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 analysis of current clinical research and emerging basic and traditional research issues all in concise, attractive and well-illustrated texts.
Topics in Structural Heart Disease
Structural heart disease encompasses both congenital malformations of the heart, or major arteries, and heart disorders acquired in adulthood. It can be associated with diabetes, fibrosis, hypocontractility, asymptomatic valvular disease and are strongly associated with myocardial infarction and heart failure. In order to provide the latest and most sophisticated treatment cardiology clinicians must possess current knowledge of a vast amount of translational research in the pathophysiology of structural heart disease and its associated disorders as well as recent advances in diagnostic techniques and pharmacogenic and interventional therapies. Topics in Structural Heart Disease provides expert reviews and assessment of the most recent clinical research and on current trends in evaluation, diagnosis, and clinical management. Key topics covered include the CT evaluation of coronary artery disease, MRI for assessment of the post-MI heart, diabetes, non-invasive assessment of peripheral vascular disease, and cardiac causes of stroke, 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 structural heart disease and its associated disorders.
