  1. Apomorphine in Parkinson's disease

    Apomorphine in Parkinson's disease

    Jonathan Timpka, Per Odin, Peter Hagell
    Buch  
    2020, 96 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1580-3
    Apomorphine is one of the oldest and, at the same time, most potent drugs for the treatment of Parkinson´s disease. Its use was for decades inhibited by the occurrence of dopaminergic side effects and the lack of practical equipment for its delivery. But we learned how to reduce the side effects of apomorphine. And the subsequent development of suitable injection pens and portable pumps has made apomorphine a practically useful therapeutic option. With the fourth edition of this book, the authors give a compact and comprehensible overview of apomorphine in Parkinson´s disease and practical guidelines for its use associated with the hope that this fascinating drug and excellent therapy can be made available to more Parkinson patients.

  2. Glaucoma and Dry Eye

    Glaucoma and Dry Eye

    Prof. Dr. Carl Erb, Augenklinik am Wittenbergplatz, Berlin
    Buch  
    2020, 128 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-2405-8
    Eight years have passed since the first English edition in 2011 and the topic of this textbook has lost none of its clinical significance. The coexistence of a dry eye can severely affect glaucoma patients in their daily lives. The associated consequence is reduced adherence in the use of antiglaucomatous eye drops, which represents a significant risk factor for the progression of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. In this respect, this complex interplay between glaucoma disease and dry eye is very important in practical everyday life. Sometimes it is not easy to get both diseases under control. The present new edition should help to understand this problem a bit better and to provide the affected patients as optimally as possible. Learn More

  3. Retinal vessel analysis - a new method of diagnostics and risk prediction

    Retinal vessel analysis - a new method of diagnostics and risk prediction

    Prof. Dr. Henner Hanssen and Dr.-Ing. habil. Walthard Vilser
    Buch  
    2019, 64 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1576-6
    Shortly after the introduction of the ophthalmoscope in the 19th century, ophthalmologists observed the blood vessels of the retina and noticed that there were changes in the caliber of the blood column and in the structure of the vessel walls of arteries and veins, especially in connection with systemic diseases such as hypertension or diabetes. From there it was still a stony but fascinating way to the successful breakthrough of retinal vessel analysis visible in this book. It will give an up-to-date overview on the interdisciplinary scientific and clinical application of this new microvascular diagnostic method in cardiovascular prevention to optimize risk stratification and potentially facilitate treatment guidance.

  4. Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)

    Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)

    Alex Straumann, Chairman Swiss EoE Research Network, Olten
    Buch  
    2019, 96 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-2401-0
    Nearly 25 years have passed since eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) has been recognized as an own, distinct entity. Initial doubts about the existence of this new disease were quickly eliminated by its dramatic increase. Despite intensive research activities with meanwhile more than 300 scientific publications per year, essential questions of pathogenesis and therapy are still unclear today. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to draw up an interim balance. The purpose of this 2nd edition is to summarize the key parameters of EoE in an understandable way to empower clinicians to care for EoE patients. Learn More

    Cell protection - detoxification - prevention: The health significance of glutathione

    Dr. Udo Böhm and Friedrich Reuss
    Buch  
    2019, 96 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1575-9
    Glutathione is an indispensable component of the body's own redox and detoxification systems for breaking down radicals and other chemical pollutants. This textbook shows the current state of science and the study situation as well as the possibilities for the use of glutathione and its precursors in medical everyday life. On the one hand, it serves as a source for the understanding of the diverse effects of this substance and as an argumentation aid against unobjective criticism and, on the other, as an indispensable tool for the successful use of glutathione in clinical practice.

  6. Medical treatment and operative repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms

    Medical treatment and operative repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms

    Dr. Jörg Teßarek, Department for Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Vascular Center Emsland Bonifatius Hospital, Lingen
    Buch  
    2017, 112 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1548-3
    The understanding of aneurismal disease has changed since the first description of an aneurysm by Vesalius in the 16th century. An aortic aneurysm independent from its extent is a strong marker for concomitant vascular diseases requiring further diagnostic steps and a dedicated therapy to reduce the risk of rupture and non aneurysm related death. During the last 60 years strong efforts have been undertaken to determine the best therapeutic options and to further reduce the risk of any of the operative strategies available today. This includes preoperative diagnostic steps, perioperative optimization of medical treatment and the choice of the most suitable operative approach, which might be either open surgery (OAR) or endovascular repair (EVAR/FEVAR). Aneurysm treatment will remain a team challenge and it mandates the highest level of the Rasmussen learning model: identification, analysis, planning, decision making, performance, feedback, problem analysis and solution. This more practically than scientifically orientated textbook presents the different options and pitfalls of aneurysm treatment based on the current guidelines and recommendations derivable from recently published scientific papers, studies and multicentric studies.

  9. State-of-the-art Treatment of Heart Failure

    State-of-the-art Treatment of Heart Failure

    Prof. Dr. Dietrich Strödter and Dr. Frans Santosa
    Buch  
    2017, 318 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1520-9
    Heart failure is a syndrome with various aetiologies and a poor prognosis. New pathophysiological findings have led to treatment strategies with improved prognosis. For want of a causal treatment option the focus lies on drug strategies. In addition, surgical or other procedures come into consideration. All these treatment strategies are presented in detail, analysed and evaluated with reference to the pathophysiology and study data. An assessment is also made regarding the European (ESC) and US guidelines (ACC/AHA) on completion of each chapter topic. This emphasises the level of evidence for each recommended therapy. Such recommendations are important because a guideline-oriented treatment strategy improves the prognosis in heart failure! The authors have approached this sophisticated subject in a structured, vivid and richly illustrated form, where even the latest study data are taken into account. Thus, this book is a highly topical and practical treatment guideline for doctors practicing Cardiology. Learn More

  10. State-of-the-art Treatment of Coronary Heart Disease

    State-of-the-art Treatment of Coronary Heart Disease

    Prof. Dr. Dietrich Strödter and Dr. Frans Santosa
    Buch  
    2017, 424 p.
    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1521-6
    The treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) encompasses many strategies all of which aim to improve symptoms and prognosis. While in the acute coronary syndrome, early revascularisation (usually by means of PCI and stent implantation) is the urgent goal of treatment, drug therapy initially has only a supportive role here but is also important for improving prognosis. The situation is reversed in the case of the treatment of chronic stable CAD: here conservative drug therapy has the dominant role and if implemented optimally is so successful that the prognosis cannot be further improved with additional PCI and stent implantation. Therefore, the indication for revascularisation should not only be based on an angiographic but also on a functional (FFR, fractional flow reserve) assessment of the stenosis. This book is therefore a critical presentation of the benefit of treatment strategies in the different forms of CAD. In addition to the value of lifestyle changes, it deals with the evaluation of the various drug therapies, invasive procedures such as PCI and stent implantation, bypass surgery and electrotherapeutic measures with ICD, CRT and cardiac pacemakers. The authors have succeeded in producing a textbook that is not just of interest to the attending doctor but also for patients affected by the disease. A textbook from the viewpoint: what is optimal? What is economic? What is evidence-based? Learn More
