Abstract
This book provides a well-illustrated, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of Hodgkin lymphoma. Epidemiology, pathogenesis, and the role of the microenvironment are examined in detail. The initial clinical evaluation and use of staging systems are fully discussed, and prognostic factors are carefully considered. The various treatment options for first-line and relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma are presented, including the newly available treatments for recurrent disease and the management required in special clinical circumstances. Given the very high cure rates and the young age of many patients, there is an increasing need to develop better individually tailored treatment strategies that will help to avoid both early and late side-effects of treatment. Such strategies receive due attention, and clear guidance is provided on the handling of Hodgkin survivors. This book will be of great value to hematologists, oncologists, and all others with an interest in Hodgkin lymphoma.

Abstract
An ever growing population of patients are affected by cardiac disease. Most of these diseases are chronic in nature and require long term outpatient follow up. Subsequently, outpatient providers are finding themselves responsible for an increasing number of patients with cardiovascular issues. Appropriate diagnosis and management of cardiac disease is essential to providing high quality care in an efficient manner. There is a wide spectrum of providers involved in the care of these patients, many of which are not cardiologists. The Manual of Outpatient Cardiology is written in a practical, didactic format designed to deliver point-of-care information to practitioners of cardiology and assist non-cardiologists with the efficient management of cardiac disease. Highly illustrated with schematics and useful clinical figures, this book is an essential reference to all outpatient cardiology procedures.
