Overview


Over the past decade there has been a revolution in our understanding of hypercholesterolemia and its effect on clinical coronary artery disease. While a number of controversies and unresolved issues remain, the benefit of lowering blood lipid levels and, in particular, LDL cholesterol is firmly established. This handy practical guide takes this complex subject and puts it into context for the non-specialist. Summarizing recent clinical data, it outlines the basis for the current view that aggressive lipid lowering in selected individuals is an imperative in controlling coronary events. Opening with a general and broad introduction to the subject, this is followed by consideration of the biology and pathophysiology of the vascular wall, and a discussion of the basic science that underlies the impact of elevated LDL cholesterol on the function and patho-anatomy of the coronary arteries. Subsequent chapters review practical aspects of lipid management such as what to measure and when, patient selection and the role of diet and lifestyle in disease progression. Presented in a compact format for ease of reference, the general physician, general or office practitioner, trainee doctor and cardiac nurse specialist will find this an invaluable guide to be reached for frequently in the busy clinical setting.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ali Morshedi, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book reviews the role of hypercholesterolemia in atherosclerosis and the effect of therapy in decreasing the outcome events. This book of 182 pages reviews clinical trials in the last decade in a simplified manner.
Purpose: The goal is to bridge the evidence from clinical trials to implementation of these findings in everyday clinical practice. It accomplishes its goal by enhancing our basic understanding and implementation of this information at the bedside by guiding selection of patients, laboratory tests, and appropriate therapy.
Audience: The principal audience is general practitioners rather than specialists. The editor moves from the basic aspect of hyperlipidemia to more clinically relevant subjects. Readers with different medical backgrounds can enjoy this concise overview. Contributors are extensively published authorities in this field. The editor, Doctor Jonathan Abrams, professor of medicine at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, is a recognized authority in this field.
Features: The 11 chapters review the basic science and pathophysiology of hypercholesterolemia, present the evidence from multiple large-scale prospective clinical trials in a very useful and easy to understand format, and incorporate these findings into important clinical recommendations. Figures and tables summarize the information and enhance the reader's understanding.
Assessment: This short overview is an excellent source of information for clinicians interested in understanding and treating hypercholesterolemia. As part of our armamentarium to fight the epidemic of atherosclerosis, this book plays an important role in encouraging the transfer of evidence from clinical trials to clinical practice.
