Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Moran, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: "This atlas, one in a series of atlases of heart disease, covers acute myocardial infarction and other acute ischemic syndromes. This multiauthored book's 11 chapters cover the spectrum of ischemic heart disease, from the mechanism of culprit vascular lesions, the coagulation system, and the effect of reperfusion, as well as the economic considerations of treatments. This is a beautifully prepared book, with many illustrations, almost all in color. "
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overview of key concepts in ischemic heart disease, all in well illustrated pictures designed to make the concepts clear.
Audience: This would be of value to medical students in cardiology and cardiology fellows. More importantly, it would be very helpful to their medical school teachers.
Features: The atlas contains cartoons, micrographs, tables, flow charts, and angiograms, almost all very well illustrated in color to demonstrate concepts in ischemic heart disease. The chapter on the coagulation cascade is especially worthwhile with molecular drawings. There is also a very good chapter on the acute coronary syndrome (unstable angina/non Q wave myocardial infarction). All of the color illustrations are accompanied by well written and focused discussions. The references are classic, and many of them are combined into tables in various chapters, so that at a glance, one can compare the effects of various treatments and various clinical trials.
Assessment: This is the second edition of this particular atlas of in the series and is a worthwhile addition to the medical literature, because of the old dictum, "a picture is worth a thousand words." This should be a very useful book for clinicians, but probably best appreciated by medical school teachers.
