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.

"This landmark volume, with contributions from 160 leading, international experts, covers every essential aspect of con- temporary cardiology from molecular genetics, to preventive cardiology, to state-of-the-art interventional techniques."

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
The hard copy of the core material is integrated with a CD-ROM that contains material critical to providing a complete reference source. Topics include preventive and clinical cardiology, cardiovascular imaging, electrophysiology and pacing, invasive cardiology and surgical techniques, heart failure and transplantation, molecular cardiology, and vascular biology and medicine. Almost all of the 112 chapters have been updated for this new edition, and the text includes new information on end-of-life care, athlete's heart, clinical assessment of the autonomic nervous system, percutaneous coronary intervention, surgical considerations in treatment of heart failure, gene therapy, and molecular basis of heart development. Edited by Eric J. Topol (cardiovascular medicine, The Cleveland Clinic), with contributions by an extensive number of cardiologists. Illustrated with b&w images. Annotation c.
