Overview

Written by the world’s foremost authorities, this volume provides comprehensive coverage of current approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of atherothrombosis and its coronary and noncoronary complications. This edition has been thoroughly updated, sharply focused on clinical information, and trimmed to one manageable volume.

Coverage begins with a review of risk factors and prevention, emphasizing lipid abnormalities, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, and obesity. Subsequent sections examine the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, markers and imaging, acute coronary syndromes, chronic stable angina, and noncoronary atherothrombosis. Clinical presentations, medical management, and the latest interventional strategies are included.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Ali F. Aboufares, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This comprehensive book focuses on an essential aspect of cardiovascular medicine, namely systemic atherosclerosis. The editors and publisher realized the necessity for an update to the 1996 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe in detail the principles of atherosclerosis and thrombosis as they relate to coronary artery vascular disease. The book also expands on the latest developments in the genetic and molecular disciplines related to vascular medicine.
Audience: It is intended for the broad audience of scientists and physicians involved in patient care or engaged in research related to atherosclerotic vascular disease.
Features: The book is divided into six major sections that include 105 chapters compiled by several hundred recognized authors from diverse specialties. Section I details risk factors and prevention strategies. This is followed by a description of the pathogenesis and clinical aspects of the disease in its stable and unstable forms with emphasis on diagnostic and management algorithms, all in a well done updated format. The final section deals with atherosclerosis in the noncoronary circulations with a special emphasis on carotid artery disease.
Assessment: This is a valuable addition to the medical literature and an excellent reference for those interested in specialized education in the field. It represents an updated encyclopedic summary of what a clinician or a basic scientist might need to know about atherothrombosis and coronary artery disease.
