This book focuses on the practical aspects of clinical electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias in the young. It represents a compilation of the clinical course, electrophysiologic studies, pharmacological management, and transcatheter ablation therapy in patients from infancy through young adulthood. Topics include the mechanism, ECG characteristics, electrophysiologic findings, treatment, and prognosis of tachyarrhythmias and bradyarrhythmias; specialized subjects including syncope, cardiac pacemakers, and implantable cardiac defibrillators; pharmacology of antiarrhythmic agents; and the roles of allied healthcare professionals in the management of arrhythmias in the young. This revised edition includes new or expanded chapters on the molecular biology mechanisms that underlie the structure and function of the cardiac conduction system; new navigation technologies for detecting cardiac arrhythmias while minimizing radiation exposure; genetic disorders of the cardiac impulse; and sudden cardiac death in the young, particularly athletes. Featuring contributions from practicing clinical cardiac electrophysiologists affiliated with the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at the University of Michigan, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology in the Young, Second Edition, is a premier reference for cardiologists, residents, and medical students.

Learning Cardiac Auscultation: From Essentials to Expert Clinical Interpretation

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Learning Cardiac Auscultation: From Essentials to Expert Clinical Interpretation
Apr 112018
 


The foundation of this handbook lies in the supremacy of careful, clinical observation in medicine. The science and application of auscultation, albeit not without its imperfections, represent a learnable, tangible, personal approach to assessment of the heart and remains crucial in medical practice. Today’s medicine tends towards the high tech, discarding simple approaches that can and should steer clinicians towards when to utilize expensive testing, and at the most can, potentially, outperform technology for accurate cardiovascular diagnosis. Within a cost conscious, personalized approach to medicine, the art of clinical examination of the heart could never be more alive, or more important. Technology needs a clinically informed platform upon which to provide benefits to patients with careful clinical observation providing proper identification of patients in need of additional testing and avoiding unnecessary expensive testing.

Learning Cardiac Auscultation: From Essentials to Expert Clinical Interpretation provides a clinically-oriented approach to the astute observation of heart sounds and other aspects of the cardiovascular examination. It describes key clinical and auscultation features, and clinical clues to the diagnosis. More importantly, auscultation of the heart should not just end with a simple diagnosis, but an unearthing of nuances of the diagnosis, for example, describing the possible severity or diagnostic implications of the auscultation findings.

 Focuses on head and neck injuries in the young athlete, includingdiagnosis, current treatment guidelines and prevention
Covers concussions, skull and facial fractures and injuries aswell as visual dysfunction and the cervical spine
Includes discussion of sideline response, transportation, rehabilitation and preventative gear

From the Back Cover
Providing the most current information on injuries to the head and neck sustained by young athletes, this practical text presents a thorough review of the complex and emerging issues for young boys and girls involved in contact/collision sports. While concussions are among the most common and dangerous injuries, fractures of the skull and facial bones and structural brain injuries are no less serious and are discussed in chapters of their own, as are stingers and other cervical spine and cord issues and disease. Injuries to the eyes, ears and jaw are likewise examined. Prevention is a major theme throughout the book, as seen in chapters on protective head- and neckwear, transportation of injured players, and sideline response and return-to-play. Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes will be an excellent resource not only for orthopedists and sports medicine specialists treating growing athletes, but also specialists and team physicians who are on the scene at sporting events where these injuries may occur.

Atlas of Perioperative 3D Transesophageal Echocardiography: Cases and Videos

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Atlas of Perioperative 3D Transesophageal Echocardiography: Cases and Videos
Apr 092018
 

This book presents a series of over 50 cases in 3D transesophageal echocardiography. In each case, background information is followed by a step-by-step approach to patient diagnosis and postoperative outcomes. The book’s most outstanding highlight consists in over 600 illustrations, which mainly focus on 3D transesophageal echocardiography in combination with 2D transesophageal echocardiography, X-ray fluoroscopy and computed tomography to demonstrate the various cardiovascular pathologies. Since the echo images obtained in clinic practice are moving images, it also includes more than 450 videos, which effectively supplement the static illustrations.
The atlas is divided into 11 chapters. Chapters 1 through 3 describe abnormalities affecting mitral, aortic, tricuspid and pulmonary valves, while prosthetic valves are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 details abnormalities of the aorta. Chapters 6-8 examine coronary artery disease, congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathies, while Chapter 9 explores cases of infective endocarditis. Chapter 10 deals with tumor and mass lesions, and the other cases are collectively addressed in Chapter 11. Offering a valuable new resource, the book will enhance the usefulness of echocardiography during operations as a “third eye” for surgeons.
