Evidence-Based Cardiology Practice: A 21st Century Approach


By (author): Thach Nguyen MD, Dayi Hu MD

Medical decisions are made on the basis of critical thinking and clinical judgments are based on the relevancy of the collected data. Medical decisions and clinical judgments are the results of the long thought process generated from formal learning, data from guidelines and practice standards, experience, an understanding of the incidence of disease in the population that the patient represents, and the likelihood of a disease being present in a specific patient.

This book introduces and encourages the concept of evidence-based patient care. This work presents the ideology and methodology of critical thinking and also the available evidence, management and cost effectives across the field. Evidence-Based Cardiology is aimed at any clinician who encounters a cardiac patient from the Clerk to the Internist to the Practicing Physician, encouraging disease management decisions to be based on the highest level of evidence.

Ventricular Assist Devices in Advanced-Stage Heart Failure


This book focuses on how ventricular assist devices (VADs) can help provide destination therapy for patients with terminal heart failure, one of the most serious diseases in the world today because of the tremendous number of patients, the high mortality rate, and the cost of care. One means of providing cardiological support for patients suffering from heart failure is with VADs, and more than 10,000 patients worldwide have now been implanted with these devices. Half of them already have lived more than one year, and 2,000 patients more than two years, after surgery. This improved survival means that we have reached a point where VADs can be used for destination therapy, not just for bridge-to-recovery or bridge-to-transplant. In view of the increasing number of patients with advanced-stage heart failure and the availability and longevity of transplanted hearts, VADs can solve many problems. In addition to providing information about the devices themselves, this book includes vital guidelines on long-term management and support of VAD-implanted patients’ everyday lives.

Current Approach to Heart Failure


This book is intended to be a link between guidelines and clinical practice, a complementary tool to help physicians to be well informed regarding the important field of heart failure. It will be a useful tool for professionals from all the fields of cardiology: non-invasive cardiology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology and cardiovascular imaging.

The topic of heart failure is continuously changing, with new important information being added constantly. The pathophysiology is better understood and there is a trend for a better characterization of special groups of population, such as oncologic patients with heart failure. The new imaging techniques have become valuable tools for the diagnosis of heart failure, while pharmacological and novel cell and gene treatments have evolved enormously.

The challenge for the practitioners is making the right selection of treatment strategy that best fits a patient. This book presents detailed information on the indications, selection and mechanism of action of these treatments, whether they be mechanical circulatory devices or pharmacological treatments. The contemporary pharmacological and non-pharmacological management of heart failure has the main target of early prevention of disease progression and the avoidance of heart transplant. In the era of shortage of donors, prevention is the mainstay of the therapeutic strategy, and this is the main philosophy of our book.

A PDA verision of this book is now available, powered by Skyscape. Click here to order and to find out more.

Cardiology is a rapidly changing and expanding field with management protocols changing regularly and newer categories of treatment options being discovered, with greater emphasis on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Swanton’s Cardiology (formerly Pocket Consultant: Cardiology) is a highly practical, user-friendly reference and learning text which is of great value to a wide variety of staff working with cardiac patients. Now in its sixth edition, this best-selling book has been highly praised for its readability, conciseness and clear illustrations and offers a clear and didactic style, presenting information in the form of lists and tables for quick and easy reference.

The sixth edition now offers:

  • a new design for easier navigation and use
  • highly practical advice with clear tables for quick and easy reference
  • five new chapters including Pregnancy and Heart Disease and Echocardiography

In addition, Swanton’s Cardiology covers some subjects in cardiology that are not well covered in clinical training, and this book will help fill any gaps in the reader’s clinical course, for example, sections on congenital heart disease, pacing, and cardiac investigations.

Therapeutic Embolization


By (author): Kiron Varghese, Srilakshmi Adhyapak

This book cites several clinical indications for embolization. Embolization is a safe and effective therapy for intra visceral bleeding, closure of arterio-venous malformations, non-surgical nephrectomy and splenectomy. It is especially useful in patients with several critical co-morbid medical conditions which preclude radical surgeries. It is organ preserving, with limited complications. 

In the text, the procedural details are described in each clinical situation. The materials used for the procedure are also be described. The procedural pitfalls and complications are detailed in addition to precautions to be taken during the procedure.

This will serve as a reference guide for cardiologists and vascular radiologists.
