Overview

This thoroughly updated Second Edition of Dr. Topol's best-selling text delivers up-to-the-minute information in an innovative format—a book fully integrated with an interactive multimedia CD-ROM. Renowned international authorities provide a comprehensive, contemporary view of every area of cardiovascular medicine, integrating evidence-based practice guidelines, clinical outcomes data, medical economics, and breakthrough advances in molecular medicine and genetics.

Eight sections cover preventive cardiology; clinical cardiology; cardiovascular imaging; electrophysiology and pacing; invasive cardiology and surgical techniques; heart failure and transplantation; molecular cardiology; and vascular biology and medicine. Each chapter includes frank, authoritative comments on current controversies and pioneering insights into future developments. This edition features a completely revised section on invasive cardiology and surgical techniques and updated information on drugs, devices, and genetics. Four new chapters discuss end-of-life care...medical errors and quality of care in cardiovascular medicine...percutaneous coronary intervention...and new techniques in interventional cardiology: radiation, emboli protection, and PMR.

The book contains the core information that is essential for day-to-day clinical practice. The CD-ROM contains expanded versions of these chapters—plus 18 additional chapters...full-color images...heart sounds...and approximately 250 angio and echo loops. Icons in the book guide the reader to the electronic material.
