Progress in Heritable Soft Connective Tissue Diseases (2021)

English | 2021 | ISBN: 3030806138 | 843 Pages | PDF EPUB | 27 MB

This volume represents a substantially revised and updated 2nd edition of a reference handbook on major structural components of soft connective tissues and a whole slew of heritable diseases of soft connective tissues. The number of clearly identifiable and distinct disorders has grown somewhat since the 1st edition in 2014, e.g., Ehlers-Danlos syndrome has now 13 entities. A brand new syndrome, Meester Loeys syndrome carrying the name of Bart Loeys was added as a companion to Loeys-Dietz syndrome. Numerous variations of cutis laxa and joint mobility disorders have been discovered taking advantage of recent advancements in genetic analysis. We have acquired better understanding of pathogenesis and biochemical changes in some other, more established entities, such as Marfan and collagen VI myopathies where better management and possible treatment are on the horizon. Even in the case of connective tissue diseases in domestic animals some progress has been made. All these updates were contributed by a group of distinguished and preeminent physicians and scientists, all of them not just working in the field but making new discoveries described by them.
