Systemic Disease and the Heart

Show Summary Details


Many systemic diseases affect the heart either directly or indirectly. This chapter summarizes the systemic diseases most frequently encountered in clinical practice that affect the heart. An important issue is how the systemic disease modifies either the diagnosis or the management of the cardiac problem and how the cardiac disease, in turn, modifies the approach to the systemic disease.

Chapter.  3875 words.  Illustrated.
