Therapeutic Strategies in Heart Failure is a pragmatic textbook written by active clinicians and investigators that is sharply focused on what the doctor needs to know to achieve the best possible outcome in patients with heart failure. The authors have incorporated all of the most recent definitive trial data, in a user friendly format, with frequent summary boxes and highlighted points of emphasis. The book begins with the prevention of heart failure, discusses best application of standard therapies, describes progress with current cutting edge treatments, and anticipates future therapeutic interventions. To complete the thought process, the final section deals with the avant garde issues in heart failure – the use of registry data, acute decompensated heart failure, device therapy, mechanical support for failing ventricles and a candid discussion of palliative care. The busy clinician is likely to find that Therapeutic Strategies in Heart Failure provides a useful template to optimize outcomes in the management of heart failure.
