About this book

This book provides a comprehensive account of the role of echocardiography in patients with mitral valve disease. The normal echocardiographic anatomy of the mitral valve is first presented, and the applications of echocardiography in mitral valve disease are then covered in detail by experts from different subspecialties in cardiology. Topics include etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, assessment of severity, and role of echocardiography in percutaneous and surgical techniques. The highly readable text is supported by a wealth of color images obtained with 3D echocardiography, currently the gold standard for the evaluation of mitral valve disease. The interdisciplinary approach used in describing the diagnostic and therapeutic applications will make this book useful for the clinical cardiologist as well as the echocardiographer. It will allow cardiologists to advance their knowledge in the field and will serve as an excellent updating tool for professionals engaged in echocardiography and cardiac diagnostic imaging. ​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides both background information as well as an up-to-date review of advances in evaluation of the complex structure that is the mitral valve. … It is intended for echocardiography specialists as well as clinical cardiologists. … The book is most appropriate for imaging specialists, but the pathophysiology and anatomical sections would certainly appeal to both intended audiences. … This book does a fantastic job of covering the most important aspects of echocardiographic mitral valve evaluation.” (Evan S. Jacobs, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2014)
