Transvenous Lead Extraction

From Simple Traction to Internal Transjugular Approach

a cura di M. G. Bongiorni

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 180

In the last years, indications for defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy have expanded enormously; for this reason, and also due to the extension of human life length, the number of patients with implanted cardiac devices have steadily increased. The leads implanted for the functioning of these devices, however, have a limited duration in time and more and more their extraction will be a frequent issue in clinical practice, in order to treat short- and long-term complications, such as infections and failures. Aim of this book is to provide readers with a state-of-the-art on lead extraction techniques. The chapters deal with leads characteristics, indications to lead removal, patient preparation, tools and techniques for extraction, and prevention and management of complications. In addition, a series of tips and tricks on how to treat some particular conditions (tight cost-clavicular space, fractured leads, ICD leads, dangered leads...etc.), are given. A new extracting technique, according to which the extraction is performed through the internal jugular vein is described; several examples are included and many figures provide a thorough depiction of this innovative procedure. The volume will be an excellent resource for all those involved in the management of cardiac patients: cardiologists, arrhythmologists, cardiac surgeons, GPs, pediatricians, and post-graduate students in these disciplines.

Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease

Gianluca Iacobellis

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 288

The number of individuals who are obese or overweight has dramatically increased over recent years and is now becoming epidemic.These individuals are more likely to suffer cardiovascular diseases and therefore physicians, specialists and trainees increasingly need to deal with these issues on the ward and in clinic. As a result, the need for appropriate knowledge of up-to-date clinical management of obesity and its associated cardiovascular problems is essential for any practising physician. Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease is a readily assimilated pocket guide to obesity and cardiovascular disease. It is intended to be used 'on-the-go' and is compact enough to be on hand whilst in consultation with patients. It provides a clear and succinct overview of contemporary clinical management of cardiovascular risk stratification, and fully covers the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular in obese patients and individuals with increased visceral adiposity, translating up-to-date clinical research findings into clinical practice. Particular emphasis is placed on recent updates in practical care in obesity and cardiovascular disease, such as new diagnostic techniques and novel pharmacological and surgical approaches, as well as cardiac visceral fat, ethnic differences in adiposity-related cardiovascular risk, and metabolically healthy, but obese subjects. Topics are presented in an easily accessible format with numerous illustrations, photographs, tables, diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms while highlight boxes summarise the main concepts discussed in each chapter.

Thyroid and Heart Failure

Giorgio Iervasi, Alessandro Pingitore

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 287

Both thyroid dysfunction and heart failure show a high prevalence in the adult population. Frequently, in clinical practice, a multidisciplinary approach is useful to optimize the management of patients with these conditions. Although there is no doubt regarding the close link between cardiovascular pathophysiology and thyroid homeostasis, our understanding of this association is far from being exhaustive. Thyroid hormone regulates the expression of cardiac-specific functional contractile and structural proteins and plays a pivotal role in modulating both diastolic and systolic function as well as peripheral vascular resistance. The close relationship between thyroid and heart dysfunction is strongly supported by recent evidence demonstrating that an altered thyroid profile is a negative prognostic predictor in patients with heart failure. The treatment of chronic heart failure, especially in advanced stages of the disease, continues to be an open and challenging field. The potential of novel thyroid hormone therapies that address the molecular biology of thyroid dysfunction and heart failure thus represents an attractive area of multidisciplinary scientific interest. This book is a readable, integrated, and highly up to date presentation of the clinical, pathophysiological, and basic science aspects of thyroid - heart failure interactions. It addresses a complex subject in an approach that targets a large audience of readers.

Lipid Disorders

Ian D. Young, Paul Nicholls

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 104

Over the past 20 years, effective treatments for lipid disorders have become available. With the high incidence of coronary artery disease in the developed world, interest in this area has greatly increased, and 10% of the UK population now qualify for lipid lowering treatment. It is therefore important that the rational use of lipid-lowering treatment is based on an understanding of the underlying metabolic problem. This comprehensive but concise guide makes basic lipid metabolism understandable to the reader without over-simplification. The often confusing classification of lipid disorders is explained clearly, and this book will appeal to cardiologists, trainees and all related healthcare professionals who are involved in prescribing lipid-lowering medications on a daily basis.

Heart Disease and Diabetes

Miles Fisher

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 160

Cardiovascular disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in people with diabetes, and the routine management of patients with diabetes now includes close attention to the methods of controlling hyperglycaemia that bring about the maximum reduction in cardiovascular events. Once patients with diabetes develop cardiovascular disease there are specific considerations on the most appropriate cardiological treatment. Staff working in coronary care units and acute stroke units need to be familiar with the investigation and treatment of diabetes. This book details the complications that diabetes presents in relation to heart disease and discusses the possible treatments that can be explored.

Diabete e malattie cardiovascolari

Francesco Panemi, Francesco Cosentino

editore: Il Pensiero Scientifico

pagine: 108

L'aumento della prevalenza del diabete mellito è ormai esponenziale e il suo impatto sulle malattie cardiovascolari risulta sempre più evidente. Il paziente affetto da diabete presenta infatti un rischio notevolmente aumentato di sviluppare eventi cardiovascolari maggiori. Ciò è dovuto alla particolare aggressività della malattia aterosclerotica a livello dei vasi, favorita dalla disfunzione endoteliale legata allo stato iperglicemico. Inoltre, tali alterazioni patologiche risultano proporzionali ai livelli di glicemia e si manifestano quindi anche nel paziente non ancora diabetico, secondo un "continuum" tra glicemia ed eventi cardiovascolari. L'opera illustra, in quest'ottica, gli aspetti fisiopatologici e clinici della malattia cardiovascolare nel paziente con diabete mellito e sindrome metabolica, fornendo un approccio trasversale alla trattazione degli argomenti, dai meccanismi fisiopatologici fino ai risultati dei più recenti trial clinici. Ne deriva una comprensione globale del fenomeno che non include soltanto l'interpretazione del dato clinico ma è frutto di un'attenta analisi dei risultati della ricerca cardiovascolare nel diabete.

La valutazione funzionale del paziente con scompenso cardiaco cronico

Alessandro Mezzani, Francesco Cacciatore
e altri

editore: SEEd

pagine: 96

Lo scompenso cardiaco cronico è una patologia che comporta un elevato consumo di risorse sanitarie e compromette la qualità di vita dei pazienti. Valutare la funzione cardiaca nel paziente che ne è affetto serve a stimare la reale entità del danno al cuore, a verificare lo stato di avanzamento della malattia e a decidere le misure riabilitative e di trattamento farmacologico. Il testo offre una panoramica sui metodi che si possono utilizzare in ambito clinico per la valutazione funzionale del paziente con scompenso cardiaco cronico. Particolare attenzione è riservata ai pazienti con disabilità avanzata che sono in aumento nella popolazione generale e non si prestano ai test di valutazione classici a causa della loro ridotta tolleranza allo sforzo.
