Overview

The work reveals critical understandings about the natural history of plaque, the correlation of vascular lesions and clinical syndromes, and the utility of new imaging methods. Diagnostic imaging atherosclerotic prevention and treatment will be shaped by these new modalities. Continuous scrutiny by the Committee on Vascular Lesions is culminating in scientific meetings every few years and is summarised in published statements. The present statement - The Vulnerable Atherosclerotic Plaque: Understanding, Identification & Modification - is the second of these documents to focus on atherosclerosis pathogenesis and pathological clinical implications.

As a multi-disciplinary resource, this book edited by Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, chairman of the committee, consists of twenty four chapters written by experts in mechanical and engineering, pathology, neurology, imaging, clinical and vascular biology, physics, radiology and surgery. This invaluable reference tool identifies problems, perspectives and critical new questions for evaluation and dissemination.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jack Stanko, MS, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This monograph is part of a series on various topics sponsored by the American Heart Association. It discusses present-day correlations of clinical imaging and pathology in many atherosclerotic syndromes and appears to be a publication of an earlier symposium.
Purpose: The purpose of this text is twofold. First, it brings the reader up-to-date with the current pathological literature regarding the atherosclerotic process in the common arterial trees (coronary, carotid, and aortoiliac). Second, it discusses the various imaging modalities, their usefulness in evaluating the atherosclerotic disease process, and their correlation to its pathology. This classical perspective of the clinical-pathological basis of a disease process is well accomplished in this monograph.
Audience: This book will appeal to a broad audience of students and clinicians in multiple specialties like cardiology, pathology, vascular surgery, etc. This publication is the collaborative effort of a superb group of international experts gathered from multiple disciplines.
Features: The book is well written and illustrated and printed on high quality glossy paper. The topics are well demarcated into discrete chapters and each is extensively referenced. The table of contents and index are complete.
Assessment: This monograph is well written and up-to-date in the classical, clinical-pathological ideas relating to the atherosclerotic disease process. The many vascular imaging modalities are clearly represented and correlated to the pathology. I would recommend it without reservation to any and all serious students and clinicians with patients who have atherosclerotic vascular disease.
