The Matter of the Heart: A History of the Heart in Eleven Operations


By (author): Thomas Morris

An eye-opening and heroic story of pioneering heart surgeons, structured around eleven operations.

For thousands of years the human heart remained the deepest of mysteries; both home to the soul and an organ too complex to touch, let alone operate on.

Then, in the late nineteenth century, medics began going where no one had dared go before. The following decades saw the mysteries of the heart exposed, thanks to pioneering surgeons, brave patients and even sacrificial dogs.

In eleven landmark operations, Thomas Morris tells us stories of triumph, reckless bravery, swaggering arrogance, jealousy and rivalry, and incredible ingenuity: the trail-blazing ‘blue baby’ procedure that transformed wheezing infants into pink, healthy children; the first human heart transplant, which made headline news around the globe. And yet the heart still feels sacred: just before the operation to fit one of the first artificial hearts, the patient’s wife asked the surgeon if he would still be able to love her.

The Matter of the Heart gives us a view over the surgeon’s shoulder, showing us the heart’s inner workings and failings. It describes both a human story and a history of risk-taking that has ultimately saved millions of lives.

The Heart Revolution: The Extraordinary Discovery That Finally Laid the Cholesterol Myth to Rest


Features: The Heart Revolution The Extraordinary Discovery That Finally Laid the Cholesterol Myth to Rest
By (author): Kilmer McCully, Martha McCully

A safe, effective, and revolutionary program for lowering homocysteine levels and cutting your risk of heart disease

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kilmer S. McCully explains what is really behind the epidemic of heart disease. For many years, clogged arteries have been inaccurately viewed as the cause, rather than a symptom, of heart disease. Now, McCully shows you how to cut your risk of heart disease by controlling the real culprit, homocysteine. Considered one of the most significant medical breakthroughs in recent years, McCully’s findings have been validated by numerous large-scale studies. The Heart Revolution:

  • Challenges the long-held assumption that lowering cholesterol is the key to preventing heart disease

  • Explains how eating vitamin B-rich food can control homocysteine levels

  • Lays out a plan with menus for putting more B vitamins in our diet

  • Discusses how food processing and additives compromise our health

  • Explains how costly cholesterol-lowering medicines can actually harm our health

Eat Your Way to a Healthy Heart

Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onions, Veal with Wine and Mushrooms, Guacamole, Omelettes. This is not your typical diet program. Dr. McCully offers real food choices with fresh ingredients available just about everywhere. The focus is on delicious foods that will leave you satisfied. The purpose is to make sure you’re getting enough of the vitamins needed to prevent heart disease—B6, B12, and folic acid, as well as essential, phytochemicals, fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential oils. It’s easy to follow this plan as it relies on foods you want to eat with little preparation time and tons of variety.

Signaling in the Heart


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): José Marín-García

Signal transduction pathways are at the core of most biological processes and are critical regulators of heart physiology and pathophysiology.  The heart is both a transmitter and dynamic receptor of a variety of intracellular and extracellular stimuli, playing a critical role of an integrator of diverse signaling mechanisms. Alterations in signaling pathways are contributing factors in the development and progression of a broad spectrum of diseases, ranging from dysrhythmias and atherosclerosis to hypertension and the metabolic syndrome.  Targeting specific components of these signaling pathways has been shown to be effective in preclinical studies with significant therapeutic impact.

This book brings together current knowledge in cardiovascular cell signal transduction mechanisms, advances in novel therapeutic approaches to improve cardiac function, and discussion of future directions.  Presented from a post-genomic perspective, this exciting book introduces important new ideas in cardiovascular systems biology.  It is an invaluable reference for cardiology researchers and practitioners.

Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Disease I: Complex Transposition of Great Arteries Right and Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction Ebstein´s Anomaly A Video Manual


Features: Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Disease I Complex Transposition of Great Arteries Right and Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction Ebstein s Anomaly A Video Manual
By (author): Viktor Hraska, Peter Murin

Approximately 120 different surgical procedures are used to correct congenital heart diseases, and the burden that this places on the surgeon is compounded by the exceptional complexity of the techniques and the rarity of many of the lesions. Training is problematic, not least because of legal issues, and currently available texts, drawings, and images are no substitute for real ‘live’ surgery.

Against this background, the authors have set out to create an interactive multimedia manual that covers many aspects of congenital heart surgery. Each heart defect is addressed in an individual chapter, elaborating specific surgical anatomy and indication for surgery of heart defect first, followed by video clips depicting the operative approach and technique. The clips are accompanied by a clear descriptive narrative, and patient history and diagnostic images are available to provide a clear backdrop to the operation. The chosen format makes this manual not only a very powerful teaching tool for practicing cardiac surgeons and surgeons in training but also a valuable source of information for related services such as pediatric and adult cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologist, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists and medical students.

Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Disease (Hodder Arnold Publication)


By (author): Richard Jonas

The management of congenital heart disease has changed dramatically over the last 15 years and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. More than ever before contemporary practice requires a collaborative effort by a large healthcare team comprised not only of congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians. All of these individuals need to have a clear understanding of the morphology and pathophysiology of congenital heart disease as well as the surgical manipulations that take place in the operating room.

This textbook describes in detail the current practice in congenital heart surgery of Richard A Jonas and the team from Harvard Medical School in Boston with whom he worked closely for many years. The book includes numerous beautiful illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. However, this is much more than an operative atlas that illustrates how an operation should be done; it also incorporates an evidence-based approach, supported throughout by numerous scientific citations, to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits and potential complications.
