About this book

This book spans topics in both congenital and acquired right heart disease providing readers with detailed information on the physiology, anatomy and myocardial mechanics of the right ventricle (RV), while describing the use of echo and MRI imaging to diagnose, and new developments in surgery and cardiac catheterization to treat.

Right Ventricular Physiology, Adaptation and Failure in Congenital and Acquired Heart Disease includes extensive discussion of RV-pulmonary interactions, pulmonary hypertension and ventricular-ventricular interactions, including specific topics in embryology, fetal RV function, RV mechanics, pathophysiology of RV adaptation/ failure, molecular aspects of RV dysfunction, congenital heart disease, pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary valve replacement, stem cell and future therapies.​ It is thus important reading for all cardiovascular medicine professionals, but especially pediatric cardiologists and surgeons, those who manage t

hese patients in the cardiac care unit and investigators studying the RV. 

About the authors

Mark Friedberg trained as a pediatric cardiologist at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford in California where he also completed a senior fellowship in pediatric echocardiography and cardiac imaging. At Stanford he was awarded a Glaser Pediatric Research Network fellowship for the years 2005-6. Dr Friedberg joined the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and became an assistant professor at the University of Toronto in 2006 where he is currently a staff physician in pediatric and fetal echocardiography. He was appointed as an associate scientist to the Sickkids research institute in 2012 and his lab investigates ventricular-ventricular interactions and mechanisms of biventricular dysfunction in increased RV afterload. His research interests include assessment of ventricular-ventricular interactions, ventricular function, especially RV function in pediatric congenital and acquired heart disease, tissue Doppler and deformation imaging in children and assessment of mechanical dyssynchrony and biventricular pacing in children. Andrew Redington's research interests include ventricular function, integrated physiology of congenital heart disease, and the pathophysiology of late postoperative functional decline. He led a Leducq Transatlantic Research Network of Excellence investigating the biology of remote ischemic preconditioning. He has co-edited seven textbooks. Dr. Redington was awarded a British Heart Foundation Research Scholarship and subsequently received his Doctorate of Medicine in 1988 (UK). He was appointed Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London in 1990, became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) in 1994, and became a full professor in the University of London in 1995. In 1998, he transferred his clinical practice and research team to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. He moved to Canada in August 2001, to take the position of Head of Cardiology at The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto.
