Encyclopedia of Heart Diseases, by M. Gabriel Khan, MD, contains 91 different topics, from “The Ageing Heart” through “Women and Heart Disease and Stroke.” These topics are further divided into relevant sections on pathophysiology, diagnosis, related clinical trials, prevention strategies, and treatment. Most topics are covered quite comprehensively, and some include a historical review section and a “Perspective,” which assesses the significance of the cardiovascular issue covered.
