Case Studies in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology,
Edition 1
By John M. Miller, MD, Mithilesh K. Das, MD and Douglas P. Zipes, MD

Publication Date: 21 Feb 2017

Keeping up with the use of new technologies in cardiology is becoming increasingly challenging. Case Studies in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology helps to bridge the gap between knowledge and application with 28 cases spanning both common and uncommon arrhythmias and ablation scenarios, each of which includes the clinical presentation, baseline ECG, ECG during arrhythmia, stepwise electrophysiologic diagnostic maneuvers and some of their pitfalls, and optimal therapy. Online access to the complete contents ensures the information you need is right at your fingertips.

Key Features

  • Includes 28 cases spanning the spectrum of what an electrophysiologist is likely to see in practice.
  • Shows the correct way of conducting procedures, as well as "detours" that an unwary practitioner may take: misdiagnoses and why they are wrong; incorrect therapeutic choices and why these may be not only unsuccessful but even harmful.
  • Encourages you to read and interpret the ECGs, mapping diagrams, and other diagnostic information before revealing the expert opinion or actual results of each case.
  • Summarizes the key learning points in each case.
  • Discusses potential procedural complications, including anticipation, avoidance, recognition, and response and resolution.
  • Covers complex ablations (atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia) as well as prior failed ablations.
  • Expert Consult eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, images, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
