Cardiovascular Catheterization and Intervention: A Textbook of Coronary, Peripheral, and Structural Heart Disea

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Cardiovascular Catheterization and Intervention: A Textbook of Coronary, Peripheral, and Structural Heart Disea
Apr 222019
 


The field of invasive and interventional cardiology is dynamic with frequent advances in both technique and technology. An internationally-renowned team of editors and over 100 contributors have shaped this textbook to provide clinicians with a thorough guide that covers the procedural and peri-procedural aspects of coronary, peripheral, and structural heart disease diagnostics and interventions.

This comprehensive and highly illustrated textbook presents critical information for anyone active in the field of cardiovascular interventions, including:
• Practical suggestions on how to set up a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory, choose the right equipment and minimize radiation exposure.
• A careful analysis of the general principles of percutaneous coronary interventions, the specific knowledge needed in different clinical scenarios, as well as the patient selection criteria for each invasive procedure.
• In-depth coverage of non-coronary interventions, including 13 chapters on peripheral vascular interventions, including carotid artery stenting, as well as newer procedures for intracranial stenosis treatment, septal defect repair, and left atrial appendage closure.
• An incorporation of emerging procedures in structural heart disease, such as percutaneous aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair—that although not presently mainstream, will likely become an important domain of interventional cardiologists.
Given the importance of appropriate training and credentialing for clinicians, the textbook also includes current national guidelines and policies on the performance of the various procedures.

Clinical and Genetic Aspects of Sudden Cardiac Death in Sports Medicine

 Cardiovascular, Genetics  Comments Off on Clinical and Genetic Aspects of Sudden Cardiac Death in Sports Medicine
Apr 192019
 


Sudden cardiac death is the leading cause of non-traumatic mortality in young (<35 years old) athletes, with recent data suggesting the incidence to be higher than what was previously estimated. The vast majority of deaths are caused by silent hereditary or congenital cardiac disorders.

Over the last decade, advances in our understanding of both the genetic and clinical mechanisms underlying these conditions, particularly those associated with a structurally normal heart, have led to advances in diagnosis and management including interventions and lifestyle modifications that aim to minimize the risk of sudden cardiac death (SDC). Coupled with effective screening programs, other strategies such as emergency response planning and the use of automated external defibrillators have also emerged as strategies in preventing and treating sudden cardiac arrest.

This book aims to provide an overview of the genetic and clinical aspects of SCD in young athletes, with particular emphasis on the specific issues related to diagnosis and management that these unique group of individuals pose to a physician. Specific diagnostic and management dilemmas will be illustrated through clinical cases and the most up-to-date guidelines regarding participation in sport outlined.

Human Heart, Cosmic Heart: A Doctor’s Quest to Understand, Treat, and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Human Heart, Cosmic Heart: A Doctor’s Quest to Understand, Treat, and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease
Apr 192019
 


Thomas Cowan was a 20-year-old Duke grad―bright, skeptical, and already disillusioned with industrial capitalism―when he joined the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s for a two-year tour in Swaziland. There, he encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price―two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come.

Both drawn to the art of healing and repelled by the way medicine was―and continues to be―practiced in the United States, Cowan returned from Swaziland, went to medical school, and established a practice in New Hampshire and, later, San Francisco. For years, as he raised his three children, suffered the setback of divorce, and struggled with a heart condition, he remained intrigued by the work of Price and Steiner and, in particular, with Steiner’s provocative claim that the heart is not a pump. Determined to practice medicine in a way that promoted healing rather than compounded ailments, Cowan dedicated himself to understanding whether Steiner’s claim could possibly be true. And if Steiner was correct, what, then, is the heart? What is its true role in the human body?

In this deeply personal, rigorous, and riveting account, Dr. Cowan offers up a daring claim: Not only was Steiner correct that the heart is not a pump, but our understanding of heart disease―with its origins in the blood vessels―is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding, with its attendant medications and risky surgeries, is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

In Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, Dr. Thomas Cowan presents a new way of understanding the body’s most central organ. He offers a new look at what it means to be human and how we can best care for ourselves―and one another.
