Fifteen years have elapsed since the publication of the original book under the same title. With the passage of time little has changed and the same conceptual mistakes continue to be made in the practice of urinary cytopathology as in the past. For this reason a much simplified new edition of this book with the application of new processing techniques has been thought to be a worthwhile undertaking . Numerous new color photographs from the file of the co-editor have replaced old black and white photographs and will hopefully support the brief text for the benefit of patients. This volume will appeal to urologists as well as pathologists, cytopathologists and related professions.The principle thrust of the book concerns coronary atherosclerosis, the pathology of which is presented in conjunction with the results of anatomic, non-invasive imaging and angiographic studies. Related chapters cover atherogenesis, presenting new insights into the pathophysiology of the vulnerable plaque, the role of progenitor cells in vascular injury, inflammation and atherogenesis, and the genomics of vascular remodeling. Additional topics covered include angina pectoris, acute coronary syndromes, healed myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure, catheter-based and surgical revascularization, and surgical treatment of myocardial infarction and its sequelae. With contributions from a diverse group of internationally-known physicians with broad experience in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease, this book will be a valuable resource for practitioners in clinical cardiology, thoracic surgery, pathology, and cardiovascular molecular research, as well as for students in training.
