Dr Rose honoured me with a request for a Foreword. I am delighted to oblige. The treatment of valvular heart disease has improved remarkably in the past 40 years. Many factors have contributed; not least being the introduction of artificial heart valves for treatment, more than 25 years ago. Their use has shown that they are good, but not an ideal substitute for native valves. A galaxy of pathological changes are associated with the insertion and malfunction of artificial heart valves. Each has to be defined, classified and related to clinical procedures or problems with a prosthesis; then a means sought to prevent them. Often, in understanding their cause, investigative procedures have/will improve patient care and broaden knowledge in other spheres. Dr Rose has been a student of this pathology for many years and has made many contributions. No doubt his interest in the area was whetted by colleagues in Cape Town, leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine and surgery. This monograph provides a collected review of his experience. In it one finds lessons in geographic pathology, in considering the causes of valvular heart disease in Cape Town and valuable information regarding the identification of artificial heart valves and a means of examining a heart bearing one.

This book follows the concept of perceiving the entire aorta as one functional organ assuming that all individual pathologies and local interventional procedures affect the up- and downstream segments with consequences for complications and disease progression. Thus any preventive or surgical strategy must recognize the aortic disease in its entirety. The book intends to cover the full spectrum of aortic pathologies, mechanisms and functional interplay. The latest available diagnostic tools and options for surgical treatment are presented by the foremost experts in their field in state-of-the-art reviews. The reader is provided with the most current and comprehensive insight into all fundamental and clinical aspects of aortic disease. All chapters are carefully complemented with figures and illustrations.

Designed to serve as a reference for the evaluation of endomyocardial biopsies, excised cardiac valves and cardiac masses, and biopsies of blood vessels. This atlas presents a collection of over 445 color photographs depicting gross specimens and photomicrographs of cardiovascular disease entities. Topics include differential diagnosis of cardiac tumors, evaluation of benign pericardium and metastatic pericardial disease, surgical pathology of the aorta, and much more. Features broad coverage of the field, including evaluation of endomyocardial biopsy, grading of transplant rejection, evaluation of atherectomy specimens, evaluation and diagnosis of excised cardiac valves, differential diagnosis of cardiac tumours, the evaluation of biopsies for pulmonary hypertension, and an illustrated discussion of the vasculitic syndromes. Depicts gross specimens and photomicrographs of cardiovascular disease with a stunning collection of over 380 colour and 60 black and white photographs. Includeds multiple illustrations of many disease processes. Emphasizes surgical pathology, guiding the reader to the proper interpretation of cardiovascular surgical material and providing a springboard for further investigation. Makes reference easy by discussing pathologic entities by organ and by discussing blood vessels in separate sections on great vessels, pulmonary vasculature, and peripheral vessels.

This updated second edition provides a comprehensive overview of cardiac pathology. Clear illustrations of the common styles of dissection are provided along with the normal anatomy and histology. The chapters cover autopsy heart examination, ischemic heart disease, myocarditis, sudden death, valvular disease, transplant pathology, cardiomyopathy, cardiac neoplasia and congenital heart disease with a clear analysis of diagnostic criteria (macroscopic, microscopic and genetic) for both common cardiac diseases and those of less common types. The text is accompanied by high quality macroscopic and microscopic images and references to other specialty data sources. Cardiac Pathology: A Guide to Current Practice is aimed at established pathologists and trainees, as well as any clinician with an interest in cardiac disease. It will be of value to those working in cardiac surgery, cardiology and those in the autopsy/forensic fields.
