Vascular Disease and Affective Disorders

Overview

Mood disorders affecting patients with cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease have to be considered as a major topic in public health because of the high prevalence and the negative impact on patients' outcome and general health costs. Despite the publication of many studies, a coherent approach to the clinical implications is certainly missing for psychiatrists, physicians, geriatricians and neurologists who dedicate time listening to patients' affective symptoms. While the relationship between affective ...

Overview

Mood disorders affecting patients with cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease have to be considered as a major topic in public health because of the high prevalence and the negative impact on patients' outcome and general health costs. Despite the publication of many studies, a coherent approach to the clinical implications is certainly missing for psychiatrists, physicians, geriatricians and neurologists who dedicate time listening to patients' affective symptoms. While the relationship between affective disorders and vascular disease is well known in clinical practice, the etiopathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy remain uncertain. Clear guidelines do not exist. This new work presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date review and exploration of the subject available. Bringing together a team of distinguished contributors, it will be a welcome and important source of reference for clinicians while also inspiring future research.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent new book covering an exciting area of research in psychiatry: vascular mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of psychopathology. Written and edited by internationally recognized researchers, the book is an extremely valuable contribution to the psychiatric literature.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is "... to place before physicians of all specialties, and all health care professionals with an interest in either or both vascular disease and affective disorders the evidence of this close linkage." The editors have succeeded in producing a useful and relevant review of this interesting and certainly overlapping literature.
Audience: The audience, although not specifically stated by the editors, includes psychiatrists, psychologists, and researchers in this area. It would also be useful for neurologists, cardiologists, and primary care physicians.
Features: The book's 17 chapters are grouped into two sections. The first section covers cardiovascular disease and affective disorders with chapters on epidemiology, panic disorder and other anxiety disorders, cardiac surgery, fatty acid phospholipid metabolism and treatment. The second section covers cerebrovascular disease and affective disorders with relevant topics such as vascular depression, basal ganglia and mood, and post-stroke depression. Each chapter is referenced with useful and up-to-date citations. There is also a helpful subject index.
Assessment: This is a very interesting and timely review of vascular mechanisms in psychopathology. Clinicians, researchers, and trainees will benefit from reading and referring to this book. I highly recommend it.
