BOOK EXCERPT:

The present volume summarizes current research on type 2 diabetes, its etiology, pathogenesis and long-term vascular and neurological consequences, with special emphasis on molecular and biochemical mechanisms. Alterations in insulin secretion are comprehensively treated, focusing on the role of glucokinase as glucose sensor. Moreover, insulin action is analyzed with regard to both nonoxidative glucose utilization and glucose oxidation. Concerning the complications in chronic diabetes, topics covered include the effects of high glucose concentration on cellular and endothelial functions and on the glucose phosphorylation rate in non-insulin-sensitive tissues. Furthermore, the role of oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products as well as the significance of alterations in lipoprotein structure are considered. Finally, the pericyte loss in retinopathy and microalbuminuria as related to cardiovascular risk are discussed. Taken as a whole, the contributions included in this book represent a large body of information that will be of great interest to diabetologists, endocrinologists and internists interested in both the basic and clinical aspects of diabetes and its complications.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Increasing evidence suggests that particularly in high-risk patients, endovascular solutions offer substantial advantages compared to vascular surgical procedures. Nevertheless, growing numbers of procedures are associated with an increased incidence of complications. Knowledge of specific complications in different vessel areas will support the interventionist in preventing such adverse events and if necessary, provide considerable reassurance if such complications need to be resolved. In Complications in Peripheral Vascular Interventions, typical and atypical complications are described for all peripheral vessel areas, and methods for how to handle these events are outlined. The book is divided in two parts. Part 1 reviews general aspects on complications in peripheral interventions, and Part II covers the specific vessel areas. Each chapter on the specific vessel area includes Introduction to the frequency and kind of complications in this vessel area Factors identifying high-risk patients for these complications Complications of specific interventional steps and tools Endovascular techniques to resolve these complications Methods to avoid complications Summary Checklist for emergency equipment Offering practical tips for the interventionist in the cath lab, high-volume interventionists share their experiences by reviewing complicated cases and outlining different strategies used in real-life scenarios.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Neurologic side effects of cancer therapy can inhibit treatment, can be dose-limiting and can diminish quality-of-life. Neurotoxicity related to cancer therapy is a common problem in oncology practice and in clinical neurology. Recognition of neurologic complications of anticancer therapy is necessary due to potential confusion with metastatic disease, paraneoplastic syndromes or comorbid neurologic disorders that do not require reduction or discontinuation of therapy. Neurologic Complications of Cancer Therapy provides comprehensive coverage of the recognition and management of neurologic symptoms related to cancer therapy. The book includes sections on systemic therapy discussed by both agent and adverse event. The section on adverse events is particularly valuable to clinicians, allowing them to consult by symptom in cases where multiple agents have been administered and the source of the complication is uncertain. The systemic therapy section includes coverage of immunologic agents, biologics, and targeted therapies. The book also features sections on the complications of radiation therapy, complications of surgery and high-dose chemotherapy, and stem cell transplantation. Neurologic Complications of Cancer Therapy Features: A widely recognized team of editors Systemic therapy covered by therapeutic agent and by adverse event, enabling a "problem-oriented" approach for the clinician Coverage of newer modalities including immunologic agents, biologics, and targeted therapies Complete sections on complications of radiation therapy, surgery, high-dose chemotherapy, and stem-call transplantion
