This book focuses on the practical aspects of clinical electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias in the young. It represents a compilation of the clinical course, electrophysiologic studies, pharmacological management, and transcatheter ablation therapy in patients from infancy through young adulthood. Topics include the mechanism, ECG characteristics, electrophysiologic findings, treatment, and prognosis of tachyarrhythmias and bradyarrhythmias; specialized subjects including syncope, cardiac pacemakers, and implantable cardiac defibrillators; pharmacology of antiarrhythmic agents; and the roles of allied healthcare professionals in the management of arrhythmias in the young. This revised edition includes new or expanded chapters on the molecular biology mechanisms that underlie the structure and function of the cardiac conduction system; new navigation technologies for detecting cardiac arrhythmias while minimizing radiation exposure; genetic disorders of the cardiac impulse; and sudden cardiac death in the young, particularly athletes. Featuring contributions from practicing clinical cardiac electrophysiologists affiliated with the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at the University of Michigan, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology in the Young, Second Edition, is a premier reference for cardiologists, residents, and medical students.

As in the case of its eleven predecessors in the series Tumors of the Central Nervous System, this volume is distinguished for its thorough approach, its roster of 92 distinguished contributors representing 11 different countries and its detailed examination of leading-edge technology and methods.Volume 12: Molecular Mechanisms, Children's Cancer, Treatments, and Radiosurgery offers a comprehensive review of the diagnosis, therapy and prognosis of brain and spinal cord tumors. Coverage extends to a large number of tumor types, including neuroblastoma, medulloblastoma, meningioma and chordoma. Molecular profiling of brain tumors to select appropriate therapy in clinical trials of brain tumors is discussed in detail, as is the classification/diagnosis of brain tumors based on function analysis. CDK6 as the molecular regulator of neuronal differentiation in the adult brain, and the role of aquaporins in human brain tumor growth are explained. Discussion also includes tumors affecting children, including neuroblastoma and medulloblastoma. A full chapter is devoted to the role of molecular genetic alterations in medulloblastoma, and another examines survival differences between children and adults with medulloblastoma. The use of various types of imaging methods to diagnose brain tumors is explained. In-depth discussion of treatment options includes stereotactic radiosurgery, endoscopic neurosurgery, electrochemotherapy, transsphenoidal surgery, focal ablation, whole brain radiation therapy and recraniotomy.

The Brugada Syndrome

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Until recently, the cellular basis for sudden death, the BrugadaSyndrome, has largely remained an unknown to modernarrhythmologists and cardiologists, particularly in the absence ofany structural heart disease. Detailed observations of age-groups,especially the young, families and populations where sudden deathfrequently occurs, and improved understanding of its contributoryfactors and mechanisms are, however, showing the way forward. This addition to the Clinical Approaches to Tachyarrhythmias(CATA) Series, written by the investigators who discovered andprobed the Brugada Syndrome, discusses the history, etiology,pathology and clinical manifestations of sudden death. Fromdiagnosis, prognosis, to therapeutic approaches using the latest incathater ablation techniques, electrophysiological surgery, andgenetic appraisal, the work is a testimony to the author'sinvestigation. Using clinical cases in Thailand and Laos, theyfurther unravel the syndrome's molecular mechanisms, studyingrelated syndromes, such as the long-QT syndrome, infant death, andarryhthmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. By being informed of the electrophysiological abnormalities thatcontribute to familial and genetic diseases, physicians,cardiologists and all those who care for patients with cardiacarrhythmias will be better able to identify and treat patients inwhom the Brugada Syndrome may strike next.

This text focuses on the practical, and theoretical when applicable, aspects of clinical electrophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias in the young. It represents a compilation of the clinical course, electrocardiograms, electrophysiologic studies, pharmacological management and transcatheter ablation therapy in patients from infancy through young adulthood seen at the clinical sites of the authors of this volume. The book is divided into two parts. The first part, Background (Chapters 1-3) discusses the cardiac conduction system - development, anatomy and physiology. Particular attention is directed to the clinical electrophysiology of the cardiac conduction system and the techniques of electrophysiologic study that are specific to children and that have been developed and practiced at the clinical centers represented in this volume. The second part, Cardiac Electrophysiology in Infants and Children focuses on the clinical science of cardiac arrhythmias in infants and children. Chapters 4-12 discuss the mechanisms, the ECG characteristics, electrophysiologic findings, treatment and prognosis of tachyarrhythmias. Chapters 13-16 focus on bradyarrhythmias. Chapters 17-20 address certain specialized subjects including syncope, cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, genetic disorders of the cardiac impulse, fetal arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death as it occurs in the young. Chapters 21-22 center on the pharmacology of antiarrhythmic agents, indications for use, doses, side effects and toxicity, as well as on transcatheter arrhythmia ablation. Finally, what the practitioner can expect to see from the impact of cardiac arrhythmias on the life of the patient and family is discussed from the nursing point of view in Chapter 23. This volume is intended for the young house officer or mature physician to increase their understanding, spark their interest and lead them to a therapeutic solution when faced with a child with a cardiac arrhythmia.
