Pathophysiology of Cardiovascular Disease

This volume is a compendium of different approaches to understanding cardiovascular disease and identifying the proteins, pathways and processes that impact it.

Pathophysiology of Cardiovascular Disease has been divided into four sections that focus on heart dysfunction and its associated characteristics (hypertrophy, cardiomyopathy and failure); vascular dysfunction and disease; ischemic heart disease; and novel therapeutic interventions. This volume is a compendium of different approaches to understanding cardiovascular disease and identifying the proteins, pathways and processes that impact it.

It is indeed ironical that in the absence of a complete knowledge of Pathophysiology, clinical cardiologists are left with no choice but to do the best they can to help the patient with the armamentarium of drugs at their disposal. But nothing could be further from truth than to treat the diagnosed end point of a disease process without a full understanding of its patho physiology. This point was eloquently made by Dr. Arnold Katz in his Presidential Address (Chapter 1) at the 8th Annual Meeting of the American Section of the International Society for Heart Research held in Winnipeg, Canada, July 8-11, 1986. This volume represents a part of the scientific proceedings of this Meeting. From a reading of this treatise it will become evident that discoveries of newer scientific facts as well as a better understanding of pathophysiology are continuously influencing/ improving our therapeutic approaches in modern medicine. In this book, latest biochemical, physiological and pharmacological findings on different experimental models such as Myocaridal hypertrophy, Hypertension and heart failure, Diabetes, Cardio myopathies and Cardiac function in shock are described by internationally recognised experts. Hopefully information presented here will provide another building block to the edifice of Science of Cardiology which we all are trying to create.

This comprehensively covers everything from pathophysiology to the evaluation of patients presenting with heart failure to medical management, device therapy, heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support, and include relevant cardiac imaging studies such as echocardiograms and magnetic resonance imaging studies which could be seen in their entirety as well as pathology slides, hemodynamic tracings and videos of cardiac surgery such as heart transplants and ventricular assist device implantation. Finally, the book would have videos of patients with heart failure, heart transplants or ventricular assist devices, describing their clinical presentation and experiences. It is structured so that it can be used as a guide by physicians studying for the general Cardiology or Advanced Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantations Boards.

Congestive Heart Failure

This book is the first to approach the field of congestive heart failure as a true subspecialty of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.

This book is the first to approach the field of congestive heart failure as a true subspecialty of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. The text discusses the entire field of congestive heart failure: the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms; the underlying diseases; the effects of heart failure on the remainder of circulation; the mechanisms and results of pharmacologic therapy; the multiple surgical and multidisciplinary approaches to end-stage heart disease; and the ultimate prognosis of congestive heart failure in all of the areas of heart failure management. Thus, this text uniquely puts into perspective all of the features of congestive heart failure and its management for the cardiologist, cardiovascular surgeon, and general internist.
