This book is a case - based approach to some of the common clinical problems and case scenarios in Cardiology encountered by clinicians on a day to day basis.
It is a multi author work, with contributions from some of the most renowned clinicians and academicians in the field of Cardiology.
Each chapter begins with a case scenario, and goes on the discuss the diagnostic approach, management, and key learnings for the clinicians faced with a similar case.
The most contemporary evidence is reviewed , and practical algorithms suggested wherever appropriate.
We have endeavored to provide a balanced coverage of the vast field of Cardiology, with topics including ischemic heart disease, general Cardiology, congenital, valvular and structural heart disease and arrhythmias.
The selected cases cover exciting new interventional techniques like TAVR, percutaneous pulmonary valve replacement, and LA appendage closure replacement, as well as recent developments in coronary physiology, robotics in intervention, imaging modalities like IVUS and OCT, cardiac MRI and advanced echocardiographic techniques like strain rate imaging.
A separate section on Arrhythmias deals with some common, yet therapeutically challenging, rhythm disorders seen in clinical practice. We hope that this book will be of interest to the busy clinician as well as to fellows and students in Cardiology and Internal Medicine.
