Seventeen chapters by different authors examine new information on valvular disease. This volume is successful, for the most part, in presenting material that is current, organized, and inclusive.
The unique feature of this book is its treatment of some topics that are not easily found elsewhere. One chapter, for example, analyzes the role of ventricular dysfunction on the outcome of valvular disease. Another reviews silent valvular lesions and offers a wealth of bedside clues. There is a very complete section on thromboembolism as it occurs with diseased and prosthetic valves, and the authors define current recommendations for anticoagulant prophylaxis. Throughout
