Stunning is potentially an important complication of myocardial reperfusion. In contrast, hibernation is an important complication of myocardial ischemia. This book presents different viewpoints on these subjects, taken from a series of peer-reviewed articles which first appeared in Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy, and now in this book. In addition, a certain number of articles were directly invited for the book. The introductory article is by Eugene Braunwald, who with Kloner introduced the term myocardial stunning in 1982. The experimental phenomenon had first been described by Heyndrickx et al. This important concept of stunning is examined from a number of points of view in a series of articles which clarify the experimental causes and the clinical implications. The section on hibernation is introduced by Tubau and Rahimtoola, the latter having first propounded the concept in 1989. The difference between stunning and hibernation is that stunning is essentially a post-ischemic dysfunction of the myocardium, temporary in nature, occurring at a time when coronary blood flow is apparently normal or supranormal. Hibernation, on the other hand, is a condition of reduced contractile activity, the direct result of chronic ischemia and hence a sign of a tolerable reduction in blood flow. Possibly the reduction in contractile activity of the hibernating heart balances the reduction in the oxygen availability (the `smart heart' of Rahimtoola). This non-contractile heart is hibernating, awaiting the return of summer after winter, and willing to contract normally again whenever warm coronary blood is restored. It is certain that the concepts of stunning and hibernation are here to stay, that they have or will have clinical relevance, and that the search for the most appropriate diagnosis and therapy for each condition is now under way. Hence, a greater understanding of the experimental work which underlies these two conditions is highly appropriate.

The three biggest trends in weddings today are simplicity, personalization, and color. Wedding design expert Karen Bussen highlights these elements as she shows couples how to design their own weddings without going crazy or broke. Simple Stunning Weddings is the first wedding design book to focus on the where of the wedding. Location is the first and most important decision brides and grooms must make: everything else flows from that. Bussen showcases 12 popular wedding settings, including the city loft, country inn, art gallery, botanic garden, and private club, and demonstrates how to make them extraordinary. With the site as the starting point, she creates unifying themes with color, flowers, and personal touches. She explains how to deal with vendors, how to spend the wedding budget, and when it makes sense to hire a specialist. Sharing all her trade secrets, Bussen teaches the power of simplicity and the impact of color, which can be tailored to any budget, always to stunning effect: substituting cotton tablecloths for silk in the same eye-dazzling color combinations, for example, or creating striking flower arrangements using only one or two types of blooms. Whether for a barefoot union on a beach or a formal affair in a hotel ballroom, this fully illustrated, information-filled book is like having Bussen on hand as your personal wedding designer.
