Over the last decades, acrosomal exocytosis (also called the "acrosome reaction") has been recognized as playing an essential role in fertilization. Secretion of this granule is an absolute requirement for physiological fertilization. In recent years, the study of mammalian acrosomal exocytosis has yielded some major advances that challenge the long-held, general paradigms in the field. Principally, the idea that sperm must be acrosome-intact to bind to the zona pellucida of unfertilized eggs, based largely on in vitro fertilization studies of mouse oocytes denuded of the cumulus oophorus, has been overturned by experiments using state-of-the-art imaging of cumulus-intact oocytes and fertilization experiments where eggs were reinseminated by acrosome-reacted sperm recovered from the perivitelline space of zygotes. From a molecular point of view, acrosome exocytosis is a synchronized and tightly regulated process mediated by molecular mechanisms that are homologous to those reported in neuroendocrinal cell secretions. The authors provide a broader perspective, focusing on a limited number of important topics that are essential for understanding the molecular mechanisms governing this step in the fertilization process. They also discuss molecular aspects such as the signaling pathways leading to exocytosis, including the participation of ion channels, lipids, the fusion machinery proteins and the actin cytoskeleton as well as cellular aspects such as the site of acrosomal exocytosis and the use of gene-manipulated animals to study this process.

This book gives a complete description of online hemodiafiltration, in five sections. It is unique in the systematic and complete way in which hemodiafiltration is described. Each chapter is completed by a point-to-point summary of essential information, in a separate text box. Part of the book is dedicated to the theoretical background of convective clearance. In this part, safety issues and quality control is reviewed (especially on the quality of water for dialysis and substitution fluid), as well as equipment (both dialyzers and machines) with which this treatment can be performed. As recently the results of several randomized controlled trials were available, the effect of hemodiafiltration on hard clinical end points (mortality and morbidity) is discussed in detail. This has not been done before, as the most recent book/journal on hemodiafiltration was published in 2011, before the results of the 3 randomized controlled trials were published. Furthermore, the methodological quality of the trials is discussed by an expert, in order to help the readers in their judgment of the trials Part of the book concentrates on the effect of the treatment on several biomarkers and uremic toxins. Several clinically relevant issues is discussed separately, such as the prescription of anticoagulation during the treatment, drug prescription and clearance for patients treated with hemodiafiltration, and hemodynamic stability. Finally, a practical guide on how to perform the treatment is provided. In this unique section, seemingly simple but important details of hemodiafiltration-treatment is discussed, such as the importance of needle size for blood flow rates, the difference between filtration fraction and substitution ratio, the different targets that can be set and how to reach them. As most literature is mainly focused on theoretical issues, this unique feature really will help the field to perform hemodiafiltration, and answer practical questions.

This book offers a practical surgical guide, helping surgeons learn the technique needed to perform Laparoscopic SacroColpoPexy (LSCP). To do so, it explains the surgical process in straightforward language, supplemented by images and diagrams, while also discussing why this procedure is so effective. The book has two primary goals: to provide those surgeons who have never performed LSCP before with essential insights and technical expertise, based on the author's 20 years of practical surgical experience; and to allay the common fear of possible complications. Following a 2012 FDA warning, surgeons whose work involved vaginal prolapse repair have been looking for an alternative technique. Though LSCP offers a safe alternative to current methods, the available literature on it is sparse. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the techniques and methods needed by surgeons operating on pelvic organ prolapse in a range of different specialties, including urogynecology, urology, and gynecology.
Every year, more than four million American women become pregnant. All of them, at one time or another, suffer from minor but annoying health problems, which can be relieved partially or completely by taking nonprescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. Pregnant women are appropriately concerned about the potential effect these drugs may have on their developing babies and are usually reluctant to take these OTC medications. This is unfortunate because many of these medications are not only safe in pregnancy, but could relieve a wide variety of annoying symptoms including headaches, backaches, constipation, nausea, and cold symptoms, to name a few. This book provides factual information about the known safety and usefulness of OTC medications in pregnancy.
