About this Textbook

This book presents and describes a series of informative clinical cases with the aim of providing the reader with a clear understanding of the most frequent and challenging scenarios that a cardiologist may face during daily clinical practice. All major topics in modern clinical cardiology are addressed, including acute ischemic heart disease, conditions that mimic ischemic heart disease, heart failure and resynchronization therapy, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias and channelopathies. Guidance is provided on imaging techniques and their interpretation, patient management taking into account potential comorbidities and follow-up appropriate to the clinical circumstances. The paradigmatic clinical cases in this book will serve as a sound basis for learning for medical students, residents and others wishing to meet successfully the challenges posed by cardiac disease. In addition, the book will be a very useful reference for the more experienced cardiologist.

Reviews

“This is a collection of clinical cases covering a broad range of topics in cardiology, including ischemic heart disease, heart failure, and electrophysiology. … It is aimed especially at early career cardiologists, cardiology fellows in training, and general practitioners. … This will be an excellent reference for clinicians in training across a range of fields including both cardiology and general practice. The clinical, case-based format will be particularly helpful to those in training.” (Jennifer A. Davis, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
