Braunwald’s Heart Disease welcomes two new Editors


Paris, August 31, 2019

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specializing in science and health, is pleased to welcome Deepak L. Bhatt, MD, MPH, and Scott D. Solomon, MD, to the prestigious Braunwald’s Heart Disease editorial team, as planning for the 12th edition begins.

Trusted by generations of cardiologists for the latest, most reliable guidance in the field, Braunwald's Heart Disease continues to be one of the leading sources of information on rapidly changing clinical science, clinical and translational research, and evidence-based medicine.

The editors salute Douglas Zipes, MD, who contributed to Braunwald’s Heart Disease since the second edition and served as Editor-in-Chief for two editions. His energy, expertise and experience contributed enormously to the success of this book and its companions. As Dr. Zipes leaves the editorial group to pursue other interests, Gordon Tomaselli, MD, now leads the electrophysiology and arrhythmia sections of heart disease.

Drs. Bhatt and Solomon will join as the new co-editors for the upcoming 12th edition. They both have made major contributions to contemporary cardiovascular medicine, and each has several areas of expertise that they bring to the editorial team.

“We are fortunate to have such talented, accomplished and experienced clinician-investigators and teachers join us,” said Peter Libby, MD, who will take the role as lead editor of the12th edition. “Their contributions will help us continue the tradition of excellence established by Dr. Eugene Braunwald, ensuring that the high quality of the 12th edition and its usefulness to practitioners and trainees for learning is upheld.”

Dr. Bhatt, Executive Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Programs, Brigham and Women’s Hospital Heart and Vascular Center, and Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, has authored over 1,250 publications and is the Editor of Cardiovascular Intervention: A Companion to Braunwald’s Heart Disease.

“What an incredible honor and joy it is to be joining this all-star team of Braunwald’s Heart Disease Editors,” Dr. Bhatt said.

Dr. Solomon is The Edward D. Frohlich Distinguished Chair, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Senior Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Solomon has authored more than 600 peer-reviewed articles, reviews and editorials, three textbooks of cardiac imaging, including Essential Echocardiography: A Companion to Braunwald’s Heart Disease (2018), and the Echocardiography sections for the 10th and 11th editions of Braunwald’s Heart Disease.

“It is a distinct honor to join this extraordinary team on what is arguably the premiere educational source in cardiovascular medicine,” said Dr. Solomon.

Editors of Braunwald's Heart Disease, 12th edition, also include:

  • Peter Libby, MD, Senior Physician, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Mallinckrodt Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School;
  • Robert Bonow, MD, Max and Lilly Goldberg Distinguished Professor of Cardiology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine;
  • Douglas L. Mann, MD, Chief, Cardiovascular Division, Lewin Chair and Professor of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, Cardiologist-in-Chief, Barnes Jewish Hospital; and
  • Gordon F. Tomaselli, MD, The Marilyn & Stanley M. Katz Dean, The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer, Montefiore Medicine.

Braunwald’s Heart Disease, 11th edition, is available to purchase in both single volume and two-volume formats. The print copy of the book includes the enhanced digital version e-book, also available via elsevierhealth.com for purchase by itself, and at industry events and conferences, including ESC 2019.
