Summary

Since the first edition of this book was published in 2004, the management of congenital heart disease has continued to evolve at a rapid pace. Not only have new operations been developed and expanded, such as the intra/extracardiac conduit Fontan and the double root translocation for corrected transposition, but in addition, diagnostic methods—particularly cardiac CT and MRI—have been dramatically transformed.

Understanding of the genetic basis of congenital heart disease and the embryology of cardiac development has progressed even more rapidly. What has not changed is that optimal outcomes for children and adults with congenital heart disease can only be achieved by a collaborative team effort. The team includes not only congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians.

This second edition of Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Disease describes in detail the contemporary practice of Richard A. Jonas and the cardiac team at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The book once again includes numerous beautiful illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. In addition, the companion VitalSource ebook contains more than 50 operative videos that have been edited and narrated to highlight the key steps in complex surgical procedures.

The book incorporates an evidence-based approach, supported throughout by numerous scientific citations, to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits, and potential complications.

    Features
    • Includes information from basic research to clinical application on myocardial tissue engineering
    • Covers principles of tissue engineering technologies
    • Demonstrates recent advances in myocardial tissue engineering, especially beating heart tissue/organ fabrication
    Summary

    Regenerative therapy has rapidly developed as one of the most promising treatments for patients suffering from severe heart failure. Autologous bone marrow-derived cells and cardiac stem cells have been clinically applied for cell injection therapy for heart failure. As a next-generation therapy, tissue-engineered myocardial-patch transplantation has also been started clinically. As further advanced therapy, several researchers have started to fabricate three-dimensional beating myocardial tissues. One of the main problems in myocardial tissue engineering is neovascularization within the tissues during scale-up. Several innovative technologies have been developed to overcome the vascularization problem.

     

    This book broadly summarizes myocardial tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, which consists of myocardial cell sources, cell therapy for damaged hearts, and tissue engineering technologies for fabricating beating hearts. With respect to myocardial cell source, it focuses on cardiac cells differentiated from embryonic stem and induced pluripotent stem cells. It describes the remarkable results obtained in the past and the present to control neovascularization and presents the future challenges in myocardial tissue engineering research.

    Summary

    Despite 40 years of aggressive pharmaceutical and surgical interventions, coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the number one killer of women and men in Western civilization. When it comes to CAD, prevention is easier than cure, and if CAD does present itself, a combination of conventional and alternative methodologies can truly make a difference in people’s lives. Nutritional and Integrative Strategies in Cardiovascular Medicine provides scientific and clinical insight from leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine who explore an integrative approach to treating and curing cardiovascular diseases through conventional and non-allopathic methodologies.

    Nutritional interventions with both appropriate noninflammatory diets and targeted nutraceutical supports are simple and basic strategies to prevent as well as help manage CAD and congestive heart failure (CHF). This evidence-based book describes how to integrate nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes, and medications for improved outcomes in hypertension, lipids, diabetes, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, and much more. Topics include:

       

    • Nutrigenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics in heart disease
    • The risks and side effects of statin drugs
    • The value of omega-3s and other fats
    • Naturopathic approaches
    • Gender-specific medicine
    • Nutrient-drug interactions in cardiovascular medicine
    •  

    Nutritional medicine and understanding nutrigenomics for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease will become the recommended practice of medicine in the very near future. This book is designed to help established health professionals as well as students preparing for degrees in healthcare.

    Summary

    Cardiac transplantation has had a major impact on the quality of life and longevity of an ever-increasing number of patients. This benefit is significantly eroded by the development of an accelerated form of coronary arterial disease which shows some, but not all, of the characteristics of native coronary artery disease, and itself is one of the major indications for transplantation.

    If cardiac transplantation is to realize its potential, it is essential to prevent transplant-related coronary disease. This can only be done by thorough understanding of the basic mechanisms involved. This could help in the fight against native atherosclerosis, which has a major impact on the community and in preventing vascular damage after other solid organ transplantation. To date, there is no agreement or good guidelines about the management of chronic rejection. Transplant-associated coronary disease is a multifactorial disease contributed by genetic factors in the donor and recipients. It is also linked to events occurring during brain death, harvesting and implantation, and most importantly, events after transplantation. The latter events can be conveniently divided into antigen-dependent and antigen-independent with immunological causes playing a part in both.

    Recent work has resulted in major and significant accumulation of knowledge in this field, particularly in the molecular mechanisms and to some extent, management, of the disease. This knowledge is extensively and methodically reviewed in this volume by a group of experts in the field.

      Summary

      The establishment of precise and reliable biomarker tests for the early stages of cardiovascular disease is of great importance and can be the cornerstone in the prevention of future cardiovascular disease (CVD). Furthermore, some biomarkers may provide important information concerning the pathogenesis of CVD or appear to be useful in risk stratification, in CVD diagnosis, or in monitoring therapy; many others may be risk factors themselves, representing therefore potential targets of therapy. The ideal biomarker should have the following characteristics: highly sensitive, specific, reliable, accessible, standardized, dependable, cost effective, and easily interpretable by clinicians.

      The present book focuses on the presentation and evaluation of the most promising classical and novel biochemical markers used in CVD (coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, peripheral arterial disease). The underlying pathophysiological characteristics of each biomarker, as well as potential clinical implications in daily practice are reviewed in this book.

        Summary

        Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer in North America and around the world. The staggering medical costs involved in treating patients suffering from this disease demand an alternative approach to prevent or minimize its development. In Functional Foods and Cardiovascular Disease, international researchers reveal essential up-to-date information on the role that functional foods and nutraceuticals play in preventing the development of heart disease.

         

        Highlighting the physiological benefits of a host of functional foods, the book examines:

         

           

        • The pathogenesis of coronary artery disease
        • Genetic methods for enhancing bioactives in foods and new techniques for extracting bioactive components for developing functional foods
        • Clinical and experimental evidence of the cardiovascular benefits of fish oils and plant oils, particularly flaxseed oil
        • The importance of folic acid in homocysteine metabolism and its impact on cardiovascular disease
        • Clinical and experimental evidence for the cardiovascular benefits of plant sterols
        • The beneficial effects of , garlic products, eggs, fiber, cocoa and chocolate, and coffee and tea on cardiovascular health
        •  

         

        While there have been great improvements in treating coronary heart disease through surgery and medications, prevention through diet and exercise should remain an essential priority in maintaining the health of the aging population. Nutritionists, food scientists, and those working in the health industry will find that this book enhances their understanding of the potential role of functional foods in combating cardiovascular disease before more aggressive treatment is needed.

        Summary

        Open a Window into the Autonomic Nervous System

        Quantifying the amount of autonomic nervous system activity in an individual patient can be extremely important, because it provides a gauge of disease severity in a large number of diseases. Heart rate variability (HRV) calculated from both short-term and longer-term electrocardiograms is an ideal window into such autonomic activity for two reasons: one, heart rate is sensitive to autonomic activity in the entire body, and two, recording electrocardiograms is inexpensive and non-invasive unlike other techniques currently available for autonomic assessment, such as microneurography and metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scanning. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Signal Analysis: Clinical Applications provides a comprehensive review of three major aspects of HRV: mechanism, technique, and clinical applications.

        Learn Techniques for HRV Signal Analysis

        Edited by an engineer, a cardiologist, and a neurologist, and featuring contributions by widely published international researchers, this interdisciplinary book begins by reviewing the many signal processing techniques developed to extract autonomic activity information embedded in heart-rate records. The classical time and frequency domain measures, baroreceptor sensitivity, and newer non-linear measures of HRV are described with a fair amount of mathematical detail with the biomedical engineer and mathematically oriented physician in mind. The book also covers two recent HRV methods, heart-rate turbulence and phase-rectified signal averaging.

        Use of HRV in Clinical Care

        The large clinical section is a must-read for clinicians and engineers wishing to get an insight into how HRV is applied in medicine. Nineteen chapters altogether are devoted to uses of HRV in:

        • Monitoring—for example to predict potential complications in pregnancies, fetal distress, and in neonatal critical care
        • Acute care—for gauging the depth of anesthesia during surgery and predicting change in patient status in the intensive care unit
        • Chronic disorders—for assessing the severity of congestive heart failure, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and depression
        Bringing together the latest research, this comprehensive reference demonstrates the utility and potential of HRV signal analysis in both the clinic and physiology laboratory.

        Summary

        Given current trends toward obesity, sedentary lifestyles, and poor diets, hypertension is increasingly becoming a disease of the young as well as the elderly, affecting about 1 billion people worldwide. Many patients, especially the younger ones, would prefer alternative treatments. While natural remedies have been used for much longer than pharmaceutical-based treatments, few Western physicians are trained in alternative treatments of hypertension. Written by a dual board-certified nephrologist and internist as well as a Harvard-trained doctor of chemistry,Integrative Treatment of Hypertension: A Clinical and Mechanistic Approachoffers an alternative approach to treating hypertension, providing sound mechanisms of action and practical implementation advice.

        The author meticulously analyzes the efficacy of treatments based on data from respected medical journals. The book begins with an introduction to the subject and explains the mechanisms of blood pressure and hypertension, describes common causes of hypertension, and reviews standard medications and their side effects. The author examines alternative methods of treatment, emphasizing mechanisms of action, similarities to standard medications, and practical recommendations for employing these methods.

        Chapters cover dietary factors in treating hypertension, alternative yet common diets, the efficacy of nonconsumptive methods of treatment, and descriptions of natural supplements in treating hypertension. The book also addresses blood pressure goals and categorizes each standard and alternative method of treatment, suggesting ways of implementing an integrative approach to hypertension treatment. A useful companion to any health care provider, this book presents a unique work that fills a niche within the medical community.
