Review quote

From the reviews: "The use of ablation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation has captured the greatest attention in journals and at national meetings, and it is a major focus of this book. ... I congratulate the editors for a timely and important book. ... this book may appeal primarily to the interventional clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, it would be a worthwhile investment for the surgeon, internist, or cardiologist with an interest in this rapidly evolving and important topic." (Richard L. Page, The New England Journal of Medicine, September, 2008) "This comprehensive review of atrial fibrillation focuses on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, latest technologies, indications for treatment, and treatment. ... is an excellent source of knowledge for clinicians and researchers in various specialties such as cardiology, cardiac surgery, internal medicine, and other allied medical professions, who will be involved in the care of these patients. ... This timely book, written by eminent authors, provides a state-of-the-art review of atrial fibrillation." (Carlos D Giraldo, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008)show more
