Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book, written mostly by a group from the United Kingdom, is aiming for a "comprehensive review" of heart disease in old age. The same authors edited a book about heart disease in older persons in 1984.
Purpose: The purpose, to provide a comprehensive review of heart disease in old age, is useful because heart disease is the number one killer of older persons. However, this goal is only partially fulfilled because some of the chapters are not specifically about heart disease in older persons.
Audience: Trainees and practitioners of geriatrics and cardiology will find this book of use; it may also be useful for primary care physicians. Those seeking a European perspective of heart disease in old age will find it a useful summary.
Features: This book features particularly clear and useful illustrations and photographs. The references, especially to European literature on heart disease in old age, are well cited.
Assessment: The unevenness of the chapters of this book detract from its usefulness. Some chapters dealing specifically with how heart disease is different in old age from a younger population are quite good. These chapters summarize the European perspective and provide references for those seeking more detailed information. Other chapters are superficial.

A comprehensive review that caters to an international population by representing differences in approaches to the management of heart disease in older people between continents and countries. The volume contains 35 contributed chapters grouped in seven sections: fundamentals of aging; examination; pathophysiology of aging; systematic diseases; syndromes; major elements of therapy; and research into heart disease in old age.
