Abstract

Fifteen reviews, some detailed, some cursory. Heavy emphasis on assessment methods, notably echocardiography and radionuclide imaging. Includes summaries of pacing indications, treatment of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, decisions for coronary artery bypass surgery, use of aortic counter pulsation. Two aspects of hypertension are reviewed: diagnosis of secondary forms; beta-adrenergic blocking agents for treatment.
