The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care is the official textbook of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) of the ESC. This new updated edition continues to comprehensively approach all the different issues relating to intensive and acute cardiovascular care. The textbook is addressed to all those involved in intensive and acute cardiac care, from cardiologists to emergency physicians and healthcare professionals. The chapters cover the various acute cardiovascular diseases that need high quality intensive treatment, but also organisational issues, cooperation among professionals, and interaction with other specialities in medicine.
The largest section of the textbook is devoted to non-cardiac disease which could acutely involve the cardiovascular system. Other noteworthy chapters are on ethical issues – which are so important in acute cardiac care, such as patient safety, donor organ management and palliative care. A unique characteristic of the textbook is the presence of a whole section devoted to biomarkers, which underline the growing importance of laboratory medicine in the field of intensive and acute cardiac care.
A particular asset of the textbook is the digital version available on Oxford Medicine Online, which has additional online features including an extra chapter on lung ultrasound and many more images and videos, as well as a full list of references from all chapters. The online version is updated by the same authors on a yearly basis and is available with the print version and separately on a subscription basis, allowing easy access to content in digital and mobile optimised format. The textbook aligns directly with the core training curriculum for ACCA.
This is the first comprehensive review of the edge-to-edge technique for mitral repair, which was introduced into the surgical armamentarium in 1991 by one of the authors, Ottavio Alfieri. The surgical technique employed in edge-to-edge repair today provides the basis for the only reliable method of percutaneous correction of degenerative mitral regurgitation. The book traces the evolution of the edge-to-edge technique from a surgical to a percutaneous approach, documenting indications, contraindications, technical aspects, controversies and clinical outcomes. Detailed attention is devoted to the MitraClip procedure, which reproduces the Alfieri stitch percutaneously and has to date been used in more than 20,000 patients worldwide. The state of the art in MitraClip therapy is described, with clear explanation of when and how to use the MitraClip system. The reader will learn all aspects of percutaneous edge-to-edge repair, which is recommended for use in carefully selected patients in the new ESC/EACTS guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease and in the ESC guidelines on heart failure. The group at San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, has accumulated by far the largest experience in the world with the technique and over the years has been very active in its promotion and scientific evaluation. This book reflects that depth of knowledge and will be of great interest to cardiac surgeons and interventional and clinical cardiologists.
This book covers all the major aspects associated with pathophysiological development of cardiac arrhythmias (covering enhanced or suppressed automaticity, triggered activity, or re-entry), from basic concepts through disease association, limitations of current pharmacotherapy and implant therapies and on-going trials and analysis of new biomarkers based on current knowledge of cellular interaction and signalling. The book describes novel and state-of-the-art methods for differentiating between the major types of arrhythmia, structural abnormalities and current practice guidelines and determination of risk stratification associated with sudden cardiac death. A particular focus is on arrhythmias associated with atrial fibrillation and includes details of associations with cardiac disease, current detection, analysis and imaging and future perspectives.?
The aim of the book is to serve as a practical guide for junior doctors, primary care physicians and cardiology trainees. This book is a quick reference in everyday clinical practice and also as reminder of the necessary clinical steps for diagnosis, referral and management. Cardiovascular conditions have been described that clinicians are likely to encounter on a regular basis in their practice. Chapters have been written by trainees under the supervision of a senior author with expertise in that particular area, thus addressing most everyday practical diagnostic and management issues and the potential questions that a non-specialist or junior doctor may have. The handbook is practical in nature and its chapters incorporate practical subheadings such as “Must do’s” and “Red flags”, placing the emphasis on therapeutics and pharmacological treatment. The inclusion of flowcharts, diagrams and images are a feature allowing easy understanding of key learning objectives.
Interventional cardiology has transitioned from angiographic subjective analysis of stenosis severity into assessment of plaque characteristics and objective assessment of stenosis severity. The evolution of novel interventional imaging modalities is progressively altering our understanding of coronary artery disease diagnosis and prognosis. This book will be an essential companion to assist interventional cardiologists in better assessing patients with Coronary Artery Disease. It will encompass and review all interventional imaging modalities and provide guidance for interventional cardiologists to use these modalities. ?

Manual of Electrophysiology is a comprehensive guide to cardiac electrophysiology, brought together by a team of US based experts in this field. The book focuses on current understanding and the most recent advances in electrophysiology. Consisting of 16 chapters, the book begins with basic understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), the pharmacology of antiarrhythmic drugs, and an introduction to electrophysiology studies. Various arrhythmias are discussed in detail, from tachycardia and bradycardia to cardiomyopathy and Brugada Syndrome. The latter part of the book provides a number of therapeutic guidelines for heart conditions, including surgical and catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring. With 350 full colour images and illustrations enhancing practical advice on the diagnosis and therapy of cardiac diseases, Manual of Electrophysiology provides indispensable guidance for physicians, clinicians and cardiologists. Key Points * Essential guide to cardiac electrophysiology from a team of experts at the Universities of California and Iowa * Discusses the most recent advances in the field * Provides therapeutic guidelines for a number of heart conditions *350 full colour images and illustrations
