Summary Reflects the most recent standards for drug management as well as the latest in new technologies. Each cardiovascular-problem-based section offers a chapter on pharmacologic treatment (with a minimum of pathophysiology), a chapter on catheter-based or minimally invasive interventions, and a discussion of surgical options. Includes a new chapter on gene therapy and stem cell therapy, plus new chapters on many other rapidly developing areas of practice
