This book focuses on some of the new clinical and biological insights related to HIV-associated metabolic and cardiovascular complications in the HAART era. The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has altered cardiovascular manifestations in HIV. On the one hand, HAART has significantly improved the quality of life of HIV-infected patients. On the other hand, the early data have raised some concerns, creating an intriguing clinical scenery.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George T Deriso, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The editors have brought together experts in the field to create this well organized and comprehensive book on HIV-related cardiovascular disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to disseminate knowledge in the field so that healthcare professionals can pool their expertise and develop a successful management strategy for cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients.
Audience: The audience is primarily cardiovascular and infectious disease professionals, but the book is useful for any healthcare professionals involved in the care of HIV-infected individuals.
Features: The book covers previously described cardiovascular manifestations and complications of HIV infection, but the primary focus is on new clinical and biological insight related to HIV-associated metabolic and cardiovascular complications in the highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) era. Topics include peripheral, coronary, and cerebrovascular disease as well as cardiovascular complications, cardiac surgery, and guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular risk in the HIV infected patient. The appendixes contain easy to use references for cardiovascular monitoring, risk stratification, primary prevention guidelines, and a drug interaction table between antiretroviral and commonly used cardiovascular agents. The book is full of well integrated and easy to follow graphs, tables, and figures, which include high quality photographs, color plates, radiographs, and echocardiograph images.
Assessment: The editors have succeeded in providing a comprehensive book on cardiovascular disease in the HIV infected patient. It will aid healthcare professionals involved in their care in recognition of pathology and formulation of treatment strategies in this complex patient population.
