With contributions from recognized experts in the field, this classic work continues to serve as the premier source on the evaluation and management of cardiovascular disorders in older adults.

As advances and breakthroughs in modern medicine allow people to live longer, the number of older adults will continue to grow exponentially over the next several decades.

Cardiologists, geriatricians, and other clinicians caring for the elderly will require—at the very least—a basic understanding of cardiovascular disorders that commonly affect the older patient. In this fifth edition, each chapter has been thoroughly updated to provide a comprehensive, yet accessible overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders in older adults.

The book spans topics such as aging changes in the cardiovascular system, risk factors and epidemiology for coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies and heart failure, arrhythmias, cerebrovascular disease, and other miscellaneous subjects. The contributors supply evidence-based recommendations with strong emphasis on new research findings.

New to the fifth edition:

  • Numerous chapters comprehensively revised with new authors and/or co-authors

  • Summaries at the beginning of each chapter to facilitate easy reading

  • Discussion of the use of new antithrombotic agents in older adults

  • Important references in the bibliography highlighted for simplified access
