Product Description:
Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic  
atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early  
detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are  
grossly insufficient and fail to identify the majority of victims prior
 to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic  
Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment, Dr. Morteza  
Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack  
Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the  
screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis.
The text focuses on accurate, yet underutilized, measures of  
subclinical atherosclerosis, notably coronary artery calcium scanning  
and carotid intima-media thickness measurement. The authors introduce a
 comprehensive approach to identifying the vulnerable patients  
(asymptomatic individuals at risk of a near future adverse event).  
Additional chapters discuss future directions towards containing the  
epidemic of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease using innovative  
solutions such as preemptive interventional therapies (bioabsorbable  
stents) for stabilization of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques, mass  
unconditional Polypill therapy for population-based risk reduction, and
 ultimately vaccination strategies to prevent the development of  
Up-to-date and authoritative, Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis:  
Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment is a must-have for any  
cardiologist or primary care physician who wishes to practice modern  
preventive cardiology and manage the increasing number of asymptomatic  
atherosclerotic patients.

• Outlines more accurate measures of risk (coronary artery calcium  and
carotid intima-media thickness) than traditional risk factors (total  
cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol)
• Presents new multipronged strategies to aid in the early detection  and treatment of high risk asymptomatic patients
