Abstract
Kidney Cancer: Principles and Practice is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary textbook that encompasses all clinically relevant aspects of the disease. This new edition has been extensively updated and includes brand new material covering the most recent developments in kidney cancer diagnosis and therapy. The user-friendly and clinically oriented content of the book guarantees that it will be of great interest to a wide range of medical professionals, and every effort has been made to ensure that contributions are both easy to understand and directly related to patient care. Content presentation departs from the usual dense chapter format featuring a lengthy series of paragraphs. Instead, each chapter contains several boxed sections, including one that summarizes essential "take home points" for the busy clinician and another that presents a patient-oriented case highlighting the clinical application of elements discussed in that chapter. In addition, accessible original images, illustrations, and diagrams (some in full color) are used to simplify particularly complex material. This book will be of value for clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and knowledgeable lay people. The contributors comprise an international group of authors with expertise in kidney cancer epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, diagnosis, clinical features, staging, prognostic and predictive factors, surgery, systemic therapy, and emerging investigational approaches, among others.

Abstract
The kidneys participate in all vital processes of the body to maintain overall homeostasis and health. When kidneys are injured during surgical interventions, metabolic and hemodynamic control is disrupted, leading to dysfunction associated with greater mortality, length of hospital stay, and cost. Peri-operative Kidney Injury presents the epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes associated with kidney injury during the peri-operative period. Concepts and principles of care to prevent kidney complications during surgical procedures are provided to equip health care professionals along with strategies to manage acute kidney injury and associated challenges when they occur. Chapters detail diverse surgical settings, ranging from the more common, such as abdominal, cardiac, and vascular surgeries, to the intricately complex, including the use of the left ventricular assist device and organ transplants. This practical and comprehensive text blends the evidence-based standards of care with cutting edge advances in the field, while also providing the reader with a peek into innovations on the horizon.

Abstract
The knowledge of Th17 cells and other cell populations which secrete IL-17A, and/or IL-22 has expanded tremendously since the publication of the first edition "Th17 Cells: Role in Inflammation and Autoimmune Disease" in 2008. The present volume has been completely revised with the addition of new chapters on the IL-17 receptor family and signaling, and an in-depth review of IL-22 and innate lymphoid cells. The differentiation of naive T cells into regulatory T cells and Th17 cells as well as the plasticity of Th17 cells is discussed. The role of IL-22 in cutaneous inflammation including psoriasis has been reviewed. In addition, the volume contains critical updates on autoimmunity, organ transplantation, tumor immunology and genetic mouse models for mechanistic studies. Lastly, the latest clinical progress in neutralizing antibodies to IL-17A, IL-17RA not only confirms the therapeutic promise foreseen in 2008, but also improves our knowledge of the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. In summary, this is a timely update and important review of the clinical and experimental aspects of IL-17, IL-22 and their producing cells.

Abstract
L'ecocontrastografia si © rivelata spesso risolutiva ai fini della diagnosi rendendo superfluo il ricorso ad altre metodiche di imaging pi©£ impegnative per il paziente e pi©£ costose per la collettivit©á. Questo ha spinto ad un sempre maggiore utilizzo delle "microbolle" anche in altri campi di applicazione come quello del trapianto renale, del reflusso vescico-ureterale sino ad arrivare ad un tentativo di tipizzazione delle lesioni solide renali o di stadiazione delle lesioni vescicali. L'ecocontrastografia dell'apparato urinario ha pertanto acquistato pari dignit©á rispetto ad altri esami contrastografici, risultando "problem-solving examination". La casistica personaleádegli autori e i datiáriportati ináletteratura per ciascun organo valutato (rene, vescica e vie urinarie) sono alla base della trattazione, che intende sottolineare il ruoloádel mezzo di contrasto ultrasonografico di II generazioneánella detection e caratterizzazione delle patologie dell'apparato urinario. Il volume si rivolge principalmente allo specializzando ma risulter©á di uguale interesse anche per il radiologo e il clinico esperti che desiderino approfondire l'argomento.

Studi clinici randomizzati ci diranno presto se la colonscopia virtuale avr©á un ruolo nello screening del cancro del colon-retto. Questo innovativo percorso diagnostico richiede nuove tecnologie e maggiori conoscenze, insieme a un'interazione diversa, pi©£ impegnativa con il paziente. ©ê dunque importante che il radiologo e il personale sanitario siano professionalmente aggiornati e preparati in questa metodica. Partendo dalle indicazioni alla colonscopia virtuale, gli autori presentano i diversi step e le apparecchiature utilizzate, descrivendo in dettaglio la preparazione del paziente, l'insufflazione, i protocolli d'esame, come organizzare un servizio di colonscopia virtuale, cosa fare in caso di complicanze, il controllo di qualit©á. Il formato tascabile e il taglio del manuale sono improntati al concetto di guida pratica: i numerosi schemi, tabelle, diagrammi di flusso e figure esemplificative contribuiscono a farne un utile strumento di lavoro nella pratica clinica di tutti i giorni. Springer ABC: una serie di pratici manuali dedicati alla diagnostica per immagini, per approfondire le metodiche pi©£ innovative e le tematiche di maggior interesse per la comunit©á radiologica.
