Although the majority of heart failure represents the exacerbation of chronic disease, about 20% will present as a first time diagnosis. And although there are a number of intravenous agents that can be used for acute decompensated heart failure, there are no national guidelines currently available. Edited by a well-known expert and his team of contributors, the book offers evidence-based advice on how they diagnose and treat their patients effectively. The sections cover: epidemiology and pathophysiology, diagnosis and evaluation, comorbidities, treatment strategies, issues in Management, and future directions in clinical practice and research.

For many years, there has been a great deal of work done on chronic congestive heart failure while acute heart failure has been considered a difficult to handle and hopeless syndrome. However, in recent years acute heart failure has become a growing area of study and this is the first book to cover extensively the diagnosis and management of this complex condition. The book reflects the considerable amounts of new data reported and many new concepts which have been proposed in the last 3-4 years looking at the epidemiology, diagnostic and treatment of acute heart failure.

This volume reviews potential future therapies for heart failure, with a particular focus on ambulatory acute decompensated heart failure and the transitions from therapies in the acute setting to chronic management. Although in the developed world the incidence of and mortality from coronary heart disease and stroke have been declining over the last 15 years, heart failure is increasing in incidence, prevalence and overall mortality, despite advances in the diagnosis and management of the condition. Pharmacologic Trends of Heart Failure builds on the current understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms and insights gained from previous studies of therapeutic interventions. It is designed to establish the baseline level of knowledge that a cardiovascular professional needs to know on a day-to-day basis.

Associated with both acute kidney injury (AKI) and cardio-renal syndromes (CRS), new biomarkers represent both a popular area of investigation and a new opportunity for advancement of therapy. This book contains the resolutions of the most recent ADQI conferences on biomarkers in AKI (Dublin) and on cardio-renal syndromes (Venice). The first part answers specific questions about new biomarkers and their use and utility in AKI: What are the most suitable candidate molecules and physiologic measures, how solid and evidence based is the discovery phase? How can we incorporate the new biomarkers in the AKI conceptual model describing the evolution from susceptibility to insult, decreased GFR and organ death? Even if we have a positive biomarker pattern and we can identify patients at risk or patients with early or even subclinical AKI, how is this information affecting our clinical behavior and practice? The second part is dedicated to the appraisal of the current knowledge about the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in different forms of CRS: it contains contributions on the state-of-the-art knowledge and practice of CRS, particularly focusing on the pathophysiology of the five subtypes. Acute and chronic mechanisms of damage are explored in depth, with particular attention to the primacy of organ involvement and the subsequent pathways of organ crosstalk.Presenting the most recent research in the field of biomarkers, AKI and CRS, this publication is an important educational tool for advanced investigators and clinical experts, but also for students and fellows.

This is a highly visual, case-based approach that covers the spectrum of the clinical presentation of heart failure. Each chapter revolves around one or more cases that best represent the diagnosis and treatment of a specific type of heart failure. The book encompasses newly diagnosed cases of heart failure, optimizing therapy for patients with known heart failure, heart failure associated with a variety of cardiac diseases, and heart failure in patients with systemic diseases. Authors also address the rapidly expanding field of familial-based cardiomyopathies and the difficult task of determining prognosis. The newly diagnosed cases of heart failure include non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy, post-myocardial infarction heart failure, tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation as a cause of heart failure, and manifestations of diastolic dysfunction causing heart failure. The section on optimizing therapy for patients with chronic heart failure encompasses treatment for an initially stabilized patient who begins to decline and presents with an acute exacerbation; treating patients with devices such as defibrillators, resynchronization pacemaker systems, or both; and actions that can be taken when, despite the full gamut of treatment, a patient is still symptomatic or gradually declining. Included is a discussion of hemodynamic optimization and advanced therapy for end-stage failure. Additionally, the book covers in depth procedures for determining prognosis and evaluating familial disease; and includes descriptions of medications commonly used for heart failure. Chapters are consistently formatted to include an overview of underlying pathophysiology, presentation of the representative ìteachingî case, and a discussion of optimal management including assessment of current evidence and guidelines. The book also features video loops of select procedures, available online. KEY FEATURES: Over thirty expert authors offer a practical, visual approach to common but complex management problems in heart failure Demonstrates real-world clinical management decisions and applications of current guidelines and evidence through case presentations Discusses assessment and treatment of newly diagnosed and chronic cases of heart failure Addresses heart failure associated with the gamut of cardiac diseases and in patients with systemic diseases Provides links to video loops of select procedures

Current trends predict that, by the year 2020, cardiovascular disease (CVD) will be the most common cause of death in the history of the human species. This century alone has seen the rise and recognition of CVD as a global problem, affecting both Western and Eastern populations in ever-increasing numbers. While modern research methods have lead to great strides in understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and decreasing its mortality, CVD still remains a major medical, social, and economic problem. In thirteen chapters, this book identifies clearly the most common cardiovascular problems encountered at the bedside by the consultant cardiologist. It then describes the possible different practical options in the management of these problems. These strategies incorporate data from recent clinical trials, with particular attention paid to specific subsets of patients who may (or may not) benefit from the suggested treatment. The intelligent application of these treatment modalities, tailored to a particular patient and maximized by the personal approach of the individual cardiologist consultant, will hopefully bring about the long-projected better outcome. In addition to common medical management, indications and practical suggestions for catheter-based interventions, endovascular pharmacologic manipulation, and atrial and ventricular pacing or defibrillation, are also addressed. Clinical cardiologists, internists or family physicians, as well as fellows and cardiovascular nurses, will find this book a valuable evidence-based medicine resource in the ongoing, global battle against complex cardiovascular problems.

Over 5.7 million people in America carry a diagnosis of heart failure, the incidence of which approaches 1 in 100 people over the age of 65. The cost to society is estimated at $29 billion annually and over 1.1 million hospital admissions. For hospitalized heart failure patients, the 30-day readmission rate approaches 25%. As our population ages these numbers are expected to grow. This issue of Cardiology Clinics helps practitioners to manage patients at all ACC/AHA stages of heart failure and addresses key issues that include sudden cardiac death, arrhythmias, acute decompensated heart failure, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
