This book presents the most recent advances in the field of cardiology, with emphasis on cardiovascular pathophysiology and new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques used for the management of patients with cardiovascular disease.

Divided into ten sections, the book examines different aspects in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, including key advances in interventional cardiology, innovations in technology, and advances in pharmacotherapy. Implantable cardiac devices and atrial fibrillation are discussed in depth.

Edited by internationally recognised Professor Kanu Chatterjee from the University of Iowa and the University of California San Francisco; and Professor Phillip A Horwitz from the University of Iowa, this comprehensive reference includes nearly 350 images and illustrations to enhance learning.
