Valvular Heart Disease aims to give readers exposure to guideline-directed therapy and therapeutic decisions and is relevant to trainee and practising cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, and cardiac : Hardcover. Written by a highly experienced and internationally recognized group of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and researchers, Valvular Heart Disease offers insights into the widely varying hemodynamic effects and clinical course of heart valve conditions, as well as Manufacturer: Humana. Valvular Heart Disease - CRC Press Book The study of valvular heart disease has progressed rapidly over the past two decades. The understanding of etiology and natural history, the precision of noninvasive assessment, and the surgical and interventional management of valve disease have all improved dramatically. Valvular Heart Disease is now an even better source for all your questions on dysfunctions or abnormalities of the heart's four valves. In the third edition, Catherine Otto is joined by Robert Bonow and a team of expert contributors to bring you the latest developments in imaging and treatment. The full-color images and illustrations reflect the cutting-edge imaging and diagnostic modalities.
The chapter on valvular heart disease (VHD) adds new listings specific to VHD. The awarding of disability is appropriate for all patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and for other types of severe VHD associated with severe symptomatic impairment. Disease severity is determined by the echocardiogram and functional impairment by a careful history and physical examination and in some. Providing a comprehensive overview of contemporary thinking about valvular heart diseases, this book will be of great value not only to cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, but also to medical.
