Letter From the Publisher

We are extremely excited to present you with the February 2013 issue of Cardiology Review on iPad—a new way to deliver the current information you need for your daily practice. The cardiovascular landscape is evolving rapidly, and now more than ever physicians rely on the latest published research for education, guidance, and insight. This issue of Cardiology Review offers just that—and more!Cardiology Review brings clear, concise, timely reviews of current studies under the expert guidance of a prestigious Editorial Advisory Board and esteemed Editor-in-Chief Debabrata Mukherjee, MD, MS, FACC. The carefully selected editorial content, matched with cutting-edge expert commentary by these leaders in the field, is a valuable resource right at your fingertips. Plus, with iPad, we also provide multimedia and relevant resources—literally a tap away—for your use as you delve into these important topics. Then, when ready, you can go online to the CME activity and test your knowledge right away. We invite cardiologists, internal medicine physicians, family practitioners, and endocrinologists, as well as related disciplines to take full advantage of all this iPad edition has to offer, and to pass it along to their colleagues.

The February issue covers a multitude of vital topics ranging from venous thromboembolism and diabetes to acute myocardial infarction and the future and formation of the Affordable Care Act. This issue also introduces a new department called “Clinical Forum,” where we ask clinicians to discuss a hot topic, so I invite you to see what is being discussed enthusiastically by your peers right now.

Our mission is to review and report on the most relevant, timely, and thought-provoking content in the field of cardiology. The myriad of information available from journals, the Internet, and other communication vehicles can be overwhelming and largely unmanageable. With Cardiology Review on iPad, now available 6 times a year, we supply a muchneeded solution for physicians. Also look for additional news and reports on HCPLive.com, where Cardiology Review archives and current issues are located.

In our “Meeting Report” coverage in this edition, we summarize important studies from the American Society of Echocardiography 23rd Annual Echo Hawaii conference, held in late January—fulfilling our promise to bring you the most relevant, timely information from the meetings you may not be able to attend yourself. Watch for more useful summaries down the road—fresh from important meetings— and enjoy this inaugural iPad edition of Cardiology Review!

Thank you for reading!
