Patologia cardiovascolare

Clinical Echocardiography and Other Imaging Techniques in Cardiomyopathies

Bruno Pinamonti, Gianfranco Sinagra

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 294

This book describes the role of basic and advanced imaging techniques in the diagnosis of different types of cardiomyopathy, including dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and infiltrative/storage cardiomyopathies. While the main focus is on echocardiography, the applications of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography are also described. Throughout, a clinically oriented approach is employed: detailed attention is paid to differential diagnosis and numerous high-quality images depict the main features of the various types of cardiomyopathy. Consideration is also given to the genetics of cardiomyopathies, with analysis of genotype-phenotype relationships. Finally, the potential value of imaging in prognostic assessment and in guiding treatment is described.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in the Patient on Oral Anticoagulation

Andrea Rubboli, Eric Eeckhout
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 96

The management of patients committed to long-term oral anticoagulation, such as those with atrial fibrillation at moderate to high risk of stroke, mechanical heart valves, and previous arterial/venous thromboembolism, who are submitted to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has become an issue of increasing importance in the last years. Guidelines/expert consensus papers addressing the complex management of this population, which is estimated to represent about 5 to 10% of all patients referred for PCI, have been recently made available. As underlined in the most recent guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation issued by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) however, "guidelines are no substitutes for textbooks". This pocketbook addresses the key management points and summarises the properties of the stents and the clinical pharmacology of the antithrombotic agents to be used in these patients. It will be a useful guide for clinical and interventional cardiologists, internists, surgeons, primary care doctors, and other physicians who care for these patients.

Clinical Applications of Cardiac CT

a cura di F. Cademartiri, G. Casolo

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 400

During the past few years, cardiac CT (CCT) has acquired an increasingly important role as a noninvasive imaging method that allows assessment of coronary heart disease from both the morphological and the functional standpoint. It is quickly becoming a primary clinical tool for the evaluation and follow-up of various conditions related to the heart and great vessels and is providing valuable insights into the natural history of atherosclerosis. The rapid advances in CCT technology, the advent of new clinical applications, and the acquisition of data on prognostic value are just some of the reasons for the publication of this new edition of Clinical Applications of Cardiac CT, little more than 3 years after the first edition appeared. The text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice, and the structure and layout of the educational content have also been improved. The imaging targets, semeiology, technique, and clinical applications of CCT are all covered in detail, and in addition relevant information is provided on epidemiology, clinical assessment, and the role of other diagnostic modalities. This book will prove an invaluable tool for radiologists and cardiologists alike.
