Advances in technology and human skill have made possible percutaneous catheter-based procedures for a wide spectrum of structural heart disease. A growing number of structural heart diseases that over the past two decades would have required open heart surgery can be safely treated using percutaneous catheter-based procedures.Traditionally, guidance of catheter-based procedures is done using fluoroscopy and two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2D TEE). The recent introduction in the clinical practice of RT 3D TEE has overcome most of limitations of 2D TEE. The purpose of this book is to describe the use of this imaging modality in percutaneous interventional procedures underlying its growing role and acceptance among the interventional cardiologists but also emphasizing areas of weakness. Because today interventional cardiology ranges from closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects, to repair of mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis, from the closure of left atrial appendage and prosthesis dehiscence, to the recent use in electrophysiological procedure, this book targets not only specialists in echocardiography and interventional cardiology but also general cardiologists. General cardiologists will find in any chapter anatomy of the structure treated (i.e. atrial septum, mitral valve...), a description of the morphopathology as seen with RT 3D TEE (degenerative or ischemic mitral regurgitation) the up-to-date indications to the specific percutaneous treatment and typical and unusual clinical cases.
This book provides a concise overview over the pathology of retinal angiogenic diseases and explains why anti-angiogenic therapy is effective in so many patients. The reader is guided through the various clinical indications for anti-angiogenic therapy and made aware of its merits as well as current challenges and limitations. It is explained how, since its introduction for the treatment of exudative age-related macular degeneration in 2006, anti-angiogenic therapy has revolutionized the way in which we treat a range of ocular diseases. All of the authors are established experts in their respective fields who share their extensive knowledge and clinical experience with the reader. This book is both a valuable introduction to anti-angiogenic therapy in ophthalmology and a day-to-day companion for all ophthalmologists seeing patients with some of the most prevalent retinal diseases.
This book reviews the surgical management of the mitral and tricuspid valves. It provides a detailed examination of the recent exponential improvements in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease processes affecting these valves, which has resulted in significant changes in the strategies that can be applied. Chapters include analysis of the basic sciences related to the anatomy and physiology of the mitral and tricuspid valves, pre-operative imaging of these valves, illustrating the variety of pathologies encountered, and critically a comprehensive step-by-step approach to the peri-operative management and surgical techniques pertaining to each pathological process. Operative Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Surgery systematically covers all major topics involved in the current practice of an adult cardiac surgeon who performs operations on the mitral and tricuspid valves. It is therefore suitable for the cardiac intensive care unit specialist interested in improving their knowledge of cardiac patient management. It is an essential resource for all adult cardiac surgeons and cardiac intervention specialists at any stage of their career.
If you have been told that you must take statins or risk a devastating heart attack or stroke, you need to read this book. Dr Kendrick, a well-known statin sceptic and author of the bestselling The Great Cholesterol Con, has returned to the diet-heart-cholesterol battlefield to warn that people are being conned. In relaxed and humorous style, he lifts the rock to allow the reader to peer underneath. He points out that statins, even in high-risk individuals, increase life expectancy by a mere four days after five years of treatment. Yet adverse effects have been swept under the carpet by researchers who are closely tied to the industry. The way to avoid heart disease, and strokes, is simple - but, as this riveting book shows, it has nothing to do with lowering cholesterol levels.

Transradial Access: Discover the Benefits, Understand the Procedure Transradial Access: Techniques for Diagnostic Angiography and Percutaneous Intervention offers a single source for both novice and experienced interventional cardiologists for safely and effectively performing transradial catheterization procedures. First described in 1989, the transradial approach for coronary angiography and percutaneous interventions has seen a constant and progressive increase around the world as a result of significantly reduced procedural complications, shorter hospital stays, increased patient satisfaction, and lower associated costs compared with the transfemoral approach. Yet despite its apparent benefits, adoption of this technique in the United States has been slow, largely due to the increased technical aspects of entering a smaller artery, accessing the central circulation and engaging the coronary arteries from this approach. In addition, until recently the technique was not routinely taught in the majority of training programs. This book flattens that learning curve by highlighting the technical aspects of transradial diagnostic and interventional procedures, and includes detailed discussion of normal vascular anatomy of the hand and arm, indications and contraindications for transradial access procedures, patient and catheter selection, tips and tricks for both beginner and advanced operators, procedural pitfalls and potential complications. Techniques are demonstrated in detail using both still images and video. Whether you are an experienced transfemoral operator who wants to refine and expand your technique or a new transradial operator looking to master the technique, this comprehensive text holds the key to mastering this revolutionary procedure.
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.
