    Fetal and Hybrid Procedures in Congenital Heart Diseases

    This book is an ideal, up-to-date guide to the application of fetal interventions and hybrid procedures, in which the surgeon and the interventional cardiologist work together, for the treatment of congenital heart diseases at a very early stage when disease outcome may be altered. State of the art data and clear instruction are offered on techniques such as fetal pulmonary and aortic valve dilatation, fetal interatrial septum stenting, hybrid defect closure, hybrid stent implantation, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome therapy. Recognized experts describe the benefits of such early interventions, particularly evident in the case of valve disease, and explain how the hybrid strategy, by combining advantages and tools from each approach, can reduce invasiveness and risks and improve results. The book also looks ahead to the likely impact of new technologies, including nanotechnology, that will soon be available. Fetal and Hybrid Procedures in Congenital Heart Diseases will be a rich source of knowledge, step-by-step guidance, and practical tips and tricks for obstetricians/gynecologists, fetal cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, congenital cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensivists.

    Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Disease (Biomarkers in Disease: Methods, Discoveries and Applications)

    On an annual basis, over 17 million people die due to cardiovascular disease. This represents a third of all global deaths. The World Health Organisation have identified cardiovascular disease as the leading cause of death worldwide.  Although many cardiovascular conditions are preventable, there is a need for accurate characterisation and diagnosis of cardiovascular conditions before, during and after treatments. Much of this characterisation entails the use of biological indicators, i.e biomarkers. Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Disease combines detailed information on different cardiovascular conditions and the concomitant application of conventional, new and emerging biomarkers. It covers the latest knowledge, trends and applications. New platforms are described which combine advances in biomedical sciences, physics, computing and chemistry.

    Cardiac Reconstructions with Allograft Tissues

    By (author): Richard A. Hopkins

    Cryopreserved allograft tissues are now standard materials for the reconstructive cardiac surgeon. Since publication of the first edition (“Cardiac Reconstructions with Allograft Valves”) in 1989, the field has progressed dramatically with increased clinical use of cardiovascular allograft tissues, with the development of new surgical techniques, and with advances in the understanding of the fundamentals of valve transplantation biology and cryopreservation. As a result, over two-thirds of the present volume represents new material. Fifty-six authors bring their expertise to thirteen comprehensive, lavishly illustrated sections which discuss the principles of the use of homograft valves, major clinical series of homograft valves for both left and right ventricular outflow tracts, cryopreserved allograft tissue for cardiac reconstruction, cell biology of heart valve leaflets, cryobiology of heart valve preservation, morphological, biochemical, and explant pathology studies of allograft heart valves, allograft valve banking, as well as detailed explanation of surgical techniques for valve and root methods for left and right ventricular outflow tract reconstructions, the Ross operation and variants, and complex reconstructions. A final section presents potential future directions for the field. Over 400 illustrations, created expressly for this book, depict the surgical techniques from the perspective of the surgeon standing at the operating table. All surgeons performing pediatric and/or adult valve replacements and reconstructive cardiac surgeries will benefit from the described methods. Cardiothoracic residents and cardiologists will also find the text useful. It will provide the surgeon with an enhanced understanding of the biological and material properties of allografts and increased familiarity with the range of surgical techniques applicable for the use of these valves, particularly in the successful management of challenging cardiac reconstructions.>
