Abstract
This book considers paradigmatic clinical cases in order to cast light on key issues relating to elective or emergency stent implantation and the use of oral anticoagulation (OAC) in patients with atrial fibrillation. The topics addressed include the optimal periprocedural antithrombotic treatment (uninterrupted vs interrupted OAC, intraprocedural use of heparin and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors, etc.), the most appropriate type of stent (bare metal vs drug eluting vs "bioactive"), the optimal regimen (e.g., triple therapy of OAC, aspirin, and clopidogrel vs the combination of OAC and a single antiplatelet agent), and the most suitable duration of the antithrombotic treatment prescribed at discharge (1 vs 6-12 months). The case-based management recommendations will be of wide practical value in the current health care context, where percutaneous coronary intervention is available even to patients with relevant co-morbidities, such as those warranting long-term OAC, and the indications for OAC are much broader than in the past. The book will appeal especially to clinical and interventional cardiologists, internal medicine specialists, hematologists, and family physicians and will also be of interest to cardiology and internal medicine residents and fellows.

Abstract
This book presents the latest scientific knowledge on inherited and acquired bone marrow failure syndromes, describing the advances in understanding of genetics and pathophysiology that have been achieved as a result of high-throughput DNA sequencing, RNA expression studies, and modern biochemistry techniques. The full range of relevant conditions is covered, including acquired aplastic anemia, Fanconi anemia, ribosomopathies, telomeropathies, dyskeratosis congenita, Shwachman-Diamond syndrome, Diamond-Blackfan anemia, and congenital neutropenias and thrombocytopenias. In addition, it is explained how the study of these rare diseases has uncovered important new science and elucidated the pathophysiology of more common hematological and oncological diseases. A treatment-specific chapter describes options ranging from the conventional to the cutting edge. Bone Marrow Failure will be of value for both trainee and practicing hematologists and oncologists.

Abstract
This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date compendium of all aspects of brain tumors in children. After introductory chapters on the epidemiology of brain tumors, the book will provide readers with state-of-the art chapters on the principals of radiation therapy, neurosurgery and neuroimaging. Subsequent chapters discuss the biology and treatment of specific types of brain tumors. The concluding chapters present critical information relevant to survivorship, neurocognitive and other late effects, and the global challenges to better diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors in children. This book is co-authored by experts in the treatment of pediatric brain tumors. All of the authors are internationally recognized authorities and they offer an evidence-based consensus on the biology and treatment of brain tumors. This handbook has far-reaching applicability to the clinical diagnosis and management of brain tumors in children and will prove valuable to specialists, generalists and trainees alike.

Abstract
While the majority of patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) achieve acceptable angina relief through medical therapy, coronary artery bypass grafting and percutaneous coronary intervention, a growing number are not candidates for these procedures. Standard procedures are largely palliative, and symptom recurrence is relatively common, while the increase in obesity and type 2 diabetes may result in a potential explosion in severe, diffuse CAD. As these trends continue, the population of patients who fail to achieve adequate symptomatic improvement through standard medical and revascularization strategies will grow exponentially. Therapeutic options for these patients are currently limited, but experimental and developing strategies are appearing, including transmyocardial laser revascularization, therapeutic angiogenesis, spinal cord stimulation, external counterpulsation, various novel medical therapies and complex percutaneous and surgical revascularization strategies. Coronary Artery Disease: New Approaches without Traditional Revascularization is a comprehensive and clinically oriented review of the epidemiology and basic science foundation for studies in this challenging group of patients. Current and novel treatment strategies are put in the context of past failures and future directions, and the Editors and their carefully chosen group of contributors provide a fascinating insight into the direction and focus for clinical practice and research in this area. As such this book is an important reference not only for clinical cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and interventionalists but also researchers into novel diagnostic measures, new surgical techniques and other treatment regiments in CAD.

Abstract
This powerful history describes the daily progression of the Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa and struck Europe and America from December 2013 to June 2016. A case study on a massive scale, it follows the narratives of numerous patients as well as the journey of physicians and scientists from discovery to action and from tracking to containment. The unfolding story reveals ever-shifting complexities such as the varied paths the infection took from country to country, the multiple responses of community members, and the occurrence of flare-ups when the outbreak was seemingly over. The book's finely-documented present-tense reporting records key facts, events, and observations, including: Routes of Ebola transmission, incubation, symptoms, short- and long-term effects on survivors; Early attempts to understand and contain the virus and curb practices contributing to its spread; Medical, governmental, and public responses, from local education programs to global efforts; Communication and conflict between healthcare workers and communities; Social and economic outcomes of Ebola in the affected nations. Ebola remains incurable, although a vaccine is now available. For members of the medical community, public health officials, medical historians, scholarly professionals, and interested laypeople, A Day-by-Day Chronicle of the 2013-2016 Ebola Outbreak makes starkly clear what we can learn from these events not only for future outbreaks of Ebola, but also for the emergence of as-yet unknown diseases.
