Heart Diseases in Children: A Pediatrician’s Guide

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

As front line health care providers for children, pediatricians are entrusted with the responsibility for discovering early signs of heart diseases in this complex patient population. Especially in the newborn period, the presentation of pediatric heart disease is frequently obscure, and the consequences of these illnesses can be devastating if not caught early and managed correctly.

This comprehensive, easy to understand book is a ready guide to acquiring the proficiency and confidence necessary to decipher the wide spectrum of disease presentations. Case scenarios give life to each chapter, with key images and illustrations reinforcing notable concepts. Special attention is given to the interpretation of chest radiographs and the role of echocardiography and catheterization. All chapters are dual authored by an academic cardiologist and a practicing general pediatrician, resulting in this book’s elegant blend of medical authority, real life value, and fresh practical viewpoints.

Heart Diseases in Children: A Pediatrician’s Guide is divided into four sections. The first is an overall approach to heart diseases in children with ample discussion to diagnostic testing. The second and third sections cover the spectrum of congenital heart defects and acquired heart diseases. The fourth section prsents issues related to office cardiology. The book concludes with an extensive drug appendix. Significant and meaningful online complements, heart sounds and murmurs are available at www.pedcard.rush.edu providing practitioners the materials necessary to build confidence in their ausculatory skills.

This unique book is a go-to resource for pediatricians, pediatric residents, family practitioners, medical students and nurses, conveying essential information for the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric heart diseases.

Cardiovascular Imaging

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Yi-Hwa Liu, Frans J. Th. Wackers

A host of imaging techniques are available to clinical cardiologists, including nuclear imaging, echocardiography, computerized tomography, and magnetic-resonance imaging. Chamber size, ventricular function, valvular function, coronary anatomy, and myocardial perfusion are among a wide array of cardiac characteristics that can all be assessed noninvasively.

Cardiovascular Imaging systematically reviews each of these major techniques and provides clinical data from well-designed research studies. Following a brief overview of non-invasive cardiac imaging and the stress modalities used to detect coronary disease, case-based chapters are devoted to each of the various imaging techniques. The final chapter provides a glimpse of future possibilities, particularly with respect to molecular imaging. The text is illustrated throughout with amply-sized images.

Demonstrating the values and limitations of the imaging techniques, the book enables practitioners to determine which test, in which patient population, and for which purpose would be the most appropriate to use.

Chronomics and Continuous Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: Vascular Chronomics: From 7-Day/24-Hour to Lifelong Monitoring

By (author): Kuniaki Otsuka, Germaine Cornelissen, Franz Halberg

This fascinating volume applies the concept of chronomics to the medical treatment of hypertension. It starts with the recent updates on chronomics, the analytic techniques, and their application to community-based assessments. The authors advocate the use of 7-day/24-h records of blood pressure, which is effective for finding masked hypertension, masked morning surge, and other rhythm abnormalities. Most organisms, from cyanobacteria to mammals, are known to use the circadian mechanism. However, our body systems also demonstrate circaseptan (roughly weekly), circannual (roughly yearly), and even longer rhythms. Chronomics monitors the physiological data and then analyzes the superimposed rhythms, isolating the cycles mathematically to determine how organisms and their environment interact. It is the study of interactions among time structures (chronomes) in and around us.

Coronary Graft Failure: State of the Art

Coronary artery bypass surgery has been developed since 1960s to overcome proximal coronary artery disease. Worldwide, the number of patients that are undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery is steadily increasing. Depending on diverse risk factors, one fifth of grafts are occluded at 1 year. For the remaining, graft patency last usually 8–15 years. This book brings together the main specialists in the field to review the current evidence on epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic, new imaging techniques and specific therapeutic modalities. This volume aims to update a complex subject represented by coronary graft failure. The authors of this monograph are interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and research scientists, who will be creating four parts and 71 chapters that are divided in order to give a uniform interpretation of this condition including all aspects of coronary graft failure This book not only provides the most up-to-dated scientific evidence in the field but in a two-step manner. Each chapter is divided into a at a glance part that reflects the basic evidence on the topic, and a “full picture” part that brings all what the advanced reader should be brought with.

Adult and Pluripotent Stem Cells: Potential for Regenerative Medicine of the Cardiovascular System

There is hardly an area of research developing so quickly and raising so many promises as stem cell research. Adult, embryonic and recently available induced pluripotent stem cells not only foster our understanding of differentiation of endo-, ecto- and mesodermal lineages to all organs of the body, but foremost nourish the hope that cells grown in culture can be used for regeneration of diseased organs such as the heart damaged by myocardial infarction. This book focuses on perspectives of stem cells for regenerative therapy of cardiovascular diseases. Based on the EC consortium INELPY, it reviews the field and disseminates major outcomes of this project. Thus it introduces the reader to this fascinating area of research and incorporates very recent findings interesting to the expert, spanning the field from bench to bedside. The compilation of contributions is unique as there is yet no similar comprehensive overview combining stem cell research with preclinical and clinical evaluation as well as engineering of tissue patches for transplantation. As such it will be an invaluable source of information for all researchers in the stem cell and tissue regeneration field including bioengineers as well as for all clinicians interested in regenerative therapies, especially for ischemic cardiomyopathies.
