Further topics include the fundamentals of epithelial transport; mathematical modeling of ion transport; cell volume regulation; membrane protein folding and trafficking; transepithelial transport functions; and lastly, a discussion of transport proteins as potential pharmacological targets with a focus on the pharmacology of potassium channels.
Lectures on scientific data, educational lectures, and the various other forms of oral presentation are the basis for every medical meeting. Physicians are not professionally trained in giving lectures. This becomes very obvious when one visits a medical meeting. Often the message of the presentation is lost because of poor preparation, slides that fail to communicate effectively, and a generally unconvincing performance by the lecturer. To give a high-quality lecture that will be remembered for its content and form, one first has to learn some basic rules about preparation, PowerPoint slides, and oral communication. This book will enable the reader to overcome all the common presentation mistakes and to start a new career as a professional lecturer and esteemed faculty member.

Nebenwirkungen der medikamentosen Therapie werden bei eingeschrankter Nierenfunktion ungleich haufi- ger als beim Nierengesunden beobachtet. Grund hier- fUr ist vor allem die nicht ausreichende Kenntnis der bei Niereninsuffizienz veranderten Pharmako- kinetik, die eine verlangerte renale Ausscheidung, aber auch Xnderungen von Resorption, Biotrans- formation und VerteilungsvO.lwnen zahlreicher Substanzen umfaBt. 1m Stadium der Uramie kann schlieBlich auch die Wirkstoffrezeptorbeziehung, d.h. die Pharmakodynamik, alteriert sein, woraus eine verstarkte oder abgeschwachte Medikamenten- wirkung resultiert. Renale Funktionsstorungen als Ursache einer ver- anderten Pharmakokinetik treten nicht nur bei ent- zUndlichen Nierenerkrankungen auf, weitaus haufiger manifestieren sie sich im Gefolge eines langjahri- gen Hypertonus, im hoheren Lebensalter oder aber auch durch operativen oder traumatischen StreB und bei vie len anderen Storungen im Wasser- und Elektro- lythaushalt. Hinzu kommt die wachsende Zahl von Kranken mit irreversiblem Nierenversagen, die ihr Leben allein der regelmaBigen Dialysebehandlung ver- danken. Der 5. Dialysearzte-Workshop, der am 13. und 14. Oktober 1978 in Bad Kissingen stattfand, widmete sich vorwiegend den pharmakotherapeutischen Problemen bei eingeschrankter Nierenfunktion, erorterte aber auch arzneimittelbedingte Schaden der Nieren und die Dia- lysefahigkeit von Pharmaka, ein Problem, das bei einer Reihe von Intoxikationen aktuell ist. Die Referate dieses Symposions mit auslandischen Gasten sind hier in Buchform zusammengestellt. Sie sollen damit einem groBen Kreis von Xrzten nahezu aller Fachdisziplinen zuganglich gemacht werden.

The prevalence of hypertension is almost three times as high as that of diabetes mellitus type 2, with both conditions being major risk factors for stroke, ischemic heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, and heart failure. The exact prevalence of hypertension related to hormonal derangements (endocrine hypertension) is not known but estimated to affect less than 15% of hypertensive patients. Recent scientific discoveries have increased the understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of hypertension. In Endocrine Hypertension, a renowned panel of experts provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of this disorder, discussing when to assign an endocrine cause in one of many conditions that may present with hypertension. The first part of Endocrine Hypertension is dedicated to adrenal causes. The second part of the volume concerns potential nonadrenal causes of hypertension, such as growth hormone excess or deficiency, primary hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D deficiency, testosterone deficiency, insulin resistance, obesity-associated hypertension, and the role of central mineralocorticoid receptors and cardiovascular disease. An important contribution to the literature, Endocrine Hypertension is an indispensable reference not only for endocrinologists, diabetologists, and adrenal investigators, but also for translational scientists and clinicians from cardiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, geriatrics, urology, and reproductive medicine / gynecology.
Ferment, a sign of progress in any scientific field, has previously been lacking in the area of cryptorchidism, where the only activity has been in improving operative methods. Now, however, profound changes in the care of boys with cryptorchidism are being brought about; ideas are arising from a fresh look at comparative anatomy, and histological and experimental observa- tions are being supplemented by clinical tests made possible by new hormonal agents. The treatment of cryptorchidism begins with its recognition by the pediatri- cian, who until now has shown little interest because of disappointing results from chorionic gonadotropin administration. As for the surgeon, his bent toward restoration of normal anatomical relationships has kept his attention focused on the development of better surgical technics to bring the recalci- trant testis into the scrotum. Both specialists have avoided the primordial question of why the testis did not descend properly. If this were known they would treat the cause of cryptorchidism, and not be satisfied merely with trying to correct its end result. As one reads this book, one sees that in most patients cryptorchidism is not caused by some anatomical structure blocking the way or by some deformity of the testis interfering with the transport mechanism. Rather, deficiencies in the hormonal environment of the fetus retard the developmen- tal sequences essential to the normal differentiation and descent of the testis. The clinical solution is thus to provide the deficient substances.
Images in Urology is a unique book that integrates images of urological conditions within their clinical context. Improvements in imaging techniques have meant greater diagnostic power and a dramatic rise in the number and quality of images obtained and viewed by practicing clinicians. None more so than in the field of urology, where static and dynamic images are fundamental to the diagnosis and treatment of almost all conditions. This book presents images of radiological and radionucleotide scans, macroscopic and microscopic histopathology specimens, urodynamic traces and photographs of dermatological conditions relating to urology. Each section has a series of questions, often relating to a clinical scenario, about the images. A comprehensive answer provides a description of each image and of the condition shown. Details of how to interpret the image and the use of contrast or staining methods to help differentiate normal anatomy from pathology are included. Images in Urology is an essential tool for urology, radiology and histopathology trainees and consultants, as well as being an excellent exam preparation guide.
