Focusing on anatomy and procedural strategy for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, this atlas uses pictures and schematic diagrams to show how to use intracardiac echo (ICE) to assess anatomy, guide ablation, and prevent complications during interventional procedures, pulmonary vein stenosis, and embolic events. The authors review the state of the art and background support in the use of ICE in interventional electrophysiology procedures and the anatomy of both the atrial and ventricular chambers. They discuss innovative indications in the EP laboratory, future technologies such as 3-D echocardiography, and the integration of ICE with other types of imaging technology.

Patients with peripheral vascular disease (PVD) are at increased risk of death when compared with age-matched healthy controls. They are also, whether symptomatic or not, six times more likely to die within ten years when compared to patients without the disease. This excess mortality exists even if coronary artery disease is not clinically present, and makes the treatment of PVD a highly important and pressing topic. In this fully up-to-date text, Dr. Mukherjee and his excellent team of twenty-one contributors present the reader with all of the currently available clinical information for treating PVD patients effectively.

Practical Handbook of Echocardiography: 101 Case Studies

Echocardiography is now one of the most commonly used diagnostic imaging tools, yet many clinicians remain unaware of the range of conditions echo can reveal or how echo can be used to help plan therapy. Moreover, it can be quite challenging even for the most seasoned practitioners to spot unusual conditions.

Compiled by three echocardiographers with more than 100 years of clinical experience between them, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography uses a case-based approach to explain in detail the full spectrum of echocardiographic modalities and how to optimize their use in the clinical setting. This practical new book:

  • Covers the full gamut of echocardiographic modalities, including M-mode, 2-D,3-D and Doppler (PW, CW, color flow, tissue and strain), transesophageal (intra-operative and routine) and contrast
  • Describes cases in both clinical and echocardiographic terms including very interesting cases and the new clinical techniques
  • Features beautifully reproduced, well-labeled, full color echocardiograms
  • Includes accompanying DVD with real-time video clips

Appropriate for physician echocardiographers and all cardiologists, as well as echocardiographic technicians, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography is the ideal concise guide to using echocardiography to make definitive diagnoses and improve patient outcomes.

Complex Cases in Echocardiography (Hardcover)

By (author): Robert J. Siegel MD, Swaminatha V. Gurudevan MD, Takahiro Shiota MD, Kirsten Tolstrup MD, Nina Wunderlich MD, Roy Beigel MD

Complex Cases in Echocardiography is a unique text written by a team of top cardiologists at Cedars Sinai Heart Institute. Drawing from their extensive library of echocardiograms, the authors feature 75 cases demonstrating uncommon and puzzling echo findings. Each case begins with a brief clinical presentation, and related images, followed by multiple-choice questions. Detailed answers include patient outcomes and follow-up recommendations. The cases include m-mode, 2-D, 3-D echo, TEE, and Doppler ultrasound. In addition, three fold-out matching quizzes present a particular physical finding or electrocardiogram to be matched with the patient’s corresponding echocardiogram.

With the inclusion of cases seen in emergency situations as well as routine readings in an echo laboratory, this text not only introduces the reader to unusual cases, but also reinforces relevant techniques and applications..  A companion website includes the fully searchable text and features additional cases, along with actual case video clips.

 

FEATURES:

  •  Case-based format featuring 75 unusual and bizarre diagnostic dilemmas
  •  Questions and answers associated with each case
  •  3 unique fold-out quizzes
  •  A companion website with fully searchable text and 45 additional cases

This book provides an introduction to the principles of both cardiovascular epidemiology and molecular pathophysiology; as a unique aspect, it also outlines and discusses the molecular concepts underlying epidemiological observations. This second volume is focused on all aspects concerning “secondary risk factors” in terms of diseases associated with enhanced risk for cardiovascular events. The book promotes the use of interdisciplinary approaches in the field of preventive medicine based on recent advances in molecular and cellular pathophysiology. The book offers a valuable resource for researchers in basic biomedical fields and clinical scientists alike, as well as guidelines for novel avenues of research in both basic pathophysiology and cardiovascular therapy and prevention.
