Overview

The essential resource on cardiac hemodynamics-now in a new edition

Hemodynamic Rounds, Third Edition is intended to help cardiologists and other members of the medical community enhance their understanding of cardiac physiology and its associated hemodynamic presentations in health and disease, including the basic principles of flow and pressure measurements; systemic as well as coronary hemodynamics in normal and diseased states; and changes in hemodynamics following interventional procedures ranging from valvuloplasty to stent placement.

Like its popular predecessors, this new edition draws on case studies to illustrate characteristic cardiac hemodynamic findings and discuss the essential methods used in interpreting pressure waveforms as a diagnostic and monitoring tool.

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. This new edition includes thoroughly revised and updated chapters on specific topics, including:

  • Mitral stenosis and mitral valvuloplasty
  • Low-gradient aortic valve stenosis
  • Pitfalls of right heart hemodynamics
  • Aortic and pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty
  • Coronary hemodynamics for angioplasty and stenting
  • Hemodynamic evaluation of stenotic bioprosthetic mitral valves
  • Evaluation of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathies
  • Understanding cardiac pathophysiology from bedside hemodynamic study

Hemodynamic Rounds, Third Edition, is the only book on the market that specifically addresses comprehensive cardiac hemodynamic findings, reviewing blood pressure tracings collected from the cardiac catheterization lab on all aspects of cardiovascular disease, as well as normal cardiac function. It is an indispensable tool for all physicians, nurses, and students measuring and interpreting cardiac waveforms in cardiac diagnosis and monitoring.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Eric D. Grassman
This book discusses interpretation of cardiac pathophysiology from pressure waveform analysis in a case example format. The purpose is to provide illustrations and discussions of characteristic hemodynamic findings to assist in hemodynamic waveform interpretation. This excellent objective is accomplished. The audience is physicians-in-training, cardiologists, nurses, and technical personnel. This was specified by the author, who is a very credible authority on this subject. The illustrations are well reproduced, clear, and informative. The references are short, concise, and pertinent. One of the relatively unique features of the book is its case example format. The index is very thorough; it is quite easy to locate a topic. I appreciate the overall simplicity of the appearance of the book. This is an excellent addition to the library of most cardiologists and cardiology fellows. It reemphasizes an important, but somewhat neglected, aspect of cardiac catheterization. Its case example format makes it easy to read and informative. I particularly like the inclusion of new technology such as the Doppler flow wire.
John F. Moran
In this book the pathophysiology of cardiac pressure wave forms are covered—not only valvular hemodynamics pre- and post-valvuloplasty, but also coronary hemodynamics, constriction physiology, and hemodynamics of cardiac arrhythmias. Almost all of these chapters originally appeared in the Journal of Catheterization and Cardiovascular Diagnosis. The purpose is to expand the use of the case management format for the interpretation of hemodynamics and offer a study in various patient problems of pressure waves associated with various pathologic states. The editor's objectives are well met. The book is really directed towards any student of cardiac hemodynamics, from cardiovascular trainees to physiologists and practicing cardiologists, as well as cardiologists specializing in the techniques of cardiac catheterization. The editor is a nationally recognized authority in this area. Hemodynamics is covered by the case method in each chapter. There are black-and-white pressure tracings that are well done and well discussed on each patient problem. The editor opens the discussion with two important chapters on the recording pitfalls of right heart hemodynamics and a chapter on artifacts especially when dealing with cardiac arrhythmias. There is an excellent discussion on low gradient aortic stenosis and the importance of simultaneous pressure recordings. There is a particularly well written section on the hemodynamics of constrictive physiology. This second edition expands the text from 29 chapters to 42 chapters, all previously published in the Journal from 1990-1998. References in the text go back to classic papers on hemodynamics and proceed to more currentmaterial. This might include the use and limitations of coronary vasodilatory reserve and the fractional flow reserve of the myocardium, and the section on coronary hemodynamics. This is a very worthwhile collection of articles that are conveniently grouped in one place. They provide must reading for all students of hemodynamics.

In a case-study format, explains to cardiovascular trainees and practicing cardiologists how to use the interpretation of hemodynamics for clinical decision making. Arranged by specific areas of the heart, common cardiac anomalies, and hemodynamic situations resulting from different therapeutic procedures. Includes both normal and abnormal pressure waveforms. No date is mentioned for the first edition; the second includes new case studies and new sections on mitral stenosis and pulsus alterations, low-gradient aortic valve stenosis, pitfalls of right heart hemodynamics, and other topics.

    Ignore My Earlier Review

    The other review for this book was written by myself, a noninvasive cardiologist working in an urban hospital, a few years ago. It referred to the previous edition of the book. I have no idea why a new edition would be needed, as invasive hemodynamic waveform analysis has not changed in decades. This edition is much more expensive. So my advice to cardiology fellows looking to learn invasive hemodynamics (and you all do need to learn that well) is go get a cheap copy of the old edition. You cannot do any better than the old edition.
