With advances and breakthroughs in modern medicine that are allowing people to live longer, the number of older adults will continue to grow exponentially over the next several decades. Cardiologists, geriatricians, and other clinicians caring for the elderly will require—at the very least—a basic understanding of cardiovascular disorders that commonly affect the older patient. In the fifth edition of Tresch and Aronow's Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly, each chapter has been thoroughly updated to provide a comprehensive, yet accessible overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders in older adults.

The book spans topics such as aging changes in the cardiovascular system, risk factors and epidemiology for coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies and heart failure, arrhythmias, cerebrovascular disease, and other miscellaneous subjects. The contributors supply evidence-based recommendations with strong emphasis on new research findings.

New to the Fifth Edition:

  • Numerous chapters comprehensively revised with new authors and/or co-authors
  • Summaries at the beginning of each chapter to facilitate easy reading
  • Discussion of the use of new antithrombotic agents in older adults
  • Important references in the bibliography highlighted for simplified access

With contributions from recognized experts in the field, this classic work continues to serve as the premier source on the evaluation and management of cardiovascular disorders in older adults.

Integrative Cardiology is an exploration of a new and much-needed perspective in cardiac care: the intelligent synthesis of conventional medicine with alternative approaches not typically part of Western medical curriculum. More than a blending of two approaches, this new perspective in cardiology highlights specific gaps in conventional heart care, and examines how alternative approaches may be ideally suited to address these missed opportunities.

Cardiology is an ideal specialty for an integrative approach. Heart disease is largely preventable. The influence of nutrition, physical activity, metabolic factors, and emotional state on heart health is unmistakable, and the wide-angle lens of integrative medicine is an ideal model to address these multi-faceted needs. Most importantly, the focus of this work is directed at prevention. The approaches described in this book emphasize collaboration of the patient and health care provider--both seeking to obtain the best possible outcome taking into account the intangible, but vital, nuances of the patient's culture, beliefs, and preferences.

The first section in this book describes the core elements of integrative cardiology, beginning with nutrition. Foundational chapters that follow include exercise, botanicals, aspirin, metabolic cardiology, acupuncture, spirituality, mind/body approaches, and energy medicine. Contributing authors, all of whom have a background in academic medicine, share the approaches they have found most effective in their own practices, referencing their work with the best scientific evidence available.

Transoesophageal Echocardiography (TOE) has a major impact on patient management during the perioperative period. It is an evolving tool in diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and haemodynamic assessment. The knowledge required for the examination and the practice of TOE is enormous and is continuously evolving. Consequently there is a clear need for a new comprehensive text written by experts involved in the perioperative care, not (only) by the cardiologists or full time echocardiographers.

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.
