Atherosclerosis is a subject of enormous contention for cardiologists and in general for all medical doctors. With this publication we have given you a concise "state-of-the-art" look at the world of atheroma. Many other elements could be included and so it is only a brief analysis of "today" (the preventive medicine era) and "tomorrow" (transforming the cure medicine era into the care medicine era) but also remembering "yesterday" (the ex-cathedra medicine era). Let's hope our arteries are free from atherosclerotic events: have a good read!

In recent years, the understanding of the pathophysiological processes of atherosclerosis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the vessel wall being the leading cause for mortality in industrial countries, has tremendously increased. The feasibility of translating such knowledge to novel therapeutic approaches is currently being explored at various levels. This book highlights advances in atherosclerosis and links these to relevant therapeutic strategies. It compiles and details cutting-edge research in cardiovascular medicine from internationally renowned authors.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
With atherosclerosis being the number one cause of death in the western world, this handbook and ready reference provides a comprehensive account of the different stages and factors in the development of the atherosclerotic plaque. Each chapter is written by experts in the field and highlights the role of specific mediators of atherosclerotic plaque development, as well as potential therapeutic targets. A large amount of this up-to-date information is conveyed by way of tables and schematic figures, in a readily comprehensible manner. A must-have for master and PhD students, researchers, MDs and lecturers in vascular biology and cardiology, as well as for academics and scientists in the pharmaceutical industry.

This state-of-the-art reference discusses nonsurgical treatment to prevent, arrest, or reverse the progression of atherosclerosis-outlining specific methods to reduce coronary risk factors, including hypercholesterolemia, cigarette smoking, hypertension, hyperinsulinemia, and hypoestrogenemia. Suggests that medical approaches may be more effective than bypass surgery or angioplasty in managing coronary artery disease! Presenting atherosclerosis as a diffuse, nonisolated disease that cannot be adequately treated by focusing on individual lesions, Medical Management of Atherosclerosis analyzes the effect of gonadal hormones, especially estrogens, on the process of atherosclerosis describes pharmacological interventions combined with blood pressure lowering, lipid reduction, and hormone therapies furnishes guidelines for bringing atherosclerosis prevention regimens into clinical practice addresses the cost effectiveness of atherosclerosis intervention examines the potential of genetics and gene therapy in treating atherosclerosis and much more! Containing over 1000 bibliographic citations, tables, and drawings, Medical Management of Atherosclerosis is an important resource for cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, internists, family practice and primary care physicians, and interns, residents, fellows, and medical school students in these disciplines.
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects medium and large-sized arteries.
Author: Slavica Mitrovska
Publisher: Nova Biomedical Books
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects medium and large-sized arteries. It begins after birth and the progression depends on several factors - traditional triad: hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes mellitus, then age, sex, smoking and sedentary life-style. At the beginning atherosclerosis is asymptomatic and we cannot estimate appropriately its frequency, but its complications - coronary artery diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, peripheral arterial diseases, which occur late, are responsible for more than half of the yearly mortality in the world. Unfortunately, sudden cardiac death may be the first clinical manifestation. The incipient event is endothelial dysfunction, as a result of injury, caused by high level of cholesterol [especially w-density-lipoprotein LDL], hyperglycemia, hypertension, smoking, infectious agents, and toxins. Endothelial cells overexpress adhesion molecules - vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 [VCAM-1] and increases recruitment of inflammatory cells - monocytes [Mo], T-cells and subsequent release of monocyte chemo-attractant protein-1 [MCP-1] that results in additional leucocytes recruitment. Injured endothelium allows migration of inflammatory cells that release cytokines and lipids into the intima. That leads to cytokine-mediated progression of atherosclerosis and oxidation of LDL. Macrophages [MP] take up oxi-LDL and form foam-cell. They have metabolic activity and produce cytokines, proliferation of smooth muscle cells and formulate athero-fibrose plaque. Atherosclerotic plaque is composed of superficial layer - fibrose cap and lipid core, that consists of foam cells, extracellular lipid and necrotic cellular debris. It progresses as a result of accumulation of lipid and proliferation of smooth muscle cells and results in luminal narrowing of the arteries which leads to compromised blood and oxygen supply to the tissues. The gradually growing atherosclerotic plaques have thick fibrose cap and are stable. They cause symptoms of stable angina. Rapidly growing plaques cause unstable coronary artery disease. These plaques are mainly composed of lipids and have tiny fibrose cap that is prone to fissuring or rupture. Intraplaque hemorrhage from microvessels in plaque initiate platelet adhesion and activation of coagulation cascade that leads to platelet thrombus formation, i.e. promote thrombogenesis. Knowledge of the pathogenesis of the atherothrombosis modifies the diagnostic and therapeutic approach. Conclusion: Attention should be focused on the management of three points: 1. Endothelial dysfunction [correction of modified risk factors: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, life-style-smoking, physical activity and food], 2. Atherosclerosis [modification of the inflammatory cascade, i.e. elimination of inflammatory pathways and inhibition of oxidation of LDL], 3. Thrombogenesis [inhibition of platelet adhesion, activation and aggregation].
