Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice
Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice, 3rd Edition, blends molecular, cellular, and physiologic concepts with current clinical practice and provides up-to-date information on all major aspects of cardiovascular disease. Fully revised by an international panel of leading authorities in the field, it is an authoritative resource for cardiologists, internists, residents, and students. The book presents the clinical examination of the patient, including diagnostic testing and cutting-edge radiologic imaging; pathogenesis and treatment of various types of cardiac abnormalities; the needs of special populations, including pregnant, elderly, and renal-compromised patients; cardiovascular gene and cell therapy; and preventive cardiology. It includes new chapters on cardiovascular disease in women; diabetes and the cardiovascular system; and cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy. The Third Edition also focuses on the substantial advances in anti-platelet and anticoagulant therapy; new modalities of cardiac imaging; new anti-arrhythmic drugs; and a sophisticated understanding of vascular biology and atherogenesis.
From the reviews of the third edition:
“Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice is an excellent reference book for cardiology trainees. It covers almost all of the topics and situations one may encounter in clinical practice and many topics that are missed in similar text books. … It is an up-to-date book with constant references to clinical trials and further references at the end of each chapter for those wishing to expand their knowledge further.” (H. Randula Haththotuwa, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 75
