This is an up-to-date, concise and comprehensive textbook in cardiology. The Contributors and Editors of this book are primarily based at the University of Iowa and the University of California, San Francisco, USA, two well-known centers for research and treatment of cardiovascular disease. It has many new and unique features. In the section of “Diagnosis” three-dimensional echocardiography (3D ECHO), cardiac computed tomography (Cardiac CT), cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), molecular imaging and intravascular coronary ultrasound (IVUS) have been discussed by the experts in these fields. The techniques and interpretation of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and stress echocardiography (Stress ECHO) have been discussed in details. In the section of “Electrophysiology”, the basic mechanisms of arrhythmias, the techniques and interpretation of electrophysiologic studies have been discussed along with recent advances in the understanding of the mechanisms and management of supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. The diagnosis and management of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is a unique feature in this section. The advances in the techniques of catheter based ablation have also been discussed. In the section of “Coronary Heart Diseases”, a detailed discussion of global risk burden, burden of cardiovascular diseases, diagnosis and management of right ventricular infarction have been discussed in depth. In the section of “Valvular Heart Diseases”, advances in the catheter based management have been incorporated. In the section of “Heart Failure” advances in the management of systolic and diastolic heart failure, hibernating myocardium and advances in the use of assist devices are unique features of this section. The other highlighting features of this textbook are incorporation of preventive cardiology and the evolving concepts in cardiology. The genomics of cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular pharmacogenetics, stem cell and gene therapy along with complementary therapies in cardiology have been discussed by the experts in their respective fields. Over 1450 color photographs, diagrams and illustrations make the book attractive, easily comprehensible and up-to-date. At the end of every chapter, guidelines from reputed international body have been added, which gives the book a definitive edge over other existing books. This book will continue the tradition of excellent textbooks of cardiology. It will be of great interest not only to the cardiologist but also to all those interested in cardiovascular disease including internists and other specialists.

User’s Review:

I was recently on a committee preparing an ACC report on textbooks for young or new Cardiology practitioners, and older autodidacts brushing up on the latest science for a career change or advance. As a technical editor and volunteer at preptorial dot org, I prepare the exam questions both for their free test banks, and the actual professional exams for credentialing and CME’s/ CPE’s.

This masterful textbook on field of cardiology is 2,600 pages in length, and covers almost every topic you would want to research. More importantly it recognizes that thousands of photographs and diagrams make the text explanations easier to understand. There are two other competing textbooks of comparable length and coverage in the field but their writing style seems far more complex and difficult reading. Dr. Chatterjee is an internationally renowned expert in the field and an excellent teacher. As you would expect from the recipient of the “Gifted Teacher Award” from the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Chatterjee’s presentation on subjects is clear, well organized, and through.
