New Science Direct E-Books - March 2017

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Dentistry, 3rd ed. / S. J. Stefanac and S. P. Nesbit
Elsevier, 2017

"The third edition of this text is a significant expansion from the prior two editions. Now titled Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Dentistry, we have added two new chapters Common Diagnoses in Dentistry and Interprofessional Treatment Planning. The first pertains to diagnosis, the bedrock from which all treatment decisions are made. The focus of this chapter is the range of patient diagnoses commonly encountered in dental practice. Second, because dentists are partners with other health professionals, we anticipate that dental treatment will increasingly be delivered in a collaborative, interdisciplinary setting where patients and providers will both benefit from a team approach to oral and general healthcare delivery. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with the fundamental knowledge needed to create treatment plans for adolescent and adult patients. To assist practitioners at all levels of experience, we present strategies for bridging the gap between the real or perceived divide between “ideal” and “practical” dental treatment planning. We continue to emphasize the central role of the patient, whose needs and informed choices should drive the treatment planning process." From book preface

Nutritional Pathophysiology of Obesity and its Comorbidities: A Case-Study Approach / By S. Ettinger
Elsevier Inc., 2017

Nutritional Pathophysiology of Obesity and Its Comorbidities: A Case-Study Approach challenges students and practitioners to understand the role of nutrients within the pathophysiology and development of disease, specifically those diseases which develop as a result of obesity. Through a case-based approach, the author presents complex clinical scenarios that require multiple treatment strategies, including targeted diet modification as an adjuvant to medical therapy.

The book is divided into 9 modules and 5 appendices each of which covers aspects of obesity and its comorbidities. Within each module, a case is detailed with relevant history, laboratory and physical data, and follow-up information. Each case is followed by a resource section which delineates current understanding of the pathophysiology of the condition, as well as the actions of nutrients and food components shown to modify these processes. A "further readings" section cites current supporting clinical and basic literature as well as published guidelines.

  • Explores how obesity is a key player in the pathophysiology of many diseases, including diabetes mellitus, chronic renal failure, hypertension, and atherosclerosis 
  • Integrates current understandings of the molecular mechanisms of nutrient action on the processes of disease development and treatment Presents students and early practitioners with complex clinical scenarios through a practical case-based approach
