Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias has been so extensively updated for its third edition that the book now features a new title: Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias: Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications. The editors bring you 21 polished chapters, each updating the fundamentals and progressing to advanced concepts, providing state-of-the-art knowledge with highly relevant material for experienced electrophysiologists as well as fellows in training. This streamlined new edition features: • Two new editors, both widely published and leaders in the field of catheter ablation • 21 instead of 39 chapters, achieved by focusing on primary topics of broad interest and assimilating information from a wide range of sources • Fewer authors, chosen for their recognized contributions to the topics under discussion, providing a more integrated and coherent approach • Anatomic insights from leading pathologist Siew Yen Ho, integrated with new information from imaging technologies Each chapter dealing with ablation of a specific arrhythmia features the author's personal approach to ablation of the arrhythmia, including practical "how-to" tips, and a review of potential pitfalls. Alternate approaches and variations are succinctly summarized. Original figures and drawings illustrate specific approaches to improve the usability of the book.

The field of catheter ablation has grown In a rather helter-skelter fashion. Ablative techniques were applied in patients before basic bioelectric and cellular electrophysiologic effects were fully defined. Since the introduction of this technique into clinical medicine in 1982, happily, a wealth of basic information has become available, and it was thought prudent to summarize existing data in the form of a text. The purpose of this text is to provide for a concise summary of both the basic and clinical experiences to date. It was simply not possible to include chapters from many workers who have made outstanding contributions in this area. For this, I offer my profound apolo gies. I do wish, however, to acknowledge the outstanding work of Drs. Bharati and Lev who provided us with a sound understanding of the histolo gic effects of various energy delivery systems. Their seminal observations allowed us to bring this technique to clinical fruition.

This book provides cutting-edge theories and techniques for catheter ablation of all kinds of tachyarrhythmias. Catheter ablation has been a main therapeutic method for tachyarrhythmias for more than thirty years now, and countless operations have been successfully performed. It is crucial for electrophysiologists to diagnose arrhythmia mechanisms correctly and to optimize ablation methods, especially in Japan, one of the world’s fastest-aging countries and where many of this book’s authors are based. The volume is divided into eight parts. The first three parts present the basic theories and novel insights essential to diagnosing and performing catheter ablations. In turn, the latter five parts highlight practical ablation methods in the context of frequently encountered arrhythmias cases, as well as rare ones such as chanellopathies. Written for electrophysiologists who treat patients with cardiac arrhythmias, the book offers readers essential tips and tricks for the optimal treatment of arrhythmias.

Der vorliegende Band "Prädisponierende Bedingungen flir akute Ischämiesyn drome" faßt die Ergebnisse eines internationalen Symposiums zusammen, das am 14. und 15. Oktober 1988 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen stattfand. Die Herausgeber dieses Buches danken den Autoren herzlich flir ihre Bemühungen, die Manuskripte bereits vor dem Treffen fertigzustellen, der Bayer AG flir ihre großzügige Unter stützung und dem Verlag flir die effiziente Zusammenarbeit. All diese Teilanstren gungen haben gemeinsam das rasche Erscheinen dieses Bandes ermöglicht. Bei der koronaren Herzkrankheit wird die Prognose flir die Patienten weitgehend durch den Eintritt einer irreversiblen ischämischen Schädigung des Herzmuskels bestimmt. Den irreversiblen Ereignissen geht eine Destabilisierung eines zuvor sta bilen Zustandes voraus. Diese Destabilisierung kann mit sich verstärkender Sym ptomiltik oder ohne sichtbare Warnzeichen flir Patient und Arzt eintreten; sie kann über einen längeren Zeitraum oder sehr rasch ablaufen. Dennoch trifft die Aussage zu, daß kein Patient jemals an einer stabilen Angina pectoris verstorben ist. Also muß man sich, will man die Prognose flir die Patienten mit koronarer Herzkrankheit verbessern, auf das Erkennen und die Behandlung der instabilen Ischämiesyndrome konzentrieren. Ziel des Symposiums war es, Wissenschaftler und Kliniker aus verschiedenen Forschungsgebieten zusammenzuführen, um zu einem aktuellen Überblick über die unterschiedlichen Aspekte der instabilen Ischämiesyndrome zu gelangen und die interdisziplinäre Diskussion zu fOrdern.
