Overview

The Editors have assembled a respected international panel of contribu tors so that each chapter is authored by a well-known specialist in hi s or her field. Every attempt was made to avoid the fragmentation whic h often characterizes the digest approach. Because the constant flow o f information makes it nearly impossible to construct a timely book on advances in cardiology, the chapters in this volume describe the curr ent concepts in cardiology and their underlying rationale, rather than attempting a comprehensive review of the most recent papers in each d iscipline.
