 Summary / Résumé

The only book available on transesophageal echocardiography of the mitral valve, this impressive and highly illustrated text provides a concise yet in-depth analysis of the mitral valve from an experience of over 10,000 transesophageal echocardiograms performed by the authors.
A starting point or 'how-to' reference for studying the mitral valve with transesophageal echocardiography, Mitral Valve Transesophageal Echocardiography is also a highly useful resource for diagnostic examples of mitral pathology for physicians who practice transesophageal echocardiography.
Written by the world's expert on transesophageal echocardiography, key features include: coverage of normal mitral valve structure and function, followed by abnormalities of structure and function, evaluation of prostheses, interventional cardiology techniques and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography, a concise explanation of measurements of cardiac chamber sizes, function and Doppler for transesophageal echocardiographic applications, transesophageal echocardiographic images juxtaposed with correlative anatomic specimens to provide a clear understanding of normal and abnormal mitral valve anatomy.
Based on the definitive atlas by St John Sutton and Maniet, Mitral Valve Transesophageal Echocardiography is a one-of-a-kind text dedicated to an important diagnostic technology, which will undoubtedly prove essential for all those working in the echo lab, whether imaging or reporting, as well as those clinicians referring patients for echo tests.

PHARMACOLOGICAL THERAPIES FOR PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASE
MUKHERJEE
Hardback 206 pp.
16x24 2005
EUROS 80,94 ( FF 530,93 )


 Summary / Résumé

Patients with peripheral vascular disease (PVD) are at increased risk of death when compared with age-matched healthy controls.
They are also, whether symptomatic or not, six times more likely to die within ten years when compared to patients without the disease.
This excess mortality exists even if coronary artery disease is not clinically present, and makes the treatment of PVD a highly important and pressing topic.
In this fully up-to-date text, Dr Mukherjee and his excellent team of twenty-one contributors present the reader with all of the currently available clinical information for treating PVD patients effectively, discussing, for example, treatments such as: risk factor modification and therapy to prevent cardiovascular events, pharmacological therapy for claudication, exercise training for the treatment of claudication, surgical or endovascular revascularization.

approx.price..EUROS 75,69 ( FF 496,49 )


 Summary / Résumé

The burden of coronary heart disease (CHD) is considerable, representing many tens of millions of deaths a year in both the developed and developing world.
This new edition of a classic text reviews the well-established risk factors for CHD and looks forward to disease prevention, equipped with lessons from the past.
The book covers aetiology and aspects of public health, including studies within a single population and international studies, important areas of methodological development, trials to test preventive strategies, and the application of epidemiological and other knowledge to the development of public health policy for the prevention of widespread disease.
It is an all-encompassing work containing contributions from the world authorities in the field.
The book is divided into four sections.
The introduction reviews advances in the understanding of, and the current status, of risk factors for CHD.
Section 2 looks at recent global trends and emerging patterns of CHD morbidity and mortality in several countries, and includes chapters on work done under the auspices of WHO on the global burden of disease in relation to smoking and blood pressure.
Section 3 focuses on advances in understanding the aetiology of CHD with each chapter focused on a particular risk factor.
Section 4 explores measures of prevention and intervention in terms of public health policy with specific examples from around the world.
This book will be of interest to a wide and multi-disciplinary readership including those interested in an overview of research on CHD epidemiology, those actively concerned with prevention of cardiovascular disease, those looking for instructive examples of application of research to public health policy, to practitioners of epidemiology and public health, and as a reference source for medical students and postgraduate students.

CARDIAC CT-PET AND MRI
DILSIZIAN Vasken, POHOST Gerald M.

Hardback approx.
18x25 2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 126,09 ( FF 827,10 )


 Summary / Résumé

The standard procedure for defining the anatomic extent and severity of coronary artery disease is catheter-based selective coronary angiography.
While there are advantages to coronary angiography, it is invasive with some risk of complications and requires a brief period of hospitalization, making it relatively expensive.
Cardiac CT, PET and MR is a complete technique-oriented reference, offering real alternatives to the “standard procedure”.
Non-invasive techniques of coronary artery lumen imaging, such as multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) as well as complementary and at times more useful physiologic and/or metabolic imaging techniques provided by positron emission tomography (PET) are clearly detailed throughout this book.
Cardiac CT, PET and MR therefore provides an excellent reference for all cardiologists, radiologists, and nuclear medicine physicians involved in the diagnosis and risk assessment of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease.
With the advent of these non-invasive techniques, the future of invasive coronary angiography will be reserved primarily for therapeutic rather than diagnostic purposes.
Accordingly, this book provides a unique and essential contribution to the developing field for both physicians and students.

Instrumentation, imaging techniques and protocol.
1 Positron emission tomography.
2 Cardiovascular magnetic resonance: Basic principles, methods and techniques.
3 Multidetector and electron-beam computed tomography of the heart.
Clinical applications.
4 PET assessment of myocardial perfusion.
5 PET: Metabolism, innervation and receptors.
6 MR angiography: Coronaries and great vessels.
7 Cardiovascular magnetic resonance: Evaluation of myocardial function, perfusion and viability.
8 MSCT coronary imaging.
9 Cardiac computed tomography: Evaluation of myocardial function, perfusion and viability.
Concurrent noninvasive assessment of coronary anatomy, physiology, and myocellular integrity.
10 PET and MRI in cardiac imaging.
11 PET and CT in cardiac imaging: Is a paradigm shift from SPECT to hybrid.

LA PLONGEE EN APNEE : PHYSIOLOGIE, MEDECINE ET PREVENTION (4° ED.)
CORRIOL Jacques-Henri
Broché 206 p.
16x24 2006
32,00 EUROS ( 209,91 FF)


 Summary / Résumé

Durant des millénaires, la plongée en apnée était l'activité professionnelle de certaines populations : plongeurs de perles, pêcheurs d'éponge, ramasseurs d'algues ou d'invertébrés.
Ces activités sont actuellement en voie d'extinction ou ont déjà disparu et voilà plus de 60 ans, la plongée en apnée est devenue un loisir.
Et en quelques décennies, les activités aquatiques en apnée se sont développées, donnant lieu à de nombreuses compétitions aboutissant à une chasse multiforme aux records.
L'ambiance aquatique et les variations rapides de pression hydrostatique, combinées à l'apnée, imposent à l'organisme du plongeur des contraintes et des adaptations physiologiques inhabituelles qui peuvent engendrer des troubles et même des accidents jusqu'alors inconnus.
Ce sont ces différents aspects qui sont envisagés dans cet ouvrage, complètement mis à jour dans cette 4e édition.
Après un bref rappel des techniques et des outils des plongeurs en apnée au cours des âges, les effets physiologiques de l'immersion, les modifications respiratoires et cardiocirculatoires au cours de l'apnée et de la plongée sont étudiées.
Les effets de l'entraînement sur les performances, en particulier sur la durée et la profondeur, sont également abordés.
Enfin, l'auteur expose les incidents et accidents, l'évolution des records, ainsi que la prévention et la sécurité du plongeur.
Cette étude détaillée de la physiologie de la plongée en apnée permet de répondre à de nombreuses questions, telles que la durée de l'apnée volontaire et les facteurs respiratoires qui la limitent, la profondeur maximale de plongée et ses risques, de mieux comprendre la pathologie spécifique de ce sport et de tenter de diminuer par des mesures simples de prévention le nombre des accidents.
Ces données constituent des références précieuses pour tous ceux qui sont concernés : moniteurs de plongée, entraîneurs, médecins du sport, médecins des fédérations, organismes ou institutions faisant appel à des plongeurs pratiquant l'apnée.

ANGIOTENSIN II RECEPTOR ANTAGONISTS : CURRENT PERSPECTIVES, (2ND ED.)
MANCIA Guiseppe
Hardback 192 pp.
15x21 2006
EUROS 86,19 ( FF 565,37 )


 Summary / Résumé

Since angiotensin II is one of the most potent vasoconstrictors and an important stimulus for the secretion of aldosterone from the adrenal gland, the development of of angiotensin II inhibitors is an important step in regulating blood pressure.
This class of drug is well-tolerated by pateints and these drugs have the added advantage over ACE inhibitors in that they are not associated with cough.
Because most drugs can be given once daily and, like ACEIs, they have a useful additive hypotensive effect in combination with diuretics, they are a welcome therapeutic tool in the treatment of hypertension.
This Second Edition builds on the success of the first and brings to the reader all the latest developments, clinical trial data, and the contributors's personal perspectives when treating patients with angiotensin II receptors antagonists.
Offers chapters by well-known contributors in the fields of both hypertension and heart failure, especially with regard to pharmacological interventions.
Covers the new role of AIIR in neuroprotection.

GUIDE TO CARDIAC CELL THERAPY
PERIN Emerson
Hardback approx.
16x24 2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 141,75 ( FF 929,82 )


 Summary / Résumé

Sparked by a new understanding that the development of tissues is not restricted to the embryonic phase of development and thus that regeneration of tissues can occur in adults, the emerging field of stem cell therapy has grown exponentially in the last several years.
Crucially, the research and findings associated with stem cell research overlap into many other areas, such as basic cell biology, molecular biology and hematology, and the proliferation of clinical studies involving stem cell research is gradually crossing over into the practice of medicine as many patients may become candidates for such novel treatments.
As a response to this, Guide to Cardiac Cell Therapy is a comprehensive but understandable resource that makes this exciting field accessible to clinical practitioners.
Bridging the gap between basic science and practice, it is a useful introduction to the area as well as a cutting-edge update of the developments in stem cell therapy as applied to cardiovascular disease.

BRECKER Stephen
Hardback approx.
15x23 2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 141,75 ( FF 929,82 )


 Summary / Résumé

The field of device closure of defects of the inter-atrial septum has expanded rapidly over the past ten years, and it is likely that there will be a further sharp increase in numbers of procedures being performed in the near future.
With more and more adult patients presenting with this problem, it is imperative that interventional cardiologists know how to deal with it, and yet there is no currently available comprehensive text covering this subject.
Addressing this need, this book discusses all aspects of the growing field of transcatheter device closure of defects of the atrial septum.
Key areas covered include: issues related to the anatomy of the atrial septum, imaging of atrial septal defects and patent foramen ovale, the different types of defect that are amenable to percutaneous device closure.With an international team of expert contributors reviewing current imaging techniques and the common techniques used for closure, this unique work gathers together the world leaders in device closure to assess the individual products that are available.
Practical, extensive, and full of invaluable insights from experienced practitioners, this text will provide the interventional cardiologist with a useful resource with which to embark upon this important technique.

PERCUTANEOUS INTERVENTIONS FOR CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE
SIEVER Horts, QURESHI Shakeel, WILSON Neil
Hardback approx.
16x24 2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 160,05 ( FF 1049,86 )


 Summary / Résumé

This handbook is written for pediatric cardiologists who want to specialize in interventional cardiology and really need to know how to do procedures step by step.
It is also written for adult cardiologists who want to learn more than just "shooting for the coronaries".
Therefore topics are all kind of interventions in congenital heart disease and the new field of "Structural heart disease".
This includes acquired valvular heart disease, post-myocardial infarction ventricular septal defects, PFO closure, closure of the left atrial appendage and paravalvular leak closure but also techniques to treat diseases of the aorta.
The focus is on devices and techniques which are approved not necessarily in all but at least in some countries.
The combination of interventions in congenital and acquired heart disease is driven by the experience that many techniques are similar or complement each other.
Techniques and experience in one field helps to solve problems in the other field.
This book will help to overcome barriers between pediatric and adult cardiologists.
It is time for a new specialist, the cardiovascular interventionalist.
