Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James M Schipper, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is an overview of contemporary thought on the pathophysiology, assessment, and treatment of lipid disorders.
Purpose: Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in industrialized nations and a major healthcare concern. Fortunately, with early diagnosis and treatment, many of these deaths are preventable. This book seeks to motivate practitioners to improve their care of their hyperlipidemic patients.
Audience: This book is directed at medical students, midlevel providers, physicians in training, and practicing clinicians who require a thorough understanding of dyslipidemia.
Features: A discussion of basic lipid metabolism and the pathophysiology of plaque formation begins the book. Screening and risk assessment are covered, though the focus is on laboratory evaluation as opposed to stress testing. Noninvasive treatment, both lifestyle-based and pharmacologic, comprises the largest portion of the book. Several sections are dedicated to special populations, including patients with familial disorders or diabetes, women, cardiac transplant recipients, and others. Numerous, high quality diagrams and tables improve understanding and aid in location of information. The book is well referenced and indexed.
Assessment: This book upholds the high standards that would be expected of a companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease. It is easy to read, yet provides an in-depth understanding of lipid disorders. It would be a welcome addition to the library of anyone focused on preventive medicine and the treatment of patients with dyslipidemia.
