Pearls in Hemodynamics

A JSCAI Series

Edited by Larry S. Dean, MD, and Morton J. Kern, MD, this series of vignettes highlights points in the fundamental mechanisms of pressure and flow in the cardiovascular system as well as present unusual cases illustrating how a "pearl" of knowledge can change our thinking and potentially improve patient care.


We hope to expand the Pearls in Hemodynamics collection with case studies that amplify the importance of understanding invasive hemodynamics. We invite the submission of illustrative case examples so that others can learn as we all strive to provide the best care for our patients.
