Atrial Fibrillation: From Bench to Bedside (Contemporary Cardiology)


Atrial Fibrillation: From Bench to Bedside (Contemporary Cardiology) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

These 31 articles report on a wide range of aspects of atrial fibrillation (AF), in part because AF is common and increasing exponentially as the population ages and affects all areas of medicine. Articles include an introduction to its epidemiology and impact on the health care system, including papers on the economic costs of AF and its treatment by ablation; AF's pathophysiology, molecular mechanisms and genetics, including electrical and structural modeling and remodeling, the role of oxidant stress, and intracellular calcium dynamics; medical treatment, including recent trials of medical therapies; AF ablation, including the applied cardiac anatomy for catheter ablation, techniques and hybrid strategies; surgery for AF, including minimally invasive surgical treatment; imaging technologies and associates arrhythmias, including CT and MR images, three-dimensional mapping, remote catheter navigation and strategies for left atrial flutter; and future directions in AF research and treatment.
