Acute Coronary Syndromes
Third Edition
edited by
Eric J. Topol

Acute Coronary Syndromes is abounding with figures and graphs that support key data.

Acute Coronary Syndromes, Third Edition contains 7 new chapters on topics including:

  • the genomics of acute myocardial infarction
  • the use of CRP, myeloperoxidase, N-tyrosine, and other disease markers
  • new arterial inflammatory markers
  • the enhancement of microcirculatory perfusion in the coronary bed
  • the impact of diabetes and metabolic syndrome on the development of ACS
  • cardiogenic shock and Killip Class III
  • the use of pluripotent stem cells
  • BNP and proBNPAudience
Acute Coronary Syndromes stands alone as the most comprehensive, contemporary view of the biology, physiology, and management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS)-offering 32 chapters that span the state-of-the science in the field and provide intriguing discussions on CRP and other disease markers, microcirculation, stem cell therapy, and the development of specialized centers for ACS treatment.
