This book is the first to approach the field of congestive heart failure as a true subspecialty of cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. The text discusses the entire field of congestive heart failure: the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms; the underlying diseases; the effects of heart failure on the remainder of circulation; the mechanisms and results of pharmacologic therapy; the multiple surgical and multidisciplinary approaches to end-stage heart disease; and the ultimate prognosis of congestive heart failure in all of the areas of heart failure management. Thus, this text uniquely puts into perspective all of the features of congestive heart failure and its management for the cardiologist, cardiovascular surgeon, and general internist.

Heart Failure (HF) is the final and common pathway of all cardiovascular diseases. Heart Failure: Bench to Bedside helps address a significant need to develop new paradigms and to identify novel therapeutic targets for this pervasive disease. An authoritative contribution to the field, this book provides a detailed description of new findings and emerging methodologies, as well as a critical clinical evaluation of the complex HF syndrome and future therapies. Heart Failure: Bench to Bedside includes a primer on gene profiling and bioenergetics of the normal heart and a discussion of the molecular, genetic, biochemical and cellular techniques critical to understanding HF. Further chapters discuss cardiac remodeling, oxidative stress, and alterations in other organs and systems that are often associated with HF. This book thoughtfully evaluates current and forthcoming diagnostic techniques and therapies, pharmaceutical and pharmacogenomic-based individualized medicine, gene and cell-based therapies, and the search for new frontiers. Heart Failure: Bench to Bedside presents a clear view of up-to-date approaches to clinical diagnosis and treatment, as well as offering insightful critiques of original and creative scientific thoughts on post-genomic HF research.

This Second Edition of Dr. Katz's highly acclaimed text has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the latest advances in the study and treatment of heart failure. The book explains the pathophysiology, molecular mechanisms, clinical manifestations, and therapy of heart failure in an integrated, reader-friendly manner that is accessible to both clinicians and basic scientists. More than 100 illustrations, most created for this book by the authors, complement the text. This edition has been completely reorganized. Chapters describe the hemodynamic basis for the clinical manifestations of heart failure; the neurohumoral responses in heart failure and key signaling pathways that mediate functional responses; the proliferative responses in failing hearts; the cellular and molecular abnormalities in the failing heart; the rationale for various therapeutic approaches; and the management of specific groups of patients. The chapters on therapy have been written by a noted clinician, Marvin A. Konstam.

Heart failure is an important and ever expanding sub-speciality of cardiology. Many health care professional bodies are now developing specialist expertise in heart failure. This is true for cardiologists in training, consultant cardiologists, care of the elderly and general physicians, cardiothoracic surgeons, primary care doctors, pharmacists and specialist nurses. With advances in medical therapy, the prognosis of the condition has improved dramatically. Whereas once heart failure was a pre-terminal diagnosis, now for many it is treatable. However, some patients remain symptomatic and at high risk of death despite maximal medical therapy. These patients can benefit from a range of novel device therapies. For those who remain symptomatic despite optimal treatment cardiac transplantation remains an option. This updated book comprehensively covers all aspects necessary to manage a patient with heart failure. It gives simple, clear advice on the diagnosis, investigation and treatment options available highlighting the current evidence-base. The chapters provide concise and objective information to guide all health care professionals involved in the modern day multi-disciplinary management of the syndrome. The book is set out logically to mirror the patient journey in heart failure. An updated edition of the first practical manual of heart failure management.

The number of people suffering from this debilitating condition is predicted to grow exponentially over the next decade. This has serious implications for the health services. Investigating heart failure is not cheap even where facilities exist. The drugs used, though effective – often remarkably so – are also costly as are laboratory investigations. These again are not cheap. People with heart failure require frequent admissions to hospital and occupy many beds and much staff attention. All of these factors are set to increase over the next decades. This eclectic collection of papers tackles many of the issues that concern those who care for individuals with heart failure; organisation of services, exercise, palliative care amongst them, but also novel and rarely discussed issues. The book is suited to both pre and post-registered health care students. We do not supply inspection copies but we do supply Examination copies, whereby a course leader has 30 days to evaluate the book, then choose to adopt, purchase or return the book.
