Heart failure is a serious condition caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure. It usually occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly, most commonly caused by heart attack, high blood pressure or cardiomyopathy (heart disease).

This textbook is a comprehensive guide to the latest advances in the diagnosis and management of heart failure.

Comprising nearly 1000 pages, the book features 15 sections, beginning with discussion on clinical issues of heart failure, followed by imaging techniques.

Each of the following sections covers a different disorder or disease that subsequently may lead to heart failure. Topics include coronary artery disease, stroke, arrhythmia, hypertension, nutritional aspects, cardio-oncology, and much more.

The book concludes with rehabilitation, legal aspects, and future directions.

Authored by internationally recognised experts in the field, the text is further enhanced by clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.
