Abstract
The literature on the late effects of cancer treatment is widely scattered in different journals since all major organ systems are affected and management is based on a variety of medical and surgical treatments. The aim of ALERT Adverse Late Effects of Cancer Treatment is to offer a coherent multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer survivors. The central paradigm is that cytotoxic multimodal therapy results in a perpetual cascade of events that affects each major organ system differently and is expressed continually over time. Essentially, radiation and chemotherapy are intense biologic modifiers that allow for cancer cure and cancer survivorship but accelerate senescence of normal tissues and increase the incidence of age-related diseases and second malignant tumors. Volume 1 of this two-volume work focuses on the general concepts and principles relevant to late effects and on the dynamic interplay of molecular, cytologic and histopathologic events that lead to altered physiologic and metabolic functions and their clinical manifestations. Chapters are also included on legal issues, economic aspects, nursing, psychological issues and quality of life.

The literature on the late effects of cancer treatment is widely scattered in different journals since all major organ systems are affected and management is based on a variety of medical and surgical treatments. The aim of ALERT Adverse Late Effects of Cancer Treatment is to offer a coherent multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer survivors. The central paradigm is that cytotoxic multimodal therapy results in a perpetual cascade of events that affects each major organ system differently and is expressed continually over time. Essentially, radiation and chemotherapy are intense biologic modifiers that allow for cancer cure and cancer survivorship but accelerate senescence of normal tissues and increase the incidence of age-related diseases and second malignant tumors. Volume 2 of this two-volume work comprehensively documents potential late effects in all the normal tissue anatomic sites in the human body. The detection, diagnosis, management and prevention of effects are all considered in detail, and prognostic outcomes are discussed. Radiation risk factors and interactions with chemotherapy effects are clearly presented. The text is accompanied by numerous supportive illustrations and tables.

Abstract
Liver disease has been identified as a leading cause of death in HIV-infected patients since the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in 1996. The HIV treatment community has been caught largely unaware of this emerging dilemma. Many HIV care providers are ill-equipped to understand and interpret liver injury patterns, or to provide comprehensive care and management for viral coinfections which they are not familiar with. HIV and Liver Disease provides a comprehensive update of the field covering the epidemiology, pathogenesis, management and treatment of liver disease in patients with HIV infection. The volume will help HIV care providers understand and interpret liver injury patterns, and/or provide comprehensive care and management for viral coinfections. Gastroenterologists and hepatologists will gain an understanding of complex drug regimens that are used to treat HIV and which may impact HCV and HBV treatment. Written by expert clinicians and researchers across multiple disciplines, HIV and Liver Disease will be of great value to gastroenterologists, hepatologists, infectious disease practitioners, as well as other health care providers who provide care or participate in research in the field of HIV.

Abstract
Liver Immunology: Principles and Practice, Second Editionbegins with important information about the epidemiology and mortality of liver disease worldwide. This information is followed by chapters related to basic immunology, application of liver immunology for diagnosis, and several excellent chapters thatprovide a solid foundation for understanding immune-mediated liver disease, including those associated with the biliary tree. A chapter on non-hepatic manifestations of immune mediatedliver disease helps provide context for how these diseases affect the patient overall. In addition, chapters discuss various discrete immunologically-mediated infectious liver disorders including those related to bacteria, parasites, and all of the classic viruses. Chapters on the traditional autoimmune liver diseases -- primary biliary cirrhosis, autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis as well as overlap syndrome are also included. The breadth of this comprehensive second edition is highlighted by chapters on alcoholic liver disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and drug-induced liver disease, among others. This invaluable new edition ends with a forward-looking view of future directions and how the field might meet the challenge of refractory patients. Developed by a renowned group of authors, Liver Immunology: Principles and Practice, Second Editionwill again serve as a comprehensive textbook by providing an excellent overview for this rapidly evolving field. It greatly adds to the understanding of the pathogenesis of these diseases, while also providing novel insights that can be harnessed into helping improve the care of patients afflicted with various immune-mediated diseases. This volume will again be a must-read for clinicians at all levels, investigators and students.

Abstract
Lo studio delle malformazioni fetali rappresenta uno degli argomenti pi©£ complessi nellÇÖambito della medicina fetale. Negli ultimi anni il ruolo della risonanza magnetica (RM) nellÇÖinquadramento diagnostico delle malformazioni fetali isolate e complesse © divenuto sempre pi©£ importante, attestandosi come esame di III livello. Tale incremento © stato possibile grazie allÇÖimplementazione tecnologica delle apparecchiature di RM e quindi allo sviluppo di sequenze veloci e ultra veloci. La RM, solitamente effettuata dopo unÇÖecografia di II livello a partire dalla 19a settimana di gravidanza, pu©ø quindi rappresentare, in casi selezionati, un importante completamento diagnostico nella valutazione di quadri malformativi complessi e nella programmazione di interventi terapeutici nella vita intrauterina e nel postnatale. ©ê necessario sottolineare lÇÖimportanza di centri di riferimento dedicati e la presenza di un team multidisciplinare per la corretta gestione dei piccoli pazienti. Il volume © suddiviso in tre parti. Dopo una prima parte pi©£ tecnica, nella seconda parte viene trattata lÇÖanatomia fetale in RM ponendo attenzione allÇÖevoluzione dei singoli organi durante la vita fetale; la terza parte analizza invece i principali quadri malformativi con particolare riguardo al distretto encefalico, toracico e addominale, il tutto associato ad unÇÖestesa documentazione iconografica. Il libro vuole essere di rapida e facile consultazione e rappresentare un punto di partenza per il radiologo e il neuroradiologo, nonch© per tutti gli specialisti interessati alla medicina fetale e in particolare alla risonanza magnetica. á.

Abstract
Lo sviluppo cognitivo, linguistico e motorio sono stati a lungo considerati e studiati come entit©á separate. Dagli anni Ottanta in poi diversi studi e ricerche in ambito neuropsicologico hanno invece cominciato a evidenziare e confermare una stretta correlazione tra aspetti linguistici, motorio-prassici e competenze relative alla sfera delle funzioni esecutive. Secondo le pi©£ recenti teorie le capacit©á linguistiche e cognitive emergono parallelamente allo sviluppo psicomotorio, e in particolare in rapporto alle abilit©á gestuali e alle capacit©á di produrre azioni intenzionali. Questo volume, frutto di molti anni di esperienza nellÇÖambito della clinica e soprattutto della terapia dei disturbi specifici del linguaggio (DSL) e dellÇÖapprendimento, propone un approfondimento delle tipologie di DSL in cui sono presenti deficit motori e prassici e prende in considerazione il concetto di disprassia. Vengono inoltre analizzati alcuni aspetti dello sviluppo motorio tipico e lÇÖimportanza della prensione e della deambulazione, quali momenti fondamentali dello sviluppo, oltre allo sviluppo dellÇÖocumolozione e a quello delle funzioni esecutive.

Abstract
Loco-regional anesthesia presents definite advantages in almost all surgical branches, since it couples a perfect anesthesia with a long postoperative analgesia. This discipline is constantly developing thanks to new drugs and new techniques. In the last decade the advent of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia has extended the study from the anatomic room to the virtual but real "in corpore viri" ecographic image thus increasing the success rate of this type of anesthesia. Together with electrostimulation, it has definitely increased the success rate of loco-regional anesthesia. Nonetheless, though supported by new fundamental tools, it is of the utmost importance for anesthesiologists to have a deep knowledge of the brachial plexus and of the topographic anatomy, on which the two first chapters are focused.

Abstract
Long awaited, this fine surgical atlas covers all aspects of neuro-otology and lateral skull base procedures in comprehensively in detail. The lavishly illustrated step-by-step guide is written by two American experts to ensure continuity between topics. The text is highly structured with step-by-step explanation of each surgical procedure and TIPS and TECHNIQUES sections as well as a PEARLS section in each chapter. More than 200 superb artwork illustrations describe each surgical procedure with nearly 600 additional intraoperative pictures with CT and MRI images to teach specific case examples. This offers a complete educational experience for the skull base surgeon in training and a thorough reference for the experienced surgeon.
