About this book


This book provides a case-based overview of aortic stenosis including pathophysiology, presentation, diagnosis with both invasive, and multimodality noninvasive techniques, and how to approach management options in the multidisciplinary setting. It provides both an assessment of challenging cases that appear to be complex in terms of determining the true severity of aortic stenosis as well as a review of current available treatment options, such as valvuloplasty, transcatheter, and surgical valve replacement techniques.

Written by an international team of renowned cardiologists, surgeons and scientists, Aortic Stenosis: Case-Based Diagnosis and Therapy is essential for individuals in the structural heart disease field, including cardiac surgeons, interventional and imaging cardiologists, and cardiology fellows.
