    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).

    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...

    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."

    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

    The authoritative clinical handbook promoting excellence and best practice

    Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice is a comprehensive, practitioner-focused clinical handbook which provides internationally applicable evidence-based standards of good practice. Edited and written by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR), this book is invaluable for practitioners helping people with heart disease return to health. The text provides an overview of research findings, examines the core components of cardiac rehabilitation, and discusses how to support healthier lifestyles and reduce the risks of recurrence.

    Now in its second edition, this textbook has been fully revised to incorporate recent clinical evidence and align with current national and international guidelines. Increased emphasis is placed on an integrated approach to cardiac rehabilitation programmes, whilst six specified standards and six core components are presented to promote sustainable health outcomes.

    ·         Describes how cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes can be delivered to meet standards of good practice

    ·         Covers a broad range of topics including: promoting health behaviour change to improve lifestyle risk factors, supporting psycho-social health, managing medical risk factors, and how to develop long-term health strategies

    ·         Emphasises the importance of early programme commencement with assessment and reassessment of patient goals and outcomes, and gives examples of strategies to achieve these

    ·         Discusses the role of programme audit and certification of meeting minimum standards of practice

    ·         Looks to the future and how delivery of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes internationally will need to meet common challenges

    Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice is an indispensable resource for all health professionals involved in cardiac rehabilitation and cardiovascular disease prevention.

    Interventional cardiology refers to the catheter-based treatment of cardiovascular diseases and is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine. This updated text addresses recent advances in structural heart interventions, in particular aortic and mitral valve procedures. The advent of newer technologies presents both opportunities and challenges for the cardiologist to treat patients optimally. Interventional cardiologists are now at the forefront of peripheral and structural heart interventions.

    This new edition focuses on tailoring treatment to individual patients, taking into account specific risk factors and comorbidities, and appropriate use of devices. This second edition also provides useful tools, such as treatment algorithms, evidence tables, charts, tables, and illustrations to enhance the value of this volume as a practical reference tool. The online edition also includes several "how-to" videos.

    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.

    DESCRIPTION

    A comprehensive, accessible summary of the latest research in heart disease risk factors

    Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is a major cause of early death and disability across the world. The major markers of risk—including high blood cholesterol, smoking, and obesity—are well known, but studies show that such markers do not account for all cardiovascular risk. Written by a team of renowned experts in the field, this comprehensive and accessible book examines the evidence for emerging and novel risk factors, and their relationship with diet and nutrition.

    Fully updated throughout, Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition covers everything from the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, to genetic factors, to inflammation and much more – offering invaluable advice on reducing risk factors and preventing CVD. This new edition:

    ·         Authoritatively reports on the link between emerging aspects of diet, lifestyle and cardiovascular disease risk

    ·         Focuses on novel risk factors of CVD, including the human gut microbiome and fetal and childhood origins, and how it can be prevented

    ·         Features recommendations for interventions and future research

    ·         Includes references, commonly asked questions that summarise the take-home messages, and an online glossary

    Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition is an important book for researchers and postgraduate students in nutrition, dietetics, food science, and medicine, as well as for cardiologists and cardiovascular specialists.

    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.
