Primary care providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants) make decisions on a daily basis regarding treatments for musculoskeletal problems, including referrals to physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons and other specialists. Despite the large number of patients presenting with musculoskeletal complaints, primary care providers often feel poorly educated about how to assess and manage these patients This book provides a high yield and succinct resource on the assessment and management of these conditions. Written by expert orthopedic specialists at a major Harvard teaching hospital, this book fills that educational gap. Chapters overview specific body parts, typical presentations of disease, options for diagnostic testing, treatment paradigms, and anticipated outcomes of management both in the primary care setting and with a specialist. The text offers suggested pathways for working up and treating these problems with an emphasis on when referral to a specialist, or surgical intervention, is needed and when it is not. This is an ideal resource to educate primary care providers and empower them to engage in informed discussions with patients helping patients to arrive at treatment choices consonant with their preferences.
This book describes a wide range of interventional procedures currently employed in the treatment of cardiac diseases in women with the aim of enabling not only interventional cardiologists but also cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to refine their approach to female patients and thus improve outcomes. The book reflects the increasing awareness of gender differences with regard to coronary artery disease and structural valve heart disease. Examples include myocardial infarction, which carries a worse prognosis in women in part because they suffer from this disease mostly in the 7th decade of life, present more frequently with hemodynamic instability and later from symptom onset, and have fragile, small and tortuous coronary arteries that are more technically demanding in the context of primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Another example is symptomatic aortic stenosis, which carries a better prognosis in women who undergo trans-catheter aortic valve implantation partially due to a better annulus-prosthesis match, which leads to less residual paravalvular regurgitation, better left ventricular function and lower aggregation of comorbidities. Further, in women left ventricular response to aortic stenosis is typified by muscle hypertrophy with a small ventricular cavity. These differences are reflected in the clinical manifestations and their impact on diagnosis, treatment, and choice of tools and devices for use in interventional procedures. By explaining the at times subtle variances in disease and treatment techniques for female and male patients, this book will help practitioners select the most appropriate procedures and materials in a range of settings.

Dr. Jay A. Goldstein 's Betrayal by the Brain can be a daunting treatise to the layperson as well as a challenge for the physician who is not versed in neurology, psychiatry, immunology, and endocrinology. Here, in A Companion Volume to Dr. Jay A. Goldstein 's Betrayal by the Brain: A Guide for Patients and Their Physicians, Author Katie Courmel, a longtime sufferer of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, presents in layperson 's terms the salient points of the book to lead readers to an understanding of Dr. Goldstein 's theory and methods of treatment. This guide provides CFS and FMS patients with an understanding of how their brains should function as opposed to how they are now dysfunctioning. It explains the proper role and function of each brain structure and neural assembly and the neurochemicals believed to be implicated in CFS and fibromyalgia along with the dysfunctions found in CFS/FMS patients. These dysfunctions, as a whole, form the basis of Dr. Goldstein 's unified theory behind the possible causes of CFS and FMS. Patients involved in or contemplating Dr. Goldstein 's treatment can use A Companion Volume to Dr. Jay A. Goldstein 's Betrayal by the Brain to gain an explanation of the process from a firsthand perspective and can follow along to learn why they are given particular drugs and what response Dr. Goldstein hopes to elicit from their bodies. This understanding gives patients a sense of control and helps them weather the ups and downs their bodies experience as a normal response to the treatment. The strength of A Companion Volume to Dr. Jay A. Goldstein 's Betrayal by the Brain lies in its ability to simplify without sacrificing the body of information that one must understand to make sense of the multitude of seemingly unrelated manifestations of these diseases of the brain. A thorough understanding will allow sufferers of CFS/FMS to approach Dr. Goldstein 's treatment method with an open mind and improve their chances for success. Specific questions answered for readers include: how safe is this protocol? should I go alone or take a companion? what should I expect during my initial consultation? what are the effects of so many drugs? why doesn t the same drug work for everyone? if my treatment is successful, how long will it last? what happens when I leave Dr. Goldstein 's care? A Companion Volume to Dr. Jay A. Goldstein 's Betrayal by the Brain prepares readers for a unique, sometimes scary, often perplexing, hopefully miraculous, leap-of-faith experience. It helps patients deal with the very natural sense of uneasiness they may be feeling and helps them understand, in layperson 's terms, what Dr. Goldstein 's protocol can accomplish and how it can be so successful.
This comprehensive, up-to-date textbook of modern cervical spine surgery describes the standard and advanced techniques recommended by the Cervical Spine Research Society - European Section (CSRS-E) with a view to enabling both young and experienced surgeons to further develop their skills and improve their surgical outcomes. Success in cervical spine surgery depends on the surgeon's awareness of the main challenges posed by distinct cervical spine diseases, theoretical understanding of treatment concepts, and knowledge of technical options and the related potential for complications. It is the surgeon who has to merge theory and practice to achieve the desired outcome, in each case appraising the details of surgical anatomy and weighing the challenges and complications associated with a surgical technique against the skills that he or she possesses. This excellently illustrated book, written by key opinion makers from the CSRS-E with affiliated surgeons as co-authors, presents the full range of approaches and techniques and clearly identifies indications, precautions, and pitfalls. It will be a superb technical reference for all cervical spine surgeons, whether orthopaedic surgeons or neurosurgeons.

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest. Despite prevalence of at least 1% of the global population, Hyperhidrosis is still an unknown entity, for the most part -- an undertreated and even neglected medical condition. Moreover, there are few sources summarizing the knowledge on hyperhidrosis to a wider audience. The purpose of this book is to provide information regarding hyperhidrosis, ranging from basic information on pathophysiology to the most advanced therapeutic alternatives. From a therapeutic perspective, hyperhidrosis requires clinical treatment using topical and subdermal agents as well as surgical approaches. The book will not only cover these topics but will discuss all aspects of care -- from patient selection through post-surgical complications. Special attention will be given to sympathectomies. Medical and paramedical professionals, as well as students and researchers, interested in the topic will find the book comprehensive in scope and targeted in offering practical, clinical guidance. Diagnosis and Treatment of Hyperhidrosis - A Complete Guide counts with the collaboration of most renowned specialists of this field, and is intended as an easy to read and very practical reference book.
