The core information essential for day-to-day clinical practice.

Dr. Topol's best-selling text delivers up-to-the-minute information in the field. 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.
