"In this great classic of cardiac literature, Corvisart (1755-1821) for the first time so ordered the symptomatology of heart disease that differentiation between cardiac and pulmonary disease was made possible. He distinguished between cardiac hypertrophy and dilatation, he divided the clinical course of cardiac failure into three phases, and he showed the relationship between cause and effect in valvular disease and cardiac failure. Corvisart was personal physician to Napoleon and enjoyed a close and loyal relationship with him." (Heirs of Hippocrates 1126 - 1st ed.). Austin 547. Reynolds I.1043.
