Kernicterus (bilirubin encephalopathy) is a highly interesting example of metabolic encephalopathy. It fills all the characteristics of a metabolic encephalopathy in that it can develop rapidly, produces signature signs and symptoms, and is amenable to successful treatment. In the absence of treatment kernicterus can produce devastating sequelae and death. The present volume will examine the biochemistry and physiology of bilirubin as well as its hepatic metabolism and renal excretion. Chapters will elaborate bodily disposition of bilirubin and its neuropathology. Both early treatments and…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Kernicterus (bilirubin encephalopathy) is a highly interesting example of metabolic encephalopathy. It fills all the characteristics of a metabolic encephalopathy in that it can develop rapidly, produces signature signs and symptoms, and is amenable to successful treatment. In the absence of treatment kernicterus can produce devastating sequelae and death. The present volume will examine the biochemistry and physiology of bilirubin as well as its hepatic metabolism and renal excretion. Chapters will elaborate bodily disposition of bilirubin and its neuropathology. Both early treatments and current therapy will be discussed in detail. Phototherapy will be presented, and its efficacy and influence on incidence thoroughly examined.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"Hyperbilirubinemia and the prevention of development of neurological pathology and/ or death due to kernicterus in newborns is a significant concern for physicians and allied healthcare workers worldwide. ... Kernicterus is a worthy addition to the clinical neuroscience literature as a treatise on a condition that preferentially attacks critical brain regions. ... it should be read widely by clinicians and public health officers confronted by issues related to the early diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of individuals suffering from kernicterus." (Medical Science Books, May, 2011)
