Abstract
The abdomen is the area from the bottom of your rib cage to your pelvic (hip) bones. Abdominal pain can be caused by many things, including: indigestion, constipation (not being able to poop), gas, infection (either bacterial or viral), food poisoning, ulcers, appendicitis, gallbladder or liver disease, kidney stones, bladder infections, menstrual pain, and muscle spasms (muscle movements you cannot control). Most abdominal pain goes away without treatment. This pamphlet gives instructions for when your exam and test results suggest there is nothing seriously wrong or life-threatening. Follow-up instructions and symptoms that need immediate medical attention are given.

Abstract
This comprehensive book provides not only the stages in the development of this unique and specialized field but also updates on the current state of research and development of apolipoprotein mimetics as therapeutic modalities for various lipid-mediated disorders. The book consists of 11 chapters all written by leading scientists from well-reputed laboratories in the USA. After an introduction by Dr. Godfrey Getz, Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago and the Associate Editor of the Journal Lipid Research, the book presents a narration of how a theory can lead to the discovery of treatment modalities to several devastating diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis; asthma; atherosclerosis, chronic rejection of transplanted hearts and cancer. Present therapies for most of these diseases are not adequate. Using the models of two long anti-atherogenic and anti-inflammatory proteins (apolipoprotein A-I and apolipoprotein E with 243 and 299 amino acids, respectively) short mimetic peptides of 18 to 28 amino acid residues in length, which can be produced either synthetically or genetically in edible fruits and vegetables, have been shown to exert profound biological effects in a large number of animal models of diseases. The book also presents novel ideas, highly unexpected mechanisms of action in animal models and even in initial clinical studies in humans, which can lead to additional improvements in basic and clinical research in biological science. All the chapters are written by experts in their respective fields who have contributed immensely to the literature. This is the first compendium of this growing field presented in the form of a book.

Abstract
This concise and practical book is the first of its kind to examine the use of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in relation to blood-borne infectious diseases: human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV). The book opens with a discussion of the impact of these viruses on male and female fertility, followed by specific chapters of each of them, including ART with HIV and HCV serodiscordant couples (where either the male or female is positive) and the detection and impact of HBV and HCV in human gametes and embryos. An important character on laboratory safety when performing ART with blood-borne viruses follows, and the book concludes with a discussion of ART in austere and resource-poor settings, where these infections are often dominant due to lack of treatment and access to vaccines. Written and edited by an international array of experts in reproductive medicine, Assisted Reproductive Technologies and Infectious Diseases explores questions, techniques, and related issues with the aim of effectively helping clinicians working with serodiscordant couples wishing to have children.

Abstract
In recent years, progress in oncologic therapy has achieved important goals and a consequent prognostic improvement for patients with malignancy, but cardiac toxicity is often a concern and can have long-term functional or structural effects on the heart. This book is written for the cardiologist working in a clinical environment without support from a specific specialized cardio-oncologist team, and who are called to perform a clinical consultation to evaluate a cardiac condition and the eligibility for a patient to receive chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Cardiac Management of Oncology Patients: Clinical Handbook for Cardio-Oncology is also designed for oncologists and cardiologists to evaluate if a cancer treatment has produced toxic effects on a patient who has either recently or historically been treated with chemo or radiotherapy. The reader will discover more about the cardiac damage potentially created by the oncologic therapy that they are considering for the treatment of their patients.
Contents

Abstract
Cardiac tumors were once a nosographic entity of scarce clinical interest because of the rarity and of the intrinsic diagnostic and therapeutic impossibilities, and were considered a fatal morbid entity. It has now become a topical subject due to advances in clinical imaging (echo, magnetic resonance, computed tomography) as well as innovation in technologies of in-vivo diagnosis. Cardiac Tumor Pathology presents a spectacular example of these advances with clinico-pathologic correlations. This timely volume covers history, epidemiology, demographics, clinical diagnosis, pathology, imaging by echo, CT and MRI of both benign and malignant cardiac tumors, either primary or secondary. Chemotherapy of malignant neoplasms is also addressed. Special emphasis is given to clinico-pathologic correlations. With all chapters written by experts in their fields, this volume will serve as a useful resource for physicians dealing with, and interested in, this special branch of cardiac oncology and will represent a useful guide for pathologists, clinicians, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and radiologists as well as for postgraduate students training in these areas.

Abstract
This book presents 100 challenging cases encountered in vascular surgery practice that were selected from the author’s vascular registry of 7,000 vascular reconstructions (endovascular and open). Chapters include difficult surgical problems of patients with aortic, visceral and peripheral arterial aneurysms, with expert management of mycotic, inflammatory and ruptured aneurysms and major complications like aorto-duodenal fistula, graft infection or inferior vena cava injury. These reconstructions are representative of the “real world” experience of vascular surgery in the United States, and the selection of cases were based on either difficulty with case selection, or complex operative or an endovascular technique. The natural history of vascular reconstructions often leads to secondary reconstructions, which are far more complex and therefore are included in significant numbers in this text. Both good and unsatisfactory results have been included and the lessons learned from the poor outcomes are emphasized. Invited commentaries from leading experts in the field have been added to a few chapters offering an alternate viewpoint in the management of patients with complex pathology. Challenging Arterial Reconstructions: 100 Clinical Cases serves as an invaluable resource to vascular surgeons that are learning or regularly performing open surgical or endovascular interventions.

Abstract
This book outlines the management, treatment and consequences of chest wall deformities. Incorporating all the possible origin of these deformities--congenital or acquired which arise either post-traumatically or after surgery on the lungs--it also describes deformities associated with spinal conditions, for example kyphosis, and other defects such as Marfan syndrome. It goes into detail on the most common congenital defect, pectus excavatum. Chest Wall Deformities and Corrective Procedures describes the diagnosis and appearance of patients with the condition, which is important as the symptoms do not always present in a typical manner in every case. Most severe cases present intolerance to exercise, pain and fatigue, while psychological symptoms can be common, which can cause considerable patient distress. The book defines the treatment options available, their possible complications and future necessities for public education.

Abstract
This issue of Recent Results in Cancer Research presents a comprehensive review of current understanding of chromosomal instability in cancer and of strategies to use this information for better treatment of patients with cancer. Cancer is a disease of the chromosomes, and chromosomal instability in cancer disrupts gene function by either inactivating tumor suppressor genes or activating growth-promoting oncogenes. The chromosomal basis for these aberrations is either translocations, which change the integrity of genes, or abnormal numbers of chromosomes, a condition referred to as aneuploidy, which results in abnormal gene expression levels. Such structural or numerical chromosomal aberrations are specific for distinct tumor entities. The degree of chromosomal instability and the degree of intratumor heterogeneity have profound consequences for disease outcome and for therapeutic stratification.

Abstract
This book examines in detail the clinical implications of those diseases that either are primarily triggered by air pollution or represent direct consequences of air pollutants. The aim is to provide medical practitioners with practical solutions to issues in diagnosis and treatment while simultaneously furnishing other interested parties with crucial information on the field. The book introduces the concept that air pollution-related diseases constitute a new class of pathologies. A wide range of conditions mainly attributable to air pollution are discussed, covering different body systems and pollution impacts in subsets of the population. In addition to presenting state of the art overviews of clinical aspects, the book carefully examines the implications of current knowledge for social and public health strategies aimed at disease prevention and prophylaxis. The Clinical Handbook of Air Pollution-Related Diseases will greatly assist doctors and healthcare workers when dealing with the consequences of air pollution in their everyday practice and will provide researchers, industry, and policymakers with valuable facts and insights.

Abstract
A huge number of therapeutic studies has been published in rheumatology and clinical immunology. This number grows substantially by the year. As such, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of this multitude of studies and the ensuing therapeutic trends. Further to this, a particular study can be referred to in a variety of ways, either as a shortened version of the title or an acronym, adding to the confusion. The book Clinical Trials in Rheumatology, Second Edition, provides an updated summary of the important studies in the field for easy reference. Every study is shown with name, acronym (if in existence), authors, complete citation, study design, and a short overview of the trial's data and main conclusions. An acronym finder is supplied at the beginning of the book. This book is a valuable reference tool for rheumatologists and other clinical specialties, as well as for research scientists interested in immunomodulatory and selected other drug therapies in rheumatologic diseases.

Abstract
This book considers several clinical and interventional topics for which there is either uncertainty, continued debate and/or no consensus based on current guidelines. Leading international experts explore each controversy, probing the existing evidence and current opinions. Each chapter outlines the unresolved issues and includes a balanced and scholarly discussion of the subject, concluding with possible solutions and learned opinions on the subject. While there are many guidelines in cardiology, new and on-going trials that address new treatments indicate that there are still many unanswered questions. Controversies in Cardiology provides a concise approach to aid busy cardiologists and trainees in choosing the most suitable management solutions and correctly applying these to their patients.

Abstract
This textbook reviews the novel techniques employed in corneal transplantation. It will assist fellows and corneal surgeons in using these techniques to best effect and in selecting patients for surgical procedures, taking into account the benefits and risks. Corneal transplantation has been performed for more than 100 years. Until 15 years ago the state-of-the art type of transplantation was penetrating keratoplasty. Since the start of this millennium, however, important advances have been made in developing new surgical techniques. Today, the vast majority of keratoplasty procedures are performed as delicate lamellar procedures, either with the assistance of fine microkeratomes or femtosecond lasers or using very advanced surgical dissection procedures. Corneal Transplantation provides detailed information on these and other advances, which have helped patients undergoing keratoplasty to achieve a much faster visual recovery and a more stable eye with less risk of rejection episodes.

Sudden Infant Death - pathology
Abstract
Crib death (SIDS) is the most frequent cause of death for infants during the first year, striking 1 out of every 700-1,000. Scarce knowledge in the field of SIDS and its pathology has led to a continued and growing concern with finding an explanation, with the goal of being able to either predict or quickly diagnose the infant or term fetus. A systematic study of the autonomic nervous system and cardiac system has been performed on a large number of infants and fetuses who died suddenly and unexpectedly, as well as in age-matched control cases. The neurological and cardiac findings are described here, and the relationship between SIDS and unexplained fetal death is discussed. This book helps pathologists, forensic pathologists, pediatricians, obstetrics, and neonatologists in recognizing all potential morphological substrata and puts forward a well-researched postmortem study for use in a standardized autopsy protocol for use in all cases of sudden unexpected infant and fetal death.

The skin is the most accessible organ of the body and also the most frequently injured organ in physical abuse of children. The interpretation of skin lesions, however, is not always simple. In recent years, many reports have been published on pediatric dermatological disorders and accidental injuries that were unjustly regarded as physical signs of child abuse. Knowledge of the differential diagnosis of unexplained skin findings is essential for accurate diagnosis and of vital importance given that errors in either direction (false positive or false negative) can have disastrous consequences.

Abstract
This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.
This open access book examines the triangle between family, gender, and health in Europe from a demographic perspective. It helps to understand patterns and trends in each of the three components separately, as well as their interdependencies. It overcomes the widely observable specialization in demographic research, which usually involves researchers studying either family or fertility processes or focusing on health and mortality. Coverage looks at new family and partnership forms among the young and middle-aged, their relationship with health, and the pathways through which they act. Among the old, lifelong family biography and present family situation are explored. Evidence is provided that partners advancing in age start to resemble each other more closely in terms of health, with the health of the partner being a crucial factor of an individual’s own health. Gender-specific health outcomes and pathways are central in the designs of the studies and the discussion of the results. The book compares twelve European countries reflecting different welfare state regimes and offers country-specific studies conducted in Austria, Germany, Italy--all populations which have received less attention in the past--and Sweden. As a result, readers discover the role of different concepts of family and health as well as comparisons within European countries and ethnic groups.
