Common Problems in Cardiology is a comprehensive guide to common cardiology disorders. Each disorder is described by its pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, risks, treatment and management.

The book is divided into 23 chapters, each covering a specific disorder, from chest pain and hypertension, to pericardial diseases and cardioembolic stroke. A complete differential diagnosis and analysis is provided with each symptom. Information on cardiovascular risk and non cardiac surgery, preoperative cardiac diagnostic testing, preoperative assessment of patients with valvular heart disease, and revascularisation prior to noncardiac surgery is also provided.

Common Problems in Cardiology covers perioperative management of coronary stents, beta-blockade, statin use, pacemakers and anticoagulation management, as well as preoperative assessment of candidates for kidney and liver transplantation.

Edited by Kanu Chatterjee, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa and Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the University of California, this authoritative and comprehensive book is an ideal resource for postgraduates, interns, general physicians and practising cardiologists.
