This volume is a step-by-step educational echocardiography textbook from basic principles to advanced concepts. It is designed to rationalise and instruct readers on the rapid development in echocardiographic techniques, including real-time three-dimensional echocardiography, strain/strain rate imaging, and speckle tracking, which have greatly expanded the capabilities of cardiac imaging while overshadowing the importance of the basics of echocardiography. Case-Based Textbook of Echocardiography offers a comprehensive review of echocardiography from basic skills to advanced techniques, including practical information from recently published ASE/EACVI guidelines and explanatory movies and figures. Providing balance between the science and clinical pearls, it is of great interest for all trainee cardiologists and echocardiographers and helpful to all clinicians in cardiology, internal medicine, cardiac surgery, interventio nal cardiology and paediatric cardiology.

It also covers all the material in the guidelines published by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in 2018 and the recommendations set out by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in 2017. Contrast echocardiography at present is only used in 5-10% of cases, but this is expected to grow rapidly following the recommendations of the ASE and EACVI. The chapters cover the approved indications and provide practical advice on how to administer the contrast agents and how to optimize the recordings as well as how to deal with the pitfalls. The reader will find all the information on how to use contrast agents for assessment of shunts, LV volumes and function as well as myocardial diseases and masses. Detailed protocols are included for stress echocardiography and myocardial perfusion imaging. Other topics covered include the use of contrast agents for coronary sonography and transesophageal echocardiography. Contrast Echocardiography: Compendium for Clinical Practice comprehensively covers all aspects of the clinical use of contrast echocardiography and has been written by two cardiologists who share their experience from their high volume echo laboratories. One of the authors has been a member of both the ASE guidelines and EACVI recommendation writing groups. It is therefore, a critical text for echocardiographers and sonographers who perform echocardiography.

The ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care is the official textbook of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACVC) of the ESC. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a major cause of premature death worldwide and a cause of loss of disability-adjusted life years. For most types of CVD early diagnosis and intervention are independent drivers of patient outcome. Clinicians must be properly trained and centres appropriately equipped in order to deal with these critically ill cardiac patients. This new updated edition of the textbook continues to comprehensively approach all the different issues relating to intensive and acute cardiovascular care and addresses all those involved in intensive and acute cardiac care, not only cardiologists but also critical care specialists, emergency physicians and healthcare professionals. The chapters cover the various acute cardiovascular diseases that need high quality intensive treatment as well as organisational issues, cooperation among professionals, and interaction with other specialities in medicine. SECTION 1 focusses on the definition, structure, organisation and function of ICCU's, ethical issues and quality of care. SECTION 2 addresses the pre-hospital and immediate in-hospital (ED) emergency cardiac care. SECTIONS 3-5 discuss patient monitoring, diagnosis and specific procedures. Acute coronary syndromes (ACS), acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), and serious arrhythmias form SECTIONS 6-8. The main other cardiovascular acute conditions are grouped in SECTION 9. Finally SECTION 10 is dedicated to the many concomitant acute non-cardiovascular conditions that contribute to the patients' case mix in ICCU. This edition includes new chapters such as low cardiac output states and cardiogenic shock, and pacemaker and ICDs: troubleshooting and chapters have been extensively revised. Purchasers of the print edition will also receive an access code to access the online version of the textbook which includes additional figures, tables, and videos to better to better illustrate diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and procedures in IACC. The third edition of the ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Care will establish a common basis of knowledge and a uniform and improved quality of care across the field.

Cardiac imaging technique has produced a revolution in the diagnostic assessment and prognostic assessment of the cardiac patient. Echocardiography, MRIs, CT-scan techniques, and nuclear medicine procedures are the four basic pillars on which the field of cardiac image is based upon. New procedures in clinical practice has caused cardiologists to make an effort to incorporate this knowledge into their daily routine. This is why the Spanish Society of Cardiac Imaging (SEIC) has decided to coordinate an innovative project endorsed by the most important scientific societies in the area of cardiac imaging: the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI); the Italian Society of Cardiovascular Echography (SIEC); and the Association of Echocardiography and the Cardiovascular Imaging of the Inter-American Society of Cardiology (ECOSIAC). Through a number of practical clinical cases, they expose essential lines of cardiac diagnosis in different cardiac pathologies. The outcome is this unique book. Written in English and Spanish and heavily illustrated, Cardiac Imaging Atlas will be helpful to Cardiologists, Radiologists, Fellows as well as students, and anybody interested in the field of cardiac imaging. Text is side-by-side in English and Spanish. [Subject: Medicine, Cardiac Imaging, Echography]
