About this book


Though recent years have witnessed numerous technical innovations and advances in the treatment of patients with cardiac arrhythmias, general cardiologists and primary care physicians may not be fully aware of all these advances. In Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias, Leonard I. Ganz, MD, and a panel of leading electrophysiologists provide not only an overview of arrhythmia management, but also a comprehensive description of the new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies now available. In addition to coverage of the atrial fibrillation ablation, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, prevention of sudden cardiac death, and syncope, the physician will find cutting-edge clinical discussions about radiofrequency catheter ablation of supraventricular tachycardia, pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment of atrial fibrillation, pacemakers, and the management of atrial flutter. There are also state-of-the-art chapters on treating patients with ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation, cardiac arrhythmias during acute myocardial infarction, arrhythmias in pediatric patients, and arrhythmias during pregnancy. Comprehensive and authoritative, Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias provides cardiologists, internists, and family physicians with an indispensable reference and clinical guide to all the contemporary and newly emerging treatments for patients with arrhythmias.
