Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gustavo A Cardenas, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The author reviews the most relevant clinical aspects of infective endocarditis in a very didactic fashion. Using a good amount of superb photographs, he illustrates the main features of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, and the contemporary approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infective endocarditis. The author presents all this information, supported by relevant references, in a well-organized, compact, and easy to read atlas of cardiology and infectious diseases.
Purpose: The purpose is to present, in a very didactic way, the current knowledge about infective endocarditis, with an emphasis on its clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, diagnostic approach and treatment.
Audience: This book is intended for physicians of all specialties, pathologists, dentists, microbiologists, technologists of echocardiography and students.
Features: Each of the eight chapters discusses relevant aspects of infective endocarditis, including epidemiology, clinical features, diagnostic investigations, and the current approach to the diagnosis, prevention and management. The photographs are of very good quality and relevant to different characteristics of this entity. The chapters are easy to read and incorporate an informative discussion of the topic along with photographs and/or tables.
Assessment: The author, who is a very experienced cardiologist with recognized interest and expertise in infective endocarditis, succeeds in providing an up-to-date, illustrative, and easy-to-read review of the most relevant aspects of this disease. It encompasses several areas that are of interest to all the specialties in medicine as well as practitioners in other disciplines like microbiology and technology of echocardiography.
