Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This atlas of the pathology of coronary artery disease is divided into four sections covering normal anatomy of the coronary arteries, atherosclerosis, acute ischemic syndromes, and stable angina.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinicians with pictures of the reality of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. The anatomy and pathology shown in beautiful full-color pictures of the gross anatomy as well as the microscopic anatomy are important to clinicians.
Audience: All practicing physicians, especially cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons, will find the book fascinating. They deal with transesophageal echocardiograms, coronary angiograms, and ultrasound images. The pictures in this atlas show the reality of the atherosclerotic process. It would be of interest to cardiology fellows particularly, since they are learning the various imaging techniques but have little opportunity for microscopy and pathologic anatomy. The author is a well-recognized authority in the field of cardiac pathology.
Features: The first section shows and describes the normal coronary artery anatomy with beautiful color pictures of the gross specimens. There are also many color diagrams throughout which are very helpful. The second portion of the text covers the process and pathology of atherosclerosis in coronary artery disease. The third and fourth sections compare and contrast acute ischemic syndromes with stable angina pectoris. There are many full color pathologic and microscopic pictures showing the importance of thrombus in these various syndromes.
Assessment: The anatomic pictures are correlated with clinical presentations in coronary artery disease. The tables are very helpful. The color drawings are excellent. The clinical descriptions of the various syndromes are necessarily short because of the emphasis on the beautiful pictures. Many tables are included to summarize important points. This atlas goes beyond the text by Thomas N. James, Anatomy of the Coronary Arteries (Hoeber-Harper, 1960) because it adds microscopic color photographs as well as clinical correlations. In addition, the James text is probably no longer readily available. This is a welcome addition to the literature on coronary artery disease.

An illustrated atlas of the pathology of atherosclerosis and of the clinical manifestations of ischemic heart disease, for practicing cardiologists. Color and b&w photos and other types of images illustrate a macroscopic view of coronary artery pathology as seen at autopsy. Illustrations of histology have been kept to a minimum, consistent with describing structure. Contains chapters on anatomy of coronary arteries, atherosclerosis, acute ischemic syndromes and coronary disease progression, and stable angina. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
