Summary and Info
The ECG is a fundamental diagnostic tool in cardiology, allowing accurate diagnosis and monitoring of acute and chronic ischemic heart disease. In this most comprehensive book of its kind, internationally renowned authors correlate electrocardiographic recordings with anatomical patterns of myocardial ischemia to improve the diagnosis and management of patients with ischemic heart disease.The book is structured in two sections. Part One covers electrocardiographic patterns of ischemia, injury and infarction.• Each chapter discusses a different ECG abnormality in turn, clearly explaining the ischemic insults and electrophysiological mechanisms underlying each pattern to promote rapid and accurate interpretation of the ECG in the clinical setting.• ECG abnormalities are correlated with myocardial anatomy and coronary angiography to produce a series of practical diagnostic algorithms that allow the clinician to identify not only the occluded artery but the precise location of the occlusion within the artery, facilitating appropriate therapeutic decisions.• The authors also propose a new classification of Q-wave myocardial infarctions based on imaging correlations with advanced techniques such as contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance.Part Two of the book covers the ECG in clinical practice. Each chapter focuses on a different clinical syndrome, describing the role of the ECG in a global approach to the diagnosis, prognosis and risk stratification of patients with acute and chronic ischemic heart disease and guiding clinical decision-making.Extensively referenced and illustrated throughout, this book is highly recommended for any clinician involved in the diagnosis and management of ischemic heart disease.Content: Chapter 1 Anatomy of the Heart: The Importance of Imaging Techniques Correlations (pages 3–18): Chapter 2 Electrocardiographic Changes Secondary to Myocardial Ischaemia (pages 19–29): Chapter 3 Electrocardiographic Pattern of Ischaemia: T?Wave Abnormalities (pages 30–54): Chapter 4 Electrocardiographic Pattern of Injury: ST?Segment Abnormalities (pages 55–127): Chapter 5 Electrocardiographic Pattern of Necrosis: Abnormal Q Wave (pages 128–194): Chapter 6 Acute and Chronic Ischaemic Heart Disease: Definition of Concepts and Classification (pages 197–198): Chapter 7 Patients with Acute Chest Pain: Role of the ECG and its Correlations (pages 199–208): Chapter 8 Acute Coronary Syndrome: Unstable Angina and Acute Myocardial Infarction (pages 209–274): Chapter 9 Myocardial Infarction with Q Wave (pages 275–288): Chapter 10 Myocardial Infarction Without Q Waves or Equivalent: Acute and Chronic Phase (pages 289–296): Chapter 11 Clinical Settings with Anginal Pain, Outside the ACS (pages 297–301): Chapter 12 Silent Ischaemia (pages 302–303): Chapter 13 Usefulness and Limitations of the ECG in Chronic Ischaemic Heart Disease (pages 304–307): Chapter 14 The ECG as a Predictor of Ischaemic Heart Disease (pages 308–309):
