Heart failure is epidemic throughout the world. A growing incidence and prevalence has resulted in a large population of individuals transitioning to advanced stages of the syndrome and requiring uniquely specialised therapies and cardiac transplantation.
Oxford Textbook of Advanced Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation is a focused and comprehensive work covering this new and rapidly growing cardiovascular subspecialty. Authored by eminent international experts, it is the authoritative text on advanced heart failure and a central resource for clinicians caring for patients with this conditition.
By covering a range of characteristics, therapeutic challenges and practical aspects of managing patients this book provides an in-depth source for cardiologists and other related clinicians. A strong focus on the difficult decision making needed to handle advanced heart failure cases, along with specific knowledge of epidemiology, biology and pathophysiology, creates a key tool for optimally managing these complex patients.
Was disappointed. Basically a general review of heart failure similar to what you would get in any standard textbook of cardiology or review of the ACC/AHA/HFSA guidelines. Really had expected a more in-depth discussion on the intricacies and unique features of managing these complicated patients with advanced disease. Perhaps utilizing case studies to drive home teaching points and practical “tricks of the trade” from this group of distinguished authors.
On a positive note, the transplant and LVAD chapters were good reviews. However, surprised that more attention was not given to the issue acute mechanical circulatory support in cardiogenic shock such as with ECMO. The two chapters on right heart failure were probably the best of the book.
In summary, a solid, scientifically sound text that will be helpful for board review but with too little practical, clinically useful information to take to the heart failure clinic tomorrow.
This aspect of the syndrome is very comprehensive .The molecular and complex biochemical basis as well as the clinical focus were well written
