The ESC Textbook of Preventive Cardiology: Clinical practice (The European Society of Cardiology Textbooks)


Covering both principles and practice, The ESC Textbook of Preventive Cardiology is a ‘state of the art’ resource for both the primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Comprehensive, practical and extensively linked to practice guidelines and recommendations from the European Association of Cardiac Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR), it clearly connects the latest evidence base to strategies and proposals for the implementation of prevention in clinical practice.

With a strong clinical focus the topics covered range from epidemiology and risk stratification through psychological factors, behaviour and motivation to secondary prevention, integrating hospital-based and community care for cardiovascular disease prevention and information on cardio-protective drugs. Case studies, clinical decision-making trees and drug tables with recommended doses and potential side-effects make it easier than ever to implement treatments in practice.

Drawing together current knowledge and evidence, and examining all aspects of preventive cardiology in one succinct volume, The ESC Textbook of Preventive Cardiology is the ideal guide for the physician and allied health professional working to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease in their daily practice.

Clinical Handbook of Cardiac Electrophysiology


This book provides a detailed summary of all aspects of cardiac electrophysiology, presented in an easy to use handbook. For each arrhythmia the aetiology, classification, clinical presentation, mechanism, and electrophysiology is set up (including precise set up and ablation parameters) and trouble-shooting are presented and demonstrated using interesting images, fluoroscopy images, ECG’s and electrograms.

The overall aim of this book is to provide a logical and practical approach to cardiac arrhythmia management. It acts as a useful resource and, importantly, helps to promote this sub-specialty.

This book is aimed at cardiac electrophysiologist’s, fellows, cardiologists, physicians, family practitioners, cardiology trainees, students, allied professionals and nurses. Given its succinct summary of electrophysiology is a useful reference guide for the electrophysiology laboratory. It is aimed at an international audience and provides an important guide for those studying for all heart rhythm exams.?

Real-Time 3D Interventional Echocardiography


By (author): Francesco Fulvio Faletra, Gila Perk, Natesa G. Pandian, Hans-Joachim Nesser, Itzhak Kronzon

?Advances in technology and human skill have made possible percutaneous catheter-based procedures for a wide spectrum of structural heart disease. A growing number of structural heart diseases that over the past two decades would have required open heart surgery can be safely treated using percutaneous catheter-based procedures.Traditionally, guidance of catheter-based procedures is done using fluoroscopy and two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D TEE). The recent introduction in the clinical practice of RT 3D TEE has overcome most of limitations of 2D TEE. The purpose of this book is to describe the use of this imaging modality in percutaneous interventional procedures underlying its growing role and acceptance among the interventional cardiologists but also emphasizing areas of weakness. Because today interventional cardiology ranges from closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects, to repair of mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis, from the closure of left atrial appendage and prosthesis dehiscence, to the recent use in electrophysiological procedure, this book targets not only specialists in echocardiography and interventional cardiology but also general cardiologists. General cardiologists will find in any chapter anatomy of the structure treated (i.e. atrial septum, mitral valve…), a description of the morphopathology as seen with RT 3D TEE (degenerative or ischemic mitral regurgitation) the up-to-date indications to the specific percutaneous treatment and typical and unusual clinical cases.?
