Dr. Adrian Baranchuk, an internationally renowned cardiologist based in Kingston, Ontario has just announced the release of the much-anticipated book: Lyme Carditis from A to Z (Springer).
Dr. Baranchuk has helped physicians and the Lyme community by identifying heart block as a potential and serious life-threatening risk factor of the disease. His book provides valuable tools for the appropriate diagnosis and management of Lyme carditis, detailing guidance for its recognition as the cause of conduction disorders. This allows for early treatment with IV antibiotics, which delivers a high probability of complete resolution and avoids unnecessary pacemaker implantation.
You can learn more about Dr. Baranchuk’s work on the CanLyme podcast Looking at Lyme.
Congratulations to Dr. Baranchuk and his team!
