  • The intent of Vascular Dementia: Cerebrovascular Mechanisms and Clinical Management is to address the many recent advances in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular medicine and the impact of these on the lives of older adults by examining the state-of-the-art research on vascular dementia (VaD). A distinguishing feature of this work is its interdisciplinary nature. We have assembled work from contributors in multiple related fields, including both human and animal studies, in order to advance our collective understanding of VaD....

  • STROKE IS THE THIRD MOST COMMON CAUSE of death and disability in the US. It is a complex disease, with many causes, many presentations, and many levels of severity. Despite recent medical advances, stroke remains a diffi cult disease to diagnose and treat. In recognition of the importance of this common disorder, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) instituted a new subspecialty examination in 2005.

  • Why a book on cutaneous vascular proliferations? There are several compelling reasons to justify the existence of a book on this topic. One of the most important is that cutaneous vascular proliferations are exceedingly common and affect a large number of individuals of both sexes and within a wide age range. They make up a broad spectrum of lesions with morphological and biological variations, ranging from hamartomas to highly malignant, aggressive neoplasms.

  • Reactive oxygen species (ROS) were shown to mediate aberrant contractility in hypertension, yet the physiological roles of ROS in vascular smooth muscle contraction have remained elusive. This study aimed to examine whether ROS regulate a1-adrenoceptor-activated contraction by altering myosin phosphatase activities. Methods: Using endothelium-denuded rat tail artery (RTA) strips, effects of anti-oxidants on isometric force, ROS production, phosphorylation of the 20-kDa myosin light chain (MLC20), and myosin phosphatase stimulated by a1-adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine were examined.

  • The vascular system serves two basic functions: distribution and exchange. Distribution includes transporting blood to and away from organs. The anatomical arrangement of the vasculature and physiologic control mechanisms that dilate or constrict blood vessels determine this transport. Changes in vessel diameters regulate blood pressure and determine the amount of blood flow to specific organs and regions within organs.

  • Medicine is, fortunately, constantly evolving. Imaging diagnosis is no exception. Technical improvements guarantee further developments in diagnosis. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have attained a recognized value in the diagnosis of the heart, which is continuing to increase. For this reason, we have now provided a separate chapter on diagnostic imaging of the heart. We have placed sectional CT images next to MR images of the heart to facilitate classification. We have limited ourselves to scans which are presently recognized as standard.

  • Diabetes-related cardiovascular complications often cause premature mortality, as well as disabilities such as blindness, foot ulceration and amputation. The health care and social care costs of managing these complications are enormous, but new treatments, devices and clinical management protocols are steadily improving the longer term outcomes for people with diabetes. This second edition has been revised and updated to reflect state of the art clinical practice.

  • Since its introduction in the early 1970s, computed tomography (CT) has become a robust modality to evaluate extracranial, thoracic, and abdominal vascular distributions. It has become a gold standard to non-invasively image the aorta, pulmonary arteries, great vessels, renal and peripheral arteries. However, cardiac anatomy evaluation with this modality was not possible, due to rapid cardiac motion and slow image acquisition times.

  • The last quarter of a century has seen dramatic developments in the management of cardiovascular diseases. Besides the pioneering developments in the medical management of cardiovascular disorders the field of interventional cardiology has also emerged as a major discipline with a huge impact on the clinical management of acute coronary syndrome, chronic coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, and peripheral vascular and valvular diseases.

  • Diabetes mellitus and its complications are clinical conditions of growing importance both from the clinical as well as epidemiological standpoint. The relevance of diabetes at clinical and individual level is given by its lifethreatening acute complications and, especially, by its chronic complications affecting several organs and systems, with increased risk for ocular, renal, cardiac, cerebral, nervous and peripheral vascular diseases.

  • Diseases of the nervous system number in the hundreds and are too numerous and varied to be learned in their entirety. Hence the common practice of subdividing them into categories—traumatic, vascular, neoplastic, infective, metabolic, degenerative, congenital, and so forth. In our textbook, Principles of Neurology, we describe the various categories of neurologic disease and the main diseases that constitute each category.

  • Cerebrovascular diseases have an enormous and increasing impact on societies: they rank among the leading causes of death, are often associated with chronic handicap, and cause high costs for primary treatment, rehabilitation and chronic care. The advent of treatment options such as reperfusion therapies and, to a lesser degree, neuroprotective strategies on the one hand, and growing means to enhance rehabilitation and functional plasticity on the other hand, urges physicians to diagnose stroke subtypes as early and precisely as possible.

  • Intravascular catheters are an integral part of the daily practice of medicine in the intensive care unit. As such, management of these catheters poses significant challenges to the practitioner. Vascular access is necessary in the intensive care setting, yet the devices themselves put patients at significant risk for infection. As hospital infection rates are increasingly used as a surrogate marker for measuring patient safety and quality healthcare, preventing catheter-related infection takes on added import...

  • The first section of this book deals with two fundamental aspects of anaesthetic practice: the airway and vascular access. General anaesthesia has been summarised by the simple phrase put up a drip, put down a tube and give plenty of oxygen. Many anaesthetists resent this glib description of their work, but it does have the virtue of emphasising the importance of venous cannulation and control of the airway, which are essential for the safe conduct of anaesthesia.

  • Over the past decade, treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration has evolved from overall retinal ablation to more targeted and retinal-sparing therapy, beginning with the advent of photodynamic therapy and continuing with the development of inhibitors to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This article summarizes the key clinical trials with photodynamic and anti- VEGF therapies to provide insight into and a framework around which we can choose the optimal treatments (including dosing) for our patients....

  • Presyncopal symptoms vary in duration and may increase in severity until loss of consciousness occurs, or they may resolve prior to loss of consciousness if the cerebral ischemia is corrected. The differentiation of syncope from seizure is an important, sometimes difficult, diagnostic problem.Syncope may be benign when it occurs as a result of normal cardiovascular reflex effects on heart rate and vascular tone, or serious when due to a life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia.
