♥ Book Title : Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition (Volume 5)
☯ Full Synopsis : "Cardiovascular, respiratory, and related conditions cause more than 40 percent of all deaths globally, and their substantial burden is rising, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Their burden extends well beyond health effects to include significant economic and societal consequences. Most of these conditions are related, share risk factors, and have common control measures at the clinical, population, and policy levels. Lives can be extended and improved when these diseases are prevented, detected, and managed. This volume summarizes current knowledge and presents evidence-based interventions that are effective, cost-effective, and scalable in LMICs."Article| Dorairaj Prabhakaran| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : High-Density Lipoproteins
☯ Full Synopsis : "A complete guide to the role of high-density lipoproteins (HDL)in new and emerging therapies With high-density lipoproteins (HDL) playing an increasing rolein cardiovascular disease prevention, there is a growing need foran in-depth look at HDL and its clinical value. This booksummarizes the current state of knowledge in the field, providingfor the first time a comprehensive, systematic, stylisticallycoherent, and up-to-date review of the composition, structure,heterogeneity, metabolism, epidemiology, genetics, and function ofHDL. Divided into three main parts, High-Density Lipoproteins firstexamines normal HDL particles, then describes defective HDL, andfinally addresses the therapeutic normalization of subnormal levelsand defective biological activities of this lipoprotein class. Thebook highlights the functional properties of HDL, which arerelevant to the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis and thrombosis,and discusses the compositional and metabolic heterogeneity of HDLparticles. Readers will come away with a clear understanding of the role ofHDL in biological processes, the potential value of functional HDLas a therapeutic target, and how current and emerging therapies arepoised to influence the treatment of heart disease in thefuture."Article| Anatol Kontush| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Computed Tomography of the Coronary Arteries
☯ Full Synopsis : "Most cardiologists and radiologists are not acquainted with CT coronary imaging. This has inspired the compilation of this book, which is the culmination of the collaborated effort of cardiologists and radiologists to draw up a practical CT book explaining the basic principles and applications of CT by use of many illustrations and tables and avoiding complicated technical details of CT imaging. This highly-illustrated book will serve its goal as a concise, quick reference for understanding and interpretation of CT-coronary imaging."Article| de Feyter Pim| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Lipid Management
☯ Full Synopsis : "This timely, concise title provides an important update on clinical lipid management. Using information from recent clinical trials and in special populations, the book begins by offering an easy-to-read overview of LDL, HDL, and triglyceride metabolism and the genetics of lipid disorders. The link between inflammation and lipids, and how this relates to atherosclerosis development, is also addressed, as are the measures of subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with abnormal lipid levels. Lipid abnormalities in children, with a particular focus on vulnerable populations (with an emphasis on ethnicity and childhood obesity), are covered. The treatment goals and approaches for managing lipids in the clinic are thoroughly discussed, emphasizing the important role of statin use and addressing controversies of lipid management in special populations such as heart failure, end stage kidney disease and fatty liver disease. Of special note, an important update on how new HIV medications impact lipid levels is provided. In all, Lipid Management: From Basics to Clinic, is an invaluable, handy resource for understanding changes in lipids in different populations and for sharpening the clinical approach to managing complicated lipid cases."Article| Hussein Yassine| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Cholesterol in Atherosclerosis and Coronary Heart Disease
☯ Full Synopsis : "Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found among the lipids (fats) in the bloodstream and in all the body's cells. It's an important part of a healthy body because it's used to form cell membranes, some hormones and is needed for other functions. But, a high level of cholesterol in the blood - hypercholesterolemia - is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack. Cholesterol and other fats can't dissolve in the blood. They have to be transported to and from the cells by special carriers called lipoproteins. There are several kinds, but the key ones are Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL). Low-density lipoprotein is the major cholesterol carrier in the blood. If too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the walls of the arteries feeding the heart and brain. Together with other substances it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog those arteries. This field is alive with exciting new research in all areas including frontal advances in the areas of managing cholesterol as well as cholesterol lowering drugs. disease."Article| Jean P. Kovala| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Johns Hopkins Textbook of Dyslipidemia
☯ Full Synopsis : "The first comprehensive text on dyslipidemia from a major academic institution, this book covers all aspects of dyslipidemia as it relates to human disease, including coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, and pancreatitis. The material is presented in a clinician-friendly format and includes references for additional reading. Reflecting current guidelines from the National Cholesterol Education Program, the book explains why, when, and how to treat dyslipidemia. Coverage includes dietary treatment, drug treatment, and recommendations for special populations such as patients with coronary heart disease, patients at high risk for coronary heart disease, patients with diabetes, women, older adults, young adults, and racial and ethnic groups."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Genetics of Dyslipidemia
☯ Full Synopsis : "Profound mortality rates, due to cardiovascular disease, are a worldwide problem. Cardiovascular disease results from complications of a silent and chronic arterial disease: atherosclerosis. The challenge for the practitioner is adapting diagnostic and therapeutic responses to prevent this common and complex disease. Dyslipidemia, are disorders of the metabolism of soluble transporters of lipids in extracellular spaces of the human body (including blood), called lipoproteins. They are major cardiovascular risk factors, causally related with atherosclerosis and are themselves multifactorial diseases, resulting from interactions between genetic and environmental factors. The study of genetic factors has recently taken a new path with the study of DNA as an experimental object. More than fifty genes of lipoprotein metabolism have been identified in both their physiological actions and their contribution to the pathogenesis of human dyslipidemia. The diversity of observations has refined our current knowledge of the control of lipid metabolism and energy homeostasis in living organisms beyond the limits of the cardiovascular system (e.g., brain, immune system, and development). These studies have given way to a shake-up of former phenotypic classifications, distinguishing new entities, defining targeted therapeutic strategies, providing a basis for different patterns of disease distribution in human populations."Article| Pascale Benlian| Statement ..."
