Abstract
To date, diet programs and medical therapies for the treatment of obesity have had limited success. Bariatric surgery, however, provides a means of effective weight loss for many of those with morbid obesity. Most of these weight loss procedures are performed with a variety of techniques that continue to evolve. Each technique is associated with unique challenges and complications and it is important for the clinician to be knowledgeable about the endoscopic management of these patients. Additionally, as endoscopic technology evolves it may offer more than just the diagnosis and treatment of complications. Endoscopic therapy may soon allow less invasive bariatric revision procedures as well as a variety of primary obesity therapies for various patient populations. Bariatric Endoscopy reviews the management of obesity, normal post-surgical anatomy, endoscopic and medical management of post-surgical complications, and future endoscopic therapies for obesity management. Organized into five sections, the volume covers an obesity overview, traditional therapy, endoscopy and the bariatric patient, medical management of post-surgical complications, and the future role of endoscopy in obesity management. Detailed illustrations are also provided for surgical procedures, complications and obesity management chapters. Authored by authorities in the field, Bariatric Endoscopy is an indispensible tool for the gastroenterologist or surgical endoscopist as they care for patients with complicated bariatric issues.

Abstract
This book systematically focuses on central sleep apneas, analyzing their relationship especially with heart failure and discussing recent research results and emerging treatment strategies based on feedback modulation. The opening chapters present historical background information on Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR), clarify terminology, and explain the mechanics and chemistry of respiration. Following a description of the physiology of respiration, the pathophysiology underlying central apneas in different disorders and particularly in heart failure is discussed. The similarities and differences of obstructive and central apneas are then considered. The book looks beyond the concept of sleep apnea to daytime CSR and periodic breathing during effort and contrasts the opposing views of CSR as a compensatory phenomenon or as detrimental to the failing heart. The diagnostic tools currently in use for the detection of CSR are thoroughly reviewed, with guidance on interpretation of findings. The book concludes by describing the various forms of treatment that are available for CSR and by explaining how to select patients for treatment.

Abstract
The availability and diffusion of high-performance technologies has strengthened the role of CT angiography and MR angiography as simple, reliable techniques for the characterization and treatment planning of the principal diseases of the cardiovascular system, an understanding of which has become essential for all radiologists. The aim of this book is to provide concise but thorough information and guidance on the main methods and examination techniques used when performing high-quality CT angiography and MR angiography studies in a broad range of clinical settings. The lucid text is supported by a large number of case studies and is rich in advice on image interpretation and practical suggestions for the evaluation and reporting of the examinations. Importantly, a central feature is detailed comparison of the advantages and limitations of the two techniques in various diseases and vascular regions; the book will therefore enable both trainee and expert radiologists to understand their indications and to select the most appropriate technique in different contexts.

Abstract
This book offers a comprehensive overview of thoracic pathologies of surgical interest involving the lung, mediastinum, esophagus, and chest wall with the aim of providing both radiologists and thoracic surgeons with a reference of high value in everyday clinical practice. Oncologic and non-oncologic conditions are reviewed from both the radiological and the surgical point of view, each one being documented with the aid of high-quality radiologic images from several modalities (including X-ray, fluoroscopy, CT, MR, and PET), illustrations/artwork, and high-definition images from the surgical table. The postoperative anatomy and complications associated with thoracic surgery procedures are also described in detail, with provision of imaging examples that highlight aspects of importance in differentiating between normal and abnormal findings. Written by experts in the field, Diagnostic Imaging for Thoracic Surgery is exceptional in combining precise descriptions of surgical procedures with key teaching points in imaging interpretation.

Abstract
This is the first comprehensive review of the edge-to-edge technique for mitral repair, which was introduced into the surgical armamentarium in 1991 by one of the authors, Ottavio Alfieri. The surgical technique employed in edge-to-edge repair today provides the basis for the only reliable method of percutaneous correction of degenerative mitral regurgitation. The book traces the evolution of the edge-to-edge technique from a surgical to a percutaneous approach, documenting indications, contraindications, technical aspects, controversies, and clinical outcomes. Detailed attention is devoted to the MitraClip procedure, which reproduces the Alfieri stitch percutaneously and has to date been used in more than 20,000 patients worldwide. The state of the art in MitraClip therapy is described, with clear explanation of when and how to use the MitraClip system. The reader will learn all aspects of percutaneous edge-to-edge repair, which is recommended for use in carefully selected patients in the new ESC/EACTS guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease and in the ESC guidelines on heart failure. The group at San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, has accumulated by far the largest experience in the world with the technique and over the years has been very active in its promotion and scientific evaluation. This book reflects that depth of knowledge and will be of great interest to cardiac surgeons and interventional and clinical cardiologists.
Contents
1. The genesis of the edge-to-edge technique -- 2. The principle: from computational model to clinical validation -- 3. Technical aspects: sternotomy and minimally invasive surgery -- 4. Is there a role for the edge-to-edge technique in robotic mitral valve repair? -- 5. Echocardiographic assessment of a double orifice mitral valve: tips and tricks -- 6. The early phase of clinical application: lessons learned -- 7. Early and long-term results of the EE repair -- 8. Transaortic edge-to-edge technique in patients with hyperthrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy -- 9. Mitral stenosis after EE repair: is it an issue? -- 10. Current surgical indications and contraindications -- 11. The case of surgical EE repair without annuloplasty: now we know -- 12. Evolution of EE repair: from surgery to percutaneous -- 13. State of the art in Mitraclip therapy: who, when and how -- 14. Clinical results of the percutaneous EE repair: lights and shadows -- 15. Future perspectives on percutaneous EE repair -- 16.

Abstract
This book provides a broad overview of quality health care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). It focuses on providing the reader a practical approach to dealing with the health and well-being of people with IDD in general terms as well as in dealing with specific conditions. In addition, it offers the reader a perspective from many different points of view in the health care delivery system as well as in different parts of the world. This is the 3rd, and much expanded edition, of a text that was first published by Rubin and Crocker in 1989 (Lea and Fibiger). The second edition was published by Rubin and Crocker in 2006 (Paul Brookes) and has been used as a formal required text in training programs for physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners as well as by administrators who are responsible for programs serving people with IDD. This book is considered the "Bible" in the field of health care for people with IDD since 1989 when the first edition came out.

Abstract
Just a few years ago, dire predictions of escalating technology costs and adverse demographics informed a downbeat view of the future of medicine in which struggling governments would fall behind in their public commitments to healthcare. This volume is part of today's more optimistic assessment in which huge efficiencies can be wrought through 'personalized' medicine: patients, for example, have no need to visit clinics when biochemical monitoring can be achieved in the comfort of their own homes, the results sent wirelessly, in real time, to the specialist's database. With contributions spanning the experiences of 15 nations from the USA to Turkey, Taiwan and the UK, the contents of this book show what is possible in implementing personalized medicine in a heterogeneous set of contexts. Today's burgeoning use of advanced early and predictive diagnostics, targeted prevention and personalized medical approaches will accelerate as advances in patient profiling and innovative bio/medical technologies come on stream. They could enable many of tomorrow's elderly to reach 100 years of age in good physical and mental health, as actively contributing members of society. The scope of coverage in this volume provides a comprehensive and unrivaled review of historical, cultural, demographic, ethnic, socio-economic, political, and other aspects of personalized medicine. It shows that reaping the benefits of this kind of medical care requires careful regulations in healthcare and skilful political planning.
