About this book

Introduction

'Cardiovascular Disease' is the fourth monograph in the series on management and treatment in major clinical sub specialties or patient groups. Each book is complete in its own right and has been prepared by practising physicians with specialist experience and a particular interest in treatment and management. The series has been prepared to fill a gap between standard textbooks of medicine and therapeutics and research reviews, symposia and original articles in specialist fields. The volumes aim to give authoritative, up-to-date advice on treatment and management which will be of use to both specialists and non-specialists and allow recent advances and developments to be seen in the context of contemporary clinical practice. The first three volumes dealt respectively with gastroin­ testinal diseases, rheumatic diseases and treatment in the elderly. Cardiovascular disease covers the range of common diseases affect­ ing the heart and the circulation. In view of the importance of coronary heart disease as a cause of death and morbidity a substan­ tial part of the book is devoted to description of the factors asso­ ciated with coronary artery disease (hyperlipidaemia and hypertension) and their management by drug and non-drug means. A further five chapters are devoted to the clinical syndromes asso­ ciated with coronary heart disease and their management. These not only consider acute 'in hospital' management, including sur­ gery, but also address epidemiological questions, including approaches to secondary prevention of myocardial infarction.
