Neuroendocrinology of Leptin (Frontiers of Hormone Research, Vol. 26) 1st Edition

The discovery of the adipostatic hormone leptin has transformed our understanding of the neurobiology of appetite control and has helped to establish the biological basis of obesity. In recent years there has been a wealth of publications relating to the physiology of this peptide. This volume sets out to draw together key features of the central effects of leptin. Contributions from leading authorities in the field include reviews of leptin’s actions on hypothalamic peptides, the role of leptin in fasting, its effects on reproductive function, and evidence supporting endogenous brain production of the peptide. Endocrinologists, diabetologists, obesity specialists and Neurobiologists will be interested in this succint and timely review of the effects of the adipostatic hormone leptin on neuroendocrine function.

Atlas of Head and Neck Endocrine Disorders: Special Focus on Imaging and Imaging-Guided Procedures 1st ed

From the Back Cover

Advanced Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound 1st ed

This text provides a comprehensive review of ultrasound in thyroid and parathyroid diseases. These topics are presented from a vantage point of complex decision-making encountered in real clinical scenarios. The sections are organized according to a logical structure covering benign and malignant thyroid conditions, parathyroid disease, and ultrasound technology, ultrasound-guided interventions, and innovations. The style of the chapters provide practical, actionable information that is richly illustrated with figures and links to video cine-clips. The chapter topics aim to show how different specialists uniquely apply ultrasound in given clinical scenarios. The text illustrates the optimal incorporation of current practice guidelines, as this remains varied and inconsistent among clinicians.

Gland-Preserving Salivary Surgery: A Problem-Based Approach 1st ed. 2018 Edition

Salivary Endoscopy is a rapidly emerging field that has revolutionized the management of non-neoplastic diseases of the salivary gland, such as salivary stones, sialadenitis, and salivary duct stenosis. With the emergence of endoscopic access to the salivary ductal system, several procedural and technical innovations have emerged that have now permitted gland preservation surgery for these pathologies. As more centers and physicians are adopting this rapidly emerging and evolving procedure, there is a need for source of literature that provides current concepts and detailed technical descriptions of the procedures that involve gland preservation surgery.  This text intends to capture the current concepts among experts and in literature regarding the management of non-neoplastic salivary gland diseases. The book also focuses on steps of surgical management and technical pearls while providing detailed information on the decision-making process when emcompassing the diversity of clinical presentation, intra-operative decision-making and post op care. Gland Preservation Surgery provides high quality illustrations, clinical and operative images, and videos that serve as an online resource to salivary gland surgeons and endoscopists with varying experience and expertise. ​
