A Second Edition of this handbook of drugs used in pediatric cardiac care will satisfy the need for a quick up-to-date reference source of common drug therapy. There are no major texts available in the field of pediatric cardiology that exclusively provide therapeutic drug information. Several sources are available that present drug information for cardiology, but these place no emphasis on pediatric care and are written for general cardiac specialists.

Echocardiography is one of the most useful and powerful diagnostic tools in the assessment of cardiac function. It remains a rapidly expanding modality, with new techniques constantly developing and maturing. Building on the success of the original work, the second edition of Making Sense of Echocardiography: A Hands-on Guide provides a timely, accessible overview for those learning echocardiography for the first time as well as an accessible handbook that experienced sonographers can refer to throughout their careers.

The strong clinical focus and concentration on real-life scenarios make this book especially relevant in day-to-day practice. New chapters in this edition discuss myocardial mechanics and speckle tracking and 3D echo. The book also contains significantly expanded and updated material on:

  • Contrast echocardiography
  • Tissue Doppler imaging
  • Intravascular ultrasound and epicardial echocardiography
  • The left ventricle and its systolic function
  • Left ventricular diastolic function
  • The left atrium

Supplying the latest guidelines and evidence-based clinical advice, this edition is also supplemented with new illustrations and an updated website. Fully updated key references for further reading are provided for each chapter. This accessible yet comprehensive text will ensure readers are up to date on the essentials in the field and can confidently integrate new procedures into their everyday practice.

During the past few years, cardiac CT (CCT) has acquired an increasingly important role as a noninvasive imaging method that allows assessment of coronary heart disease from both the morphological and the functional standpoint. It is quickly becoming a primary clinical tool for the evaluation and follow-up of various conditions related to the heart and great vessels and is providing valuable insights into the natural history of atherosclerosis.

The rapid advances in CCT technology, the advent of new clinical applications, and the acquisition of data on prognostic value are just some of the reasons for the publication of this new edition of Clinical Applications of Cardiac CT, little more than 3 years after the first edition appeared. The text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice, and the structure and layout of the educational content have also been improved. The imaging targets, semeiology, technique, and clinical applications of CCT are all covered in detail, and in addition relevant information is provided on epidemiology, clinical assessment, and the role of other diagnostic modalities. This book will prove an invaluable tool for radiologists and cardiologists alike.

Recently, several studies have shown the crucial role of viscoelastic properties of the aorta and large arteries in determining blood pressure values. A good knowledge of cardiovascular pathophysiology and vascular hemodynamics is necessary to understand these phenomena. However, available texts on this topic are very complex and difficult for medical practitioners to understand. The aim of this book is to enable the reader to comprehend the relation between cardiovascular pathophysiology and vascular hemodynamics and to become familiar with the more recent guidelines. While very complex physical concepts are involved, care has been taken to ensure that the explanations are as straightforward as possible. Complex analyses are presented separately and can be skipped by the reader without impairment of understanding. It is envisaged that the knowledge imparted will prove invaluable in improving the approach to hypertensive patients.

Tetralogy of Fallot is the most common form of cyanotic congenital heart disease, and one of the first to be successfully repaired by congenital heart surgeons. Although “fixed”, patients born with tetralogy of Fallot cannot be considered “cured”. Improving survival and quality of life for this ever-increasing adult population will continue to challenge the current and future generations of cardiologists.

Adult patients with tetralogy of Fallot should be seen by a cardiologist specializing in the care of adults with congenital heart disease, to be monitored for late complications. They need to be checked regularly for any subsequent complications or disturbances of heart rhythm.

This monograph is intended as both an introduction to the subject and a timely, comprehensive review, and will be welcomed by adult cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, internists, surgeons, obstetricians, and intensivists who wish to learn about the most recent discoveries and advances concerning tetralogy of Fallot in adults. It will also be of interest to advanced undergraduates wanting to learn more about the subject.

The book provides a clear overview of the various research stages of cardiac surgery, interventional cardiology, and cardiac anesthesia. It also deals with recent advances in minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and many other innovations introduced in this field. However, aim of this volume is not only to describe the evolution of the discipline, but also to give the occasion of revisiting old and forgotten ideas that could be used successfully also nowadays if supported by modern technologies. With contributions by renowned international experts, the volume will be a very useful tool for students, residents, cardiac surgery and anesthesia professionals, cardiologists, biomedical engineers, and researchers.

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.
