Advances in Cardiovascular Technology: New Devices and Concepts is a comprehensive reference for cardiovascular devices of all types. For engineers, this book provides a basic understanding of the underlying pathologies and their prevalence/incidence. It also covers what devices are available, how they are used clinically and their impact on pathophysiology. The book presents the constraints imposed on device design and manufacture by the environment in which it is used (eg exposure to tissues within the body and to blood in particular) and the primary requirements for each specific type of device including its durability and resistance to fatigue. For clinicians, this book contains information on the primary engineering challenges, the types of devices available and their advantages and disadvantages, and the (current and emerging) tools and materials available to device designers. How the requirements for a device are specified is also discussed.

Marc Gillinov

Since joining the Cleveland Clinic in 1997, Dr. Marc Gillinov has become one of the nation’s busiest heart surgeons. He is the Chair of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, at Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. He specializes in robotic and minimally-invasive heart valve repair and replacement. His patients range from Academy Award winner Robin Williams to his long-time barber, Vince. A prolific researcher, Dr. Gillinov more than 450 scientific publications to his credit and has been instrumental in the development of medical devices and treatments that enhance the care of cardiac patients. Spurred by patients’ questions, Dr. Gillinov extended his efforts to help people achieve heart health by teaming with Cleveland Clinic cardiologist Dr. Steven Nissen to write the myth-busing book, “Heart 411: The Only Heart Guide You Will Ever Need.” You may also know his as Cleveland’s Own, Fox 8’s “Dr. Marc.” He can be seen on WJW. Dr. Gillinov is thrilled and honored to work with the nation’s number one heart team (27 years in a row!) to improve the heart health of people from around the country and around the world.
