Abstract
Instant Workups: Clinical Guide to Obstetric and Gynecologic Care, by Theodore X. O'Connell, MD, is a portable pocket resource and quick refresher that helps you develop and refine your diagnostic skills. Practical and easy to use, it provides clear workup plans for the most common obstetric and gynecologic conditions, providing you with quick, focused guidance with the flexibility to adapt to each unique patient. Topics are organized alphabetically and cover the signs, symptoms, and abnormal lab readings for each condition. Replace information taken from memory or multiple references with one concise, indispensable book so you can make accurate diagnoses in less time! Covers the most commonly encountered obstetric and gynecologic conditions to provide you with a practical and useful manual for daily practice. Reflects how a patient actually presents by organizing alphabetically by presenting sign, symptom, or lab abnormality. Includes a brief background discussion on each topic, followed by lists of important related materials (such as medications that may contribute to each condition) and laboratory and/or radiographic tests to be ordered. Describes each diagnostic test so you can refresh or familiarize yourself with the purpose of the test. Provides a sound framework for building your workups using detailed treatment algorithms.

Abstract
The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has significantly improved the clinical outcome of HIV disease with increased survival rates. However, the introduction of HAART has generated a contrast in the cardiac manifestations of AIDS. In developed countries, we observed an approximate 30% reduction in the prevalence of HIV-associated cardiomyopathy, possibly related to a reduction of opportunistic infections and myocarditis. In developing countries, however, where the availablity of HAART is limited and the pathogenic impact of nutritional factors is significant, we observed an approximate 32% increase in the prevalence of HIV-associated cardiomyopathy and a related high mortality rate from congestive heart failure. Also, some HAART regimens in developed countries, especially those including protease inhibitors, may cause a iatrogenic metabolic syndrome (HIV-lipodystrophy syndrome) that is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. At the same time, the relapse of some oppurtunistic infections, with possible myocardial involvement, in HIV-infected patients receiving HAART, in the context of the recently described immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome, yielded an intriguing and complex profile of this double face of cardiology in AIDS in the HAART era. In this new edition of Cardiovascular Disease in AIDS new insights coming from basic and clinical research in the field of HIV-associated cardiovascular disease and antiretroviral therapy are reported, along with the clinical guidelines for a careful stratification of the cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular monitoring of HIV-infected patients receiving HAART. The authors offer a wide overview of the topic for specialists in cardiology and infectious diseases involved in the clinical management of HIV-infected patients.

Abstract
J.W. Thomas Byrd, MD, and other pioneers in the field have made remarkable advancements in hip arthroscopy that are presented with clarity and precision in this comprehensive second edition. Not only are the fundamentals covered that have made the first edition a classic text, such as discussions of patient selection, portal placement, and postoperative recovery, but also the latest arthroscopic techniques. New chapters written by a distinguished group of international contributors examine cutting-edge topics, including endoscopic treatments, arthroscopic assisted and combined open hip procedures, and hip arthroscopy for athletes. Current imaging techniques involving MRI and injection dyes are outlined as well. The text reflects a shift in focus from performing diagnostic arthroscopy to performing operative arthroscopy based on an improved understanding of pathomechanics and pathophysiology. An emphasis is placed on helping orthopedic residents and orthopedists make wise decisions regarding procedure selection and implementation. Related outcomes data and the dos and don'ts of techniques are detailed. In addition, more than 300 illustrations, many in color, show step-by-step how procedures are performed. Orthopedists looking to apply state-of-the-art minimally invasive hip techniques will find this text to be an ideal guide.

Abstract
The last decade has seen many dramatic changes in cancer chemotherapy, with the introduction of a number of new forms of treatment as well as important developments in the more traditional fields of cytotoxic and hormonal therapy. This book summarises the whole range of systemic cancer therapies, explaining their mode of action and potential side-effects, as well as their clinical applications. The book is intended as an introductory text for junior doctors, nurses and medical students. It is divided into three sections: The theoretical basis of cancer chemotherapy: following an historical introduction, the different treatment modalities are explained in the context of basic tumour biology. Practical aspects: covering dosing and drug delivery together with an extensive discussion of possible side-effects, and their management. Chemotherapy in the management of cancer: explaining the place of drug treatment, and the outcomes that can be expected from chemotherapy, in all the major cancers. Written by a single author, the book has a consistency of style which makes a wealth of complex information both readily accessible and easily understandable.

Abstract
Le bevande analcoliche, e specificamente le bevande dolci, sono spesso considerate responsabili (assieme ai cosiddetti "fast food") dell'epidemia di soprappeso ed obesit©á che si osserva nel mondo occidentale. In realt©á, le evidenze disponibili nella letteratura scientifica non permettono di definire con precisione il ruolo di queste bevande nel determinare l'aumento di peso: e soprattutto non permettono di differenziarne il contributo dal complesso dello stile alimentare e di vita tipico delle societ©á moderne, caratterizzato da un dispendio energetico molto ridotto e da un apporto calorico complessivamente elevato. La tendenza a sviluppare soprappeso ed obesit©á, tra l'altro, poggia probabilmente su un solido substrato genetico che ne favorisce la comparsa in presenza di una ricca disponibilit©á di cibo. L'aumento dell'attivit©á fisica ed una moderazione responsabile nell'apporto di alimenti e bevande rappresenta la strategia migliore per controllare il fenomeno dell'obesit©á nella nostra societ©á.
