Echocardiography: A Practical Guide for Reporting and Interpretation, Third Edition 3rd Edition

Echocardiography: A Practical Guide for Reporting and Interpretation is a step-by-step guide to clinical echocardiography.

This new edition has been extensively revised and includes new international guidelines, grading criteria and normal data. The book presents an up-to-date discussion of echocardiography use in both acute and critical care settings and provides increased guidance for clinical interpretation, including how echocardiography can help inform surgical decisions. In addition, the content has been extended, particularly in the consideration of valve disease and cardiomyopathies.

Providing a pragmatic approach to clinical echocardiography, the book also covers examples of conditions requiring urgent clinical advice. It contains a summary of formulae as well as supporting online images and videos.

Review

“My interpretation is that the authors have clearly achieved their ambition to produce a small but comprehensive, inexpensive practical and reference aid for Echocardiographers of all grades of experience. I consider that this book should be available within all Echo departments and additionally I strongly recommend all Echocardiographers to have their own personal copy.” – Dr Gordon Williams, BSE Newsletter

“Technological advances and broadened knowledge about the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases have made echocardiography a very important part of the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disorders. This book differs from the classic textbooks and instead is an easy-to-read, step-by-step guidebook. It will serve as a valuable resource when echocardiographers need quick and practical information.” –  Ahmet Afsin Oktay, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Doody Enterprises

Transesophageal Echocardiography for Congenital Heart Disease 2014th Edition

Transesophageal Echocardiography for Congenital Heart Disease represents a unique contribution as the only contemporary reference to focus exclusively on the clinical applications of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in congenital heart disease (CHD).

Valvular Heart Disease in Clinical Practice 2009th Edition

Over the last three decades, major advances in the management of diseases of the valves have been seen. While cardiac catheterization was in the 1970s, the only means for con?rming the diagnosis, Doppler echocardiography has become the corner stone for accurate assessment of valve disease, even in fetuses. Now not only the disease can be identi?ed but also the rate of disease progression (e. g. lea?et calci?cation and stiffness) can be accurately measured and quanti?ed by echocardiography and multislice/electron beam CT imaging. Surgical treatment of valve disease has also w- nessed great advances, having moved from traditional valve replacement to sophisticated repair procedures and the use of extracorporeal pump support in some patients. Robotic valve surgery has also proved a great success, in well selected cases, and is expected to have a fruitful future. Furthermore, in special circumstances, conventional surgical valve excision has now been replaced by percutaneous catheter-based valve replacement for aortic and pulmonary disease. This approach reduces the risk from the surgery itself, avoids general ana- thesia and many potential post-operative complications. This book discusses the practicalities of the diagnosis and treatment of the various aspects of common heart valve d- eases, covering most clinical and surgical issues. It is designed to assist clinicians in the management of patients with valve disease and provide them with answers to many of the clinical questions that arise.

Valvular Heart Disease in Clinical Practice includes chapters from a distinguished panel of contributors looking at the practicalities of diagnosing and treating common heart valve diseases and covering all of the standard clinical and surgical issues. It is designed to assist in the management of patients with valve disease and provide cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, intensivists, and emergency medicine physicians with answers to the clinical questions that arise in their practice.
