Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arindam Banerjee, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a well-organized, comprehensive review of aortic dissection.
Purpose: The purpose is to contribute to a better understanding of aortic dissection and to stimulate research in this area.
Audience: The book targets clinicians and researchers involved in the management of patients with cardiovascular disorders and requires in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the heart and aorta. Familiarity with CT, MRI, and echocardiography also is needed.
Features: Logically organized into six sections, the book covers pathophysiology/clinical features, imaging, treatment, follow-up/surveillance, special subsets, and future. The section on imaging is excellent, due to helpful illustrations and explanations of actual CT, MRI, and echocardiogram images.
Assessment: This is an easy-to-read, comprehensive review of aortic dissection and is a useful resource for those interested in this disorder.
