Atherothrombosis Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Atherothrombosis and Coronary Artery Disease
Second Edition
by Valentin Fuster

Atherothrombosis and Coronary Artery Disease provides comprehensive coverage of current approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of atherothrombosis and its coronary and noncoronary complications. This edition has been thoroughly updated, sharply focused on clinical information, and trimmed to one manageable volume.

Coverage begins with a review of risk factors and prevention, emphasising lipid abnormalities, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, and obesity. Subsequent sections examine the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, markers and imaging, acute coronary syndromes, chronic stable angina, and noncoronary atherothrombosis. Clinical presentations, medical management, and the latest interventional strategies are included. Features:

  • Includes coverage of risk factors and prevention; emphasizing lipid abnormalities, hypertension, smoking, diabetes and obesity
  • Examines the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, markers and imaging, acute coronary syndromes, chronic stable angina and noncoronary atherothrombosis
  • Includes clinical presentations, medical management and the latest interventional strategies

New to this second edition:

  • More clinically oriented
  • Trimmed to one manageable volume
  • Includes only the basic science that is clinically relevant
