Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Foreword by Bernard Gersh and Historical Context by Eugene Braunwald

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Foreword by Bernard Gersh and Historical Context by Eugene Braunwald
Dec 072019
 

This book provides a comprehensive clinical review of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most common genetic disorder of the heart characterized by dysfunctional contractility at the sarcomere level, resulting in the development of abnormal and occasionally focal hypertrophy on a macroscopic level.
Editor, Srihari S. Naidu, has brought together a world renowned group of experts to review various different topics but, with a practical focus that will enable readers to establish the evidence-based best practice in any potential scenario. Treatment modalities including medications, pacemakers and defibrillators, and invasive septal reduction therapy (both surgical myectomy and alcohol septal ablation) will be discussed. Chapters on genetics, family screening, lifestyle concerns, and athletic screening have additionally been added given the ongoing controversies and differences of opinion on many of these issues.
Each chapter within Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy begins with key points of knowledge and ends with clinical pearls that have not previously been disseminated to the wider community. The practical approach of the entire book continues with dedicated chapters on creating a Center of Excellence, including how to facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach, and on case-based reviews and discussions allowing readers to further understand how to integrate the knowledge gained from each chapter into the comprehensive and longitudinal care of the individual patient and family. The last chapter takes the reader through the management of actual patients, showing over decades the nuances to diagnosis and management and the sometimes abrupt changes in the course of their diseases that necessitate correspondingly abrupt modifications in treatment.
This book will be an essential text for Trainees, Fellows, Residents and board-certified physicians in cardiology, interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery, cardiac imaging, sports medicine, paediatric cardiology, genetics and genetic counselling, and electrophysiology.

State of the Art Techniques in Critical Care Echocardiography: 3D, Tissue, Contrast

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on State of the Art Techniques in Critical Care Echocardiography: 3D, Tissue, Contrast
Dec 052019
 

This book covers all aspects of modern techniques used in the rapidly developing field of adult critical care echocardiography, 3D transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, myocardial tissue velocity and deformation assessment, and contrast echocardiography. Featuring multiple color illustrations and echocardiographic images, it provides essential information on the technical aspects and current specifics of the equipment, anatomical imaging guidance, and physiological and pathological approaches with a focus on critically ill population.
This book helps practitioners to not only understand the techniques and the applicability of these new technologies in various disease states, but also to apply them in a clinical setting. 3D echo, tissue deformation and contrast are opening tremendous new horizons for intensive care practitioners, offering them previously unimaginable insights into cardiac mechanics and anatomy and using non-invasive approaches for central hemodynamic diagnostic and monitoring management of intensive care patients. It also opens the way for completely new areas in clinical research.

This book is useful for intensive care physicians, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, emergency physicians and sonographers involved in the provision of advanced echocardiographic services in intensive care units and in critical care environments. It is also suitable for students undertaking a Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (Critical Care) with the Australasian Society of Ultrasound Medicine, adding to the existing literature used to prepare for the second and third parts examinations.

Echocardiographic Atlas of Adult Congenital Heart Disease

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Echocardiographic Atlas of Adult Congenital Heart Disease
Dec 052019
 


This atlas of echocardiography presents more than 100 cases of adult congenital heart disease, from diagnosis to treatment follow-up. The coverage is broad, encompassing atrial and ventricular septal defects, patent ductus arteriosus, cyanotic adult congenital heart disease, and numerous other anomalies, as well as findings on fetal echocardiography. For each disease, all echocardiographic images and views which proved of diagnostic value are arranged sequentially, with inclusion of transesophageal echocardiographic images whenever appropriate. Additional pertinent information is provided relating to diagnosis and treatment, and key teaching points are highlighted. The superb quality of the illustrations and the range of cases considered (including many rare ones) ensure that this atlas will be of great value for cardiology residents and fellows and highly relevant to day-to-day practice.

Comprehensive Textbook of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Comprehensive Textbook of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography
Nov 292019
 

Written by more than 100 internationally recognized experts, this volume is the first definitive and comprehensive text/reference on intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography. It features 1,000 full-color echocardiograms and covers every aspect of intraoperative TEE, from physics and “knobology,” to specific studies of cardiac valves and arteries, to the use of TEE in cardiac and noncardiac surgeries.

Major sections cover principles of echocardiography, intraoperative examination, critical care, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, thoracic aortic disease, congestive heart failure, interventional cardiovascular medicine, and noncardiac surgery. The text focuses on uses of TEE in surgical decision-making—preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative—and includes specific clinical recommendations.

Heart Valve Disease: State of the Art

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Heart Valve Disease: State of the Art
Nov 222019
 

This book provides a state-of-the-art description of the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease (VHD). With an aging population, the incidence and complexity of VHD has markedly increased and the introduction of transcatheter valve therapies have revolutionized the management of these frequent and serious cardiovascular diseases. The development of percutaneous valve interventions has revolutionized the management of VHD (or has dramatically changed its management)

Echocardiography in Acute Coronary Syndrome: Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Echocardiography in Acute Coronary Syndrome: Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention
Nov 222019
 

Coronary artery disease is the most commonly encountered problem in adult cardiology in the world. Echocardiography is the most commonly used imaging modality encountered in cardiology practice in the world. Even though there are many Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) reference books and echocardiography reference books, there is no single practical book so far in the literature with focus on the combined topics. The authors believe that this will be the first book to provide information on how echocardiography can be used in, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ACS.
