About this book

In this second edition of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, Michael T. Johnstone, MD, and Aristidis Veves, MD, have updated and expanded their very successful classic text to reflect new research, advances in clinical care, and the growing recognition that diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Written for the practicing clinician as a comprehensive review of diabetic vascular disease, the book both explains the basic pathophysiology of the disease and details the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. On the science side, the authors have added new chapters on the role of estrogens in diabetic vascular disease, PARP activation and nitrosative stress in the development of the cardiovascular system, adiponectin and the cardiovascular system, and PPARs and their emerging role in vascular biology, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. On the clinical side, readers will find new chapters on percutaneous interventional therapy in cardiac and peripheral vascular disease, cardiovascular surgery in diabetic patients, and therapeutic interventions to improve endothelial function in diabetes. The chapters on diabetes and hypertension, heart failure, and coronary artery disease have been extensively revised, offering a cutting-edge discussion of retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and microcirculation of the diabetic foot.
Authoritative and comprehensive, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, Second Edition offers practicing physicians a cutting-edge scientific and clinical review of diabetic cardiovascular disease, providing both a deeper understanding of its pathology and all the day-to-day practical knowledge needed to treat patients effectively.

Reviews

Reviews of the Second Edition

". . .provides a great resource for readers needing to learn more about the relationship between these disease entities. The book is recommended for any series student of diabetes. In particular, cardiologists and cardiology fellows, as well as cardiovascular surgeons and fellows, should be familiar with the material in it. It is also a valuable resource for those with more advanced knowledge of diabetes, such as endocrinologists and researchers active in the field of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases." -The New England Journal of Medicine

"This second edition is a timely work by many eminent contributors. It summarizes the vast knowledge about diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease into one volume." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

From Reviews of the First Edition...

"All practicing clinicians would find some value in this text, but especially cardiologists and internal medicine practitioners as well as vascular specialists. Family medicine physicians and medical students would find it a good reference. . .This is indeed a comprehensive review of the vascular implications of diabetes. It is an important book because of the increasing prevalence of diabetes in our society. The book provides a good starting point for researchers since one can be struck after reading it that there are many opportunities for investigation presented here. It is a worthwhile addition to the medical literature. "-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"...covers the range of problems, both clinical and biochemical, that arise in the cardiovascular system of those with diabetes. I highly recommend the book to interested medical students and residents and all clinicians who work with patients with diabetes." - Canadian Family Physician

"...could serve as a clinical textbook as well as a source and stimulus for further research in the field of diabetes associated cardiovascular disease. It addresses the needs of general physicians, specialists and medical students." -Diabetologia

"...particularly timely...fills a need in the scientific literature that is only now beginning to be appreciated." -Preventive Cardiology

"....highly recommended to clinicians as well as to researchers interested in diabetes." -Acta Cardiologica

"...a comprehensive review of the vascular implications of diabetes...a worthwhile addition to the medical literature." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"...could serve as a clinical textbook as well as a source and stimulus for further research in the field of diabetes associated cardiovascular disease. It addresses the needs of general physicians, specialists and medical students." -Diabetologia
