    Hipertensiunea pulmonară – subiect de carte – iată ce aduce nou acest Congres de Cardiologie.

      Hipertensiunea pulmonară a ajuns un subiect modern, mai ales acum în lumina noilor tratamente active.

      Este vorba de:

    - medicaţia ,,la zi” (prostacicline şi analogii prostaciclinelor; anatagonişti ai receptorilor endotelinei - bosentan, macitentan; inhibitori ai fosfodiesterazei – sildenafil, riociguat şi, de ce nu, blocanţii de calciu...),

    - combinaţiile medicamentoase,

    - procedurile intervenţionale şi chirurgicale (transplantul bipulmonar) care ar putea salva viaţa acestor bolnavi.

     

    Cum se prezintă în Clinică o istorie de hipertensiune pulmonară?

      Este ceva ce o diferenţiază concret de alte cazuri?

      Da, sunt lucruri care îi dau un aer personal, o fac să fie asemenea prezenţei materne – când o vezi să-i spui cu certitudine, cu toată încrederea ,,ea este a mea mămică” ca şi Nichita Stănescu…

     

    ,,Mânjii toţi au zis de iepe,

                   Firul cepii a zis de cepe,

                   Nucii toţi au zis de nucă,

                      Cucii toţi au zis de cucă,

                   Toţi pisoii de pisică,

                   Iară eu, de-a mea mămică! ”

     

    Cine a contribuit la ,,rezolvarea” acestor cazuri?

    O seamă de doctori din toată ţara; i-am adunat (fiindu-mi mai aproape) pe cei din Bucureşti:

    - profesorul Miron Bogdan, preşedintele programului de Hipertensiune Pulmonară al Ministerului Sănătăţii,

    - profesorul I. M. Coman, coordonator al programului HTP în ,,IUBCV C.C. Iliescu” şi preşedintele Fundaţiei adulţilor cu boli cardiace congenitale

    - doamna doctor Ioana Ghiorghiu care a fost responsabilă de acest program în Clinica de Cardiologie III, ca să-l predea apoi

    - doamnei doctor Roxana Enache – care cu perseverenţă şi îndrăzneală a adunat în jurul său doctorii interesaţi de această patologie.

     

    Există istorii clinice surprinzătoare?

    Da, o mulţime: cazuri familiale; hipertensiunea portopulmonară; ventricul stâng unic necorectat; dextrocardie, sindrom Eisenmenger, prolaps de valvă mitrală şi tricuspidă; histiocitoză cu celule Langerhans; obezitate şi sindrom de apnee în somn; hipertensiuni tromboembolice operabile sau nu; scleroză sistemică; hipertensiune pulmonară multifactorială (are chirurgul vreun rol?); diagnostic de hipertensiune pulmonară aparent ferm, dar infirmat...

     

    În plus – cartea are ataşat un CD care conţine întrebările şi răspunsurile ,,cheie” şi unele imagini interpretabile doar în mişcare.

     

    Merită să cumpăraţi această carte?

    Sigur! Veţi găsi lucruri cu adevărat noi despre cauzele şi modul de rezolvare – cel puţin parţial – al hipertensiunii pulmonare...

    The goal of this book is to further insight into the challenges related to respiratory health. Medical experts present their lines of scientific investigations on how to contain the disease, care for patients, and use preventive measures, with a focus on pulmonary-related disorders. Progress in the diagnostics and treatment of major infectious diseases affecting humanity such as tuberculosis, malaria, fungal and viral contagions is tackled. Other chapters provide some background information on the mechanisms and prevention of non-communicable diseases. New aspects of the etiology of sarcoidosis, air pollution-related lung cancer, and sleep disordered breathing are presented. Preventive measures of health in general and respiratory health in particular cannot do without a reminder of cigarette smoke avoidance and the respiratory aftermath of the smoking habit. The book presents scientific evidence-based practice knowledge. It is intended for healthcare professionals, specifically pulmonary specialists, primary care physicians, and all scientifically-minded individuals involved in the care of patients.

    This book concisely reviews important advances in radiation oncology, providing practicing radiation oncologists with a fundamental understanding of each topic and an appreciation of its significance for the future of radiation oncology. It explores in detail the impact of newer imaging modalities, such as multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) using fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and other novel agents, which deliver improved visualization of the physiologic and phenotypic features of a given cancer, helping oncologists to provide more targeted radiotherapy and assess the response. Due consideration is also given to how advanced technologies for radiation therapy delivery have created new treatment options for patients with localized and metastatic disease, highlighting the increasingly important role of image-guided radiotherapy in treating systemic and oligometastatic disease. Further topics include the potential value of radiotherapy in enhancing immunotherapy thanks to the broader immune-stimulatory effects,  how cancer stem cells and the tumor microenvironment influence response, and the application of mathematical and systems biology methods to radiotherapy.
