Abstract
In Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease, a panel of distinguished leaders in the field of medicine, podiatry, and vascular and endovascular therapy assimilate the latest literature on these issues and others for an in-depth review of the management of peripheral vascular disease. Providing an overview of the management of diabetes and diabetic foot changes as well as providing a view of cutting-edge and emerging topics in optimization of arterial status, this important title addresses pathophysiology, anatomy, diagnosis and management of diabetic peripheral vascular disease, emphasizing a multi-disciplinary approach. The first chapter of the book provides an overview of this complex disease process and discusses the teamwork required for optimal management. The chapters continue with the basic pathophysiology of diabetic atherosclerosis and a contemporary review of the management of diabetes. The genesis of diabetic foot ulceration and prevention and management strategies is covered, as is the effects of neuropathy and microvascular changes in the diabetic foot. In addition, Diabetes and Peripheral Vascular Disease covers the microbiology of diabetic foot infections, the role of endovascular interventions and vascular surgery as well as the management of the complications of these procedures, the process of amputation for those patients who have progressed beyond a limb salvage situation, and the effects of diabetes on the cerebrovascular system as well as its implications in patients with aortoiliac disease. An invaluable addition to the literature on diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, the book will be of great interest internists, family practitioners, surgeons, podiatrists, wound care specialists, and vascular specialists. Students, residents, and fellows in surgical and medical specialties should also find this book of significant value and interest.

Abstract
In Diabetes & C-Peptide: Scientific and Clinical Aspects, a renowned group of leading researchers and physicians offers a comprehensive overview of the role of C-Peptide in type 1 diabetes. The book is organized in five sections. An Introductory section provides the background and key features of C-peptide's physiological function and how its deficiency contributes to complications. The second section describes up-to-date information on the biochemical and molecular actions of C-peptide, including membrane binding, interactions with insulin as well as the interaction between C-peptide and zinc and effects on microvascular vasoreactivity. The third section summarizes in vivo animal studies of the type 1 diabetic complications. The fourth section reviews the clinical efforts of C-peptide on inflammation, cardiovascular complication, neuropathy and nephropathy. Finally, in the Conclusions section, a summary of the present state of C-peptide, outstanding questions, and the likely direction of the field are offered. Developed by the foremost investigators in the rapidly moving field of C-peptide research, Diabetes & C-Peptide: Scientific and Clinical Aspects is an important contribution to the literature for all researchers and physicians concerned about type 1 diabetes.

Abstract
In The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management, 3rd Edition, a distinguished panel of clinicians provides a thorough update of the significant improvements in knowledge surrounding the pathogenesis of diabetic foot problems, as well as the optimal healthcare treatment for this debilitating condition. The authors, many practicing at the famous Joslin-Beth Israel Deaconess Foot Center, again illuminate the successful new multidisciplinary approach now clearly required for the successful treatment of diabetic foot. Drawing on the experiences of diabetologists, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, infectious disease specialists, orthotists, plastic and orthopedic surgeons, this invaluable third edition, so timely given the continued rise of diabetes and its complications, clearly describes established techniques known to be effective. This updated edition blends new knowledge with the time-tested principles of diabetic foot management and will be of significant value to all physicians and researchers with an interest in a state-of-the-art understanding of diabetic foot.

Abstract
Diabetes and hypertension have evolved as two of the modern day epidemics affecting millions of people around the world. These two common co-morbidities lead to substantial increase in cardiovascular disease, the major cause of morbidity and mortality of adults around the world. In Diabetes and Hypertension: Evaluation and Management, a panel of renowned experts address a range of critical topics -- from basic concepts in evaluation and management of diabetes and hypertension, such as dietary interventions, to evaluation and management of secondary hypertension in clinical practice. Other chapters focus on high cardiovascular risk populations such as those with coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease and minority patients. In addition, evolving concepts and new developments in the field are presented in other chapters, such as prevention of type 2 diabetes and the epidemic of sleep apnea and its implication for diabetes and hypertension evaluation and management. An important title covering two of the most troubling disorders of our time, Diabetes and Hypertension: Evaluation and Management will provide the busy practitioner with cutting edge knowledge in the field as well as practical information that can translate into better care provided to the high-risk population of diabetics and hypertensive patients.
Contents
Epidemiology of Hypertension in Diabetes -- Evaluation and Management of Secondary Hypertension -- Hypertension in African-Americans -- Hypertension in Chronic Kidney Disease -- Diabetes and Hypertension in People with Sleep Apnea: Risk Evaluation and Therapeutic Rationale -- Resistant Hypertension: Etiology, Evaluation and Management -- Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease -- Hypertension, Diabetes and the Eye -- Predictors of Kidney Disease in Diabetic, Hypertensive Patients -- Antihypertensive Therapy and New Onset Diabetes -- Global Cardiovascular Risk Reduction in People with Diabetes Mellitus and Hypertension -- Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes: Evidence from Clinical Trials -- Dietary and Lifestyle Approaches to Hypertension in the Population with Diabetes -- Novel Pharmacological Approaches in Hypertension Treatment.

Abstract
Edited by renown researchers from one of the oldest and most experienced diabetic foot centers in the world, The Diabetic Foot, Second Edition, features established and effective treatments to diabetic foot disease as well as new developments in basic and clinical research. Considerably expanded and updated from the acclaimed first edition, its topics range from proven preventive strategies to cutting-edge wound care techniques that are drawn from new developments such as growth factors and living skin equivalents. Also included are new chapters on the physiology and pathophysiology of wound healing, preparation of wound bed, and new information on the development of foot imaging and treatment. In keeping with the spirit of the first edition, this volume gives the reader a full view of diabetic foot disease and emphasizes the need for a multidisciplinary approach in its management. The Diabetic Foot, Second Edition is an essential reference for the growing problem of diabetes. It will be a great value to diabetologists, endocrinologists, internists, family physicians, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons in finding a thorough presentation for treating diabetic foot disease.
