    For thousands of years the human heart remained the deepest of mysteries; both home to the soul and an organ too complex to touch, let alone operate on.

    Then, in the late nineteenth century, medics began going where no one had dared go before. The following decades saw the mysteries of the heart exposed, thanks to pioneering surgeons, brave patients and even sacrificial dogs.

    In 11 landmark operations, Thomas Morris tells us stories of triumph, reckless bravery, swaggering arrogance, jealousy and rivalry, and incredible ingenuity: the trail-blazing ‘blue baby’ procedure that transformed wheezing infants into pink, healthy children; the first human heart transplant, which made headline news around the globe. And yet the heart still feels sacred: just before the operation to fit one of the first artificial hearts, the patient’s wife asked the surgeon if he would still be able to love her.

    The Matter of the Heart gives us a view over the surgeon’s shoulder, showing us the heart’s inner workings and failings. It describes both a human story and a history of risk-taking that has ultimately saved millions of lives.

    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...

    Still the leading cause of death worldwide, heart disease challenges researchers, clinicians, and patients alike. Each day, thousands of patients and their doctors make decisions about coronary angioplasty and bypass surgery. In "Broken Hearts" David S. Jones sheds light on the nature and quality of those decisions. He describes the debates over what causes heart attacks and the efforts to understand such unforeseen complications of cardiac surgery as depression, mental fog, and stroke. Why do doctors and patients overestimate the effectiveness and underestimate the dangers of medical interventions, especially when doing so may lead to the overuse of medical therapies? To answer this question, Jones explores the history of cardiology and cardiac surgery in the United States and probes the ambiguities and inconsistencies in medical decision making. Based on extensive reviews of medical literature and archives, this historical perspective on medical decision making and risk highlights personal, professional, and community outcomes.

    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

    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.

    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)

    • Succeeds in making the complex interpretation of in ECG pediatric age more comprehensible
    • Features an exceptionally wide range of ECG recordings and examples
    • Provides advice on the use of ECG for pre-participation sport screenings of children, adolescents and young athletes

    About this book

                This book describes in detail the specific aspects of ECG during childhood and adolescence, pursuing an accessible, didactic and easy-to-read approach. Instructive, self-contained and intelligently written, it succeeds in making this diagnostic tool, the interpretation of which is especially complex in younger patients, more comprehensible, while also offering a sound and extensive reference guide for all those who diagnose young patients with electrocardiography. 

                Though ECG produces a relatively simple set of readings, its interpretation and diagnosis are complex. If misinterpreted, a “butterfly effect” of hidden, often neglected heart signals can lead to important and sometimes devastating consequences. Featuring an exceptionally wide range of ECG recordings and examples, the volume sheds new light on the importance of electrophysiological examinations for patients still in their developmental years and provides advice on the use of ECG in connection with recent regulations on the participation of children, adolescents and young athletes in sports.

                Thanks to the variety of scenarios described, from the most frequent to the most insidious, this work will appeal to a broad readership, from cardiologists and pediatricians to family physicians, anesthesiologists, doctors in sports medicine, students and nurses.

    Illustrated throughout with practical algorithms and photographic figures ? Includes practical chapters designed to imprint the information memorably ? Designed from the guidelines to expand knowledge to the more detailed practicalities of managing individual patients ? Uniquely based around picking strategies for patients with specific cardiovascular issues About this book This book fulfills the need for practical guidance among all professionals involved in the management of these patients, from residents and fellows of cardiology and internal medicine, surgical teams, physiotherapy professionals, critical care physicians and family medicine practitioners. The thoroughly updated content takes into account recent developments in cardiac rehabilitation, and incorporates practical advice on how to use guidelines in clinical practice. There will be one new chapter on patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy and all the others will be updated to keep up-to-date with the guidelines and current practice. Cardiac rehabilitation is of key importance to ameliorate long-term morbidity and mortality resulting from cardiac diseases and events. However, much of the current literature is dense, unwelcoming and academic in style and format. For those physicians understanding the scope of cardiac rehabilitation there is a need to distill the guidelines and various management options available to them into a concise practical manual. Up until now, all references have looked at the general options, but there is definite need to investigate the practicalities of individual patient groups. About the authors Univ. Prof. Dr. Josef Niebauer, MBA is a specialist in internal medicine, cardiology and sports medicine. He heads the Institute of preventive and rehabilitative sports medicine at the Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg and is also responsible for the Olympic Centre Salzburg-Rif.

    • Presents newly discovered mechanisms and concepts which explain the transition from hypertension to heart failure • Includes a special part regarding the diagnostic of heart failure in hypertension patients with a state of the art review on the role of advanced imaging techniques • Approaches newly developed pharmacological and invasive treatments of hypertensive heart failure About this book This book explains how hypertension affects 20-50% of the adult population in developed countries. Heart failure is the result of the hypertension's effects on the heart and it represents a growing public health problem. In this context the international scientific community is continuously struggling to develop better strategies in screening, diagnosing and treating hypertension and its deleterious effects. Thus, this field is continuously changing, with new important information being added constantly. This volume will offer both insights into the intimate mechanisms of transition from hypertension to heart failure and clinical practice advice on the prevention and treatment of heart failure in hypertensive population. The mechanisms which explain the progression from hypertension to heart failure will be also covered exhaustively by offering two chapters referring to the diagnosis of heart failure in hypertensive population and one regarding echocardiography which is the most frequently used imaging method in clinical practice. The reader will be also provided with information on cardiovascular magnetic resonance which has the unique advantage of differentiating hypertensive heart failure from other pathologies associated with increased myocardial thickness. This book is a useful tool for clinicians but also to the research community interested in heart failure and consequences of hypertension on heart who want to be up-to-date with the new developments in the field. Reviews “This book is suitable for large number of healthcare professionals in different specialties who interact with hypertensive patients in various stages of disease. … This book provides comprehensive yet clear insights into the intimate mechanisms of the transition from hypertension to heart failure and a clinical guide to prevention and treatment in this population.

    This book describes the risks facing patients with congenital heart disease who wish to become pregnant and the ways in which these patients can best be followed and treated during pregnancy. In addition, the organization of care around the delivery is discussed in detail. The first section provides clear advice on pre-pregnancy risk estimation, counseling of patients, medication use, and inheritance. The specific risks associated with congenital heart defects of differing severity are then explained, with guidance on monitoring and management. The coverage includes simple lesions such as atrial and ventricular septal defects, conditions associated with moderate risk, including tetralogy of Fallot and coarctation, and complex disease such as a Fontan or Mustard repair. The final section is devoted to delivery and considers the mode of delivery, anesthetic use, and postpartum care. Readers will find much information that is underreported in the literature, and the book goes well beyond the European Society of Cardiology guidelines, for example, by considering medical conditions not defined as high risk and addressing the organization of care thoroughly.

    The book is designed to provide a flowing description of the physiology of heat stress, the illnesses associated with heat exposure, recommendations on optimising health and performance, and an examination of Olympic sports played in potentially hot environmental conditions. In the first section the book examines how heat stress effects performance by outlining the basics of thermoregulation and how these responses impact on cardiovascular, central nervous system, and skeletal muscle function. It also outlines the pathophysiology and treatment of exertional heat illness, as well as the role of hydration status during exercise in the heat. Thereafter, countermeasures (e.g. cooling and heat acclimation) are covered and an explanation as to how they may aid in decreasing the incidence of heat illness and minimise the impairment in performance is provided. A novel and particular feature of the book is its inclusion of sport-specific chapters in which the influence of heat stress on performance and health is described, as well as strategies and policies adopted by the governing bodies in trying to offset the deleterious role of thermal strain. Given the breadth and scope of the sections, the book will be a reference guide for clinicians, practitioners, coaches, athletes, researchers, and students.

    Acute heart failure is a potentially life threatening situation where correct, rapid therapy can save lives. Information from the latest research and studies has been used to update this text to bring the latest understanding of the pathophysiology together with a practical guide to diagnosis and management using an evidenced based approach. Since the first edition of Acute Heart Failure, this research has brought to light three important issues to be integrated into a second edition. First, the so-called “vascular heart failure” has been identified as a common and decisive mechanism provoking acute heart failure due to the coupling and interaction between the heart (right and left heart) and the large vessel systems (aorta and pulmonary artery). Second, the interaction and cross-talk between heart and kidneys, the so-called ‘cardiorenal syndrome’ has been identified as another feature of acute heart failure syndromes. Third, we have new knowledge and updated points of views about the development of pulmonary hypertension in patients suffering from heart failure, the group 2 of the classification system of pulmonary hypertension. These are all covered in this second edition. This revision to a seminal text is a valuable addition to any practitioner who treats patients with acute heart failure and wants a deeper understanding of the condition.

    This book provides an easy-to-use guide, giving cardiologists and other physicians more confidence in training with and understanding cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in clinical daily practice. The case-based format promotes step-by-step learning and makes this book a helpful tool for students, residents and trainees in cardiology. An updated, comprehensive review of CMR diagnostic criteria is provided for all clinical cardiovascular applications of CMR in adult patients, from ischemic heart diseases to myocarditis, and from pericardial diseases to tumors, artifacts and incidental findings. CMR is an expanding imaging technique for cardiologists and radiologists alike. Despite several textbooks, manuals and dedicated texts, clinicians may still find it difficult to familiarize themselves with the exam and there are limited formats that provide easy access to the basic information (e.g. physics, specific applications) that are needed for training and clinical interpretation (especially case-based). By describing the basics of physics and methodology in a straightforward manner and providing meaningful clinical examples, this book will help all cardiologists dealing with cardiac imaging as well as doctors in training to quickly and accurately interpret CMR findings in their clinical practice.

    Since it was introduced less than 100 years ago, analysis of the circulatory response to exercise as a measure of cardiac function has undergone remarkable development. Most recently this approach has incorporated the burgeoning technology of the last half of the 20th century to meet the physiological and diagnostic needs of scientist and clinicians. The ease of administration, economy and abundant data that characterize exercise testing for its relative staying power as the most frequently utilized noninvasive method of cardiovascular evaluation. The basic modalities of exercise electrocardiography of treadmill and bicycle have been extended by noninvasive cardiac imaging techniques, including scintigraphy and echocardiography, that have provided new insights in myocardial function during exertion and pharmacologic stress. At the same time, traditional exercise electrocardiography has also been refined by innovations that have broadened its applications. Exercise Testing: Current Concepts and Recent Advances affords the reader a state-of-the-art presentation of the diverse and expanding methods of exercise testing and their roles in patient management. The contributors to this volume include individuals who have made seminal contributions to the field during the last several decades.

    This book is intended as a comprehensive, practically oriented reference on pulmonary hypertension within the context of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). After an introductory chapter on pathophysiology, the various types of pulmonary hypertension that may be encountered in ACHD are discussed, highlighting the specifics observed within different patient categories. The diagnostic approach is then addressed in detail, and the last section of the book is devoted to management options, from conservative approaches to interventional treatment and the concept of treat and repair. Management in specific patient subjects, such as pregnant women, Fontan patients, and Down syndrome patients with Eisenmenger syndrome, is fully discussed, and guidance is also provided on palliative care. Pulmonary arterial hypertension related to congenital heart disease (PAH-CHD), despite significant similarities in lung pathohysiology, differs significantly from other types of PAH in terms of mechanism of onset, natural history and management. Mistakes and pitfalls in the management of patients with PAH-CHD are often related to a lack of knowledge or expertise in this condition. Pulmonary Hypertension in Adult Congenital Heart Disease will be a valuable resource and learning tool for all who care for patients with ACHD, both in tertiary practice and general cardiology.
