Book Description

This straightforward guide to the recognition and management of ischemic heart disease provides clinically relevant information needed by today’s medical practitioners. The book covers the disease’s epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostic tests, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Topics include detection of myocardial ischemia/infarction, silent myocardial ischemia, chronic arrythmias and conduction disorders, left ventricular dysfunction, percutaneous coronary intervention, and coronary artery bypass surgery. The authors also discuss primary prevention and management strategies. High-quality color photographs, line diagrams, and radiographs enhance the text.
