Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 11th Edition

  • Douglas P Zipes


This is the 11th edition of the textbook, Heart Disease: A textbook of cardiovascular medicine. As with each edition of this reference work, international experts have totally revised every chapter. In addition, multiple new chapters have been added to recognize the ever-expanding role of cardiology into areas such as oncology, chronic lung disease, environmental toxins, catheter-based treatments of congenital heart disease, and other topics. Some sections have been revised for clarity, such as arrhythmias; some have been expanded, such as diseases of heart valves; others have had a shift of emphasis, such as congenital heart disease for the adult. Finally, to maintain vitality of standard topics, new authors have replaced more than a third of those who have tirelessly written for previous editions, in chapters on ethics, personalized and precision medicine, imaging, obesity, diabetes, sleep disordered breathing, autonomics and other areas.
