About this book

In Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes, Christopher Cannon has brought together a highly experienced group of clinical investigators who succinctly yet comprehensively review the pathophysiology and management of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Drawing on the key results of recent clinical trials, these world-renowned experts establish state-of-the-art management guidelines for patients with ST-elevation MI or non-ST-elevation ACS. Their discussion includes a detailed review of the pathophysiology of ACS and a survey of the diagnostic tools available to assess patients. They also examine special concerns in ACS, such as the unique issues in women, with cholesterol lowering, and cost-effectiveness.
Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes captures the major advances that have occurred in our understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of patients with acute coronary syndromes. This book-the new gold standard for ACS management-is certain to help cardiologists, internists, primary care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, fellows, house staff, and students to better serve their patients with today's most efficacious treatments.






Reviews

Foreword by Eugene Braunwald, MD

"The review of the data on the diagnostic and prognostic utility of serum markers of cardiac injury is especially thorough. The treatments of thrombolytic therapy and primary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction are complete, timely, and objective...[the] section on special aspects of acute coronary syndromes summarizes well the important issues of gender bias (or lack thereof) in cardiovascular medicine and the impact of lowering cholesterol." -Annals of Internal Medicine, 18 May 1999, Reviewer: Warren Laskey, MD

"...a thorough, wide-ranging review of the current knowledge on ACS...a valuable resource for cardiologists and emergency physicians." -Circulation

"This is an excellent and concise review of the spectrum of unstable angina, ST segment elevation infarction, and ST segment depression infarction...It spends a good deal of time on explaining the serum markers for myocardial ischemia as well as their pathophysiologic differences between ST elevation and ST depression infarction and the rationale for specific treatment strategies. Data on primary angioplasty and the thrombolytic trials are reviewed in detail...The numerous tables and charts are well designed and emphasize important topics covered in the text...This book is an excellent summary of acute coronary syndromes. It is well thought out and easy to read, which allows the reader to assimilate a lot of information in a short period of time. Its clear writing and effective use of tables and graphics solidifies understanding this essential topic in cardiology."-5 stars, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"...an outstanding compendium of what is currently known about the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of acute coronary syndromes....The chapter references are extensive and up-to-date. The illustration, tables and charts are well done and easily interpreted...In summary, this is an outstanding work that should be on the reading list of everyone who deals with cardiac care. Emergency physicians and cardiologists should read it from cover to cover and there is something for everyone here." -The Journal of Emergency Medicine
