Overview

This companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease equips you with all of today's most effective therapeutic guidelines and management solutions for the full range of heart disease patients. It reflects the most recent standards for drug management as well as the latest in new technologies. Reorganized to mirror your changing practice, each cardiovascular-problem-based section offers a chapter on pharmacologic treatment (with a minimum of pathophysiology)...a chapter on catheter-based or minimally invasive interventions...and a discussion of surgical options. You'll also find a brand-new chapter on gene therapy and stem cell therapy, plus new chapters on many other rapidly developing areas of practice. The result is an outstanding single-volume source for state-of-the-art, clinically oriented guidance on both common and unusual areas of cardiovascular treatment.
  • Facilitates the decision-making process clinicians face when choosing among various cardiovascular therapeutic options.
  • covers the latest concepts in pathophysiology, evaluation, and management of patients with cardiovascular disorders
  • Addresses pharmacological, interventional, and surgical management approaches for each type of cardiovascular disease, putting advice on the full range of therapeutic options at your disposal.
  • Keeps you current with brand-new chapters on gene therapy and stem cell therapy
    • unstable and chronic stable angina
    • management of unstable angina and non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
    • devices for heart failure and arrhythmias
    • prevention of ischemic disease
    • the regulatory approval process for new cardiovascular drugs and devices
    • and more.
  • Delivers a fully revised section on "Heart Failure" that explores cardiac resynchronization therapy, surgical interventions, ambulatory management, hospital management, and cardiac transplantation and circulatory support devices.
  • Offers a completely updated section on "Other Cardiovascular Conditions" that addresses issues such as pharmacologic treatment of cardiovascular disease during pregnancy
    • care for adults with congenital heart disease

The studies that provide evidence for each treatment option are presented and complex concepts are communicated effectively with the use of charts, diagrams, and graphics.

This will be an invaluable tool for those interested in the management of cardiovascular disease."- Geoffrey Lewis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody Rating!

Reviewer: Geoffrey F Lewis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: A companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 9th edition, Bonow et al. (Elsevier, 2011), this book focuses on treatment options. Each section focuses on a particular disease process and presents the most recent treatment recommendations including pharmacological, interventional, and surgical techniques.

Purpose: It presents an evidence-based approach to the management of patients with cardiovascular disease..
Audience: It is intended for students, physicians in training, allied healthcare providers, cardiologists, internists, and primary care physicians. The book will be most beneficial for cardiologists, as certain sections are applicable to their specialized practice. Others will also appreciate the sections focusing on medical management and preventive care for patients with cardiovascular disease.
Features: Chapters deal with a specific diagnosis and provide a comprehensive discussion of options for management including drugs, interventions, and surgery. The studies that provide evidence for each treatment option are presented and complex concepts are communicated effectively with the use of charts, diagrams, and graphics.
