This substantially revised second edition contains new chapters on the role of GPIIb/IIIa blockade during acute coronary syndromes or with fibrinolytic therapy during acute myocardial infarctions, and updated and expanded information on the latest trials of GP IIb/IIIa inhibition during percutaneous coronary intervention. Additional improvements include a new chapter on outcomes with chronic oral GP IIb/IIIa blockade following acute coronary syndromes, discussion of GPIIb/IIIa blockade with other platelet and thrombin inhibitors, and a review of the potential effects beyond inhibition of platelet aggregation. Platelet Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in Cardiovascular Disease, Second Edition offers today's physicians, cardiologists, emergency room doctors, and basic scientists the most complete and authoritative review of the state-of-the-art in glycoprotein Iib/IIIa receptor inhibitor use.
