"This is a valuable addition to the literature on the treatment of the sequelae of myocardial infarction. The author has managed to effectively synthesize information from a number of divergent disciplines into a coherent and clinically relevant book... A broad array of potential complications which can result from myocardial infarction is explored. Evidence-based recommendations for managing these complications are provided in a concise and thorough fashion. All chapters are accompanied by an impressive array of illustrations, as well as photographs of relevant imaging findings and gross pathologic specimens. " - Doody's, 4 Stars ****
