The book is dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of every aspect of coronary arterial medicine from cardiac signs and symptoms through imaging and the genetic basis for coronary disease to surgery, interventions, treatment and also to preventive : Springer London. Featuring expert guidance from Drs. James de Lemos and Torbjørn Omland, as well as other globally known leaders in cardiology, Chronic Coronary Artery Disease covers every aspect of managing and treating patients suffering from chronic coronary syndromes. This brand-new companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease was designed as a stand-alone reference for . Coronary Artery Disease: Introduction. The global and local burden of ischemic heart disease is significant. In the Philippines, cardiovascular diseases ranked among the top 10 leading causes of morbidity and was the leading cause of mortality in CAD is commonly due to obstruction of the coronary arteries, usually the epicardial arteries, by atheromatous Cited by: 4. The book is dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of every aspect of coronary arterial medicine from cardiac signs and symptoms through imaging and the genetic basis for coronary disease to surgery, interventions, treatment and also to preventive cardiology.5/5(1).
Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as coronary heart disease (CHD) or ischemic heart disease (IHD), involves the reduction of blood flow to the heart muscle due to build-up of plaque in the arteries of the heart. It is the most common of the cardiovascular diseases. Types include stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac death. This page includes the following topics and synonyms: Cardiac Risk Management, CAD Risk Management, Cardiovascular Risk Reduction, Coronary Risk Management, Coronary Heart Disease Prevention, Prevention of Coronary Events, . Cardiovascular Medicine is a book containing the following 30 chapters: Anatomy, Circulatory Disorders, Congestive Heart Failure, Coronary Artery Disease. Coronary Artery Disease: From Biology to Clinical Practice links the most important basic concepts of atherosclerosis pathophysiology to treatment management of coronary artery disease. Comprehensive coverage starts with the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms of the disease, including molecular and genetic mechanisms, cells interaction and inflammation.
Heart attack (ischaemic heart disease or coronary heart disease) as one of a group of cardiovascular diseases, is one of the main causes of death (over 30 million/year) in the developed and developing world. The dual aim of this book is to review the well-established risk factors in CHD and to look forward to disease prevention, equipped with lessons from the past.4/5(3). Coronary heart disease is a group of diseases that are related to heart and poor cardiovascular health. Factors that lead to the development of coronary artery disease are obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle. Atherosclerosis or the build-up of fibrofatty plaque and white blood cells in the arteries is the underlying cause of this group of diseases. Coronary artery disease is more likely to occur as you get older, especially after age Family history of heart disease. If your parents have heart disease (especially if they were diagnosed with heart disease before age 50), you have an increased risk of developing it. These help define your basic likelihood for developing heart disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes impaired blood flow in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Also called coronary heart disease (CHD), CAD is the most common form of heart disease and.
