Cardiovascular Mechanics

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Cardiovascular Mechanics
Nov 302018
 

The objective of this book is to illustrate in specific detail how cardiovascular mechanics stands as a common pillar supporting such different clinical successes as drugs for high blood pressure, prosthetic heart valves and coronary artery bypass grafting, among others. This information is conveyed through a comprehensive treatment of the overarching principles and theories that are behind mechanobiological processes, aortic and arterial mechanics, atherosclerosis, blood and microcirculation, hear valve mechanics, as well as medical devices and drugs

About the Author
Michel R. Labrosse is the founder of the Cardiovascular Mechanics Laboratory at the University of Ottawa, where he is a full professor within the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He has been an active researcher in academia along with being heavily associated with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. He has authored or co-authored over 90 refereed communications, and supervised or co-supervised over 40 graduate students and post-docs

Cardiotoxicity of Chemotherapeutic Agents

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Cardiotoxicity of Chemotherapeutic Agents
Nov 302018
 

Cardiotoxicity is a well-established complication of antineoplastic agents. Cardiomyopathy resulting from anthracyclines is a classic example. In the past decade, an explosion of novel cancer therapies, often targeted and more specific than conventional therapies, has revolutionized oncology therapy and dramatically changed cancer prognosis. However, some of these therapies have introduced an assortment of cardiovascular complications. At times, these devastating outcomes have only become apparent after drug approval and have limited the use of potent therapies. There is a growing need for better testing platforms, both for cardiovascular toxicity screening and for elucidating mechanisms of cardiotoxicity of approved cancer therapies. Our book is a comprehensive summary of information of numerous antineoplastic agents and their cardiovascular adverse effects. Cardiac oncology is an exciting and ever-changing field, and we have attempted to synthesize information from all the major and relevant studies in the field in our book. The authors hope that their book serves as a valuable reference in the field of cardiac oncology for the clinicians who are actively involved in the management of patients receiving antineoplastic agents, including primary care physicians, cardiologists, cardiology fellows in training and oncologists.

Sudden Cardiac Death: Predictors, Prevalence and Clinical Perspectives

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Sudden Cardiac Death: Predictors, Prevalence and Clinical Perspectives
Nov 302018
 

Sudden Cardiac Death: Predictors, Prevalence and Clinical Perspectives is a detailed clinical compilation on sudden cardiac death causes. From the various geographical regions of the world comes different clinical perspectives toward the SCD problem that shed light on the predictors and estimated prevalence in genetic inheritance worldwide. For many centuries, the mysterious deaths of prominent professional sportsmen have preoccupied the attention of the media and medical professionals. In some cases, it was possible to obtain the medical histories of the victims, data on the presence of some specific diseases, and conditions or potential symptoms preceding the fatal episode. Various rare inherited syndromes that are associated with congenital heart disease are focused on in this study, and the interrelationship between ventricular premature beats, sustained/non-sustained ventricular tachycardias and ventricular fibrillations are discussed. Cardio-oncology is an emerging field where more and more patients face consequences from radiotherapy and chemotherapy because these individuals become more prone to SCD. Among the most notable developments, three-dimensional echocardiography and myocardial strain imaging are worth noting and might inexpensively improve the current risk stratification process. Recently, a strain that reflects the change of length and thickness of myocardial fibres has been incorporated into the routine clinical practice. The risk of sudden cardiac death is not the same in patients with Chagas disease, and newly predicted factors are to blame. The prevalence of SCD, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and the accurate risk are extremely challenging, so much so that they recently became a source of argument between European and American experts. This is a must-have book for those interested in a clinical approach to the SCD phenomenon

Nov 102018
 

Edited by one of the world’s leading interventional cardiologists and educators, this new book is created with an eye on giving the reader a solid, practical and clinically-focused understanding of this important class of drugs, from basic science to a clear-headed discussion of complex topics such as combination therapies, drug-drug interactions, and platelet resistance.
This important new book:
• Begins with a concise but thorough discussion of platelet biology and pathophysiology so that readers understand how these therapies work and why they can also produce such a varied range of complications, from minor gastrointestinal upset, to potentially life-threatening conditions such as neutropenia, a critical shortage of white blood cells.
• Thoroughly covers platelet function testing, including new, novel techniques.
• Clarifies current best-practices regarding the use of antiplatelet agents in both chronic and acute cardiovascular disease
• Reviews of all types of antiplatelet agents – from aspirin to recently approved drugs – including indications, clinical outcomes, and side effects/complications
Written by an international who’s-who of experts in the field, Antiplatelet Therapy also includes an entire section covering the use of antiplatelet drugs in PCIs, including percutaneous valve repair, which makes this text particularly essential to Interventional Cardiologists.
