Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Krista K. Graven, M.D.(University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the second edition of a comprehensive review of pulmonary vascular disease. The book was first published in 1996.
Purpose: This book presents what is known about the pulmonary circulation in a clinically relevant fashion. It is written especially with the busy clinician in mind and provides an extensive review of all aspects of this topic. The book provides a much needed update and clearly meets the author's objectives.
Audience: According to the authors, this book is geared to busy clinicians including those practicing in respiratory medicine, cardiology, pediatrics, and intensive care. It is not only an excellent reference for clinicians, but it is also a valuable reference for fellows or residents interested in pulmonary circulation. The editors and numerous authors are leading authorities in the field.
Features: This book is quite comprehensive in its coverage of pulmonary circulation, including pathophysiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of all related disorders. Each chapter ends with a section entitled "Key Points" which is particularly useful for busy clinicians. The manner in which each chapter is written provides practical points as well as detailed information if needed. Five chapters have been added and provide new insights regarding pathobiology, treatment, and associated diseases. The color plates are high quality and add value to the text. One slight shortcoming that cannot be avoided is that in this rapidly emerging field, new treatment regimens are continually being evaluated and some of the latest results have not made it into this edition.
Assessment: This is an excellent and comprehensive book on pulmonary circulation. It provides a wealth of information for practicing physicians involved in treating patients with pulmonary vascular disease. It is a much needed update to the first edition particularly because it reviews new concepts regarding the pathophysiology of these diseases, new treatment options, and various associated conditions.
