New edition of the classic complete reference book for cardiologists and trainee cardiologists on the theory and practice of electrocardiography, one of the key modalities used for evaluating cardiology patients and deciding on appropriate management strategies.
Common Problems in Cardiology is a comprehensive guide to common cardiology disorders. Each disorder is described by its pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, risks, treatment and management. The book is divided into 23 chapters, each covering a specific disorder, from chest pain and hypertension, to pericardial diseases and cardioembolic stroke. A complete differential diagnosis and analysis is provided with each symptom. Information on cardiovascular risk and non cardiac surgery, preoperative cardiac diagnostic testing, preoperative assessment of patients with valvular heart disease, and revascularisation prior to noncardiac surgery is also provided. Common Problems in Cardiology covers perioperative management of coronary stents, beta-blockade, statin use, pacemakers and anticoagulation management, as well as preoperative assessment of candidates for kidney and liver transplantation. Edited by Kanu Chatterjee, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa and Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the University of California, this authoritative and comprehensive book is an ideal resource for postgraduates, interns, general physicians and practising cardiologists. Key Points * Comprehensive guide to common cardiology disorders * Format clearly presents pathophysiology, presentation diagnosis, risks, treatment and management * Full colour illustrations, images and tables throughout * Edited by US based expert in the field of cardiology
This practically oriented book opens by describing the basic Cardiac MR (CMR) sequences and Cardiac CT (CCT) acquisition techniques, offering step-by-step guidelines on acquiring CMR and CCT studies and analyzing images. The main body of the book provides a comprehensive description of the study protocols most suitable for particular diseases and discusses their respective rationales. In addition, it highlights key findings for every pathological condition, complemented by extensive illustrations. The book especially addresses the needs of junior cardiologists and radiologists embarking on the regular use of MR-based and CT-based cardiac imaging, though it also offers a valuable reference manual for senior specialists. Of particular benefit is the inclusion of both CMR and CCT, techniques which are usually treated separately, despite the regular use of both at advanced Cardiac Imaging Units.
Providing optimal care for heart failure patients is a complex challenge that requires cooperation and coordination across multiple disciplines. Now, you can apply the successful techniques pioneered at the Cleveland Clinic, which are carefully explored and explained in this text.
Drs. McCarthy and Young draw on their experience to show how an interdisciplinary team works together to:
arrive at a proper diagnosis
initiate medical therapy
make decisions regarding the best use of percutaneous therapies, surgical therapies, electrical therapies, and the use of mechanical circulatory support devices and transplantation.
Throughout the book, they present the most updated evidence for both drug trials and surgical trials. They emphasize the benefits of performing the most complete surgery that is practical, then continuing medical therapy. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of treatment, but the authors recognize that the best way to manage an individual patient is often to adapt a variety of different therapies. They state their opinions clearly, identifying which part of care is science and which is art.
Heart Failure: A Combined Medical and Surgical Approach is a true collaboration that helps you identify the most effective strategies – operative interventions, pacing and ICD treatment, new diagnostic tools, and pharmacotherapeutic developments – and implement them for your patients.
Complex physiopathological relationships have been proven to exist between two of the body’s most vital organs; the brain and the heart. In Cell Cycle Regulation and Differentiation in Cardiovascular and Neural Systems Antonio Giordano, Umberto Galderisi and a panel of the most respected authorities in their field offer an in-depth analysis of the differentiation process in two systems that have profound relationships with one another. The text looks at several aspects of the cardiovascular and nervous systems from a new point of view, describing the differences and similarities in their differentiation pathways with an emphasis on the role of cell cycle regulation and cell differentiation. Topics discussed include neurogenesis in the central nervous system, neural stem cells, and the basic-helix-loop-helix transcription factors in neural differentiation. Ground-breaking and authoritative, Cell Cycle Regulation and Differentiation in Cardiovascular and Neural Systems is a must have for all researchers in cardiovascular medicine and neuroscience and will prompt the scientific community to perceive cell cycle regulation and differentiation under a novel and more comprehensive light.

A text and atlas valuable to all cardiologists regardless of specialty
Over the past decade, with the advent of modalities such as MR, CT, and nuclear medicine, cardiology has become one of the most visual of all specialties, and this is the first text to address that reality. Color Atlas and Synopsis of Electrophysiology is a unique combination atlas and text that offers step-by-step management guidance for patients undergoing electrophysiology studies, plus hundreds of state-of-the-art clinical, diagnostic, and interventional images that cover the entire spectrum of electrophysiology.
Color Atlas and Synopsis of Electrophysiology is especially designed for busy clinicians who need concise patient management guidelines and a comprehensive collection of images in a consistent find-it-now presentation. Each topic begins with a case scenario that gives issues a clinical, real-world perspective and includes evidence ratings from the combined ACC/AHA guidelines.
Both authors, Dr. Daoud and Dr. Kalbfleisch, were included on America’s Best Doctor list in 2009

The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is the latest edition of this essential guide to identifying the signs and symptoms of heart diseases. The book is divided into 14 chapters, initially covering different types of pulse and the measurement of blood pressure. A chapter on heart sounds is followed by a three-part discussion on heart murmurs, including the use of recordings of heart sounds and video recordings of jugular pulsations. The signs and symptoms of cardiac disease are covered in detail, and the manifestations of cardiovascular disease are described. The book concludes with two chapters on electrocardiography (ECG). Finally, the book provides a self-assessment chapter, with clinical scenarios which use history and clinical findings from actual patients. Enhanced by nearly 100 full colour images and illustrations and edited by a team of cardiology experts based in Toronto and Chicago, The Art and Science of Cardiac Physical Examination is ideal for cardiologists and general physicians wishing to keep their knowledge of examination for heart disease up to date. Key Points * Latest edition of guide to signs and symptoms of heart diseases * Previous edition published 2006 (9780673997661) * Edited by a team of US and Canada based cardiology experts *97 full colour images and illustrations * Includes interactive CD ROM

Training and experience are the foundation on which an accomplished interventionalist stands. No book can supplant this foundation, but in Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaneous Intervention the authors, most of whom trained at the Thoraxcentre, Rotterdam, provide a practical text that creates confidence in performing percutaneous coronary and peripheral intervention. They address the basics (things you wouldn’t dare to ask), the pitfalls (problems to avoid before you start), the proven approaches (facts you are expected to know), and the new innovations (techniques you will want to be first to perfect).
