- 2014 SpringerBrown, David L.; Stergiopoulos, Kathleen.This book addresses the increasing demands on cardiology clinicians to manage complex patients with pregnancy, cancer, noncardiac surgery, systemic diseases and concurrent cardiac problems . It provides an up-to-date, detailed, evidence-based approach to key issues facing the consultant including practical clinical advice on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease. Evidence-Based Cardiology Consult addresses the issues specific and relevant to a cardiology consultation and focuses on cardiac issues in both the general medical patient and in specific populations. Topics covered include: The evaluation of chest pain, acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, infective endocarditis, sudden cardiac death, and imaging in cardiology consultation Cardiac problems in women, the elderly and athletes Cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease and neurologic disease Pregnancy-related cardiac diseases Cardio-oncology, including cardiac disease resulting from chemotherapy and radiation in oncology patients. This book is a key practical resource for the management of patients with cardiac disease whether it be the primary diagnosis or as a result of other medical conditions. Therefore this is a must read for cardiology trainees and practicing cardiologists, neurologists, physicians in maternalfetal medicine, oncology, nephrology, radiology, and those who participate in preventative medicine programs.
- 2011 SpringerBerenson, Gerald S.That precursors of adult coronary artery disease, hypertension, and type II diabetes begin in childhood have been clearly established by the Bogalusa Heart Study. This unique research program has been able to follow a biracial (black/white) population over 35 years from childhood through mid-adulthood to provide perspectives on the natural history of adult heart diseases. Not only do these observations describe trajectories of cardio-metabolic risk variables leading to these diseases but provide a rationale for the need to begin prevention beginning in childhood. The trajectories of the burden of cardio-metabolic risk variables in the context of their fetal origin and chromosome telomere dynamics provide some insight into the metabolic imprinting in utero and aging process. The observed racial contrasts on cardio-metabolic risk variables implicate various biologic pathways interacting with environment contributing to the high morbidity and mortality from related diseases in our population. To address the seriousness of the onset of cardiovascular disease in youth, approaches to primordial prevention are described focussing on childhood health education as an important aspect of Preventive Cardiology.

- 2015 SpringerAnastasiadis, Kyriakos; Antonitsis, Polychronis; Westaby, Stephen.This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the structure and function of the right heart, comprising the right atrium, right ventricle, tricuspid valve, and pulmonary circulation. The right ventricle works against a reduced afterload as compared to the left ventricle, and the clinical picture of heart failure is generally dominated by the symptoms of left heart failure and hence initially neglected until they evolve into overt right heart failure with splanchnic congestion. When picked up at the very late stage, medical management and mechanical support of right heart failure are considered ineffective, and heart transplantation offers the only treatment option. The Failing Right Heart will be an essential reference for cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists and cardiac intensivists on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with congenital or acquired right heart disease. The book deals with anatomy and physiology of the right heart, the etiology and the role of imaging of right heart failure, as well as the treatment options, from pharmacological regimes to surgery. Algorithms and flow diagrams are included to provide the reader with illustrated snapshots of the decisions involved in the management of these patients.
- Female electrocardiogram : special repolarization features, gender differences, and the risk of adverse cardiac events2015 SpringerRautaharju, P.This book reviews the promising new electrocardiographic (ECG) predictors of cardiac morbidity and mortality with the primary objective being to evaluate gender differences in special ECG features and in ECG predictors for the risk of adverse cardiac events and to explore mechanisms for gender differences in risk predictors. The Female Electrocardiogram elucidates the emergence of gender differences in ECG features and evaluates repolarization-related ECG predictors of various clinical disease categories with a special scope to interpret the mechanism and gender differences of the findings. The author examines how the predictors of adverse cardiac events are linked to basic electrophysiological finding whenever adequate information is available in this rapidly advances realm of research. The overall goal of the book is to facilitate understanding of the mechanisms and clinical relevance of repolarization abnormalities in both clinical and epidemiological applications, and as such will be of great interest to all who manage patients using ECG whether they be cardiac electrophysiologists, clinical cardiologists, critical care physicians or any medical professional in the disciplines covered.

- 2013 SpringerMariani, Giuliano; Marzullo, Paolo.The recent development of three-dimensional imaging techniques has provided an enormous amount of information relevant to the clinical management of patients at low and high risk for coronary artery disease. However, while progress in each individual technique has been rapid, the correlation of findings obtained with radiology, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging is still relatively neglected. In this book, qualified experts in cardiac imaging present the basic concepts of cardiac disease and imaging and compare the findings obtained in particular subspecialties with those acquired using other techniques. In this way the reader will learn how images and techniques can be integrated in clinical practice to the benefit of the patient. In addition, the issue is addressed of reducing the patient's exposure to ionizing radiation through appropriate multimodality integration. Physicians ranging from cardiac surgeons to internal medicine specialists and even public health administrators will find this book invaluable in understanding the role of hybrid cardiac imaging.

- 2013 SpringerGalli, Maria Albina; Danzi, Gian Battista.Electrocardiography has an ever-expanding role in pediatric cardiology evaluation. The specific competencies required for its optimal use in this setting, however, generally lie beyond the expertise of cardiologists used to dealing with adults. This guide - the product of extensive practical experience in the field of pediatric cardiology - proposes a very simple method for reading neonatal and pediatric ECGs that is based on the application of straightforward criteria and permits the immediate recognition of normal and pathological patterns. The first part of the guide presents and describes this methodology and the parameters of normal pediatric ECGs, while the second part focuses on specific pediatric anomalies. More than 150 ECGs displaying both normal and pathologic findings are included, all of which have been collected from clinical practice and analyzed using the proposed method. This book will be an invaluable reference tool for all cardiologists who deal with newborns and children.

- 2014 SpringerFurst, Branko.What drives the circulation? In this comprehensive review of existing circulation models, the conventional view that the heart is a pressure-propulsion pump is challenged. The existing models fail to explain an increasing number of observed circulatory phenomena. A unifying circulation model is proposed in which the blood, responding to metabolic demands of the tissues, is the primary regulator of cardiac output. This new model arises from accumulated clinical and experimental evidence. The heart, rather than being an organ of blood propulsion, assumes a secondary role and generates pressure by impeding the flow of blood. This is supported by examples from the fields of early embryonic circulation, comparative phylogeny, functional morphology, exercise physiology and a range of clinical scenarios. The Heart and Circulation: An Integrative Model offers a paradigm shift in the understanding of circulatory phenomena. It will become a valuable resource for all those clinicians, researchers, educators and students who, having been confronted with the paradox of the circulation, are looking for a broader interpretation.

- 2013 SpringerWells, F. C.Leonardo's heart studies represent the pinnacle of his anatomical endeavours. They integrate structural form and dynamic function in a way that called upon his extensive experience and knowledge of hydrology, engineering, mathematics and architectural design. In his work on the heart, his use of ingenious diagrams as well as detailed representational drawings is cleverly combined with carefully crafted verbal descriptions of complicated physiological concepts. Some of which, developed through drawing, wereso advanced that only now with the advent of accessible technology and advances in modern knowledge of the heart, it is possible to re-interpret his conclusions and reveal how accurate his logical reasoning and pure observation really was. Several of his ideas continue to sit well alongside our modern understanding of cardiac physiology and heart function. This book features all 64 of Leonardo's drawings on the heart and its physiology, accompanied by translations of his accompanying notes.

- 2014 SpringerErnst, Gernot.This book is an evaluation of heart rate variability (HRV), the tendency for the heart rate to oscillate, increasing and decreasing depending on a number of factors. Such oscillations can give information on the state of the complex systems involved and can reveal a higher mortality risk. The author discusses the basic functional structures responsible for HRV and the evidence for this. In addition, the book provides a framework to understand HRV within the perspective of systems biology and presents basic principles and related mathematical models. Heart Rate Variability provides a thorough investigation of the clinical aspects of the concept, defining the level of risk, the practical management algorithms and clarification of the common mechanisms, such as heart rate turbulence. As such, this book will be of interest to all involved in the research and management of all the cardiovascular conditions related to this phenomenon.

- 2015 SpringerNaidu, Srihari S.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.

- 2015 SpringerAbbas, Amr E.This book provides an overview of the current available invasive coronary imaging modalities, presenting a concise review of the technologies, indications, appropriate uses, and pitfalls. Since the establishment of invasive coronary angiography, the limitations of the technique have not gone unnoticed. As a result, multiple invasive imaging modalities have been developed in an attempt to characterize the true severity of coronary artery disease, and to guide percutaneous coronary interventions. The evolution of novel interventional imaging modalities is progressively altering our understanding of coronary artery disease diagnosis and prognosis. Interventional Cardiology Imaging: An Essential Guide is an invaluable tool for interventional cardiologists and cardiologists in training who wish to have a concise and practical review of all available modalities of invasive coronary imaging.

- 2013 SpringerLuks, Andrew; Glenny, Robb W.; Robertson, H. Thomas.Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an important diagnostic test in pulmonary medicine and cardiology. Capable of providing significantly more information about an individual's exercise capacity than standard exercise treadmill or 6-minute walk tests, the test is used for a variety of purposes including evaluating patients with unexplained exercise limitation or dyspnea on exertion, monitoring disease progression or response to treatment, determining fitness to undergo various surgical procedures and monitoring the effects of training in highly fit athletes. Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing is a unique new text that is ideal for trainees. It is presented in a clear, concise and easy-to-follow manner and is capable of being read in a much shorter time than the available texts on this topic. Chapters describe the basic physiologic responses observed during sustained exercise and explain how to perform and interpret these studies. The utility of the resource is further enhanced by several sections of actual patient cases, which provide opportunities to begin developing test interpretation skills. Given the widespread use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in clinical practice, trainees in pulmonary and critical care medicine, cardiology, sports medicine, exercise physiology, and occasionally internal medicine, will find Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing to be an essential and one of a kind reference.

Most of these diseases are chronic in nature and require long term outpatient follow up. Subsequently, outpatient providers are finding themselves responsible for an increasing number of patients with cardiovascular issues. Appropriate diagnosis and management of cardiac disease is essential to providing high quality care in an efficient manner. There is a wide spectrum of providers involved in the care of these patients, many of which are not cardiologists. The Manual of Outpatient Cardiology is written in a practical, didactic format designed to deliver point-of-care information to practitioners of cardiology and assist non-cardiologists with the efficient management of cardiac disease. Highly illustrated with schematics and useful clinical figures, this book is an essential reference to all outpatient cardiology procedures.

- 2014 OvidWagner, Galen S.; Strauss, David G."One of the strengths of Marriott's Practical Electrocardiography through its more than 50-year history has been its lucid foundation for understanding the basis for ECG interpretation. Again, in this revision, we have attempted to retain the best of the Marriott tradition--emphasis on the concepts required for everyday ECG interpretation and the simplicities, rather than complexities, of the ECG recordings. During preparation of the 9th and 10th editions, Tobin Lim coauthored many of the 11th edition chapters and served as the primary developer of the digital content associated with that edition. Tobin Lim's input continues into this 12th edition, and David Strauss has led even further into the electronic-based interactive learning experiences. More than 30 of the figures that evolved through previous editions have now been converted through the creative expertise of Mark Flanders into animated movies accessed via QR codes imbedded in the book. David has also collaborated with electrocardiographic educators who are especially skilled in e-based education to add interactive video content to many of the 12th edition chapters. Each of the now 24 chapters is divided (as indicated in the table of contents) into discrete, compact "learning units." Each learning unit begins on a new page to provide blank space for the reader's notes. The purpose of the learning units is to make this book easier to use by allowing the reader to be selective regarding the material to be considered at a particular time. Because the modern student of electrocardiography is primarily oriented to a visual perspective, we have typically begun each page with an illustration"--Provided by publisher.

- 2011Krishnamurthy, Gaurav; Ingels, Neil B.; Miller, D. Craig; Nelson, Drew.The mitral valve (MV) is a bicuspid valve that allows the unidirectional flow of blood from the left atrium (LA) into the left ventricle (LV). MV disease afflicts millions each year worldwide and if sufficiently severe, surgical therapy is indicated. Surgical repair is currently preferred but valve replacement is often required. Current replacement therapy involves implantation of a mechanical valve, associated with anticoagulation/ thromboembolic complications, or a tissue valve, associated with less than ideal durability. To overcome these limitations, a currently important research goal is to create bioengineered autologous tissue valves. A key component of this thrust is to understand more completely the structure and function of native valves which reliably cycle 100,000 times per day, more than 3 billion times in an average lifetime. Toward this end, this thesis presents, for the first time, the material properties of the anterior mitral leaflet in the beating heart. The methodology used in this research is as follows: Surgical preparation and radiopaque marker data acquisition: 16 miniature radiopaque markers were sewn to the MV annulus, 16 to the anterior MV leaflet, and one on each papillary muscle tip in male sheep. 4-D coordinates were obtained from biplane videofluoroscopic marker images (60f/s) during three complete cardiac cycles. Data were acquired sequentially with repeat control runs between saddlehorn electrical pulse stimulation and intravenous administration of esmolol to study the effect of pharmacological agents on mitral leaflet contractility, and vagal nerve stimulation to assess the potential for central neural control. Inverse finite element analysis: A finite element model of the anterior MV leaflet was developed using marker coordinates at the end of isovolumic relaxation (IVR, when pressure difference across the valve is approximately zero), as the stress-free reference state. Leaflet displacements were simulated during IVR using measured left ventricular and atrial pressures. The elastic moduli in both the commisure-commisure (Ecirc) and radial (Erad) directions were optimized using the Method of Feasible Directions to minimize the difference between simulated and measured displacements. The derived material properties were found to be orders of magnitude greater than previously determined ex vivo material properties. Histologic studies have shown that the mitral leaflets, rather than being simple collagen flaps (as once thought), contain complex networks of contractile elements (smooth and striated muscle; valvular interstitial cells), blood vessels, and both afferent & efferent nerves. The finding of higher stiffness in vivo than ex vivo suggests a mechanistic role for these elements; to modulate the stiffness of the active mitral valve in vivo -- a property necessarily missing in excised, flaccid valves ex vivo. Using the derived material properties, a forward analysis was performed to determine the stress-strain behavior of the anterior leaflet at various trans-mitral pressure gradients during IVR. This analysis showed that the leaflet material behaved linearly over a physiologic range of pressures. It is also shown in this thesis that these leaflet material properties vary over the cardiac cycle; leaflet stiffness is higher during early systole (Isovolumic Contraction, IVC) most likely due to force development in cardiac muscle cells in the annular third of the anterior leaflet, and as this force development wanes during systole, the stiffness of the leaflet drops. Stimulation of the neutrally-rich annular saddlehorn region adjacent to the anterior leaflet was shown to almost double leaflet stiffness, whereas administration of a beta-blocker (Esmolol) eliminated the early systolic increase in anterior leaflet stiffness. The initial homogeneous finite element model of the anterior leaflet was further developed to incorporate regionally varying material properties. This heterogeneous finite element model confirmed that Esmolol selectively reduced leaflet stiffness in the annular region (which contains the slip of cardiac muscle) during IVC and did not affect edge stiffness (which is devoid of cardiac muscle). Saddlehorn stimulation caused an increase in leaflet stiffness values for all regions (edge, belly and annular regions) during both IVC and IVR. Loss of atrial contraction had a similar effect on the anterior leaflet as administration of Esmolol, i.e. without atrial depolarization the leaflet stiffness during IVC in the annular region dropped to baseline IVR values. Finally, the functional role of autonomic nerves in the anterior leaflet was investigated by remote stimulation of the vagus nerve. This study showed that vagal nerve stimulation can result in a decrease in anterior leaflet stiffness during both IVR and IVC. In summary, the findings of this thesis suggest a permanent paradigm shift from one viewing the mitral valve leaflets as passive flaps to one viewing the leaflets as active, potentially adaptive, neurally-controlled tissues whose complex function and dysfunction must be taken into account when considering not only therapeutic approaches to mitral valve disease, but even the definitions of mitral valve disease itself. The improved understanding of the structure-function relationships in these native, active valves could uncover new targets for pharmacologic intervention, as well as provide important insights to improve the future design and durability of tissue-engineered mitral valves.

- 2014 SpringerGaggin, Hanna K.; Januzzi, James L.Preparing for the cardiology board examination is an intensely stressful period and traditionally relies on the participant searching through their own references, whether that be the large textbooks, small handbooks and their own notes. Good books are generally too long and time-consuming, while shorter books are either insubstantial in content or rely too much on the views of one author. The key elements for a successful reference for those taking their boards are a balanced proportion of essential content alongside rare but frequently tested topics, the wisdom of experts in the field, a practical questions session at the end of every topic and additional visuals not possible on the two-dimensional page. In the MGH Cardiology Board Review, the Editors have compiled the expertise of over 72 experienced authors from the Mass General in a succinct volume, applying methods thoroughly tested in the Board Review Conference. In addition, two very important sections are included on ECGs and images, contents of which are derived from the board examination answer keys, the very ones that readers are expected to know. Plans on how to best approach the board examination preparation and what additional resources to go to are provided. In short, this book has all the strengths to ensure your success on the boards exam.

- 2013 SpringerBerman, Daniel S.; Leipsic, Jonathon; Min, James K.Over the last decade, remarkable innovations in transcatheter technologies have led to the rapid development of minimally invasive therapies that have challenged conventional treatment. Amongst these, none is as remarkable as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). An archetype of bench-to-bedside medicine, the origins of TAVR spanned the expertise and vision of clinicians, engineers, researchers and imagers. With increasing numbers of TAVR procedures and large-scale trials demonstrating an unparalleled reduction in mortality for inoperable patients with severe aortic valvular disease, the theme underpinning the foundation of TAVR that of a multidisciplinary approach to its development persists in its practice. This approach brings together a diverse group of experts to optimize patient outcomes and this extends to the convergence of different types of imaging specialists and modalities to support preparation for and performance and follow-up of TAVR. Multimodality Imaging for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement assembles the very best authorities in the field to create the ultimate resource to address the imaging needs associated with TAVR. It provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of aortic stenosis, the evidence supporting the use of TAVR, and an integrated approach to the indications, procedural aspects and pitfalls of imaging in TAVR. The reader will also gain an insight into which tests are optimal in specific situations and a step-wise method to harvest all the essential information provided with each modality. Thus, this book represents a key resource for all working in the field whether they be in training or practicing physicians, cardiac researchers, cardiac imagers, interventionalists, clinical cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, or any medical professional involved in the management of these patients.
