Featuring over 1,000 full-color illustrations, Practical Cardiovascular Pathology is a comprehensive reference guide to cardiac autopsy and surgical pathology of cardiovascular disease. The broad scope includes approaches to autopsy, devices, and molecular autopsy, as well as surgical cardiovascular disease, including biopsies, transplant, vasculitis, excised valves, and heart tumors. The book is geared to pathology residents and practicing surgical pathologists and focuses on illustrated practical diagnosis, including differential diagnosis.
Each chapter includes eight to ten gross and microscopic photographs with legends highlighting the pathologic features of the disease, as well as succinct text covering etiology, clinical aspects, and differential diagnosis. Key information is presented in tabular format wherever possible.
A companion website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
