DescriptionEmerging Concepts in Cardiology Series
Series Description: Developed by expert faculty at the Cornell Division of Cardiology, theEmerging Concepts in Cardiology series edited by Craig T. Basson and Bruce B. Lerman, provides “state of the art” reviews of each topic from a clinical perspective, with expert perspectives in current clinical research and emerging basic and traditional research issues all in a concise, attractive and well-illustrated texts.
Topics in Ischemic Heart Disease and Arrhythmias Ischemic heart disease and cardiac arrhythmic disorders are among the most commonly seen and complex problems for cardiologists. In order to provide the latest and most sophisticated treatment the cardiology clinician must have current knowledge of a vast amount of translational research in the pathophysiology of these disorders as well as be aware of recent advances and issues in pharmacogenic and interventional therapies. Topics in Ischemic Heart Disease and Arrhythmias provides expert reviews and assessment of the most recent clinical research on current trends in management. Key topics covered include the risk stratification of sudden cardiac death, the fast-evolving role of PCI; predictors of outcomes in chronic ischemic heart disease; catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation; and percutaneous treatment of valvular heart disease; and numerous others. Reviews include assessment of emerging data and indications of likely key advances with significant impact on clinical practice in the near future. This volume is a must-have for every cardiologist needing to be fully current on recent advances in ischemic heart disease and arrhythmic disorders.
