Medical management of heart failure has undergone great changes in the last few years.
There is very little comprehensive information about co-ordinated care of patients with heart failure.
There has been a growth in heart failure cardiology and in the community treatment of heart failure, which have not been taught in medical schools or teaching hospitals.
Traditionally surgical procedures have revolved predominantly around the transplant procedure, but more non-transplant methods are gaining in popularity.
This book set will provide the full spectrum of medical options, intensive care management, rehabilitation and surgical options in heart failure from transplant to the more noninvasive procedures in the interventional radiology department.
The contributing authors to each volume are all key opinion leaders in the medical and surgical management of heart failure.
Each volume of this two volume set is designed to integrate with its sister but also be the definitive guide to either the surgical or medical management of heart failure.
