|Portal Hypertension II: Definitions, Methodology, and Therapeutic Strategies
Lowest used price: $44.99
List price: $94.95
Author: Roberto de Franchis
The study of portal hypertension, its diagnosis and management, has been hindered in the past by lack of international consensus. Differences in methodology, definitions and interpretation of results between clinical trials makes this the assessment of new data difficult in the context of previous work. The first International Consensus Workshop, Definitions, Methodology and Therapeutic Strategies, took place in Baveno, Italy, in 1990. It made some steps towards standardising terminology and producing guidelines for future studies. The past five years have brought a growth in our understanding of the pathophysiology of portal hypertension, as well as exciting developments in diagnostic and treatment strategies. This title records the proceedings of the Second International Consensus Workshop (27-28 April 1995, Baveno, Italy). At this meeting, an international cast of experts consolidated opinion on topics covered at Baveno I, explored a wide range of issues surrounding portal hypertension, and reached a consensus of opinion on many of these. The sessions were also interspersed by lectures from opinion leaders on different aspects of portal hypertension.

|Neurofibromatosis Type I: From Genotype to Phenotype (Human Molecular Genetics)
Lowest used price: $194.00
List price: $135.95
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is one of the most common dominantly inherited neurogenetic disorders. Affecting 1 in 4000 individuals worldwide. Symptoms include facial and body disfigurement, mental retardation and abnormalities of the cardiovascular, renal and endocrine systems.
This book is written for a broad readership ranging from students to professionals. It provides the reader with a basic overview of the disease before discussing the most recent research and therapeutic developments in detail. It is essential reading for medical geneticists, molecular biologists, dermatologists, oncologists, neurologists, genetic counsellors, general practitioners and research students.
The volume attempts to cover clinical aspects of the disease; gene structure, expression and mutation; structural and functional aspects of the encoded protein, neurofibromin; the role of the NF1gene as a tumour suppressor, the emerging genotype-phenotype relationship for NF1, animal models of the disease and future prospects for disease treatment and prevention.

|Secondary Hypertension: Clinical Presentation,Diagnosis,and Treatment
Author: George A. Mansoor
This indispensable guide critically evaluates for hypertension specialists both established and new techniques for diagnosing and treating secondary hypertension in adults and children. Drawing on a variety of medical disciplines - including nephrology, endocrinology, internal medicine, and pediatrics - its world-renowned authors review the critical scenarios that should prompt a search for secondary forms of hypertension, and detail appropriate testing for these uncommon disorders. Additional coverage is given to exogenous or such less-appreciated causes of secondary hypertension as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, renovascular hypertension, and the effects of noncardiac drugs.
