Transesophageal Echocardiography in Clinical Practice (Paperback, 2009): Mark Belham Transesophageal Echocardiography in Clinical Practice (Paperback, 2009)

When imaging a patient s heart the number of modalities available to choose from seems to be ever increasing and the clinician needs to be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of each modality in order to best answer the question posed. If more than one modality can answer the question then an appreciation of local expertise and patient preference is needed (although, in general, echocardiography can answer the question and should be the first line investigation).

The first transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) was performed in 1976 (M-mode only) and there were some who doubted that it would find a place in mainstream cardiac imaging. Over the last 30 years the technological advances in TEE have been exponential and have been reflected by its increasing utilization. Currently almost all echocardiography labs undertake TEE and the vast majority of valve operations are performed with TEE guidance.

Those who are active in cardiac imaging know that the modality is unsurpassed because of its spatial and temporal resolution and that it is relatively easy to get good images with minimal training. These same practitioners will also be aware that, for these reasons, there are practitioners who bypass the appropriate training and use TEE as a very blunt diagnostic tool.

The purpose of this book is thus to give practical guidance to those undertaking training in the art of TEE. It is not an exhaustive text to be used for reference but one that should be used in conjunction with hands-on experience. If used correctly it will help in realizing the true potential of TEE.

It is well known that cardiovascular events occur more frequently in the morning as blood pressure (BP) levels have been shown to increase during the period from night to early morning. In recent years, clinical research using ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) or home BP monitoring has clarified that morning BP and BP surge are more closely related to the cardiovascular risk than clinical BP. This practical manual from field leading expert, Dr. Kazuomi Kario, reviews recent evidence on "morning" and "nocturnal" hypertension and the IT technologies physicians can use to support patients in home monitoring BP. Guidance on management via antihypertensive drugs is also discussed and with the aim of promoting "perfect 24 hour BP control".

A Case-Based Approach to Pacemakers, ICDs, and Cardiac Resynchronization 2-volume set is for any individual who sees patients with implantable devices, or who will be taking an examination related to device management. SPECIALLY-PRICED 2-VOLUME SET! Many caregivers working in the field of medicine find that one of the best ways to learn is by working through clinical cases, and for many individuals it's even more helpful to work through the examples as "unknowns." This is especially true in the arena of implantable cardiac devices. In an effort to provide this experience, experts from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, have produced two volumes of case studies that encompass variations of normal and abnormal function of pacemakers, ICDs, and CRT devices. The texts have been written collaboratively by five clinicians with differing backgrounds in an effort to present the cases in such a way that they are applicable to a variety of caregivers. Cases for this book were selected based on clinical relevance and their usefulness for illustrating general principles, practical tips, or interesting findings in device practice, with the goal of advancing general concepts in device management. The first volume includes introductory and intermediate cases. The second volume includes additional intermediate cases as well as advanced/multipart cases. This specially-priced 2-volume set combines the following, which are available separately: A Case-Based Approach to Pacemakers, ICDs, and Cardiac Resynchronization: Questions for Examination Review and Clinical Practice [Volume 1], and A Case-Based Approach to Pacemakers, ICDs, and Cardiac Resynchronization: Advanced Questions for Examination Review and Clinical Practice [Volume 2].

This book presents a thorough review of coronary angioscopy, ranging from instructions on its use to the latest advances. Starting with the structure and fundamental principles of angioscopy, it shows readers how to apply the image to comprehensive care of coronary-artery patients. Plentiful color photos and illustrations will enable readers to investigate and classify plaques and thrombi and to evaluate coronary stent- and drug-based therapies. The authors are leading researchers on angioscopy. This book offers the perfect guide not only for new clinicians but also for cardiologists who have already adopted this technique for medical examination and treatment. Angioscopy is a unique medical technique for visualizing the interior of blood vessels and helps physicians not only to diagnose the pathology but also to measure the effectiveness of Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or antiarteriosclerotic drugs. Furthermore, the recently developed molecular angioscopy approach allows us to observe Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxide, collagen, and macrophages, and is rapidly growing in importance.
