Coronary Atherosclerosis: Current Management and Treatment


The prevalence of coronary artery disease is increasing due to rising rates of obesity and the fact that a greater number of people are living longer. Coronary Atherosclerosis: Current Management and Treatment addresses this leading cause of death worldwide.

Atherosclerosis has a broad range of disease manifestations depending on the degree of the stenosis and the functional status of the coronary plaque. This volume, written by a leading international team of editors, addresses the pathophysiology of the disease, established and novel diagnostic approaches (both invasive and non-invasive), treatment methodologies (including treatment algorithms), and differing perspectives on treatment, including future therapies and long-term outcomes. The inclusion of personal perspectives from experts, full-color images and ancillary video files make this a key resource.

Key topics include:

  • Pharmacology of coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Up-to-date evidence on pathophysiology
  • Invasive and non-invasive imaging
  • Current evidence for risk stratification
  • Clinical decisionmaking

Coronary Atherosclerosis: Current Management and Treatment provides a state-of-the-art review of current knowledge to aid specialists, general physicians, and cardiologists in training, in the diagnosis, risk stratification, and management of patients with diverse presentations of coronary atherosclerosis.

ECG Holter: Guide to Electrocardiographic Interpretation


By (author): Jan Adamec, Richard Adamec

For centuries the analysis of the heart rhythm has belonged to the foundations of medical art. We know that doctors in ancient Tibet used the interpretation of the heart rate to draw prognostic conclusions?somehow a modern rationale?that deserves further attention. The rapid advancement of science is providing more and more information about the details, but the subatomic resolution of structures hides the risk and the complex procedures are fragmented into static impressions. The same has happened to the ECG. The revolutionary development, acknowledged by the Nobel Prize for Einthoven, ledfromtheanalysisofthedynamicheartratetothestaticanalysisofthe heartstream curve. It is only with the ECG Holter recording over longer periods that the cardiologists rediscovered the old dynamic. With the continuous recording of the heart rate and its periodicity, it became accessible to a new dimension, a dim- sion that requires technically well-de?ned foundations for accurate data coll- tion, detailed knowledge of the electrocardiologic particularities of arrhythmia, and medical knowledge for the translation of the results into a diagnostic synthesis. With the ECG Holter the issue is no longer just to detect an arrhythmia, but also to determine dynamic circumstance in which the critical event occurred. In fact, we investigate the trigger, the event, and the context, and we have to integrate all of that information within the clinical picture, from the pathology right through to the symptom?indeed a multi-dimensional task.

Snapshots of Hemodynamics: An aid for clinical research and graduate education (Basic Science for the Cardiologist)


By (author): Nico Westerhof, Nikos Stergiopulos, Mark I.M. Noble

Hemodynamics makes it possible to characterize in a quantitative way, the function of the heart and arterial system, thereby producing information about what genetic and molecular processes are of importance for cardiovascular function.

Snapshots of Hemodynamics: An Aid for Clinical Research and Graduate Education by Nico Westerhof, Nikos Stergiopulos and Mark I. M. Noble is a quick reference guide designed to help basic and clinical researchers as well as graduate students to understand hemodynamics. The layout of the book provides short and independent chapters that provide teaching diagrams as well as clear descriptions of the essentials of basic and applied principles of hemodynamics. References are provided at the end of each chapter for further reading and reference.

Nutritional and Metabolic Bases of Cardiovascular Disease


Extraordinary advances in the understanding of the links between nutrition, metabolism, and cardiovascular disease have prompted a systematic reappraisal of knowledge in the field. As a result, it is now imperative that clinicians who care for patients with CVD or its key risk factors have a solid understanding of the often complex interrelationships between cardiovascular health and chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity.

Written by a team of international thought leaders in cardiology, endocrinology, diabetology and nutritional science, this important new book:

  • Examines and updates the role of obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, hypertension, thrombosis, and aging in atherogenesis
  • Describes in detail the scientific and clinical evidence of the etiopathogenesis of ischemic heart disease as well as of peripheral and cerebrovascular disease
  • Focuses on the 6 topics that will be of greatest interest to readers: 1) general nutrition, 2) metabolic syndrome and diabetes, 3) hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis, 4) hypertension and cerebrovascular disease, 5) hemostasis and thrombosis, 6) aging

Throughout the book, in clear and accessible text, contributors illuminate the close relationship between dietary habits, the metabolic processes of nutrients, and their impact on the cardiovascular system, always with an eye on how the physician can use this information to implement better cardiovascular prevention and improve  patient care. Nutritional and Metabolic Bases of Cardiovascular Disease is ideal for those who need to update their knowledge of the links between nutrition, metabolism and CVD, from trainees, clinicians and clinical investigators in cardiovascular medicine to endocrinologists, diabetologists, and nutritionists.

Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease (Fundamental and Clinical Cardiology)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Although cardiovascular disease remains the leading proximate cause of death in the United States, it is now estimated that obesity may be equivalent to smoking as the leading cause of preventable death in America. In light of these statistics, this reference presents our current understanding of the epidemiology, pathology, and genetics of the obesity epidemic and its relationship to cardiovascular disease. It provides an evidence-based approach to the topic, as well as emphasizes a combined treatment strategy for patients suffering from both obesity and cardiovascular disease.
