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 specialized therapies and cardiac transplantation. The 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 condition. Key areas of focus are the immunology and hemodynamic alterations characteristic of advanced stages of heart failure; device therapy including left and right ventricular assist devices; cardiac resynchronization therapy; implantable cardioverter defibrillators; and implantable monitoring devices. 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.
