About this book


In this second edition of his highly acclaimed book, Christopher P. Cannon, MD, and a team of preeminent clinical investigators have thoroughly revised and expanded every chapter to reflect the recent explosion of clinical trials on the management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). These world-renowned experts review: the newer tests, such as C reactive protein; a multimarker approach to diagnosis and risk stratification; new antiplatelet agents; and combinations of thrombolytic-anti- thrombotic regimens. They also discuss the latest developments in interventional cardiology (early invasive approach in higher risk ACS patients and the promise of drug-coated stents), and analyze cost-effectiveness in clinical trials to choose appropriate therapies. Current trial data are included, along with practical recommendations on how these data may be applied in daily practice.
Comprehensive and authoritative, Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes, Second Edition, succinctly presents cardiologists, internists, primary care and emergency physicians, fellows, and residents with an up-to-the-minute review of the many recent advances that have transformed our understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of patients with acute coronary syndromes.
