good geared up, simply navigable, and beautifully illustrated in a panorama layout, this specific textual content invitations the reader on a visible intracardiac trip through beautiful photographs and schematic illustrations, together with such imaging modalities as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, radiography, and 3D mapping. each one bankruptcy the electrophysiology viewpoint with unique descriptions of the anatomic positive aspects proper to a wide selection of arrhythmias, including:

  • Supraventricular tachycardias
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Ventricular arrhythmias

With an summary of common cardiac anatomy, congenital malformations, general catheter positioning, and capability pitfalls, Anatomy for Cardiac Electrophysiologists presents a superb beginning and speedy reference for trainees as they arrange for the realities of the catheter laboratory in addition to a great refresher for knowledgeable operators.

Indd 33 33 6/21/12 1:03 PM OVERVIEW OF ANATOMY AND IMAGING ascending in the groove between the trachea and esophagus. It is in this region that it could be vulnerable to being compressed when the roof of the left atrium is pushed superiorly, for example with a stiff catheter. Pericardial Space and Epicardial Access The heart and its adjoining great vessels are enclosed in a sac, the parietal (fibrous) pericardium. Adherent to the inside of the fibrous pericardium is the parietal layer of the serous pericardium, which reflects to cover the surfaces of the heart and proximal portions of the great vessels as the epicardium and visceral pericardium (the visceral layer), thus enclosing the pericardial cavity between the parietal and visceral layers of the serous pericardium.

7). This can be done by aiming a long needle toward the left mid-clavicle 35 6/21/12 1:03 PM OVERVIEW OF ANATOMY AND IMAGING at an angle of 20° to 30° and advancing it under fluoroscopic guidance to heart shadow. When entering the epicardial space, a small volume (2–3 mL) of clear yellowish fluid, the pericardial fluid, can be aspirated. 8). In some patients, especially after previous cardiac surgery (eg, for bypass grafting), the desired epicardial region might not be reachable by conventional epicardial access.

10 F IG U r This section through the four cardiac chambers includes the aortic root. Atrial myocardium is separated from ventricular myocardium by the tissues of the atrioventricular groove (asterisks). The enlargement shows the membranous septum (arrow) lying between the aortic valve (Ao) and the crest of the muscular ventricular septum. The circle represents the location of the atrioventricular conduction bundle. LA and RA = left and right atrium, respectively; MV and TV = mitral and tricuspid valve, respectively.
