Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Elias G. Eleftheriadis, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This new book is devoted to atherosclerosis in general and coronary artery disease in particular. It covers, in great detail, the molecular, cellular, pathophysiological and clinical aspects of the atherosclerotic process. All aspects are presented, from the clinical presentation to the latest recommended therapies of the associated clinical syndromes, carefully documented by an extensive bibliography.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive assessment of coronary atherosclerosis and ischemic heart disease from the research bench to bedside, giving as much depth to the underlying pathophysiology as to the clinical management. Considering the amount of new information that has been accumulated during recent years and the significance of the topic for the public interest, such a publication is more than welcome.
Audience: The audience includes everyone involved in the care of people with coronary syndromes. It is a valuable reference to basic scientists and clinicians oriented in academics, private practice, or both. Fellows in cardiovascular diseases will find this book a valid source of information about the current concepts of coronary ischemic syndromes.
Features: The numerous comprehensive tables and figures make the text more enjoyable to read. The extensive, current, and pertinent bibliography makes the two-volume book an outstanding reference.
Assessment: This is an outstanding reference edition, very well written by more than 200 well-known authorities in the field. This book should be easily accessible to all scientists, trainees, and specialists in the field of cardiovascular diseases.
