Synopsis: The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine is the definitive reference work for every cardiology trainee, general cardiologist, and specialist cardiologist as they develop their core knowledge of the subject. Based on the Core Curriculum of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), this resource contains much of the evidence base of the subject, and reflects ESC guidelines, Task Force reports and scientific statements, which guide current practice. The second edition also features significant new chapters on specific context-based heart disease.
The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine comprises 38 sections flowing from the clinical presentation of the patient and initial investigations, through comprehensive descriptions of disease processes and pathophysiological states, and finally to the complex interrelationship between the heart and the mind. Each section begins with a summary of the chapter featuring key learning points, and ends with personal reflections from the authors about the standing of their subject and its likely development during the next half decade. Such comprehensive coverage of the subject area makes The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine the must-have, must-use resource for everyone currently working in the field.
The online version of The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine contains the full text of the print edition (which can be browsed by the contents list, the index, or searched), links from references in the text to external sources (via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef), and all figures and illustrations from the print edition, downloadable into PowerPoint. In addition, the online version also provides multiple-choice questions, which can be completed to gain European Board of Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC)-accredited CME points, as well as over 200 additional high-quality videos of procedures and techniques, exclusive to the online edition.

He is now the Chairman of the Division of Cardiac and Vascular Sciences at St. George's University of London. His major speciality is cardiac arrhythmias but he is also much involved in clinical cardiac electrophysiology, cardiac pacemakers, risk stratification in post myocardial infarction, heart failure and cardiomyopathy patients. He has a major interest in cardiovascular safety of cardiac and non-cardiac drugs. John has given over 1500 lectures to national and international audiences, written more than 1000 peer review papers and over 250 detailed reviews. He has authored and edited numerous books.

He turned to cardiology at 24 after witnessing a case of sudden cardiac death in his father's office, is not only an interventional cardiologist but also a keen researcher studying the genetics of atherosclerosis in animal models and the role of endothelial as well as inflammatory cells in vascular dysfunction and coronary occlusion. He is involved in multicentre studies looking into the mechanisms of new drugs on vascular dysfunction in Zurich or stents that attract stem cells as proof-of-concept trials with limited patients.
Professor Serruys is Professor of Interventional Cardiology and Head of Interventional Department at Erasmus MC University Medical Center, Rotterdam. His primary research interests are coronary artery disease and interventional cardiology, for which he received numerous awards.

The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine is a teaching text that contains the knowledge base needed by every general cardiologist and specialist cardiologist as a background to their specialty interest. The textbook content is based on the Core Curriculum of the European Society of Cardiology, making the textbook essential reading for all cardiology trainees. The textbook contains much of the evidence base that is used to derive the practice guidelines published by the European Society of Cardiology, and its contents will be used as a basis for testing the knowledge of trainees who seek to qualify as cardiologists and of cardiologists who must re-accredit their status as cardiovascular health care providers. The book contains 38 chapters flowing from the clinical and investigation interface with the patient through comprehensive desciprtion of disease processes and pathophysiological states and finally to the complex interrelationship between the heart and the mind. The text and design is intended to produce a book that is readable and readily understandable. The text is interspersed with many full color diagrams and simple tabulations. Line diagrams are re-drawn to produce a consistent feel to the book. Chapters relating to cardiac imaging, for example, echocardiography, computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance, and nuclear cardiology are richly illustrated. The book is comprised of a print and on-line version. The text in the print version has comprehensive referencing, but the references themselves are available only from the on-line edition where the citations are directly linked to PubMed in order to facilitate retrieval of abstracts and full texts, where available. In both versions, there is a "further reading" list, which consists of major reference works, practice guidelines, especially those published by the European Society of Cardiology, scientific statements, and task force reports. The on-line version includes video images that are represented by a static photograph in the print version. Each chapter begins with a summary of the chapter and a listing of the chapter contents, and is completed with a few paragraphs of personal reflection from the authors about the standing of their subject and its likely development during the next five years. . .
