Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jack Stanko, MS, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is a companion to Braunwald's major text, Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, which focuses on cardiovascular therapeutics. It is well organized by disease states and cross-referenced both internally as well as with Braunwald's text.
Purpose: The intent is to provide clinicians with a "practical and evidence-based approach to the optimal management of specific clinical problems" within the realm of cardiovascular diseases. This approach is in lieu of the usual organization based on therapeutic modalities. This refreshing approach is maintained throughout the text.
Audience: The primary audience is cardiologists, but it will serve well those internists and primary care physicians who manage complex cardiovascular patients in their practices. It will also be a great asset to cardiology fellows, especially in preparation for CV boards. The book is authored by an astute group of well-experienced academicians.
Features: The book is of moderate length (750 pages), but it is easy to read. It is exceptionally well-organized into short, concise chapters; each chapter is packed with excellent diagrams and tables. Most useful and frequently seen are the treatment algorithms.
Assessment: This is a well-written, current reference on cardiovascular therapeutics that is an ideal companion to Dr. Braunwald's classic text. It is an excellent review of the treatments for heart disease and gives many practical insights on how to optimally manage these complex patients. It is MUST reading for practicing physicians and cardiology fellows and will be time well spent.
