Eponyms are names given to persons, places or mythological figures. The book is a collection of the most important eponyms, each one preceded by his picture and a short biography. It is divided in four chapters. Chapter I beggins with a historical review of cardiology greatest discoveries. Chapter II deals with eponyms derived from electrocardiography and electrophysiology, while Chapter III concerns with eponyms derived from clinical observations. The final Chapter concerns with hemodynamics and cardiovascular surgery. It is my hope that the readers would enjoy expanding their humanistic knowledge, and pay a tribute to the heroes of the past who with their contributions made us more sophisticated physicians.
