Antimicrobial drug resistance is a global health problem that continues to expand as micro-organisms adapt to the antibiotics we use to treat them and as new classes of antimicrobial agents have been harder to discover and advance into the clinic. The second edition of Antimicrobial Drug Resistance grew out of a desire by the editors and authors to provide an
updated, comprehensive resource of information on antimicrobial drug resistance that would
encompass the current information available for bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses. The two volumes have been extensively revised with many new authors and chapters as the field of drug resistance has evolved. We believe that this information will be of value to clinicians, epidemiologists, microbiologists, virologists, parasitologists, public health authorities, medical students, and fellows in training.
We are very pleased to present the third edition of Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery. With each successive edition, we have asked our authors to help us maintain a textbook that is comprehensive and easy to read and covers most aspects of clinical practice in reproductive medicine. Our target audience remains fellows, residents, and those who have recently begun independent practice for the irst time. We have strived to keep the textbook manageable in terms of both cost and length. For our third edition, we have made a few notable changes in an attempt to further improve upon the original textbook. In addition to asking the authors to update their chapters, we have asked them to start each chapter with a brief case presentation and a set of key words and phrases.
On October 17, 2016, The International Workshop on Clinical Image-Based Procedures: From Planning to Intervention (CLIP 2016) was held in Athens, Greece, in conjunction with the 19th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention (MICCAI). Following the tradition set in the last four years, this year’s edition of the workshop was as productive and exciting a forum for the discussion and dissemination of clinically tested, state-of-the-art methods for image-based planning, monitoring, and evaluation of medical procedures as in yesteryears. Over the past few years, there has been considerable and growing interest in the development and evaluation of new translational image-based techniques in the modern hospital. For a decade or more, a proliferation of meetings dedicated to medical image computing has created the need for greater study and scrutiny of the clinical application and validation of such methods.
Medicine, health care and the wider social meaning and management of health are undergoing major changes. In part, this reflects developments in science and technology, which enable new forms of diagnosis, treatment and the delivery of health care. It also reflects changes in the locus of care and burden of responsibility for health. Today, genetics, informatics, imaging and integrative technologies, such as nanotechnology, are redefining our understanding of the body, health and disease; at the same time, health is no longer simply the domain of conventional medicine, nor the clinic. The ‘birth of the clinic’ heralded the process through which health and illness became increasingly subject to the surveillance of medicine.
Cerebrovascular diseases (including symptomatic strokes and vascular cognitive impairment) are arguably the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. About one in three symptomatic strokes are caused by diseases of small perforating arteries,
including most cases of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage, the most severe and lethal type of stroke. Despite the clear importance of small vessel diseases, many effective interventions (for example endovascular techniques) currently target only disease of large arteries, because small vessels are technically inaccessible and the underlying mechanisms of small vessel diseases remain relatively poorly understood.
he irst edition of this book appeared in 2010, at a time when there was very little published evidence on vulval disease. Happily, the situation has improved, and the entire text has been amended to relect this. Further reading lists are included at the end of the chapters. In the last 5 years, the authors themselves have completed important research on genital candidiasis, lichen planus, lichen sclerosus and persistent vaginitis. hey have included a pr´ecis of this information, as well as relevant research from other centres.
The best of function and structure to provide accurate localisation, characterisation and diagnosis. There are extensive literature and evidence to support, which have made significant impact in oncological imaging and management of patients with cancer. The evidence in favour of especially in orthopaedic indications is evolving and increasing. The Clinicians’ Guide to Radionuclide pocketbook series is specifically aimed at our referring clinicians, nuclear medicine/radiology doctors, radiographers/technologists and nurses who are routinely working in nuclear medicine and participate in multidisciplinary meetings. This series is the joint work of many friends and professionals from different nations who share a common dream and vision towards promoting and supporting nuclear medicine as a useful and important imaging speciality.

This book is intended to be a clear and concise reference for physicians and allied health professionals. Its user-friendly format was designed to provide a fast and efficient way to identify important clinical information and to offer practical guidance in patient management. The book is divided into five sections and an appendix, each with emphasis on clinical information.
The tremendous success of the previous editions and the enthusiastic comments from numerous colleagues have brought about several positive changes. Each section has been significantly expanded from prior editions, bringing the total number of medical topics covered in this book to more than 1000. Nearly 500 new illustrations and tables have been added to the edition to enhance recollection of clinically important facts.
As medicine becomes more and more specialized, and moves further and further from the general physician, becoming increasingly subspecialized, it can be difficult to know where we fi t in to the general scheme of things. What ties a public health physician to a neurosurgeon? Why does a dermatologist require the same early training as a gastroenterologist? What makes an academic nephrologist similar to a general practitioner? To answer these questions we need to go back to the definition of a physician. The word physician comes from the Greek physica, or natural science, and the Latin physicus, or one who undertakes the study of nature. A physician therefore is one who has studied nature and natural sciences, although the word has been adapted to mean one who has studied healing and medicine.

La tercera edición de esta obra sigue con la misma filosofía de las ediciones anteriores; es decir, no pretende ser un exhaustivo tratado sobre las enfermedades de la piel, sino una obra concebida especialmente para los estudiantes de Medicina, con el objeto de que más que un libro de consulta se trate de un libro de texto para estudiar la asignatura de Dermatología. Así mismo, es también una obra de consulta para médicos de AP y profesionales en formación. La nueva edición, que mantiene la misma estructura que la anterior, cuenta con 33 capítulos y el mismo conjunto de colaboradores, llevándose a cabo una actualización de los capítulos de acuerdo a las novedades
terapéuticas y aquellas aportadas por la investigación básica aplicada, así como nuevos aspectos patogénicos.
La Medicina Ambulatoria es una modalidad de ejercicio de la Clínica Médica que ha existido siempre, pero que en las últimas dos décadas ha tenido un crecimiento considerable. Las razones para este fenómeno son, seguramente, el surgimiento de nuevas técnicas de laboratorio, el perfeccionamiento de otras y la disponibilidad de métodos de imágenes de gran utilidad diagnóstica.
No es menos cierto que tales avances no están al alcance de todos los médicos ya que muchos ejercen su práctica alejados de los grandes centros urbanos y de los hospitales universitarios.
