About this book

This book provides a state-of-the-art description of the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease (VHD). With an aging population, the incidence and complexity of VHD has markedly increased and the introduction of transcatheter valve therapies have revolutionized the management of these frequent and serious cardiovascular diseases. The development of percutaneous valve interventions has revolutionized the management of VHD (or has dramatically changed its management)

Heart Valve Disease: State of the Art is dedicated to provide up-to-date knowledge to clinical and interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular imagers and cardiac surgeons. It provides state-of-the-art information for the health-care professional working in heart valve clinics, heart teams, and centers of excellence that specialize in managing patients with heart valve disease.

Reviews

“This is a great source for understanding valvular heart disease aimed at cardiologists, internists, physicians in training, midlevel providers, echocardiography technicians, researchers, and scientists. It is especially useful to people interested in cardiology training or cardiac imaging fellowship and those preparing for echocardiography boards. … This is an excellent reference book for echocardiographers, echo technicians, cardiologists, physicians in training, internists, and midlevel providers that thoroughly summarizes state-of-the-art information on valvular heart disease, with references from ASE and EACVI guidelines.” (Venugopal B Bhattad, Doody’s Book Reviews, March 27, 2020)
