Reviewer: Vijay V. Yeldandi, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive text covering basic science, epidemiology, and clinical approaches to cardiovascular complications of HIV disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to help improve the care of individuals with HIV disease and stimulate investigational work in causes and treatment of cardiovascular complications of HIV infection.
Audience: It is intended for cardiologists, immunologists, infectious disease specialists, and healthcare providers who care for HIV infected individuals. It would also be useful for basic scientists and clinical investigators contemplating research in the area of cardiovascular complications of HIV disease.
Features: Although there are very few color illustrations, the black-and-white illustrations, charts, and tables are adequate. In five parts, this book covers epidemiology; clinical syndromes; pathogenesis, including a discussion of the mechanisms of cardiac toxicity of pharmacotherapy in HIV disease; diagnostic and management issues; and special pediatric considerations (along with a mother's perspective).
Assessment: This book is a welcome addition to the literature on HIV disease. This is the first comprehensive text dealing with cardiovascular complications of HIV disease. A superb blend of basic science, epidemiology, and clinically-oriented material and is a recommended resource for primary care, specialist clinicians, and investigators interested in the cardiovascular complications of HIV disease.

A guide for practitioners and researchers in cardiology, primary-care, and immunology to the cardiovascular complications associated with HIV infection, emphasizing that many of them can be corrected if found early but are often occult and attributed to other organ systems. In addition to overviews and conclusions, covers specific clinical syndromes, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
