This proposed text is designed to provide a useful and comprehensive resource and state-of-the-art overview to readers about vascular damage potentially induced by antineoplastic drugs. Thanks to more and more effective antineoplastic treatments the survival of cancer patients is enormously increasing, but at the same time it is increasing the burden of related cardiovascular complications that affect morbidity and mortality. On this basis a new branch of cardiology has been developed, that is Cardio-Oncology. The aim is to prevent cardiovascular complications related to cancer therapy and to facilitate and avoid interruption of antineoplastic drugs due to the occurrence of cardiovascular damage. An increasing attention has been given to cardiac damage, while, until today, vascular complications have been poorly evaluated. The aim of this book is to focus on vascular complications related to cancer treatment, to guide the clinician at facing, during his every day practice, cardiovascular toxicity in cancer and hematologic patients. The proposed sections of the book have been structured to review the molecular mechanisms underlying vascular damage induced by new and old treatments, to describe the various manifestations of vascular disease that may range from artery to venous disease (including coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, venous thromboembolism and pulmonary hypertension), and to provide advice to monitor patients undergoing onco-hematologic treatments in order to prevent and eventually manage vascular damage.This book will address resident and fellow physicians, medical oncologists, cardiologists, general practitioners and all those who take care of these patients.All invited authors will be recognized experts in their field, and leading international researchers on these topics. The editor has worked with these expert colleagues on a variety of other projects. The authors will provide their manuscript according to current literature and clinical research studies. The book does not seek to duplicate or replace other current resources. Rather, it will create a comprehensive yet concise resource on this emerging topic that is not adequately covered by any current literature.

In recent years considerable progress and new developments in diagnostic and interventional cardiology have been observed, such as balloon angioplasty of coronary artery stenoses, reperfusion techniques in acute myocardial infarction, new pacing, and cardioversion-defibrillation techniques in ventricular tachyar rhythmias. On 5-8 May, 1985, an international symposium on 'Invasive Cardio vascular Therapy' was held in Cologne, which provided a survey on the experi ment~l and routine therapeutic measures presently available and practiced in cardiovascular medicine. This volume is based on the oral presentations given during the symposium. In five chapters the most important traditional and new interventional techniques are discussed by experts in the field. Chapter I contains a description of results from catheter palliation of congeni tal shunt disorders or relief of congenital pulmonary or aortic valve stenoses as well as the recent experience with surgical repair of single ventricle, Fallot's tetralogy and tricuspid atresia. Chapter II presents the surgical results of valve replacement with different valve prostheses in acquired valvular disease, the surgical management of bacte rial endocarditis, as well as the various techniques of partial transient left heart support devices and of cardiac transplantation. In chapter III, the invasive management of chronic coronary heart disease, peripheral vascular disease by balloon catheter or laser techniques, and the surgical approach to coronary heart disease are discussed.

Cardiac therapy has become ever more complex during the past quarter century. For example, 25 years ago, the therapy of cardiac failure was largely limited to digitalis, a very few diuretics, salt restriction, and general supportive measures. Antiarrhythmic therapy involved - in the main - quinidine, procainamide, and digitalis, and questions such as which arrhythmia to treat and how to measure drug efficacy had been addressed in elementary fashion only. Cardiac surgery was limited largely to congenital and valvular heart disease; the areas of cardiac pacemaker therapy, defibrillation and other forms of electrical diagnosis and therapy were rudimentary. The expansion of support of cardiovascular research by the National Institutes of Health as well as by institutional sources following World War II has led to major successes in clinical health care delivery and improved technology made available to clinical investigators. In reviewing progress over the past 25 years, we have been particularly impressed by one observation: this is the important interaction that has developed between studies of pathophysiology and the delivery of appropriate cardiac therapy.

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is one of the most exciting new advances in the treatment of chronic severe (NYHA symptom class) heart failure associated with dyssynchronous ventricular contraction that is refractory to medical treatment. In all randomized trials CR has resulted in improved NYHA symptom class, exercise capacity and quality of life in the majority of patients as compared to patients on optimal medical therapy including angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE)/angiotensin receptor blocker inhibitor (ARB) and b adrenergic receptor blockers. These symptomatic benefits are mediated by "reverse remodeling" of the left ventricle, that is reduction in volume, regression of LV mass, improvement in ejection fraction and severity of mitral regurgitation induced by synchronization of ventricular contraction. This new text is edited by 5 experts in heart failure, electrophysiology and non-invasive cardiac imaging and is extensively illustrated with high quality figures and examples of clinical cases. The purpose of the book is to put into perspective this novel therapy with regards to traditional heart failure treatment and to provide criteria for identifying patients likely to have an optimal and sustained response to CRT using a practical "how to" approach. This text begins by describing the background and evolution of the technique to the current implementation and the impact of complications on clinical outcome. There are chapters describing "cutting edge" Doppler echocardiography for assessing dyssynchrony, reverse remodeling and triaging patients into those with greatest likelihood of responding to CRT with illustrative clinical case examples. There is a full description of the results of all the randomized clinical trials and a number of chapters discussing the need for concomitant internal cardiac defibrillator (ICD), special circumstances such as atrial fibrillation, right bundle branch block, left ventricular lead placement and etiology of heart failure with clinical case examples for each.
