Heart failure is the biggest killer in the western world, and the prevalence is expected to increase due to aging of the population. Over the past decade there has been an increasing awareness of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction as a mechanism of congestive heart failure. This book provides the clinician with essential insights into the epidemiology and aetiology of diastolic heart failure, and will enable them to understand how the condition can be diagnosed. Furthermore, the book will provide insights in cardiac function that are needed to perform and interpret the diagnostic tests, and to provide some guides to treatment choices.

From the Back Cover:

The prevalence of heart failure is increasing and yet a significant proportion of these patients have normal left ventricular (LV) systolic function. In these patients with diastolic dysfunction, heart failure is frequently referred to as diastolic heart failure. While the majority of research into heart failure has concentrated on those patients with LV systolic dysfunction, heart failure patients with preserved systolic function have been grossly underinvestigated. It is critical not only to continue to research and treat those patients with LV systolic dysfunction but also to investigate the possibilities in those patients with diastolic dysfunction with a view to providing tailored management of heart failure for all patients.

This book is the first to give a comprehensive overview not only of the diastolic heart failure, but also of different aspects of LV diastolic function in general. It addresses the epidemiology, pathophysiologic mechanisms, diagnostic methods, treatment and prognosis. It also gives an analysis of specific problems, related to coronary artery disease, arterial hypertension, diabetes, hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathies, and constrictive pericarditis.

The aim of the Editors and their world-class panel of contributing authors has been not only to summarize the existing knowledge on the role of diastolic dysfunction in heart failure but also to identify the gaps in the understanding of the problem and stimulate discussion in these areas. Consequently, this book will prove useful for both basic scientists and clinicians involved in research and clinical care of patients with heart failure. As such, cardiologists, internists and all disciplines involved in the management of this group of patients will benefit from reading this book.

Review:

From the reviews:

"This review of the physiology of diastolic function and the pathology of diastolic heart failure focuses on diagnosis by noninvasive means. ... appropriate primarily for clinicians, but is suitable for scientists as well. In my opinion, the book will be used by noninvasive cardiologists, heart failure specialists, and fellows training in general cardiology. ... Overall, this is an excellent compilation of well referenced and individual essay type reviews ... . I will use it extensively when lecturing on the topic ... ." (Christopher J. White, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2008)

"Diastolic Heart Failure reviews all the important issues that are related to this disease. It is a superb book. ... a well-written, readable, and concise yet comprehensive book that covers all the important aspects of diastolic heart failure. Included are remarkably contemporary reviews of different aspects of noninvasive and invasive evaluation of diastolic function. ... The editors of this book are to be complimented for a timely and comprehensive review of a topic whose importance will continue to grow." (Gerard P. Aurigemma, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2008)
