Acute coronary syndromes: A handbook for clinical practice is a concise, yet comprehensive overview of these frequent coronary events.
During the last decade, research on acute coronary syndromes has exploded and major advances have been made in the diagnosis, risk stratification and management of these patients. This is mainly due to the enormous incidence of acute coronary syndromes, but also because the prognosis still remains critical even with the benefit of our modern strategies. This segment of cardiovascular medicine is a rapidly evolving field and, with contributions from both North American and European experts, this book ensures that clinicians, interventional cardiologists and surgeons are all fully acquainted with the latest developments in acute coronary syndromes.
