About this book

In this updated fifth edition of the Atlas of Atherosclerosis and Metabolic Syndrome (formerly the Atlas of Atherosclerosis), the editors have compiled a comprehensive update on the field of atherosclerosis. This four-color atlas includes detailed legends and extensive reference listings for hundreds of illustrations, algorithms, schematics, and images. This new edition focuses more closely on metabolic syndrome, as well as comprehensively covering many other topics including diabetes and vascular risk, obesity management, dietary concerns, drug treatment, gender and ethnicity differences, and many others. The striking, four-color format combined with the breadth of information it contains make this book an invaluable resource for physicians, cardiologists, and all professionals involved in the study and treatment of atherosclerosis.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fifth edition:

“Medical world has been at war with the phenomenon in which artery walls thicken as a result of a build-up of excess fatty deposits … . Professor Scott Grundy … provides a detailed examination of the Metabolic Syndrome’s effect on artery disease. Additional topics of coverage include high-density lipoprotein metabolism, newly identified coronary risk factors, how to effectively manage obesity, and ethnic differences in the Metabolic Syndrome. Detailed legends, extensive reference listings and countless illustrations augment the text, creating a literal ‘classroom on paper.’” (John Aiello, The Electric Review, January, 2011)
