Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment
Feb 022018
 

Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are grossly insufficient and fail to identify the majority of victims prior to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment, Dr. Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis. The text focuses on accurate, yet underutilized, measures of subclinical atherosclerosis, notably coronary artery calcium scanning and carotid intima-media thickness measurement. The authors introduce a comprehensive approach to identifying the vulnerable patients (asymptomatic individuals at risk of a near future adverse event). Additional chapters discuss future directions towards containing the epidemic of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease using innovative solutions such as preemptive interventional therapies (bioabsorbable stents) for stabilization of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques, mass unconditional Polypill therapy for population-based risk reduction, and ultimately vaccination strategies to prevent the development of atherosclerosis. Up-to-date and authoritative, Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment is a must-have for any cardiologist or primary care physician who wishes to practice modern preventive cardiology and manage the increasing number of asymptomatic atherosclerotic patients. Outlines more accurate measures of risk (coronary artery calcium and carotid intima-media thickness) than traditional risk factors (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol) Presents new multipronged strategies to aid in the early detection and treatment of high risk asymptomatic patients

Acute Heart Failure

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Acute Heart Failure
Jan 302018
 

 

For many years, there has been a great deal of work done on chronic congestive heart failure while acute heart failure has been considered a difficult to handle and hopeless syndrome. However, in recent years acute heart failure has become a growing area of study and this is the first book to cover extensively the diagnosis and management of this complex condition. The book reflects the considerable amounts of new data reported and many new concepts which have been proposed in the last 3-4 years looking at the epidemiology, diagnostic and treatment of acute heart failure.

Complex Cases in Echocardiography

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Complex Cases in Echocardiography
Jan 302018
 

 

Complex Cases in Echocardiography is a unique text written by a team of top cardiologists at Cedars Sinai Heart Institute. Drawing from their extensive library of echocardiograms, the authors feature 75 cases demonstrating uncommon and puzzling echo findings. Each case begins with a brief clinical presentation, and related images, followed by multiple-choice questions. Detailed answers include patient outcomes and follow-up recommendations. The cases include m-mode, 2-D, 3-D echo, TEE, and Doppler ultrasound. In addition, three fold-out matching quizzes present a particular physical finding or electrocardiogram to be matched with the patient’s corresponding echocardiogram. With the inclusion of cases seen in emergency situations as well as routine readings in an echo laboratory, this text not only introduces the reader to unusual cases, but also reinforces relevant techniques and applications. A companion website includes the fully searchable text and features additional cases, along with actual case video clips. Features: case-based format featuring 75 unusual and bizarre diagnostic dilemmas; questions and answers associated with each case 3 unique fold-out quizzes; and a companion website with fully searchable text and 45 additional cases.

Gene Therapy

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Gene Therapy
Jan 302018
 

 

I entered the gene therapy field in the mid-1990s, being fascinated by the immense potential of genes as drugs for the treatment of human disease. Since then, I have experienced the ups and downs of this discipline, and tried to contribute with my work and that of my laboratory to the development of innovative approaches to the treatment of cardiovascular disorders. During these years, I have had several opp- tunities to speak on gene therapy at lectures and academic lessons, and have often noticed that the field is very attractive to scientists of all disciplines. However, as yet no comprehensive book on the subject has been published. Indeed, most books in the field are either a collection of gene transfer laboratory protocols or deal with the subject in a rather superficial manner. Hence the idea to write a gene therapy textbook that is broad and comprehensive, but at the same time provides sufficient molecular and clinical detail to be of interest to students, professors, and specialists in the various disciplines that contribute to gene therapy. I have tried to keep the language plain and, whenever possible, non-technical. Since the book is intended to be a textbook in the field of gene therapy in both the basic science and clinical areas, whenever technical descriptions are required, they are provided.

Clinical Cardiac MRI (2nd edition)

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Clinical Cardiac MRI (2nd edition)
Jan 292018
 

Clinical Cardiac MRI is a comprehensive textbook intended for everyone involved in magnetic resonance imaging of the heart. It is designed both as a useful guide for newcomers to the field and as an aid for those who routinely perform such studies. The first edition, published in 2004-5, was very well received within the cardiac imaging community, and has generally been considered the reference because of its completeness, its clarity, and the number and quality of the illustrations. In this second edition, the aim has been to maintain the same quality while incorporating the newest insights and developments in this rapidly evolving domain of medical imaging. The four editors, all experts in the field, have taken great care to ensure a homogeneous high standard throughout the book. Finally, the selection of 100 real-life cases, added as online material, will further enhance the value of this textbook.

Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction
Jan 252018
 

Senior physicians, cardiologists, urologists, psychologists, and pharmacologists critically review the relation between heart disease and erectile dysfunction (ED) and explain for the practicing physician the effective new treatment options available for the cardiac patient with ED. The authors detail in concise language the latest thinking about the risk of sexually induced cardiac events, the efficacy and risks to cardiac patients of drugs used to treat sexual dysfunction, and the expert guidelines developed by prominent organizations on the optimal approach to sexual dysfunction in the cardiac patient. They also discuss the physiology of ED and the currently available therapies (sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil) may interact with the cardiac system, and the potential application of newer agents like phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors to cardiovascular disease.
