With the gradual transition from the technology-driven, intervention-oriented perspective of the last decade to a new, preventive, molecular-based perspective, Joanne Foody, MD, has amassed new preventive measures for use in everyday practices in this new edition of Preventive Cardiology. This new edition provides practical information for the management of patients at risk for cardiovascular disease and also offers an overview of the new paradigms in the pathophysiology of coronary artery disease (CAD). Divided into three parts, Part I focuses on the atherosclerotic process, the important central role of the endothelium in the maintenance of cardiovascular health, and the role of inflammation in CAD. Part II provides insights into gender-specific aspects of CAD risk and concentrates on traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Part III provides an overview of approaches for the identification of patients at risk for CAD events and reviews of stress testing in patients with CAD and the important role of antiplatelets in coronary disease. Preventive Cardiology: Insights Into the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease, Second Edition provides an overview of the exciting opportunities to prevent the progression, and in some instances to regress the process, of coronary atherosclerosis and incorporate these strategies into the daily practice of clinical medicine. This valuable new edition provides clinical cardiologists, internists, primary care providers, and allied health care professionals with the tools and understanding necessary for their practice in preventive cardiology.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Each chapter quotes the major studies carried out in this field and clearly illustrates the results achieved, using tables, figures, and, noteworthy, complete references. ... Equally exact and evidence-based is the analysis of the pharmacological management of cardiovascular diseases; this entirely original chapter compares the pharmaeconomics of cardiovascular medicine against that of an intervention-based management, and underlines the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary model for risk factor prevention and control. ... The editorial form is clear, the contents and index complete..." - Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Disease"Dr. Foody authored or coauthored three of the eighteen chapters, and has sufficiently edited the other chapters to insure a continuity of presentation and a minimum of duplication....The pathophysiology chapters on plaque instability and endothelial function and the clinical chapters on women and coronary artery disease and on exercise testing and risk assessment are clear, informative, and presented in a format that is interesting and clinically valuable." - Preventive Cardiology"Preventive Cardiology: Strategies for the Prevention and Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease is a well edited, informative, and up-to-date treatment of issues of importance and clinical relevance. The selection of topics and authors, and the editing of the chapters, have resulted in an interesting and useful book. Dr. JoAnne Micale Foody is to be congratulated, and her book added to the short list of valuable texts for clinicians on preventive cardiology." -Preventive CardiologyFrom the reviews of the second edition:"This is a multiauthored reference on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of and preventive strategies for coronary artery disease. . Cardiologists, primary care providers, trainees, and midlevel practitioners caring for those at risk for coronary artery disease are the intended audience. . The graphs and tables, which include risk factor modification guidelines, are useful for quick reference during daily practice. This book can be used daily by the intended audience for primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease." (Gary A Daniel, Doody's Review Service, March, 2008)
