CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE IN ADULTS
POPELOVA Jana, OECHSLIN Erwin
Hardback approx.
2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 160,05 ( FF 1049,86 )


 Summary / Résumé

The adult population with congenital heart disease is increasing rapidly.
More than 80% of children with congenital heart disease now reach adulthood, with some congenital heart diseases diagnosed for the first time in adults.
The operations performed during childhood may have severe residual findings, which need to be repaired.
Cardiologists of all subspecialities will meet these patients and should be familiar with the most common problems and the basic principles of care for adults with congenital heart disease.
This highly illustrated and well-written text is aimed at cardiologists and internal medical doctors, whether qualified or in-training, who are not specialized in the field of congenital heart disease, and will, nevertheless, meet these patients more and more often in their daily practice.
The complicated subject of congenital heart disease is written in a very simple, easy and comprehensive way.
The purpose is to give a brief overview of the morphology, physiology, diagnostic methods, therapy and prognosis of the most common congenital heart disease in adulthood.
Echocardiography is a superior method for diagnosing congenital heart disease in adulthood.
However, the echocardiographer has to know what to look for, to recognize basic disease patterns, otherwise he will miss the diagnosis.
Adult Congenital Heart Disease contains many excellent drawings and echocardiographic documentation with practical suggestions.
All the echocardiograms come from routine examination and only from adults, whose examination is often much more difficult than that of the children.

approx.price..EUROS 99,55 ( FF 653,01 )


 Summary / Résumé

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a relatively new therapy for heart failure patients which involves the use of pacemaker or defibrillator devices to manage heart failure.
It is a unique therapy that involves not only electrophysiologists, but also echo experts and heart failure specialists.
Over the last 3 decades the prevalence of heart failure has been steadily increasing and it is now one of the most common medical problems encountered in the medical ward, ER and in cardiology practice, therefore management of heart failure is one of the current focuses of hospital and outpatient practice.
The purpose of 'Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy' is to provide not only basic knowledge, but also an up-to-date summary of new advances and evolution in the topic of CRT for heart failure.
Since CRT is a new therapy which still undergoes rapidly advancement, it is imperative to provide rapid updates in key issues.
These include technological advances, the unique role of imaging to assess mechanical dyssynchrony, trouble shooting, recent key clinical trials, and corporation of monitoring capabilities into CRT or CRT + defibrillation devices.
CRT is an incredibly important topic in the current era of managing heart failure patients and this is very well reflected by the large amount of sessions, symposium and lectures that are being conducted in this subject throughout the world in major cardiology conferences, such as AHA, ACC, ESC, HRS, American Society of Echo (ASE) meeting, EuroEcho, Cardiostim, HFSA, European Society of HF meeting as well as many others.
Public / Audience :
Primarily electrophysiologists, but also echocardiologists and heart failure specialists as well as general cardiologists, physicians, allied health professionals and nurses.

HEART FAILURE : PHARMACOLOGIC MANAGEMENT
FELDMAN Arthur
Hardback approx.
2006 not yet published
approx.price..EUROS 99,55 ( FF 653,01 )


 Summary / Résumé

Heart failure is a devastating disease of epidemic proportions.
Physicians are faced with an increasingly large choice of treatment options and questions including: how different genetic, racial and gender backgrounds can influence a patient's response; how to monitor treatment once it has begun; and what side-effects can be expected from these agents.This book is the essential guide for physicians working with these issues to optimise their use of pharmacologic therapy for patients with heart failure.
This extensively referenced text provides both the biologic and pathologic underpinning for the use of each pharmacologic agent currently recommended, including the clinical investigations that have led to our understanding of the risks and benefits associated with the use of these drugs.
In addition, this book reviews several areas, including vasopressin antagonists, that are under active investigation, but which are expected to prove fruitful in the therapy of patients with heart failure.
Heart Failure: Pharmacologic Management is written by individuals with extensive expertise within the field and is the only text to focus on pharmacologic therapy.
It will assist the practitioner in easily making sense of the extensive number of treatment agents available and should be considered a vital contribution to your bookshelf.

 Summary / Résumé

Written by world-renowned leaders in the fields of clinical electrophysiology and arrhythmology, the volume has represented since many years a biannual update on the most recent advances in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
The main chapters deal with atrial fibrillation and other supraventricular tachyarrhythmias, diagnosis and management of ventricular arrhythmias, risk stratification and prevention of sudden death in post-MI patients.
The systematic and didactic approach to each topic makes the book a very useful tool for physicians working in the field.

Supraventricular Arrhythmia and Atrial Flutter: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia: which mechanism, diagnosis and treatment? Right and left atrial flutter: how to differentiate them on the basis of surface electocardiogram? Atypical atrial flutter: how to diagnose, locate and ablate it? Catheter ablation of typical atrial flutter: which longterm results and predictors of recurrences? Atrial fibrillation ablation of typical atrial flutter: who is at risk? Electroanatomical mapping to support ablation of complex supraventricular arrhythmias: does it matter? Atrial Fibrillation: Pathophysiology, Clinical and Therapeutical Aspects: Idiopathic atrial fibrillation: which electrophysiological substrate? Inflammation and infection: an underestimated cause of atrial fibrillation? Atrial remodelling 10 years later: what have we learned? Atrial fibrillation and heart failure: is one epidemic feeding the other and how to interrupt the vicious circle? Atrial fibrillation: what is the impact of the different therapies on quality of life?.Pill in the pocket approach for outpatient treatment of recentonset atrial fibrillation: the obvious solution? Pharmacological cardioversion of atrial fibrillation: which drugs to prefer, class I C or class III? Early recurrences of atrial fibrillation: how to predict and prevent them? When to attempt cardioversion of atrial fibrillation in the era of AFFIRM and RACE? The exception.
Dronedarone for prevention of atrial fibrillation: an unfulfilled promise? Management of AF in patients with no structural heart disease.Primary prevention of Atrial Fibrillation in hypertensive patients: which news from LIFE trial? Prognosis and Management of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction.
PostCABG atrial fibrillation: which incidence, predictors, treatment and longterm outcome? Post PCI atrial fibrillation: which clinical and prognostic significance? Perioperative interruption of warfarin: how effective and safe is bridging therapy with low molecular weight heparin ? How
