Churchill's In Clinical Practice Series: Acute Coronary Syndromes


This title, which contains contributions from Europe in addition to the USA and Canada, distills and organizes the maze of clinical data on the diagnosis, risk stratification, treatment, and prevention of acute coronary syndromes. The book discusses pragmatically how to treat NSTEMI and STEMI, looking at some of the oldest drugs available, such as aspirin, through to the new thrombin inhibitors, lytics and such like. The book flags up many of the developments in the fields of inflammation, infection, reversal of endothelial dysfunction, thrombolysis versus primary angioplasty and so forth, and presents the evidence to support the rapidly evolving guidelines.
