens with four sections covering a variety of topics. Section I presents the history of brainstem surgery; Section II examines anatomy, development, and pathology; Section III reviews patient examination, imaging, and monitoring; and Section IV provides a succinct overview of surgical approaches. Sections V-VII cover a wide range of adult and pediatric tumors, ischemia, stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and cerebral cavernous malformations. More than 300 high-quality clinical images and medical illustrations enhance the text.

 

Key Highlights

 

A full spectrum of treatment modalities and outcomes, including open surgery, endoscopic approaches, stereotactic radiosurgery, radiotherapy, endovascular techniques, and revascularization

An anatomy chapter featuring stunning Rhoton-style anatomical dissections delineates critical landmarks in the brainstem, thalamus, pineal region, and cranial nerves

Detailed discussion of patient positioning and exposure of various brainstem domains

Pearls on overcoming psychological, pathological, and anatomical barriers and managing complications

Understanding the basic anatomy, pathology, and clinical complexities of the brainstem and thalamic regions is essential for safe navigation and treatment. This remarkable book will provide neurosurgeons with additional insights on performing resections and achieving the best possible outcomes for patients with pathologic conditions in this delicate region.
