The Pathology of Cardiac Transplantation: A clinical and pathological perspective

 Cardiovascular, Pathology  Comments Off on The Pathology of Cardiac Transplantation: A clinical and pathological perspective
Oct 172018
 

This is the first book to focus entirely on the role of pathology in cardiac transplantation, linked to the clinical perspective through clinical–pathological correlation, multidisciplinary team working, and collaborative research. It provides a scientific framework with up-to-date pathological protocols and classification schemes and guides the reader through the chronological phases of the transplant process in a step-by-step approach. Topics include end-stage heart failure with pathologies encountered in the native heart, current issues surrounding donor selection, the multiple faces of rejection pathology correlated with clinical management and immunology, other post-transplant complications, details of pediatric and combined heart/other organ transplantation, and a useful practical appendix. Many high-quality images and illustrative cases are presented, along with learning points and ample references.

Transplantation medicine today is continuously changing as collaborative research into novel diagnostic techniques and immunosuppressive therapies translates into improved recipient management and survival. This book is aimed at practicing transplant pathologists and specialist trainees. It will also appeal to general pathologists and to physicians and surgeons involved in cardiac transplantation who need to understand the role of pathology in the clinical management of transplant recipients.

Organ donation and transplantation after cardiac death

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Organ donation and transplantation after cardiac death
Oct 132018
 

With the success of organ transplantation and the declining number of heart beating cadaver doctors, the number of patients awaiting a transplant continues to rise. This means that alternative sources of donors have been sought, including donors after cardiac death. Such donors sustain rapid damage to their organs due to ischaemia, and as a consequence, some organs do not work initially and some none at all. The proportion of such transplants has increased dramatically in recent years–25% of kidney transplants in the UK were from such donors in 2006, highlighting how much progress has been made. Written by international experts, this book lays out the moral, legal, and ethical restraints to using such donors for organ transplant together with the techniques that have been adpoted to improve their outcome. The different approaches and results of renal transplant according to country are covered together with the procedures and outcomes adopted to use other organs, notably the liver and lungs.

Houston Hearts

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Houston Hearts
Oct 072018
 

Here is the heretofore-untold story about how “Houston” became known as the “heart capital of the world.” As told by many of those who participated in the transformation, this history is an insider’s view of the past seven decades of cardiovascular surgery and medicine at Houston Methodist Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine.
With the 1944 arrival of cardiologist Dr. Don W. Chapman and 1948 arrival of cardiac surgeon Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, a highly respected and innovative cardiovascular care program with worldwide repercussions began at Houston Methodist. When cardiologist Dr. William L. Winters Jr. moved to Houston in 1968 to join Dr. Chapman in private practice, he became not only an eye witness to this ongoing phenomenon but also an integral component of its meteoric trajectory during the following four decades, the highlights of which he has recorded in Houston Hearts.

A Perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on A Perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome
Sep 262018
 

This book presents a valuable new perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome (PCAS), which was defined as system failure following whole-body ischemia-reperfusion injuries by the 2008 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation. Recently, improving the survival rate of PCAS has become a major priority all over the world.
A Perspective on Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome addresses various aspects, including: neurological outcomes in non-convulsive status epilepticus, target temperature management, interventions for PCAS after acute coronary syndrome, the significance of measuring lactate clearance, a specific scoring system in prognostication for PCAS, therapeutic indications for suicide hanging cases.

This book will help a broad readership, including emergency physicians, intensivists, cardiologists and neurologists treating PCAS patients, to understand the history, current issues and future challenges in PCAS, presented by respected experts in this field.
