About this book

Advancements in the treatment and prevention of Atrial Fibrillation are presented in this important new book. Atrial Fibrillation affects approximately 2.5 million individuals in the United States and is projected to affect 15 million individuals by 2050. In Atrial Fibrillation: From Bench to Bedside, the reader is provided with the latest information that is critically important in the daily care and for the potential cure of patients with Atrial Fibrillation. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of Atrial Fibrillation and was authored by internationally recognized experts in the evolving field of cardiac electrophysiology. This book is a single source that provides a multi-perspective look at and approach to Atrial Fibrillation. Because Atrial Fibrillation is so prevalent and affects all areas of medicine, the information in this book will be useful to cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, researchers, and all those in the medical field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The use of ablation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation has captured the greatest attention in journals and at national meetings, and it is a major focus of this book. … I congratulate the editors for a timely and important book. … this book may appeal primarily to the interventional clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, it would be a worthwhile investment for the surgeon, internist, or cardiologist with an interest in this rapidly evolving and important topic." (Richard L. Page, The New England Journal of Medicine, September, 2008)

"This comprehensive review of atrial fibrillation focuses on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, latest technologies, indications for treatment, and treatment. … is an excellent source of knowledge for clinicians and researchers in various specialties such as cardiology, cardiac surgery, internal medicine, and other allied medical professions, who will be involved in the care of these patients. … This timely book, written by eminent authors, provides a state-of-the-art review of atrial fibrillation." (Carlos D Giraldo, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)
