Manual of Coronary Heart Diseases
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the term that describes what happens when the heart's blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of fatty substances in the coronary arteries (NHS Choices).
This book presents the latest advances in the diagnosis and management of coronary heart disease. Beginning with discussion on the risk factors of CHD, emphasis is then placed on the importance of history and physical examination in the evaluation of a patient with chest pain.
The following chapters examine the diagnosis and management of different variants of CHD, with a final section on surgical therapy.
Written by internationally recognised specialists from the University of Iowa, this practical guide includes nearly 120 images and illustrations.
