The fourth edition of IMayo Clinic Cardiology: Concise Textbook continues the tradition of all previous editions: a succinct yet comprehensive teaching and learning textbook rather than an overwhelming reference work. This new edition continues to bridge the gap between currently availabletexts: more than a bare-bones compilations of lists of facts that do not address the fundamental concepts of the practice of cardiology and not so encyclopedic a tome that it goes into the minute detail of a traditional reference work.Organized to present a comprehensive overview of the field of cardiology in an accessible, reader-friendly format that can be covered in about 12 months, this new edition contains roughly 50% new material, the cardiac pharmacology section has been completely reworked, cardiovascular trials have beenincluded, and the entire book has been updated to reflect current practice guidelines and recent developments. The book is peppered throughout with numerous tables and clinical pearls that aid the student, as well as the teacher, to remain focused.Mayo Clinic Cardiology is based on the original syllabus for the Mayo Cardiovascular Review Course, one of the premiere teaching courses in cardiology in the United States. The content evolves entirely from Mayo Clinic physicians and reflects the expert cardiovascular care provided, from commonconditions to those that are very rare, even more tertiary referral centers.
Editorial Reviews: Review “Mayo Clinic Cardiology: Concise Textbook edited by Dr. Joe Murphy and Dr. Margaret Lloyd has again redefined the art of boiling down overwhelming concepts in a merciful manner for practicing cardiologists. With plain dialogue complemented by diagrams and tables, residents and fellows can build a solid knowledge base in cardiovascular disease, as well as prepare for board exams. I would strongly recommend this textbook as a learning tool and reference to guide your cardiology practice.” — Carmelo Panetta, MD, HealthEast Heart Care, St Paul, MN “I first became familiar with Mayo Clinic Cardiology when reviewing for my first recertification exam in Cardiology. One of my cardiology fellows leant me a copy of the First Edition. It was extremely easy to read, and I felt prepared for the recertification exam. I again used this textbook, Third Edition, for my second recertification exam… The Fourth Edition, much like the Third Edition, reaches an excellent balance of being comprehensive while remaining extremely readable… It is an excellent resource for anyone preparing for certification or recertification in cardiology. I would recommend a cardiology fellow devote six months to reading the textbook cover to cover. They will find it well worth the time invested. The practicing cardiologist will be able to cover the text book in a month. They will find it both an excellent review and an efficient way to learn new information. — Howard Kurz, MD, FACC, Cardiovascular Division, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO”Congratulations to the editors and their esteemed group of authors on an excellent new edition that is a comprehensive, up to date, and state of the art textbook on the entire spectrum of cardiovascular medicine and disorders. This book could serve as essential reading material for internal medicine residents and, particularly, trainees in cardiovascular diseases, including for preparation for board exams.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐I used an older version of this for initial board certification (and liked it) but won’t be using it much for recertification. My study method has changed since then – I study at my computer now. Many textbooks are providing online resources – some good, some bad. This one’s online interface is not good. By comparison, the ACCSAP allows the user to save and edit a PDF version of the book. This means you can highlight and take notes in the text. With the Mayo book that is impossible, as you are only allowed to download a PDF version of a single chapter.ACCSAP is more expensive, of course, but for me the ability to use my computer is pretty important, and worth the extra cost in this case.
⭐Book arrived on time, excellent condition, and book is very instructive and accurate. Quite pleased.
⭐Figures are great, some chapters really good, like the one on infective endocarditis. There are no references, which is very bad. Some chapters are incredibly bad, with completely wrong informations on ACC/ ESC point of views on some topics.
⭐I was reading the ACCSAP8 but decided to give this a try. The third edition is completely outdated but this version is spot on with current guidelines. Maybe there is some information with too much detail, then you just ignore it.I am happy with the book but wish this came in PDF version. IT IS A PAIN TO CARRY THIS MONSTER AROUND! I am even thinking of ripping the book into 5 different sections because of how uncomfortable it is to read.
⭐This book Needless to say, we all know that the Bible should be the Department of Cardiology, the book is very thick, a lot of content, you need a long time to finish. 🙂
⭐Muy didactico. Organizacion adecuada
