Atrial Arrhythmias: State of the Art

Overview

Atrial fibrillation is the most commonly encountered sustained arrhythmia in medical practice. It can occur in virtually all structural cardiac abnormalities. Atrial fibrillation is not an acutely life-threatening arrhythmia but is presence is associated with significant long term morbidity, including heart failure and stroke, and increased mortality.

Overview

Atrial fibrillation is the most commonly encountered sustained arrhythmia in medical practice. It can occur in virtually all structural cardiac abnormalities. Atrial fibrillation is not an acutely life-threatening arrhythmia but is presence is associated with significant long term morbidity, including heart failure and stroke, and increased mortality.
This book is a summary of the proceedings of a conference sponsored by American Heart Association. In recent years, investigators from many disciplines have shown a rekindled interest in the study of atrial fibrillation. This book draws upon experts in the fields of cardiology, epidemiology, neurology, pediatrics, and basic science to present the latest information on the mechanisms and pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatment therapies for atrial fibrillation

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald S. Rubenstein, MD, PhD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: The book describes the most recent advances in the evaluation and treatment of atrial arrhythmias. Experts from North America and Europe that participated in the conference for Councils of Clinical Cardiology in 1993 provided the summaries presented in this timely review.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the latest information surrounding the field of atrial arrhythmias. Several new methodological approaches have brought a rekindled interest into mechanisms and therapies of this disorder. As a result of these rapid advances, the book provides a very important and timely addition to the must-read textbooks for the cardiologist.
Audience: The book is targeted for the cardiologist, both general practitioner and cardiac electrophysiologist. The book is an important text for all cardiologists-in-training. The editors and contributors are some of the world's leading investigators in each of their fields.
Features: The book includes numerous illustrations, graphs, charts, and tables that provide important clarity to the work. The references are extensive and recent, reflective of this rapidly progressive field. The editorial comment that follows most chapters provides a unique method to provide an additional perspective on each topic.
Assessment: This is a very useful book for all cardiology practitioners, cardiac electrophysiologists and cardiologists-in-training. It fully summarizes the latest information of the mechanisms and treatment of atrial arrhythmias.
