Summary "With detailed contributions from 45 renowned international authorities, this Third Edition stands alone as the most comprehensive, contemporary view of the biology, physiology, and management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) - offering 32 chapters that span the state-of-the science in the field and provide intriguing discussions on CRP and other disease markers, microcirculation, stem cell therapy, and the development of specialized centers for ACS treatment." "Assessing the cost-efficacy and value of new diagnostic tools and therapies for ACS, this guide serves as an invaluable source for anyone engaged in the care of patients with these conditions."--BOOK JACKET
