  • About this book

  • Provide comprehensive information about all aspects of heart failure
  • Supplement this information with robust supplementary electronic content to enhance the contents of the print book
  • Includes information on the pathophysiology of heart failure, the clinical evaluation of patients with heart failure, the medical management of these patients, device therapy such as pacemakers and defibrillators, heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support with ventricular assist devices
This would be a heart failure book which would comprehensively cover 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. The book would be structured so that it could be used as a guide by physicians studying for the general Cardiology or Advanced Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantations Boards.
