Abstract:

echoBook

The Complete Guide to Echocardiography is a must-have tool for cardiologists and cardiology trainees preparing for their boards. Accompanied by a CD study tool, this text offers a case-based, problem-oriented and image driven program that will ensure mastery of the essential visual elements of echocardiography in combination with a sophisticated understanding of anatomy, hemodynamics, pathophysiology and disease recognition. Focused teaching principles are combined with specific still and video clip examples on a topic by topic basis, and include a series of questions modeled after those found on the Echo Board Certification Exam. 

The Complete Guide to Echocardiography is an essential resource for trainees and practitioners.

Abstract:

management-of-acute-coronary-syndromes book

Acute Coronary Syndrome covers the spectrum of clinical conditions ranging from unstable angina to non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and ST elevation myocardial infarction. These life-threatening disorders are a major cause of emergency medical care, hospitalization and mortality. Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes is designed to provide busy clinicians with a comprehensive guide to the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of these syndromes. It encompasses the latest technologies, including the use of biomarkers and non-invasive imaging procedures.

For each condition, the reader is taken through all of the therapeutic options available; in each case the indications and contraindications are evaluated in the light of the latest clinical trials. Potential complications are dealt with in a similar fashion, permitting the reader to anticipate and manage problems as they arise. The authors also present evidence-based recommendations for long-term care of at-risk patients, encompassing pharmacologic therapies and lifestyle management.

The book concludes with a comprehensive collection of appendices that include treatment algorithms, risk scores and a summary of the latest management guidelines.

Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes is the most up to date and comprehensive evidence-based guide to managing acute coronary syndromes, in a compact and usable format.  It will be of interest to busy specialist physicians in cardiovascular medicine, cardiac and vascular surgery, and critical care, as well as primary care physicians and hospitalists who care for patients with these syndromes.

Atlas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance

Abstract:

atlasBook

The Atlas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a comprehensive, four-color visual compendium of CMR images, photomicrographs, anatomic illustrations, tables, and charts paired with extensive legends and explanations drawn from the latest peer-reviewed literature. In addition to providing historical perspective and current direction for CMR, this atlas focuses on research involving coronary artery diseases and anomalies, congestive heart failure, atherosclerotic plaques, and asymptomatic disease. The Atlas details imaging techniques, including preparation, acquisition, and processing, for study of the great vessels and carotids, the peripheral vasculature, and the coronary and pulmonary veins. Also included are discussions of the role of CMR in the emergency department and in clinical cardiology and private cardiology practices. This book is an unsurpassable professional reference.
