Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Wade Bolton May, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This multiauthored adjunct to Braunwald's Heart Disease provides a detailed analysis of the field of hypertension, offering a variety of viewpoints on treatment.
Purpose: The book aims to provide a fairly in-depth review of the current science regarding hypertension. It presents different perspectives from various authors which are intended to serve as a reference and to allow readers to make their own conclusions regarding therapy.
Audience: Clinical cardiologists and cardiologists-in-training are the intended audience.
Features: The book addresses a wide range of topics ranging from epidemiology and diagnosis to specific treatments and special situations. Guidelines from North America and Europe are discussed with an explanation of key differences. A unique aspect of this book is the inclusion of four chapters dealing with risk stratification of hypertensive patients. Each class of antihypertensive agents is discussed in its own chapter. Sections also cover comorbid conditions as well as outcome studies.
Assessment: This elegant reference is a great accompaniment to Braunwald. It includes information on specific pharmacology of drugs and detailed descriptions of pathophysiology.
