The result is a rigorous examination of the implications of published guidance, illustrated by more than 600 easy-to-follow tables and 200 full-colour images, which reinforce key points and clarify difficult concepts.
87 comprehensive chapters explore the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of cardiac disease. Two new chapters examine the univentricular heart and venous thrombembolism. Each chapter encompasses the latest published research, followed by discussions of possible presentations and investigations, offering detailed insights for clinicians into best practice for diagnosis and treatment.
Providing at-a-glance access to the best guidance in cardiology, this book offers a diagnosis and management toolkit which no practising cardiologist can afford to be without.
