The only reference wholly dedicated to this complex topic, Diagnosis and Treatment of Mitral Valve Disease: A Multidisciplinary Approach provides authoritative, must-have information on the disease processes affecting the mitral valve, interpretation of diagnostic studies, and medical, transcatheter, and surgical treatments needed for mitral valve repair. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Drs. Scott Goldman and William Gray oversee a “who’s who” team of contributing authors who offer a holistic view of the modern treatment of mitral valve disease for today’s cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, and other cardiac team members.
Includes foundational chapters on anatomy and pathophysiology of the mitral valve—critically important topics when treating multiple complex and highly dynamic structures that function as a single unit.
Covers diagnostic tools, medical treatments, surgical therapies, and transcatheter therapies, and provides tips for developing a successful mitral valve program (with baseline thresholds, common pitfalls, and a checklist for hospitals).
Uses an accessible, quick-reference format that features takeaway chapter openers, bulleted key points, end-of-chapter summaries, a common nomenclature and glossary of terms, key references, and ample line drawings, photographs, tables, charts, and graphs throughout.
Incorporates the essential role of imaging in structural transcatheter interventions, including echocardiography and transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER), and their uses in diagnostic work-up, procedural planning, intra-procedural guidance, and follow-up.
Features dozens of procedural videos, including transthoracic echocardiogram; cardiac MRI for mitral regurgitation; transcatheter mitral valve repair; transcatheter valvuloplasty; percutaneous mitral valve interventions; MitraClip™ positioning; and many more.
Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
Cardiac surgeons who seek a comprehensive understanding of mitral valve disease: the basic clinical science, diagnostic tools, surgical and non-surgical treatments, and pre- and post-op evaluation. There are about 2,500 cardiac surgeons in our audience and a high percentage would want this content. The cardiologist market wouldn’t want this content as desperately as the surgeons, but that audience number is much higher (23k) and would likely see good sales numbers.
