Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment (Contemporary Cardiology)

by

Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment (Contemporary Cardiology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are grossly insufficient and fail to identify the majority of victims prior to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment, Dr. Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis. The text focuses on accurate, yet underutilized, measures of subclinical atherosclerosis, notably coronary artery calcium scanning and carotid intima-media thickness measurement. The authors introduce a comprehensive approach to identifying the vulnerable patients (asymptomatic individuals at risk of a near future adverse event). Additional chapters discuss future directions towards containing the epidemic of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease using innovative solutions such as preemptive interventional therapies (bioabsorbable stents) for stabilization of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques, mass unconditional Polypill therapy for population-based risk reduction, and ultimately vaccination strategies to prevent the development of atherosclerosis. Up-to-date and authoritative, Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment is a must-have for any cardiologist or primary care physician who wishes to practice modern preventive cardiology and manage the increasing number of asymptomatic atherosclerotic patients. • Outlines more accurate measures of risk (coronary artery calcium and carotid intima-media thickness) than traditional risk factors (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol) • Presents new multipronged strategies to aid in the early detection and treatment of high risk asymptomatic patients

Book News Annotation:

Preventing heart attacks is worthy of much more attention and investment than it receives in comparison to life- and dollar-gobbling treatment. The past 50 years has seen some progress in this direction from the Framingham Heart Study's concept of cardiovascular risk factors to the establishment of the American Heart Association and its programs, but it's time for new steps in prevention as heart disease still holds sway as the primary cause of death in developed countries and is a growing cause in developing countries. Dr. Naghavi, affiliated with the Houston-based Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE), is a pioneer in the endeavor to prevent heart attacks. He has brought together 55 contributions addressing the latest and most sophisticated thinking regarding risk factors and circulating markers of asymptomatic atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, non-invasive structural and functional imaging, invasive (intravascular) investigation, screening and identification of the vulnerable patient, and systemic as well as local and focal therapies.

Synopsis:

Here is a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis. Includes the authors' comprehensive approach to identifying vulnerable patients, and new strategies for early detection and treatment of high risk patients.

Synopsis:

Despite recent advances in the treatment of coronary heart disease, available screening and diagnostic methods are currently insufficient to identify the majority of potential victims prior to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment Dr. Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Association for Eradication of Heart Attack present a new paradigm for the recognition of high risk patients with the aim of preventing heart attacks rather than merely treating them. The text focuses on accurate, yet underutilized, measures of subclinical atherosclerosis, notably coronary artery calcium scanning and carotid intima-media thickness measurement. The authors review a comprehensive approach to identifying vulnerable patients and additional chapters discuss comprehensive lipid profiling and new blood markers of inflammation and atherosclerosis. Up-to-date and authoratative, Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment is a must-have for any cardiologist or primary care physician who wishes to treat and manage cardiovascular disease.
