SUMMARY

a comprehensive and real picture of the complexities of ischemic heart disease, both to the person who deals in day to day practice with its problems, as well as to the This book presents a comprehensive picture of isยญ chemic heart disease to those who, either as practitionยญ student and resident who tries to develop firm concepts ers or students, deal with the varied facets of this comยญ regarding the varied states observed in this common plex subject. It has meaning to the fields of clinical condition. cardiology, radiology, thoracic surgery, and pathology. After an introductory chapter on the anatomy of the coronary blood vessels, there follows a chapter on coroยญ nary arteriography. The latter considers techniques, inยญ dications, examples of normal and abnormal patterns, and complications of this procedure. Specific chapters deal with variations in the sites of origin and distribution of coronary arteries, both as seen angiographically and anatomically. Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries which may engender states of ischemic heart disease are presented. The principal thrust of the work concerns the main arena of ischemic heart disease, namely, coronary athยญ erosclerosis. The pathology of coronary atherosclerosis is presented in conjunction with the results of anatomic and angiographic studies. Major chapters discuss the subjects of angina pectoยญ ris, acute myocardial infarction, healed myocardial inยญ farction, surgical "revascularization" with indications and the postoperative states, and the surgical treatment of myocardial infarction and its sequelae
