Advances in pancreatic cancer by Luis Rodrigo( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pancreatic cancer is a growing source of cancer-related death and has poor survival rates, which have not improved in the last few decades. Its high-mortality rate is attributed to pancreatic cancer biology, difficulty in early diagnosis, and lack of standardized international guidelines in assessing the pancreatic masses. This book aims to provide an update in the current state of play in pancreatic cancer diagnosis and to evaluate the benefits and limitations of the available diagnostic technology and therapy. The main modalities for diagnosis are imaging with HCT, MRI, USE, and PET. Some chapters review the improvements in the techniques used. Timely and accurate diagnosis of pancreatic cancer can lead to improve in the current poor outcome of this disease
Iron deficiency Anemia by Luis Rodrigo( )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2019 in Undetermined and English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iron deficiency (ID) and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) are prevalent conditions all over the world. The groups at highest risk are children, pre-menopausal women and socially disadvantaged people. Diagnose of ID using a full blood examination and iron studies can be difficulted by concomitant inflammation. Management of ID involves identification and treatment of its cause, as well as effective iron replacement. Patients who fail to respond to iron replacement will performed an endoscopy to exclude internal bleeding. Both enteral and parenteral iron are effective at replacing iron. For adult patients, we recommend trialling daily oral iron (30-100 mg of iron) as the first-line therapy. Patients who fail to respond to oral iron replacement can be safely managed with intravenous iron
Bile Duct Cancer by Luis Rodrigo( )

4 editions published in 2019 in Undetermined and English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cholangiocarcinoma is a type of malignant tumor that affects the biliary system. It can arise anywhere in the bile ducts, manifesting itself as obstructive jaundice. It has an annual incidence of 1-2 cases per 100,000 people. One variety of the disease, the Klatskin tumor, occurs in the hepatic hilum and is characterized by poor prognosis. Generally, cholangiocarcinomas are slow-growing tumors with late metastases. Localized tumors are treated surgically, but intervention is discouraged when they are extensive. The disease affects both sexes, but most cases occur in patients aged over 60 years. Primary sclerosing cholangitis, chronic biliary infection, and choledochal cysts are associated with an increased risk of cholangiocarcinoma
Celiac disease : from the bench to the clinic by Luis Rodrigo( )

4 editions published in 2019 in Undetermined and English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celiac disease (CD) occurs in about 1% of people worldwide. Diagnosis rates are increasing due to a true rise in incidence, rather than increased awareness and detection. CD affects genetically susceptible individuals who are triggered by the ingestion of gluten. The disease has many clinical manifestations, ranging from severe to minimally symptomatic or non-symptomatic presentations. Diagnosis requires the presence of duodenal chronic inflammation, and most patients have circulating antibodies against tissue transglutaminase. Our understanding of the basic and clinical aspects of CD increases, which is as a major health problem of almost global occurrence. Case finding, distinguishing CD from other gluten-sensitive conditions, better care, and balanced use of resources are the current challenges
Colorectal cancer : from pathogenesis to treatment by Luis Rodrigo( )

4 editions published in 2016 in Undetermined and English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major health problem because it represents around 10% of all cancers and achieves a worldwide estimate of 1.4 million newly diagnosed cases annually, resulting in approximately 700,000 deaths. Approximately 19-31% of patients present liver metastases. At diagnosis, a further 23-38% will develop extra-hepatic disease. Over the past decade, the widespread use of modern chemotherapeutic and biological agents, combined with laparoscopic surgical techniques, has improved the prognosis of metastatic CRC. A better understanding of the biology of the tumor, along with high efficiency of diagnostic and therapeutic methods, as well as the spread of screening programs, will improve the survival of the CRC patients in the near future
Hepatitis B and C by Luis Rodrigo( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book on Hepatitis B and C contains very useful and recent information about the general characteristics of these common types of chronic liver infections. Referred to as Hepatitis B, there are three chapters describing the main epidemiological, clinical, therapeutic, and prognosis aspects. The molecular variants for HBsAg, its genotyping, and their clinical implications are fully analyzed. The implications of coinfection Hepatitis B and C in HIV patients and their treatment are described. In relation to Hepatitis C, there are three chapters describing the general characteristics of this chronic viral infection. The challenges and strategies for access to treatment of Hepatitis C in Latin America are fully covered and these can be applied in other countries with similar epidemiological and financial problems for access to treatment on a large scale. The role of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) in the treatment of chronic Hepatitis C infection with liver cirrhosis is clearly documented
Ascites - Physiopathology, Treatment, Complications and Prognosis by Luis Rodrigo( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term ""ascites"" is from the Greek word askites meaning ""baglike."" Although most commonly due to cirrhosis, severe liver disease or metastatic cancer, its presence can be a sign of other significant medical problems, such as Budd-Chiari syndrome. Diagnosis of the cause is usually done with blood tests, an ultrasound scan of the abdomen, and direct removal of the fluid by a needle or paracentesis (which may also be therapeutic). Treatment using medications (diuretics), external drainage, or other treatments is clearly defined. In this book, the authors describe the physiopathology of the diverse causes of ascites,the types of treatments recommended, the recent advances achieved, the complications and the prognosis of the different clinical situations that doctors must face
Human Helminthiasis by Luis Rodrigo( )

3 editions published in 2017 in Undetermined and English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human helminthiasis, known as worm infections, is any macroparasitic disease affecting humans, in which a part of the body is invaded by a lot of worms, known as helminths. They are broadly classified into flukes, tapeworms, and roundworms. Soil-transmitted helminthiasis and schistosomiasis are the most important, being included into the neglected tropical diseases. Helminthiasis has been found to result in poor birth outcome, less cognitive development, lower school and work performance, lower socioeconomic development, and poverty. Soil-transmitted helminthiases are responsible for parasitic infections in as much as a quarter of the human population worldwide. This group of infective diseases has been targeted under the joint action of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies and local governments, trying to achieve their eradication
Celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity by Luis Rodrigo( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in Undetermined and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains recent advances about CD and NCGS written in eight chapters and is divided in three sections. In the first section, the main hallmarks of both diseases are described, together with the current diagnostic criteria of CD and its influence on the response to the vaccination against hepatitis B virus infection. The second section is dedicated to the description of several techniques for gluten determination in foods and if its consumption is good for nonceliac people. Finally, the third section contains complementary information related to the description and application of novel endoscopic techniques for confirming the diagnosis of CD. Another topic describes the growing consumption of gluten-free products and the adherence to this type of diet
E. coli infections : importance of early diagnosis and efficient treatment by Luis Rodrigo( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gram-negative Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria are the most numerous commensal aerobic germs located in the human colon. Diarrhea caused by E. coli pathogenic strains is a major cause of death in developing countries, especially the sub-Saharan and South Asian areas. Some strains cause diarrhea, and all of them may produce an infectious disease. This book includes ten chapters covering the main aspects of infections related to E. coli, their pathogenic mechanisms, treatments, and resistance to diverse antibiotics

Acute Pancreatitis by Luis Rodrigo( )

2 editions published in 2012 in Undetermined and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acute Pancreatitis (AP) in approximately 80% of cases, occurs as a secondary complication related to gallstone disease and alcohol misuse. However there are several other different causes that produce it such as metabolism, genetics, autoimmunity, post-ERCP, and trauma for example... This disease is commonly associated with the sudden onset of upper abdominal pain that is usually severe enough to warrant the patient seeking urgent medical attention. Overall, 10-25% of AP episodes are classified as severe. This leads to an associated mortality rate of 7-30% that has not changed in recent years. Treatment is conservative and generally performed by experienced teams often in ICUs. Although most cases of acute pancreatitis are uncomplicated and resolve spontaneously, the presence of complications has a significant prognostic importance. Necrosis, hemorrhage, and infection convey up to 25%, 50%, and 80% mortality, respectively. Other complications such as pseudocyst formation, pseudo-aneurysm formation, or venous thrombosis, increase morbidity and mortality to a lesser degree. The presence of pancreatic infection must be avoided

Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis by Luis Rodrigo( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inflammatory procceses of pancreatic gland can be acute and chronic. Acute pancreatitis constitutes the majority of cases requiring hospital admission in gastroenterology. We are yet to discover many things about its pathophysiology, which is a certain drawback for the progress in its treatment. Prediction of severity is necessary for the management plan. However, our progress in the field was significant in the recent decade and a leap forward is expected in this cumbersome condition which has many unmet needs. Chronic pancreatitis is a progressive inflammatory disease characterized by debilitating pain and pancreatic insufficiency. Although medical treatment and endoscopic interventions are primarily offered to patients with chronic pancreatitis, approximately around 50% will ultimately require palliative surgery
Liver Disease and Surgery by Georgios Tsoulfas( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this book is to present a review of the different categories of liver disease, as well as address the role of surgery in managing these complex diseases. The book includes chapters written by international experts on the most current indications and guidelines regarding the diagnoses and management of liver diseases, as well as a variety of technical elements involved with the surgical procedures. Different surgical techniques involved in performing a hepatectomy will be discussed, including various instruments used, as well as the effect of modern technology as evidenced by novel procedures. An important focus of the book has been identifying the proper place of all these hepatectomy methods in the armamentarium of the experienced hepatobiliary surgeon, including the role of locoregional treatments such as ablation and embolization as adjuncts. Finally, the role of hepatectomy compared to orthotopic liver transplantation is discussed, so that the reader can have a well-rounded picture of the challenges and opportunities involved. Overall, this book has the potential to serve as an invaluable "tool" for both the hepatologist and the internist, as well as for the hepatic surgeon
ADVANCES IN CELIAC DISEASE by Luis Rodrigo( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The incidence of gluten-related disorders (GRDs) continues to increase and its global prevalence is estimated affect to 5% of the population. s. Celiac disease (CD), Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH), Gluten Ataxia (GA), wheat allergy (WA), and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) are the five major GRDs that present with a wide range of clinical manifestations. They are manifested by symptoms of gastrointestinal tract disorders, as well as hematological, dermatological endocrinological, gynecological, rheumatological and nervous system. NCGS is a term that is used to describe individuals who are not affected by celiac disease or wheat allergy, yet they have intestinal and/or extra-intestinal symptoms related to gluten ingestion with improvement of their symptoms upon withdrawing gluten from their diet. It is believed that represents some heterogeneous groups with different subgroups characterized by different etiologies, clinical histories and clinical courses. There also appears to be an overlap between NCGS and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). There is a need for establishing strict criteria for diagnosing NCGS. The absence of validated biomarkers remains a significant limitation for research studies on NCGS. New evidence shows that a gluten-free diet may be beneficial for some patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, such as those symptoms commonly found in patients with IBS
