Book Title – Hemodynamic Rounds, 2nd Edition
Book Author Last Name – Kern
Total Number of Pages – 352
Book Description – Specialists and Residents in Invasive Cardiology, Fellows in training in Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery.
Topics Covered in this Book – Hematology
This new edition of Hemodynamic Rounds provides an expanded series of case studies demonstrating the importance of hemodynamic measurements in understanding cardiac pathology.
As with its popular predecessor, Hemodynamic Rounds, Second Edition provides numerous brief case examples incorporating different hemodynamic tracings and considers for each the factors responsible for producing those waveforms. The text is organized into chapters on specific areas of the heart, common cardiac anomalies, and hemodynamic situations resulting from different therapeutic procedures, and includes both normal and abnormal pressure waveforms. The new sections include:
* Mitral stenosis and pulsus alterations
* Low-gradient aortic valve stenosis
* Pitfalls of right heart hemodynamics
* Pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty
* Coronary hemodynamics for angioplasty and stenting after myocardial infarction
* Hemodynamic evaluation of stenotic bioprosthetic mitral valves
Hemodynamic Rounds, Second Edition will be an invaluable resource for invasive cardiologists, cardiology residents, cardiac nurses, and catheterization technicians.

INTERVENTIONAL PHYSIOLOGY ROUNDS
Case Studies in Coronary Pressure and Flow for Clinical Practice
This book is intended to help cardiologists enhance their understanding of interventional coronary physiology, including the basic principles of flow and pressure measurements; coronary hemodynamics in normal and diseased states; and changes in blood flow following interventional procedures ranging from angioplasty and stent placement to atherectomy and coronary thrombolysis.
