Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes severe disability and more death than any other disease in affluent societies, including cancer. The medical conditions associated with it are angina, ischaemia, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, heart failure and sudden death. Choosing the appropriate investigation to confirm a diagnosis helps to assess risk and determine the correct treatment path. GPs also need to know the effective life-style and risk-factor modifications in addition to advocating the best medical therapy.

Endothelium and Cardiovascular Diseases: Vascular Biology and Clinical Syndromes provides an in-depth examination of the role of endothelium and endothelial dysfunction in normal vascular function, and in a broad spectrum of clinical syndromes, from atherosclerosis, to cognitive disturbances and eclampsia. The endothelium is a major participant in the pathophysiology of diseases, such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and hypertension, and these entities are responsible for the largest part of cardiovascular mortality and morbidly. Over the last decade major new discoveries and concepts involving the endothelium have come to light. This important reference collects this data in an easy to reference resource. Written by known experts, and covering all aspects of endothelial function in health and disease, this reference represents an assembly of recent knowledge that is essential to both basic investigators and clinicians. Provides a complete overview of endothelial function in health and diseases, along with an assessment of new information Includes coverage of groundbreaking areas, including the artificial LDL particle, the development of a new anti-erectile dysfunction agent, a vaccine for atherosclerosis, coronary calcification associated with red wine, and the interplay of endoplasmic reticulum/oxidative stress Explores the genetic features of endothelium and the interaction between basic knowledge and clinical syndromes

Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography remain the key tools in the management of patients with coronary heart disease. Interventional cardiology is now routinely performed outside of major cardiac centres, often in small district hospitals. General training in cardiology rarely offers more than the opportunity to assist a more senior operator to perform angioplasty procedures, so a textbook for the non-specialist has become essential reading. Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology is a definitive text spanning the whole spectrum of interventional cardiology procedures, including management of patients with coronary artery disease, one of the leading killers in western society. Written by an expert faculty of international authors, it offers guidance on all aspects of interventional cardiology according to the European curriculum and guidelines for practice, and covers the very latest techniques and devices to provide practical, evidence-based guidance on treating a full range of coronary lesions. The book also covers structural heart disease and new developments in heart valve disease, which were previously in the realm of cardiac surgeons but are now being treated by cardiologists using less invasive methods.
