How can prenatal testing help your patients?
In utero diagnosis has undergone an amazing revolution in recent years. More tests are available; the indications for prenatal diagnosis have expanded - you can now advise your patients about disorders you could not have previously detected. Medical training for obstetricians, medical geneticists, and genetic counselors has not kept pace with these developments. Clinical exposure to common and unusual problems in prenatal diagnosis is limited.
"Prenatal Diagnosis: Clinical Cases and Challenges"," " based on the authors' several decades of experiences, fills this gap. Real cases portray diagnostic problems as a route to the underlying biology, the available testing options, and the results that might be obtained. The authors discuss the challenges of management, interpretation, and counseling.
Cases used throughout emphasize three types of clinical problems: Chromosomal abnormalitiesMendelian disordersFetal structural abnormalities
The decision to enter the world of prenatal diagnosis should be very carefully considered by any prospective mother. "Prenatal Diagnosis: Clinical Cases and Challenges" will help you discuss the issues in an informed manner with your patients.
Keeping up with the use of new technologies in cardiology is becoming increasingly challenging. Case Studies in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology helps to bridge the gap between knowledge and application with 28 cases spanning both common and uncommon arrhythmias and ablation scenarios, each of which includes the clinical presentation, baseline ECG, ECG during arrhythmia, stepwise electrophysiologic diagnostic maneuvers and some of their pitfalls, and optimal therapy. Online access to the complete contents ensures the information you need is right at your fingertips. Includes 28 cases spanning the spectrum of what an electrophysiologist is likely to see in practice. Shows the correct way of conducting procedures, as well as "detours" that an unwary practitioner may take: misdiagnoses and why they are wrong; incorrect therapeutic choices and why these may be not only unsuccessful but even harmful. Encourages you to read and interpret the ECGs, mapping diagrams, and other diagnostic information before revealing the expert opinion or actual results of each case. Summarizes the key learning points in each case. Discusses potential procedural complications, including anticipation, avoidance, recognition, and response and resolution. Covers complex ablations (atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia) as well as prior failed ablations. Expert Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, images, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

This book provides an extensive guide for exercise and health professionals, students, scientists, sport coaches, athletes of various sports and those with a general interest in concurrent aerobic and strength training. Following a brief historical overview of the past decades of research on concurrent training, in section 1 the epigenetic as well as physiological and neuromuscular differences of aerobic and strength training are discussed. Thereafter, section 2 aims at providing an up-to-date analysis of existing explanations for the interference phenomenon, while in section 3 the training-methodological difficulties of combined aerobic and strength training are elucidated. In section 4 and 5, the theoretical considerations reviewed in previous sections will then be practically applied to specific populations, ranging from children and elderly to athletes of various sports. Concurrent Aerobic and Strength Training: Scientific Basics and Practical Applications is a novel book on one of the "hot topics" of exercise training. The Editors' highest priority is to make this book an easily understandable and at the same time scientifically supported guide for the daily practice.

Neoplastic mimics or "pseudotumors" can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis-clinical, radiologic, and pathologic-and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.
Hundreds of color images and analysis of diagnostic mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies, and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Since many of the entities described are uncommon, "Neoplastic Mimics in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Pathology" emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees skin cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.
This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in the skin. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of skin lesions that may mimic benign masses but are in fact neoplastic. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.
"Neoplastic Mimics in Dermatopathology" Features: Nearly 500 high-quality images showcase the full range of nonneoplastic and neoplastic mimics in skin Concise, specific text descriptions to make the book easy to use as a visual reference Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens

This book is a detailed practical guide to the use of ventricular assist devices and total artificial hearts to provide mechanical circulatory support (MCS) in patients with end-stage heart failure. It explains why MCS may be indicated, which patients require MCS, when and how to implant ventricular assist devices or a total artificial heart, and how to avoid potential complications of MCS. Management throughout the period of care is described, from preimplantation to follow-up, and both typical and atypical cases are discussed. The text features numerous helpful tips and tricks relating to surgical and nonsurgical management and is supported by a wealth of high-quality illustrations that document the preoperative evaluation and implantation techniques. Heart transplantation remains the gold standard for the treatment of patients suffering from end-stage heart failure, but the shortage of donors has led to an increase in the use of MCS. This book will assist all physicians, and especially cardiologists and anesthesiologists, who are involved in the care of these patients.
This volume focuses on the practical aspects of clinical electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias in the young as practiced in the Department of Pediatric Cardiology at the University of Michigan. Cardiac arrhythmias in children are often symptomatic as well as frightening to the child patient and parent. This volume is intended as a practical guide for the novice or seasoned physician presented with a child with a cardiac arrhythmia.
There is no accurate record of the number of electrograms recorded annually across the world, but it remains one of the most commonly used non-invasive investigations in the diagnostic armamentarium of the physician, despite or perhaps because of advances made in other techniques. There is evidence to suggest that the numbers of electrograms ordered has risen exponentially in the 1970-1990s and continues to rise today as cardiologists recognize the value of such a direct physiological measure of heart health.
Over the past century, there have been many good publications on the subject of electrocardiology. However, the first edition of this book represented a major contribution to the field. From the outset, the Editors aim was to collate as much as possible of the diverse aspects of the topic into one publication which could become a major reference resource for many years. The field of electrocardiology is not standing still and therefore in the 14 years since this first edition was published, much has occurred and this new edition is extremely timely.
This new edition of this key reference work summarizes the current knowledge of all aspects of theoretical and practical electrocardiology with particular emphasis on the interpretation of the electrocardiogram. The initial volume concentrates on the more theoretical aspects of the topic, as these form the foundations on which further advance is likely to be made. The second and third volumes of the book deal with the more clinical aspects of recording and interpreting the electrocardiogram, with the third volume concentrating on some of the specialized though no less important aspects of electrocardiology and electrocardiography.
