Osteoporosis: Diagnosis, Prevention, Therapy

Reiner Bartl and Bertha Frisch
English | 2009 | ISBN: 354079526X | 313 pages

Osteoporosis is a global threat because it can impact every human being as they age. In this new edition, the authors point out the enormous scale of the problem in terms of human suffering, morbidity and mortality on the one hand, and the astronomical national costs on the other. Written in an easy-to-read style, this book updates physicians on the current knowledge about bone structure, physiology and pathology, with an emphasis on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of osteoporosis. Its purpose is to educate members of the medical profession about this widespread and potentially disabling disease, while providing information on related current evidence-based medicine. The book covers everything from basic physiology to osteoporosis diagnosis, including utility of specialized tests and current treatment recommendations, and will provide the primary care physician with sound medical knowledge in the prevention and management of osteoporosis. It is up-beat and optimistic, with a touch of humor; it is scientifically based but provides easy-to-follow guidelines for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function. Osteoporosis is preventable if doctors want it to be, and every doctor can contribute. Bone is every doctor's and every body's business.

"ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease"
English | 2009 | ISBN: 1405178892 | 120 pages

 Structural and functional abnormalities of arteries and veins manifest clinically in a broad spectrum of disorders, including aneurysmal disease, atherosclerosis, vasculitis, venous insufficiency, microvascular complications, thrombo-embolism and lower limb ulceration. Many of these are common and/or chronic conditions which present for initial assessment by primary health care workers.

This new edition is a practical guide to the most commonly presenting disorders, and provides a structured approach to clinical assessment, investigations and management. The last few years have seen major changes in the use of non-invasive or minimally-invasive techniques, e.g wider use of CT and MR angiography, and increasing use of percutaneous interventions for carotid, lower limb and reno-vascular disease.

The ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease (Second Edition) explains the underlying technology and the applications of new minimally-invasive methods, especially CT and MRI, and provides an up-dated, evidence-based guide to the modern day management of patients with common, life-threatening diseases involving different parts of the circulation.

This authoritative, full-colour, illustrated ABC is an ideal reference for the primary care, non-specialist practitioner to base effective management and prevention programmes.
