Book News Annotation:
Caplan (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center), and Hurst and Chimowitz (Emory U. School of Medicine) offer a practical, clinical, and relatively concise source of information about pathologies and complications related to the interdependence of the heart and brain, for cardiologists, internists, and neurologists who need knowledge of one another's disciplines. The first three chapters consider neurological findings in heart disease patients. The following two chapters cover neurological complications of cardiac surgery and cardiac procedures, and the last two chapters describe cardiac, cardiovascular, and neurological findings in patients who have coronary artery and cartoid artery disease.
