IVUS Made Easy by Paul Schoenhagen

By Paul Schoenhagen

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a tomographic imaging modality played in the course of coronary angiography that permits the simultaneous review of lumen, vessel wall, and atherosclerotic plaque. IVUS has been confirmed because the approach to selection for the detection and serial commentary of transplant vasculopathy, and extra lately, for the serial commentary of atherosclerotic plaque burden in atherosclerosis progression/regression trials. whilst played through an operator accustomed to interventional, percutaneous ideas, the speed of issues in the course of IVUS imaging is enormously low.

IVUS Made Easy

offers an advent to coronary imaging with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). It includes a quick, functional textual content and corresponding illustrated IVUS photographs. The structure is uniform all through, with a non-illustrated IVUS snapshot displayed including an illustrated replica. in accordance with the formerly released An Atlas and handbook of Coronary Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging, this guide provides multiplied descriptions of the sensible points of IVUS and comprises more information in brief case shows.

The ebook starts off with the main of IVUS imaging. It discusses general arterial anatomy via IVUS, picture artifacts and IVUS measurements. It then discusses plaque (atheroma) morphology and medical applications.

Case stories comprise:

  • Coronary arteritis
  • Angiographically indeterminate lesion
  • Indeterminate lesion: plaque rupture
  • Intedeterminate lesion after angioplasty
  • Intracoronary thrombus (2 cases)
  • Complications of IVUS: dissection
  • Chronic coronary arterial wall dissection at the back of stent
  • Intramural hematoma post-PCI
  • Serial IVUS: regression

Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart by Richard A. Jonas

By Richard A. Jonas

This booklet is the 1st unmarried authored textbook protecting the full spectrum of surgical administration of congenital middle illness. the writer, Dr. Richard Jonas, is the manager of Cardiovascular surgical procedure at Children's sanatorium Boston and the fourth William E Ladd Professor of surgical procedure at Harvard scientific tuition. administration of congenital middle ailment this day calls for a collaborative attempt via a wide healthcare staff together with congenital cardiac surgeons but in addition pediatric cardiologists, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, perfusion and respiration technicians and pediatric nurses. All of those contributors have to have a transparent knowing of the surgical manipulations that occur within the working room. This textbook presents fantastically illustrations that essentially depict even the main complicated techniques. yet this booklet is way greater than an operative atlas. It provides evidence-based drugs that gives various medical citations which clarify not just how an operation may be performed but additionally while and why it may be performed and the results of those interventions.
