Abstract

This volume focuses on the etiology and morphogenesis of congenital heart diseases. It reviews in detail the early development and differentiation of the heart, and later morphologic events of the cardiovascular system, covering a wide range of topics such as gene functions, growth factors, transcription factors and cellular interactions that are implicated in cardiac morphogenesis and congenital heart disease. This book also presents recent advances in stem cell and cell sheet tissue engineering technologies which have the potential to provide novel in vitro disease models and to generate regenerative paradigms for cardiac repair and regeneration. This is the ideal resource for physician scientists and investigators looking for updates on recent investigations on the origins of congenital heart disease and potential future therapies.

Abstract

The world of echocardiography continues to be full of exciting new technological developments with an ultimate goal of better patient care. In this book, titled ""Echocardiography in Heart Failure and Cardiac Electrophysiology"", authors from various parts of the world contributed to the advancement of the field. We have included various chapters about the use of echocardiography and modalities of imaging in various common clinical scenarios - ranging from evaluation of commonly ignored right ventricle, imaging in congestive heart failure, to echocardiographic evaluation of critically ill patients. We have also included topics describing the use of echocardiography in cardiac electrophysiology with special interest to cardiac resynchronization therapy and atrial fibrillation ablation. These topics would be of great interest to the clinicians whether they are trainees, physicians, advanced care providers, or anyone involved in the patient care.

Abstract

Endocarditis remains an elusive challenge for clinicians to master. As the population ages and their comorbidities increase, the risk of infecting cardiac structures - both native and, the ever-increasing use of, prosthetic support technology - also increases. In addition, the global epidemic of intravenous substance abuse has also resulted in a substantial increase in the number of infected patients. Fortunately, advances in the diagnostic testing, imaging, and recognition of the importance of a multidisciplinary management team have also contributed to advances in the care of these critically ill patients. Nevertheless, optimal therapies need to be individualized and considered in the ever-increasing body of scientific literature on this complex and difficult problem.

Abstract

Aortic aneurysms are very silent, insidious, and sudden complicated pathologies with high incidence of sudden death. The aorta has several different parts, which are affected by aneurysmal pathology independently and separately or conjointly. Preventive medicine and determinative genetic heritage are the first steps during diagnosis and precaution. Preventive screening of the general population seems the best way for diagnosing early asymptomatic aneurysms with increased health cost. Because sudden death is the first symptom of aortic aneurysms, early interventional treatment is essential to protect fatal complications. In spite of open surgical repair which is the standard procedure, isolated or hybrid endovascular approaches are used widespread in the last decade due to reduction of procedural complications. This book is composed of the main topics on aortic aneurysms and surgical treatments to extend scientific and therapeutic perspective and vision of cardiac teams.

Abstract

This textbook on Angiography and Endovascular Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease provides a comprehensive angiographic approach to assess and determine optimal treatment strategies for peripheral artery disease (PAD). Each chapter focuses on angiography as it relates to the outcomes of endovascular work. It is an overview of the results obtained from a large number of actual cases with over 100 angiographic images of aortoiliac, femoropopliteal, below-the-knee, and below-the-ankle artery disease. Diagnostic and angiographic images of nonatherosclerotic PAD are also included. Anyone who is engaged in or preparing to engage in endovascular work for PAD should find this book useful as a reference and as an instruction material.

Abstract

The development of innovative interventional strategies and materials, primarily attributed to rapid strides in healthcare technology and education, has helped position interventional cardiology as one of the foremost disciplines in cardiovascular medicine. Patients diagnosed with inoperable conditions, including complex structural heart disease, have found renewed hope with the practice of these path-breaking therapeutic techniques. Nevertheless, the growing complexity of these procedures has also necessitated a close cooperation with different specialists, such as cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, anesthesiologists, and interventional radiologists. There is an urgent need to further explore the use of such alternative strategies of clinical management of cardiac disease, while limiting or potentially eliminating any procedural risks for the patient. This book is oriented to readers interested in learning the basic principles of interventional cardiology and offers a brief insight into the potential use of such treatments in routine clinical practice.

Abstract

The purpose of this publication is to systematize the knowledge necessary to make Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or Cardiorespiratory Resuscitation (CRR) known to nursing health specialists, which translates as a set of temporary and internationally standardized maneuvers assigned to ensure the oxygenation of the vital organs when the blood circulation of an individual stops suddenly, independently of the cause of the Cardiorespiratory arrest (CRA). This knowledge is found correctly delimited in The Basic Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Manual, which especially emphasizes the step-by-step methodology and techniques to follow for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). This is a basic work that cannot be overlooked by health care specialists, the society, and the public in general, because of the high probability that this situation will present at some moment in life. Thus, it is recommended to be prepared to help some person in an emergency situation. The manual is an excellent consultation work for health professionals. Given that what is expressed in this work is fundamental for life, and its objective is to make known the relevant information concerning the knowledge of CPR.
