Generalized hypermobility has been known since ancient times, and a clinical description of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is said to have first been recorded by Hippocrates in 400 BC. Hypermobility syndromes occur frequently, but the wide spectrum of possible symptoms, coupled with a relative lack of awareness and recognition, are the reason that they are frequently not recognized, or remain undiagnosed. This book is an international, multidisciplinary guide to hypermobility syndromes, and EDS in particular. It aims to create better awareness of hypermobility syndromes among health professionals, including medical specialists, and to be a guide to the management of such syndromes for patients and practitioners. It is intended for use in daily clinical practice rather than as a reference book for research or the latest developments, and has been written to be understandable for any healthcare worker or educated patient without compromise to the scientific content. The book is organized as follows: chapters on classifications and genetics are followed by chapters on individual types, organ (system) manifestations and complications, and finally ethics and therapeutic strategies, with an appendix on surgery and the precautions which should attend it. A special effort has been made to take account of the perspective of the patient; two of the editors have EDS. The book will be of interest to patients with hypermobility syndromes and their families, as well as to all those healthcare practitioners who may encounter such syndromes in the course of their work.

An increase in aortic aneurysm occurrence is registered, despite considerable advances in surgical interventions. Consequently, numerous researchers have been trying to improve the understanding the aortic aneurysm pathogenesis in order to facilitate an early diagnosis, to identify new therapeutic targets, and to develop complex therapies. Within this book, the reader may find interesting data about etiology, risk factors, and pathogenesis of aortic aneurysm, its characteristics in young age, particularities of aneurysms affecting visceral arteries, the preoperative evaluation of the patients, different perspectives regarding the surgical therapy, including the treatment of complications after prior surgery, original proposals regarding new therapeutic modalities, and advanced imaging strategies. The multidisciplinary team of authors provides an interesting lecture and an update of the scientific literature.

Convert the latest genomic data to the most effective patient management and treatment approaches Clinical Genomics helps healthcare providers translate the vast amount of new genomic data into successful clinical application. It is a comprehensive textbook and practical guide to the use of this information across a broad spectrum of adult diseases – from individual differences in drug responses, cardiac and cancer risks to Alzheimer's and other neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Covering approximately 200 conditions, it is a true clinical text for use across all of internal medicine. Coverage of each condition is presented in a consistent, clinically relevant manner and includes: Key Points Diagnostic Criteria and Clinical Characteristics Screening and C ounseling Management and Treatment Molecular Genetics and Molecular Mechanism Supplementary Information More than ten valuable appendices, include Genetic Privacy; Race, Ancestry, and Genetics; Personalized Medicine in Clinical Practice; Clinical Interpretation of Genomic Data; and Genetic Risk Profiling in the Genomics Era.
