Atlas of Atherosclerosis and Metabolic Syndrome by Scott M. Grundy (auth.), Scott M. Grundy (eds.)

By Scott M. Grundy (auth.), Scott M. Grundy (eds.)

In this up to date 5th version of the Atlas of Atherosclerosis and Metabolic Syndrome (formerly the Atlas of Atherosclerosis), the editors have compiled a entire replace at the box of atherosclerosis. This four-color atlas contains designated legends and vast reference listings for enormous quantities of illustrations, algorithms, schematics, and pictures. This new version focuses extra heavily on metabolic syndrome, in addition to comprehensively overlaying many different themes together with diabetes and vascular possibility, weight problems administration, nutritional issues, drug remedy, gender and ethnicity variations, and so on. The notable, four-color structure mixed with the breadth of data it comprises make this booklet a useful source for physicians, cardiologists, and all execs all for the learn and remedy of atherosclerosis.

Example text

Various estimates suggest that between one-half and two-thirds of deaths among people with diabetes are due to cardiovascular causes such as ischemic heart disease and stroke. Compared to those without diabetes, the risk of coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease is two to four times higher in the diabetic population, particularly among women. Similarly, the risk for CVDs is elevated in those with the metabolic syndrome. Many now see diabetes as having an equivalent risk for future CVD events as that associated with previously diagnosed coronary heart disease.

Potential Weaknesses in the Metabolic Syndrome as a Predictor for CVD Risk Figure 2-24. Potential weaknesses in using the metabolic syndrome to predict cardiovascular disease (CVD). This table, which lists potential weaknesses of the metabolic syndrome for the prediction of CVD, highlights the need for the metabolic syndrome to be used and appreciated in context. Specifically, the metabolic syndrome 1) was not designed as a global risk-prediction tool; 2) should be interpreted in the context of other important risk factors and risk-prediction tools; and 3) is designed to indicate the presence of elevated long-term risk for both diabetes and CVD.

Nary heart disease (CHD), those with CHD equivalents (noncoronary forms of atherosclerotic disease and diabetes), and those who have a 1-year risk for CHD as determined by Framingham risk scoring. A combination of risk factor counting and Framingham risk scoring defines the other categories of risk. Risk factors that modify treatment goals for atherogenic lipoproteins include cigarette smoking, hypertension (blood pressure > 140/90 mm Hg or on antihypertensive medication), low HDL-C (< 40 mg/dL), family history of premature CHD (CHD in a male first-degree relative aged < 55 years or CHD in a female first-degree relative aged < 65 years), and age (men aged > 45 years, women aged > 55 years).
