Dr. Anastassakis presents Androgenetic Alopecia From A to Z​ - Volume 1

This book is designed as a complete reference tool for the understanding and management of Androgenetic Alopecia and Female Pattern Hair Loss (AGA/FPHL). They are probably the most common adult (18-50yo) health disorders besides dental caries, accounting for >98% of hair loss cases in males and >70% cases in females. Every aspect of the condition is considered, including biology, diagnosis, etiology, drug treatment, the influence of nutrition, lifestyle and food supplements, related disorders, surgical hair restoration, hair care, and future treatment options. The present volume, the first of three related volumes, is structured in 4 sections: 22 dedicated chapters, ranging from basic science (Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, Embryology), the etiology of adult, childhood & adolescent AGA/FPHL, diagnostic steps and evaluation, to related disorders and comorbidities.

For the first time in the scientific literature, all pathogenetic contributors of AGA/FPHL, including microinflammation, scalp vascularization, biochemical stress, aging, solar radiation, and the sebaceous gland, are examined in comprehensive, dedicated chapters. The effects of every hormone on AGA/FPHL, as well as the psychological impact of the condition, are explored in depth.

An extensive chapter on childhood & adolescent AGA/FPHL, a more common than previously thought condition, is another unique feature. Finally, two exceptionally detailed sections are included on the pathogenetic links of AGA/FPHL to life-threatening comorbidities: cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, insulin resistance, and prostatic disorders, with suggested guidelines on how to save lives of balding patients by adopting early screening strategies.

In providing a fully up-to-date, complete guide to this popular subject that draws together current knowledge, this richly illustrated volume (>200 figures, tables, and algorithms), offers the latest, evidence-based information on every aspect of AGA/FPHL causing hair loss to countless individuals worldwide. Each subject is addressed according to learning and clinical needs, and the presented information is sourced from thousands of peer-reviewed papers.
