Abstract
Written by experienced authors, this book offers expert personal views on what the current problems in pharmacovigilance are and how they should be solved. This book stems from thoughts and ideas discussed in a series of meetings of the International Society of Pharmacovigilance (ISoP), where concerns were raised that the current pharmacovigilance system is not delivering optimally to improve therapeutics in clinical practice. Pharmacovigilance of the future must be an active and integral part of health care delivery, and focus more on science and practices that support health professionals and patients in day-to-day care situations. To achieve this, a dynamic and sustainable development of vigilance must take precedence over the current excessive preoccupations with data processing and regulations; all aspects of medicines use and their effects need to be considered; and all stakeholders must be involved and engaged in an open and constructive debate. The work is essential reading for anyone who has an interest in safer use of medicines. It is intended to be equally challenging and rewarding, and sets out to stimulate a continuous debate on how pharmacovigilance can better meet the needs of health professionals and patients to achieve the aim of wise therapeutic decision making.

Abstract
This book is intended as a comprehensive, practically oriented reference on pulmonary hypertension within the context of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). After an introductory chapter on pathophysiology, the various types of pulmonary hypertension that may be encountered in ACHD are discussed, highlighting the specifics observed within different patient categories. The diagnostic approach is then addressed in detail, and the last section of the book is devoted to management options, from conservative approaches to interventional treatment and the concept of treat and repair. Management in specific patient subjects, such as pregnant women, Fontan patients, and Down syndrome patients with Eisenmenger syndrome, is fully discussed, and guidance is also provided on palliative care. Pulmonary arterial hypertension related to congenital heart disease (PAH-CHD), despite significant similarities in lung pathohysiology, differs significantly from other types of PAH in terms ofámechanism of onset, natural history and management. Mistakes and pitfalls in the management of patients with PAH-CHD are often related to a lack of knowledge or expertise in this condition. Pulmonary Hypertension in Adult Congenital Heart Disease will be a valuable resource and learning tool for all who care for patients with ACHD, both in tertiary practice and general cardiology.

Abstract
Obesity is a relatively new and controversial field of medicine. Some of the controversies surrounding obesity can be dismissed as myths, others reveal the lack of consensus and comprehensive knowledge which exist in obesity and its complex relationship with diabetes and other serious long-term conditions. Controversies in Obesity takes the unique approach of assessing the controversies surrounding obesity, thus seeking to debunk the myths and highlight and explore the genuine science, whilst demonstrating areas where there is healthy debate. This book will appeal to primary care physicians, trainees and specialist nurses involved in care of the obese patient, and would be of interest to anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of the complex nature of obesity and its management.
