Cardiovascular Disease in the Elderly provides user-friendly advice in a field that has limited evidence but contributes significantly to the workload not only of cardiologists but also of elderly care physicians and general practitioners

Wherever possible, published guidelines are incorporated to ensure the book reflects current recommended management.
