Overview

Along with a strong focus on patient care the new Hurst's The Heart includes a new look and organization. Each chapter has been systematically overhauled with an emphasis on streamlining the content for a focused presentation of the LATEST THERAPEUTIC STRATEGIES and the EVIDENCE-BASED DATA that support them. CLINICAL GUIDELINES are included to equip you with the critical information for optimal patient care in an increasingly time-pressured, cost/benefit environment.

The major changes that await you in the tenth edition of The Heart start with the dynamic new author team. Led by Valentin Fuster, Wayne Alexander and Robert A. O'Rourke, the editors have assembled an international group of thought leaders in cardiology who are distinguished not only by their academic prowess, but also by their clinical expertise. They know the latest treatment approaches because they practice them daily and document them here for you with precision.

The New 10th Edition of Hurst's The Heart is dramatically revised, and uniquely focused on the evolving demands of your daily practice:
