An Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography, 2 Volume Set (Hardcover)

By (author): Martin G. St. John Sutton, Alan R. Maniet, Jerry Blaivas, David A. McGowan, David Gordon, Stuart Stanton

Focusing on one of the most exciting imaging modalities available in modern clinical cardiology, Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography provides a comprehensive analysis of this modality drawn from the authors' experience. Designed to cover the breadth and depth of the topic, the book covers the evaluation of prosthesis, interventional cardiology techniques, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiology.

Each chapter begins with normal cardiac structure and function followed by abnormalities and demonstrates how to measure and interpret cardiac chamber sizes and function. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with top-quality anatomic specimens, nearly 3000 images in total, to give a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy. The clinical emphasis provides an authoritative review of the available techniques and the images that can be obtained with them.

Nothing is more perplexing to the clinician new to device therapy than having to deal with cardiac electrocardiograms from a device patient. Pacemakers and other implantable cardiac rhythm management devices leave their "imprint" on ECGs and can significantly change what clinicians see - or expect to see. Evaluating paced ECGs can be challenging, yet nowhere is it taught in any sort of comprehensive manner. Designed specifically for clinicians new to device therapy, The Nuts and Bolts of Interpreting Paced ECGs and EGMs offers practical, reliable and objective information on paced cardiac electrograms. Written in a lively, intelligent and easy to navigate style, emphasizing real-life clinical practice and practical tips, this book includes illustrated paced ECGs by skilled artists to help minimize "fuzzy" lines and emphasize key points. Each chapter concludes with a checklist of key points from each subject ("Nuts and Bolts").

Atlas of Mitral Valve Repair (Hardcover)

By (author): Edward B. Savage MD, Steven F. Bolling MD

This full-color atlas with accompanying video DVD provides a complete and practical "how-to" guide to planning and performing mitral valve repair surgery for mitral regurgitation. The book reviews the natural history of mitral regurgitation, the functional anatomy of the mitral valve, and the use of echocardiography in preoperative evaluation and surgical planning. Chapters describe and illustrate all techniques currently used for mitral valve repair and discuss results.

A bound-in DVD presents narrated video clips of six cases that show the application of specific techniques. Each case begins with preoperative echocardiograms demonstrating the mitral valve defect and proceeds through key surgical maneuvers.
