<i>Feline Cardiology</i> is the first book dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in cats.  Designed for use in clinical practice, this reference combines cutting-edge information with practical applications, using a consistent format for ease of use.  <i>Feline Cardiology</i> provides detailed, species-specific information that is absent from other texts, with an emphasis on the most commonly encountered feline cardiovascular diseases. <p> Drawing on the expertise of four internationally recognized authors, the book is packed with state-of-the-art information within the framework of daily practice.  Coverage ranges from basic and advanced treatment approaches for cardiomyopathies, arrhythmias, and many other disorders to the newest information on genetic testing, circulating markers of heart disease, and more.  <i>Feline Cardiology</i> provides a comprehensive single resource to managing cardiovascular disease in cats and is a welcome addition to any small animal practice library.
This title reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms contributing to heart failure. Editor Richard Walsh and an internationally renowned team of contributors discuss key advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology, focusing on advances that have a direct bearing on current clinical studies. It highlights developments across a broad range of disciplines, with in-depth coverage of each topic providing background and perspective on current literature. By setting new advances in a broader context, this text allows readers to compare different ideas and evaluate their importance in their own areas of research or clinical practice.
This book is a comprehensive atlas that covers the potential complications for the full range of interventional procedures. The emphasis throughout is on a practical, useful presentation with an "atlas" type of format. Each complication is presented first with a case example: case description; how it was dealt with; why it happened; and a discussion of whether and how it could have been avoided in this case. Following is a broader presentation providing more context on why the specific complication may occur; how to anticipate it; how to avoid or minimize it if possible and how to address it if it occurs. The book is concise and presents information in bulleted format, for efficient learning and quick clinical reference. The book includes a companion DVD of the video loops of the procedures.Complications of Interventional Cardiovascular Procedures Features: Practical bullet point presentation, easy to learn from or review before procedures are performed Hundreds of high quality images Editors and contributors are internationally recognized interventional experts Companion DVD of video loops for the procedures
This book provides an outline and a critique of neo-Gramscian international relations theory, from a Marxist perspective.
Focusing on the pioneering work of Robert Cox, but also drawing on the wider neo-Gramscian literature, this book presents a comprehensive account of neo-Gramscian international relations theory. It highlights the neo-Gramscian critique of mainstream Realist theory and the theoretical innovations that resulted from the mobilisation of Gramsci's ideas and Cox's emphasis on the social forces underpinning forms of state and world orders. The author explains how this is especially relevant in the current period of war and crisis, when the international dimensions of social existence continue to exercise a major influence over 'domestic' politics and economics, and when the interest in Marxism can be expected to grow. The book continues to provide a critique of the neo-Gramscians and of what the author argues is their one-sided reading of Gramsci. Placing coercion at the centre of a mode of production analysis of world order, the author elaborates a Marxist alternative to neo-Gramscianism that provides more robust explanations of world order dynamics and change.
Using a combination of IR theory and historical explanation, including of contemporary world order dynamics and US power, this book will appeal to both students and scholars of International Relations, international studies, and international history.
Growing experimental evidence is beeing produced in support of the thesis that lipid pe, oxidation is an important mediator of both vascular and myocardial tissue derangement. Although the role of the free-radical system in human cardiovascular pathology remains speculative, nevertheless the potential implications of such a system in both pharmacological therapy and prevention of major cardiovascular diseases, such as myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy and arrhythmias, justify the increasing interest of clinical cardiologists in this research area. Furthermore, present-day clinical cardiology permits to reproduce in man such experimental models as ischemia and reperfusion, e.g. during percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, and even to gain histological and histochemical access to byoptic myocardial tissue. Upon above premises the idea of a multidisciplinary discussion meeting was conceived, aimed to confront clinical expectations with acquired basic information, and to discuss the validity of experimental models in the light of pathological and clinical findings in man. To this purpose, a unique group of experts in the field of free-radicals, from all over the world, was asked to make the topic accessible to clinical cardiologists, with the primary aim of projecting results and ideas towards potential clinical research; this is, in fact, the object of the European Concerted Action "Breakdown in Human Adaptation - Cardiovascular Diseases," in the frame of which the meeting was held
