    Înainte de a învăța electrocardiogramă trebuie bine înțeles ce așteptăm de la ea; de cele mai multe ori electrocardiograma nu este diagnosticul ci o treaptă spre diagnostic, dar o treaptă ușor de pășit dacă știi să calci. Există evident excepții în ambele sensuri: uneori electrocardiograma este diagnosticul (preexcitația, aritmia etc.), iar alteori nu te ajută cu nimic (de cele mai multe ori dacă încerci să găsești în electrocardiogramă ceea ce nu poate da). Ar fi o eroare să considerați electrocardiograma normală (cel mai dificil traseu pentru studenții la examen) în această categorie; o electrocardiogramă normală spune foarte multe! Și mai rău ar fi dacă, posedând un aparat electrocardiografic cu diagnostic computerizat, v-ați baza pe diagnosticul calculatorului; am consumat în timp mai multă energie corectând diagnosticele calculatorului decât cea consumată pentru analiza “manuala” a traseului.

    Electrocardiograma este o reprezentare grafică a unui fenomen care se descrie vectorial și care pornește de la câteva axiome (datorate marelui Einthoven); majoritatea acestor axiome au fost fizic infirmate sau modificate în timp. Morala acestei constatări este că valoarea electrocardiogramei stă în comparație (fie că ne referim la traseele anterioare ale pacientului, fie ale altor pacienți cu aceeași condiție sau în lipsa lor, cu mai mică valoare, la modelul învățat despre cum trebuie să arate electrocardiograma în condiția dată). Obișnuiesc să recomand studenților mei să abordeze un traseu electrocardiografic în două etape: întâi să privească ca la un tablou și să-și facă o impresie generală, intuitivă, apoi să o uite pentru moment și să reevalueze sistematic traseul (ritmul atrial, conducerea atrioventriculară, depo- larizarea ventriculară, faza de repolarizare etc.) considerând mereu derivațiile sincrone împreună pentru a-și crea o imagine spațială. La cei pe care mi i-am apropiat și au avut răbdare cu mine (și reciproc) lucrurile au funcționat. Iar această metodologie trebuie aplicată indiferent că traseul pare simplu sau dificil. De altfel această terminologie este foarte subiectivă și ține mai mult de interpret decât de traseu. Nu o dată mi s-a cerut să prezint doar trasee „foarte interesante” (citește complicate) și am avut surpriza să constat cât de bine se descurcă unii la probleme delicate și cum se poticnesc la cele simple. Orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare.

    De la premisa că orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare, ne-am hotărât să prezentăm celor dornici de a-și schimba condiția, trasee din colecția noastră, așa cum se înregistrează ele în viața reală, mai mult sau mai puțin “perfecte”, mai mult sau mai puțin complicate. Intenția noastră este să alcătuim câteva volume separate. Acest prim volum conține un număr de electrocardiograme simple și câteva mai complicate, comentate succint. De la început trebuie să fie clar că această publicație nu se vrea, în nici un caz un manual de învățare de electrocardiograme ci doar o culegere de “exerciții pentru acasă” așa cum, demult, fiecare dintre noi o făcea la matematică. El este destinat oricui crede că intenția noastră ii folosește, fie el student, rezident, tânăr sau experimentat medic...

    Monografia "Repercusiuni miocardice si coronariene in boli cronice " constituie o sinteza de peste 50 de ani desfasurata de prof. Dr. Nicolae Balta, membru al Academiei de Stiinte Medicale, distins cercetator din cadrul fostului Institut de Fiziologie Normala si Patologica "Daniel Danielopolu" al Academiei Romane.

     Lucrarea este o edificatoare sursa de documentare din domenul implicarii bolii cronice in patologia miocardo-coronariana, concept ce are la baza interdependenta in conditii fiziologice si patologiceale ale  functiilor miocardice si dinamica circulatiei coronare, componente ale aparatului cardiovascular care nu pot functiona bine decat impreuna. Este conceptul miocardo-coronarian cu valoare euristica ce poate contribui la estimarea si evaluarea unor aspecte importante intr-un domeniu de importanta covarsitoare in privinta cunoasterii si aprofundarii cadrului nosologic si a interrelatiilor morfofunctionale miocardice si coronariene in bolile cronice.

     Conceptul miocardo-coronarian reflecta just realitatea in domeniul enuntat conferind medicului capacitatea unei atitudini de ansamblu comprehensiv in aprofundarea si evaluarea diagnosticului de studiu evolutiv, a conditiei terapeutice si precizarea prognosticului bolilor cronice, domeniu de mare insemnatate al medicinii interne contemporane, care preocupa si alerteaza lumea medicala mondiala, socio-economica si politica. Conceptul miocardo-coronarian mai este relevant si ilustrativ pentru analiza medicinii omului sanatos, activ, educat si demn in desfasurarea activitatii sale.

     Prezentarea celor 14 capitole este realizata in baza unei metodologii elaborate conform conceptului miocardo-coronarian, care, reprezinta metode de studiu si de cercetare a mecanismelor de producere a fenomenelor patologice miocardice si coronariene in cursul evolutiei bolilor cronice. Acaeasta modalitate de prezentare confera lucrarii un caracter unitar al legaturilor dintre patologia miocardo-coronariana si bolile cronice care au incidenta de crestere rapida in acest secol.

    Aparent, consecinta a atator progrese majore in diagnosticul bolilor cardiovasculare, electrocardiografia clasica tinde sa devina cenusareasa explorarilor cardiovasculare. in realitate nimic nu este mai fals pentru ca, in profida progreselor stiintifice si tehnice exploivize, electrocardiografia clinica isi pastreaza in continuare intreaga valoare. Electrocardiografia ramane metoda de selectie si de neinlocuit pentru o categorie tot mai vasta si mai periculoasa de suferinte cardiace-tulburarile de ritm. Actualmente, cand prin medicatie sofisticata, manopere interventionale sau interventii chirurgicale de anvergura se reuseste prezervarea functiei de pompa a inimii pentru o perioada indelungata, indiferent de suferinta cardiaca initiala, tot mai frecvent decesul bolnavilor este conditionat de aparitia tulburarilor de ritm fatale, de regula precedate de alte tulburari de ritm care pot fi diagnosticate prin electrocardiografie. Electrocardiografia are rol in diagnosticul de sindrom(hipertrofii, blocuri de ramura, etc) sau ca element de diagnostic adjuvant(intoxicatii medicamentoase, etc).

    Urgentele cardiovasculare continua sa detina primul loc ca incidenta, severitate si risc de deces. Frecvent, rapiditatea interventiei terapeutice este aceea care decide viata sau moartea bolnavilor. De aceea, se impune cunoasterea si aplicarea, cel putin intr-o prima etapa, a unor algoritmi simpli de diagnostic si tratament care sa ofere bolnavilor sansa de a supravietui. Este ceea ce incearca sa ofere Urgente cardiovasculare in camera de garda. Desigur, dupa aplicarea primelor masuri de diagnostic si tratament, medicul va avea timp sa consulte si sa recurga la toate manoperele si terapiile recomandate in ghiduri sau in tratate de specialitate.

    Hipertensiunea pulmonară – subiect de carte – iată ce aduce nou acest Congres de Cardiologie.

      Hipertensiunea pulmonară a ajuns un subiect modern, mai ales acum în lumina noilor tratamente active.

      Este vorba de:

    - medicaţia ,,la zi” (prostacicline şi analogii prostaciclinelor; anatagonişti ai receptorilor endotelinei - bosentan, macitentan; inhibitori ai fosfodiesterazei – sildenafil, riociguat şi, de ce nu, blocanţii de calciu...),

    - combinaţiile medicamentoase,

    - procedurile intervenţionale şi chirurgicale (transplantul bipulmonar) care ar putea salva viaţa acestor bolnavi.

     

    Cum se prezintă în Clinică o istorie de hipertensiune pulmonară?

      Este ceva ce o diferenţiază concret de alte cazuri?

      Da, sunt lucruri care îi dau un aer personal, o fac să fie asemenea prezenţei materne – când o vezi să-i spui cu certitudine, cu toată încrederea ,,ea este a mea mămică” ca şi Nichita Stănescu…

     

    ,,Mânjii toţi au zis de iepe,

                   Firul cepii a zis de cepe,

                   Nucii toţi au zis de nucă,

                      Cucii toţi au zis de cucă,

                   Toţi pisoii de pisică,

                   Iară eu, de-a mea mămică! ”

     

    Cine a contribuit la ,,rezolvarea” acestor cazuri?

    O seamă de doctori din toată ţara; i-am adunat (fiindu-mi mai aproape) pe cei din Bucureşti:

    - profesorul Miron Bogdan, preşedintele programului de Hipertensiune Pulmonară al Ministerului Sănătăţii,

    - profesorul I. M. Coman, coordonator al programului HTP în ,,IUBCV C.C. Iliescu” şi preşedintele Fundaţiei adulţilor cu boli cardiace congenitale

    - doamna doctor Ioana Ghiorghiu care a fost responsabilă de acest program în Clinica de Cardiologie III, ca să-l predea apoi

    - doamnei doctor Roxana Enache – care cu perseverenţă şi îndrăzneală a adunat în jurul său doctorii interesaţi de această patologie.

     

    Există istorii clinice surprinzătoare?

    Da, o mulţime: cazuri familiale; hipertensiunea portopulmonară; ventricul stâng unic necorectat; dextrocardie, sindrom Eisenmenger, prolaps de valvă mitrală şi tricuspidă; histiocitoză cu celule Langerhans; obezitate şi sindrom de apnee în somn; hipertensiuni tromboembolice operabile sau nu; scleroză sistemică; hipertensiune pulmonară multifactorială (are chirurgul vreun rol?); diagnostic de hipertensiune pulmonară aparent ferm, dar infirmat...

     

    În plus – cartea are ataşat un CD care conţine întrebările şi răspunsurile ,,cheie” şi unele imagini interpretabile doar în mişcare.

     

    Merită să cumpăraţi această carte?

    Sigur! Veţi găsi lucruri cu adevărat noi despre cauzele şi modul de rezolvare – cel puţin parţial – al hipertensiunii pulmonare...

    Ce am făcut noi?

         Am renunțat la unele capitole (cum ar fi „alegerea metodei de evaluare”); am adăugat capitole noi (de pildă „adaptarea cordului la efortul fizic”, „cardio-oncologia”); am ameliorat unele fragmente prin schimbarea autorilor (de exemplu „tomografia computerizată” scrisă de prof. dr. Ioana Lupescu, „rezonanța magnetică nucleară” de dr. Răzvan Capșa), am îmbogățit unele capitole (de pildă „regurgitarea aortică” scrisă de dr. Roxana Enache, acesta fiind titlul doctoratului său, „evaluarea riscului perioperator în chirurgia non-cardiacă și cardiacă” scrisă de noul intervenționist dr. Lucian Predescu).

    Ce am adus nou?

         Am îmbogățit unele capitole, schimbându-le aspectul: am înlocuit, de exemplu, prezentarea de caz Marfan cu altele noi, fistulele cutanate și coronariene, la „evaluarea clinică a bolilor cardiovasculare”; am ameliorat capitolele (adăugând, de pildă, „ecografia de stres” la „ecocardiografie”; am adus la zi capitolele vechi, adăugându-le noile clasificări (la „cardiomiopatii”) sau noile indicații ale ghidurilor ESC (la capitolul „tromboembolismul pulmonar”); am schimbat aproape totul – în mod special prezentările de caz (la hipertensiunea pulmonară, bolile cardiace congenitale, pericardite).

    Ce frapează acum?

         Aerul nou al cărții; plăcerea de a scrie oriunde a autorilor (capitolul de „prevenție” s-a scris în străinătate) și minuțiozitatea extremă a descrierilor (vezi insuficiența cardiacă) și expunerea excepționalei experiențe a medicilor (vezi „afectarea cardiacă în alte condiții patologice”).

         Astfel, putem spune că am preluat de la maeștrii noștri – prof. dr. C. C. Iliescu, prof. dr. Costin Carp, prof. dr. Eduard Apetrei – tot ceea ce au realizat; am „cules” de la scriitorii care au publicat în Editura Academiei Române claritatea stilului și am încercat să realizăm o carte foarte bună.

    Ce spun autorii?

    • O experiență nouă, o bucurie de a transmite ceea ce am învățat noilor generații alegând cu parcimonie ceea ce este de scris pe hârtie. (Prof. dr. Bogdan Alexandru Popescu)

    • Am scris cu deosebită conștiinciozitate tot ce mi s-a părut interesant, încercând să „prind” publicul în nesfârșitele contradicții ale insuficienței cardiace și bolilor cardiace congenitale. (Prof. dr. Ioan Mircea Coman)

    • Mi-am ales cu grijă temele pentru a ilustra cât mai convingător ce este nou printre factorii de risc, insuficiența cardiacă, ischemia mezenterică. Mi-am ridicat sus ștacheta și am încercat s-o depășesc. (Conf. dr. Ruxandra Jurcuț)

    • Am încercat să ies din tipare, să fac atrăgătoare prezentările ECG și de HTA prin exemple deosebite și să adaug un nou „farmec” tromboembolismului pulmonar... (Dr. Carmen Beladan)

    • Am scris cu atenție, reluând nu odată textul, încercând să fac cât mai clare valvulopatiile, cu nenumăratele lor nuanțe. (Dr. Andreea Călin)

    • O experiență cu adevărat nouă. Am încercat împreună cu colegii mei de echipă și chirurgul șef al clinicii de chirurgie să descriu în amănunt bolile aortei și moartea subită și resuscitarea cardiacă cu toate datele sale noi. (Conf. dr. Ovidiu Chioncel)

    • Mi-am dorit să limpezesc, să aduc la zi tot ceea ce se știe acum despre angina stabilă, inclusiv despre noile anticoagulante, și să ilustrez cât mai atrăgător tot ceea ce este nou. (Dr. Adrian Mereuță)

    • Nu este numai ce s-a scris (pot zice că am muncit din greu la sindroamele coronariene acute cu supradenivelare de ST), ci și modul în care s-a lucrat, nesfârșita grijă pentru fiecare amănunt, pentru fiecare cuvânt. (Dr. Cosmin Călin)

    Păreri ale cititorilor

       • Printr-un efort colectiv deosebit, gestionat cu deplină competență de editor, a rezultat o lucrare remarcabilă, care va servi ca o „carte de bază” pentru generațiile viitoare de cardiologi. (Prof. dr. Tiberiu Nanea)

    Description:

    There has been an exponential increase in the amount of information available on the pathophysiology and management of heart diseases. Meanwhile, understanding of the underlying pathology and physiology has deepened and broadened with new methodologies to monitor cardiac structure and function. These developments have led to an overwhelming amount of information available to students, trainees, and physicians. What is in short supply is a comprehensive yet concise and clear description of the important cardiac conditions and disorders, an approach to their management, and an easily consulted and well-indexed summary to be used at the bedside or in the clinic. This book addresses that need.

    Description:

     

    This new and comprehensively revised third edition of Practical Interventional Cardiology, led by an eminent UK Cardiologist and supported by contributing authors from around the world, discusses the different interventional procedures by context and addresses current guidelines and ongoing trials, including European experience with non-FDA approved devices. It represents an extended practical reference for the Interventional Cardiologist, Fellows in training, catheter laboratory Nursing and Technical staff as well as the non-invasive Cardiologist and General Physician. Rather than providing detailed and exhaustive reviews – a criticism of many Interventional Cardiology texts – the purpose of this book is to present practical information regarding Interventional procedures and important topics in Cardiology. An emphasis on clarity, clinical relevance and up-to-date information has been favoured as well as discussion of points of controversy so frequently overlooked."

    Summary

    Given current trends toward obesity, sedentary lifestyles, and poor diets, hypertension is increasingly becoming a disease of the young as well as the elderly, affecting about 1 billion people worldwide. Many patients, especially the younger ones, would prefer alternative treatments. While natural remedies have been used for much longer than pharmaceutical-based treatments, few Western physicians are trained in alternative treatments of hypertension. Written by a dual board-certified nephrologist and internist as well as a Harvard-trained doctor of chemistry, Integrative Treatment of Hypertension: A Clinical and Mechanistic Approach offers an alternative approach to treating hypertension, providing sound mechanisms of action and practical implementation advice.

    The author meticulously analyzes the efficacy of treatments based on data from respected medical journals. The book begins with an introduction to the subject and explains the mechanisms of blood pressure and hypertension, describes common causes of hypertension, and reviews standard medications and their side effects. The author examines alternative methods of treatment, emphasizing mechanisms of action, similarities to standard medications, and practical recommendations for employing these methods.

    Chapters cover dietary factors in treating hypertension, alternative yet common diets, the efficacy of nonconsumptive methods of treatment, and descriptions of natural supplements in treating hypertension. The book also addresses blood pressure goals and categorizes each standard and alternative method of treatment, suggesting ways of implementing an integrative approach to hypertension treatment. A useful companion to any health care provider, this book presents a unique work that fills a niche within the medical community.

    Summary

    Even though enormous advancements have been made in identifying evidence-based lifestyle strategies for hypertension prevention and management, little progress has been made in implementing these proven strategies. Nutrition, Lifestyle Factors, and Blood Pressure compiles practical, science-based information for health care providers to provide effective lifestyle interventions for blood pressure care.

    Divided into three sections, the book features:

       

    • Evidence-based blood pressure control and relevant considerations for real-life situations
    • Special considerations in blood pressure control and lifestyle modification among children and adolescents, during pregnancy, and among those with diabetes
    • Practical tools that health care providers can put into practice in particular settings

    An excellent supplement to existing resources, Nutrition, Lifestyle Factors, and Blood Pressure shortens the gap between current understanding of the science about lifestyle factors and blood pressure and the actual implementation of the science

    Description:

     

     

    Coronary stenting is the most commonly used method of myocardial revascularization, with approximately 2 million stents implanted in 2004 throughout the world. The development of drug eluting stents has resulted in very low rates of repeat intervention and will further increase the scope for percutaneous coronary intervention.
    The evidence from large randomized trials is generally accepted to be the gold standard source of information for patient care in interventional cardiology. However, it is well recognized that information from these trials is frequently insufficient to guide the wide-ranging clinical situations found in routine practice. In this context, decision-making is often based on a composite of information from multiple clinical studies, pathophysiological considerations and importantly, personal experience or 'gut-feeling'.
    This book, written by internationally recognized experts in their field, provides clear and concise recommendations regarding various challenging clinical situations facing the interventional cardiologist on a daily basis.

    The books consists of two sections. The first section deals with left ventricular (LV) wall stress, cardiac contractility, ventricular remodeling, active wall stress and systolic pressure generation, and vector cardiogram characteristics, with applications in cardiology. The second section covers ECG signal analysis for arrhythmias detection, LV pumping (intra-LV, aortic and coronary flow) characteristics, and coronary bypass surgery design, with applications in cardiology and cardiac surgery.




    This book is like an exciting train ride through the heart and into blood flows within its chamber, the coronary tree, the aorta, and finally into coronary flow and bypass grafting. The train starts from the heart’s central station and journeys through exciting places of heart wall stresses, cardiac contractility measures to characterize heart failure, and active stress generation to develop systolic heart pressure. We learn about cardiomyopathic heart remodeling and its surgical ventricular restoration, theory of ECG and vector cardiogram with medical applications, and heart rate variability signal processing to detect cardiac arrhythmias.




    In the heart chamber, we witness the amazing intricate intra-ventricular flow patterns. Then, we study pressure pulse wave propagation into the aorta, determination of pulse wave velocity and arterial elasticity as a measure of arteriosclerosis. We climb into the mountainous coronary terrain and look at the fascinating scenery of coronary flows and myocardial perfusion that governs cardiac contractility. Finally, we arrive at coronary bypass grafting and witness the new sequential anastomosis design for enhanced patency.

    Description:

     

    This book provides new perspectives on the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Chapters cover atherosclerosis risk factors, the effect of growth and aging on vascular architecture, and the crucial role the microvasculature plays in atherosclerosis development. Microvascular dysfunction would explain why the well-known risk factors actually put individuals at higher risk. This pathomechanism would also hold true not only for obstructive atheroma formation but also for aneurysmal dilatation as well as for aortic and peripheral artery dissection. When seen through this lens, novel preventive and therapeutic opportunities can be envisioned. Atherosclerosis Pathogenesis and Microvascular Dysfunction proposes a single unifying mechanism of atherosclerosis development and describes potential preventative and therapeutic avenues based on this concept. It therefore represents a timely and valuable resource for internal medicine, cardiology, angiology cardiovascular surgeons, pathology clinicians, researchers, trainees, and students.
