Cardiology’s cornerstone text – thoroughly updated to reflect the latest clinical perspectives and cutting-edge topics
Hailed for its authority, currency, and ability to translate the latest technical and clinical advances into clinical application, Hurst’s The Heart is the field’s landmark text and cardiology’s longest continuously published reference text. A previous edition of this trusted classic was described by Doody’s as “an outstanding choice for those who strive for a firm foundation in cardiovascular medicine, as well as an up-to-date and user-friendly source that addresses every discipline in the field.”

The Fourteenth Edition has been completely updated to reflect the latest technical, therapeutic, and clinical advances, while still maintaining a strong focus on patient care.
