Sobotta - Atlas der Anatomie des Menschen, Band 2: Innere Organe

Innere Organe

Der Sobotta in der 23. Auflage ist zielgenau auf die Bedürfnisse von Studenten der Vorklinik zugeschnitten. Er fokussiert auf den Lernstoff, der für Testate und das Physikum wichtig ist. Atlas und Webangebot konzentrieren sich von Anfang an auf prüfungsrelevantes Wissen. Das neue Lernkonzept macht Lernen - Verstehen - Trainieren entschieden einfacher: Bildbeschreibungen betonen, worauf es bei den Bildern ankommt. Zusätzlich zeigen klinische Beispiele anatomische info im Gesamtkontext. Alle Zeichnungen wurden optimiert, die Bildbeschriftungen auf das Wesentliche reduziert. Dazu ein Extraheft mit a hundred Muskeltabellen für systematisches Lernen.

12 Balanced Robertsonian translocation affecting chromosomes 13 and 14 (courtesy of Dr Lorraine Gaunt and Helena Elliott, Regional Genetic Service, St Mary’s Hospital, Manchester) 21 ABC of Clinical Genetics the balanced translocation whose offspring would be at risk. Abnormalities resulting from an unbalanced reciprocal translocation depend on the particular chromosomal fragments that are present in monosomic or trisomic form. Sometimes spontaneous abortion is inevitable; at other times a child with multiple abnormalities may be born alive.

Estimation of risk is therefore apparently simple, but in practice several factors may cause difficulties in counselling families. 1 Pedigree demonstrating autosomal dominant inheritance Parents Aa Late onset disorders Dominant disorders may have a late or variable age of onset of signs and symptoms. People who inherit the defective gene will be destined to become affected, but may remain asymptomatic well into adult life. Young adults at risk may not know whether they have inherited the disorder and be at risk of transmitting it to their children at the time they are planning their own families.

However, the age at onset, severity and age at death is more variable in intermediate SMA type II. Variation in the severity of an autosomal recessive disorder between families is generally explained by the specific mutation present in the gene. In cystic fibrosis, delta F508 is the most common mutation and most affected homozygotes have pancreatic insufficiency. Patients with other particular mutations are more likely to be pancreatic sufficient, may have less severe pulmonary disease if the regulatory function of the gene is preserved, or even present with just congenital absence of the vas deferens.
