With advances and breakthroughs in modern medicine that are allowing people to live longer, the number of older adults will continue to grow exponentially over the next several decades. Cardiologists, geriatricians, and other clinicians caring for the elderly will require—at the very least—a basic understanding of cardiovascular disorders that commonly affect the older patient. In the fifth edition of Tresch and Aronow's Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly, each chapter has been thoroughly updated to provide a comprehensive, yet accessible overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders in older adults. The book spans topics such as aging changes in the cardiovascular system, risk factors and epidemiology for coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies and heart failure, arrhythmias, cerebrovascular disease, and other miscellaneous subjects. The contributors supply evidence-based recommendations with strong emphasis on new research findings. New to the Fifth Edition: Numerous chapters comprehensively revised with new authors and/or co-authors Summaries at the beginning of each chapter to facilitate easy reading Discussion of the use of new antithrombotic agents in older adults Important references in the bibliography highlighted for simplified access With contributions from recognized experts in the field, this classic work continues to serve as the premier source on the evaluation and management of cardiovascular disorders in older adults.

Despite recent advances in healthcare, hypertension is a leading cause of death and remains a disease burden worldwide. Now in its second edition, the Manual of Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension reflects emerging concepts that have the potential to impact diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to this condition. Updating all material, this new edition also delves into a number of areas that have received heightened interest in recent years or have become a matter of debate due to the controversial interpretation of the available data. Topics include: Background, history, and epidemiology of hypertension Risk factors such as pulse pressure, high heart rate, obesity, diabetes, and stress Etiological and pathophysiological aspects, including hemodynamics and genetics Hypertension-based damage to body organs and systems Blood pressure measurements and other diagnostic procedures Pharmacological, nonpharmacological, and medical treatments Hypertension in special populations, including diabetic patients, children, during pregnancy, and post-transplant Cost-benefit aspects of hypertension treatment and running a hypertension center Each topic is addressed in a format that will be of interest not only to investigators and students who conduct studies on hypertension and its cardiovascular and renal complications, but also to clinicians needing in-depth information on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. The book is an essential guide to all facets of this debilitating condition that remains a threat to public health.

Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is the latest edition of this comprehensive guide to the effects of tuberculosis on the bones and joints, with guidelines for their management. The book is divided into twenty-six chapters across three sections. The first section covers general considerations in osteo-articular tuberculosis, including epidemiology and prevalence, pathology and pathogenesis, diagnosis and investigations, and anti-tubercular drugs. The second section covers extra-spinal regional tuberculosis, from the hip joint to the shoulder, short tubular bones to sacroiliac joints and tendon sheaths. This section also includes a chapter on tuberculous osteomyelitis (infection of the bone marrow). Each chapter covers pathogenesis, clinical features, radiological findings, differential diagnosis, methods of treatment, surgical techniques, and relevant anatomy. The final section focuses on tuberculosis of the spine, including imaging for the disease, differential diagnosis, operative treatment, and surgical anatomy. The increased prevalence of ‘superbugs’ is addressed throughout this new edition, with discussion on new modalities which could potentially combat them. Enhanced by over 280 illustrations and images, this edition of Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is an ideal update for orthopaedic surgeons. Key Points Latest edition of this comprehensive guide to the management of osteo-articular tuberculosis Previous edition published 2008 (9789351524625) The increased prevalence of ‘superbugs’ is addressed in this edition with new modalities which could potentially combat them 282 images and illustrations

Twin Block appliances are simple bite blocks that are designed for full-time wear. They achieve rapid functional correction of malocclusion (misalignment of upper and lower teeth) by the transmission of favourable occlusal forces to occlusal inclined planes that cover the posterior teeth. The forces of occlusion are used as the functional mechanism to correct the malocclusion ( Beginning with an introduction to orthodontics and twin blocks, the next chapters describe growth studies and diagnosis and treatment planning. Each of the following sections discusses the use of twin blocks for different types of malocclusion. With a focus on the latest developments in functional therapy, the book offers guidance on diagnosis, treatment planning, case selection, appliance design and clinical management. Written by the internationally recognised Orthodontist William Clark from Fife, UK, who also invented Twin Blocks, this comprehensive guide includes nearly 600 clinical photographs and illustrations. Key points Comprehensive guide to use of Twin Blocks in treatment of malocclusion Focus on latest developments in functional therapy Written by UK-based inventor of Twin Blocks Includes nearly 600 images and illustrations
