An Atlas of Atherosclerosis:  Progression and RegressionCardiology

  • Explains and illustrates the sequence of mechanisms in the development of human atherosclerotic lesions as clinical disease develops in blood vessels over a lifetime
  • Reveals the compositions and structures of morphologically distinct lesion types in unprecedented detail
  • Provides an up-to-date, pathology-based framework of morphologies of human atherosclerotic lesions for correlating with morphologies determined by angiography, ultrasound and other clinical imaging techniques
  • Clarifies the mechanisms and shows the effect of therapeutic reductions of high blood cholesterol levels on various lesion types by means of illustrations of regressing and regressed lesions in rhesus monkeys Completely revised and updated, the Second Edition of the Atlas of Atherosclerosis Progression and Regression contains new material and new illustrations from Dr. Stary's groundbreaking work in the field of atherosclerosis diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. Over 100 photographs show arterial and lesion structure and individual components in unprecedented detail. These images allow you to compare and contrast healthy arteries with those developing and regressing lesions. They illustrate the successive steps in the natural history of human atherosclerotic disease from the microscopically visible, lipid-filled macrophages in susceptible locations of arteries to lesion forms that produce clinical symptoms.

    The book provides an up-to-date, pathology-based framework of morphologies of atherosclerotic vascular lesions that serves as a basis for correlation with morphologies determined by a variety of clinical imaging techniques. Demonstrating the evolution of arterial lesions form the clinically silent the clinically relevant, An Atlas of Atherosclerosis Progression and Regression is a teaching aid and diagnostic tool for recognizing changes in lesion progression, stabilization, or regression.
