Summary
As fresh evidence mounts that preventive measures produce a considerable decrease in the incidence of primary and secondary cardiac events and mortality, there is growing understanding that health care providers must initiate preventive strategies in the management and care of their patients. In Preventive Cardiology: Strategies for the Prevention and Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease, leading clinicians and researchers-many internationally recognized in their area of research-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 pathology, 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. Among the particular strategies discussed in detail are pharmacologic therapies, aspirin and antiplatelet agents, exercise testing for identifying at-risk patients, and the possibilities of electron beam tomography. 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 prevention to their patients
