  Purpose: Ventricular dyssynchrony plays a major role in the pathogenesis and progression of heart failure. This book covers this very important topic, its identification, and the role of cardiac resynchronization therapy in treating patients with heart : $   This new edition of the successful Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy builds on the strengths of the first edition, providing basic knowledge as well as an up-to-date summary of new advances in CRT for heart failure.   Heart failure is the fastest growing cardiovascular diagnosis in North America, and it carries a poor prognosis.1, 2 To improve survival in heart failure patients, therapies need to reduce either sudden cardiac death (the most common cause of death in patients with New York Heart Association [NYHA] Class I or II symptoms) or progressive heart failure Cited by: 1. Written by noted experts with day-to-day experience in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), this comprehensive, practical reference gives physicians a thorough knowledge of the indications, techniques for implantation, complications, programming, and follow-up of CRT devices in patients with heart failure Brand: Wolters Kluwer Health.

Therefore, treatment of heart failure is a primary focus of cardiovascular disease management strategies. Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy provides basic knowledge about congestive heart failure but also covers the evolution of cardiac resynchronization therapy Price: $ Cleland JGF, Daubert J-C, Erdmann E, Freemantle N, Gras D, Kappenberger L, et al.
