The vast amount of data presented in multiple clinical trials and their application to daily medical practice represents a significant challenge in medicine. Thus, every practicing cardiology consultant faces the question of how to keep up with the never-ending supply of new heterogeneous information in the form of weekly journal manuscripts, in addition to endless free printings from scientific or business sources. The third edition of Management of Complex Cardiovascular Problems: The Evidence-Based Medicine Approach confronts this challenge and from the first page to the last becomes a very useful and concise tool that will assist physicians to be aware of evidence-based therapies and their use in patient care in the field of cardiology. The editors, led by Dr Thach Nguyen and well-recognized authors in the field of cardiology, have accomplished a monumental task and have produced a book that is well organized, easy to read, and enhanced with tables and that also includes an extensive amount of current useful references.
