Description

This volume covers the diagnostic and treatment options available in the management of electrical diseases. It details clinical and basic aspects of the physiology and pathophysiology in conjunction with new clinical findings and research discoveries.

Electrical Disease of the Heart, 2nd Edition, volume 2, covers the diagnostic and treatment options available in the management of electrical diseases and with its companion volume provides the latest developments in the field of experimental and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, genetics, pharmacology and interventional therapies of various clinical arrhythmogenic entities. This book is highly relevant to a broad audience, ranging from medical and graduate students, to clinicians and scientists.


From the reviews of the second edition:

This second edition incorporates up-to-date research that continues to expand this rapidly growing field. Each chapter provides established data from historic studies and current research by experts from around the world. designed for a broad audience from medical students to clinicians and scientists . This is a useful resource for anyone interested in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. Multiple authors offer different approaches and styles of providing information, providing readers with a comprehensive understanding of the various topics. (Daniel Masvidal, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2013)

Texte du rabat

The past two decades have witnessed an explosion of knowledge and radical changes in our understanding of the molecular, ionic, genetic, and pharmacologic basis of electrical diseases of the heart. Electrical diseases of the heart are heritable arrhythmogenic clinical entities that may share common clinical and genetic features, yet may be distinctly different in their genesis, prognosis, and management. Notably, both congenital and acquired electrical diseases of the heart are receiving increased recognition as a result of important advances in genetic analysis.

In this second edition of Electrical Diseases of the Heart, the Editors' goal has been to embrace and highlight the explosion of knowledge that our field has witnessed since the publication of the first edition. The approach continues to be one of bridging basic and clinical science in an attempt to advance meaningfully our understanding of heart disease and identify the knowledge gaps that exist. This volume covers the diagnostic and treatment options available in the management of electrical diseases and with its companion volume provides the latest developments in the field of experimental and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, genetics, pharmacology and interventional therapies of various clinical arrhythmogenic entities.

Residents, fellows and physicians in cardiology and electrophysiology will gain valuable insight into the latest developments in the field of cardiac electrophysiology and clinical electrocardiology by reading this book, including expert review of the genetic and epidemiologic considerations, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities of the newly discovered clinical syndromes and electrocardiographic phenomena, and their correlation with the most recent advances in the basic science.
