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.
