Overview

This well-referenced volume is a unique and comprehensive resource for physicians, nurses, and other health professionals dealing with cardiovascular patients, their counseling, and rehabilitation. Written by an acclaimed contributor to the field, Sexual Aspects of Cardiovascular Disease provides health professionals with presently available information on the sexuality of these patients, their concerns and problems, the impact of pathophysiologic and psychological factors, and the need for comprehensive sexual counseling. The volume addresses sexual aspects involved in patients with coronary artery disease, hypertension, congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, aorto-iliac occlusive disease, as well as coronary by-pass surgery, heart transplant, and stroke patients. The safety and desirability of childbearing is studied as well as the interrelationships of sexual function and cardiovascular drugs.

Sexual counseling of the patient and spouse is one component of comprehensive cardiac care. This volume will enhance the clinician's ability to provide this guidance. Topics discussed include: sex and the non-coronary cardiac patient; quality of life and sexual activity after cardiac surgery; sex and stroke patient; cardiovascular drugs and sexuality. Health professionals, persons suffering from cardiovascular disease, or anyone who knows someone with a cardiovascular disease will benefit from Dr. Papadopolou's in-depth study.
