Since publication of the First Edition, advances in the diagnosis and prevention and treatment strategies of the vulnerable plaque have necessitated this greatly expanded second edition. With several new chapters covering mainly diagnostic and treatment options, The Handbook of the Vulnerable Plaque will remain the benchmark text for all interventional cardiologists treating vulnerable patients by providing the physician with comprehensive insight into the world of the vulnerable plaque.
'… ground-breaking handbook … offers a definitive study of this phenomenon.' - Electronic Review
'Handbook of the Vulnerable Plaque is the most comprehensive assessment available in the field. Small in size, it is printed on fine paper, is easy to read, and contains numerous illustrations of imaging scans and pathological specimens that are of the finest quality.' - James Goldstein M.D., New England Journal of Medicine, June 2005
