1 - 2 weeks availability


Leading clinicians and researchers concisely review the significant risk factors, including dyslipidemias, hypertension, diabetes, lack of exercise, obesity, tobacco, and homocysteine, and outline the best preventive strategies available. They also offer an overview of the new paradigms in coronary artery disease pathophysiology, including the nature of the unstable atherosclerotic plaque, new strategies for the modification of plaque constituents, the importance of the endothelium in the maintenance of cardiovascular health, and the emerging roles of oxidative stress, infection, and inflammation. Comprehensive and pathbreaking, Preventive Cardiology: Strategies for the Prevention and Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease provides physicians with the understanding and tools necessary to bring the practice of preventive cardiology to their patients.
