Addressing the pathology of the heart and cardiovascular system from a forensic perspective, Pathology of the Heart and Sudden Death in Forensic Investigations guides the pathologist toward the effective resolution of cases. It critically reviews pertinent facts by revisiting pathologic findings and comparing them to etiopathogenic hypotheses, proposing new ones substantiated by previously misinterpreted or ignored facts. It also presents recent findings on pediatric pathology. The book describes the basic functional anatomy of the heart, combining views on examination from clinical and pathological perspectives. It systematically examines patho-physiologic changes and specific heart diseases and emphasizes the benefits of communication between forensic specialists and clinicians in determining cause of death. The book also assists the forensic pathologist in the presentation and interpretation of the sequence of events in a court of law. Containing 150 color photographs that demonstrate forensic aspects of cardiopathology, the book offers a single source of pertinent information that is essential for every forensic pathologist to have when investigating a case.

"Fineschi, Baroldi, and Silver filled up a gap in the forensic literature with this can be recommended without reserve as a reference work especially for forensic pathologists." -T. Fracasso in International Journal of Legal Medicine "This book gives a profound insight into a multitude of cardiopathological aspects not only from a forensic perspective but also an overall perspective of death investigation. It is of practical relevance for all those involved in post mortem examinations and it may be of special interest to clinicians with a focus on cardiology." -Judith Schroeer, Specialist in Forensic Medicine, Germany
