Essential Manual of 24 Hour Blood Pressure Management Book Excerpt:

ESSENTIAL MANUAL OF 24-HOUR BLOOD PRESSURE MANAGEMENT Hypertension is one of the greatest threats to human health. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 1.13 billion people worldwide have hypertension. In 2017, new guidelines for managing hypertension were published by the American Hypertension Association (AHA), guidelines which lowered the diagnosis thresholds of hypertension, and thereby increased the prevalence of hypertension. As such, hypertension is now recognized as a more serious and widespread a condition than ever before. In this new edition of the Essential Manual of 24-Hour Blood Pressure Management, the author emphasizes that lowering the blood pressure (BP) and restoring the BP profile with adequate circadian rhythm is essential for a long life without cardiovascular events. The author also introduces updated evidence for managing hypertension throughout 24-hour periods, from morning to nocturnal hypertension. The Essential Manual of 24-Hour Blood Pressure Management, Second Edition, will be an essential companion for doctors who wish to provide evidence-based medicine and be familiar with the most cutting edge technology on monitoring BP. Medical researchers and students will also value the author’s many insights, drawn from his distinguished career.

Cancer Epidemiology Among Asian Americans Book Excerpt:

Cancer Epidemiology in Asian Americans is a comprehensive volume that provides the most current research on cancer etiology within this fast growing population sub-group in the United States. The book explores epidemiologic methods that are typically used in migrant studies, providing descriptive epidemiology of cancer patterns separately in Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and other Asian ethnic groups including Asian Indians, Koreans, Vietnamese, and other Southeast Asians. A major focus of the volume provides reviews of analytic risk factors for specific cancer sites including lung, colorectal, prostate, breast, liver and more. These chapters aim to explain the increases or decreases in incidence rates of various cancers upon migration, paying attention to changing risk factor prevalence, the importance of timing of exposures, and other co-factors important in the etiology of these cancers. Genetic determinants and gene-environment relationships associated with specific cancers are also discussed.. This first of its kind volume that is devoted to studies of cancer in Asian Americans provides a foundation to better understanding of environmental and lifestyle causes of cancer in this group, identifying gaps in our knowledge, and potential strategies for prevention.

Debulking in Cardiovascular Interventions and Revascularization Strategies Book Excerpt:

Debulking in Cardiovascular Interventions and Revascularization Strategies: Between a Rock and the Heart aims to provide a comprehensive overview on the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of resistant lesions as well as tailored debulking processes in revascularization strategies. Cardiovascular interventionalists and surgeons alike frequently encounter technical challenges and increased risk when attempting to diagnose and treat resistant cardiovascular lesions, bio-tissues and vessels. Calcified plaques, fibrotic or thrombotic lesions, total occlusions, degenerative plaques, complex lesions and vessels impose morphologic obstacles to the safe and effective delivery and deployment of balloons and stents. In such instances, a debulking strategy involving the actual drilling and extraction of the targeted plaque/bio-tissue constitutes a unique option that ensures safe and efficacious subsequent balloon dilatations and stenting. A range of topics is included in the book, from the characteristics and constituents of various resistant targets and bio-tissues, to the corresponding options of debulking methods, and finally the technologic and pharmacologic means available for application. The book also provides an up-to-date description of related management solutions and tools, exploring the medical issues pertaining to the patients with these targets; procedural results and clinical outcomes as related to debulking strategies and associated diagnostic and therapeutic technology and revascularization options. Review and discussion of the pathophysiology of cardiovascular resistant lesions Analysis of the impact on revascularization outcome of cardiovascular lesions/bio-tissues which exhibit resistance to standard revascularization Introduction of the concept of debulking for revascularization of cardiovascular diseases: comprehensive description Presentation of the clinical scenarios associated with resistant cardiovascular lesions and bio-tissue that require debulking Delineation of various state-of-the -art diagnostic imaging modalities for detection and demonstration of the lesions and tissues that require debulking Presentation of the expansive array of mechanical revascularization tools available for debulking Description of surgical debulking approaches to resistant cardiovascular lesions Summary of debulking outcomes
