  1. Procalcitonin - Biochemistry and Clinical Diagnosis

    Procalcitonin - Biochemistry and Clinical Diagnosis

    At present, Procalcitonin (PCT) is one of the best parameters for the early detection and monitoring of severe bacterial infections and sepsis. More than 1,500 scientific publications on PCT account for the most significant areas of application of this marker. - PCT helps identify or rule out severe bacterial infections. It provides a relatively high degree of certainty in the differential diagnosis of “sepsis”, “severe sepsis” or “septic shock”. - In conjunction with other clinical data, PCT indicates whether antibiotic therapy appears to be necessary. - The course of PCT also reflects the efficacy of antibiotic therapy and indicates when it should be terminated. This allows a “patient-adapted, individual” antibiotic treatment of generally shorter duration than in conventional procedures. - PCT offers a risk assessment in patients with sepsis in respect of organ failure and mortality, thus high-risk patients are quickly identified to receive optimum treatment. In order to ensure a qualified application of this parameter in the hospital as well as in the medical practice, fundamental knowledge of PCT is essential. This monograph overviews the most important areas of application and defines the special properties of PCT. Mehr erfahren

    Immunoglobulins play an essential role in the human immune system. Therapeutic immunoglobulin truly represents a global resource and the web connecting clinical research, basic research, manufacturing and advocacy truly span the globe. Now five years have passed since the first English edition of “Clinical Use of Immunoglobulins”. Much progress has occurred in the field over that time: new clinical indications, new efficacy and outcome data, novel insights into mechanisms of action and new preparations of therapeutic immunoglobulin. This new 2nd edition features two entirely new chapters one covering the adverse effects of immunoglobulin therapy (Chapter 3) and a second covering dermatologic diseases (Chapter 16). All previous topics are included and have been updated. In aggregate, the volume provides comprehensive perspective on therapeutic immunoglobulin. Mehr erfahren

    Aortic regurgitation today is the third most common valvular pathology in industrial countries, either isolated to the valve or in conjunction with aortic disease. With changing demographics it can be expected to increase in prevalence in the next years. The past years have brought about dynamic changes in surgical options, imaging techniques and also patient expectations. A group of internationally highly renowned authors from different specialties have made a joint effort to provide a state-of-the-art overview of all aspects of the disease. Anatomy, pathology, cardiological aspects and current guidelines are presented by leaders in their fields. Surgical techniques and their long-term results are summarised by an international team of individuals with a strong track record in their respective areas. The topics are presented precisely, comprehensively and can be a reference to all health care professionals seeking information on the latest developments. Mehr erfahren

    The benefit in using Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) has been proven over many years, not only for liver disease but also for a range of extra-hepatic indications. Liver guidelines have now also been updated on a larger international scale by a team from Europe as well as by experts from Asia and the USA. This book should help not just towards a start into a new and exciting imaging world, but also to support those who already perform CEUS on a daily basis. Mehr erfahren

    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1398-4
    There has been an explosion of interest in esophageal High Resolution Manometry (HRM). Today, less than 15 years after publication of the first paper describing this technology, there are now more than 1300 HRM systems in use worldwide. This manual is designed for use by physicians, surgeons and physiologists that use HRM for clinical measurement of esophageal function. Contents are divided into four sections including: - Practical instructions including step-by-step instructions for the acquisition and analysis of HRM - A primer on esophageal physiology and motility disorders - A practical guide to HRM technology and application in clinical practice - An atlas including step-by-step guide to the acquisition and analysis of HRM studies and more than 100 examples of clinical findings demonstrating the "range of normal and abnormal findings" observed during HRM studies The editors are grateful to all those members of the HRM Working Group that contributed to this manual to share their knowledge and experience gained from the first ten years of work with this exciting new technology.

    ISBN: 978-3-8374-1452-3
    Many patients never get the chance to experience the benefits of apomorphine due to a lack of information about the treatment. This textbook gives a compact and comprehensive overview of origin, chemistry, pharmacokinetics, clinical use and future role of apomorphine in Parkinson's disease. The authors, who are internationally renowned authorities in the field of Parkinson's disease, provide up-to-date reviews of the role of continuous and intermittent apomorphine infusion, its indications and side effects. The efficacy of apomorphine is also compared to the results achieved by deep brain stereotactic surgery and new application forms (e.g., intranasal, inhalative) are introduced. This book is an essential read and represents a practical guideline for all who deal with people with Parkinson's disease. Mehr erfahren

    In recent years, brachytherapy has made enormous progress in terms of image-guided planning and in how it is executed as well as in applicator and device technology. Furthermore, various guidelines have been published by the European Brachytherapy Group within the ESTRO (GEC-ESTRO): brachytherapy for carcinoma of the prostate (HDR, LDR), cervical cancer, in tumours of the head and neck and in breast cancer (partial breast irradiation). All these numerous new developments have been comprehensively taken into account in the second edition of this textbook. This book serves as a teaching and learning aid for specialists, doctors in further training, medical physicists, radiographers and nurses. It also aims to provide a stimulus for experienced radiotherapists to expand their field of activity and thereby optimally use the given therapeutic diversity of our discipline. Mehr erfahren
