Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system.
The diagnosis of these unique cardiac complications necessitates medical awareness and a high index of suspicion. The book aims at providing the readers with a state-of-the-art collection of up-todate information regarding clinically important topics based on experts’ perspectives.
This book is the result of an extended coordinated collaboration of 154 distinguished scientists from 31 countries around the globe.
• A review of common as well as unusual (yet clinically significant) medical cardiac complications of prevalent rheumatic, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
• Focuses on aspects of pathophysiological processes, clinical presentations, screening tests, prognostic implications and novel therapeutic approaches.
• Presents an up-to-date “level of evidence” and “strengths of recommendations” for suggested therapies and reviews all randomized clinical trials, meta-analyses and other supporting published clinical findings.
